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.

Does anyone know of a doctor in northwest Indiana that prescribes controlled pain meds such as Norco or Percocet? After 8 years with the same doctor, he retired and I have been to a dozen doctors, pain clinics with no luck getting anything but injections and recommendations to other doctors and still nobody will help a disabled guy who has all the proof possible to prove my long term chronic pain. I live in the Hammond, INDIANA area and all the abusers have made it nearly impossible for a legitimate person to get what they need!

Ashley Slatton, if your state expanded Medicaid you can apply for Medicaid. You aren't going to be able to find a dr that is going to prescribe you oxycodone and ativan. You may be able to see a psychiatrist for the ativan and a pain management dr for the oxydodone. If you aren't eligible for Medicaid, you will have to pay to sse your drs

I was going to a Dr that ended up getting his license pulled, and I have 3 ruptured vertebraes and spinal stinosis,and I also have a heart condtion called long qt that has required a pacemaker and a icd put in me. Now that the Dr that I was seeing got his licensed pulled I'm not getting the meds I was getting that had finally got my quality of life better which was only 2 10 mg oxycodone and 3 1 mg ativan and I can't find a Dr to take me in plus I don't have insurance. I need help desperately getting in a doctor.

KAY, a hand surgeon cannot guarantee that carpal tunnel won't come back. What is important is how long the carpal tunnel has needed surgery. If a patient waits too long it doesn't matter who does the surgery, it will come back soon. It is a simple surgery and many surgeons don't even put the patient to sleep. But carpal tunnel surgery, like any other surgery does have it's risks.

Lynn 518,
Listen, ask your Pharmacist if you can take the 2 drugs together, as they usually know mORE about drugs than the Doc, however I know you STILL need a script. Also, ask the pharmacist who prescribes these or perhaps which pain clinic does (they usually tell you). If one doesn't, ask the pharmacy manager or another pharmacy. Be vigilant & if you keep getting told they can't or they are NOT good together, then I guess I wouldn't keep trying if they are dangerous!! As far as the carpel tunnel, get the surgery! If you go to a HAND SURGEON, they do this all the time-and they are the experts doing a lot of this surgery, it will NOT come back. Some people go to surgeons that are NOT HAND DOCTORS & they are not as good.. You want a hand specialty Doctor so it will not come back! Go to hand therapy after for 2 weeks or so & you WILL be good as new. Don't wait forever because it just makes the surgery worse. It was the easiest surgery ever! You will probably need a "pain clinic" because you have to go every month to get percocet & others.Good luck to you!

For anyone on or looking to get methadone, STOP TAKING IT, DON'T USE IT, IT'S A KILLER. I took methadone for little over 4,years. That poison destroyed my stomach, intestine, and hard telling what else its done to my other organs. I took 100 to 125 mgs for that period of time.It also caused my esophagus to almost close shut called a structure which means narrowing, made it hard to swallow anything, even water.

I'm dying from this poison. I STOPPED OVER TWO YEARS AGO AND IT WAS JUST NOT SOON ENOUGH. IT'S VERY PAINFUL. ALSO THE DOCTOR WHO WENT DOWN INTO MY STOMACH SAID HE SEES THIS ALL THE TIME IN PEOPLE WHO ARE TAKING METHADONE. TELL ANYONE YOU CAN and most important NEVER LET ANYONE TELL YOU DIFFERENT.

ITS A DEATH SENTENCE. ALSO IT TOOK BASICALLY ONE YEAR TO GET OVER THE WITHDRAWALS AND SIDE EFFECTS, IF NOT CONVINCED LOOK INTO IT.

SINCERELY ON YOUR SIDES, VINCENT FROM PEORIA HEIGHTS, ILL.

Elizabeth, see a Pain Management Dr and take a copy of your medical records from your pcp stating that you are allergic to tylenol. There are plenty of pain meds without tylenol in them. But, in all honesty, it more than likley is the other med you were given and not the tylenol. The only way to know for sure is to take Tylenol only. Your pcp should have known the ER would not believe what you said. ER's don't usually have access to medical records from drs that treat outside the hospital.

Yes my doctor sent me to the ER as she was on call and could not see me that day, she told me to tell them in the ER my allergies and definitely Tylenol , I explained this to the ER and they brought me 2 Tylenol , basically saying just what you had mentioned! So I trusting the Dr and his medical advice took the Tylenol and wih in half hour /45 minutes my breathing was out of control , rash all over my body ,hives needles to say I ended up with an O2 mask on .. My pulse was very high , the response front the ER was so insulting , as the very words said to me was ,oh my goodness I quess your PCP was correct and you did tell us you were allergic !!
I was so livid scared and crying so hard , I left ! Saw my regular Dr the next day and she called the ER right from our office visit !
When it sais Fatal from my PCP and in my charts had shown I had had the same reaction prior , thus being why it states fatal on my allergy to Tylenol !!!

Elizabeth, have you gotten a copy of your medical records from the ER and read them ? If you have and they indeed state that you have life threatening reaction to Tylenol ( acetaminophen) have you taken them to your doctor ? Chances are it is the medication that you were given that also contains Tylenol and not the Tylenol it's self that you are allergic to.

Knotts , a copy of the patients medical records should indicate if a particular med works well. But, that doesn't mean a new dr will agree to the same meds.

Yeah BL, I see all kinds taking the wrong approach unfortunately. I can truly empathize with what many patients are going through, how scary it can be to find a new doctor, and especially having to stop taking a medication that has been effective at treating the pain for so long. But the misconceptions that you mentioned can actually work against a patient these days. That's the problem. Going in and asking for a specific drug but discounting the fact that the doctor has to follow protocols and use their best judgement to decide what treatment plan is appropriate.

So I think the question we all need to be asking is how doctors and patients can meet each other in the middle. A patient SHOULD tell the doctor what medications they have taken in the past, how they responded, etc. But don't back the doctor into a corner by requesting a specific drug. Let them figure it out for themselves otherwise they could feel like they're in a position where they just prescribed a drug at a patient's request, which can land them in hot water. Is the difference clear? A doctor prescribing a drug on their own is THEIR treatment plan. A doctor prescribing that same drug at a patient's request is a pill mill as far as the DEA is concerned. It is truly a razor's edge!

I wish everyone would be pain free. But please everyone do the best you can to get the right treatment. Disclaimer ... i'm not a doctor but i've seen plenty and taken many different meds in my time.

Knotts, I don't understand why people don't get it either. They seem to believe that they have a right to the pain meds they want at the dose they want because they have been prescribed it by a previous dr. They also have some uneducated belief that the U.S. Constitution guarantees it. I guess they have read something on the internet about a Patients Bill Of Rights and without actually reading a Patients Bill Of Rights and little education, they think that is the same thing as the Bill Of Rights. They think having their pain addressed is the same as being prescribed pain meds. A Patients Bill Of Rights does not guarantee a patient pain meds.

Each dr treats their patients they way they think they should be treated. Drs don't treat patients the same way another dr has, unless they determine that is what is best for the patient.
