I really need to try to find a new pain doctor that is closer to me. I love the doctors there they have been wonderful to me. I have been going for 5 years and now for the last 8 months I have driving myself and I really have not built up enough strength after having neck surgery. The problems I have now wont go away and I just cannot function normally I have problems with walking very far, I cant stand up more than a few minutes, and on a really good day I can curl my hair. Methadone has helped me more than any other medication, and it don't hurt my stomach I have learned to accept it I just wish it wasn't so hard to get the medication that helps me to function and not hurt so bad surely there is a few good doctors that care about what helps the patients at least that is what I am hoping for" doctor in Kentucky that can give me the medication that I already know it helps me and gives my daughter and family more of me because when I am hurting all the time I cant get even get out of bed" so please let me know if you know where their is a doctor that prescribes methadone in Kentucky I would really appreciate it sorry you had to listen to my rambles

Hello, Chaistity! How are you doing? I am very sorry that you're in so much pain.

Any doctor can prescribe Methadone, but there is no listing of which ones will or will not prescribe it that I can refer to for you. You really just need to see a doctor and let them see your medical records, so they can speak for you. If you go in asking for a specific medication, most will view that as being drug seeking behavior.

Additionally, due to the regulations that were put in place last year, if you require a medication like this on a long-term, ongoing basis, you'll need to see a pain management specialist, a regular doctor will not be able to prescribe it for you.

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.

Can anyone recommend a good doctor there?

I'm in a bad situation. The State has gotten involved and even pain clinics cannot help anymore. I have arthritis, fibromyalgia, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, carpal tunnel, chronic tendonitis,vl and my chronic pain is constant and in so many areas that I used to be bedridden, and couldn't even fix my hair or take a shower or do my housework. For 8 yrs Ive been going to pain management and gad my life back. When the state got involved last year my PM had to reduce my prescriptions from 100 mcg fentanyl patch to 50. Now I got a letter telling me that due to new policies the 200 milli equivalent to morphine that I am currently receiving they will be reducing it to 120. That is 60% less and I'm already hurting more since the reduction last yr. Is there anyone in knoxville still able to help people with their pain? This is so wrong !! 8 yrs I've never failed drug panel or pill counts, obeyed all rules. Please help. I either need.50 to 100 fentanyl continued or I could go back to 40 MG opana which helped me for over 5 yrs. Who can I go to?

Re: Angel (# 2)

Money should be no problem. Methadone is very Cheap. Years ago, when I was on 120mgs a day( 10 yrs ago) it was only $63.00 cash. Now I am on 5 mgs and it's like no cost at all. Good luck Sweets
