  5. What are the withdrawl symptoms of oxycodone?
Asked: 2018-07-28 08:23:04
Okay, I’ve got kind of a unique situation. My doctor was arrested last week because he was, apparently, selling people prescriptions for cash. I had no idea he was doing this, and he’d always treated me like a legitimate patient. Well, I’ve been on oxycodone through him for almost 3 years. No other doctor will prescribe me my medication because they think that he was only working with people that abused it. I have a chronic immune condition, and a real diagnosis to go with it. I’m not sure how all do without my medication, but I’m worried about the withdrawals. What am i facing?

I’ve heard of that happening before. You may need to actually go see a treatment center and ask them about methadone or something that can help you go off of your medication safely. Take your medical charts, and take a proof of your diagnosis. Obviously, you’re going to have to deal with some withdrawal symptoms and these can include a really upset stomach, headaches, and all of the crummy feelings that come with the flu. I’m sorry you’re dealing with this, it sounds like an awful situation.

Most of the time, doctors are suspicious because they have a reason. Make sure that you have access to your medical records that prove your diagnosis, and try to get a recommendation from another doctor that you trust. You may have to go on nonnarcotic painkillers to help you get through this time, but it could be a blessing in disguise. You’ll probably feel like you cut a really bad cold and get achy and sick for a few days. Stay close to home and keep a trashcan next to the bed. You’ll feel better in about a week.
