Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hello from JustAnswer.
Once you decided to return to your primary care physician and received the Percocet, why did you return to the other doctor?
At this point, you may have already burned your bridges. If the second doctor is providing a different aspect of care, it is perfectly OK to see multiple doctors, each serving a role in your care. But when seeking controlled substances from more than one physician, and particularly if it is done without the fore-knowledge of each physician, then it is appropriate for the doctor to refuse to write another prescription. In fact, if they were to continue to write the prescriptions for opiates, they might come under investigation of the state medical licensing board (although each board has their own threshold of when to initiate an investigation).
At this point, your only options would be to speak to each doctor and try to work with each regarding their respective roles in your care, and that part of the plan for care is that you will only get controlled substances from one doctor. If both of these doctors have gotten to the point that they are unwiling to prescribe controlled substances, then you would have to establish with a different doctor, but eve that doctor will be able to access the information about the prescriptions that have been filled to this point, so you certainly need to be up front with that physician.
