    Default going to walk-in clinic for help with withdrawal??

    Hi folks,
    I'm in full blown opiate withdrawal. I don't have a family dr I can talk to.
    Do you think the dr's at a Walk-in-Clinic, or Urgent Care would help me?
    I would like to be prescribed Valium or Librium for my withdrawal syptoms.
    I wasn't a heavy user, but a DAILY one since last Nov. About 50mgs of Hydro a day.
    I'm waiting for Worker's Comp to approve my disc surgery.
    My surgeon never gave my enough to keep me from withdrawing & I can't call him & explain my situation. I'm afraid he won't give me enough pain meds after my upcoming surgery. He's one of those dr's that is REALLY careful.
    Would WC find out the reason I went??
    I don't want them to get ahold of my medical records.
    What should I do?? I'm hurting!

    I would go to ER. I'm on 600mg Avinza a day and 3 times in this year ran out earlier; doc's at ER were so kind to prescribe me enough in order to make it to the next Dr.'s appt. Good luck: Sid

    Benzo's(valium,librium) arent really going to help you right now...Damn I really fell at a crossroads as to what to tell you...If you go to and try to get help with pain meds,then you are screwed when you get sugery,BUT you also need help with a pain med problem...I wish I had some better advice for you...Maybe you can GET TO A Methadone clinc,they may not disclose med reecords,and the meth will help W/D's and your pain...Good luck!

    Thanks for the replies, folks.
    I am sooo afraid of WC finding this out that I'm tempted to go to a walk-in clinic and try & get opiates.
    I've been coughing alot & maybe could get some prescription cough syrup.
    I think I have the beginnings of a chest cold.
    But...it's a ******************** shoot with those "doc-in-a-box"
    It would at least get me through until my surgeon would refill my Hydro script.
    He has me on 1 5mg Hydro every 6 to 8 hours. Sucks, right?
    He gave me 40 about a week or so ago. (I doubled up on them)
    It'll probally be a week before I can risk calling him. Oh..the nearest Methadone clinic is 40 miles away.

    If I was in flow blown sickness...40 miles would be a Loooong drive,but well worth it...BTW you can go and blame the "flu" or a "cold" all that you want,but once they see you and take your vitals they will know you that you're dope sick...
