Customer Question

I have fibromyaligia since 1998 and have ran out of my medication for pain. My rheumatolog nurse said it was sent out on the 8th of May. I ran out on the 11. Is their any pain medication that I can get on line?

Hello
No
It is illegal to get pain meds on line, in fact, in many cases a felony.
Why have you not called the nurse back.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I did today and I think she did not mail it when she said she did. I slwas call s WK ahead so that it gets her on time
What about anything else?
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 1 year ago.

What is your question at this point?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Nothing, as I guess I will have to wait till it come in. What about tramodol. I sm also s retired nurse and each tech and I have not done this before!!
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Echo technician retired.
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 1 year ago.
Tramadol is also technically a controlled substance.
What are you asking about it?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Thought maybe s different class. Has all States gone to a written prescription for meds like this ? I know IN and KY have.
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 1 year ago.
All states, every one, it is a matter of federal law, not state law.
You can not get any pain meds on line.
Is that your question or is there something else about this situation?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No, other ? Got my answer which I thought was right anyway. Thank you.
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 1 year ago.
No other.
In fact, going around your doctors prescription is also likely to get you in trouble....dismissed from the practice, or blacklisted by the pharmacy.
I would not recommend that in any form.
Good luck.
OK, so that is an initial answer….

I would never go around my rheumatologist as I have been seeing him for over 10 yrs and drive 4 hrs to go see him. Sorry if you thought I was doing that.
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 1 year ago.
Just want to make sure.
Good luck.
