I have a prescription for chronic back pain, for oxycode 2 - 30mg per day. It doesn't alter my mind, i just use it as directed. I have all my teaching certificates and was wondering can they not hire me if I am under a dr's legitamate prescription for chronic back pain. I know it is a narcotic, but i went 7 days without it, and then broke down and had to take it the past 2 days. My dr. said it shouldn't effect my chances of a job since he is prescribing it for me for the pain, that would be discrimination. Has anyone been in the same predicament? And since the job is a teaching position, I'm sure they take something like this very serious. I am not abusing the prescription, just using as directed...
