Sorry that you received abuse for your thoughtful response. America is the only country where this type of prescribing is not only prevalent, but considered a right by so many patients. I do not doubt that these patients hurt, but we see so many who are needlessly on the quantities of meds that they does themselves each day. Function and pain control is the goal in our office, and the patient must be willing to work at the problem going to physical or even psychological therapy (over 50% of patients in pain will benefit from psychological therapy - no I am not saying they are crazy, just that they would benefit from the advice and guidance of a good councilor).
Please do not write abusively about my offices practices. We have our successes, and others who believe in a more medicine related approach may have theirs.
Thank you.

I wish I knew why doctors think that patients should have no say in their personal health, unless they want to abort a baby.

Impressive since 50% are in the lower half of their educational class and more than that are screwups with God complexes

AMEN!!! I'm right there with you. I'm currently dealing with an a**hole rhuemotologist at JPS (county hospital for the uninsured) who is jerk know it all who thinks diet and exercise is a cure all. I asked him how the hell I am supposed to do PT when I can barely walk some days at a normal pace!! My PCP sent me to him because it looks like I am on the brink of being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. Actually, I should say another one since I've been dealing with Fibromyalgia for over 20+ years. But you know that Fibro is no big deal, though! BS!!! I've had over 20 surgeries since 1998! I've had bilateral ankle repair/stabilizations, 3 extensive knee surgeries (twice on the right, once on the left), 2 failed rhizotomies for my back, right wrist surgery, 3 L rotator cuff repairs which included a bursectomy, an acromionectomy, a tennis ball size cyst removed and the worst of all, a biceps tendonesis (because the bicep had torn away from the bone trying to compensate for the torn RC so it had to be reattached with a large bone screw). I've had more than 30 cortisone inj's. in my right hip/joint for Illiotibial Band Syndrome and osteoartritis and now have "snapping hip" and osteoarthritis in my left hip. In addition to those I have a Baker's cyst in my left knee which is a cyst full of synovial (joint) fluid where the joint is leaking and causing knee pain and leg swelling. For the icing on the cake my right knee has a torn meniscus which needs to be fixed. Despite alllll of this I am being told basically that I have to suffer!! My ridiculous PCP gives me Tramadol and Robaxin for pain and Lyrica for the Fibro. Not mention the absurd amount of anti depressants because she thinks I am depressed. As I've told her....I'm NOT depressed! I am pissed off and sick of friggin' hurting allll the time! She wants me to see Pain Management however JPS is such a joke and they treat their doctors like crap that every PM doc they've had has quit! The only one who remained (that all the patients loved) just quit recently because he was tired of being worked like a government mule and dictated to as to how to treat and medicate his patients. So...he walked out one day after his last patient and refused to go back. Basically, that means there is no PM in the network right now. Her suggestion was to go see one outside of the network and then bring back his recommendation and she would go from there. Sure, that's a great idea IF I HAD THE MONEY!! I wouldn't be using the county health system if I could afford to go outside of it, believe me!! So, I just continue to hurt every damn day, not to mention I can't do the things I need, want and should be able to do with my 8 and 5 yr old kids. I'm tired of our damn government dictating what and how doctors can treat their patients and with what. Last I checked we still live in a democracy but maybe I'm wrong. The fact that hydrocodone is becoming a schedule 2a is ridiculous!! But more than that is the fact that friggin' Tramadol (glorified asprin/ibuprofen, IMO) is now a controlled drug! Why???? Just because it has the ability to act as a narcotic does NOT make it one. Here is what I told my doctor is going to happen...there will be a dramatic increase in pharmacy thefts, more and more legitimate pain patients (who are treated like junkies by our govt) will start using illegal methods to obtain their meds because they can't get them legitimately and there is going to be a sharp rise in the number of patients overdosing on Tramadol because that is all doctors can or will give!! Maybe once all of this starts happening the damn DEA and DPS will reconsider their position on the meds, though I highly doubt it!!!!

Pompous little tin god. Let me come rip your left shoulder out of socket 20X, pull a rotator cuff tear in your left one, hit your knees until 4 surgerys later including acl transplants and massive bone grinding, you can't sleep at night and everytype of exercise causes enough pain, until your weight blows up to give you type 2 diabetes.

TexasMD, I wish I knew where patients get the idea that they can make a physician write a certain prescription if the submit petitions. That is not reality.

Ortiz, that is a good statement in that it is the Medical Board that sanctions physicians and physician assistants for practicing bad medicine. Remember though that bad medicine may be prescribing meds for the wrong reasons (look up chapter 170 in the Texas Medical Board Rules - available on line and relatively uncomplicated reading). The Board would never sanction for NOT prescribing meds, so your petition would likely fall on deaf ears.

Myth #1: DEA and DPS do not send out letters about physician prescribing habits
Myth #2: there is no medical evidence to support the long term use of hydrocodone. Cancer pain is another issue and is usually classified seperately when responsible physicians consider the benefits vs risk of prescribing a medication.
Myth #3: ANY Texas physician who has applied to the Texas DPS for authorization to prescribe scheduled meds (listed as schedule 3,4,5 and 2 or 2n) and who have requested and paid for the special prescription pad for schedule 2 and 2n meds, CAN prescribe these meds. Does not mean they will if THEY, not the patient, believe the tusks outweigh the potential benefits. Also remember that increased function not simply pain control, is the ultimate goal.

And now the news that Hydrocodone/Acetaminophen is becoming a Schedule 2 in October. This will send this list into a freny when lots of physicians who do not have the special pad and do not want to get one will no longer be able to prescribe.
Dr in Texas.

Thanks, Lyn! I will call them tomorrow to find out about a referral and how much an office visit is. I don't currently have insurance so I need to find out if they even take cash pay patients because a lot of doctors don't. Can I ask what kind of meds/therapy they have you on? Thanks for the info!

I see a pain doctor in Fort Worth. Dr.Thomas Ratino, Dr. Timothy Ratino, and Dr Grant share a clinic on 8th Ave. They are legit. Do UA's every week to make sure you are only taking what they prescribe. I was referred there 4 years ago. Not sure if you need a referral or not. I've had 2 back surgeries in 4 years.

Wake up people..our government is turning us into a communist country, we truely need a voice. My belief is our government can control the pharmacuticles and lost the fight on street drugs...so who suffers.. us chronic pain patients..they treat every patient the same no matter what the problem, as if we just came off the street corner sporting a crack pipe, good grief! Why cant our dr. Fight for us, they getting kick backs? I realize its not easy on the drs, but what the f...the governments getting fat pockets..why not you too :-) soooo tired of being treated as a minority..you drs put us on this stuff now just kick us to the curve, how American!!! God help us all that we cant suffer in dignity, feel some relief from all the hard work we done to make this a great country by taking a pill for some comfort.....so go get drunk, try some H, go to the local cig shop and grab a crack pipe, its becoming the American cure all. Thanks for listening, Tami

The laws changing hydrocodone containing products from a Schedule III to a Schedule II are about to be changed. The comment period is open until April 28, 2014. Put Dea AND rescheduling hydrocodone in your search bar. You can have your voice heard at regulations.gov.

Hi Ms Ortiz....I would love to find out what your info is with regards to fighting back against all the BS surrounding the new "guidelines" and rules for docs prescribing pain killers. How can I contact you privately? If I put my email address on here it will censor it. Thanks.

Cough meds containing Hydrocodone will be moved from a Schedule III to a Schedule II later on this year. That means it can't be called in, no refills, you must see you dr every 90 days if you take it.
