Medicine question

Oct 06, 2016 3:50 PM

So I've got some extra mobic from an past dr appointment. Dr told me to only take it for a week. Thst been months ago. Today my pain is heading to redline. Would be a bad look if I call and ask the Dr if I can take the mobic? I mean would he have expected me to toss it after the last time. ?

I'm not sure I'd call him. I have meds that I've held on to, and my PCP knows it. I take it when I need to.

That's what I was thinking too. Plus even though he told me to take it from a week.he still gave me a full 30 script.

Yep, exactly. My surgeon have me a huge bottle of pain liquid with my stomach surgery but I haven't used a quarter of the bottle. Not throwing it away until it's bad... If it's still here. I have used it on bad flare days, and after the neck surgery.
