This is the first time I have ever posted anything like this on the net but I was just wondering cause I thought that is what the nurse at my dr. Said and no I'm not trying to have a high flying time about 4 months ago I fell out of a bucket truck fully extended and broke... Well let's just say everything but I just had a surgery and it is bad the dr. Raised me up to 4 a day and 3 just isn't cutting it after the surgery thank you for any responses and have a good day
Can you get your pain meds filled early if the dr. Raises you from 3-4 a day? Thank you?

You didn't mention how early on your script. Make sure, though, that you take your new script into your pharmacy as early in the day as possible. They may delay filling the new script because they will first contact your doctor then they will try to get your insurance to pay for it. I would wait to fill this script when you know your doctor is going to be around... For instance, don't try late on a Friday expecting to get it filled or over the weekend when nobody is around.
I'm surprised that your doctor didn't ask for your pill bottle to do a physical count or confiscate them. The reason for doing that is simple... when the pharmacy calls your doctor, your doctor could tell the pharmacy that you relinquished your meds and it is okay to fill the script. Also, your insurance company could be a small hurdle. You didn't mention when you got your current prescription filled.
Not saying it is going to go that way... just be prepared for anything - expect the unexpected. Don't leave the pharmacy without knowing whether or not they will fill it. I hope you don't have a problem.
You need a new prescription with the higher dose in order to get more.
