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!
I'm pretty sure that your Dr has to transfer your medical records. I've had to do this due to my regular PCP retiring. Just had to sign a form and they sent them to the new Dr no problem. I'm also on opioids and was on clonazepam. My PM Dr proscribed the opioids and PCP the clonazepam. Since she's gone no one wants to prescribe the clonazepam because of the fact that I'm opioids. Its 2018. And they have sent me to a psychiatrist who also will not prescribe clonazepam. And has tried me on many other meds. None have worked. But they still refuse. I never abused never got from other Drs never from other pharmacies or from the ER. Also ran over due date to be filled by at least two wks. Hate to be the one to tell you this but if you have to take opioids its a death sentence on getting an anxiety med. Good luck if you can find one. Most are making Ppl choose between pain and anxiety. Its not write!!!
