Need a chronic pain doctor

I live in Jasper, Alabama and have been on methadone for 15 years. It's the only thing that's helped during my chemo or when my ruptured disc are bothering me. The doctor I had just up and left and left all his patients hunting a new doctor. Does anyone know a doctor in or around Jasper or Birmingham that I can see that writes Methadone? ## Really, your best bet is to see a new doctor and make sure they get your medical records, so they can speak for themselves. Asking a doctor to prescribe a specific medication is often seen as being drug seeking behavior. Does anyone else have any suggestions to offer? ## Yeah, I'd definitely move from the deep South as fast as possible. Sorry about the comment Florida sounds like your closest bet to find an outpatient treatment center for...

dr. who can prescribe methadone

I have just moved to Harrisburg, PA. I found a pain management clinic who will prescribe my methadone (I have been taking Methadone for pain management for 5-6 years), however they have asked that I find another doctor. I was told by pain management clinic that I am the only patient they prescribe methadone for. Does anyone know of a doctor in the Harrisburg, PA area that prescribes methadone for pain management? ## Due to the severe addiction issues associated with it, it is not usually prescribed for pain, unless it has failed to respond to all other treatments. That said, it can be prescribed by any doctor with a valid medical license, finding one that is willing to do it, however, is going to be the tough part. When you go somewhere and are asking for a specific medication, especial...

methadose vs methadone

I have been on methadone maintenance several different times over the past twenty years. Previously, I always received powder methadone dissolved in Tang. On several occasions I found myself in a situation where my methadone was not available to me for a given period of time. While on methadone, the withdrawal symptoms did not even begin for approximately three days after ceasing administration. Now I am on a similar dose of liquid Methadose and I wake up in withdrawal every morning. What more do you need to know in order to be convinced that the two products are dissimilar?

I am from ND and in dire need of finding a doctor who can prescribe me methadone. I have been battling drug abuse for 10+ years and have gone through many treatment facilities. I have done my research and want to move on with my life by getting on a methadone program. PLEASE HELP! ## The problem with Methadone is that many people never truly get drug free, even after using the treatment programs. They often end up requirng a lifetime maintenance dose of it. You may be better of with Suboxone, which is fairly new, but has helped many people taper off of and completely beat their drug addiction. It contains the opiate Buprenoprhine.
