Please help me. I am lost and don't know what to do. My Dr. had been making house calls and prescribing 30mg Oxycodone tablets 4 times a day and 6 Vicodin 10 mg per day. Suddenly, I get a call from my brother that he saw in the paper that my Dr. has been given 19 federal indicments for neglect of a care dependent person resulting in her death at one one his nursing homes (he was her Dr.) and neglect in over prescribing narcotics to 4 people who subsuquently overdosed and died. Now I have been handed over to one of his PA's who told me he will only give me 2 Vicodin 7.5mg per day and no oxycodone...that's it! I have enough pills to work out a step down program ending Sept 18. I am going to reduce the dose by 1/2 pill of each drug every 4 days. Today is my 5th day and I am pretty miserable some of the time. Yesterday, I took an extra 1/2 oxy...I just couldn't take the distress. I could use some support. BTW, the PA is making me come in every WEEK, for my script even though I am an invaid and have to hire an expensive wheel chair van which I cannot afford. Thanks, Friends.
