CeeCee Says:

I have been suffering from chronic pain for 7 years and have always been on and off pain meds from tylenol 3 to 90mg methadone at the worst of any ever taken. I decided to dose down & get off of methadone as I did not care for the "clinic" enviroment per say as I was using more for pain then for addicition. I found a dr that prescribed me the pain meds for breakthrough pain and the pill form of methadone 10mg was what I chose but now he is gone as he lost his license which sucks for me because NO ONE will give me anything, not even the methadone unless I go back to the stupid clinc and I so don't want that... DOES ANYONE KNOW OF A DR. that would prescribe anything or just something to get me through life with less pain? I am in the twin cities of Minnesota and I will drive if need be.

I'm not sure how much this will help you as this medication is nowhere near as pain reducing as what you have previously taken. But I was in a terrible car accident so I have sever head and neck pain constantly. I could get prescribed narcotics but I don't like the effect they have one me so instead I take Tramadol which is a non narcotic and you can refill your prescription online as it is not a controlled substance. Hopefully this medication will at least alleviate some of your pain. Good Luck!

Your best bet to get the help you need may be to try a pain management specialist.

Here is the contact information for several in the Minneapolis area, though I have no information on what medications they prescribe, if any and what insurances they accept:

Dr. Robert F. Birch 763-559-3779

Dr. Back Hong 612-347-3152

Dr. Bert Larson 612-725-2000

Dr. Lon J. Lutz 651-968-5465


Are there any other comments or questions?

I agree in some aspects with melnorth, tramadol is more powerfull that people believe though, it also has anti depressant effects which help with pain in which other pain Meds don't, I strongly recommend tramadol over Codine in the long term based on strength and it's far less constipating

Ultram or the generic tramadol is NOT a medication that is dispensed without a prescription. It's class has changed from IV to III

Brim Says:

@KeeKee: no, you're incorrect. Tramadol IS still available in most states without a prescription online and it is certainly NOT a schedule 3 drug. In a FEW states, it had gone from schedule 5 ( no need for rx), to schedule 4 (need an rx to order). Where did you get this information? Tramadol is nowhere near as strong as schedule 3 opiates...

Sammi Says:

@Brim: Tramadol has always been a prescription medication. It has recently been made into a schedule IV med due to it being habit-forming. You're mistaken.

@CeeCee: I realize this is very late, but try Dr. Constantin Starchook at HCMC/HFA interventional pain clinic. I saw him for a few years. He was great.

Brim Says:

@Sammi: actually, no I'm not. I'm aware it's always been by prescription only- unless it's online. Go ahead and google "order tramadol, no prescription" and look at the hundreds of sites that offer it in the us. You may fill out a consultation form and a doctor will approve the medication- which is not a prescription. I never said it was over the counter. And it never has been a schedule 3 drug. I'm aware some states have made it schedule 4. I'm a medical student and I know a lot about this drug. You misread my comment and did not research the availability of ONLINE tramadol.

I live in minneapolis w/ CP....stenosis in neck/4 detiorated discs AND rods and screws in my lumbar. I tolerate a lot of pain by only taking about 10 tramadol a day. I have reached the point where I need to go to the next level which is sched II stuff. Current doctor is a chicken. Any specific doctors in MPLS who will prescribe opiates for verifiable CP? Thanks.

I am in the same boat. I am awaiting a third back surgery and cannot get refills on meds...percoset low dose 3x a day does wonders for me. Nobody wants to give it to me. I am in Minneapolis also. I have one Dr, have not 'doctor shopped', have no other scripts, and just need this as a daily dose to manage pain. I have to go without it and then is BS. I just need a Dr that will see I am straight forward and just need that refill for a daily management.

After going through the horrible "merry go round" of searching for a pain management specialist, THANK YOU GOD I found a wonderful doctor!!!!
I went through a small in-hospital clinic. I did not have to sit in a waiting room with a group of people that "looked like drug seekers" and I was treated with respect as a patient SHOULD be. The doctor is VERY experienced with pain management and actually took the time to listen to me and READ my chart with all my records. I left the clinic in shock after the first few visits. I hope my doctor does not decide to retire or there is a change in management.(Both have happened to me before) Just wanted to share some good news for once....

CeeCee- I'm in the Twin Cities also, struggling with finding a compassionate and understanding doctor. Can you please share who your dr is? They are so few and far between, I'm just frustrated.

Ruby Says:

Jedecla: you are taking more tramadol a day than is legally prescribed. Tramadol isn't as weak as people seem to think, and ten is a lot of pills. The seizure threshold is lowered when you take tramadol, and any more than eight a day increases it exponentially. That means you are much more likely to have a seizure taking that many. Be very careful taking that number of tramadol a day.

Ruby Says:

Also jedecia, tramadol is level 4 in only a few states, and level 5 in others, so your next step isn't schedule 2; a doctor will try weaker rx's first.
