    Termination letter from Pain Management

    I have been with Pain Management for one year and I just received a letter stating I would not receive any narcotics. I have had all my major joints replaced and have tried injection which didn't help me. I have had great success with Butrans Patch and oxymorphone for breakthrough pain. The clinic just increased my oxy for 3 a day instead of 2 just last month. Apparently my urine test last month showed I wasn't taken the medication as prescribed. I was originally give 3 oxy a day and due to a family emergency I was off pain meds for 3 months since I was in another state. When I returned I was given 2 a day since I had been off them for awhile. The PA said she would give me the three back, but it took 3 months. I am going on vacation in 2 weeks and my appointment is for the day before. Does anyone know if they could give me a one month supply so I don't go into withdrawal and until I can find another doctor?

    It is doubtful that your dr will give you another prescription. You do need to be prepared to not have any pain meds. It will be diffcult, if not impossible, for you to find another dr to manage your pain. Drs don't like to take on patients that don't do what they are suppose to do.

    How did you go the three months without withdrawals?

    JewelsofDenial , drs can write up to a 90 day supply of Schedule II meds at one visit. They have to write seperate prescriptions for each of the 30 day supply. Although all drs can do this, not many choose to.
