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! ;)

Gently and slowly is the word from therapist on four exercises for home therapy. His other words were not encouraging namely my neck is worse now than a year ago. Secondly he does not think a TENS unit or traction would do any good and most likely injure me further. That leaves slowly and gingerly on minimal therapy and maybe massage. Outlook isn’t good on any other surgery as that will only...
It was 9 1/2 pounds. Heavy. I put it in pan upside down. Two hours later I notice it.I turned it right side up. But will it take longer to cook now?
