I have severe pain in my left hip and leg due to a recent

I have severe pain in my left hip and leg due to a recent injury.I have been taking oxycodone 10mg prn 6 hours from pain management doctor for the last year although the dose was less at the start.My left Ileg was injured and operated on a few years ago.,I usually took ibrrpohen 800mg between the doses of oxycodone for pain.I was diagnosed with a stomach ulcer a few months ago and told by my gastroenterologist to stop the ibuprofen,I did for the last 2 months but reinjured it again a few weeks ago and in severe pain at times.I called the gastroenteroigistdoctors office yesterday and stated I wanted to know if I could take a fewe aleves {naproxen] between the doses of oxycodone.I left a few voicemails for the niurse stating I was on oxycodone -6 and didn't want any narcotics.I spoke with her and she said the doctor didn't want me to take the aleve because of my large ulcer and said he would order 50 mg tramado every4 hours.she said she would call Walmart pharmacy and call me back.She called back and said that they said it was agianest the law to prescribe narcotic for me since I was on a pain contract and that I would have to see my pain contract doctor.I did notify them I was on oxycodone but didtnt think about the pain contract because I thought they already knew I was on one.I didn't know that I coulnt receive any other meds from another doctor.I have never received any narcotics for another doctor except pain meds post op this year and I was assuming that it was okay as long as they knoew about the other oxycodone I used.I was not aware of the law agianest thisShe stated that the doctor didn't want me to take the aleve and wanted me to take tramadol every 4 hours 50mgShe stated she would call Walmart pharmacy and call me back.She called me back and said they said it was against the law to percribe me any pain meds since I was on a pain management contract.She said that I would have to see my pain management doctor to have him prescribe me painmmeds..They did not prescribe me any narcotics and I even asked the nurse to please make a note to say that I was only looking for a couple aleves which was correct because I had left 2 voicemails on her machine stating I didn't want any more narcotics just a fewextra naproxens a day if I could but when they stated I couldn't taken the naproxen I agreed to the tramadol but didn't think I was breaking a law as long as the doctor was told about the other oxycodone I was on.I am scared now wondering if I could be charged with doctor shopping and I didn't think I was doing wrong.If they didn't fill the prescription could I possibly just of been told what I needed to do or could I still be in trouble for this.I was not thinking I was doing wrong and even though I had a pain contract I had received pain meds from another doctor after the surgery so I was thinking that as long as the other doctor knew of the other med I was on that I was okay.I now realize that I have made a mistake by almost reiving another pain med from another doctor and I was wondering what could possibly happen.I know I was not drug seeking just trying to see if I could take a few naproxens a day if needed and when they said I couldn't I aggred to the tramadol and didn't realize I couldn't do that with my pain contract.I am wondering could I be charged with something for this.I was not aware that I coulnt do this.What is the charges for a first offence in Arkansas.I defintly didn't receive any narcotics from another doctor sinc Walmart pharmacy told them they couldn't percribe me any meds but since I didn't tell them about the pain contract because I thought they already knew since I was on the oxycodone what could happen to me.I didn't know I was supposed to tell them of the pain contract. and assume the doctor alrady knew I was going to a pain mangenment doctor

Last week I got a prescription of phentermine ( a stimulant

Last week I got a prescription of phentermine ( a stimulant for weight loss) from a weight loss clinic on Tuesday. It was for 7 days. On Friday I decided to go to my family physician to ask her for the same drug and to not go again to the weight loss clinic since the phentermine at the weight loss clinic is so expensive, more than It should .I decided to still go today go the weight loss clinic for the support and the b12 shot and I told one of the office staff that I already have phentermine from my family physician . She didn't make much of it and I didn't mention it to the doctor. the doctor still gave me a prescription of phentermine. Then later on he found out my Family doctor gave me that already and he called me and I returned his prescription. I did not know that this is controlled substance and you are not supposed to get it from various physicians.I did return the prescription back to him as soon as he called me and I even returned the remaining pills from the last week's prescription.Do you think that I am ok? Did I do the right thing by returning it? He said that this is a felony and is serious and I said I am sorry I did not know and I returned everything to him. I didn't even fill the prescription from my family doctor and I plan on not doing that because the drug has so many side effects...

Ive been working for a dr for the past year and over the course

I've been working for a dr for the past year and over the course of a year he would have me fill prescriptions for him. Sometimes in my own name and some in other names. I voiced my concern to him several times that I was afraid of doing this so much and he assured me every time that I was doing nothing wrong. Since then I have found out that his house and everything he owns has been seized by the it's bc he hasn't paid taxes since 1996. He also has several malpractice suits against him. He's been under a lot of heat lately and he's claiming I forged the prescriptions. I'm scared to death and don't know what to do. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, brandy

I am asking for advise as my sister is an alcoholic, functional,

I am asking for advise as my sister is an alcoholic, functional, as they call it. A bit back she took my Drivers License, as I was recovering from back surgery and I gave her my credit card to pay for some things I needed. I keep a copy of my medical records, just the ones from my fracture to my back and basically my family knows where they are. She had an inside friend at a pain clinic that only accepts cash. The "friend" a nurse, helped her get in with my records and as we favor a lot they didn't even bother to look at my Drivers Licence. She got Pain Medications under my name, paid the physician cash or credit card which was in my name as well, she is a signer in case of emergency. I was given a report showing on 3/23/13 and 5/3/13 she filled 240 hydrocodones and 84 valium. My pain phsician pulled up the information on me. I live in Arkansas and I do not know the law here but my physician is giving me until the end of this week to clear up my name. He said it's just like cleaning up identity theft with credit. It is in no way the same as neither happen over night. My physician has the PMP software that he just received and the medication came up with my information. I was told to go to the pharmacy and get a copy of the log the patients sign. I did that and the pharmacist, upon showing my identification, said, "that is absolutely not you that dropped and picked those up." She also copied the sign in log...definately not my signature. That wasn't good enough once I got back. Now he wants the prescriptions to be put in her name by the physician and the pharmacy change the information to hers. No way in the world would any physician take responsibility for writing a prescription and then upon knowing it was not the patient in the chart, simply rewrite it in her name. My sister, as I said, is an Alcoholic and has 3 children of her own. She has the alcohol problem and in no way will she stand up for me and say, "Yes I did this to her." I don't know where to turn for help. As a note this pain clinic has had like 6 physicians and staff changes in the past year and a half so they are not stable and probably wouldn't know if it was me or her if I walked in the office which was exactly my intent. I even ask if I should just simply go to the DEA and let them know what's going on but I fear for my sister as well as myself. I have a 9 year old Autistic son that very much needs me. I shouldn't but I do with three children and no child support. HELP PLEASE!!! Any advise would be appreciated. Thank you, Sandy.

A prescription controlled substance was forged in my name (by

A prescription controlled substance was forged in my name (by my wife) and filled an picked up by the same. I have never been presribed this drug (vicondin) by this doctor or any other doctor in at least 3 years. My wife is an addicted to sedatives and opiods. As soon as I discovered that she had forged prescriptions in my name her family and I immediately intervened and put in Detox within 48hrs. Do I need to do anything else to protect myself (and as a result my children) from this activity? Do I need to report this to the authorities (and who?) to not be considered and 'accessory to the fact'. There is also fraud against my employers insurance company (she filled the prescriptions through our insurance company)? I am trying to hold our marriage together but I want to abide by the law in every sense. Please help.
