Yup, although you might want to make sure and wait for someone else to confirm it as I am on the fence. Better yet, why don't you give a call to the Medifast guys because they can give you an answer better...
We have a problem in our area with the E.R.s. They act like everyone who isn't spewing blood at a high rate is just there for "drugs". They even treated my 74 year old mother like she was an addict when she had to go the emergency room for a vertigo attack. She was severely questioned about her medications (hormones are all she takes, except for the vertigo meds.) Her doctor now makes sure she keeps some things, such as antibiotics and meds for a vertigo attack, on hand to.
Having to go to the emergency room when the office isn't open..
It is becoming an increasing problem. Most folks I know are afraid to go to the e.r. unless they are in so much pain they are afraid they are actually dying. It does not seem to matter what your doctor has ordered. That seems to have no connection to the people in the e.r. Our local hospital even tried to have my diabetic cousin committed to a mental institution when her sugar went over 800 and she went psychotic.
(Once her sugar was down she was fine.).

You feel better soon!!!....take care ...and all are here for support.....
Mia - before I reply, I've said it before I know but your baby is BEAUTIFUL, an angel, surely????.
I have fought this problem all my life. In the UK things have got a little better, but even at the moment I've just had the same thing from my.
(Not my doctor thank God, but his colleagues make me feel like a sad little junkie all the time).
Things I have found that help: Can you keep a record of when you take pain relief and why. Keep a journal for maybe two months to show you are in control..
I believe it is the greatest scandal we face. To be left in pain and misery is the thing most likely to break us..
I won't list natural painkillers - if things are bad you might as well try handstands for all the good they do..
Try to be very intelligent in your explanations and concise. ER are stupidly busy and don't really listen..
What painkillers do you prefer to take? Have you tried others, have you ever had a referral to a pain clinic? In the UK, if the pain clinic set up a regime it is pretty much written in stone and no-one questions it..
Good luck. You are strong and brave and don't let ANYONE without IBD tell you differently - what do they know?????.
Do you have a sympathetic doctor who will write you a letter explaining your problems and what pain relief you need in acute situations? Bowel disease is very mis-understood..
Sorry, I do go on when I'm cross for someone, but basically:.
1. Try to get a letter explaining what you need so that you have it to hand when you need it.
2. Always take a repeat prescription with you to show when you were last prescribed something.
3. Take any evidence with you you can to show your condition.
4. Keep a journal.
I have all of this in a little bag in case I have to go to ER in a hurry..
I have Dilaudid for pain for my crohns and I only take it for pain, and a bottle of 40 pills can take me 6 months to take it so I dont know why they call me that I dont even take it every day and they dont know me so why judged people like that......:(..
Hey hun.so sorry to hear you're feeln down. hang in there. people are cruel, even in the medical field. I also often have this problem when having a flare and needing pain killers. they ask me over and over how bad the pain is and then give me so little I dont notice it. then when I mention I did'nt notice it they act like i'm being a baby and need to toughen up.
You know your body and pain best..take care of yourself!!..
My emergency room is differentwhen I'm in there for Crohn's, they immediately hook me up to an IV of.
My GI, however, refuses to give me anything for pain, so I'm on my own. I rarely go to the ER unless I'm going to pass out from the pain I hate the wait in the waiting room and the expense. I feel like my tolerance for pain has increased and I've almost gotten used to this constant state of feeling horrible. It's a sad reality what we have to face.....
I also try to.
From the ER. If you do have to go, it might be a good idea to take all of your meds in origonal bottles, with you. That way they can see when your Rx was filled, just don't let them take your bottles! I.
That you are feeling better now...
Yes now I will.
For the ER I hate the ER, but when my pain gets worse in the night I dont know what to do or even for my migraine there not going to treat me:(..
