Just got home from the doctor's...
I explained the "B/T" discussion on here and he stated, quote, "Nope...
I can't write the prescription for percocet because, frankly, the
pharmacy won't fill it. Plus, the D.E.A. will flip out! So, the best I
can recommend is Tylonol (spelling?) or Advil."
Bob, this is bullshit. Your doc needs to medicate yer pain based on his judgement, NOT based on his fear of the dea. First of all they DO NOT freak out on an individual patients dosage like that! They look at prescribing PATTERNS. And pharmacies WILL fill these things. Not all will, but believe me, there are plenty of pharmacies which fill high dose base meds AND breakthru meds too.
You need a doctor with some balls. Any doc who fears the dea like that is NEVER gonna put yer best interests first.
So, I guess that's the course I have take. He DID write another script
for OxyContin 40MG 3x a day. This one was for 42, whereas the one on
Saturday was for 28. Now, a question to all of you: Yesterday, here in
Maine, the temp was 99 with about 10000% humidity (actually it was
about 75%) and the sun was GREAT (that's how I tan nowadays...I slather
on the oil and put the shorts on, take the roof outta the Corvette and
drive all over the place!), BUT!
I felt like absolute CRAP after about 2 hours. I asked the doc about it
today, wondering if I had the adverse reaction because of the
OxyContin, and he said that the "sun was really funky yesterday".
What the hell does THAT mean?
Has anyone else ever had that happen when they have been on this med?
Again, yer being underdosed. He needs to look at the oxycodone dose youve been on and prescribe from there. You should be getting more like 60mg 3x/day, esp. if youve been taking more like 20 of the perc's per day then 10 per day. Yer looking at withdrawls. Minor, but that's surely fit with the funky feeling.
Thanks again everyone for all your help, it is TRULY appreciated!
You need to find another doctor. ONe who takes care of his patients and puts their best interests first, NOT one who prescribes outta fear. Thats just ridiculous.
It sounds like it might be time to toss a BT/rescue dose on in there.
Everyone is so different, but you have to imagine your pain relief as a line
graph. The line has peaks and the line has valleys. The line of this drug
working on you, may be too flat or a valley too deep. Enter the rescue
If you can find or have a PDR (I figure you guys had one at the station) you
can find the "relief graphs" in the medication literature. But remember all
that's gathered for thousands of test patients over years of testing so you
won't follow it exactly, but you will see certain "relief lines" for certain
drugs are straighter than others and most want you to test drive a med for 2
weeks, before you decide up or down, but they also suggest you have rescue
meds available as you adjust.
It's not out of line to talk to the doc now,maybe he can give you enough of
a " kick" to make this med succeed.
Hang in there, you will find the right dose to work. And if you feel like
you may say something to make the dock think you're "shopping" tell him why
you are hesitant, then let it go. If your doc feels you're holding back you
can end up on the shit list for nothing. He can't fix it if you can't say
"doc it hurts!". They don't want to give you something that's not working.
As a Cop, you know where that stuff ends up, so they want to hear it, and
get you on something that does work.

I was taking between 10 and 20 10/325 Percocet a day
I realize I've only been taking the 40mg OxyContin's since Saturday,
but it really does not seem to be working the same way as the Percocet.
I know that makes me sound like I'm "med-seeking", but I'm kinda at my
I'm sorry, but what were you taking before this change in medications.

Well, I've been taking the OxyContin 40mg 3x/day since Saturday and
it's not working as well as I expected. Any suggestions of what to do?
