I was so surprised yesterday..I called my doctor and told them that I had tried several doses of oxycontin, and it was making me feel sicker than ever. So I asked if I could just have my lortab prescription reinstated. ( it was "automatically" discontinued the day I picked up the oxycontin prescription). Anyway, when I called the doctor ,( talked to his nurse) I was told to bring the remaining oxycontin, and when "she had them in her hand" she would give me the new prescription for Lortabs. I have never heard of this before . We are in KY, and had been for years in WI..so maybe it is state difference. It just seemed odd that it needed to be "turned in". I didn't even know what to say when the nurse told me that..although since I have thought I want her to SHOW me her flushing them!LOL I dont' want HER to be keeping them either! Just curious if anyone else has had this occur? It just seemed so odd to me. I DO understand that oxycontin is a serious drug...and that they have concerns about abuse etc. And I now have about 1/2 a scrip of lortab, and most of the scrip of oxy...but GEEZ..I have to turn it in???? It seemed so odd to me!
