Okay, so let me preface this by saying this isn't the typical I need something stronger post.
I have three slipped discs, DDD, scoliosis, and recently, pretty bad sciatica. I'm on 10/325 mg Norco (1/2 to 1 tab every six hours). My daily max is 4. So, my issue is that my PM only gives me 100 pills, rather than 120.
Most days I take about 2.5 tablets total. That is the average, I'd say. But we all have bad days and I'll max out at 4 tablets on those days. My dilemma is that lately I've been having more bad days. So I'm scared I'm going to run out in the last five days. My pharmacy and insurance read it as a 25 day script. I haven't run out early this far, but I'm scared one day I'll have to choose between maxing out on a bad day or saving the max for a day that might be worse. I really want to approach my PM doctor about this but I'm incredibly nervous on how to do so. I know it's only 20 tablets, but I think we all know that can make the difference on a bad day. So if anyone can give me some advice on how to approach this, I'd really appreciate it.
