My doc took me off Dilaudid after three years if taking it. She said if you got hurt there wouldn't be anything they could give me. I've been taking oxycodone for 10 years but I need a breakthrough med. How can you tell her without her thinking I'm a drug seeker. I have horrible back pain and was doing good with it.
jm6969; This is a very hard one They are on the doctors to write fewer narcotics of any kind How long have you been seeing her. Can make a difference you could try and go in for your appointment a bit early. And ask the doctor about increasing the Oxycodone or something you can take for breakthrough pain. Also, you always get your medication from the same doctor and the same Pharmacy I do know most doctors don't even like to write Dilaudid due to the fact that this one is on the medical radar more than many because of the abuse of it years ago. Then you do have a choice if she won't or can't help you ask her for a referral to a pain management doctor and let her know you can't live like this but you need someone that will write you what you need and you will keep her for other things. Now you have to be very careful a pain clinic well drop you like a rock if you screw up your contract with them. Say like you have to go to the E.R. AT THE HOSPITAL and the doctor there says JM; here is 12 Vicodin to get you through you just broke your contract or lose pill these clinics are very strict. But first, try your regular doctor maybe she will write 30 Dilaudid to take one a day for severe pain. good luck to you
