... results of the test I don't won't to ask and I don't have any thing in me that should not be there so I just fig. al is good if something was wrong they would let me know. My second question is ant it a law that they have to give you a copy of the test I am in Louisiana and I know laws are differ. Depending on were you are at. Thanks for your answer!! ( Donecrazy)
I think you answered your own question. If the doc doesn't say anything about the test then the results are fine. I'm on Sub and the doc I see now does drug tests. So far he hasn't said anything, and I know there is nothing for him to find that shouldn't be there. I think 1 reason they say nothing when all is well is because just doing the drug test fosters a feeling of mistrust between us and them. At some point I may ask him. I guess you're on Mdone for pain? I'm also on Sub for pain. I tried Mdone and had a bad reaction to it. That was unfortunate because I think Mdone is a stronger pain killer than Sub. But I can't take it. I tried it in the 90's and now again this year, and both times I reacted badly to it. So I'm fairly content on Sub, but since I am taking it for pain, I am annoyed that he does these drug tests. In addition I have used this doc as a PCP for most of the past 11 years.
But I'm letting him do his tests, and in 6 months I'll bring it up if he doesn't. But quite honestly, I had been on Sub for 5 years with another doc, and while I'm on Sub I never even feel a desire to take anything else. Where I live I get offered Percocet and Vicodin about once a week. I don't want them. The only thing I need is something for anxiety and insomnia. Lately I've been trying Trazodone, and I think it's working well.
Sorry I went off on a tangent. I don't think a doc has to give you a copy of anything unless you ask for it. Then they do have to give it to you. But if you ask for copies of the test, you'll make him wonder why. I wouldn't do anything that will make him doubt you. And in Louisiana, it may be a law that anyone taking Mdone, for any reason, be drug tested. I'm sure you can find this info on the Net if you look enough.
Good luck with the pain.
I guess it does vary state to state, my doctor who is an internist with a degree in pain management gives me a Xerox copy of both blood and Urine evaluations each time, A patient posted on here and the person said they had been on their medication but the evaluations had been low for a good period of time, it was my thought then why would adoctor allow low readings to go for an extended period of time without saying here are the results you can see the evaluations are abnormally low, I imagine due to the many tests that are run most doctors don't do that on a regular basis but I will say that to me it shows that the doctor is interested in seeing that the patient see things for what they really are.

Not only that but when I first started seeing this doctor she made sure I had a copy of the pain management agreement I think patients should have a copy of this. it protects both doctor and patient.
