Re: need help/advice on how to deal with dr
First, this so called "girlfriend" isn't really your friend , otherwise, they would not have put you in this position once, let alone twice now. You are very fortunate in that your doctor was willing to give you a second chance to pass a drug test, but now, you do not have enough meds because of a second instance of theft, and because you took more than you should have because you were ill? I'm not sure how being ill would require you to take more than you were supposed to, but the bigger issue is why you would have left your meds out where this same "friend" could access your meds, since you already knew that she stole some of them last month, and you gave her the opportunity to do it again?? That doesn't make sense.
I think that you may have put yourself into a very bad situation, and to claim now that your "girlfriend" took your meds two months in a row, I'm afraid your doctor is not going to believe at this point. Taking other meds to try to pass the test isn't going to work, because dilaudid breaks down very specifically in the urine and blood stream, so the metabolites are what is being looked for, as well as the amount of them.
If I were you, I would be holding onto whatever dilaudid I had on hand, and making sure that I am taking only those meds that I am prescribed, in the amounts that they are prescribed and hoping that you pass the test. Then I would also find myself a new girlfriend, and purchasing a strong lock box and putting my meds in it. This kind of situation is the biggest reason why CP patients are told NOT to let others know they are taking opiates.
