doctors who will prescribe pain medication between Shreveport and Lafayette, Louisiana

My husband and I are looking for a new pain management doctor, because the one we go to in Lake Charles, LA seems intent on bleeding us for every penny we have and threatening to not make us appointments for the following month if we don't pay the amount that they tell us we need to pay. My husband is disabled, but is still waiting for his SSI to be approved. In 2008, he was driving a log truck with an unloaded trailer and he was hit head on by a pickup truck. Point of impact was shown to my husband by the Trooper that was there, and it was on my husband's side of the road on the white line. He was trying to ditch the truck instead of get hit, but the guy whipped over too fast for my husband to get to the ditch. This was on a 2 lane blacktop road. The front tire and the tank wit...

if splitting a pill is safe
2 Replies RSS
Can I break a m367generic Norco in half and take it ? ## Ask your doc first...I take half's when I am in less pain, & holes when I have brake through pain..less pill is better for you liver & whatnot. If I can take 3 & 1\2 & still control my pain....than I consider I'm doing my body a favor. But Still Ask Your Doc First!!! Before Changing your regiment!!!! ## @Yvonne, While I agree with Patrick that you should discuss this with your doctor before making any changes to an existing regimen, I will say that M367 is made to be cut in half for a divided dose. The score line (divid) on the back is what confirms this...and you'd actually use that as a guide to measure half a dose. Several years ago I resorted to taking half of one of these (every 4-6 hours) after a ...

white norco pill watson 853
14 Replies RSS
I have been on Norco for years . I have used it in conjunction with Roxicodode with great sucess. Now that I have switched to the white version I am having serious problems controling my pain. I don't believe they just removed the dye. This white Norco has become a placebo falling far short of the results I once had. Now I am in scramble mode to find a replacement for the old yellow Norco. Walgreens has told me they have had several calls with other pain patients suffering from the new White Norco. Obviously Watson drug has altered the Norco to increase profits at the patients expense. How surprising. I will update fellow sufferers of the new bad White Norco with an alternative as soon as my Pain Clinic can finda replacement.

Generic Norco m367 10/325
80 Replies RSS
Is crap. I have to take three at a time for 1 hour of pain releif. Anybody else have this problem with M367 - 10/325 ? ## Recently went to refill my norco script and they gave me M367 10/325 instead of the yellow 10/325. One of the yellow pills would last 4 hours. With the m367 I have to take 3 at a time for 1 hour of pain relief. Let me know if any of you have encountered the same with M367 10/325. Thank you ## I'm sure there are others that have had similar problems, there can be some slight fluctuations from one generic medication to another, so not all of them work well for everyone that tries them. For example, I can take this same tablet and it really hits me very hard, after taking just one, I have good pain relief and am pretty much tired and groggy for most of the day. You ...

What color is original 10 mg norco
2 Replies RSS
What color is a non generic norco 10 mg and who is original manufacture. ( original norco)What color is original 10 mg norco ## There usually Watson & yellow.... ## @Cents, I believe Patrick (post #1) is right about Watson being the original manufacturer of the yellow oblong/oval shaped tablets. However, Actavis is now the company who took over and they altered the formula to make them white in their physical appearance. It was after this change that many patients also reported a significant difference in the tablet's overall effectiveness. I for one have not tried either, but if you take a look around the various related threads here on MedsChat, you may find several reviews that discuss this change from the original formula. It is widely thought that Actavis put less active in...

Doctors Willing To Prescribe Pain Meds In Orange County Ca
15 Replies RSS
I am 50 and work a hard labor job for 25 years. I am in chronic pain constantly. I want a better quality of life and to continue to work. I need a Doctor in Orange County, CA that can prescribe Norco for my pain. ## The main issue here may be due to the fact that you're asking for/looking for, a specific pain medication, especially one that contains a narcotic. Many doctors will see that as drug seeking behavior, it is something they are taught to watch out for in new patients. The best thing you can do is to see a new doctor and make sure that they receive a full copy of your medical records, so your records can speak for themselves. A doctor will be more likely to follow the information and prescribing practices of their fellow physicians. Does anyone know a good doctor in the are...

Can someone please tell me a doctor in the area who will treat my chronic pain? i do not have insurance and can no longer work due to my physical problems, my pain dr is too expensive and to far away. I am trying to find someone close who may possibly give me refills on my norco until i get disability and insurance. PLEASE HELP ## Hi, rk! I understand your dilemma due to the distance and expense, but I have to be honest and say that for now, you're likely better off staying with the doctor you already have. Due to the fact that not having insurance makes it harder to track someone, most pain management specialists will not treat an uninsured person and many pharmacies will not fill such prescriptions for them. There is too big of chance that there person could be doctor and pharmacy...

norco withdrawal

My husband's medication is missing he has been taking 6 to 8 20mg of norco at a time for 8 years for small fiber peripheral neuropathy. We don't know what happened to his pills. They are just gone. He is left with his Lyrics and Fentenal patch. What kind if withdrawals is he looking at suffering through? His legs are jumping and has hardly slept. Not to mention the pain. How long will it last? ## Hi angela, Sorry to hear about your husband's situation with losing his pills. I can't imagine how that might feel after being on them for 8 years and suddenly not knowing where they are... Have you checked all the random places they could end up (i.e. jacket pockets, laundry room, under the car seat, etc..)? At any rate, regarding opiate withdrawals...NIH.gov notates the follow...

Immediate switch from opiates to LDN
1 Reply RSS
Reluctant to switch from a 20 mg norco 3x a day for years to the Low Dose Naltraxone. I understand that the LDN may not have side effects in itself but I'm worried about withdrawaling from my Dr prescribed opiates. Does the LDN soften the withdral? ## Why are you being put on the Naltrexone? It's not an analgesic and if you take it too soon after taking opiates, it can actually throw you into dangerous precipitated withdrawals. I'm sorry, but I'm a not quite understanding what's going on here. Naltrexone is usually used to help people stay off of opiates or alcohol. Along with withdrawals, its other side effects, as listed by the FDA, may possibly include diarrhea, dizziness, drowsiness and stomach cramps.
