New Orleans Pain Dr.

Updated
Honey Says:

Hi. I'm looking for a pain management doctor in New Orleans/Westbank/etc area. I'm 27 and some places I called only accepts 35+. My Doc of 6yrs has cancer, so he transferred his patients. I recently found a Doc, but he doesn't prescribe soma, and reduced my pain meds. I rather just find a Doc in my area, than drive to BR each month for less meds. Thanks.

Many Doctors do not like to prescribe Soma. You are also taking Pain Meds too? As you know pain medicine and Soma go together. Doctors know this too. Now that Soma a Schedule IV medication, you will find it harder to obtain. Still possible.

Hi, Honey! I'm very sorry about the problems you're having.

Unfortunately, even if I researched doctors for you in that area, I have no way of knowing what age or type of patients they will accept.

And most of them are going to be reluctant to keep prescribing Soma, just as Eddy has said, due to the fact that it is becoming much more commonly abused and most will also want to reduce your pain medications. There have been many new restrictions put in place regarding what doctors can prescribe and how much they can prescribe to try to prevent over prescribing and improper prescribing.

Did the doctor you were transferred to refuse to help you?

Just so you know Soma became s Schedule II med in Louisiana August 1, 2014. That means no refills, no calls in and you must see your dr at least every 90 days. You must have new written rx every time you get it filled.

Louisiana Medicaid will Not pay for a Pain Management Dr. It is highly doubtful that you will find any dr that accepts Louisiana Medicaid too prescribe you narcotics for back pain.
