Thank you so much for your consideration, i really appreciate it. I take 30 mgs twice daily so 60 mgs total (starting July 11th). 1st 1st doctor(not my specific doctor)at that office will see me as early as saturday, however he refuses to fill a script
for oxycontin. He perscribed me Norco 10 325 the first time i saw him, and since thoses didnt work hardly at all, i asked for the oxy. Hence the reason for the referall to this new "pain doctor", they are all in the same building. I would go for a quick appointment (even though its an hour drive and hell on my back), and get the norco. I should get a refill of oxy soon afterward, so the norco would hold me over. However, the norco is hell on my stomach, i have a peptic ulcer. To get any releive from the norco i was taking between 6-8 on my active days, and much less on my inactive days. When i was on norco my stomach constantly was in stabbing pain, and i couldnt eat, because i got so sick. I also dry heaved blood on several occastions. So to me, to benefits from the norco do not exceed the costs to my body. Just to go back to that same office in a week or so, i just cannot justify it to myself.....
I'm so pissed off right now because i thought i finally found a decent office. I was treat like such garbage for the first six months from the local physicians. They made me feel like a drug addict when i would go in for pain, even though i followed all theri directions and refferals. I was so under medicated and i did not heal up at all for the first 6 months becuase of the pain. Now i feel like im getting screwed on this one. I know it's not easy to give heavy perscript
ions to a 22 year old, that is a fairly new patient. But i have med records and MRI's to prove my case. Plus my pharamcy record is squeky clean. I dont have the time to put up with this, i'm on a schedule, and i have less 6mo to allievate this problem.
I made a pain journal to and he was impressed (thank you for the advice). I told him all my problems, and all my goals for the future. In his defense he did cut me some slack w. the oxy considering i was a new patient. However, when i make an agreement to have a follow up (i was supposed to be contact, instead i had to call them), i expect our arrangement to be met..... that is why your a doctor and make a disgusting amount of money every year..... grrrr........................ I specifically went over this situation with him to make sure that he would be aviable for a follow-up before my meds were up. I told him specifically not to perscribe them to me unless he knew that i would be able to get a follow up before they ran out..... AHHHHHHHHHHHHH....... i could have been healed be now if i could have just found a good doctor in the beginning.
Im thinking that i could make 20 last around 6 days..... then not take any and see how bad the w/d is. if it is still really bad i will have 10 left over to stop w/d until i can at least go see A doctor.
I kind of wanted to taper myself off for a couple of days to see how my injury is progressing w/o medication... but not like this....
I just lost a 5 thousand dollar grant for school that im trying to get back.I graduate in 6 mo. I'm looking for town houses. I'm trying to find a job. I'm going to school full time. I still have a final from spring semester that i couldnt take because of the amount of writing involved, and i still wont be able to complete.... Both of my insurances are dening claims because of errors in paperwork.... FROM 6 MONTHS AGO.... talk about a backlog i have to sort through..... i really am too tired to handle all this....
someone wanna wake me up when im retired......? a coma sounds pretty good right about now...... I'm kidding, but im just soo stressed
Also... i know you are not supposed to cut oxycontin in half because it screws up the time release. However, i think my body can handle 5 mg of oxycondone. Basically what im thinking is if i cut them in half creating 60. I planning to stop w/d not necissarly control my pain, i just dont have enough meds to do that. Basically if the halfs control the w/d it also makes the w/d period shorter to becuase it my body will digest them faster..... just a thought..
