If I need prescription pain meds asap, where do I go?
What’s my best move?
Assume that I live in the U.S. and have pretty much no money or health insurance – as that is the case. :D Where do I find a doctor that will actually write me a script, without thinking I’m going to abuse these analgesics? They don’t write these sort of prescriptions at my school. Any advice or tips would be deemed quite helpful.
I have osteoarthritis of the right wrist, which has never been this bad before in my life. I’ve made it 6 years without the good stuff, I’m a fairly tough fellow but screaming in agony may happen imminently. Opiates &/or their synthetics would seem necessary. This will improve my quality of life immeasurably.
What to do, what to do?
