Help. I have been on this med for 16 years. When my original doc retired, my PC took this prescription over. Now he is retiring and I asked my GI doc, who I have used for about a year, if she would take the prescription over. I did this through their portal. I get this message back that says “Recommend you find a new doctor.” Wow. I was not sure if I was being dumped or just being told that she would not prescribe that and, if I wanted it, to find a new doc. I sent back and asked if she knew of any alternative meds and/or a doc. Kinda panicked right now.
Does anyone use a doc in the greater Seattle area that prescribes tincture of opium? Does anyone who has been cut off from this have an idea for alternatives? I had to quit using Imodium as it sucked all the moisture out of my body and constipated me horribly.
