[[DiscreditedTrope They are getting quite rare nowadays]] as most medical regulating bodies are able to electronically track a physician's prescribing history and flag anything suspicious. In fact, there have been cases of doctors withholding nacotics from legitimate pain patients for fear of appearing like a DrFeelgood.

The TropeNamer is the Music/MotleyCrue song, in which the titular doctor does many things (including making cocaine for the Mexican mob.) Not to be confused with the ArethaFranklin song or the British pub rock band.

* ''Series/{{House}}'': Dr. Gregory House is his own Dr. Feelgood, what with the Vicodin addiction and all. However, due to the rules against doctors writing prescriptions for themselves, he usually has Wilson or one of his minions get the goods for him.

They occasionally find this is true of the patients they're treating that week; one episode had them discover a working Mom was filling a Ritalin prescription for her children without the knowledge of her family so she could take the pills herself for the buzz.
