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.

christina I am so sorry. I wish I had an answer. I think if you try to look at doctors in your area and then read Yelp especially near your address you may get an idea about how patients are treated.

Maybe you could ask a pharmacist if they could refer or know of a physician who will help you. I had a woman approach me at the pharmacy when she saw me pick up my Norco and she asked for the name of my doctor. Her doctor decided not to prescribe opiates any more. My pharmacists have been very kind. I switched to Walgreen's. They know me and my issues. I see my family doctor every month and he is kind and he treats me with respect. I hope you find that too.

My sister has been to a pain management and has had therapy and they have only given her small amounts of Vicodin 5 mg She was given Meloxicam, I may have misspelled that but she was bleeding into her stomach so they had to take her off that pill. She gets about 15 pills for the month and the family doctor won't write opiates. She also has seen an orthopedist and a rheumatologist but none have helped her pain. She never wanted to take opiates but right now there is nothing else left. She is in her 70's and otherwise healthy except for her spine. She must use a cane and hang on to a shopping cart to shop. She is a widow and it makes me so angry that she is treated so badly. She had a cadaver bone placed in her spine when she had surgery but that has not taken the pain away.

I hear similar stories all of the time. She has always been very cautious with her meds and has never been addicted to anything .

Jasmine, how long a patient should take opioids after surgery, for acute pain and for chronic pain are all different. Has your sister gone to a Pain Management Dr for pain management with her chronic pain ? A lot also depends on how much she is taking.

Hi BL

I am not talking about new laws but the doctors prescribing are being told to limit opiates for two weeks and then quit. I appreciate your links. They do talk about the pressure on doctors. I know my sister in Wisconsin was given a two week prescription and she was told she cannot get another one. She has had surgery, too many epidurals to count ,and nerve ablation, yet they want her on steroids and nsaids and not on opiates. She asked for another back surgery and they said her bones were too fragile. She is in pain every day.
What bothers me is the papers and t.v channels seem to be too focused on this.

I also had an orthopedic physician say to me no more opiates even though I never ran out and I saw him monthly. He was upset by the pressure of prescribing and just quit . I am fortunate my PCP helps me out but that Dr may change his mind too.

Jasmine, what you are talking about are not new laws, they are Guidelines and Recommendations. I have put two links below that go into details about these new recommendations and guidelines.

CDC Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain — United States, 2016-

Fox News has had several doctors say that in New York the rule will be no opiates prescribed unless a person has cancer and is in great pain because of it. The papers are filled with articles about deaths from opiates. I am in shock over this. Pain patients are being left to suffer. There is a move to stop prescribing opiates even codeine.

I would bet the information is on line about this. I know every state has their own laws but in CA the talk is the same.

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.

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.
