Due to the new regulations, if you require such a medication for long-term, ongoing management of chronic pain, you'll need to see a pain management specialist.

Are you still under the care of your PCP currently? If so, getting them to refer you to a specialist will likely be the quickest and easiest way to find the help you need.
