i went to pain management dr whom gave me urine test that came back with other drugs not prescribed will the dr now check me out for doctor shopping or my pharmacies and can i go to jail for this? i have 3 doctors but did not know this was illegal or is it?
I'm gonna stick my neck out here , because I believe that there are drugs out there that should be legal. As long as you have a 'scrip. for all those drugs, you can Dr. shop all you want. OK... Flat out , ignorance can be a very good defence for this providing that..[did this pain mangm't Dr. tell you He found those drugs , and did He/She give you a paper copy of what drugs were found] the drugs were not such as cocaine, marijuana, meth. etc. were they? If they were legal drugs [BIG PHARMA, APPROVED] you should be ok. as there's no law against Dr. shopping... and drop the guilt as there's no Angels where Doctors come from.
when you first went to pain management, did they have you sign any paperwork stating that you would not receive any narcotics from any other doctor except your pain management doctor? The reason I ask is I too go to pain management and I had to sign a contract with the physician.
No, you cannot go to jail for that, it is not illegal. the worst that will happen is the PMS will stop seeing you since you violated the contract you signed. my advice, find ONE dr who will treat as you need, in an ethical manner. some PMS will notify your other drs of your urine test results, and those other drs may choose to drop you. it all depends on your dr.
