I have been on a prescription of vicoden 7.5 650 for over 10 years for a medical condition. I called to get my prescription filled - 90 a month taking it 3 times per day. I have never misuesed, taking the prescribed dose. I went out of town and was in a care wreck. My prescription and several things were missing from my car, as I was taken to the hospital and my car was moved by a wrecker service. There was snow on the ground and ice, so I am not sure it was not thrown on the ground unit snow and ice.
The Dr. at the hosptial prescribed a lessor dose for 3 days supply. I also had shingles so I went to a Dr. the day after new year's day. I told him that I took vicodin prescribed by my doctor. He gave me enough to take unitl my other prescription was up for refill.
I did not tell my doctor that has treated me for 3 years about another Dr. prescribing the vicodin. Last week when I ran out, after three days of asking the pharmacist if my prescription was fill, he said it was denied. I had left a message for my Dr. to call me if she had any questions, and I did not hear back from her. Her staff told me it would be faxed Friday. I have been off the durg from Thrusday unitl today, Sunday, and all I have is a head ache and I am irritable. I feel I need to go to my Dr. and explain why I was given a prescirption out of state for we had a trusting relationship. When I called the after hours Dr. Friday nignt, he said "I have a note not to prescribe you narcotics - I have been working on this for 3 days" and he was very rude and acussing. I tried to explain the car wreck, the fact that I did not take the pills that were lost (or stolen) and he cut me off and said" You can tell it to your docor on Monday". I felt humilated and ashamed.
I have been off the drug for 3 days and I have pain (that is what is was prescibed for) and a headache. I did have trouble sleeping and I feel anxious. I have not had the bad side affects of withdrawl yet. I am so embarrsed that I don't know if I should go to see my doctor or not. She prescribed them for a medical condition, but I a so embarrased. I was so violated by the on call Dr. that I feel like a fool. I am in pain, but what should I expect as far as w/drawl if I decided not to go back to her. It sounds as if the on call Dr. has labelleb me a drug seeker.
