... visit that it wasn't found in my system... can someone help
Move on. This Dr will now mess with you no matter what you do. Been their. I had my prescription in my system. He just kept switching it monthly then questioned why I had valuim in my system knowing my pcp prescribed it but said it wasn't verified. His job to do.
He gave me problem after problem. I found a knew Dr and I'm happy. He even wrote I abused by prescription because I refused to take it all at once . I told him I don't want to be high I want to be normal as possible and function he didn't care. When he wanted me to take 2 pain killers at once I took them 2 hrsapart. Drs like that are not worth going to. Find a new one.
I can add this.. once you go to PM you cannot take any other prescribed or non prescribed meds without going through them first. You agree to discard any unused meds from previous written RX's as well. This is supposed to help control the drugs so to speak. If you took something even prescribed that he/she the PM did not write or agree for you to continue taking you failed your contract.
I would move on before it gets any worse.
Due to the problem of the FDA & DEA new regulations about pain control & the doctors that prescribe pan meds all doctors that write for certain prescriptions must adhere to the new rgulations of testing their patients to see if they are actually taking their meds as prescribed or are selling them on the street. What they don' regulate are the tests they are having to give the patients. Unfortunately, most use the cheapest tests available, & some are not reliable. If you are taking your pain meds as prescibed & know for sure you had it in your system at the time of your test, I would insist on a blood test or hair sample test. You may have to pay for this yourself, but in order to keep you pain doctor it may be necessary. If I understand you correctly, you hadn't taken a pill for 3 days? Is this how it is prescribed? It doesn't sound to me like you had taken your meds as prescribed or you should have taken it the day of your appointment.
If it is something you take as needed, & not on a schedule, then it wouldn't surprise me that it didn't show on your test. Some of these tests are not reliable as the doctors that order them are doing the cheapest ones they can find.Please relay to them that you are willing to take a blood or hair test to prove you are taking your meds as prescribed if you actually are. Those tests do not come back with false results. If you had not taken your script for 3 days, I could see how a cheaper test would come back negative. If you don't need the medication except on a as needed basis, then tell your doctor this. I wish you the best... Mary
