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 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!!!!!

Wendy… How are you feeling? Are you going to stay with the new doctor or go back to the original one? Lucy

I don't know Dr. Lincoln but from what I've heard he is probably more compassionate than Dex. Yes he's good for patients who have tried everything else only to fail and find that medication is the only thing it works. And he helped me out when I lost my PCP and wrote me a script that I normally would get from the PCP and gave me lots refills too, and I never asked I just told him that those meds would not come up on my U/A in my care of it. And going every other month with Scripts in hand for the next month is a major plus for me. But if you're looking for inj. and any other modalities he would not be the one for you so it really depends on what you're looking for and he suits me perfectly. Except for the cost of coarse and having Medicaid and recently declared officially disabled and having to come up with $320 every other month Plus I pay $150 for 75 µg patches because I am on 175. Medicaid declares it as too long acting. Many will only cover one long acting medicine. It's crazy because the only reason I take two patches it because they don't come in higher doses so we have to make two doses to equal what I need. So in the end I am paying $300 a month and my disability check is $550. I know it's going to be supplemental but then they lowered my Quest amount by $100 to fix their formula. Any ideas as to how I can get more money? I love to work, I want to work but I've only been able to work a couple of days a week and I do bookkeeping for several clients and there are many due dates that I have to meet even if I'm not well. Then they told me I could make up to 1100 a month, so 1500 a month when rent is now sky-high is basically putting me homeless at some point apparently. I gave you a very long answer to a very short question. I hope that it works out either way. Please let me know via this site. Godspeed.

The place that I got referred to told me that. They aren't shut down. The DEA is messing with my doctor. They have some docs filling in.

I agree with the Oxycodone statement. I actually found out that as far as personally, Oxycodone leaves way to many receptor sites open, but 29 broken bones, including 4 total joint replacements due to broken joints...is gonna find any available open sites, and put me through living hell. I know they quit making them a while back...but this accident occurred on Oct. 25th, 2001...but I'm the only person I've ever known or even heard about that received prescriptions for OxyContin 160.. 3 per day, or every 8'hours....and 1 or 2-8 mg hydromorphone tablets every 4 to 6 hrs. And that was when I came home nearly 2 months after the accident...the best thing had to be getting home to my KING SIZED comfy bed, and all my TV channels.... But my Lord, with the Rehab....even with the pain mgmt. Dr. I was seeing, was hell. I believe I was the only person I knew of that he didn't urine check, nothing. Course the first time he saw me I was in a comatose state, and nearly a whole body cast, 5 and a half ft. Of scars. Methadone us a great pain med, but 20 mg....if far from enough to block other opioids. After a year I quit taking everything, got sick as a dog, and then just HAD to figure out what made me sick, and ended up getting a Certified Alcohol and Drug Addiction Counselors Cert...then I wanted to work specifically with opioid addiction, and got a Certified Addiction Specialist Cert. I work with a lot of Methadone patients and have taken it a few times through the years for pain....it covers the receptor sites A LOT better than Oxycodone Hcl...in the State of Tennessee...the TBI gas taken control of Physician Prescription monitoring so aggressively, they've scared the hell out of the Drs... And Pain Patients have transferred to Methadone Treatment Facility....Knox has 2 of those, Nashville like 4 and Memphis bout the same...Chattanooga, being in the Tenn.,Ala.,and Georgia borders, literally I mean, we now have 6..they are simple to transfer to...and this ISN'T a commercial...I don't work for them, I'm actually a Bail/Fugitive Recovery Agent, that people I've bailed out, and aren't ready to quit, I'll send them to one of them, and they then tell me it saved their lives....AND FAMILIES!!! Do whatever you need to, just to locate some normalcy in your lives...

BONNIE...I agree with you on Dex. Like I said he's an acquired taste.. For someone like me who has tried every modality with no success I appreciate just getting my meds. He tells you our previous docs have done us a great disservice by putting us on such levels of meds making what we are on essentially less helpful. I've been going for a year and he gives me what I need and stays with what you are on if you want to. He won't go up unless your on very low doses and they are not working. And yes after the initial consult fee it comes our to $160 a month and you get post dated rx for the next month so you only need to go every other month. I'd be interested in hearing from other patients of his.

If You are taking 60mgs of Methadone along w/ Oxycodone the 2 aren't really compatable. Methadone above 20mgs a day block the effects of other opiates.

Wow, this morphine equivalent is such a stupid thing. I was first taken off fentanyl in Jan, now my body is so usde to morphine that it does nothing to relieve my pain. I have an incomplete spinal cord injury, both hips are broken and dislocated, but I can not have hip replacement, due to paralysis. I was a 2x Olympic skier before I broke my back. I hate how patients that have to use schedule 2 medication get labeled as drug abusers. I would move to another country if I knew I could get the pain relief I need. I am trying to find a Dr. to do a nerve ablation in my right hip joint. Has anyone out there had one?

Here is some info from the DEA / Federal Register:

"The DEA received one comment from a DEA-registrant and three comments by non-DEA registered entities regarding the proposed removal of the additional 25% of the estimated medical, scientific, and research needs for the United States. Two of the commenters requested that the DEA continue to include the additional 25%, one commenter requested transparency in the process of setting aggregate production quotas, and the last commenter agreed with the DEA that the additional 25% should not be included in aggregate production quotas values. The DEA has considered these comments, as well as the ones for specific controlled substances and ephedrine (for sale), in establishing the 2017 aggregate production quotas and assessment of annual needs."

Rainbow, personally I think they raise their prices b/c they know they can. Supply and demand ya know? I also believe it signals how comfortable the practice feels. If they feel it's only a matter of time like Dr Dex, he raised his prices from 4 bills to 6 bills on the initial intake appt. That sends a big red flag to me that they feel their practice is temporary and he better make bank while he can.

Chaos, thank you for your kind words. Yes, you're correct bout the new amount which was 120mg max morphine equivalent so they picked the least effective to base this on. I'll certainly locate and sign the petition. I didn't know about the petition so thanks for the info on this.

They're supposed to cut the amount of opiates coming into the United States by at least 25% for the year 2017. I also have been reading how there's a petition being pushed to eliminate and outlaw Oxycodone in the United States. People are not trying to understand why people are even having to be prescribed opiates in the first place. It's REFER MADNESS all over again. What's worse is by the DEA really cracking down on pain clinics and doctors not wanting to prescribe opiates is making people who never did any street narcotics to turn to HEROIN. I know of 3 people that have started doing heroin because they were cut off of there opiate prescription. So now there's going to be an epidemic of heroin addicted people in the USA.......

Rainbow: I would not be surprised if the prices were going up because of the increase in calls for appointments.

My goodness I can't find the link for you to just click, But The FDA plans to cut opioid production by 25%, including hydrocodone. They want to make even less. Google the info, but after Please sign the petition, it has not had enough signatures.
