The last few days I have noticed that my break though pain meds where not working like they always have. ( Oxycodein 5 mg ). Last night while shopping I asked hubby to give me 2 of them, and when he did he said "hey you only have a few of these left". So today I called my Drs office and spoke with his nurse and asked if I could come by tomorrow and pick up the script. She needs to check with Dr and will get back to me.
SO later tonight I am thinking wow I went though those pills really quick this time.
Here I have been taking the wrong pills for the past few days!!! :B
I have WEEKS worth of pain pills left.
So I tell hubby all of this and he says "do not call the Dr back as they will think you can not handle your meds correctly and will stop giving them to you".
Looking back now I know what happened. We had a super super busy week with our daughter and grandchildren moving and I was keeping my pills in my purse as we were doing so much running around. The 2 bottles look 100% the same, and I did not have my glasses on and was in a rush and was taking the wrong pills.
BUT I feel really dishonest not telling the Dr I don't need more pain meds right now.
If you do the math of what I am allowed to take I could be out of the pills.
So I am asking for your opinions please.
Do you think if I call and tell the truth it will hurt me getting my pills in the future?
I hate having to even think this way.....
