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...
