I think that you should call you Dr and tell him what happened.
He or She may be able to help you
It depends on your doctor. Some doctors won't replace them even if you didn't sign a contract. I hope your doctor will take pity on you and write you a new prescription. The problem is that some people lie about having them stolen. I hope your doctor trusts that you are telling the truth. Good luck. I feel bad for you.
I also see my Primary care for my meds and i had them stolen...they were also oxycontins..i have been seeing that same dr. for the entire length of time I have been on painkillers. she told me to a made a police report and my dr. replaced them without a problem.
she stated they were timed released oxycodone not oxycontin,
extremely different drugs oxycodone is a variant of codeine percocet a little stronger than vicodin. Oxycontin is hydromorphine completely different drugs.
actually they are more similar than you stated the chemical makeup of the 2 are identical and they are almost identical in affect oxycontin is time released where oxycodone is not. by the way to actually answer the question and not to badger the people responding the only thing that you can do is try a walk in clinic or try the e.r. and tell them you fell off a ladder but dont tell them you had a script stolen or your situation e.r.s hear these stories everyday and despies even the most honest individuals they will look at you like you are a drug addict and wont give you a thing be sure to tell them that youb used to be in a pain management and you have a high tolerance sometimes you have to fib a little because addicts lie a lot
I think you might be mistaken there Michelle. And if your doctor told you this, that doctor needs to go back to school.
That is how it should be.
This is straight wrong. One thing i never understood is how someone can make statements like this so matter-of-factly when they are in fact, so wrong. Oxycontin is a brand name for a drug made by Purdue Pharma. This drug contains "OXYcodone" and is "CONTINous" release, hence the name "Oxycontin." Hydromorphine (actually its Hyrdomorphone) as you put it, is often sold under the brand name Dilaudid, maybe you have heard of it. Think of it like this, it goes Codeine (T3s etc.)---> hyrdrocodone (Vicodine/Lortab/etc.)--->oxycodone (Percocet/Roxicodone/Oxycontin). And similiarly, Morphine (MS-Contin/etc.)---> hydromorphone (Diluadid)--->oxymorphone (Opana). I urge you, in the future, to check the facts before making senseless statement like the one here. I am not trying to belittle you but save you from possible embarrasment, and worse than that, spreading around false information (what has obv been done with you). Cheers!
If you were prescribed oxycodone, you are made sign an agreement stating that you will keep these drugs locked up. Therefore you are totally responsible for these pills. I know because I had to sign one. They are not replaceable.
We'll actually I did'nt have to sign anything. I am not seeing a "Pain Managment" specialist, I see my regular physician until I can afford health insurance. He has all my MRI reports and all of my records from the accidents I've been in because I have used his office since I was born. Thank you for your response though =)
You are a little harsh don't you think, its bad enough our doctors and pharmasists think we are drug seekers, we do not need it from you.
I have had prescriptions of oxycodone before and never signed a CONTRACT, never told to lock them up etc...
My answer to the first message would be to go to a local Emergency Room, explain your situation, they cannot prescribe the oxycodone that was stolen but perhaps a variant like norco 10/325, they are extremely similar, they will only prescribe enough for the weekend and your regular doctor will not rewrite the script but possibly give you a variant in a smaller quantity and you will need to refill more than once a month to prevent it from happening again.
It is sad if your family took them, in the future I would recommend locking them up for your own safety.....
