to make a long story short... I have been waiting months to see this pain management doc. I have severe back pain and have had to rely on er trips for pain meds. I have been taking oxycodone and vicodin for about 2 months. Well the day before my initial pm appointment i took about 1mg of suboxone because i ran out of pain meds and i was literally so sick that i couldnt get out of bed, let alone make it to this first appointment. My friend told me that what i was experiencing was withdrawal and she gave me this tiny piece of orange suboxone. Well i cant sleep at night because i am worried they will find the suboxone on the urine drug test i took last week. If they do happen to find it, what should i do? Deny it? Tell them what happened? I am sick over this. I finally found a terrific doc thats going to help me and i may not make it to month 2. Scared and worried. Any advice on what i should do/say if they ask whats up with my test? Thanks
I doubt that you have anything to worry about. If you were in Suboxone treatment and they tested you and you showed opiates, then you might have a problem, but you are in pain management, they will not likely test for the Suboxone (buprenorphine). If for some reason they do detect the Suboxone and question you about it, just tell them the truth. Tell them you were in withdrawals from the oxycodone and vicodin from the ER and took some Suboxone. Honesty is the best policy.
Best wishes and try to get some sleep, you need the rest.
ok. I want to be honest with this doctor. She was the first doctor to ever really sit there and listen to me about my pain. She is amazing and i dont ever want to lose her. I'm just terrified of being kick out before i even get started. What i took was dumb knowing that they were going to test me but i thought i was going to die, going through this withdrawal. I never ever want to experience withdrawal again. I dont think i've ever been that sick in my entire life. I just hope i'm lucky enough to continue with this doctor. Thank you for the replies.
