Caught

by Rainwatch

It had to happen and happen it did, it happened in stern reality. The law of averages, the law of probability pointed towards it happening, it was bound to happen, only a matter of time before it happened. Any man deceiving multiple doctors, pharmacists etc in pursuit of Ambien will be caught eventually, irrespective of how careful you are. I got away with it for a good ten years, then last month whilst getting Ambien as per usual in a pharmacy, the pharmacist gave me a strange look and said ” according to my records you’re registered with another doctor”. I kept a cool head, played dumb, and rejoined with ” there must be a mistake”. The pharmacist probed no further, handed over the Ambien and I left thinking will she alert the doctor whose registration had been discovered and then will he alert another doctor who I’m getting Ambien off? It seemed so farfetched I gave it a 10 percent chance of happening and put it out of my mind. Fast forward two weeks, I walk into a doctor, the family doctor, whose history with my family goes back decades, having totally forgot about the strange incident with the pharmacist, I notice a look of displeasure on his face and he says ” I’ve a big problem with you, it’s been brought to my attention you’re registered with another doctor and have been getting Ambien off him also, I can’t prescribe anymore”. The shock hit me so hard I was preternaturally calm, I didn’t offer an excuse, apology, or explanation, I said ” okay” and walked out off the office. I now thought has the second doctor been alerted and gave it a 50 percent possibly. I walked into him, exact same routine as previous doctor  ” you’ve been getting Ambien from another doctor, I don’t want you as a patient, this is illegal, all trust has been broken”.I was so shocked I just didn’t care said ” okay” and left.  My ability to obtain Ambien, and the part it plays in keeping me from suicide has been reduced considerably.

Sorry to hear you’re at this point. Don’t know how severe your insomnia is, but I’ve found doxylamine succinate (unisom) more effective than most over counter drugs when I’m feeling desperate. It won’t knock you out, but it should make you feel drowsy and have less trouble falling asleep if taken at the right time. Otherwise I find doing anything else that takes the edge off (even if it’s unhealthy/addictive) preferable to lying awake in bed. Hope you can find an alternative coping mechanism.

Alcohol and night time cough syrup mixed work for some.
