My doc gave me Vicodine when my back started this long descent into Hades. One pill every eight hours. At first it worked for four hours. Now, five weeks later, I take two of the suckers and get nothing. He won't change the meds.
Local background: Last year quite a few pain management clinics were busted and closed for too many drugs hitting the streets. Lots of docs in the area quit writing prescriptions for Xanex, Soma, etc...cold turkey. No scripts. Doesn't matter why you may need the medications.
So, shopping for a new doc is not likely to improve the situation. Any advice?
