I have herniated discs as c5/6 and 3/4. I have had a MRI. The spine doc gave me a perscription of Vicodin, 1 or 2 at bedtime. I actually need them for during the day to function. Sleeping doesn't give me a problem as of yet as I take Zoloft and a Klonopin to sleep and it helps I get up at 3:30am to go to work everyday. lol I can't get a refill until June 22. I'm going to call the PM doc that I've only had one visit to when I need a refil so I have some relief before the shot I'm getting on July 2. I'm wondering if he'll give me the same orders as the spine doc or different orders. For the refill, we leave a message on the machine at the office and they write out the perscription that day and we have to pick it up there. Do I say something on the answering machine to the effect that I need more relief during the day or should I just leave it the way it is and see what he prescribes? As I am at work right now, the back of my neck is screaming.
I'm sorry for all the posts and I'm real new to this. I may have repeated myself in another post in Pain Management.
I hope you all have a good day today! It's beautiful outside here finally after days of clouds.
