My Iternal Medicine Dr (PCP) has begin handling my PM. After all the horror stories, I am relieved that he has done so. Just for reference. I have 7 herniated discs in my back. Some minor and some moderate. The pain has been really intense lately.
So, my Dr has me on MS-IR 15's. We are now in the "evaluation" stage. The first week, we started low. 1 tab every 4 hours. This worked great for 3 days, then did nothing. I made an apppointment and explained this to him. He increased the dose to 2 tabs every 4 hours which has been great.
Right now I am reaching the end of my week. He told me that I no longer had to make appointments, just call and he would discuss it with me over the phone as well as authorize refills.
However, I called first thing this morning and his receptinist said he would call me back. So far, he hasn't. Again, I am almost out of meds and I can feel the pain rushing back up.
I know Dr's are VERY busy and I really don't want to call back and bother him.
So is there anyone else in this situation? Would it be bad form to call back today or should I wait till tomorrow?
