Hi Beth,

I'm really sorry to hear about your current health challenges. Is there any way you could qualify for medi-cal? I think your income needs to be below a certain number, or if you are unemployed you should also be able to qualify for state-assisted medical care.

Please don't give up - there are always options to finding proper medical care, even if you don't have insurance. There are medical clinics for such situations in most cities. Good luck and please keep everyone posted with your findings. Do you have any other questions or information to add? Please post back if you do...

I fully understand the need for correct medication when dealing with chronic pain. I myself am a breast cancer survivor and I have been on oxycontin for the past 8 years now. Things are starting to get better though. I understand that docs are not prescribing hardly anything anymore, thanks to all the junkies out there.

Best Wishes to all,

You can get high blood pressure meds (Lisinopril) for 4.00 per month or 10.00 for 3 months at the Target Pharmacies.

Methadone is prescribed at pain clinics for chronic pain. I have been on it for about 3 years after my second rods were placed in my back. It doesn't mess up your head like hydrocodone, and you don't get the liver killer, acetaminophin.

methadone was the only drug that didn't affect my brain the way other opiates did. I started with 20mg a day then after about a year I went on 30mg for 4 years and after that long it did not help the pain, so to get off I reduced the dose by 2 1/2 mg per month with no withdrawal effects. I have pain 24/7, but live with it. After having rods done in my back twice, a plate in my neck and a botched hip replacement and in need of a knee replacement for 2 years now, I'm surviving with the help of a relationship with Jesus and weekly visits to my chiropractor and many food supplements. The drugs will kill you sooner than living with the pain.

Am just posting a reply to a great deal of ignorance I just got through reading here. For you folks that are asking for a pain med that doesnt have the crap associated with it like "acetaminophens etc.that damage so many things in your body then a couple of you said some profound things. Methadone. If you care to do the research and I recommend one that "really" has pain all the time should you will find that it is one of the least invasive substances you can use to help yourself, Now, if you are looking for EUPHORIA or wanting to get high then perhaps you should continue licking or what the helll ever folks do to get to the "drug" that is perhaps coated or whatever inisde of drugs like oxycontin or other timed released things that get you high. I laugh when I read all the complaints about some company that had to put special ingredients to keep the junkies from injecting them or whatever and how these folks were mad because they were having to do something to (as in someones statement above "GET OFF") by breaking down some timed release coating. If that is what you are doing then you need a damn psychiatrist and not a pain doctor. You are the very people that are making it hard for folks with plausible problems that need help to walk etc. Not help to walk screwed up or clean up your house quicker, or whatever. I am so frustrated hearing folks that have no medical problem except addiction trying to lie, fraud or whatever just to get meds that folks with legitimate reasons have hard times getting. The doctors at pain clinics ( some of them) save folks at the end of their line every day but folks wanting to "get off" screw that up for everyone. Why dont you go out and get hooked on heroin if that is what your after and leave the legitimate patients a chance. If you are truly in chronic pain and are trying to work and not live every f ing day of your life hurting like hell then methadone is a legitimate response. I have taken it for 14 years and it allows me to function. And yes I did a great deal of reasearch and while methadone when not taken properly or for the folks wanting to get high then know this. You screw around with methadone it will kill you. But to listen to your doctor and go by his knowledge instead of the knowledge some of you think you have and have a legitimate reason for taking it then it can really help.No you dont get high on it, It just does one thing for pain patients and it does it well. It gets rid of your pain. As for the unfortunate souls that said it turned them into zombies? Somehow I feel like they fit that description long before pain became an issue. Just educate yourself tremendously. And for the other ones that are looking to get high, go get heroin,and quit screwing around with the medical profession, which will get you away from folks that really need these meds to get BY not to get HIGH. As for the lady that is offering to sell her "extra" pills I thought I had heard it all before but I guess not. Extra my a**, this is the worst part of the problem, How is it that you can sit back, screw up other folks lives without a care in the world, making it hard for the ones that need meds and yet you have the nerve to profit off of others problems. Is money worth that much to you Marge????? You just need to be thankful Im not working in Federal Law Enforcement anymore. You are tempting me to come out of retirement.
