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!!

Yes, I am having the same problem. All the clinics in Louisiana want to do the liquids and I don't want that. I have been on 30 mgs of methadone a day for cronic pain and arthritis, hydrocodone 10/500 and my xanax. Could you please help me with a dr.? Please.

sasha smith,

Louisiana Medicaid (BayouHealth) will not pay for Pain Management. Only if you have Medicare and Medicaid, not just Medicaid.

You're taking Methadone for pain management ? Louisiana won't pay for Pain Management. You may be able to find a PCP to rx it, but I doubt it. You will also need to give a new dr permission to get your old medical records.

I was a drug addict in the 70s through 95. When I say addict , I AM FROM NEW ORLEANS AND BACK THEN WE WERE MAKING DOCTORS, THATWOULD WRITE SCRIPTS FOR PERCODANS, CETS, ETC.THEN I STARTED BUYING DILAUDID. I WAS FIXING BY AGE 17. I AM NOW IN MY MID 50s, REALIZED I WAS STRUNG OUT YEARS LATER, AND GOT ON METHADONE TO HELP ME QUIT USING. THE PROBLEM THERE IS, METHADONE IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO GET OFF OF. I WAS ON 10 YEARS, GOT THE ITCH MOVED TO NEW YORK WHERE I WAS DOING 6 $10.00 BAGS OF BOY A DAY, AND WAS ON A CLINIC AND WAS DOING 65mgs. Daily. I FINALLY AFTER REACHING AGE 45, I COULD NO LONGER BE A RIPPER &RUNNER. POLICE, JAIL, SO NOW I AM ON100 mg. DAILY, I HAVE TO GO TO THE CLINIC EVERY 2 WEEKS, BUT NOW HAVEO NO USE FOR THE NEEDLE, AS THAT WAS JUST TO GET ME LOADED. I CAN FUNCTUNE ON THE DONE, BUT THE PAIN MANAGMENTS THAT POPPED UP GOT SCARED AWAY BECAUSE OF IGNORANT PEOPLE THAT COULDNT OR WOULDNT FOLLOW THE RULES. ITS BEEN 18 YEARS SINCE I FELT LIKE AN ADDICT, BUT THIS STATE NEEDS TOGET THERE HEADS OUT OF THE 1950s. PEOLPE ARENT JUST JUNKIES, ANYMORE. AT LEAST, I KNOW IM NOT. I AM ADDICTED TO METH, BUT MY HUBAND ANDI PAY OVER 700.00 A MONTH FORTHE CLINIC IN MARERRO. THE POLITICIANS HERE NEED TO STAND UP TO WASHINGTON, AND ALLOW THE LA. CLINICS TOTAKE INSURANCE, MEDICAID, CARE. IAM DISABLED, FROM FOURTH DEGREE BURNS ONMY LEGS, AND RUPTURED ANDTORN LIGAMENTS IN MY BACK. WE DONT MIND THE RULES AT THE CLINIC, NEED THEM BUT WE NEED TO RALLY, FOR INSURANCE AT THE CLINICS IN LA.!!
