Sara Says:

I have been taking 120 mg of methadone for approximately 5 years. My husbands job transferred us from Florida to Louisiana where I found a pretty good pain doc. He is now running scared and wants to take me off of methadone. Methadone has given me a good quality of life; I am able to work and be a productive member of society. My doctor is unwilling or unable to assist me in finding a new doctor who will continue my meds. Oh yeah, I have been the route of blocks and injections and gotten little if any relief. I'm tired of being branded a drug seeker-I have years of medical records that back up my claims and verify the dosages that I've been on-what drug seekers have this kind of back up? I am looking for a Louisiana doctor, but am willing to travel (within reason of course). Please help!!

Hi Everyone - I also live in Louisiana & I think I have some good news! I have information about a few good doctors in Louisiana that will help y''all. I just need to know what city or town you live in, how far you're willing to travel & a few other things. I'm on methadone & have been for almost 7 years. I am so sorry ALL of you are going through this. I'll be praying for you. Unfortunately, they will hide my email address if I type it out (for my protection), I'm gonna give it to y'all, but it's going to look weird. You can reach me at- {edited for privacy} ~ I hope y'all have a good day!

I Am very surprised that you are getting any relief at all,methadone is a very good pain killer at first,after some time depending on dose and the individuals tolerance,once it plugs up your opioid receptors,in your brain nothing works for pain,that is in the opiates,you either have to stop the methadone for a while then narcotic pain med will work,that is why i find it very hard to understand that it is working for you at all,i have been on the program for 14 years and am now dealing with some very bad pain i have tried very high doses of oxy,morphin,diladid,fentynal up to the 100 mcg patch with absolutely no relief,,i then had to resort to tylenol staite tylenol,and i got more re leave,that all of the above,and now i have compromised my liver,so now because i will have this pain for the rest of my life,the only thing that i can do is start a detox on the meth,that is the reason they use meth to treat opioid addiction .I hope with my horrible grammar that some of this is understand able. thankx for listening.

I have same problem as Sara & Knot does about finding real help for a real problem I've had with spinal damage since I was 25 when I first broke my back. Doctors think taking the pill is worse than dealing with pain. Of-course their not dealing with any pain. My doctor cares more about he's cows (that he has for tax deduction) than he cares for his patents. What can a person do to find a doctor who's willing to live up to that hippocratic oath they take to become a doctor. Please help if you can.

Thomas Says:

I use to go to a doctor in Galiano La. At the Lady of the Sea clinic, Dr. Walter Byrdsal and he was giving me 150mg a day. But I decided to quit and did a subutex detox in his office for a few days but it did not help my detox, I suffered for almost 3 weeks, thought I was going to loose my mind, but I finally got through it and will never get on methadone again. I've detoxed off of oxycontin and it was bad, but only for a few days. Methadone gets in your bone marrow and it is a slow gradual intense detox that i never want to experience again.

M-Man. Can you please help me. I and my wife have been rx'd m-done for 20 years. I couldn't afford our dr in Lafayette anymore and we have insurance. Is your dr taking new patients ? I have my med records and history, also pharmacy printouts. We have been trying to find help for a month. I get turned away at the front desk. Been to er and was turned away. I'm not an addict or never have been. Have 20 years of drug test results. Very desperate.
