Doctors In Louisiana That Prescribe Methadone For Chronic Pain

Sara Says:
I have been taking 120 mg of methadone for approximately 5 years. My husbands job transferred us from Florida to Louisiana where I found a pretty good pain doc. He is now running scared and wants to take me off of methadone. Methadone has given me a good quality of life; I am able to work and be a productive member of society. My doctor is unwilling or unable to assist me in finding a new doctor who will continue my meds. Oh yeah, I have been the route of blocks and injections and gotten little if any relief. I'm tired of being branded a drug seeker-I have years of medical records that back up my claims and verify the dosages that I've been on-what drug seekers have this kind of back up? I am looking for a Louisiana doctor, but am willing to travel (within reason of course). Please help!!

oh man I was in the same postition. I was shot in the back and had 4 surgeries and was told I'd suffer chronic pain the rest of my life. This was in New Jersey. I had NP getting 120 a day of meth from the pain clinic. As soon as I moved to pittsburgh, PA, The ONLY way I can get over 20mg a day is to go to a clinic witch I've had to do for the past 3 years. Granted I only have to go 1 time a week now. I did have to go every day, I'm urine tested every month and treated like a herion addict. It's either this or go to the pain clinic and be treated with 80mg oxycontin and fentanyl patches, witch just made me stoned out of my mind 24/7. On the Methadone I can work. and live a normal life. It's a shame there's such a stigma attached to it.

Sara, There are 8 methadone clinics in Louisiana. If you have records ask your doctor to refer you to a pain clinic. If he won't,contact one and tell them you just came from Florida or not ,and they should treat your pain. Pain clinics will give methadone if needed or other medicine for pain.

Yes I am looking for a new doctor, life situations have changed now with a new beautiful baby girl, that I dont think its fair to make the kids go along. But just last Sunday i was jumped and robbed right on camera on clinic property with my children seeing every bit. I did not even fight back, im serious about my recovery and wasnt going to risk gettin tossed. But i guess i should have, b.c they arent even doing anything at all about it, sweep it under that the rug. Now im the one who is looking to transfer elsewhere, the rcm monroe is full of nepotism,double standards, and just plain and simple a joke. 75 cash a wk for diluted medication. I should be at an optimal blocking dose if it truly was 100mg but i can get high as if im not even on it. Im running out of options. Im uber sick and gotta try to guest dose today cuz its getting bad, i gotta drive from my moms so i need clinics off that interstate. Thank you all, just for the dicussion. I havent slept in 5the days, i got a few pills stashed, dilly and a MoMofeen60. Took em and body chewed thru em in less than an hour. Sweatin like a pig,,,,,,ick.

I have a same experience. I was moved to Louisiana but now I had to move back to California because my Doctors who are in California are very caring. Louisiana Doctor doesn't care about your pain. In fact, Methadone does not damage the immune system. In fact, several studies suggest that HIV-positive ,hepatitis, or back pain patients who are taking methadone are healthier and live longer than those drug users who are not on methadone. So we are not Drug User as this Louisiana doctor think.

I'm 30 with severe osteoporosis, which causes me chronic pain. I'm located in covington and cannot find a doc that will help. If your doc is still taking patients, please give me the name and address. My job is very physically demanding and I really don't think I can do it much longer without help. I've tried the injections and blocks, but they don't help at all.
