Litespeed...I'm so sorry you were treated so harshly! They were so rude to you. Did you have trouble finding a good pm doc?
I just may have to find a new pm.....My husband had talked to the pharmacist at our mom and pop pharmacy about this....the pharmacist strongly urged me to not go to a new pm doc since everyone is being so closely monitored by the authorities....doing so would send up a huge red flag and call all kinds of unwanted attention to myself....
I'm an excellent cp patient, I never lose my meds, etc,...none of those kinds of issues......but the thought of being even more closely watched does make me nervous.
However, in light of how I was so rudely treated, I'll revisit this option.
On the Rocks, thanks so much for that link! I'll start calling tomorrow.
Flower, yes, I will be driving around beginning tomorrow.....We've got some extras saved up, so I'll be ok for a little while.....It's just so upsetting not knowing if/when I'll get them!
I may need to switch meds (can't take anything with morphine). Ideally for excellent pain relief, I would love returning to Roxicodone......I had gotten the most relief with those.
However, several years ago my pm abruptly switched me, without warning, to the Percocet because the police were visiting all the pain clinics here in Pasco County, FL and telling the docs to stop prescribing the Roxicodone. So I went from 75 mg Roxicodone to 50 mg Percocet.
I went thru horrible withdrawals, even though I had the Percocet's......The timing was awful...it was August and school was starting (I'm a retired high school teacher).....
If anyone has any suggestions of what medication might be similar to Percocet, I would appreciate that info. Perhaps I need to go back on a long acting med.....I hate the trial and error period since they start you at such a low strength....I understand why...I just don't want to be in more pain.
ok, I also hope everyone has a wonderful, pain free Christmas day!! I really appreciate everyone who took the time to write and help me out.
