Today I feel the pain from having 5 teeth removed and it is awful! Lucky I have some Percocet already because I would be calling the dentist office this morning asking for some more. I don't know how they think 10 pills was enough when I definitely going to have to take not one but 2 every 4 hrs cause 1 don't do it. The DAMN GOVERNMENT PEOPLE AND ITS RESTRICTIONS! I wonder if they pay attention to the suicide rate of people who couldn't live in pain at anymore and they thought death was there only way out. I know from experience that I felt this way so many times just waiting fighting for health insurance.
Pained lady I think you should call the dentist office anyways it's none of their business what you have in reserve so keep it in reserve they are responsible for dealing with the pain you are in right now. If you use your reserve then they're going to continue to think that what they prescribed to you was enough and it just isn't and I agree with you as far as tracking the suicides I said this in another post on here the government came out with their big epidemic scare telling us there's a hundred deaths a year from overdoses number one I don't believe this is a big number I know that sounds harsh but they're not telling us how many of those are from liver failure from the acetaminophen they put in it. And number two I looked up how many deaths there are in the United States a day from alcohol, there are 241 deaths from alcohol a day And over 6800 deaths that are attributable to alcohol a day in the United States. To me that's a lot more scary a number than 100. And that's from something you can buy legally in any store so what the hell are they doing putting us through the agonizing pain we live with over opiates I think we should be able to buy them over the counter in any store we are grown-ups we've got our big girl pants on why not let us make the decision and see what happens. People don't remember that you used to be able to buy Codeine in any drug store and up until 1968 you could buy LSD pretty much anywhere. Where are the stats on LSD deaths prior to 1968 and after 1968 I think they're afraid to let us know sorry I got off the subject but I would definitely call your dentist and demand that they deal with the pain you are in due to their surgery.
I agree with BrokenBlossems ecpecially on the Suicide rate of the people who can't cope in the pain anymore. I would ring the dentist and tell them anyway, I hope your not in too much pain I will be thinking of you💕
@Painedlady. I completely understand. The government is so messed up. They only take care of there own. No in my opinion they don't care how many people takes there life. They label it as depression but nobody cares why they was depressed. Sorry I can go on about this one as I lost 2 loved ones over this. May they R.I.P. anyways. Sending preys your way. Don't give up. Stay strong.
We are all here for you. PM anytime . Remember you are not alone . 💓💓💓💓
Thank you guys, I will call the dentist and tell them I'm in extreme pain and 10 pills is just not enough. What crazy is the write the scripts saying every 4 to 6 hrs, that means if I take every 4 hrs then I have used over half the pills in one day. And I'm not a rapid healer, I don't know if it's the Sjögren's or what but it takes time for my body to heal a wound or a cut etc. But y'all are right I shouldn't have to use what I have in reserve. Hugs to you guys 💜
I was told that the dentist will not write more pain meds and that I would have to be seen. And there were no notes saying whether or not he put stitches in my gums. But I feel something up in my gum like it's a piece of bone or something.
@Painedlady. I'm so sorry to hear this. They are all messed up in the heads . Anyways .... 😢 It might be just you healing but .. if it continues or gets worse, my advice is to go to the .E.R or even back to the dentist . Get it checked out anyway you can. Best of Luck. Sending healing prayers your way 😊😊💕💕
I'm not saying don't call or don't be seen just this is what happened to me:
I was on lortab for chronic pain..fine Dentist now says oh here you had tooth pulled here's vicodine... Thinking tooth hurts take the 5... save my pain pills for when I need those... RIGHT: to you and me we are being responsible, and that makes sense
To THEM! I was seeking more drugs to sell or take extra..whatever it is against me... Doesn't indicate I told dentist I was getting a script..and he says thats okay..take it anyway...this was BEFORE all this paranoia (at the beginning because I was already on contract)
No apparently it wasn't ok.. I agree with BrokenBlossoms.. None of their business! But they are getting very nasty!
Any medical person can look you up and have a record of meds and who prescribed and WHERE YOU FILLED THEM!
This is just Evil!
It would be interesting to see after you go in what happens and I wouldn't say anything about other meds...what does it matter stitches or not? It's the procedure that hurts anyway!!!
Stupidity knows no boundries I guess...keep us posted..all my best!
