... is giving me loratab 10 mg and MS Contin. I need a written prescription every month to get my refills (MS Contin), well I can't get in touch with my doctor (will not return my calls) and been without my meds (MS Contin) for 8 days. Having dizzy spells night sweats jerking insides and abundant pains, also was told not to cold turkey these meds. still have refills on the lortab what to do, He told me to not cold turkey but seems like he is cold turkeying me.
So very unfortunate & irresponsible of your doc to leave you without your meds.
Suggest you try to seek another doc who could on the basis of your old prescription & your medical history could prescribe the meds that you have been not taking.
Wish all the best, please take care!
That is very irresponsible to say the least.I have to do the same thing to get my meds eash month I call 2-3 days in advance and the nurse writes it out and the dr signs it.If your drs office isnt to far away I would go and ask why.Or do like the person said before me and find another dr.I wish you the best of luck.
If it were me and my appt was over due, I would drive on over to the office and talk to them face to face. Let them know that you have been calling and no one is responding and now you are out of meds and are desperate. Hopefully while you are there they can either fit you in for an appt, or give you enough meds to carry you through to your next available appt. Good Luck-this situation stinks to say the least! Did you run out early? If you ran out early you may be out of luck. Many Drs wont refill early for any reason. You can try to make do with the Lotab but it will short you later.
Well this is Friday March 2nd, I read all your responses and took note what all ya'll said.
Yesterday I got in touch with my Family Doctor and told him the situation. He said this is a dangerous situation(you can wind up in the emergency room or dead), go to the Pain Management and look them in the eye and ask why?
I did and to my surprise my prescription was written on Feb. 23rd my call was on the Feb. 22nd but no one even called me back to come get it. The new assistant said on the recorder (no one answers the phone anymore). Do not call more than once or it will delay your call back. I called Wednesday ran out on Friday and was afraid to call again or be punished for multiple l calls.
My appointment is on March 19th and we will discuss this punishment B.S. when I go back. Thank you Rajive, Clay and Dzoo Baby for all your support Love you all. This web site gave me the encouragement to hold on. Great idea.
I sure hope all the office staff who were involved were made aware of what happened to you and they were educated accordingly. They need to see first-hand how their actions or fail to take action really does negatively impact some people and they need to know the extent of it.
Most will make sure they never repeat the error again.
If you are not early on your request and you know in your heart you have done everything that he ask of you , then you should call again and leave and inform them first about you being out of your meds and also recall him to the conversation when he told you to never just STOP takings your meds . When you detox it is very dangerous and hard on your body , mind , soul . So going without your meds are NEVER accepted in as GOID DOCTOR SHIP ! So please don't accept this as a regular way doctors do business . Cause it is ! You need to go to office while nurses are there and ask for some one to help you with a matter that needs attention NOW ! They will get your chart and after you tell them you will have a seat and wait for her return to bring you the script . I am more than sure that when they find out about all this and how long you have been waiting , well they will probably give you anything you want .
Just remember you still need this doctor to write your pain meds , so PLEASE DONT MAKE THEM MAD AT YOU FOR CALLING HIM OUT ON H CRAP . They would you at anytime . And we both know they are always asking questions , being noisy ( I think of it like this , if I didn't tell you then don't go behind my back and try to find any answers on me . Cause you have no lies to tell . What are you waiting on ? Go on, call now, I know you want be sorry. You have always made me feel welcome tell them and then as you are bing as kind as you can ( all thing take into accountability . )
I just hate seeing good people being torn apart. Call them in the morning again and put your big panties on and step on out into the real world if you scratch my back and I will scratch yours . Call them and leave a really nice message and be kind to them cause I till u get into a new doctor you will need him to guide his pen across the beautiful whit and blue script paper .
I am on the same medication except I take 30 mg 3 times a day plus 15 mg two times a day and they messed up and gave me 15 mg prescription 2 weeks after they gave me the 30 milligram prescription and I can't break them in half because their Time released I would suggest that maybe you go to the doctor and get a prescription and he can write the date that you're allowed to get it filled on and that way you have it and it's there and you have it in advance and it does suck not having it and dangerous
