Doctors Who Will Prescribe Pain Medication

Leopold Says:

I have chronic disc, bone, nerve damage have many other nerve, bone and tendon damage. Had injections, surgery and nothing helps. Going to a pain clinic in Rhode Island and love my doctor but wait is extremely long. Don't know how to find another doctor in area who will continue to prescribe Meds on and need to cope and quality of life. My doctor understands and can't find any doctor in area who will prescribe: oxycontin, oxycodone, Xanax and Valium. Are there any doctors in RI who will prescribe same and manage pain and increase when needed?how do I find ? HELP

HI, Leopold! Sorry about the problems that you're having and I do understand…

But, with all the issues that have been going on over on the east coast with new laws, prescribing restrictions, issues getting meds, limits on what doctors can prescribe and for how long….the best thing you can probably do is just stick it out right where you are. Compared to a long wait to get in for an appointment, you could end up faced with not having your medications prescribed, at all, or not being able to find a pharmacy that will fill them from a new doctor.

Things have really been crazy due to the very high rates of theft, diversion and etc. on the east coast, so the crackdowns have been occurring left and right.

Why are you on both Xanax and Valium? That's essentially doubling up on the same medication.

I am in the same boat, I have many of the same Health Issues as you have, I have had no luck since my primary MD, said that he could no longer prescribe 2 medications for me, I was wondering which pain clininc you go to, I do not take anything that strong, just Fiorocet and Fioranal W Codeine for when the pain is intollerable.
I would really appreciate it, if you could let me know where you go, I tried one place, but they would not even give me injections, which have not helped in the past, because they said that I needed surgery for the 4 disks in my back, this is not an option for me at this time, as my daughter is not able to get around yet on her own.
I look forward to hearing from you

Hey, I need Help. I was taking 10/525 Mg tabbs everyday and a lil oxy whenever I could get my hands on it. I was taking pills for about 8 yrs off and on I've been thru it all. I'm24 yrs old. I want a nnormal life. I finally went to the Methadone clinic. I was taking up to 60mg of Mthadone everyday, that was the highest I went. I finally wanted to detox around my 8 th month in going to the clinic. I couldn't afford it any longer. Now I'm 8 days clean and I can't sleep.. my legs hurt. I feel weird. I want to sleep better.

I really hate the leg pain issue. I know everytime i detox from oxymorphones (opana 10 mg) and oxycodone (30mg), no matter how small the amount, I wont feel right, I'll be drained no matter how much i sleep, but the worst of all is the aches in my legs that wont go away no matter what i do, i feel your pain brother. to avoid this, make sure you have a few pills to ween yourself off, even if its just one for the morning, and one at night..this wont help feed your need to feel high, but it will help rid you of the leg pain mostly. Good luck to you, Opiates are a pain. Doomed if you dont, doomed if you do. Ive definitely seen the dark side and have witnessed how bad things can get. No one really understands no matter how much they preach unless theyve been there. Good luck to you

I have disc problems myself and there is no pain in this life that compares to that methadone withdrawal. I am also looking for a considerate doctor but there is no way to get any information online, you have to go by word of mouth. some pharmacists will give you a heads up since they know whos doing what.

6,790 Letters and Emails Sent So Far

There are many Doctors who label their patients unfairly, demean these patients and degrade them because they are victims of chronic life long pain. This is archaic medicine and does more harm than one can imagine. Physicans are afraid to treat patients who are victims of pain. The DEA targets them and instills fear in how they choose to treat their patients and what they prescribe. More and more, Doctors are refusing to treat their patients who have chronic pain. Patients are far too often considered "Malingering" or "Doctor Shopping".

Doctors far too often refuse to even communicate with these sufferers and label them as a LTDU ( Long Term Drug User) This is unfair, harmful medicine, and and causes llife long damage, both physically and mentally. It has effects on family, friends, co-workers and often causes the sufferer to withdraw from society. Through no fault of the patient, they withdraw from daily activities with their spouses, family and friends.

Much like the Abortion issue, you force these victims of pain into back door alleyways, store front pain clinics and worse. They receive no counseling on how to take their medication and often don't know what they are taking. Like in the past, by treating victims of pain this way, you force them into seeking help and relief outside of the Law. It is one issue to target illegal clinics but another issue entirely to target Physicians who should be allowed and should be treating their patients who have pain. Instead, Physicians are forced, out of fear of prescribing pain medication, to send their patients off to some "Unknown" pain clinic where they suffer yet more humiliating labels and discrimination. Pharmacists often feel the need to "interfere" and embarass the patient when they pick up their medications. They are treated like second or third class human beings.

Why is it that Doctors are no longer treating the 'Whole Patient?" Not addressing the underlying causes of chronic pain? There are many instances when there is NO clear cause for pain but that is not to say it doesn't exist. Pain receptors malfunction. Injuries can cause pain years later. Elderly patients who suffer every remaining day of their lives are told by their Doctors' that "They are concerned about a possible addiction". What happened to the quality of their life? Their right to live their life to live without debilitating pain? Their only option may be to consider suicide? The damage caused is a horror. Elderly commit suicide rather than live with this pain. Physicians are taught (since the very beginning of medical school) that any patient requesting pain medication is to be Scrutinized" and to be "Wary" of them especially if they tell you they can't take anti-inflammatory drugs, that is a sure "SIGN" of addiction. I was told this by my own Doctor. "What to watch out for when a patient requests help with their pain." They actually have a class for new Doctors on how NOT to treat patients.

Andrea, the only thing you can do is go and talk to a dr and be sure and take your medical records from your previous dr with you. A dr has to get to know you and then they have their own way of prescribing meds. If you're calling and asking about the Pain Management drs just writting rxs, all of them will say they only do injections to try and cut down on the number of drug seekers as new patients.

Has anyone found a legit pharmacy where we can get narcotics? I can't find a doctor to give them to me since my PCP cut me off. He was giving me Percocet for 1 year and decided to cut me off. He wants me to go to a pain doctor which I did. You can't find a pain doctor to prescribe narcotics for fibromyalgia. I am so angry at my PCP for putting me in this situation. I suffer daily from fibromyalgia. Anyone who has been successful getting oxycodone, please post how to do this

You are not going to find a doctor that will help you like before. Want change ? Change the law! Sign the above petition and share. Maybe Medicare will listen because they have been paying a lot more for all the injections, test, etc.

Hi Leopold I have to say that you should stick with that Pain Management MD, their is no-one and I mean no-one that will prescibe all that, I am looking for someone myself, the last PHP that I went to was giving me one pain pill a day, and cut it to 1 everyother day. Would you please let me know who your pain management MD is. Ihave 3 herniated disks, extreme pain in my left hip, you can actually see all the bone loss, migraines and well I guess I don't need to go on. I did get the name of someone, but I don't know how he is going to be, I have an appointment in 2 weeks, so I really have to suffer until than and it wears me out. I want to clean my apartment, vacumne, clean the floor, all I can manage to do is sweep it and the pain is so bad I am in tears and have to lay down. I would really appreciate if you could tell me who your Pain Management MD is, and I can let you know how I make out with this doctor.
Look forward to hearing from you
