I'm so so sorry to say this, but leave. I'm not saying the "d" word, but go to a relative or friend. Then, gather everyone who cares for him and set up an intervention. He sounds dangerous and is the reason why you need to leave. He's taken the medications that you need, and doesn't respect your needs. He's not willing to listen, so, you're left with only one choice, and that's to leave him. Right now, he's very very sick, and has the disease called addiction. Addicts will lie, steal, etc. You can't believe words, but only actions.
Once you've left him, then, call his doctor, explain the situation, and find a rehab center for him to go to. After you sum up all of his friends and family for the intervention, if he still refuses to go to rehab, then, I'd think about the "d" word.
I'm so sorry about your situation, and I wish the best for you. But, in order for you to do any good for him, you need to leave, cause if he wants his life back (you, family, friends), he'll have to go into rehab. You leaving gives him an incentive to get better, and while it sounds harsh at first, it very well could in the long run save his life.
I have to agree with jk13 you need to get your husband some help asap. He is lieing and stealing so yes you are correct he is definantly addicted. Intervention is your best bet and you might want to hurry before it gets worse and he goes as far as shooting it up cause he isnt getting the same high like he usually gets. Alot of people take it to this extreme cause they wont admit they are addicted. You definantly need to let his doctor know he has been lieing so there wont be any route he can take but to get help or tell him you will leave him. Im sorry you are going through this and i only wish you the best good luck michelle.
I noticed someone marked these people as giving bad advice, but had none to offer of there own? I was just wondering just why in the world someone would mark that they are wrong? Whats this lady do?Wait till he overdoses from her medicene and ends up in prison for the rest of her life there bout? Why should she suffer and possibly be held responsible for his overdose since shes admited to God and everyone else she knows hes taken it? Outside of the advice youve gotten from the other two here which is very sound advice.They merely said you needed to try to help him,there is no easy way out for him if hes out of "control on pain killers"he will spend your retirement and youll never know it.If you have assets you want long.If you love this man you gonna have to put on some pants for awhile.Becareful what you say on the net.
Painkiller addiction is so difficult and will rob a human of their soul. I speak from several years of experience. Everyone is correct, you must get him help or it will certainley ruin your lives and it is no way to live. I think i am correct in saying this, people that are addicted know it, know it is ruining their lives, hate it, hate what it does to them, i just don't think we know how to stop at that moment... Intervention, whatever it takes... look at all the people on the site that have quit using... it is possible. I was addicted to oxycotin, it cost me a career, almost my husband, and a large group of friends that had no idea what had happened to the girl they loved... and it only gets worse... I wish you well and will put you in my prayers...
call his doc tell him you may think he may have a problem with pain pills have the doc to run a m.r.i on your husband if you have insurance mri will show nothing wrong no meds will be given to him i used to be in his shoes but worse oxycotin and others.it will be hard to help him if he doesnt want to be help you will push him to take more pills just to get back at you.
then when those are not giving him his high he will look fo stronger pills to do that if this happens you will have a huge battle on your hands..start praying give your husband this choice me are the pills honey be serious about it do you have some where you can go and stay for a while if i knew what kind of med he is on i could help a little more..keep and eye on the money that you have anywhere if he starts spending alot of money he has found someone to buy them off the streets sorry to tell you that im trying to help you i was in his shoes and my wife wear in your shoes GOOD LUCK ILL BE PRAYING FOR YOU WV-KID ps his temper will let you know when he is running low on med or out of med you need to hide yours better than you do... hang in there it wont be easy..
