I have been suffering from chronic pain for 7 years and have always been on and off pain meds from tylenol 3 to 90mg methadone at the worst of any ever taken. I decided to dose down & get off of methadone as I did not care for the "clinic" enviroment per say as I was using more for pain then for addicition. I found a dr that prescribed me the pain meds for breakthrough pain and the pill form of methadone 10mg was what I chose but now he is gone as he lost his license which sucks for me because NO ONE will give me anything, not even the methadone unless I go back to the stupid clinc and I so don't want that... DOES ANYONE KNOW OF A DR. that would prescribe anything or just something to get me through life with less pain? I am in the twin cities of Minnesota and I will drive if need be.

I am a epileptic with chronic pain that wakes me at night and keeps me up alot. The stress and fatigue are causing alot of seizures bad ones and I need a compassionate Dr that will write for percocet 10, preferably cause I was almost seizure free when I was on it before with my seizure medicine. I am in Kentucky and alot of the clinics here do mind and body or force the injections on you whether you have had them before or not. Please help.

Sorry that's what I meant guess I should've stated it better, but that's how you get schedule II scripts now

BL I am aware of the new laws. I was talking about before the law changed. I was able to get one refill.

Right now in my state every doctor I know must see a patient every month for a written script. They will not post date several scripts for the next two months. They are all running scared. Most won't write at all. Pain management doctors make us sign a contract and then we can get one prescription a month and they require a urine test. It is best to have a PCP that knows you and understands your issues.

I know there is a huge increase in the use of heroin because chronic pain patients are denied the pills they need. Yet the DEA does not seem to know or care why people are turning to heroin. It is a death sentence. I wish something could be done. I am fortunate to have a compassionate doctor.

Dee, refills are when a dr writes or circles a number on the prescription for the number of refills. With Schedule II Prescriptions, Each Prescription Is A New Prescription, There Are No Refills. People may refer to them as refills, but they are new prescriptions.

You can get three refills if they give you three paper scripts dated for each month they're for if they want but as refills on one script the pharmacy won't honor them either.

Jasmine , when the law changes it does not matter how the dr writes a prescription, you cannot get refills. For example, if your dr wrote a prescription for a Schedule II med and wrote any refills on it, you would not be able to get it refilled. There was an execption when hydrocodone/combination because a Schedule II. If the prescription was written Before the day it became a Schedule II, and there were refills on it, you could get those refills until April of the following year. So far all of the state laws I have read are the same as the federal laws, a dr can write three 30 day Schedule II prescription at one time. Chronic pain patients that take opioids for non cancer pain, must be seen at least once every 90 days.

But, it is up to the dr if they want to do this, some do, but most don't.

I did see the new laws on line. One year ago I was able to get one refill with a script. I think the pain management doctor I saw may have been unaware of changes. He is against pain meds and I found most of the pain Drs want to get rich off the money from needless therapy. Even with a refill I still had to come in once a month and then he said he was going to cut me off. My file shows so much damage to my spine he knew I needed pain medication but he did not care.

In my state of CA there can be no scripts for over thirty days without a new script.

My doctor increased the amount so I could get at least ten days extra before I must go back in.

By the way the pain management doctors here will never do that. It has to be one month between visits and if the prescription is a few days early the pharmacies will not fill it.

grace, I couldn't find the Washington State Law that says a dr can only give a patient a 30 day Schedule II prescription. All I found says that they go by the federal law and that states that a dr can give a patient up to three 30 day prescriptions for a Schedule II at the same office visit. The reason I am asking is because often drs tell patients that the law won't allow them to do it when it is the drs decision.

WA state requires you to go to dr. & get physical paper script/ no refills/ every 30 days. Tough on us with foot wounds that cannot travel without help. Bad enough finding help to get to dr.APPTS! Good luck!

BL, my comment about suing the DEA/FDA isn't REALLY all that far fetched I don't think. Same time, I don't plan to get out there tomorrow & start lobbying congress to get the new rules, laws etc reversed. A little bit humor, a bit of a dream perhaps. I'm glad you're here for people but at the same time, a little positivity would be in order from time to time.

Well to be honest with anything that works & works well is addictive but i thank you for your words but i will continue to pray & search for a doc who is willing to help me knowing there's got to be 1 or 2 of them willing to help a woman who truly needs it. You know Doggy DooDoo would be addictive as well if it worked to do what methadone has for me. Thank you kindly for your reply & be blessed

Dee, what you say the reasons are that you have been going to a Methadone clinic don't really matter. The fact is that you now have a history of being treated for drug addiction at a Methadone Clinic. No dr is going to treat someone with a history of addiction with an opiate. Also the dosage for Methadone for Methadone Maintenance Treatment, which is what you have been on, is not the same as the dosage for chronic pain. Saying that you got tried of the problems you were having with pain management drs so you went to a Methadone Clinic makes no sense, unless you're an addict.
