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!!!!!

CO Susie is actually heading up this pain patient petition at the moment. She knows more than I do. The petition itself is on this forum post # 1937. Please check it out and sign if it feels right.
Thanks

Sleptic,

I would have answered sooner, but had to take a trip to the doctor for blood work.

I like the way you think. There isn't any good reason that we don't do it for all 50 states. We could develop them for all, and ask everyone on Medschat to sign the appropriate state.
I know Marianne spent some time developing it, but as she did the ground work, she can fill us in on any pitfalls or hang ups that she ran into. So it should be smoother sailing for us.
I wasn't sure if a petition would do any good, but we have to do something. It seems as if daily, we the chronic ill are being pushed into a worse position. I'm afraid that by this time next year, we won't be able to get medical care, and most certainly won't be able to get our medications. The "war of drugs" will still be useless and we will be callateral damage.

CO Susie
Thanks for asking to send this petition to Colorado people. Actually maybe it should go to all fifty Governors and ask pain patients in all fifty states to sign? We're all in this together. Some states likes ours are just the starting points. Florida is suffering too I've been told.

I don't see why we couldn't do it for both. Marianne lives in AZ, so I'll get with her and see about sending it both places. Means you must have signed. Thank you very much. I'm going to start hard on everyone I know, cause it sounds as if it's just getting totally out of hand with our medications.
I was thinking this morning about perhaps making a paper copy and seeing if people at my doctor's visit would sign and maybe even the grocery. Then I'd enter it onto the computer for them. What do you think?
Any ideas at all for getting signatures?

Anna just saw your post about Scopolamine and Devil's Breath. Yep, Scopolamine at high doses will cause hallucinations, even possible death. It's the same story as other medications abusers will find a way to abuse it. However the patches are safe if used properly. Phenergan and every other antinausea med can cause similar side effects if abused. I've had to use two Scopolamine patches (three days each) over six days rarely and I was very ill during those episodes. I take this as a cautionary tale and I don't worry about it. IF (notice BIG if) you experience strange side effects call your doc or local ER right away. Abusers are a different breed than true pain patients.

Cindy both Scopolamine and Phenergan can have serious side effects. Scopolamine patch is used for motion sickness but it can cause awful headaches and nausea too. Both of these meds are prescribed for specific types of nausea etc experienced by pain patients. Anna and I seem to have these conditions. My symptoms of severe headache, nausea etc occur whether I have pain meds or not. I use Scopolamine and Phenergan cautiously and rarely for specific symptoms. There are other antinausea meds for narcotic nausea. I cautioned several times in this message for good reason. But ask your doc about these meds if you're wondering. Accurate information is a good thing.

Cindy, I've only had scopolamine patches. It goes behind your ear and lasts for about three days. I used that in addition to zofran and phenergan for nausea. I know that you can get oral scopolamine, but I haven't had the oral ones.
