No I am not c/t still on the tram. Tried but could not do it. Said why  in my previous post. Tommorrow I am going to try and taper down with what I have. Yes I know it is illegal but that is how desperate I have become. I have done this pharmacy scam before. I used to work for a Doc that is what gave me the idea.

Please talk me out of this again. Everytime I do it I risk going to jail and I am raising a 12 year old son,and I own a home.In spite of this I still take the risk (pathetic)

Just don't do it.  It is illegal; you will get caught. Do your really want to risk losing your home and your son?  This is a very real possibility. Can you see your doctor for some "support meds" to help you taper if you cannot go c/t?  Please don't try to fill the script, it will not turn out well for you either way.  Be strong for your son.

DO NOT DO IT!! I have a friend who has worked as a pharmacy tech for 5 years. Whatever you are going to do, whatever trick you think you can pull....they see it everyday, multiple times a day. You will get caught, end of story. It is a felony...not worth it.

I am afraid if I tell my doc he will label me an addict, then when i really am in pain i won't be able to get anything for pain. I have already filled the script this way too many times to count.

Look up an addiction specialist and have him help you with your addiction. Then you won't have to tell your GP about your problem.

don't they have to bust you right when you pick up the script? I mean if you got the script left the store went home your free right?
Blank

You are definitley not in the clear. I dont want to make you scared, but they can show up at your door tomorrow for a scam you pulled last year. I don't know exactly what you are trying to pull, but my buddy has told me many different stories about scams...some where the people were picked up at the store, and some where the cops went to their homes later. It all depends. Sometimes it is the pharmacy that notices something strange, sometimes it is insurance companies. Ultimately, based on what I hear from him...you really do not want to try to trick a pharmacy. They really are trained to notice anything out of the ordinary. And just because you got away with it once doesnt mean you wont get busted this time. What exactly are you doing anyway?

Most of us, as addicts, have done things we aren't proud of to score our addiction. I highly doubt you want to find out the answer to your question the hard way, so my advice to you is NOT to do it! I have known people that have been in the exact same situation you are and got caught, lost EVERYTHING because of it, including their JOB at the Dr. office! Once that goes, you will have it on your record (both employment AND criminal) and then what? You will NEVER get another job in the medical field ever again, and then EVERYONE will know. Then of course you risk losing your son, house, job, every single thing you have worked very hard to get. Oh and not to mention withdrawaling in jail of all places!  I can't even imagine going through that! I'm not trying to be mean, so please don't take it that way, but I just hope you understand the seriousness of this situation, and I don't want to have to say, "I told you so"

Good luck with it!! I know you'll make the right decision!

I'm just curious...You mean you call it in saying you are or work for a dr.?
Blank
320944_tn?1245970199
I call the pharmacy and act like I am a nurse,calling in a script for a patient. When I pick up the script I always use a pharmacy that has a drive thru. I do not have insurance and always  pay cash.

By the way after reading everyone's post I AM NOT GOING TO BE DOING THIS AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!

I have one valid script left for 120 pills. I am going to pick this up tommorrow please tell me how to taper down. I don't have insurance so even if I wanted to I would not be able to enter a addiction facility. I have no choice but to do it by myself.

I don't understand post. I'm from UK so might be different here but you have to have a prescription signed by a dr here. I know people that have used stolen script pads or stolen scripts that haven't been cancelled yet but if you phoned a prescription to a chemist here they would request a prescription from dr's and then not give you it till they had the signed script back. If you do just have to phone it in i wish it was that easy when i was still using. Sorry thats sounds terrible. WOuld you really go to jail for it over there i know it is alot stricter in US but i doubt you'd get jail for it here unless you'd been doing it loads and you'd been selling the drugs and they had proof. Its pretty weird here you can get away with loads before going to jail unless its something quite serious. My friend had 18 seperate shop lifting offences before going to jail and then she only went for couple of months cos she'd breached probation.

Yes here in the U.S. all you have to do is phone in the script. They do not consider tramadol a controlled substance, do not understand why since it is so addicting. They do not even ask for DEA number. With my Klonopin script I have to take the written script to the pharmacy, and sometimes I will here the pharmacist call the doc office and verify.

I have never tried phoning in the Klonopin because I know it would not work. Yes you can go to jail for this, but if you have no priors they will usually put you on probation, community service, and pay court costs and cost of probation. Still a hassle that is why I won;t be doing this again.

this is by far the best taper schedule i have seen,,,i did not write but i recommend it .......
insert yourself where needed..... I do have to say I don't understand if your going to be clean for over a week why you want to start again just to quit again


My take schedule (1500mg/day).  Chewed tablets in half.  
- 500mg at 9:00am
- 600mg at 1:00pm
- 400mg at 5:00pm

Ween-off schedule by day:
1st day - 300mg at 9am. 200mg at 11am. 200mg at 2pm. 300mg at 6pm.  200mg at 9pm.  TOTAL: 1200mg for day.
2nd day - Same.
3rd day - 200mg at 9am. 200mg at 2pm.  200mg at 5pm.  200mg at 9pm.  TOTAL:  800mg for day.
4th day - Same.
5th day - 100mg at 9am.  100mg at 11am.  100mg at 2pm.  100mg at 4pm.  100mg at 6pm. 100mg at 9pm.  TOTAL: 600mg for day.

PLEASE NOTE***  The quantities I have on hand.  I stockpiled this **** to make sure I could do this and run out right when the time was right.  You can't just decide one day to quit and do it.  It takes planning and you MUST go easy on yourself when planning this downgrade.  This is a lifestyle change that you are making too.  Stick to it!  You just can't start cutting yourself off because you think you are doing a good deed for yourself.  You'll fail everytime.  Plan plan plan.

6th day - Same
7th day - 100mg after 9am. 100mg after 1pm. 100mg after 4pm.  100mg after 8pm.  TOTAL:  400mg
8th day - Same
9th day - 100mg after 10am.  100mg after 3pm.  100mg after 8pm.  TOTAL: 300mg
10th day - Same
11th day - 50mg after 10am.  50mg after 3pm. 100mg after 8pm.  TOTAL: 200mg for day.
12th day - Same.
13th day - 50mg after 10am.  50mg at 3pm.  50mg after 8pm.
14th day - Same.
15th day - 50mg after 11am.  50mg after 6pm.   TOTAL: 100mg for day.

I had to do day 15 for a few days....

Day 16:  50mg after lunch time.  If I made it beyond lunch without taking it, I saved it until after dinner so I could give myself I chance to sleep.  

Day 17: Same.
Day 18: Same.
Day 19: Same and I ran out.

I must have been not clear enough I have not been clean. If I had been clean for 1 week,I would call the pharmacy and tell them not to give them to me.
