... torn disc. So I can only take 2 a day
Taura; What you well have to do is call the office and talk to the doctor let the doc know that 2 a day is not woking for you then when he or she says 3 a day is okay then you would have to go to the office and pick up a written prescription the doctor in most states can't phone this in anymore so you need a hand written prescription and see if the dr well write it for a 30 days supply which would be #90 @ 3 x a day. Then fill the prescription. Never just increase the dose by yourself without the doctor knowing or they may just say tough you took to many. etc. Good luck hope your pain is under control. try and have a good weekend. Chuck1957
Chuck has given you the correct instructions. I will supply more info for you. Hydrocodone has now become a Schedule II drug which required a handwritten prescription to be taken by your and delivered to your pharmacist. 2-3 Norco per day is NOT considered a large dosage. 5-8 IS considered a large dosage. Depending on physician, you may need to go to a pain management doctor. Most internists, general physicians, and plain jane family physicians ARE NOT WANTING to continue to write their patients PAIN PILL prescriptions especially if they are SCHEDULE II pain meds - opiates like Vicodin, Narco, Percocet, OxyContin, Hydromorphone, Dilaudid, etc. The State of Texas has new laws in place which all physicians prescribing Schedule II meds must sign a bunch of legal documents. If you are a chronic pain patient, FIND a pain mgmt. doctor now. Typically they will be psychiatrists or anesthesiologists that have specialized in Pain Mgmt. There is a BIG difference in a Pain Mgmt. doctor who prescribes narcotics and a Pain Intervention doctor who only gives trigger point injection with cortisone or Botox. You will need to check around about this. It took me 3 months to find a pain mgmt. doctor here in Dallas, and they all wanted a recent MRI of my problem area, plus all of my various doctors notes, and physical therapy notes, etc. GOOD LUCK!!!
