Hello L5! Welcome to the Chronic Pain forum! You will love it here! Can you tell us alittle bit more about
your pain history...what causes your pain? I'm a guessing that you have back problems from DDD? Are you seeing a PM or a PCD (Primary Care Doc)? It looks like you are in a tight spot, but you should not have to worry about
that happening again after you get on there schedule. One thing that I do....is to suffer alittle bit and hold onto a few extra pain meds, so when something like this happens, you will have a backup when needed. Also you may ask your Dr to perscribe a lower dose so that he can write the script
at the same time as your regular script
. I'm on Oxycontin, and my Dr wrote me a script
of 60 of the 40mg...I believe they can only do this every 30 days, but they can also write for a lower dose in the same month. Even if it is for the same type of med. They look at it as though you are getting a completly different med. I would make sure you discuss this with your PCD and tell him what happened to you because of the policy change they have. Sometimes my refill hits on a weekend, or the PCD is on vacation....so I make sure I call it in early, so that I don't have to do without....in any case I have extras that will get me by. There will be others along in a while with probably better advice than I have to offer at this time, so keep checking here often, and give us a little more information if you can. Again...welcome!
What mg of Percocet are you taking? I'm on #10 325mg X2 or as needed,... plus the Oxycontin 30mg X2
