I am 83 and have been on Vicodin for
About 10 years. 3 10/325 most days are enough to help me with my pain issues. My doctor wants it to bei only 3 a day. Period. I have severe arthritis. Heart problems also. This Opioid Crises
Is making my doctor unreasonable.

Will I be charged for this question?
Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

I am not sure. Please contact customer service and they should have that information available. I am a physician on this side and can only address medicine related questions. Hopefully they can assist you.

The pharmacist will refill almost a week early. That would be enough for the days I need more than three. 6 extra days would give 18 more. Is there a problem with that?
Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

I don't see a problem with that. If the pharmacist is able to refill it early then you can continue taking it at 3+ per day if needed.

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
