I'm on 30 mg oxycodone 3x per day, and MS Contin 15 mg 2x per day (among many, many other meds - which are not opiates). It has been a nightmare the last week calling Walgreens and my Dr back and forth due to a lack of communication. Walgreens wanted some info (like a treatment plan) from my Dr, and so finally they spoke with each other. The end goal with my Dr. is to try a bunch of opiates, then move onto the Fentanyl patch (which my insurance denied because they wanted a "Pain Ladder" approach [start with less powerful pain meds and move upwards from there]). So, my Dr called Walgreens and I guess she told her the end goal was to get me off of opiates (don't know why she would say this since it's not the truth) Maybe she just said it so they would fill it and not take it seriously. So, I spoke to Walgreens and they told me they can now fill these opiates, but this would be the last month she would fill my pain pills. What the hell!!! I am in severe, severe amounts of pain even on the medication I am on. All I can manage to do most days is writhe around in bed or sleep, constantly thinking about
jumping off a bridge. I'm only 30 years old.
Anyways, what the hell can I do about
this? Can I just bring my script
to another pharmacy (like Publix next time)? I honestly don't know what I will do if I can't get my pain pills - it's the only way I can even bear to be alive. PLEASE, any help would be welcome.
P.S. These are the meds I'm already on, and they only minimally help - so don't say "just try these!".
