Hello, Renee! How are you?

It isn't that doctors don't exist who will prescribe Methadone, it's that there's no listing to refer to of doctors that will prescribe any given medication, additionally, since Methadone is so highly habit forming, most doctors are reluctant to prescribe it to treat pain.

Learn more Methadone details here.

Due to the new regulations that were put in place this year, if you require such medications for long-term treatment of chronic pain, then you'll need to see a pain management specialist, because general practitioners and surgeons have been severely restricted regarding what they can prescribe, how much they can prescribe, why they can prescribe it and how long they can prescribe it.

Do you currently have a PCP that could refer you to someone? If so, that would likely be the easiest way to get the help you need.

One important thing to remember is that when you contact a doctor to set up an initial appointment, don't ask if they will prescribe any particular medication, because they are taught to see that as drug seeking behavior, so they usually won't even let you get in the door.

Methadone is technically not a pain medication. Well it's not something a doctor prescribed as a first choice for a pain medication. I have personally only ever had 1 patient who received a script of methadone for pain and that was because she has uterus cancer and at the time of diagnosis of the cancer was also taking illicit drugs! The doctor prescribed methadone to help with the pain from the cancer and also her withdrawals from being addicted to opiates! I would highly suggest finding something else to take to help your pain other than methadone! Methadone is WORSE THAN HEROIN to get off of. It LITERALLY goes into your bones and 99% of people who get on it stay on it for the rest of their lives.

I need to find help with finding a doctor in Ohio that will prescribe subutex for chronic pain and not for being a junkie. I chose to quit getting prescribed oxycodone and a high dose because of the rapid cycle of addiction forming. I switched to subutex immediately and now Kentucky only wants to prescribe either Suboxone or only subutex for pregnant women. I cannot take Suboxone longer than a day because of severe stomach pain and migraines and have had a doctor tell me I'm allergic to naloxone. If anybody can help I'd be thoroughly appreciative.

Which part Ohio are you in? I recently relocated to the Cleveland area and found a doctor to prescribe me subutex, no problem if you have a logical reason.
