If I messed up on my intake of Percocet and my pain clinic let me go, can I go to another one?

Hi, Ronda1760, You did not say in any detail about who prescribed your Percocet. We also do not know if your pain clinic told you not to ever come back or anything other than “my pain clinic let me go.”
Being another chronic pain patient myself, I will tell you what I know from my pain doctor here and my pharmacy here in Dallas, Texas. A prescription of my Dilaudid/hydromorphone is for a 30 day supply. I cannot take more per day and expect my doctor to fix it. I am drug tested every visit so my doctor,knows exactly what I take, what I do not take, and how much is in my system. The numbers of time per day and the strength of my meds are what my pain doctor gives to the pharmacy. I will assume you had a thirty day supply and you either took more than you were given by your doctor or some or all of them went somewhere other than in your body.

Yes, if you can find one.

Hi Rhonda,
Tonyplake described how most pain centers "police" their patients. It's a shame it's gotten to this point when you have to sign contracts, have drug levels checked, etc but its the way it is.
It would be helpful to find out as to how you took more than prescribed and how they dismissed you.
You should be able to be accepted for another pain center eval. You have to be very smart for that first appointment. Don't forget that with electronic charting the info will follow you. The patient's chart is not really the patient chart anymore. It is the doctor being able to write what they feel like with no input (in writing) from the patient.
