Your dad should contact the first Doc for a referall to either pain management or help in dealing with the abstinence syndrome (withdrawal) - Or possibly contact the ER Doc and ask for further guidance. Under no circumstances should your dad have been cut off cold with no options or referrals........make the Doc do his job - to care for his patient or find someone that can....
I would get on the phone or go directly to the docs office and demand your dad gets a referral also. This is nothing to mess with especially with your dad having a brain tumor. good luck and let us know what is going on. sara
Oh and one more thing. Bless your heart for being there for your dad. sara
Well the pharmacy went to bat for him w/ the state board and they filled the original prescription and before that he had gone to the er and they gave him 60, but i guess his doctor had him taking twenty a day! So he's trying to wean himself off of it, but he knows he is addicted to them so its hard
I don't know about AZ but in FL it's not even leagal to cut someone off unless they're testing for an illicit drug or nonprescribed drugs. Even then they don't usually cut off cold turkey! Hand with him. He'll need some help. I'm glad you're there for hom! - John
