Hello Everyone, I am new to this site, so please be patient, and please all advice is valuable.
about a week after I had filled my script for my meds, I am taking 70.5 mg of Methadone per day for chronic pain, various problems, about half of my script was missing. Thinking there was not a whole lot I could do about it I tried to make them last as best I could. Of course I ran out, thinking I could just tough it out, I tried. Oh holy hell, I had no idea how bad it was going to get. Well I lasted a few days and decided to call my Pain Clinic to let them know what had happened, and to see if I could be seen. Well NO, I would have to wait to my next scheduled appointment, but I needed to I could go to the ER to seek help. I tried to just do it for a couple of more days until I could not stand the withdraws anymore and went to the ER. Ugh after waiting forever I got into a room and was told that there was really nothing they could do for me, gave me scripts to help with the symptoms, and told to contact my Clinic they should help me. I tried to hang with them meds, but they were not helping, and I was just getting worse. I called my Pain Clinic after a day or so, and was told NO I could not get in that day, but they would send a message back and someone would call me. I waited for an hour and asked if I had been forgotten, was told no, they were busy and when they had time they would call me. This never happened! Of course the ninny that I am, I could not stand the withdraws, I tried Urgent Care, they referred me to the ER, I tried the local Drug Addiction agency, was told to go to he ER, so off I went to another ER only to be told that they could not do much for me, gave me a script for the nausea and home I went. I have 2 days to go to my scheduled appointment, I am still fighting withdraws, hell not quite so much anymore, but I am very bitter. I am not too sure how I am going to act when I get to my appointment, I won't blow it, I will be nice, but I want to know why I was allowed to go through this damit!!?? I know I signed a contract and it was my responsibility to safeguard my Medication, but I am not perfect, and I let my guard down. I have never had any problems with this Clinic and I have been going there for over 3 years.
I guess what I am asking is opinions of how I should handle the situation when I go to my appointment.
Sorry this became a mini novel, but Thank you for reading and a big Thanks if you respond.
