I am a pain suffer like maybe most of you out there. I recently lost my job and insurance so now from getting 90 pills a month prescribed to me to nothing its put me in a bad situation as you can imagine. I've actually resorted to getting illegal drugs on the streets just to function and find my self getting ripped off and sick again. any ways to make a long story short im going to keep it real and 100. I suffer from major back pain and for the past 4 or 5 years I been getting 90 pills of Dolophine 10mg prescribed to me which works great for me. it allows me to function and work, but now after loosing my job I am hurting. I cant afford to pay for the doctor visits to get the script so i'm relying on some of you nice people to help point me in the right direction... oh just so you know Dolophine is Methadone just that the word Methadone is so stigmatized to H addicts that I prefer to ask for it by Dolophine. I tried going to a few different doctors asking to fill a prescription and they all would not they all referred me to a methadone clinic were you have to go everyday to get dosed and its in liquid form not pills. The worst part of it is the type of people that attend those clinics. Forgive me if i'm being prejudice but most seemed like x street H addicts. I'm 47 years old and not that i'm to good, disgusted or afraid of that element just that I have a 12 year old daughter that like to go every where with me and I don't like having to take her with me and having here to wait around those types of people while her daddy is getting dosed. I prefer getting my monthly script in pill form sorry. I'm by far not a yuppity yuppity snotty nose holier than thou type of guy I'm actually a two time looser that has more than 12 years of his life taken by the state of California. I'm what some would say a CDC(California Department of Corrections) kid. County born State raised so please do not put me in that category. I'm down to earth easy going loyalty to friends and those that help me are my best qualities but have not giving birth to my best decisions based on those principles. Lets just say I ain't no snitch I'm just someone trying to get well and looking for some help.

Hi Julian! I'm so sorry about your situation. What about Obamacare, or, state coverage? If your income is low enough and u have a child, u may b eligible 4 Medicaid. Check these out, and, I hope u can get something.
