Are you going in for an appt. to pick them up? Or just a drop by the office...or are these the mailed ones to you....
I would absolutely want to talk with the Dr. and sit down and see how the two of you can come up with a better plan...You follow the rules, you take the meds as prescribed...you are happy to take a urine test when asked....but are asking the reason why you have to suffer for over a week until the results come back...See what she has to say..
Your last paragraph says you are new patient to her...just in that office...or first visit all together to this place....If that is so....than that can be a reason they don't give any meds until passing the test the first time.....Because so many people come straight off the street or Dr. shopping and want meds the first visit...
Obviously this is not you!!...I'm just thinking that it may be protocol for a new Dr./Patient for no narcotics.....but that still should be worked out between your old Dr. and new one showing you would be without for a few days and they should at least cover that time...
Ugh...it's all a mess...sorry:(
