they said I need to sign a narcotic agreement does anyone know what that is?
It is probably the contract they sign and basically it ask you to agree to random pill counts and urinanalysis, tells you what you can and can not do as a patient ( or they will kick you out of their practice) and keeps you from doctor shopping and getting extra pills. They will also explain the dangers of the medication they are putting you on and letting you know how addictive it is. It protects them from you getting meds and selling them, or doing something that makes you worse. They will be expecting you to test positive for the medication they prescribe, but, if you ever have a false negative, ask to retest with a kit from a different batch of Urine tests.
Pattis right. It's a basic agreement where you promise not to get meds from another doctor, random drug screens to make sure the level isn't too high or too low, pill counts, etc. Someone suggested (in case of an emergency) have a card with you stating that you have this agreement. Have the doctors name and info on the card. Glad to hear you're getting your pain under control! Wish you well. FYI... I had signed one 7 years ago, forgot all about it. Went back a year ago and it was still in effect! Oops!
