  • My Dr ended up calling in vicodin HP for me yesterday. So about 10 min later the pharmacy calls and says we are out of that too shipment comes in tomorrow. OIVAY!!! oh well, least I got something. I also kinda feel bad for the phamacists and the techs that work there. They are catching heck for this and its not their fault. I heard one guy screaming at the poor girl.
  • Is there a supply chain problem, or a batch plant problem?

    I think we should try and find out as "may" have huge implications on pain control and if we need to consider other meds, perhaps this is better done sooner than later.

    While the rest of the country sorts out the shortage, you can try a gradual transition.

    Makes me mad when I see things about illegitimate use, the spoilers that jeopardise our treatment.

  • please see my post on the other oxycodone thread - ethex has stopped mfg and many drugs were recalled. I think they were not meeting quality standards (I'm not sure how much I can say due to my job - not sure if it's classfied or not). they were the major supplier. We are just wating for another mfg to begin making and shipping. It may be a few months.

    I haven't tried to see a PM dr yet. I'm trying to just deal with it. I don't think I'm doing a very good job of it. PT isn't helping..not so far. My therapist told me she doesn't see how it will really help me. What makes me so mad is that I went to the NS office twice and both times saw the nurse practioner and she evidently relayed my information to the Dr. and I saw her for about four min. I don't even have a return appt. I feel like I was shuttled through and shoved aside you know? Maybe there's nothing wrong with me? Maybe I just act like I'm in pain....yeah, that's it. Don't you think? Sorry...I've had a rough day.

    Thanks for the tip about asking. I wouldn't have thought of it. I don't get it. I really don't. I hope you can find some relief. Why in the world won't they prescribe something for you?? That stinks...really.
