I will try and keep this as short as possible. I posted a while go regarding my new Dr and his taking on my PM. He started me on Morphine Sulfate, 15MG's, 4x a day. That did not work and I made another appt. He asked me to try 2 at a time, 30MG's 4x a day. This managed my pain nicely. Not 100% relief but I understand that is not the point...
So this went on, a week supply here, 2 week supply there. Finally my boss started questioning the frequent trips every 1 to 2 weeks for med refills. So I told my Dr that I cannot do this. I need to be given a longer supply.
He suddenly didn't feel comfortable with that level of pain medicine and asked me to come in. I did so and he acted like I was taking WAY too much even though he approved the scripts. So that is question one, he and I seemed to be on the same page then suddenly, he acted like he didn't have any idea what was going on.
The end result, he has me on MS Contin CR, 60MG's, 2x a day with the MS IR for when it gets bad. He wrote me the script and then said he wanted a urine sample. I said fine, I have nothing to hide, no biggie.
Later that day, I was looking at my exit sheet and at the bottom it said "SAP (Substance Abuse Profile), Urine Test."
Does this mean he believes I am a substance abuser for following his orders? Should I question what that means? When I went for the urine test, the nurse said to wait until she gives me the "OK" to leave. She did so and I assume it was to validate I was actually taking my meds.
Ok, so not short. But any insight would be helpful.
