You will get caught and face felony charges. Speak with your doctor about the issue you are trying to solve. Typically, even considering doing something like this might be an early warning sign for you. These types of meds carry a risk of addiction and even the thoughts about doing something like this should be a BIG red flag for you.
yes you can if caught... if you alter a script in any way it is invalid, and if you kite fake scripts and get caught, you can do some serious JAIL time... I suggest you speak with your doctor, and talk about an increase in the strenght or dosage, Be smart kid... this kind of stuff screws up the program for everyone... and the d e a is now tracking EVERY controlled substance issued, to you, by every Dr. you may be getting them from... and the print out will show how many, what strength and what Dr you got them from... think ahead, so you don't get kicked backwards... this is not a play ground, and there are very serious ramifications for any outward actions if you do this... they could black ball you, and you may never get a Dr to ever prescribe another controlled substance for you in the future... in the state of Florida there is a 25 year minimum MANDATORY years in jail if you get caught selling, giving, or are in illegal possession of Hydrocodone (first offense) ...
and that is per PILL, from intel ops ppl I know there... so if you have 4 pills and no script from a legally constituted Dr, your gonna get 100 years of jail time... look it up... they have also started doing urine and blood toxicology to see if you have this medication in your system, to see if you are taking them, or not... if the medication is not quantitated per ml of blood, then you can be cut off... just a word to the wise.
You will go to prison and you will lose you prescription from you doctor and would most probably be asked to find a new doctor. Health care professionals DO NOT TOLERATE that kind of behavior at all and neither does law enforcement.
Yes you will get into trouble and possible lose your prescription for pain meds as well. It's kinda like adding a few extra zeroes on a check someone has written to you... it's ILLEGAL!
IT IS CALLED A FERERAL OFFENSE. PLEASE THINK AGAIN. IF YOU NEED THE HIGHER DOSE TALK TO YOUR DOCTOR
Not a good idea. You can spend years in prison and might be fined hundreds of thousands of dollars. If you need a higher dose just ask your doctor. That way it's not illegal and you get what you want. Hope this helps. Good Luck.
