This month we tried morphine as the percocets didn’t seem to be working. After a week it was painfully evident that the morphine was not going to be the better choice. I went back to the dr yesterday and asked for the percocets again. I had to turn in my remaining morphine pills and was told that was all I needed for the insurance to cover the second prescription in 30 days.
Well they didn’t send it. And so I left a message for the drs nurse and she must have sent the script, but she didn’t add the note that they confiscated my remaining morphine so the insurance is refusing to fill it. The pharmacy will call tomorrow and see what they can do and it will probably be between the dr and the insurance company, but in the meantime I am going to run out of the few percocets I have remaining.
I have been taking these for about a year and a half so I gather I am probably hooked on them and besides I need them for the pain.
Thanks to the people who abuse pain medicine those of us who need them have issues sometimes getting them and face possible withdrawal. The pain is bad enough without having to fight for the right to get the medication I need.
