So I went to see this blood Doctor my my sever head aches. But when I went to pick up my script for pain medicine they said it was my last script cause I didn't go see them but I actually did. So I spoke with the nurse and they said yea everything's fine as long as you saw them I'll just tell the doctor. So when I went to go get my last script they won't give me it cause my doctor had been put sick for a week and a half and no one was able to tell her I had seen the other doctor. I had been calling for that whole week to make sure everything was ok but they said she haven't been in call again. So when I went to get it they said nope we can't give it to you so I had to have my mother talk to them cause she knows the nurse their well. Do they agree to give me the script but it was for HALF of what I normally take. So 2 weeks in and I'm not gonna make it to the 20 day mark for my next script. Not sure what to do and I'm extremely mad that I'm being punish for my doctor being sick. And I'm about to lose my job due to missing two days and it ruined my Christmas. Any advice would help. Thank you
Surely your regular doctor will be back by then and can sort it out within 2 weeks?
Do you have a PCP/Family Doctor? May be able to help you out with this pickle especially since it sounds like a one-time thing.
If you have a pain med contract with the other doctor, please be careful of course, but I would hope something could be done--even if your PCP could just advocate for you?
NKing953; Yes the regular doctor or a doctor covering for her they can do what ever they want as far as cut down your prescription or stop it.So it's good you got some and hope it holds you over until your doctor is back in and you can get your full prescription filled. Also the medical board is sticking there nose into prescriptions for pain medications and have doctor scared they can't prescribe more than a amout of mg that any patient can get.It's a joke and not the doctors fault. So could be this other doctor was worried because your not his patient and could get into trouble by the medical board. AND WE ARE THE ONES THAT HAVE TO SUFFER. but im sure your doctor well fix it when she gets back.But be nice and explain what has happened etc it really is not that doctors fault. But any doctor for any reason can stop prescribing you a medication anytime they want and nothing we can do about it.
It really doesn't matter what you do. It took me several years of bad medicine reactions to finally get pain medications that work perfectly for me. I was able to lose the knee brace, back brace, and TENS unit. I had to deal with my doctor grabbing my butt and kissing my neck every time I had to get refills so I was very glad when my doctor moved and I was assigned a different doctor. I met this new doctor twice and really liked him. Then last week I went in for my monthly follow-up and was told that my new doctor moved two months back and the doctor's office had given me another new doctor. This new doctor, who has not even been in the room with me as her patient, cut my medications completely in half for no reason other than she wanted to.
I don't have health insurance but if I don't get two MRI's done ($1300) before my December visit she will completely stop all my meds. Nobody cares that a doctor is supposed to first "do no harm" and if you complain you will be cut off and your medical file will denote that you are a "difficult patient".
