Looking for a doctor who Prescribes soma in DFW area, preferably Garland or Plano or Richardson. I’ve been on soma for eight years through my PCP but unfortunately the practice he belongs to has closed down. I went to pain management doctor today and the charges are $500 a visit and does not prescribe some. I can’t take any other muscle relaxers.
I really feel Texas is limiting the rights of their citizens, and Abbott doesn't care. Trying to set the law of the land with that Abortion Pill, and now wont even let doctors prescribe Soma. With all the horrible murders in the DFW area, and all the recent murders in the state, have you thought of moving to a new place like Arizona, or California? I have yet to have a doctor say no out here

Re: EDDY (# 1)
My PCP had no issues prescribing but their practice closed. Went to a Pain Management who took me off Tylenol 4 and put me on hydrocodone 10/325 and tinzadine which interacts with my medicine for recurring shingles in my depression medication I was like OK you’re a quack

Personally, I have found that when you go to a doctor for the first time and ask for opiates or Soma muscle relaxers, they automatically put you on a blacklist because they feel you are drug-seeking. I suggest that you bring every single piece of documentation, such as MRIs, CT scans, and every test you've ever had, even if you've had surgery, with you to your first appointment with any doctor. Also, bring your receipts or go to your pharmacy and ask them to print out all of the medications you've taken for the last 7-8 years and bring them to the doctor to prove your case. Show them what you've tried, what has worked, and what hasn't. It's called CURAS, at least in California. It's the California prescription monitoring log. I'm sure there is a similar system in every state. You can bring all of your logs, which you can easily get from your pharmacist, and the doctor can run a CURAS report himself to see that you are not drug-seeking and you are not lying, and that you have real, horrible, severe pain conditions. Legally, they cannot turn you away. They have to treat you.
If I were you, I would go to the emergency room, bring all of my documentation, and get the emergency room to write you a prescription. Then take that to your doctor and say that the emergency room doctor felt you were in dire need of this due to your past medical conditions and excruciating pain. Hopefully, that will convince the doctor to prescribe for you. That's all I can recommend because that's what I had to do. I've been a chronic pain patient since I was hit by a motorcycle when I was 19 years old. When you're 19 and they offer you $1 million, you think it will last the rest of your life. Unfortunately, that didn't happen; it lasted maybe 10 years, and now at 54, I'm still dealing with horrible chronic pain issues. I've had a hip replacement, shoulder replacement, surgery on my lower back three times, and numerous tests and blind studies to see if any new medications over the years have improved, but none have.
It's a shame because people like us who have severe, real chronic pain are being denied medications due to drug addicts seeking prescription pain drugs. Before Rush Limbaugh and his OxyContin craze, there was never a problem getting medications, especially if you had proof, which I have for the last 35 years. About 20 years ago, my pain management doctor recommended that I go on methadone because I couldn't function as a normal human being taking heavy-duty narcotics like Dilaudid, Fentanyl, and Demerol. I couldn't cook a meal, drive, or do daily household chores. My doctor said, "Hey, let's try methadone because I think this will work for you." Well, it's been 20 years, and it works like a charm.
After my hip surgery, they had to put me on high doses of Dilaudid to manage the pain. I'm still suffering from pain from it. My surgeon sent me to a pain management doctor to manage my pain control while I was in the preop and postop. And for the most part, he did a good job. He was giving me the Dilaudid 8 mg tablets and then we kept going down as my pain decreased and finally I am not taking it anymore. However, I still do have pain. I am going to call him and ask him to write me a script just so I have it on hand in case I get a real bad work out or I have severe pain and I have something called scar tissue pops, which which are horrible and it makes you feel like you did immediately after surgery for 24 to 36 hours. He tried like three different kinds of muscle relaxers. None of them worked and that because I take Valium for my PTSD. He wasn’t happy about that and I said I really don’t care. And I smoke marijuana because that helps me with severe pain and he wanted me to stop smoking and I was like "yeah not gonna happen unless you give me enough pain medication", which, of course she didn’t. But it was enough to take it from my level 10 to about a level 6, so for me that’s the best I could hope for.
I hope that you use some of this advice that it may be helpful to you and I pray to God that you received the medication that you so desperately need. I’m just showing you my own personal experience within the last six months after having a total hip replacement which was on bone on bone it was horrible ... Good luck to you and please keep me updated on what’s happening with your doctor and your pain.
