Hello, Cindy! How are you?

Unfortunately, the only one that can answer that for you, with any certainty, would be your doctor. The rest of can only guess, it might just be due to them trying to more closely monitor patients, as requested by the DEA last year, or there may be some other reason.

According to the FDA, this is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

Did they mention anything at your last appointment?

Our State recently enacted very very strict prescription guidelines because of the horrible crippling opioid crisis in our State. More people are dying from OD's than traffic accidents for the first time EVER here. Even with the Narcon, OD patients are being revived 2-3 times a weekend, or there would be even more deaths. IOW, the docs are really being watched for prescriptions. A sprained ankle doesn't get you an automatic pain killer anymore- you get Tylenol and sent on your way.
