Dr. Who Can Prescribe Methadone

Updated     99

I have just moved to Harrisburg, PA. I found a pain management clinic who will prescribe my methadone (I have been taking Methadone for pain management for 5-6 years), however they have asked that I find another doctor. I was told by pain management clinic that I am the only patient they prescribe methadone for. Does anyone know of a doctor in the Harrisburg, PA area that prescribes methadone for pain management?

Due to the severe addiction issues associated with it, it is not usually prescribed for pain, unless it has failed to respond to all other treatments.

That said, it can be prescribed by any doctor with a valid medical license, finding one that is willing to do it, however, is going to be the tough part.

When you go somewhere and are asking for a specific medication, especially a narcotic, it tends to raise red flags and they are very reluctant to deal with you as a patient.

I am assuming, from this clinics reaction, that you have been unwilling to try anything else recently?

Have you asked them if they can recommend another place you could go to nearby?
