... disc. I am in a lot of pain and can hardly move, I was taking vicodin but had to take more than twice a day due to the pain and I am out now. Can I ask for percocet so I can take it less often than vicodin? I also get constipated with vicodin and I don't with percocet. How do I go about asking the doctor this and not get judged for taking my vicodin more than twice a day because I hurt myself again at school?

thank you everyone for your support, it really helps. I would of been so scared going in and asking for the medication. I have been on them for 2 months and they judge sometimes. I will post what happens. I see my actual doctor on the 20th which is good. Someone told me to ask the doc about a pain doctor or clinic or surgery.
The truth works when other things fail (what my grandma always said) I approached my pain mgmt/internist with that and haven't strayed from the truth, have bent over backwards to take empty/full bottles in, she asks a question and I try to document everything until she see's it's the way it is, plus your history will also tell the doctor the way things are, I know we live in an age to where it is scary but I also keep the faith that once she asks a direct question or if I ask for more medicine if I haven't given her anything to doubt for then why should she doubt me, I understand doctors are individuals and some you are like pulling teeth but thats the best advice I can give, I hope that we come to a point to where there are enough of us who continue telling it like it is until it gets easier than more difficult. I wish you the very best, I have you in my thoughts and prayers
I got percocet until my appointment this friday but my mom or her husband stole the medication and I am in a lot of pain with having to go through my finals for school. I am so upset and in a lot of pain. I have been sleeping most of the day and night unless I have class. I am so upset. I have an appointment with my primary care doctor this friday.
