I was recently told by my pm doc that she could no longer prescribe my pain meds because of a urine test that showed to small of an amount of one of my meds?? I have been on MS contin 60mg 3xday, and percocet 10-325mg as needed for almost two years with the same clinic (post failed ALIF surgery). Anyway the ms contin shoued up correctly but I guess the percocet did not show enough? I have been in contact with the clinic about this because I thought as needed meant you did not have to take ALL the time.
Anyway all they would say is they can work with me on a plan to taper off using the last month of meds they prescribed. So that is it? I have tried to take less before and the pain is still there. Do I have any options for finding a new PM clinic, or since I apparently failed my urine test does that ace me out from anyone else helping me now??
I am a little scared to go completly off in just 4 weeks.
Any input would help.
