Cut off... a bit worried.

Just need some advice..I've been cut off by my doctor..had been getting Vic for years for my endo and back problems..along with other stuff. I only took 1 or 2 a day. That's it..no more than that. Suddenly..I was denied. Have no clue why or what..but just denied. I'm a little scared because I hear about all the withdrawl stuff..I'm kind of upset that I was allowed to be on them without question for years..then suddenly it's stopped. What do I do? Will I have serious withdrawl symptoms or should it be minor. I have some left...I just feel very confused about this move.

Re: Cut off... a bit worried.

Hello Laye,

With all due respect,you neither say how many milligrams you were taking and how many tablets you were prescribed to take per day.
I know that certain states are really cracking down on certain prescriptions and the regulations are much more stringent now.
Did you at least ask for an explanation as to why the abrupt halt?
You deserve at least that.

Respectfully
Phoenix

It's good that you have some left. This gives you the chance to slowly reduce your intake which is the best way to get off of them.

Re: Cut off... a bit worried.

Be sure to ask your doctor what's up if you found out by a refill request being denied at the pharmacy. Sometimes the doctor just needs to see you again if it's been a while. Assuming you were on 5 mg of hydrocodone (5/500 is basic Vicodin though there are the 7.5 ES and the 10 HP) then 2 a day seems like a low amount since it was probably written for 1-2q4-6hpp.
I highly recommend contacting the doctor's office to find out why it was denied.

Re: Cut off... a bit worried.

Thanks to all for responding...I got it all sorted out. It was a mistake..I got worried. I have major back and endo issues and everything has been the same for awhile..I take such a low amount..but I still worried that I'd have some kind of strange reaction if I were to suddenly stop.
