No main meds for 3-4 days.


I never written here before but this is a site I do some reading on whenever I have an issue. So I am finding myself in a bind, my medication is going to be out by Thursday, I'm taking Oxycodone 7.5mg 2x a day and narco 10mg 3x a day and tramadol 50MG 1x before bed . I'm going to be 100% out of both till Monday evening because my doctor is out till then and terrified of the pain I'm going to be in and the withdrawals I'm going to have to face. My doctor had tried a few things over this year and I do have much of it left because one wasn't working well and other other I'm just scared to actually take. My question is, what one would be more equivalent to what I'm taking. nucynta is the one I'm just scared to take and I only have taken one of them, it made me tired but really did not neutralize the pain, but as it was only one tab I took, I'm not 100% sure I allowed it to really work. My other med I have is morphine sulfate which I also only took once and I don't know if the instance was isolated to the one time but I had a big headache that day, but it did seem to help a bit. I am hoping I can get my tramadol refilled which will help a bit but not much. How bad is this going to be? with any of the other meds, how much withdrawal, If the pain gets to be too much I see myself going to the ER.

Note: I posted this in the wrong community before, so I hope I have the right one this time.

I'm sorry no one has gotten to your questions.
I take it you're in pain management? If so, you should be taking your meds as prescribed so you won't run out before you see your Dr.
If you have a contract then it says you can only take what your pain Dr prescribes for you. You were only prescribed Morphine one time, and I right about that? I'm not quite sure how long it stays in your system. What would you do if your Dr gave you a urine test and Morphine was in it? Your Dr could release you from the clinic for taking the morphine.
I hope you got through any withdrawals you may have possibly had. If you're not getting enough pain relief from your meds and you're running out before your next visit then you need to let your Dr know about this. He/she may increase your dose or try you on something else.
