Doctors Who Will Prescribe Pain Medication IndianaUpdated
Same as many: pain doc retired. Must find a new one. I've been on high doses of pain meds (so I hear) 30mg mscontin 3x day, 20mg oxycodone up to 80mg per day. Doc retired. General MD retired same month! I'm now starting completely over. Insurance: medicaide, HIP, MDWise. Southern Indiana. Can someone please suggest a doctor, or point me in a very helpful "same" direction? Have to wait a month for ins. About to lose my house. Can't work, can't sleep, can't concentrate. I have about 1 month to make something work fast. I cannot go through some long, long, referral here, referral there, back again thing again! Need results! Need doc, now!
What this government has done is beyond ridiculous! "War on drugs"? The only things I've heard of, as a direct consequence, from the "Responsible Opiate Prescribing" legislation that passed are these things: 1. More and more chronic pain patients suffering, left far under treated, or completely untreated. 2. More and more (untouched and unaffected) cancer patients willing to sell their pain medication. 3. A surge in the availability of H. WAKE UP! This goverment's intention to HELP the situation has made things FAR WORSE!
I have been in 8 car wrecks and have chronic back neck n leg pain I need a dr that gives percet or loratabs in louisville ky or Southern In anyone know a dr who gives pain killers without doin pain management
Are you serious?? How in the hell have u been in 8 car wrecks?? Bad driver? Just coincidence? Very strange story you come up with.
Just wondering if you ever found a Doctor that would treat you with out the Judging and denials??? In the Indiana South Bend area???
Just to share the latest... One, I'm on Medicaid. It took 4 months of phone calls and weeding through a list of nearly 200 doctors, to finally dwindle down to 75 anesthesiologists and physiatrists. Of those 75 specialists, only 2 did NOT DEMAND that you consent to multiple steroid injections as part of therapy (regardless of whether it makes things worse - which it has for me since 2009.) I finally found a doctor. BUT, he has recently made a decision to only treat patients within a set milage radius, as the "powers that be AND HATE US" are saying he's prescribing too much pain medication to too many patients. Some of his patients have had to drive over 100 miles - JUST TO FIND A DOCTOR!!! So, I might be losing this doctor.
NICE! - huh?
WHAT IS WRONG PEOPLE! I didn't ask for the problems I have with my body. I am treated like the garbage of the medical sewer - just because I am a chronic pain patient!!!
Hi "worried chronic pain patient" I know ur post was quite a while ago, but u said u found a Dr? I am moving to Elkhart/South Bend area from FL due to fiance's job. I have been in pain mngmt since 2008 due to 3 totaled car wrecks & a couple other bad wrecks (btw I was only at fault once due to something lodging under the brake, the rest I was a passenger) & a failed back surgery. Needless to say, I have chronic pain & am so worried that I won't find a Dr. in IN. I don't have the $ to see multiple Dr's just to be treated like a drug seeker. Nor can I afford to run the chance of being labled one in my search for a Dr. If u could recommend a Dr. I would truly be grateful. US chronic pain sufferers must stick together since it seems everyone else is against us!

Can you get me the name for a doctor? I'm 70 with copd and osteoarthritis / degenerative bone disease. I'll help you out with a name.
I know of a pill mill doctor who will prescribe anything. I'll give you the name. Who was your doctor and what did he prescribe? Mine would prescribe roxicodone 30 and percocets for breakthrough. I just messed it up by failing a drug panel.
Who is this dr? Mine retired. I have plenty of real proven medical conditions. I can't find no one who writes s***.
Who is the dr? Legit pain, proven disease, retired dr. Idk where to start.
Who is this Dr plz...? I've been trying and trying to find a Dr or clinic to accept me. I have a lot of the same conditions as others on here and the same problems with Dr's refusing to treat any longer. Plz give me some info.
If you could get into Floyd(Baptist) pain management they are pretty good, pretty good for a pain dr is hard to find) I lost my prescription paper cause it was given 3 weeks in advance and we were going on vacation I probably threw it away accidently. I wAs released because even though the prescription hadn't been filled i of course didn't have any in my system. I hate where I go now. So if you could get in there I'd do it. Dr Brent was my dr
I have herniated disks and disk disease plus underwent bad mesh surgery. Now all measure have been taken. I am 55 years old and can't feel my feet. I've also been diagnosed with bipolar. Please help me locate a doctor in Brookville, Indiana who prescribes pain medication.
I'm looking for a pain management Dr for my mom in Jeffersonville, Indiana or Louisville, KY area. She has been in pm for years, then out of nowhere they shut the office down. She has been on the 100 mcg Fentanyl patch for 13 years, on top of five 20mgs Roxy's a day and 3 hydrocodone 10's a day. They were wanting her to do a pain pump or wear 2 of the 100 mcg patches at a time..but my mom was too scared to wear more than one patch at a time..she said the one was helping her.. so anyway we had to find her a dr asap...and we did a Primary Care Dr..who I didn't care for at all.. He immediately jerked her off the hydro's and Fentanyl patches first thing, he even kept the ones she took in for her first appointment..and he didn't even try to wean her down at all. He did give her four of the roxy's a day which I was surprised. But that was it.. Nothing for the withdrawals, she was told in the past that she could never come off the patch, that it could be fatal if she tried it herself. They said she would have to be hospitalized if she ever wanted to come off, they really did help with her chronic pain...I'm kicking myself in the butt for not trying harder to find her a better doctor at that time..this guy didn't care at all, the hell he put her through was a nightmare after nightmare!!!!
Needless to say she did it!! but it was pure hell on her..she was living in a true nightmare...i honestly didn't think she was gonna pull through that...it took months for her to even get out of bed... Nine months later her roxy's are not helping very much.. The Dr asked if she wanted to go back to pain management and she said I guess so, but I'm leaving for 6 weeks to go help watch my grandaughter while my son who is in the military moves back to the states. Can I have my daughter pick my scrip up for me when it's due? He tells her yeah.. But now they are past due, and he will not give her another script for her pain med; says his policy is once he gives you a referral to pm then he will no longer write your pain meds for u..so she is out of town and out of her pain pills and we are told it could take 3 months to get back in pm..plus pm is telling us that the doctor has to sent her referral and records to them, that we can't just call and make a appointment ourselves ..so I don't have any idea what I can do to help her now...she is in severe pain, and is worried if she goes to the hospital that they may think she is doctor shopping, or pain med seeking, so can anyone at all tell me what I can do to help my mom..i hate seeing her like this. It's so hard watching her suffer like this!!!
Seems like the people who really need their pain meds are the ones who are getting them taken away..or they are cutting them down to nothing...While other's are getting them just to make a living by selling them.. Makes no sense to me!!! Need advice in Indiana or KY.

Re: Rozy (# 12)
I've been combing through all of these post. I am a retired, disabled veteran, with multiple back surgeries and several other medical problems. Currently I am being pushed away from my doc too. The VA experiments if you, and I've had enough of the rejection because everyone thinks you are "drug seeking". Currently in nwi (near lake or porter county), but will drive anywhere. What was the name of that dr you referred to?
Re: Rozy (# 12)
Did you find a doctor yet? You sound like my aunt, she's a little older with several disabilities and took pain meds and xanax for ten years now, never failed a drug panel, her other niece gave her a ride to the appointment and she mysteriously fails. Doctor kicked her off everything no joke. 1 drug panel with 1 doctor in 10 years & had trouble finding a new one. Her name is Rosie too.
I am located in the Crown Point (Lake County) area of Northwest Indiana and have been on pain medication for a few years. My doctor got transferred and now I can't get ANY pain medication besides over the counter stuff. I have chronic back pain and knee pain and the only thing that works is a combination of Norco and Naproxen. I have tried stronger medications but they give too much of a "buzz" and I am not a drug addict. I was on the same dose for years and never abused it, or sought more than required. I hate the fact that drug addicts make so many doctors scared to write scripts, making it nearly impossible to get pain relief for actual sufferers like myself. If anyone is from the area and could point me in the right direction, I would greatly appreciate it. As I stated, I am in Crown Point Northwest Indiana. Thanks!
