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!!!!!

Patricia... I'm in COS. All the chain pharms are open on the weekends... And Walgreen's has a couple 24 hr locations. I'm not sure where you were looking to get them filled?
I have a really great pain management team... But got in to see them through a referral after surgery. There are a few good pain management offices... And a few bad. I'm curious who your bad dr is?
A long while back, a core group of us exchanged personal email addresses and eventually, some people got to meet as a true support group.
I think there were some probkems with people meeting on other threads... And I'm not sure any personal info can be exchanged any more.
In general, please be careful trying to get pain meds filled from different drs... Make sure your drs know about each other. We have a prescription drug monitoring system in CO ... If you are filling from different drs (dr shopping), pharmacies will see that info and you will not be able to get any meds.

Thanks for your empathy. In the Carolinas. This was my 1st time here, so I NO NOTHING! Other than I went to a Emergency Care place yesterday to get 16 Vicodin! Then 4 Pharmacy's in Colorado Springs to get my 16 Vicodin filled. Most are closed on the weekends! Which is INSANE!! C.S the 2nd largest city in Colorado is a complete joke! Where else could Pharmacy's be closed for 2 DAYS a week, & stay in Business? I'm headed back to Denver, but I can't move back until I get money from my dad who died in March! Between, the A**HOLE who has cut my meds, & my personal loss, I'm in bad shape. I am attempting to understand the messages, about how some people know each other? Why you meet? Personally I am starting to consider Suicide, if I can't find any M.S.Cotton! I have felt like S*** for over a month now, & the Vicodin I took today acts completely different from the M.S. Cotton I've been on for 6 yrs! That was 300 mg, daily, which I had NO idea was such a Hugh amount until I changed cites, & doctors, & Medicaid stated it was too high. So, I went to 260 mg of M.S. Cottin which I was doing OK on. Now, he cut it to 120, & of coarse I didn't stay on that amount, & took extra everyday! Because, I had my Gallbladder taken out 1 month ago, I got the Vicodin. The doctor said he's lowering it too fast. I wont EVER enter his office again. He lowered it. I don't really care if this is too much information. It's all the exact truth. Looking for help. Where could I get it tomorrow, if I can drive back to a REAL city, Denver?

Rainbow, AMEN SISTER!!
Wendy, Went through the same deal with the pharmacy. I wrote about it in post that was erased. I suggested getting in early for your appointment so your meds with be delivered the am you need them. I had to go to the pharmacy to get my meds, waited over 45 minutes. Makes for a very long day, especially for patients that drive from far away. I had to get approval even though I had an approval right after the new rules went into effect. The approval was for six months but since the approval was given to my usual pharmacy and now we have to use just the one, it made my approval null and void. Seems to me this keeps getting more and more messy.

We are very short on Sig. for 1$million for pain patients. Please remember to verify Sig. by email. Thanks for posting the link. If I can figure out how to post the link I will post in more threads here. I definitely shared on FB. I told my son to sign and share. He has tons of FB friends.

Jo - to answer your question you are probably getting directed to this thread because you posted some messages in this discussion and so the site alerts you whenever new replies are posted here. I don't think the site is based out of Colorado, it is just this specific thread that is maintained by people from Colorado.

If you were to run a search on the site for something like 'doctors in [YOUR LOCATION]' you would be able to see if somebody has already started a discussion thread near where you live. (And you can always start your own discussion thread too if you don't find one). So if you don't want to keep getting alerts from this Colorado thread then the next time you get an email about it you can scroll to the bottom and unsubscribe from the alert. I'm on here a lot but i mostly just read the pages so I kind of know the ins and outs. Hope this helps!

I am very sorry to hear for what you're going through, Patricia. It really does seem like a game when it comes to these pain doctors or any doctor for that matter. I suppose a lot of that has to do with the fact that they are not the ones that are experiencing the pain on a daily basis such as their patients. It seems that we ,as pain patients, take one step forward and three steps back. Unfortunately, I am unable to advise on pain management doctors in Colorado due to the fact that I am not in the Colorado area but I do wonder why it automatically goes to the Colorado page every time I click on to the Meds Chat email notification. Is that because this website is based out of Colorado and mainly for people in the Colorado area or should I be going to a specific page to get to conversations that take place from folks in my particular state? I only ask because I am fairly new to this website and I could use some help myself when it comes to the same issues that you are experiencing. I want to read and learn from experiences by people located in various places but I also would like to find folks closer to home so that maybe I could be lead in the right direction myself. Can anyone answer how I would find folks located in the Carolinas which are going through similar problems? Is there some type of locator on this website where I can locate folks that share similar experiences in my own state? The problem of finding a good doctor is a pain across the board especially pain management doctors. I would appreciate any input from anyone to help me locate folks in my own state so that I can get help closer to home although I enjoy sharing experiences from anyone but I also would like to know if there's anyone that may be closer to me that I can get help from as well. Not trying to be funny but does Colorado not have the medicinal marijuana law passed where it should not be as difficult to get pain management through that method if it actually works for someone? We did not have that here in my state which is why I was wondering. I still would like to share my experience but I would also like for someone to help me with my question of finding discussions in my state as well to begin with my journey here on this website. Any help with this navigation process is greatly appreciated.

My only Tablet turns off often. I wanted to add that I wasn't against lowering my Pain medicine some, but not to the point where I am unable to WALK anymore! That's W/ leg braces, & crutches too. This new doctor has NEVER even order ANY Films of my knees in 7 months! He is in Colorado Springs, & is the worst doctor I have ever had! I will have to drive back to Westminster to see my old Primary Care doctor who I can't imagine will do this too me. The doctor to avoid is Dr Nashacar

I have Rheumatoid arthritis, & Degenerative Disk disease! I'm 50, look 40, & was injured by a Drunk Driver when I was 19 yrs old! He died instantly, & I was hospitalized for 3 months, & a Body Cast for 6 months. I took NO Medications until my 40's. When my right leg started to become Bone on Bone! Now my right leg is 2 inches shorter than the left leg, which causes all kinds of PAIN. When I got out of my last cast there was only an inch between my legs, & I moved to Boulder Colorado. I stayed in GREAT shape for decades, until I went on meds. Now I have been on 300 MG of MS Cottin for 5 yrs,(which has put off my knee replacements), until last month when I moved, & got an AWFUL doctor who cut my Pain Medication in half! I'm unable to shop for food, & bring the food in my Apartment. I have tried to call 20 doctors, & none will take my insurance. PLEASE, someone help me to sleep again, & function. I'm living W/ my cat, who suffers from my suffering.

Home. Medicaid people listen up. Every month you will need prior auth. I had to do it with my dilaudid today. Also medicaid will now only pay for under 300 MG of morphine. My dilaudid went from 120 to 90. Medicaid will also only let you fill on 30th day of last rx. No more three days early. Welcome to Obamacare.

Rainbow,
So GOOD to c you writing. I have missed u! Regarding MAC, I know Wendy´s statements are accurate, additionally, one of his friends wrote and stated exactly as she said. It was a difficult time for many of us, especially when his friend asked difficult questions. I think it scared many of us, especially when his death was quickly followed by two others, Wendy´s clarification was appreciated. I also addressed this in the Email that got chopped short. Regardless, so happy to c both u guys here.Thank God for MAC, he introduced all of us.

Wendy, I explained the new medication guidelines, why it seems like oxys arent being covered, the new pharmacy programs being used by several offices and that pharmacies now can yea or nay docs orders and MAC´s issues. Although no professional ever breeched patient-doctor confidences, from knowing him through private discussions, it wasnt hard to put 2 and 2 together. Im quite sure many of us could. As many of u know, I have issues with what I thought was internet issues but ended up my computer had a program that clashed with another program. I got a new computer so I may have done something stupid but it did take my user name without issue. It has been over a month since I have been on, so if there are new rules, let me know. So happy to see the old groups and new ones here! Welcome all!
