zohydro for pain managment

WHAT PAIN CLINICS IN MS OR LA PRESCRIBE ZOHYDRO ## Hello, Deanna! How are you? I'm sorry, but there is no listing of doctors according to what they will or will no prescribe that I can refer to for you. Additionally, if you call around to doctors and ask them to prescribe a specific medication, they will see that as drug seeking behavior and most won't even let you get in the door for an appointment. Do you currently have a PCP that you see regularly? If so. having them refer you to someone may be the easiest way of getting the help you need. 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. Can anyone recommend a good doctor in that area? ## Need to find doctor... ...

pain managment in Tennessee

I too have been thrown away by Covenant Pain Management. Its odd that my last visit was in July, after that I was put out to dry after almost 10 years with the same Dr. This is one PAIN in the ass. I have back problems, surgery in 1996. Then an auto accident in 2000 that left me with a metal rod in my femur, metal in my left arm, arthritis in knee, hip hand ect. Nobody gives a damn about the individual, just let the insurance companies and Government make the medical decisions. They have done such a great job running the country and the new National Healthcare program, I am sure they are qualified to make these medical decisions, like I am qualified to fly a fighter jet. Sign me up. Lets get these crooks out of office and let Doctors do the medical decisions. ## Dr here in Knoxville and... ...

Knoxville Pain Managment Raided By FBI

Last Tuesday my (along with a lot of others Im sure) pain management center was raided by the FBI (also other clinics) and the staff were always very strict (Current MRI's, Blood Work, UA's every time) and have always followed the rules. Also (local paper said) my primary care DR.'s office has been closed because he apparently was involved (local paper said he has got a target letter from the government) and Now I'm left with no primary DR. Or Pain Management Dr. it's also my understanding (local paper) that the FBI has all my records. I have multiple injuries (I almost died from a few years ago) from a auto accident. Extreme Back,Neck,Leg pain and have MRI's to prove this but I called the FBI and the lady who answered said someone would get back in touch but I h... ...

Having trouble finding self pay pain managment in Va

I have been reffered to pain management for protruding disks putting pressure on my nerve root in my back. Every pain management place that I have tryed to get into will not accept self pay. I do not have health insurance and really need to get in one fast because my job requires me to lift heavy things and bend over constantly. I stay in agony all day even with the 15mg oxycodone I have prescribed to me because I am running out and know I cannot get more until I get in pain management so I take only about half of what I need to make it last. I cannot afford insurance and I don't want to have to quit my job because I work for good people. If anyone knows a pain mangement clinic in the hampton roads area of Va that accepts cash PLEASE respond. Thank you ## Hello, Rob! How are you doi... ...

Bunavail or Suboxone can your Pain managment doc prescribe it

This new drug for opiod dependence sounds better than suboxone. What type of Doctor can prescribe this, and when this is prescribed I imagine you can't get it if you are on pain medication already. Would a doctor prescribe both if you want to wein off of your meds?? Both your pain meds and bunavail, or suboxone?? Just Curious. ## Hi Taryn, From what I understand, Bunavail contains the same active ingredients as Suboxone (Buprenorphine + Naloxone), so it's probably going to be treated in the same manner - being a Schedule III controlled substance. Apparently it was just approved by the FDA this past Friday (June 6th), and is supposed to reach pharmacies come October 2014. That would probably be the best time to ask your P.M. doctor or clinic about prescribing it. I don't know... ...

I really need to try to find a new pain doctor that is closer to me. I love the doctors there they have been wonderful to me.

I'm very sorry about the problem that you're having. Have you tried asking your doctor if they can refer you to someone else? That might be the quickest and easiest way to find the help you need. Alternatively, you may want to call Medicaid and see if they have a list of doctors in your area that accept it. The FDA lists this medication as being 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.

I had miss a pill count due to being out of town. I am nervous as to what will happen. ## I had missed a pill count due to being out of town. What can happen. I have never missed an apt, failed a u a or complained and about anything even my Apts being set 35 days after last apt. What will happen. Should I worry ## What did happen? Because im in the situation. ## My pain managment doc called today for a random pill count. I'm out of town and can't come in. Whats going to happen.

Pain manag. During and after pregnancy

I started having chronic pain two year ago when I had my daughter. At first I thought it was just typical after birth pains but after two months of being on 10mg percocets every 6 hours I knew that something must be wrong. Turns out I have endometriosis and interstitial cystitis. Drs are also suspecting at the moment that I have a bone density problem or maybe RA. I've gone back and forth between all my drs because one either diagnosis me but can't help me with the pain or they don't know what's wrong with me all together. I finally got a referral for pain Managment and the dr refuses to give me any kind of narcotic. Now I understand that they are cutting back on what they give patients because of the high level of abuse but when you have a 26 year old who can't cook... ...

suboxone how long before it helps with pain

if you are given an increase in suboxone how long before it helps with pain ## Hello, David! How are you? It is a narcotic, so it should start to have some effect within 15 to 20 minutes of taking it. 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. However, some people have reported it that it really didn't help their pain, so if it does nothing to alleviate yours, you may need to try a different medication. Has it helped, at all? ## My doctor just started me on suboxone strips for my pain managment & I accidentally threw my box away with the directions on it. I took 8mg at 4p, can someone tell me when the soonest I can take another 8mg strip? ...
