I have a serious problem. My dr. had two patients start dr. shopping and has decided it is too big of a pain in his butt to continue prescribing, even though I have gotten MRIs and Xrays to prove my problems. I have over a half a dozen herniated discs in my low back, along with degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, scoliosis and arthritis in my facet joints. I am currently on5 30mg oxycodone a day for breakthrough and 60mg of methadone for my long lasting meds. I REALLY need a doctor in the Denver, CO area who will not judge me because of my age, thinking I'm just some drug seeker as I TRULY need my meds to function. I am even being placed on disability until I can get my back healed because if something doesn't change I will be in big time pain for the rest of my life. If ANYONE knows of a good doctor that prescribes strong meds willingly in the Denver area please email me and let me know. I am in desperate need of help as I am going to be SCREWED if I cannot find a good doctor. SOMEONE please help me with a doctor!!!!!

@Kay...Medicaid will cover FOUR oxy IRs a day.

Thx to all of you who reached out to help. I will answer your questions tomorrow but I wanted to put Kay at ease about Medicaid.

Godspeed

Wanted to add that I think the new pharmacy thing is going to work great for everyone. They are very nice, it's in a nice office complex, very private.

My only concern would be for those of you who have to pay cash for your meds.

Went to CPR today and picked my prescriptions up from the office of the new pharmacy. The first time sucks and was a hassle, but now that it's set up it will be easy. They also told me once there are more people in the Springs area that the courier will start going out there (which she claimed shouldn't be long since they are just getting set up)

As far as the 3 oxy a day thing? I get 4 Oxy IR a day (+ MS Contin) and she (the doctor) never said anything about reducing the # of them.

At least I can calm down now knowing that I can fill at my pharmacy this month since it will be day 29 for me. I thought I would end up without for a day or two.

I just called Amanda and she said the plan is to get as many people as possible on the mail in one because the pharmacy works closely with the DEA and causes less problems for CPR and puts less risk on them if people are filling early. She said it depends per person this month but the DEA is trying to get everyone down to 3 BR meds a day and our appointments will be like 3 days early so that there is ample time for us to get our meds...... So I REALLY hope it works.....

That is weird because Amanda didn't schedule me for an earlier day so it must have changed after my appointment. So I know I am not the only one who will have to fill at their normal pharmacy this month and start mail order thing next month. I don't see why cpr would be shut down they are not even close to being a pill mill. So what if they have had different docs in there most were pa's they are doing nothing wrong. We have to do ua's every month and jump through hoops just like all other pain management clinics. This country is going to crap pretty soon we won't be able to get any medical care.

Tammy 2, when I came last month they told me everyone is starting the mail pharmacy this month and schedule appointments few days earlier. What worries me is I take demerol shots and only one pharmacy in the state carries it .Now they won't fill the script because they think this place is a pill mill like Florida .The pharmacist warned me that Dea was gonna shut them down soon .They have had five docs in a short time .

@Wendy, thank you for Unified info w/ Medicade...do you know anything about them?
And @rainbowflowers...do you not remember me from here? I was the one who told you Dr Ryan was at Kaiser when he left. I'm really happy you had a good experience with your new doc and hopefully found a new place for good!!!..but you aren't on oxy ER & IR right? Cause that's what I've been on for 10+ years. I'm not a seeker, we spoke in this thread for awhile few months before Dr Ryan left and Theresa took over. I'm always on here, just not a CPR patient and seems like that's what most posts are about...shruggg :)

Anyway, to everyone, my pharmacist told me Medicade wouldn't cover more than 4 oxy/day, not 3. Is she wrong? Does anyone know for sure if it's 3 or 4??? ...I'm gonna call her and ask again, I'm on 4 so I thought I was good but now if it's 3 like it says here I don't know... can u pay cash for extra? Would suck to be paying more cash again! Medicade is 1st insurance I've had in years! Too "diseased" and "pre-determined conditioned" for any insurance company to touch me!

As always, best to yall :) and thanks!

I was taking oxycodone 30mg 5x daily because I didn't have insurance and the money for ER pain relief. A friend just explained that Fentanyl patches are a more powerful drug than the Opana ER that I just started on. I don't know what your pain is caused by, so I don't know if you have "good" and "bad" days. Is "changing up" your medication to perhaps increase the effectiveness as option for you? In my case "changing up" doesn't work so well, I have a difficult time adjusting to any changes AT ALL !! So change just sends my pain out of control.

I started on Opana ER 20mg in May with oxycodone 10 mg for breakthrough pain. I believe Opana ER is also available in 30mg. Have you tried either of these? How are the patches working for you?

MAC686,
No the pills are not "all the same". True they are approved by the FDA or they couldn't be sold legally, but each manufacturer has a patent on their formula. The formula can be "similar" but not the "same". No other company can market "the same" pill when there is a patent or they are violating the law. The producers change the filler/buffer used, dye color, amount of the actual drug, so that they are in compliance with the law.

The FDA also allows a "fudge factor" in the effectiveness of each medication made. This "fudge factor" isn't only allowed for pain medications, it's also allowed in heart, diabetes, etc. meds. I have heard that this "fudge factor" can be up to 20% less effective and still be legal (I think 20% may be a little high) but five different pharmacies have explained that there is up to a legal 12% "fudge factor" that is common for pain medications.
Information is also available, showing that the filler/buffer used in some of the pain medications is very ineffective in transmitting the actual pain reliever to your central nervous system, resulting in it being ineffective for relieving pain.

My appointment will be and has always been on day 29. But I haven't heard from anyone else who has talked to dr. May or cpr about what their plan is for this month for some patients. If you live in the area I am guessing that you will be getting your meds through the new pharmacy and if you are out of state and your appointment is on day 29 then they might have to let you fill at your pharmacy and next month go in a couple days early. At least that would be the best way to start this but that is just a guess. Anyone know anything else yet?

Wendy.. I was told Medicaid doesn't cover the long acting oxy 80s. In addition, when they changed the formula a few years back from the OC to the OP my stomach couldn't handle it. I am currently on 5 30mg oxy and 150 mcg Fentanyl Patches. My first month with the patch after years of Morphine E/R. 2 weeks in and the jury is still out on whether these patches are helping. I am very frustrated. Has anyone heard anything new? Also.. someone asked if they would get their meds on their visit Wed..not if it's day 28. You will have to wait a day or two til it is day 20. HAS ANYONE TALKED TO DR. MAY???

Unified health is taking patients on medicade .I saw their ad , I live a block a way. However medicade has to reimburse anyone that can't be seen at pain management in their providers .As for the 3 pill a day thing call look up the Dea protocol on prescription drugs use long term .Medicade will only pay for 3 break thru meds a day period .

CO Susie,

I use Target Pharmacy, and they specifically order Qualitest or Caraco for me. They have it ready on my fill date, and they have done this for over a year for me. Have you tried them?
