Brandy. Yes it is legal you showed up for a drug they had not prescribed further if you have taken ADDICTION medication you know this drug reverses your opioids it is meant to do so. Why would you use this drug if you are on Oxycontin and Percocet? Further this is a liability to your PM specialist if you are physically risking your own life by mixing up drugs or worse yet not using your opioids for your intractable pain, and using ADDICTION medications. In all the years I've done referrals you are a red flag to me, so I do not know how Massachusetts is handling their network BUT in most cases you may be flagged at this time. I do recall reading several physicians in Rhode Island who were good physicians but perhaps you might be honest with your provider and give him/her the scoop on why you showed up dirty. I'm sorry people have got to stop this behavior you go to one physician for PAIN and stay with them you are making it bad for others myself included. I had one physician for 10 plus years until the man DIED unexpectedly and then the famous specialist for 5 years until regulations changed in California for out of state patients. I was injured in 1998 and prior to divorce and moving out to Texas I had one physician other then my surgeon until then so you do the math. No doctor hopping, shopping, or BS. I feel for you if you are now suffering but you need to find out what is going on as ADDICTION is a serious illness which causes other pain patients who are TOLERANT (properly so) to opioids.

Katy I am a professional nurse (BS from old Medical College of VIRGINIA) and a published scholarly researcher. Not only has the FDA intervened which is at a HIGHER LEVEL then this agency intervenes causing a FEAR level in addition to DEA and other regulatory bodies but each STATE has a right to exert their own regulatory issues. I was with the prime or the best of the best in California and he released 30 of us due to new California regulations which meant a reduction to 5% of my Fentanyl level alone and he is one of the many who states "reduction or interruption of her medication will result in death" and this physician has worked with the greats like JFK, and the DEA as well. No a physician NO longer has the freedom I am an exception to to my rare P450. Not to mention the physical wreck and essentially documentation was ALWAYS an issue with physicians. Patients must be more accountable as well.

SH can't you get out to Weyers Cove or Cave you can tell I do not live out there anymore. Balint Clinic sounds like the place you need to go they DO write medications enough so that several people complained about it on VITALS. I also gave you the company my first PM was at and gave you a clue that the doctor is a she. That also means she is still in Richmond. Now that is too long a wait for the methadone sounds like you went somewhere local near the Beach. Go up to Richmond I am sure they cannot wait that long for their street junkies so why should you a decent person have to wait??

I am a 50 hear old female still waiting on my disability with no insurance! I broke my back in 2009 T-7 and have 3 bulging disk, 3 stress fractures along with spurs going from my neck going into my shoulders. Yeah, it is a mess for me to be this young. I have fought through the pain and took over the counter meds most of the time unless it just got to the point to were I could not stand myself and I would to go to the ER. I can get a 1 month script from time to time like that but, I am already on a fixed income and those ER visit's are adding up very fast. I know from talking to my doctor last week, I will be getting my disability but, it is a waiting game. I live off of 409$ a month and go to a clinic here in Anniston, Alabama for people with no insurance. You get asst. with your med's and care and thank the Lord for that! My doctor does have me on a muscle relaxers and it helps but, because of the kind of clinic it is, they are not allowed to do pain management so, to speak. I also have trying to get into a charity program in Birmingham, Alabama. I have been told my T-7 where it was broke in 2009, I went to the ER and had an x-ray but, was told it was just strained at that time. in 2010 it was found with an MRI and it had healed but incorrectly and I was told I would have to have surgery to correct it. But, I am not wanting to just into surgery until it is a LAST resort! I am trying, it is just not an easy process at all to get into charity programs but, I do not know on some days how much more I can take with some of this pain. It is not every single day though and that I am thankful for. I just thought to try my luck here to see if I could find a doctor willing to help out until I get my disability. I have MRI's, X-ray's anything that is needed to validate what I am saying. because, I know there are too many people that have messed it up by misusing pain management doctor's and then it messes thing's up for the one's that do actually need it.

melster, methadone can be helpful to some people in controlling their chronic severe pain. The dosages for pain aren't the same as they are for the management of an addiction.

I'm a 41 year old woman with ALOT of health issue's. For 1 I have an artificial leg from birth defect's. I have been on Percocet & oxycontin for the past 13-14 year's & I've never failed a drug panel until now. they said I came back with suboxone in my system (very low doses). I am now told I have to go to someone else for my pain management while they have dropped me well over 1/2 of my milligrams a day. I live in Massachusetts and I really need help finding a Dr. ASAP, & is this even legal for them to do to me??

Meister, responded to you already but they are holding that one went to VITALS and saw this physician states there is a HUGE wait (bring lunch) but he does not BS around and writes medications. Two comments were made negative but confirmation that he does do medications.

In Reality there are more people Dying from Antidepressants (40,000 + yearly), nearly 80% of which are Suicide. Also, incredible amounts of Non-Opioid Medications that are responsible for astronomical Deaths & Health problems.

They will use ANY EXCUSE to Sway Physicians from helping people who really need it.

Just to clarify some info. I am a pain patient and am also a nurse so I am quite familiar with all the problems going on. I've seen the drug seekers and also the legitimate pain patients. And yes there are new guidelines, but it is still up to the doctor as to whether he chooses to write pain meds or not. The new regulations require more paperwork and documentation. So what that tells me is this is a lazy doctor problem. They just dont want to take the time to keep accurate records and give the patient the care they deserve. Its such a shame I see so many patients suffering. This is just crazy to me because there is a clear difference between the seeker and a legit patient. Legit patients are genuine and have previous documentation. My question is where are the drug seekers getting their meds? Besides the streets! And where are the street guys getting them?

Hi Meister, I rescheduled for Monday long story with me but I am pushing WC to act faster then their 30 days (they will) since medications I take are very expensive. Hitler paid a scientist to develop Methadone back in the day as they had a shortage of poppy. Methadone is one of the best LA medications on the market (I am allergic and also agree about the addict adage but) and cheaper then dirt; pennies a month. When a clinic closes down and many are in life threatening jeopardy it could be a methadone clinic that saves them until they get help. Today the FDA stuck us with the 120 mg. morphine equivalent that is our problem; addicts always abused prescription medications and if pain patients cared for their medication, or did not get too greedy selling at times which most of us would never do but the few bad ones make it bad for all we would not have the fear occurring or pressures again on physicians. Are you on LA medications and hope you are not forced to go cold have you sought another physician?

this is happening to us all, being stereotyped because of addicts who are overdosing, I have had 5 surgeries for crohn's disease as well as degenerative disc disease was on morphine and oxycodone, now our Dr. was forced out and put 600 patients with no meds or Dr. for help, he was my Dr. for 8 years, I live in Michigan good luck trying to find any Dr. who will write you a pain prescription and I refuse to go on any methadone or suboxen, I am not an addict..............

From SH to p 450,

I need Dr in Richmond or Newport news. I had 1 med error. Oral med have no side effects. When I had pump with Morphine/Fentanyl I became paranoid psychotic but didn't know it . Friends knew I was imaging things. I took methadone prescribed by my previous Dr of 5 years. Released. Got new pump Dr. Changed med to Dilaudid. Right away I realized I had gotten mentally crazy on previous meds. Did not tell drs. That dr. Left practice. This area had no other drs to do pumps. I started swelling and surgeon said could be due to pump . I had to have it out or it was to run out of med. So that is my story somewhat shortened. I am now in surgeons office asking for a SI joint injection and help with finding a pm Dr. They said yes to inj. But could give list of drs for pm Said have several lists. No help here So, yesterday I went to city methadone clinic and was accepted. But takes 6 weeks to get to the methadone. I have to drink like opiate addicts everyday. I am going to do it. I am tired of hurting and feeling flu like too. A crappy solution. Doing what I have too in Virginia. God bless all those in pain....

Chris I posted a doc for you no personal knowledge but he GOT bad reviews FOR WRITING medication. He is a physiatrist but was listed also as PT so patients just wanting a PT would be shocked to get this type medication. They are clearing my post to you. His name is Dr. Pedro T. Oliveros. He has 3 offices looks like one in N.O. too so I might check him out myself one in Maitland (near Orlando) and another in Florida I want to know how you make out ok?

Run a VITALS search you will get his number that way.

Chris I must drive 300 miles today to see a potential physician forget Florida and seek nearby states and go. Further all your physician has to do is do the P450 testing it costs well over $3,000 you are still not going to get special treatment if positive but it at least allows your physician to plan your care around it. I won't be back until later tonight try Georgia searches or Alabama. Tennant is OUT due to the new California regulations I went for 5 years he would not have discharged me other then the new C.U.R.E.2

The 120 mg Morphine/Morphine Equivalent Daily Guidelines is from the FDA, The insurance companies often won't pay for a rx if it isn't consistent with FDA Guidelines.

Bambi, when you see a new Dr, don't tell them what meds and doses you want. Most pain drs limit immediate release meds to 2-4 times a day as a breakthrough Med. You also need to get a copy of your medical records from your last Dr that treated your pain in your previous state. Most pain drs start new patients out on a particular Med that isn't strong and then they go from there depending on how the patient responds. What a previous Dr prescribed you doesn't matter now. They need your medical records for diagnostic proof that you have a medical condition that requires pain meds. They also need to read the drug panels and notes to be sure you didn't take any meds, prescription or illegal substances that you should not have.

Chris, you have been told by myself and others here that you aren't going to be able to get the high dose of meds like you did before. You need to be sure you tell a Dr when you see them the first time that you aren't asking for that high a dose and you are willing to work with the Dr to find what works. Not doing this means you won't have pain meds.

SH I'd try Balint I posted a lot of information on that one. I believe also they take insurance as well. Anyone with IP on our level is permanently disabled; my medical records from the famous guy out in California literally state "she can die at any time especially if medication is interrupted" and it is 5 months now I won as stated but even the Deputy Commissioner on informal phone conference said to the AGG who represents MCVH who no longer is MCVH they are privately owned (I am one of the 21 who was in old system on work injury so the private owner hates us they inherited us) but if I had not put aside medication I'd be dead and really had started to cut back some in hopes I'd do a pump referral. With all the regulatory changes pumps should cause less issues for those of us who metabolize too quickly but one of my 400 disorders is systemic end stage RSD so for me the pump is a dangerous undertaking. I go to Houston tomorrow to interview a physician I am really thinking of the neurologist over in Louisiana that has been posted about he sounds fair to folks in pain. The Balint Clinic has two physicians and I just posted all their information for another person in trouble around Richmond. Listen if you are like me I literally took two DON jobs which lasted less than 4 weeks and I've been disabled due to this injury (over 16 years) to get travel funds to California due to WC not paying mileage which is also against the rules. Now for the first time I have to fight my SSD but believe God will get me through just one more time again. {edited for privacy}. Anyhow I want to know you are ok and also some more about why you did not do well on the pump. Did you use morphine or Dilaudid you know they now put Fentanyl in them too BUT due to the small molecule change of overdose is extremely high. Not a danger I want even though I have been on patches over 15 years now.
