You don’t have to take any meds

Just because the staff recommends something does not mean you have to take it. This is especially true of pain medication. Your nurse may swiftly mention she’s adding a pain medication to your IV to make you more comfortable. But if you’re not in much pain, keep in mind that most meds in the emergency room are three or four times more expensive than they would be at the pharmacy. Saying yes to that pain medication may have just cost you hundreds of dollars.
