Sorry I meant to say I was subscribed oxycodone and am looking for a new doctor to subscribe the same 30mg roxicodone I was on since my dr has moved away from new York,si because my ms has been progressing and those meds are the only pain meds I can take I will travel to the city or any of the 5 burrows to find another doctor willing to subscribe me pain meds.

There are several pain management doctors and treatment centers listed in Staten Island, however, I don't have any information on their treatment protocols, what insurance they accept and etc. However, here is the listed contact information, so you can look into them:

Richmond University Medical Center
355 Bard Avenue, Staten Island - (718) 818-1234

Pain Relief Clinic
126 Wieland Avenue, Staten Island - (718) 966-8120

Anne Marie Stilwell MD
The H.H. Richardson House
45 McClean Avenue
Staten Island, New York 10305


When seeing a new doctor, make sure to take a complete copy of your medical records with you, or have them sent to their office, that way they can see what medications have and have not worked for you, as well as the results of any testing and etc.

Does anyone else have any suggestions?

I have had M.S. since '96 and know quite a few others with also. I have never heard of a Dr. willing to prescribe oxy's or roxy's for M.S. What does your neurologist suggest? My neuro prescribes my pain meds for M.S. with no need to go to a pain clinic. Most likely they will want to try you on other pain meds first because of the massive abuse that goes on with the oxy's, roxy's. Most of them are going to want you to try Neurotin, Lyrica, etc. which are the drugs for nerve pain which is the most common cause of pain in M.S. I know that there is pain with M.S. but a lot of Dr.'s don't seem to realize that. Good luck.

I also have MS I was diagnosed around 13 years ago when I was 20. I also now have leukemia that was given to me The doctors believe from a trial I was on for the MS. it was a trial where the patients with MS that where on one of The ABC drugs 70 percent of them died. I was one of The lucky ones that got a brand new diese that causes me a great deal of pain and suffering. Anyway what kind of doctor are you going to? YOu need a good neurologist and they will either give you something to her with your pain or send you to a anesthesiaoligist they are your pain doctors. BUt look if You are going in asking for oxy your screwing up as you have now been labeled as a drug seeker. Their are tons of good meds out there that will help you. I've been stage 5 ms for 9 years. On an eeg how they physically measure the pain your brain shows I am a 15 out of 20 for my normal everyday measurement. People pass out at 17. I live at a 15 at my best everyday. TRust me when I tell you I know pain. I've tried every drug out there some work better that the others OFcourse. Oxy is one of the better ones but most reputable docs will label you as drug seeking if that's all you ask for. YOu ask them for help first. You tell them YOu are in distress from pain and you can't live a comfortable life and you need help. ONce they actually believe you they are going to ask what You have tried before. That's when you hit them with the oxy. Show them proof and explain that your other doctor moved away. You can also ask your old doctor for a reference. NOw why did your other doc move? DId he have a bad name. If if did your not going to want to include him. You can also ask the company who makes the meds purdue if they can give you A list me doctors in your area that prescribe the meds you want. THey are usually helpful as they want to sell the meds. I'm using my phone for this and its hard to write sorry if anything is messed up.

That other person is correct most neuro's are going to want You to try all the nerve meds first. You combat that with they make you sleepy or put you in a weird state me mind. TEll them its hard for you to work and live a somewhat normal life if your sleeping all the time and when you can manage to stay awake your yelling at people and pretty much just want to rip everyone's head off. You need to find out why your doctor moved. Was he what they call a pill mill? Was he one me those doctors that gave anyone anything they wanted. Because they move around every couple of years. Even if if wasn't that way with you was he using you as one of the ligit patients for his dea reviews. If his practice was questionable its going to be better to distance yourself from him. When you TAlk to your new doc tell them the reason you left was he didn't offer you help. He just wanted to write your script take your money and that was it. He wasn't willing to try new things or even offer advice. DOctors like to hear that. MAkes you sound willing to try different things which they like because they get kickbacks from manufacturers and most have a god complex and like to hear their own voice.

Was "Need help's' question to me? If so,I'm sorry to say that I've had no success yet.Had a great pain management doc before I moved.Unfortunately,he doesnt know any docs in my new area.Its easy to show the legitimacy of my issues. Some doctors want me to try meds I've already tried,and others just dont believe in narcotics for chronic pain.Really hoping to get a referral from this site 1Best of luck to you,too.

oh,,,yeah,,,NY is a bit of a commute from Flint..
Sorry Eileen But for Terrence its perfect...Unfortunately not for me...If you are a senior citizen you have a MUCH easier time getting what you need,...The doctors dont seem to care that you might get addicted. Thats why my mother and my aunt have scripts.
