Was seeing a pain mgmt doctor for a 1 yr 1/2 with compliance. Jan 2017 my prescription insurance changed and I had to choose either the ER form or the IR form of Oxymorphone. I (wrongly) chose the IR form, and within a few months began having trouble making my 5 pills a day last 24 hours. I'd wake in the middle of the night in pain and sometimes had to take a 6th pill to get back to sleep. I came up 4 days short in May, and stupidly, 2 days before seeing the doctor, took a 4mg piece of suboxone someone gave me back in 2015 for giving them a ride somewhere. I held onto it for an emergency. Well, 2 days before seeing my doctor, I took it because I was experiencing withdrawal, and intended to ask him to put me back on the ER form. He took a urine screen, it showed, and I was dismissed. The fact is, I wasn't trying to get high. I never had the opportunity to sit with the doctor and explain why I did what I did. The nurse mgr ignores my requests to sit and talk to him.
Do I have a right to talk to my doctor about what happened?
