Hello, I am relatively new to pain management. I know there is a contract about other doctors prescribing you medicine.
I went to my general care doctor just because I had a chronic cough and felt terrible. He prescribed me your normal anti biotic and prednisone. BUT here is the catch and its pretty unique, this is like a stop in walk in clinic type place, and he was going to prescribe me hydrocodone cough syrup for my cough and to help me sleep. You have to bring in the sheet to the pharmacy obviously nowadays and I think they printed the wrong prescription, and it was an old pain 90 pill 3 month supply of hydrocodone pills that he prescribed me a long time ago BEFORE I went to pain management. I had to go to work, so without even looking I assumed it was the cough syrup prescription took it home dropped it off for my wife to take and went back to work. I came home and its a bottle of 90 pills? She didn't know the situation with pain management so I freaked out about it being filled!!!
This was a complete accident. Now I have an appointment this Tuesday and I know they cant prescribe me any narcotics which is fine I have plenty but I just don't want them to think I was seeking pain meds elsewhere when it was an honest error on their part due to the lack of organization they have. Its a low grade doc in abox as they call it... What do you think I should do? I don't want to be dropped by my pain doctor. I do not know if each visit they check your recent prescription status or what? Please let me know how to approach this for those of you who have a lot of experience with pain doctors.
