    Unhappy Can a doctor start you on Percocet

    Can a doctor prescribe you pain medicine for 4 months straight and take you off it cold turkey if it is a narcotic?
    percocet 10mg 4x day?
    My pain managment doctor sent me to my regular doctor and okayed my medication and now when my regular doctor called the pain management doctor for me to get another visit - he said if this medicine is working for me - he didn't need to see me again and now my regular doctor is getting mad - he said he won't continue my medication - i need to find another pain specialist.

    My doctor is just getting nervous because my pain guy dropped me - he said that if i needed such a small dose to help me - i didn't need to go to him and my doctor could help me. . . They are driving me nuts- i have been sick for 4 years and have surgery after surgery - i had pain in my head then i had an accident with braces and lost all my teeth on the bottom - suffering in pain constantly... it sucks. Now he told me i need to find another pain guy... and he cant' keep giving me my meds.. but, i just hope he won't just drop me off of it next month like cold turkey... i have been on it steady for months now...
    thanks!

    this doctor better read up on this... he is probably afraid that you may be abusing it even if you aren't....go on percocet addiction sites...those will also tell you that you need to wein not quit CT...make a few copies of articles and bring them to your doctor...

    they are just driving me nuts.
    i have suffered a long time (4years) and now i finally got one doctor to give the okay to give me my meds monthly and now he is falling into a state of panic - because his partner saw the medication i am getting prescribed from his office and they called me telling me i need to go to another pain doctor.
    whatever - i don't want to waste any more of your time. I just wanted to know if it was legal to just drop me cold turkey when i go back to fill my prescription. thanks for your time!

    you are BY NO MEANS wasting my time. people have helped me and i am there for anyone (like you) who needs info on what i know and what i have been thru..remember to go to the headline and write in "percocet addiction"....skip thru the sites that try to sell or tell you what facility to go to....EVERYONE OF THEM tell you (and MY dr) that you need to cut down slowly....i WOULD go back to that dr and give HIM/HER some of the info you checked on...it may even help other people who are dealing with same dr as you...here if you need me
