Doctor's don't usually jump from Tramadol
. More than likely, if she's been on Tramadol, then the next thing she'd try is Hydrocodone
, which is the "bottom" tier of the narcotic levels/strengths. Also, within the Hydrocodone family, they have a lot of variances and strengths that would probably be tried before jmping onto Oxy. There's always the chance he would, but it might make him wonder why she's asking for that specifically (bc of all the abuse going on with the drug
). if she got one of the stronger Hydro's (Norco 10/325-660) that might not raise a red flag to the doctor.
anyways, becareful about how she approaches this with the doctor. if he suspects it's for recreational and abuse then he won't prescribe it at all and might even make the choice to not treat her anymore. i work as a pharm tech and we get calls all the time of doctor's cancelling a peron's refill orders (for Hydro bc it's the only narcotic that is allowed to have reflls bc it's Schedule III) bc of them abusing it. Then she'd be in a world of hurt. So be safe and think about how a doctor would interpret jumping from Tramadol to Oxy, specifically.
