Hey, would you mind clarifying "failed drug test," Do you mean you came up positive for something you weren't prescribed or did you show negative for percocet, and also, have you been on percocet for 8 years or 20. The reason I ask is that your body will get used to any opiate in a much shorter period of time, and if that is maybe possibly what happened, there are longer acting meds. Hope you are not angry I asked, but I promise you people will mention this when they respond here. Anyway, it may very well be on your records, but, you will have to sign to get those records and you can check than info if you read the report. It seems odd that she gave you your meds this month but released you, usually if you fail a test at a doctor's office, they don't give you your meds. I am glad she gave them to you, so, you wouldn't be in pain or withdrawal.
Don't be embarassd, don't get depressed. Same thing happened to me last month. Read my profile. Welcome aboard. I was getting narcotics from other drs. This may have been the best thing that happened to you. 8 years on percs that's too much actetaminophen for your liver. Personally I hade to resort to a methadone clinic. Methadone is the best medication for chronic pain. After one week I am up to 45mg and starting to feel just ok. I know it will get much better. If you can get another pain management dr. Listen to the other girl there are much better choices for long term chronic pain relief. We are here for you. God Bless and Good Luck. Sable
If you mean that you didn't have your own medication in your system because it was lost and you were honest about it upfront, I don't believe you should even try Methadone to replace Percocet at all or put yourself in a position of going to a methadone clinic as that is a big red flag for any doctor to ever treat your pain properly again.
If this is the only time you have ever had lost medication and it didn't show up in your system the way it should have, you should seek another doctor who is compassionate about your situation and understand that you would forever have to be very careful with your meds as maybe this doctor thought you took all of them too early or sold them.
Have you ever ran out early in the past? If so, that would be the only reason I would think that she would release you as a patient and if it was the first time, she had the obligation to write it up in your report but should have given you another chance.
You need to seek out a new doctor as you are released and explain to the new doctor your situation. As long as you know that you didn't take them early or sold them, this shouldn't happen again.
It is sad but in today's world we must store any medications in a safe place and have only one person or none that knows we even get them or where we keep them.
I have been through withdrawals before after purposely going off of my own pain medications for over 3 months refusing to take them back never wanting to feel withdrawal again as it was worse than any other experience and my pain was out of control.
Methadone is so much stronger than Percocet and the dangers of it are much worse also.
