  • They must help you.Good luck!
  • Do you have an Urgent Care Center in the area? I know that the ones in the town where I live are allowed to give Oxycontin, but only 10 tablets at a time. This certainly could help you out in the meantime! Take your old prescription bottle with you and try the closest one! Also, in the meantime switch from Motrin to Aleve, it helps back & joint pain much better. Get help! And I hope you feel better soon!
