Sorry....weekends....especially a holiday weekend like this being both Easter and Passover....can be a busy time for everyone..So it's nothing personal Fireflyhillary...
Yea, there are a few medicines like Opana and Nucynta and some others that have been on back order and harder to find.
Have you tried Walmart, Sams Club, Target and BJs? If you use the Pharmacy at a big box store like Sams where I go, you do NOT have to be a club member to use the Pharmacy.
But sometimes the larger stores have a better supply for medication...
Did you call the Dr. to let them know that you can't find it anywhere? I would make sure you do this so he knows you are still taking the Percocet and in case you run out quicker than usual because of this..
Hopefully you can get this sorted out quickly..
Many people have had great success with Nucynta....I usually never pay much attention to how medicines have affected others as we are all unique and what works or doesn't for me, will be completely different for you or others.
So....hopefully the epidurals will provide some relief for you. Unfortunately arthritis is one of those things that doesn't get much better once diagnosed. Many of us with spine issues have this which is a bummer...
Hope you are able to enjoy some of the holiday weekend!
