As other's have said, you should absoutly stop taking those pecocet right away, as it can cause severe long term problems. Just think if someone found out, the cops would be called, then they will offer you a smaller charges if you give up who gave you the meds, and you would be so desprate that you do, then your friend ends up in jail with big charges and in the end you both end up in drug court paying lots and lots of fees, drug tested 2-3 times a week, you will be refused any pain treatment with narcotics, and seeing a parole officer twice a week, being forced into inpatient rehab instead and/or jail time. And it will be many years before your cleared of charges all because you decided to take someone else's meds. And if you think it wouldn't happen to you, it DOES. My friend is (was) a high school teacher and her husband is the superintendent, and she got in HUGE trouble with pain meds and was arrested AT the high school, where it embarrassed herself and her husband. These are people with very nice house and cars and quite a bit of money, she worked her way from welfare up to this nice life and lost it all cause of pain meds. And she absoutly regrets putting her family through all this and is still fighting with her husband where they use to be very happy, but the court trouble has brought severe tension between them and he has lost all trust for her. I refered this friend to my Suboxone doctor and she has been doing great ever since, my Suboxone doctor is an addictionoligist, and he sees me not for addiction but for severe dependence and is tapering me off of all meds.
I know your thinking that htis stuff will not happen to me, so did all of the other people who thought it couldnt happen and it did. Do you really wanna take the chances of never getting any pain control? Remember that the label on the prescript
ion bottle is NOT a suggestion, but they are the directions, either follow them or call your doctor and ask them if they can change it. Getting pain treatment is getting so hard for people with real chronic pain cause of drug diversion, that there are literally people lining up ath e methadone clinic just to receive something for thier pain at all cause doctors wont trust them cause they had a few patients that abused the system, and it's the few patients that abuse them that lets thousands of us suffering cause we cant find someone to treat us or way under medicate us. Now remember I see an addiction doctor and I am NOT an addict, but yet I am not embarrassed at all to say I see one, he has been the greatest thing to my health and pain ever, actually I'm going to go see him this morning in a few hours, his office is a good one and half hours away but I only see him once every 2 months. Well I hope you make the right choice. Throw away the percocets, and call your doctor TODAY about
upping the lyrica and about
getting your vicodins back, and if they say no to the vicodin then it sounds to me like they're already starting to not trust you for reason.
