Did she mention a procedure like this or some imaging, testing, injections? Also, can you call the pharmacy to call for a refill or do you have to get a triplicate from the dr? If I were you I would be more afraid to be in pain with no medicine than i would be from the dr. But, i certainly understand the terrible feeling of having to rely on the compassion, mercy of a dr to be able to function as i have been in chronic pain for 24 years, is this why you are frightened? Im sorry that you are afraid & i hope that you are ok.
I agree with gmak.....if your doctor didnt explain the reduced dosage.......why didnt you say anything at that time?

Its much easier to ask,talk,or discuss a prescription issue at the time they are writing it.However it is a MUCH tougher issue after the fact IMO
