How can I ask my doctor for different meds without sounding like an addict?

Recommended Posts

I think it's important to:


1. Go in being clear about the symptoms or side effects behind the trade.

2. Be able to listen to what the doctor says.

3. Explain why this is not a addiction issue and be ready to talk about any addictive past you have that might factor into your docs decision.


If you acknowledge that you fear being labelled as such but you do have a reason for asking and you are open to his assessment, that will look like the responsible patient doctor interaction your doc should be after. If your reasons are legit, you have nothing to fear, as long as you are honest.
