A. Person I know received pills from her primary and her pain mangement? Just wondering! Does anybody know?
If both the primary care physician AND the P.M.C know then it would be O.K. Otherwise it's known as doctor shopping & you'll end up getting nothing & be blacklisted from other clinics & doctors. So no it's not a good idea & if your friend is doing that without both knowing they won't be for long & that's a fact,it will catch up with them most likely the pharmacy will see it & let both entities know,not a good idea. Good luck.
It is a rare occasion for a pain Dr to let another Dr write scripts for pain meds along with what he/she writes. I'm guessing this person is obtaining meds from each and the Drs have no knowledge that the other is providing meds. This IS Dr shopping and can get you into a world of hurt. If you live in a state that has prescription drug monitoring program, they WILL find out. With the prescription drug monitoring program, each and every script for a controlled substance goes into a data bank and Drs can pull up this history. My state has it and my pain Dr has it every month.
This shows him when and where I have gotten my scripts at every month and if I get something from another Dr or dentist you can bet he is on me about it! You can be "red flagged" and once you are flagged the pharmacies wont fill your prescriptions and your Dr can terminate you from their practice and you will have a hard time getting another Dr to take you on, especially if she has a pain contract. This person is playing with fire and she needs to decide which one she wants to fill her meds and stick with the one Dr!
Most pain drs have a contract they ask you to sign when you first see them. One of the things on it is that you won't get pain meds from another doctor. If the pain doctor found out, he could refuse to see you as a patient. Plus I knew someone who did that. Note the past tense? He OD and died mixing the 2.
