i left a message with my doctor about wanting to change to oycotin 20 three times daily, rather then oycodone 15 four times a day, so i will have less ups and downs and have pain control all night, someone said that my doc might think i;m abuseing the medication, i know the meds cause i;m a nurse, do you think i messed up by asking for specific meds, i;ve done that before, and she was okay with it, cause the pharmasist told me the dose she had me on was so small 5mg.that most phamsceies do not carry that does, so she chanced it, not i'm worried she's going to take this wrong, and if she does, what are my rights as a patient, who is disabiled from chronic pain, do i have a right to pain control?in this country are there laws for folks who have chornic pain, do be treated to make their life easier, or are we just without rights?it's not like i'm dyeing of cancer, but i know that even cancer patients ,it's up to the nurse in nurseing homes, to decide to give the pain medication, i think thats cruel, wonder if the nurse is an just doesn't feel like going out of her way,i've come in and patients would be releived, telling me they knew that there night would be easier, cause i always medicated them for pain. so do people who have fibro, and other stuff, that doesn't put up red flags for severe pain, have rights??
