Doctors Who Will Prescribe Pain Medication
(Newest replies first)
I have chronic disc, bone, nerve damage have many other nerve, bone and tendon damage. Had injections, surgery and nothing helps. Going to a pain clinic in Rhode Island and love my doctor but wait is extremely long. Don't know how to find another doctor in area who will continue to prescribe Meds on and need to cope and quality of life. My doctor understands and can't find any doctor in area who will prescribe: oxycontin, oxycodone, Xanax and Valium. Are there any doctors in RI who will prescribe same and manage pain and increase when needed?how do I find ? HELP
The suicide hotline is busy, much of the time. The drs. are taking away good cheap pain meds, and anxiety meds, that work well, and add to a patient's quality of life. Many are thinking about suicide because they feel hopeless and helpless. Being abused and bullied in drs. office by a professional dr, seems to be acceptable. The pain drs. want to bully patients into expensive tests and procedures that have failed, and the proof of it is in their past medical records. They trash talked my drs. The pain dr. seemed uneducated and i felt like i was in a mental ward... They want your $$ and they don't seem to care about the patient. They are driving patients to suicide, with bulling. I'm leaving Arizona State. It is a mean drs. playground. Bullying should be unacceptable behavior. I have no tolerance for paying $$$ to a professional to be emotionally abused...
I have moved from Western Washington recently. I am on oxycodone, xanax and cymbalta... I have been on xanax and oxycodone for 10 yrs. Meds were written by one dr. No problems or bad side effects. Now i have moved to Phoenix Arizona. I have been bullied and treated horribly by so-called professionals, here. Whether they are pain drs, or primary care drs. They pass the buck, and bully patients. I am truly shocked. They seem to want people to commit suicide by their actions. They demean patients. I heard patients in other rooms being bullied. Arizona pain specialist, in Glendale AZ, avoid... Most of all of this seems to be about greed $$. I contacted my drs back home. I'm moving back to receive decent medical care. I have heard others here in Arizona talk about their medical care. I'm leaving this horrible place soon...The drs want to prescribe more expensive meds here in AZ. All meds have side effects.
I was told that Valium is good for back and leg pain. Xanax is for anxiety and suffer with panic attacks. My panic attacks b4 I started with Xanax I had full blown panic attacks. They are scary and I have so many I was put into a ambulances and taking to ER. Only to be told I have full blown panic attacks. You really feel as if your dying. Dr. Put me on Xanax and now, I very rarely get them, when I do I put one under my tongue. Melts into body faster. Now I have no rides to the ER. They are so damn scary.
Taking Xanax and Valium and all that pain medication. I take Xanax for anxiety and pain medication. People like you are screwing People Like Us who are really in pain because you wouldn't be asking for so much Xanax and Valium, Oxycontin and Oxycodone. I'm sorry to say it, you need to go into a detox.
Thank you for sharing.
It's interesting the Gabapentin would not work, then the Lyrica did? As I have taken lyrica with very little results. And like Codeine is to Morphine. Meaning the Lyrica has to convert to Gabapentin to work.
Maybe it was the dose? I do find Gabapentin to work. And Topamax to work even better for nerve pain. And I am a 6 foot male, I started at 190 and after 4 months of Topamax went down to 155. The Doctor started talking to me about eating more. The truth is I might have reduced my food intake by 10%. But that's it. The only side effect other than weight loss was that it made Perrier (club soda) taste like I would imagine tin to taste.
But it did help nerve pain more than the Lyrica or Gabapentin. Topamax is the Brand name. Ask your DR if you like. It's not controlled, you don't get any weird looks. It's at the lowest level of risk. Same Doctors just prescribe it along with Anti depressants. Because they know that they all make you gain weight outside of Wellbutrin.
I am really just asking if anyone that know's of a Doctor that is fine with continuing a low dose of Morphine?
The drugs like Gabapentin and other nerve meds like lyrica are so needed in conjunction with any opiate or you end up using too much and eventually will be labelled an addict and end up on methadone or Rehab or Dead.
That is why I am so upset with the Dr's that just Prescribe Benzo's, Soma's, and Opiates. Like any pill mill. They should be charged with 2nd degree murder.
I know this is an old post from 2014, but I wanted to share my experience with you.
I'm so sorry you have this pain. But ther is hope!
I, too, had crippling leg pain from nerve damage. Every day by 4:00pm, I couldn't walk without a walker and still the pain was intolerable.
I was prescribed a massive dose of gabapentin for the nerve pain and it did nothing.
I asked for a prescription of Lyrica and the result has been AMAZING! Some Doctors are afraid to prescribe it in conjunction with mophine but beg if you have to. It helps with all the other nerve pain that results from damaged nerves you aren't aware are there.
It has been my saving grace and I am so grateful I have a compassionate doctor who gets mad at how timid physicians are to treat chronic pain patients like human beings.
I hope this helps.
Any help would be so great. 8 years now. My DR retired. I was using 60mg of Morphine. Not a huge amount, especially for 8 years straight. And valium 5mg TID.
Thank you so much. Hope you are still on the board.
RI also: If you would let me know name, it would be helpful 5 years of pain for me. Good luck ((hugs)) from Mpathia U cannot put email up but perhaps you could describe where office is located and if it is a pain clinic. I forgot but I think you said it was... Your the first Rhode Islander I've encountered
Hi. I am just weaning off meds and know I'm just about to go into excruciating pain and not be able to function. I have fibromyalgia, 6 bulging discs, a few pinched nerves, spinal stinosis and a few more things wrong that I didn't understand on my mri. I live on Long Island ny. I really could use a dr that prescribes pain meds. Soon I'll be bed ridden. I don't have the money to keep wasting my time going to drs who will only give epidurals, which I'm totally against and the other injections have caused me more pain than normal. Of course you can't ask on the phone if they prescribe.I need to know for sure a dr prescribes. Please if anyone knows of any drs in NY. Queens, long Island, Manhattan or Brooklyn I would be forever in your debt. Not much of a life. Soon I won't even be able to get out of bed.
Thanks Linny I was able to get through, I guess their phones were down when I tried, their was no machine to leave a message or answering service. Thanks so much for your response I really appreciate it.
That number is correct, try again I know someone that goes there!
Hello, I was wondering if you have their telephone number, I did try the number that someone left in a post, but it does not sound like a Doctor's office our Medical Group.. The number that I have is 401-356-4046, their is no message that indicates that it is a Doctor's office, sometimes it just rings once with no answering service, I wonder if they are still in business. Any help would be Greatly appreciated.
This is not dangerous if her tolerance and pain is medically indicated. Don't judge.
Does anyone know a pain doctor in CT that will prescribe pain medication? I badly need one, as I am in terrible pain every day, I'm only 26 is the problem. So please if anyone could help I would greatly appreciate it! Also I know a doctor who will write scripts to anyone and am willing to trade names, I'm just banned from that Dr, office because I got in a fight with the Secretary. So message me on here, thank you.
It is amazing any Dr. would prescribe all of that..It is dangerous....
HELP! NJ! Toms River area preferable but can't be choosy...
Am SO sorry, Steve. I'm bedridden 20yrs. Dr. quit for same reason many months ago, 2 seizures from sudden withdrawls from Fentanyl to Detrol (for cord bladder....cuz they'd not help), Workers Comp hasn't honored the court order. Need Dr. for immediate pain med for short-term & lawyer. Have all MRIs, Drs.' files, no one can be bothered to look.
I wish you get some relief.
Where is it at? I need help bad. I was on 30mg oxy 4x day for 2 years, I had cancer and a lot of chemo burns thats leaked, and doc moved and got a new doc she said no only give me a few weak ones a month.
Dr. Schultz in providence is good..they are very good !!!
I am going to my first appointment at that pain clinic in Woonsocket and am very nervous. I heard a rumor that they don't prescribe medications on your first appointment, is this true? My quality of life is so low right now and I don't know how in the world I can wait for tests results to finally get some relief. It's not just myself suffering but my family too, they can only take so much crying, complaining, staying in bed and not being able to do fun things with my children. Please let me know about your experiences there so far!
