i like others my medicine dosnt last near as long as it use to for the past 2yrs i always run short. so last wk failed drug test. my dr wrote last script and dismissed me. he has sent 2 referrals out they saw where i failed drug test and said they couldnt see me. Iam in a panic to find a dr IDO NOT abuse my meds. what do i do?
The done my friend the same way but the doctor had it fixed where she couldn't get anything from any doctors in South Carolina but lucky for her we live 15minutes from the GA state line so she used her friends GA address and switched her Medicaid from SC and now she gets her meds again so if you want them again first just try to go over to another county and if that don't work try a different state if its not to far from you
If you are running out early, you are misusing your meds. If the pain meds are not lasting long enough, you should discuss it with your Dr rather than taking more medication or more often than prescribed on your own. If you take it more often or take more than prescribed (escalating your dose on your own), then that does constitute abuse, and in this day and age you HAVE to stick to your prescribed dose. You might try an addictions specialist that deals with pain. Not that I am saying you are addicted!!! Dont get upset as I am judging no one but it does sound like you have lost control of your ability to stick to your prescribed dose so this may be the only Dr who will work with you at this time. All it may take is adjusting your dose to a level that manages your pain then you can show them that your pain was just out of control and not you! Remember, if you find a new doc, that you cannot escalate your dose without an okay from your Dr. Tolerance does happen and I feel your last doc was a little harsh for not recognizing that and at least tried a dose escalation to see if that helped. If you run out early, it makes you appear as someone who cant control their intake any longer and that loss of control can, sometimes be an indicator of addiction BUT if they try a dose escalation and that behavior goes away then it is just a matter of tolerance which is what I expect has happened to you. So my advice would be to find an addiction specialist so that you can get a chance to prove that you are NOT an addict and it was just that you pain was not controlled.
