Doctor did not renew Tramadol Rx
My spine specialist suggested I use Tramadol for my pain in the lumbar due to a ruptured disc, the Rx called out for 50mg 1-2 three times a day, I guess for legl reasons he only would give 50 at a time, so every 16 days or so, this has been going on for 3 months. last week I asked the pharmacy to renew the Rx, but the doctor didn't do it, so I called the pharmacy today to ask, they suggested I call the doctor, I left a message, but no reply. I reminded the pharmacy and the doctors office about the medication having to be tapered and not stopped cold turkey, pharmacy said since it is a controlled substance they can't give me any to hold me over. I didn't take the afternoon dose, so I have one left for the morning. The good thing, I am going to my new pain doctor for imaging, so maybe I will ask him about it.
Either that or I can call my GP and at least get anti siezure meds just in case.
I imagine OldCeper will have some input on this... No I told you so's aloud! ;)

My new PCP referred to my illness in his notes for my bloodwork as "major depressive disorder, single episode, unspecified (referring to an overdose I took when I was 18 and thankfully had no lasting problems from)" which must've been in my medical records still. It struck me as strange, especially since I have a severe case of bipolar 1 and take 5 psych meds, after numerous hospitalizations. I...
