Hello, Timothy! How are you? I'm very sorry that you're in pain.

However, if you're going to doctors and asking for a specific medication, that could be creating part of your problem right there, since doctors are taught to view that as being drug seeking behavior. I understand that's not your intent, it's just the medication that works for you, I'm just letting you know how doctors view this.

Since this medication also became a schedule 2 drug this month, if you require it on a long-term ongoing basis, you'll need to see a pain management specialist. A general practice doctor won't be able to prescribe it.

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.

Do you have a PCP that you see regularly that might be able to refer you to someone? If so, that would most likely be the quickest and easiest way to find the help you need.

Can anyone recommend a good doctor in that area?

Lived in Medford you have to see a pain specialist or go to the methadone clinic.

Only a pain specialist " won't be afraid". I'm surprised in Medford that you got any at all.

Other than habit forming, have they advised you of any other side effects? Habit forming is many times worth taking the risk when you are in excruciating pain. I am certain doctors themselves would. It is hard to physically and mentally handle the debilitating pain. Many times doctors do not take that Into consideration. In the event they deny the temporary relief, you should then demand an immediate relief with alternative medication or fashion to ease the pain. The answer to the root of pain is imperative. Without these answers, they have no right to deny you of an immediate and temporary relief. You may have heard fibromyalgia being the case. Many times doctors rule fibromyalgia which is simply an ephunisim for not knowing what the heck is wrong with you, according to my friend who happens to have a PhD in neurophysiology. My pain was your typical fibromyalgia diagnose. Rules without having an mri done, which I strongly demand for 2 1/2 years. Not until I offered to pay for the darn scan out of pocket. Two days later, I surprisingly got a letter of approval for the bombardment of x-rays. As you may have guessed, It revealed damage to my L5. My advice to you is to exhaust all their possibilities until you get diagnosed, treated and until you are pain free. It is unethical for doctors to arbitrary sentence you to a cruel and unusual punishment based on their own inferences and nor medical facts. I encourage you to act ratther quickly, as pain can drive you crazy. Take it from me who has gone through seven doctors (being transparent forwarding my medical records to each and every doctor.) Seven doctors and Perhaps over 150 years of medical knowledge, did not pinpoint the root of my pain. It only took three minutes of a YouTube yoga video (what I strongly believe and makes sense) to find the origin of my back pain. Hamstrings is the answer. I recently ran into this video and yet have to educate this group of incompetent so called doctors. Demand your pain medications! On the other hand, if you have healed and still need the meds, you may have a dependency problem and that should be addressed as well. I hope you get the answer to the root of your pain.
