I'm sorry, but if he has already been in a clinic on their maintenance program, then he will have to continue going there. Under current law, a regular doctor cannot prescribe it for addiction or maintenance treatment and with the fact the he has been going to such a clinic noted in his records, their hands are tied.

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.

Is there anything else I can help with?

there is an issue but its not the issue the first guy that responded to you said about "because your husband was on a methadone clinic for addiction" he will not be able to get methadone from a private doctor for pain...that is not true because methadone clinics and private doctors arent even linked to begin with and there are no records that follow you when you get off of a methadone clinic lol.. unless of course you want to go tell the doctor that you were an addict on the methadone program before.but the thing is 40mg orange biscuits as we called them in new york and 40mg wafers have not been made for about 6 years now for pharmacy use but some methadone clinics still use them.docs. can't prescribe them anymore because pharmacies don't make them anymore like i said..so when getting methadone from a private doctor they only write for 5mg pills and 10mg pills....

If you can come to Tampa this doc takes medicare not Medicaid and a few others it s called genesis medical clinic. I think this doc Wil write 2 10 mg s a day but then you get 4 breakthrough meds a day... so maybe oxy 10, 20 30 or Dillard, just tell doc u were on 40 of methadone and he can adjust the breakthroughs to be effective as the 40 mg. So you would get 20 a day of methadone but then again if u were to take records( which u proxy don't) the breakthroughs should even out that 20 mg missing. Good luck I know th r y require a current mri. The cheapest one u can get is 250.00 this doc will refer u there and it's 250 the first visit is for consult. Being th hat u r traveling maybe set up to stay 4 days get the consult and referral for mri.. call ahead first too, try and get mri very next day and the mri report sometimes within 24 but 24_48 hours then get back into doc and take ur :-/ and get ur scrips

Hi - I've lived in Atlanta for 9 years; same PCP, same psychiatrist. I fell getting up during the night on January 19th (2015). Went to ER in ATL - referred to spine and pain specialists who were booked up to 6 weeks ahead. PCP couldn't get me in either. Finally referred to one who looks like he's about 15, and is certified to do one spinal procedure -which he demanded I undergo. I refused. I have a current MRI showing a herniated disc - L1-S5. Screeching in pain. I'm 51 - husband died suddenly 2 years ago and I have no support network. My elderly father flew to ATL to pick me up and drive me to Marco, FL, to follow up. Kid Dr. prescribed Oxycodone 20s. I can't take NSAIDs or Tylenol because of liver disease (not cirrhosis- a freak thing) about 3 years ago. Where do I go? I haven't slept for 5 days.

You have no insurance? And no programs closer to you? if I were you I would NOT hold onto the thought of another DOCTOR that's going to provide you that kind of medication. You would definitely have to find a suboxone program. There has to be places around you to also help with your pain. Check them out. Good luck.
