To be honest with you guys I have been taking the oxycodone 30 mg for over a year now I only take for a day and have the whole time, but I do not have a prescription for them and I have a doctors appointment on Wednesday to talk to the doctor about all of this I have a fear that he can get me in trouble because of the work I do do you guys have any comments on this also please thank you

Hi. Are you saying you're looking for a pain management specialist?
If so, where exactly do you live?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes sir I am but I'm also asking how I go about talking to my doctor about taking the prescription that I've been on
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I live way up in the mountains out side of Lake Tahoe
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
OK. Have you told your doctor that so far what he's given you isn't helpful?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes sir he Ups The prescription Im on every time
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Im not a Shy person by no means
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
OK. My suggestion would not be to mention oxydodone or that you've been taking it and it works--there's no way he'd write you a prescription for it that way.
Ask him for a referral to this doctor

I have GREAT INSURANCE so that's not a problem, but like i said in the other messages can I get in trouble? ? Can he report me to my job for taking those ?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I will thank you Dr
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
It would be best not to tell a doctor you've been taking oxycodone without a prescription
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
OK I'll just stop taking them thank u
