Hello to all. I recently got a MRI scan and found out I have a herniated disc and I have lower back pain every so often and it bothers me alot. Its been like this for 3 months but just worsens every week slowly. I try not to wine, but now I have to. I live in florida and I heard it is easy to get prescribed Roxycodone. I been taking one m30 at night before sleep to ease the pain which I recieved from a family member and wondering if that is even illegal or if I tell them this what I been taking would they say something bad? I am going to see a Pain Management Dr. soon. I been taking a (nsaid) Meloxicam that does not work at all which I received from my neurologist. Would I get prescribed this if I tell this is what works for me? I know its a narcotic but this is all I know that works for my chronic back pain and I can sleep well at night.
not a good idea to take another persons drug. what if you ended up in hosp unconscious due to drug reaction and they have no record of the drug. if pm dr finds that youre doing that he may not treat you. i'd try tylenol until you see doc....if pain unbearable visit er....pete
