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!!!!!

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!

Hi everyone. I know I'm sorta new here and I don't post all the time, but I'd like to think you are my 'people' :) Especially those who've taken time to respond and encourage me. I would love to meet up with you, but I'm just barely surviving at this point (I wouldn't invite myself anyway). Ran out of leave so I'm working and in the process further damaging my own health. I have literally no one, as my family (abusive all my life) used my illness and resulting depression to "prove" to everyone I'm just worthless and lazy, wanting attention. Don't mean to complain...that would be another board anyway! Just wanted to say I understand feeling alone, and hope sometime I can meet you all. For now I wish you the most peace and health possible :)

Hi, I'm in the same boat. Broke my back, kidney problems and docs are very hesitant to prescribe. It's getting ridiculous. These people are too afraid to do their job because the feds are cracking down on them so we have to suffer...quite literally. Please point me in the direction of a doctor who still has the integrity to do the right thing and treat pain like they swore an oath to do in the first place. If someone dies, gets addicted, or any other tragedy occurs it's not the fault of the physician who did what was right, which is to alleviate suffering. My email is {edited for privacy}.

WOW!!! Good to hear from u guys again. Thought I had an internet issue, after a month of my computer in the Geek Squad´s ICU, found out it was my computer all along. NOT a virus but a program incompatibility. Hopefully I can clarify some things, yes Medicaid does allow Oxy´s however they do convert its potency to the MS potency and u are allowed a total of the MS equivalent of 300 mg a day. Right now, some dosages can be over this limit and are grandfathered in but with the understanding that you will be weaned down to this limit within x amount of time. Each patient is different. Yes! It is true that all scripts from CPR will all go through one pharmacy. Try to make your appointment prior to your due date or expect to have to go directly to this pharmacy to fill your script that day. Apparently, several patient´s abused the system, changed their scripts, putting our docs in jeopardy and making using this pharmacy a must do, no exceptions, so they can properly monitor the scripts. It does tick me off that those of us who take what we are supposed to, havent ever had a dirty U/A, never doctor shopped and kept within the rules, have to now jump through hoops to get our scripts filled. Additionally, more good news for Medicaid patients, you no longer have the three day leeway to refill your script, it has to be within 30 or 31 days. Do yourself a favor and plan ahead. Vacations are no exception. They can overnight your scripts but otherwise you have to make your 30 day allowances last until you see the doc. Most of these are medicaid rules but it does tick me off, the folks that abuse the system and do not care about the others they are affecting. Do not hit the messenger as it is not your providers causing these rules to be put in place, blame the folks who are not following the rules.

Additionally, there were some questions on UAs. Some of the cups have a temperature reader within them, making not taking its temperature not needed. Some cups also have reader for what types of medications you are taking, such as opioids, benzo, etc in them, some even specific medications and general dosage also in them. So it depends on the cup you are using to tell what they are monitoring, some clinics actually change them around but typically all U/A's are send out, especially if their cups show something other what they are supposed to see is or is not there.

I am not sure why the situation with MAC has been brought up again and have tried reading back, still without an indication of why and I can honestly say most of us who have been with this group since his first post, contacted him personally, knew him on a personal as well as a pain patient. I assure you, he was loved, still sorely missed and making assumptions regarding his passing, especially those that are untrue, are sure to open still tender wounds. He brought us all together and for only that, we should honor him. I know many doctors are being rather conservative with these Medicaid guidelines and if you have questions, ask a pharmacist that you trust. The power is no longer in the doctors hands but the pharmacies provide the yeahs and nays these days and can refuse any script they are uncomfortable filling. I hope this helps clarifying things!

I´m so despirate,
You may try Dr Jueterzonke, he specializes in ¨difficult patients¨, although he is not a pain doctor, he does have a good referral system for pain doctors. I think there is also a Rocky Mountain Orthodedics, it has been a long time that referred patients to a wonderful pain doctor. If I´m wrong about the name of the group, let me know. I wish I can remember any other names but it is well over 8 years since I had used them. I hope it helps. The ortho group has a wonderful knee doctor there also!
