Hi I am new here sort of as I use to visit this forum a year or so ago and then went away due to nothing anyone here did! Just life as we know it took me out of the game for a bit. Anyway wanted to get that in here first but to reply to your question I wonder if it has anything to do with Hello-kitty's post about not making certain unapproved meds?
I have heard and read many many problems pertaining to the availability of any of the oxy's lately. I remember seeing at a quickk glance on another pain forum someone wanting to be alerted when Oxy was back in the pharms.
As if we dont get put thru enough each month getting dressed,riding hours for some to get to a Doc and sitting in those all to comfy office chairs 4 sometimes hours and then having to return to get a script rewritten?
I know for most of us this is one of the scariest times. I just got accepted as a patient in a PM clinic. I was on 10/650 hydrocodone 4 times a day. For my first new script he did one change. He changed it to Percocet 10/325 says they match gram for gram but seems to at stonger on his patents.
WIth being new at the PM clinic he says this is just the first step of evaulation. The next appt he will adjust as nessesary. Hopefully up, meds now don't cut it. I don't want to be pain free thats wishful thinking I just want to be able to feel some relief. I just hope all these doctors are being well read on the issues with the shortages. For all our sakes.
I have heard from one person at work (who doesn't know I have CP) his opinion was "Well I guess people who get hurt have to take stronger replacement drugs" if you can believe it he laughed. I'm sitting in the background thinking this boy is so ignorant! I don't want stronger drugs I need to work, clean my house, drive and be a mother and wife. He seemed to feel like its a way to get a free high.
This issues can drive most of us CP'er to the breaking point.
