Re: Drug testing
You may very well get the boot, taking medication from anyone other than who is it is prescribed for is illegal and plain old dangerous. 15 or 30 mg of oxycodone is by no means a small dose. It can and does kill someone who is not opiod tolerant.
If you have been in pain management for 4 years, you should already know that running out early is reason for being dismissed from your pain management doctors care, as well as getting meds not prescribed for you is also reason for the doctor to dismiss you.
I don't mean to sound harsh, but we all have to play by the rules when it comes to following the directions of our doctors and the contracts that most of us have to sign. If the dosage of your current meds aren't working for your pain levels, then you have to talk to your doctor and see what else can be done to manage your pain levels, and you have to be open to using other modalities to treat the pain, including simple things like ice, heating pads, over the counter pain patches and ointments, etc....TENS, physical therapy are just a few of the adjunct things that can be done to help bring the pain down, accupuncture, meditation, and other means can also help. You have to remember that pain medications are only one means of trying to bring pain levels down to somewhere manageable.
If I were you, an honest discussion with your doctor about what you are really taking dosage wise, and how it works or doesn't work is the best and only option that you have to even begin to get your pain levels treated adequately.
Good luck to you and don't take anyone else's pain medications ever. It's not worth the cost.
