I have a question that I hope most of you will have some type of input for. I am actually a nurse, and I'm still not sure how to aproach my doc about my pain meds. I think I'm a little nervous because I have seen doctors label patients as "drug seekers" and "addicts", when I have really talked to the paient and can see they are in pain(not to say there aren't true abusers out there). My new MD has had no problem with giving me pain meds, but I take 2-3 five milligram Vicodin a day, and my doc only prescribes me 20 at a time. I worry that I will get labeled at his office if I call for a refill once a week when I need more meds, but I also worry what he will think if I ask him to prescribe me a greater quantity of pills. How do you guys deal with this issue with your doctor???
