My doctor retired and I am seeing a PA. He cannot prescribe what my doctor had me on for years. I have had two cervical spine surgeries with rods and cages. I have vertebra in my Lombard that need surgery, I would rather put off and fibromyalgia. Who would I need to see to get my Norco refilled.
Hello
You can only get such medicine from a doctor who has examined you.

You would have to get a new doctor, you can not otherwise get this medicine legally.

Where are you exactly, city /state?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
West Frankfort, IL
The PA has to work under a doctor. What doctor is supervising the PA?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
None at this time
I don't think that is legal either, depending on what is being done.

I suggest you find a pain management specialist.
