Hello, Rasa! How are you?

Due to the changes this month that switched this to a schedule 2 medication, most doctors are now refusing to prescribe it.

And regardless of that, if your require such a medication on a long-term ongoing basis for the treatment of chronic pain, you'll need to see a pain management specialist due to the new regulations that were put in place last year.

Do you currently have a PCP that you see regular that may be able to refer you to someone? That might be the quickest and easiest way to find the help you need.

Does anyone know of a good doctor in that area?

This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

I have hears University Pain does prescribe. I would assume that they do U/a need a current Fl. MRI/Cat scan . There are no pill mills. I don't have a problem helping ppl with chronic pain to a pain dr. that does med management. The process is very strict and if you are an abuser you will get caught. Ive seen other posts where one is saying why are youjust putting the dr's name up? what happened to just keep your mouth shut don't overload the clinic. IMHO i believe that for every new patient there are some that get fired. You can get fired for getting a drug arrest, my pm checks every month.

I've been a fibromyalgia, degenerative joint and disc disease, and chronic back pain sufferer for the past 15 years, due to many long years of hard factory work, and however else these pain and degenerative issues are caused. I lived in VA and was getting my Methadone and Duregesic patches for 15 years, but my spouse was transfered to Daytona Beach in March 2015, and I can no longer find a pain dr that is willing to prescribe me even the minimum amount of my meds, even though I have been able to find a pharmacy to fill them, which was a chore itself. Can anyone tell me if there are any drs that prescribe these pain meds near me? I have recent x-rays from here in Florida and bloodwork. Any positive information would be helpful. Thank you.

Goldilocks-I was referred by interventional dr. in Kissimme to go to Dr. John Carrozzella but when calling his office not there-got recording phone # disconnected. Also checked google online & found no new phone #'s so not sure when you heard that he was good dr. prescribing but it must be recent he closed since my apt with other referring dr. was about 3 weeks ago. Do you by chance have new info about this?
Thanks,

It may also be helpful to get copies of your medical.records from the Dr where you use to live. Although you may not be able to find a Dr that will rx you what you took before.

BL Says:

Chris, look in Florida Revised Statues regarding laws governing Physicians and also Pharmacy Laws. The drs say it because the patients won't argue with them. Even if you take a copy of the laws proving any licensed physician with a dea number and CDs license can prescribe pain meds for any patient that doesn't mean they will. It is each drs individual choice what they prescribe. You also have no way of knowing what a Dr prescribes other patients. You can also go to the DEA website and read the manuals for physicians and pharmacists regarding Schedule II meds. I've seen signs up in drs offices saying they don't prescribe pain meds and I've seen several of these same drs prescribe pain meds for regular patients. The signs are to cut down on drug seekers.
