Thank you ctbeth, I don't use street drugs, never had to have a drug test before. I'm on a narcotic pain medicine and that worries me because I know all about the stigma of being on this type of med. And I need this job so badly! I am all legit, have my bottles, no funny business here. Praying I don't get labeled as "one of them" lolView Thread
I am beginning a job as a nurse, being drug tested, have an Rx for my oxy, do they tell the employer what I'm taking or does the lab just tell them I failed? Or do I pass since I have an Rx? I've never had any issues with abuse of my meds, no Dr shopping, no change in pharmacies, never called the doc n said "the dog ate it", etc...View Thread
Well, I made it to another pain management doc who Rx'd for the same thing I was on, however, it cost me $600. between doc n meds because I had also lost my insurance for Rx and of course the doc only takes cash. I have insurance now and am searching for someone who accepts insurance. I'm also considering the Suboxone as they claim it is used for pain also. Sorry it took so long to get back here, my internet was shut off due to the cost of my medical issues. Thank you all for caring! I will be back (1) to let y'all know if anyone takes insurance, (2) how the Suboxone plays out, (3) to see if anyone has opinions on the doc's and insurance and/or about the suboxone...pro's, con's??View Thread
No, I've been going to Pain management, they Rx my meds. I have severe RA, sacroiliac joint arthritis and spinal stenosis, also multiple herniated disks. I have been disabled since 1997 so I have Medicare only. Does the hospital admit me? Or do they just treat and release? I've made it through the night but can't walk, can't get comfortable...I've never been in this situation before and I think I'm having withdrawls? I just want to be able to get up n shower n be somewhat normal. I can't take it anymore. I'm a very happy person usually. Thanks blessedladyptl for responding. It helps to know someone hears me.View Thread
I am out of my pain medicine and out of options. I had to move suddenly due to financial issues. I am in a new state and don't know where to turn for help. I made an apt with a new pain management physician but they won't see me until they receive my records from the old Dr. I called my PCP and explained but he has not returned my call yet. It is now a weekend so no Dr is available. That leaves me home, in pain, without meds for over a month. Do I go to the Emergency department here ? And will they help me until my appointment with the new Dr ? I wish there was an alternative, but I feel like I won't make it. I took my last pill this morning and it's getting unbearable. Any suggestions for a new member would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, MissyView Thread
