Unhappy Inmate's required needed medication STOPPED! HELP!!!

My boyfriend is in prison and they took him off his medication, he is going down hill fast, and the effects will be irreversible! He has severe psoriosis and crippling arthritis. He is suppose to take methantraxate and an Enbrel shot weekly. Tucker has taken his Enbrel away, and it has been a few months. He is getting bad. Someone please help me. We just need Tucker prison, in Arkansas, to put him back on his medication. I have contact with my boyfriend’s Dr. and he can verify what he takes, and why he absolutely needs it. Thank you.

I would go to your DOC website and find out who is in charge of medical and call them. I did for my man when he was having health care issues. Don't be surprised if they transfer him though. They transfered my man shortly after I called. He had medical where he was but they transfered him to a higher level facility but this one has 24 hour medical. I never said who I was just that I was calling about (insert name) inmate number, and that I was very concerned because (insert issues here) That should at least get the ball rolling for him. When they know someone on the outside is watching they seem to move faster. I was very professional and to the point.
