I had percecet I was tested positive for thc doctor would not renew my percecet due to my contract from pain clinic now what do I do for my pain any thing I can do pot has positive effect for me. any answers.
THC is the active ingredient in marijuana. Even though it is legally used medically in some states, federal law still states it is illegal so many physicians are not comfortable with their patients using it especially together with opioid analgesics. If your pain contract states that marijuana use is prohibited and you signed that agreement then finding THC in your urine is grounds for dismissal/discharge from the practice due to violation of your contract. You need to be familiar with what is stated in your pain management agreement and know that any violations can get you discharged from your pain clinic and your physician is under no obligations to refill your pain meds, although some may give you one final script and then send you on your way, and others will drop you like a hot rock.
In today's climate surrounding use of opioids, doctors cant afford to prescribe to people who may have addictions and in many eyes, marijuana use can be associated with an addictive personality even though it may or may not be true. Not all pain docs feel this way. Some are okay with marijuana use and feel it can help reduce the need for opioids. It just depends on your Drs beliefs about marijuana and its pain relieving properties. If you live in a state where medical marijuana is legal, you can find a doctor to prescribe it, get a users card and buy according to your states laws. If you live in a state where it is not legal, you will have more problems but you can always ask your pain management physician what his stand on medical marijuana is and if he is okay with its use along with your opioids. You will now need to find another pain management doctor because you did violate your contract, your current doctor is not going to accept you back. Or if you prefer, you can rely on marijuana to relieve your pain but know that if it is not legal in your state, you are open to any repercussions legally for having, buying and using it.
