I just left my pain management Dr (Who is normally an amazing doctor that is really trying to help me when others just didnt care.) And he cut my time seeing him and my RX's down. The Doctor and an assistant or two usually spend about a half hour with me each month seeing what is new in my health, and to try another new type of medication (The gauntlet of rx's I call it.) Yet today I went in with some adverse reactions causing my pain to spike as well as cause massive sweating and a trembling in my body, which was from starting Lyrica last month.
Anyhow, he came in to the room and told me he needed to drop my Pain meds cause they were causing it? I kept trying to tell him it was the lyrica (Considering Ive been on the pain medications for years now and never had a side effect issue). Yet he just said I have to drop your pain medication quantity and I asked if there was a new law and he just said yes. and handed me my prescriptions and told me to stop the Lyrica and he left?
So my question is. Has there been any major prescription narcotics changes in the last month I havent hear about. Im in Florida and I take oxycotin, 3times a day, oxycodone 4 times a day, along with ibuprofen, and an occasional small dose of kolonopin if I need it. He cut my oxycontin down from 3 a day to 2 a day?? Im just confused because usually if something like this happens it is due to new doctors taking over a clinic and turning it into a pill mill seemingly overnight, in which the patients waiting in the lobby are usually just there for a fix or they are crying up a storm about the meds being dropped.
So If anyone could help me with info on whether the laws changed or if there is any advice how to handle this issue I would appreciate it.
(Sorry if I didnt post this in the right forum. My brain is not working well due to the intense side effects of the lyrica. Which I found out I need to ween off of.)
