Ok, so I am extremely upset right now. I received an RX for vicoden 2 1/2-3 months ago with 3 refills...but the pharmacy messed up and I didnt get my refills. So fine. I call the Dr. because after the 2 or 3 periods Ive had, I am running low on it and wanted a refill. This Dr. has been giving me this RX for 8 years no troubles, and we had open communication about it every time, I was so honest and clear, did everything by the book. So, he just called me and told me he would never give me vicoden again, and in fact i need to enroll in a program. I was like "what do you mean?" He said, that vicoden is dangerous (duh), and he thinks (after 8 freakin years of trusting me and helping me), that I am abusing it! I got really hurt by that and said, I do not appreciate you calling me a drug addict, and he said "no, im not calling you a drug addict, but you're abusing this drug." Isnt that essentially what a drug addict is-someone who abuses drugs? I am beside myself upset. I am embarrassed and ashamed, and scared. I stayed as cordial as possible with him, but at the end I just said bye. I am mortified! I fucking wish so much that advil or other OTC's helped me even a little, but they dont and never did even as a teenager! I would have a hysterectomy but theres too much evidence that shows that it can come back especially stage 3 and 4, and I have 4. Im writing this because I know that some of you may understand. I know that a lot you rely on these meds as well and have been accused by your Dr's of this too, though Im not sure if any Dr's ever told you to go to a program. WTF??!! Ive known this Dr for 8 years! He couldve just said no. That wouldve been fine with me, but to flat out accuse me, after hes been giving me this for 8 years is stupid on his part! I am beyond upset. Its not even that I dont know how im gonna get my RX, its how embarrassed and ashamed I feel. There was no use trying to explain anything to him, because when i did, he just repeated that he would not prescribe it to me!!?? I wasnt asking for it again, my God! I was trying to explain the situation hes known for 8 years. I understood he didnt want to give me the meds, and ill have to figure something out. I mean it wouldve been a lot more respectful if he just said he wasnt comfortable instead of literally telling me I had to go to a program, even though i dont need one; bottom line-I have fucking endometriosis! And I cant move during my period! And if I couldnt numb the pain, I would throw up and pass out. How mortifying! Also I know he didnt come up with this conclusion himself, since hes been giving me this for 8 years, another Dr. made him uncomfortable; long story. But honestly, Fuck him for telling me to enroll in a program. I dont want this. But right now, I have no other freakin choice. I will not suffer, I cannot suffer! Sorry so long and rambling, and the language, I see no one curses too much, but I am so upset!
