New pain medication laws dictating to doctors that they cannot prescribe anything equivalent 120 mg of morphine or higher a day per patient
13 Replies RSS
I was told Friday by my Pain Management Doctor at my monthly appointment that the DEA was implementing a new law dictating to doctors on how much pain medication they could prescribe per patient per day. It could be equal to no more than 120 mg of Morphine per day per patient and they had to comply within 3 months for all of their patients. I am trying to find out as much information on this as possible. I don't know if my Pain Management Doctor is stating fact or if he is just running scared and if he is stating fact, I don't know if this is federal or state (Alabama) mandated. I spoke directly with the Southeastern division of the DEA in Atlanta this morning and they are not aware of any law of this nature coming into effect and I also contacted another pain clinic locally tha...

Dilemma with 2 narcotic scripts from 2 doctors
139 Replies RSS
Hi all. I have intractable pelvic RSD, peripheral neuropathy, lumbar facet spondylosis. I live in California and am about to have to change insurances at the end of this month. The new insurance has ridiculously high Rx prices. I go to a PM for all my pain meds, but my primary dr has in the past managed them for me. My question is if anyone knows if I get an Rx for the 60mg Oxycontin twice a day like usual from my PM and then my primary to write a script for 40mg 3 times a day and then I can go to 2 totally different pharmacies and fill one with my insurance and the other at another pharmacy and pay with cash, will that flag the DEA and cause my PM to get a notification of "Doctor shopping"? I am just trying to have enough meds to get me through an extra month until my husbands ...

side effects of Udiliv 300 and cremadiet
20 Replies RSS
recently i was diagnoised with fatty liver and gall stones. The doctor prescribed Udiviliv 300 (1 in morning and one at night, after meals) and Cremadiet (2 spoons at bedtime). i am not sure whether its because of the medicines but i have started experiencing chest pain and pain in my throat and nose. Please advise? ## Have you contacted your doctor, yet? Chest pain is not something you should ignore, you should report it to your doctor immediately, so they can check and determine if it is indeed caused by a medication or if it is something more serious. Udiliv contains the active ingredient Ursodiol, it is a bile acid that is frequently used to help dissolve gall stones.

drs who prescribe pain medications roswell ga
17 Replies RSS
Does anyone know a Dr in Roswell ga who will prescribe pain mediciation and Xanax? ## Hello, Nannyq! How are you? I'm sorry that you're in pain. However, due to the new regulations that were set forth by the DEA last year, you'll need to see specialists, if you require such medications on a long-term ongoing basis, a general practitioner won't be able to prescribe them for you. That also means most doctor's won't prescribe both, you'd need to see a pain management specialist and a psychiatrist for the Xanax. The FDA lists Xanax as a benzodiazepine that is most commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. It carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Can anyone recommend ...

Can Xarelto cause gas / flatulence?
Post a Reply
I began taking Xarelto again for a few weeks after my second incident of DVT and PE. Ever since I started taking it this time, I have noticed an increase in flatulence. Since this medication is the only thing that has changed in my life, besides the blood clots themselves, I am suspicious of it. Has anyone else experienced this and can simply taking gas medication take care of it. This has been a very embarrassing problem to have.

Suboxone Doctors In Indiana Who Accept Medicaid
141 Replies RSS
need a doctor who prescibs suboxins i am on medicaid ## While I'm not aware of which doctors accept medicaid, I can provide you with links to help you locate specific pain management doctors within your local area. You'd inevitably have to ask the receptionist though if the doctor accepts medicaid or any other type of insurance that you might have. All you have to do is input your city or zip code for narrowed results: {link removed because site no longer exists} You can give this other page a try too if you come up with different results for some reason or another: wellness.com/find/pain%20management%20specialist I hope this helps! ## im 26 and dying from my drug addiction but only have indiana medicade and need help bad ## yes bad ## Hello, Are you still in need of information...

is it okay to chew a fentanyl 50mg pain patch
508 Replies RSS
ive been given fentanyl 50mg pain patches an i was just wondering if its okay to cut one in half an chew on it? ## I would say definitely NOT - The Fentanyl transdermal patch is supposed to be absorbed by the body gradually. If you were to chew on it you would be taking a very dangerous risk - this is a very strong medication! Chewing on it would essentially release 3 days worth of of a narcotic into your body which is more powerful than morphine! Please post back with any other thoughts you have about this and please be safe! ## Obviously, chewing the patch is unsafe, but again...people are going to chew them. You can chew em as long as you take only small portions at a time. Just moderate yourself and don't overdue it. ## Keep in mind that fentanyl patches are close to 80 TIMES mo...
