New Mexico Doctors That Prescribe Pain Meds

Updated
James Says:

High I moved to Hobbs, New Mexico for work. I have high blood pressure and been on valium bid for anxiety for ten or more years; also lortab 10 qid for back and neck problems. I'm hoping that someone can help me. I have enough meds for two months so I'm looking early. My doctor in Louisiana is moving to Florida after treating me for 6 years. I also have diabetes type two. Does anyone know of a reliable doc here? I don't mind traveling a few hours. Thanks.

Hello, James! How are you?

Due to the regulations that were put in place last year, if you require medications like Valium and Lortab on a long-term ongoing basis, you'll need to see a specialist, now. A regular PCP is no longer able to prescribe them for you.

Can anyone suggest a good PCP in that area that could refer him to the appropriate specialists?

Both medications carry the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, irritability and headache.

There are no new laws that state that only specialists can presribe certain meds. It may not be as easy as it use to be to find a regular dr who will, but there are no laws stating they can't.

Despret Chronic Pain Says:

I'm from Albuquerque New Mexico. My doctor just retired. I have chronic pain. I have plates in my face, I have had a hip fusion, neck and shoulder surgeries. My hips and my back are deteriorating. Also have fibromyalgia. I'm on oxygen. I was exposed to asbestos. Now I have lung issues and several kidney cysts. I can't even get out of bed. I'm so depressed and my anxiety is getting worse. And my doctor would just give 10mg Oxycodone. I had to take 3 three times a day. And he would not go higher. The nights are the worst for me. Can't do it no more. I need a real doctor that will listen to me and understand me. I see people getting 30 mg and nothings wrong with them. They get it just to sell them. That's what hurts me. I don't understand it and it's not fair for people like us that are honest and really need them.
