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.

Wow. I am appalled at the number of posts that come across here! Seeking meds by City and State name makes each one of you lool like drug abusers. So sad. So very sad!

Kev Says:

I need to agree - the constant "tell me where I can find a doctor to prescribe me ___" does make people in this forum look like drug-seekers; probably because many are. I've read numerous "my doctor retired" or "my pain clinic closed" posts. If your doc retired or your pain clinic closed for real, you'd be referred elsewhere. Some people even have the nerve to spell out the drug(s) they expect. A prescription for anything from a doctor is based on the doctor's decision, not the patient's decision. The doc went to school for a very long time; most know their stuff. Unfortunately, there is limited education regarding substance abuse in Med School - but it probably doesn't take long for a doctor to size up a drug-seeking patient.

I will be leaving Florida and move to MN in April. I have a townhouse in Eagan. I have had 4 back surgeries to include a fusion that did not do anything but to make my pain worse. I am really worried about finding a doctor who will continue to prescribe my current medication (MS-Contin) that I have been on for the last 12 years. If you know a doctor that I can go to please let me know. Thanks

Ask your doctor for a referral - stop doctor-shopping online. Your doctor will be able to hook you up with someone who specializes in pain management rather than prescription-writing.

First of all I do not have a doctor in Minn if I did I would not be asking if anyone in the area if they could make a suggestion. Am I doctor shopping? You bet! I also shop for shoes, food, clothes. I have dealt with chronic pain for over 25 years and the doctor I go to now has been my only doctor for 15 of them. When you move to a new place don't you ask friends, family ect who is a good doctor to see, or dentist or hospital. I basically do not know anyone in Minn to ask those type of question to. While getting my pain medication is important it is just as important to find a doctor who will take the time to see and listens to me along with a caring staff and well run office. If I had a heart problem and asked people on a web site who they see and are happy with there cardiologist would you criticize me then?

I agree Jennifer! Well said, I also have been looking for a doctor to manage my pain meds. My old doctor retired. I was in a serious car accident 21 years ago. The old I get the more painful life gets. I also believe I have fibromyalgia but to find a doctor that will not think your crazy is impossible. MAPS clinics are a joke. Please help I live in St Michael, MN if you know of a doctor that is not afraid to help their patients. Thanks for any help

BZD When I was taking the tramadol I was taking 3 pills a day. Hardly a large amount. Tramadol is not considered a opiate but it can be habit forming for some who take it. It also can cause major kidney damage after long time use ( a few years) Patients who take it long term should get blood work done every 3- 6 months to check for any kidney and other organ problems. When you buy it from some of these internet pharmacy (the safe ones will require a prescription from a doctor before filling) you really do not know how old the medications or even it is the right medication.- just because it looks like the drug it still could be fake.

I need a north SD/San Diego doctor to prescribe Norco. I've tried the stronger stuff, and hate it. I'm losing my doctor and have Medicare.

I've been on this for 2 years successfully.

Does anyone know a kind doctor? I've been looking...what a nightmare!

I have tons of records to support my injuries.

Thanks.

I tried that a few years ago.

You get these weird pills from South America with little pain reliever that other stuff that messes with your head.

Is your source for brand name American drugs? Have you gotten them yet?

Mine were green. Beware these!

Tramadol actually works. I have chronic pain in my lower back left buttox and down left leg due to sciatica from bulging disk pinching my sciatic nerve and disk degenerative disease in my spine. I am in constant pain everyday it does not subside and when i took tramadol it helped with most of the pain and didnt give me the sedating effects that narcotics do and also lasted for a lot longer than percocet does! but keep in mind that it is not particularly safe. It can cause seizures and all kinds of health problems so make sure you discuss it with your doctor before you think about taking it. Best of luck to you!

KJB-YOU DON UNDERSTAND THE TERM DOCTOR SHOPPING.

This is when you go to multiple doctors and pharmacies.for meds without disclosing it.

People here are looking for ONE good doctor who wont make the guinea pigs or leave them suffering. A doctor who actually believes that the patient has knowledge of their own needs.

Please don't judge. You have no idea what different levels of nightmare some are going through.

KJB Says:

I COMPLETELY understand what "doctor shopping" means. It CAN mean going to multiple doctors, yes. It can also mean hunting down the one doc that will write that precious Rx for the drug we want - even though we've seen 100 doctors before this one who have deemed the drug we're seeking as inappropriate.

I am not judging - I am stating facts. Addiction is a nasty disease. We justify our need for the substance at all costs - sometimes without even knowing it. So, I wish you well on your "medication hunt". And I hope to God that you receive whatever the proper treatment for whatever your condition truly is. Just please remember - pain is a signal that something is wrong ... it's not a signal that we need opiates. Think about it - these docs aren't being cruel necessarily. Maybe they're just being honest with you and you don't want to hear or face the truth,

Kev Says:

There must be some reason why your doctor is not willing to provide you with enough medication to cover the 4-month wait. Or some reason s/he hasn't referred you to a hospital that can continue your current meds. Like - perhaps a revocation of a DEA license? Docs that excessively write Rx's under suspicious circumstances do get their licenses pulled. True pain management docs - regardless of the number of prescriptions for narcotics they right - don't lose their license. Perhaps it's YOU that needs to think more clearly (when your opiate haze wears off maybe) about your own situation and the situation of others. Med seeking isn't pretty to watch in person ... it's pathetic to see it in writing.

Kevin and KJB- MY insurance changed with the ACA. I CA, a doctor can't write for more than a 30 day supply without a visit.

I have NEVER abused my meds. I'm not an addict and most people here arent.

If you don't have chronic pain, why are you here? What are you contributing to help?

I am going on 8 weeks without meds and have tried every drug option she's suggested these years. She's clearly charted every horrid side effect, some sent me to the ER!!

Don't insult other members when perhaps you have the luxury of job insurance and you got lucky and your meds work.

Not that I have to justify myself to you.

Your judgment isn't helpful and others have different lives.

If you can't help, just go away...
