I live in the Tampa area and use a Publix pharmacy for my 15's...the pharmacist advised me to check a few days before my next appointment to be sure that they'll have them. My experience with Publix pharmacies has always been good--very thoughtful and caring.
I only had trouble with my oxycodone 15 mg. for one month, since then I have had no problems finding them...Maybe it's a regional thing...I hope this doesn't happen again, I think my Dr. is changing me to the 30 mg. oxycodone on my next visit...Which happens to be the day of my birthday...
April 19th if anyone wants to send anything...
I'll give you my adress if you want to send gifts...Ha Ha
Just kidding...I hope everyone has a great day..
By the way, my glucose numbers are still all over the place even with the medication taken 2 times a day... But it's still early yet...
The only good thing is that now I don't think about my back and leg pain as often..now I worry about blood glucose levels...What a trade-off!!
We are all in the same boat...unfortunatley it seems like it's sinking...
Post Lamenectomy Syndrome
120 mg. Methadone daily
60 mg. Oxycodone daily

Metformin 500 mg. once daily

My dad was getting his pain medication through the VA the last three months they have had a shortage. They have been giving him a higher dose that he had to split in half.
My pharmacist said it had something to do with the FDA made a one drug company recall all of there medications.
Thats all I've heard so far.
Next week when I see the PM I will have him try and put me on medication that is not at all involved in the recall.
Its gotta suck to be without pain meds. I would scream as most of us would.
