Doctors Willing To Prescribe Pain Medication in columbus ohio or springfield ohio
63 Replies RSS
My doctor had a stoke and was prescribing me 30 mg a day of methadone for a chronic pain syndrome..I am a 51 yr old that has never abused drugs!! Does anyone know a dr. or pain dr. that is willing to prescribe this to me..Either in Col, ohio, or Springfield ohio!! Thanks for your time!! ## You'll most likely need to see a pain management specialist, due to the new regulations that were put in place at the beginning of the year. Due to the increased rates of over prescribing and improper prescribing, the DEA and FDA are making it harder for general practitioners and surgeons to prescribe such medications for long-term use and most people that need them must be referred to pain management. Learn more Methadone details here. Additionally, you'll need to stick with a doctor that liv...

Sacramento, Ca area doctor who prescribes methadone for pain
8 Replies RSS
Both my husband and I have been on methadone for pain mgmt for over 5 yrs. We moved to Marysville, Ca and can't find a doctor that prescribes methadone so we are extending our search area to include Sacramento area doctors. We are both ill from withdraw and after a very tearful conclusion that we had no options but to enroll at the local methadone clinic. we are back home worse than ever as they won't take us because we take it for pain. Of course by now we are completely addicted but because we weren't on it exclusively for addiction they just said good luck and there's the door. PLEASE help. We are self employed and money is not an issue even if we have to pay to see a doctor. ## There is no such thing as a Methadone doctor, that might be what's complicating things...

Normal side effects may include nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with? ## thank you,,i have been on keflex now for 2 weeks n am do...

can methadone abuse be confirmed by a test
Post a Reply
The mother of my child is in a methadone program. She sleeps a lot and I've seen her nodding off on the couch but not lying back, sitting up! When I ask her about anything to do with her addiction problem she does not want to talk about it! If I press her she gets quick tempered and hostile! I think she's buying extra methadone and abusing it because she shows all the signs of it from what I've read about it and I fear for my child's safety!

Methadone/ depression issues?
34 Replies RSS
I have been taking methadone tablets,15mg-3 times a day, for back pain. I also have some depression issues as well, The methadone seems to make me in a good mood as well as taking my back pain away. I do have many mood swings lately where I go from very good feeling to very bad very quickly sometimes, This usually happens when the methadone starts wearing off. I think I may need to see a psyhciatrist about this. I do the methadone for pain, but maybe I need something else for my depression, I also have suicidal thoughts sometimes too, I have heard of mood stabilizers, Do these work? If anyone could suggest a medication , It would be appreciated. Also when the methadone is wearing off, I will feel very tired and weak, Without the metadone, I really cannot function that well due to the co...

i am struggling real bad with panic attacks ..lots of doctors don't understand some people need benzos to live a productive life and i am 1 of them ,so please help??? ## Hello, Robert! How are you? I'm sorry, but this website does not prescribe nor sell any medications or products, it is an information only website. You might be creating the problem yourself, if you're seeing doctors and asking for benzos. They have the tendency to be habit forming and are often abused, so most doctors will view that as being drug seeking behavior and just won't see you or will refuse to prescribe them. Normally, the doctor expects to make the diagnosis and suggest what you should try as a treatment, if one is appropriate. Additionally, benzodiazepines do not help with depression, since ...
