Primary care doctor

I have been on 4 bottles per month for over 6 years. My primary care doctor no longer sees patients and his nurse practitioner sees all of his patients. The nurse practitioner is now saying she will only write a prescription for 2 bottles a month. Any suggestions for a new primary care doctor that will help? I live in Tennessee. ## That is very odd, usually the actual doctor has to see you every few months, in most states. Can you post back and be more specific of the dosage you were taking? The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation, and dry mouth. Have you asked about seeing the actual doctor?

The Stadol is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such ...

I am getting Botox treatments to reduce the number of headaches, and am on Imitrex (which works if I catch the migraine early enough, and Topomax. ## No, there are new regulations that restrict what general practitioners and surgeons can prescribe, why they can prescribe it, how long they can prescribe it and how much they can prescribe.

I would be willing to travel pretty much anywhere within a 6 hour radius of Tyler. The other meds help, but the Stadol is the only med over the past 36 years that has truly worked as a rescue med for the migraines when they become severe.
