I am prescribed 2 narcotics regularly (oxycodone 15mg and Klonopin 0.5mg). I usually just have to go see my doctor for a quick visit and he will write me my refills. However, I had to uproot and leave and don't feel like wasting the money on driving all the way back. But also don't want to waste the time and money going to a bunch of local doctors whom won't want to write my refills and I waste time and money that way too. I want to find a doctor who has no problem with my doctor back home just calling to confirm I am prescribed that medication and writing me my refills. My doctor will not fax or share medical records with anyone other than me. Any suggestions?
When you make your appt. bring your medical records with you. Also, bring a print out from the pharmacy where you fill your meds. If you sign a medical release form at the new doctors, your old doctor MUST release those files. In the meantime, bring in your own copies. If you have your meds filled at the same pharmacy all the time, better yet. They do not charge for a printout of your meds. It's not so much finding a PCP, it's finding one that won't farm you out to a pain specialist. Be sure and ask before you make an appt. Good luck to you!
