I am a patient with a pain clinic that I have signed a contract with that I will get no narcotics from other doctors.
I have an abcessed tooth and cannot get the tooth pulled until
I am on antibiotics for 3 days due to a heart murmer. My dentist tried to give me a script for pain meds to which I told him I could not accept due to the contract. He reccommended that I increase my oxycodone from 3x a day to 4 to control the pain. 3xs a day was not controlling the tooth pain so I have increased my dosage. Here is the problem now I will run out of my meds before I should per my contract. Will the pain clinic take this into consideration? Will they write my next script before 30 days due to having to take more because of my tooth? Should I call them now and let them know of the situation? Has anyone else been in a situation like this and how did you handle this?
