I want to start by saying I never call my PM unless I see no other way. Over the past two months I have been trying to cut my meds down to as close to 90MME as possible. They have for years given me 12 Dilaudid pills so that When I got into a bad pain cycle I had something stronger to take instead of going to the ER. So last visit she gave me 3 pills and wrote 10 days worth. I filled those 10 days ago and used those three at the beginning of last week. I am in another one and have been for 3 days. The PA told me that if I got into trouble to call the office. I called this morning at 8:04am and here it is 2:00PM and I have heard nothing! I tried to get across how sick I am but just so much you can do over the phone. All I am asking for is 3 additional pills and I do have a visit on Friday.
Here is the question. How long do you give your PM before you make a second call? I don't want to be a nuisance but am really sick.
Thank you in advance for any guidance you can offer.
