I have found out with my doctor honesty is the best policy. And when I was abusing my meds I came up with stories you wouldn't believe. He would never let me go without because of detox. What he would do is give me a few and I would have to go back sometimes twice or more a week until I could earn his trust. Then he would gradually increase my dosage until I got back on track. I am in insinuating that is what you did and if I found my cousin that stole my meds he would be in big trouble not to mention keep out of my house. Anyway, I hope this gives you some help with your situation. And, if you have never had this happen before she (your doc) should be understanding if she is any kind of a human being. We all have things that happen.. And you are right about others ruining it for others... Wishing you well. kimmie1
I found myself in a similar situation one time and not saying it was right,but a friend of mine who had the same neck injury and was on Morphine like myself,I had him give me some urine & I repeat I know it was wrong but I'm in serious pain because of two c-1 c-2 fussion and I could not risk losing my meds. The truth probably would have worked also,I went the wrong way,but it worked. I guess it's how good you know your doc & know what the end result will be before you make a dissision. What you think is right most likely is,tough situation to in either way.
I think the truth will be the best route to take. if they do a urine test they will see you haven't taken it. And why would abuse the medication when you know you only have enough to last you for a month. Having worked in the field I have heard every excuse. You are right it is sad that someone who doesn't abuse drugs has to feel like a criminal when something out totally out of your control caused you to be short this month. Why do we have to be afraid I think it is because we are honest and know the consequences. As for your cousin. She needs a good talking to. She may want to use for recreational reasons but she should not take advantage of you and put you in this position as well as leave you without medication which may cause you to go through some withdraw syptoms depending on how long you have to wait to get a new script. I hope this has been somewhat helpful.
but if you haven't taken any meds or anything else then you should be fine as they will not show up in a drug screen. If you did take something let them know it will only make you look bad if they find something else that you are not supposed to be on. Good Luck, You know I put my blood pressure pills in my morphine bottle and my girlfriend went into my meds and took what she thought was morphine guess who ended up in the E.R. with really low blood pressure? It taught her a lesson i hope.
