My dr in mont al has been prescribing me 3 80mg oxycontin for several years.My visit last wk he refilled my scrip and said it could be the last because he was told there was diversion possibly coming from his practice.Btw that was 3 a day. If he doesn't refill my scrip on my next visit. I need to find a DR quick. Is it legal not to wean a patient off? The pain clinics in this town are full.

I just need a doctor to keep working with me until my pain is under control. I am on diss. I can't work. There is no reason I should be in so much pain I want to die when there is medicine available to stop the pain. I take 30mg morphine 3Xday and 15mg morphine ER 2X a day and it does not work. I just need taken seriously. I want to go to heaven but suicide is NOT in my future. I just want to have no pain.???

The whole lot if us in pain are not on Medicaid and why r unresponding if you don't have pain. Most people with pain have other problems like OVARIAN CANCER or other problems, don't judge until you feel real pain yourself. Exercise is good until you stop then the pain comes back

This is ridiculous...How would they feel if the only life you get to live is up to someone else's discretion whether it be in agonizing pain. Remember people.....We only do this once...(life)....Who are you to think you can see pain inside another human being.....

I've been having problems with my own Doctor who cut my prescription of the last 7 years by 1/3 and again by 1/3. Now I cannot work, I've lost a job and I lie in bed all day, unable to even walk my dog. Any chance you'd share who your doctor is?

could you possibly give me the name of your dr. in alabama? do you know if he would be willing to see someone with a florida ID? It is such a mess down here that I do not even want to bother with any of these clinics anymore. There are cutting everyones scripts in half and I have to many problems to have to settle for that. thank you.

Well, I hope you find a Dr in Montgomery. I sencerely wish you lot of luck.
I am now trying a different strategy. I'm trying find someone to trade me homes. Mine is almost brand new and paid off. I would like to trade a home with 10acres for something similar in Florida. I'm not very hopeful but thought II was achance. This economy is a mess, but all else fails guess I"l be living on the mountain in Fort Payne suffering in severe pain. Until then I'm still searching. I wish everyone luck in their tasks. Have a low pain day.
P.s I honestly think Dr's in Alabama are illiterate to chronic pain.

No unfortunately 30 days is all they have to do. But if your doc is compassionate at all he should refer you or wean or give you something else to help your pain. I know it sucks I have been in PM for 6 yrs. I tried to live up in fort Payne I bought my home in cash and tried to relax and did until my Dr could not treat me anymore BC I lived out of state. For 3 yrs I only had to see my doctors every 3 months but then I got 30 day refill and had to move. I loved it up there but couldn't find a Dr. Very stressful sitution for me and you. I now live back in my home state of FL I found new doc here but drug addicts making hard for good Dr to prescribe.

I am very glad to hear that the problem has been solved, but it is really awful that it happened to begin with.

Yes, under the new laws that were put in place a few years ago, as I'm sure you're aware, no one but an actual doctor is allowed to write prescriptions for controlled substances, such as narcotics or Benzodiazepines. Even physician's assistants or nurses that are licensed to practice can no longer write them.

It may have been a hard decision for him, but in light of the situation, it was probably his only remaining option. The nurses definitely know better.


Is you have anything else you need help with, feel free to post and ask, at anytime!

Thanks for your responce but the situation has been rectified. The problem was a nurse who would not let pharmacists speak to the DR to confirm the class2 scrips. He never lost the ability to write the scrips. I've always considered him a friend and told me before that he would never cut me off. As I said in my previous post he didn't seem his normal self. He's had to fire 2 nurses for writing their own scrips and I think he had to think it through.

Verwon Says:
If he cannot continue to prescribe, he should be able to refer to another doctor or clinic that will accept his current patients. Has he suggested anyone?

And yes, it is perfectly legal for a doctor to stop prescribing your medications, even if they are habit forming, at any time. They are not obligated to treat you or prescribe anything, unless you are in life threatening danger.

As a courtesy, however, most doctors that lose their prescribing privileges, retire or move their practices, will set something up with another doctor or doctors, that are willing to take over their patients.
