I need some advice concerning a prescript
ion. I have a GP who prescribes pain meds each month. I have gone to him for over 2 years. I have signed a pain contract with him, however he never has done a urine test or pill count the whole time I have seen him.
Last week I was extremely sick with some type of stomach bug. I was vomitting continously for 14 hours then had extreme headache and nausea for 2 days, then started throwing up again on Friday with extreme back pain. My husband took me to the ER. They rehydrated me, gave me pain meds through my IV and sent me home. They said I probably had a virus. I specifically asked for a prescription for phenegran (anti-nausea medicine) which they gave me. They also wrote a small prescription for a low dose pain medicine. The same pain medicine I already take just in a lower dose. I did not ask for the pain medicine. The prescriptions were wrote in a way that the phenegran was on a seperate prescription sheet (I filled this one after I got home), while the pain medicine was printed on a sheet with a prescription for another anti-nausea medicine.
So my question is... will I get in trouble with my doctor if I fill the pain medicine prescription? If I do fill it, should I go to the same pharmacy I get my monthly meds filled at, or should I use a different one? I don't want to do anything to get in the way of getting my monthly meds, but due to the extreme headache and back ache that I had while being sick, I did take extra pain meds and I could use the few that they prescribed. What should I do?
I appreciate any and all advice.
