Customer Question
2000 herniated disc. prescribed...

2000 herniated disc. prescribed hydrocodone. 2001 I no longer wanted to take it...so I enrollled in 21 day rehab and did not take it again. I am an RN and was around many opioids and never had a craving for them. my back started to really give me pain around 2013. When my dr. prescribed tramadol it was not considered a controlled substance but since it's status has changed. the orders on the bottle said take1-2 q 4 hrs prn pain and he would give me 90 pills that would last 11 0r 12 days on average.. it did not say cannot be refilled or you can only take so many per day just 1-2 q 4 hrs prn pain. New pharmacist from Hy Vee came and told my Dr I was getting them early and there was not one time I got them early. he go paranoid and stopped prescribing. my husband had to go get some for a taper down for safety concerns. now all the restrictions on opioids are preventing me from getting tramadol. I have had arthritis form under the L and S dics had several epidurals and seen two different pain specialist

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
why can't I continue with tramadol and who or where do I go to prove I was not getting them early. Did you think I was non compliant?
Doctor: DrRussMD, Board Certified Physician replied 8 months ago

These are questions your doctor has to answer for you.

Have you tried getting a different doctor, more of a specialist?

Pain management? More willing to prescribe this?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
