Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.

I am sorry you lost your medications.

if you suspect someone stealing it, you should call the police and file a police report. you need to get a police report to show your doctor if someone might have stolen it.

you should also call and tell your doctor and let them know what happened as well.

if you are taping down your pain medications, your doctor might have to give you a small prescription of your medicaitons to help you continue to taper your medications until you are off of your pain medications.

what pain medicaitons where you on?

what taper schedule were you on?

have you told your doctor that you have lost your pain medications?

have you looked everywhere they might have been?
