angela27. welcome to the site, first, i wanna say that what im about to say is the truth of how we on narcotic medication is on. the whole situation woould be on how often do you get the refills for your medications, what it is, and how much you take a day. also has there been problems with your medication running out early due to you taking more then priscribed? im just trying to throw out some suggestions to you, only becaue there aree a hu number patients who are on pain managemetn, even having to refill early at times. it also all depends on your relationship with your dr, the lenghth of time on it, and also has this happened before? i only am asking ths because many patients, who abuse these pain mediation and will give any story for an early refill. again im not saying this is what your doing, just saying what it can be looked at. hang in there

First of all, you should file a police report. Once you file a police report then let your Dr know what happened. He may or may not authorize an early fill. As the poster above says, it depends on your Dr, and what your habits have been. Filing a police report helps to back your claim that, yes indeed, your meds were stolen. I know my Drs will NOT even think about replacing meds without a police report.

You may also want to consider getting a lock box for your future meds so that this doesnt happen again.

Yippers same here keep them from your home you will find you have a whole new group of friends while taking opiates, weird how this happens, and keeping them in a lock box is not smart then they are in one place that all walks you'd be surprised how fast ones hooked can jack your stuff no matter what size. Bolt that sucker to the floor and make sure you get the one that bolts from the inside hide the key, I just learned from a tv program that the fail proof safe Brinks, you can drop it on the corner it pops right open. mine is bolted to the floor. They find everything. Or maybe is just my bouts with my people that come to visit. I can't tell you how many go thru bath room stuff. Its proven to be a common practice. I just have no company anymore. Why is it we the ones in pain have to be so careful, man is more work then it is easing the pain. good luck on this. as for doctor,, they rarely belive much and a report may help. From here on tell everyone you know that your not on an opiate. Then you will be safe. good luck...
