I had Surgery to repair a badly torn Rotator Cuff on January

Customer Question

I had Surgery to repair a badly torn Rotator Cuff on January 27th of this year. I am still in pain. I only really need one or two pills of 5Mg Norco. However, my Doctor will no longer write a prescription for me under any circumstances. This decision is based soley on Policy. Where do I go to get a prescription for just a few of these 5Mg pills. I am desperate. Can you please help.

no, it is illegal for online doctors to give out prescriptions to clients we can't see and can't examine.

have you tried to ice your shoulder to help decrease pain after your surgery?

icing with a bag of ice wrapped in a towel may be enough to help decrease pain.
