If you don't have the...

Hello Doctor. I am writing not because of myself, but because of my sister who I am really worried about. She was involved in a car accident in January of 2010 and has had 3 back surgeries due to this. She has been taking oxycodone and or vicodin every since. She just found out she is pregnant. She doesn t know what to do. She is extremely happy but worried about the pain pills. She wants to try to taper off of them, but I read that could be dangerous for the fetus. Do you recommend her getting on suboxone which I read can be dangerous as well or subutex which I ve read can be safe. We definitely don t want to go the methadone route for obvious reasons. Any help and suggestions will be greatly appreciated. She is 37 years old and is worried about her age as well. Thank you Doctor and look forward to hearing from you. David

My doc is prescribing Elavil for pain I am experiencing in the vulva area. I am wondering if that works for pain such as this? Wasn t sure why an anti depressant was being used? I am currently on Oxycodone for the pain, which works, but I do not want to stay on this drug any longer than necessary.

I am prescribed 2 7.5 oxycodone a day. I didn t take any the last couple of days because I knew I would be having a couple of drinks and didn t want to mix anything. I am having a urine test tomorrow morning at 8:00 AM. If I take one 7.5 pill will it show up in a urine test? What time should I take it? Should it be the night before (tonight) or 4 hours before the test? Thanks.

I submitted to a urinalysis today at my pain management doctors office, and I tested positive for morphine. I do not take morphine, but I am prescribed oxycodone. Could this be the reason I did not pass the test? Also, I am not the first patient at this clinic to have this problem. Five other people I know that do not take morphine tested positive last week and when the results came back, it showed they had not taken any morphine. I just want to know if oxycodone could be the reason the test said I took morphine or if it is a faulty test?
