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!!!!!

Doctors can stop prescribing any and all medications whenever they want too. That I know to be very true, my brother has done that to a few of his patients, and told them where to go to get the med's and help they need. Doctors can stop any kind of medication if they feel like it. Is it right? Heck no! Not if the people really need their pain med's etc. Been there ouch! I found a doctor that makes house calls, yes it's more expensive, but at this point in time, I can't drive.

Yes doctors can stop at anytime, but the oath that they take says do no harm and by stopping medication like that would be doing harm and if said patient has a seizure or heart attack the patient can sue. They are suppose to taper or put you on something to help ease withdraw. I'm sorry for the pain you have it sounds really bad, thank the good lord above for great docs that hav compasion if not you and all chronic pain patients would not be able to get out of bed. Hope and prayers for you and all pain patients, hopefully more will start to understand the frustrations and pain we live with everyday by people who don't know what its like to walk in our shoes (which some of us can't even walk most of the time). God bless

FYI, Taking XANAX with OXI (contin or codone) enhance's the effect's of them, & is very dangerous, just so u know, they both are depressants, & u very well can go to sleep, permenantly ! THAT IS NO JOKE, & they (XANAX) is a benzodiazapine that is somthing u DO NOT want to run out of either, as accute withdrawls from this can kill u, not to mention, the effects u go thru withdrawling are horrible, & u never want to find this out, TRUST ME !!! GOOD LUCK TO U !!!

Trust me man I know ALL about every single Rx I am taking. I have long done research into the substances I take as I have always wanted to understand what they do, how they work, the side effects, and all such things. I only take 2mg of Xanax per day and they are XR pills. 2mg a day isn't enough to have a seizure and die from stopping taking them. It's not a severe enough dependence. I stopped for 2 days last week from the Xanax and didn't even feel off. I appreciate your info, but it's definitely something I already know. I don't know about everyone else on here. But thanks anyway.

I had no issues getting what I need. In fact, I am being moved up to higher doses consistently until I am where I need to be. I don't know you, but I know they are VERY strict about who they prescribe for because they have so many people failing UAs and all around trying to be sneaky. There is SOME reason that they cut you down. Either you didn't have proper records or they felt like you weren't willing to work with them on what you are prescribed. They wouldn't prescribe me the level of meds I was on when I was on Fentanyl 100mcg patches until they have seen me for a few months and have gotten to know me. They seem to be very concerned with sniffing out the drug seekers or people who ONLY say oxycodone works for them and nothing else. I talked to Dr. May about this situation specifically, and that is a red flag when someone comes in saying ONLY oxycodone works and no other opiates work. All opiates work for pain, not just oxycodone. Like I said I don't know you, but I know there was a good reason for them switching you. And just fyi, lortab is 10mg hydrocodone and 325mg tylenol. There are no 5mg lortab.

First of all you are right you don't know me and yes opiates work for pain. But not for mine. My prescription said LORTAB 5/500 mg. where I'm from we call those 5's so EXCUUUSE me for not being the PDR that you are. Just like what Tammy said if it's working for you then stick to what works. I was a long haul truck driver and because of being on medication for my back I had to quit and work behind a desk doing dispatch. And it is extremely painful sitting all day. I don't eat 4 or 5 a day. I take one in the morning one around lunch and one at night to help me sleep..I'm not on 50 different pills and Xanax and all that other crap you are on. I also have a gunshot wound I got in a hunting accident 10 yrs ago and still have a bullet in my arm. I didn't discount your pain and you have no right to discount mine. I'm not telling you to go take a Tylenol for your problem. I do have X-rays and mri's for my condition. So you don't like being judged and neither do I. I work for the US Military and I'm pretty sure they wouldn't employ a dope fiend. Check your stats before you pass judgment on anyone. Thank tou

I didn't discount your pain at all!!!! I didn't say a SINGLE WORD about your pain!!!! I said I had no issues getting what I need from them so there must be SOME reason why they didn't give you what you need!!!!! If you're going to just be an ass then leave the site. And yes I'm on 50 different prescriptions. Good math :) And I am not going to sit here and argue with you about your pain or why they didn't write you what you want. Obviously there is some issue as to why they didn't prescribe you oxycodone. And you can't argue that. But whatever. I'm done replying to people like you on here. You get a lot more done with sugar than with salt.

Well to clear up the lortab thing they do have a 5mg also. But if they looked at ur prescription history and seen anything that might be a red flag for them that wuld be a reason for them to not give u the oxycodone because when I went in my first time I was given my oxycodone and the 2nd time he asked if I wanted to up it to 10mg. So I can't say why they wouldn't give you what you said works, and no ur not a drug addict because you say only the oxy works for you cause I have tried norco, lortab(which is the same as norco), vicoprofen, methadone, nyucntas, alieve, tylenol, tramadol, ect. You name it and I probably tried it and oxycodone and vicoprofen worked. I agree that they are cautious but if ur doing the right things and ur history proves it then they are fine with giving u what works, not saying ur not. I would ask them why they did what they did and then u can explain or find someone else, I can only go by my experience and so far he is the best and most compationate doctor I have met besides my obgyn. I'm sorry for the experience but I'm sure there is a reason for the change and make sure some nazi pharmacist didn't red flag u for something stupid and if they say there was a problem with ur prescription history then ask to see it or get a copy tha alone will keep u from ur meds.

And that's ALL I said was that there must be SOME reason that they didn't write what you need. No one discounted your pain and no one is telling you to take Tylenol for you pain. DAMN

And yes I meant Norco, the 10mg hydrocodone and 325mg tylenol. My mistake. But ya, I'm done arguing like a 4 year old. Best of luck to you! Sorry you were shut down, but all I will say is, there must be a good reason. Later!

Your the 4 yr old cause you've got as much knowledge of what you're talking about. And as much as you preach about drug addicts it seems to me you're the drug addict who has nothing better to do than sit on here and berate other people and misinform others. Seems like all you're doing is doctor shopping to get as many pills as you possibly can. Get a life jackass

Lol this is hilarious. I haven't preached about drug addicts and I haven't "berated" other people on here. You keep thinking what you're thinking. Maybe someday you'll grow up.

Ok, I don't know where you are reading your comments bamagrl79 but its not from here. No one sad you were an addict and you are b****ing about the same thing you are doing which is telling someone that the pain the have is fake, and they are doctor shopping. We are just trying to help and you chose to write on here so don't sit there and tell others that their pain is fake and they are doctor shopping when you don't know. You can't judge someone when you don't know them and if someone is doctor shopping I say let them kill themselves one less problem. But really no one said that you were an addict or doctor shopping, so you can move on and quit verbally abusing people on this site which is suppose to help not hurt people.

Check online for suboxone doctors they should have a list, only suboxone docs can prescribe that not any doctor, its a different a different dea# for them and they have to be trained for addiction medicine to be able to be able to prescribe it. So our doc wouldn't be able to help on that one sorry.

I know one PM doc that I saw wanted to put me on it because I didn't have an MRI at the time so he probably thought I was lying about my pain just to get drugs but he definitely could prescribe it. So try calling Pain Management doctors.
