Hi. Sorry for your predicament. That must be really frustrating and scary. The one good thing about suboxone is that you no longer have to worry as much about getting your medication or not getting it. That's really the truth these days as there is more and more pressure on doctors to not prescribe long term oxycontin to pain patients. I think they are under tremendous scrutiny and pressure when prescribing this. In fact, one false move by them can bring repercussions to their license to practice medicine. Depends on the state, but in mine they can definitely drop you for any reason they feel that it is warranted. I am wondering what medications did you test positive for after the ER visit? Were they heart related or something else? Absolutely no judgment so don't read anything I"m writing that way. I'm with you and support you and am just trying to help and understand! The reason I ask is that you have more of a case to make if they were not controlled substances. Your other option is if the other pain clinics are concerned about your dosage of oxy is to decrease it. Can you survive on less? You've been on it a long time and that probably gets an immediate panicky reaction from you. I understand! But you are between a rock and a hard place. What is your pain from? Is there any hope for working on that? To decrease your need for the high dose oxy? Had you told them about the ER visit for your heart at the appointment you went to? The first time right after the ER visit and when they did the testing?
If you went to the appointment at the PM office right after your discharge from the hospital for the heart issues, why did you not inform the PMs office immediately and show them the copies of the discharge papers you were given? It would have listed the meds you were given, dosages, diagnosis and proved to the PM clinic you were upfront and honest. It also may have avoided any problems with a failed test.
Waiting a month, then after failing the Irvine test appears like you are trying to cover the failed test, even if you had legitimate reasons for failing the test.
Unfortunately, doctors can dismiss any patient for any reason, at any time.
Should have said urine test, not Ivine test
