I recently moved to Abingdon, Va, and I have degenerative disc disease. Pain under control with 15 mg -30 mg oxycodone and cervical epidurals. Cannot find a prescribing doctor in this area. Please help. Have had to fly out to Colorado 3 times to get meds and procedures.

What type of doctor have you been seeing?

Some new laws went into place at the beginning of the year and due to very high rates of drug abuse and bad prescribing practices, they are being very strictly enforced, especially on the east cost.

Thus, you are most likely going to have to see a pain management specialist to continue receiving such controlled substances.

The legal changes don't allow general practitioners to prescribed such medications for long-term use anymore, except for in certain very rare cases. However, for the most part, they can only prescribe them for short-term use, such as for a few weeks after someone has had surgery or been injured in an accident.

Do not go to Magnolia Family Medicine.

Dr. Gardner and his staff will treat you like a drug addict.
I had to wear a back brace for many years and still have back pain about twice a year. Three times at the most. Twice in my life, I've had pain so bad that I could not walk for days. I have never in my life encountered a supposed physician who refused to help someone in pain. I received a small prescription there, which was fine, but the prescription made me sick to my stomach and miserable. I took 9 pills in 7 days. I went back and asked if they could prescribe something different because I was getting sick all the time. I was told that "... the doctor is not going to prescribe a stronger narcotic." I DIDN'T ASK FOR ANYTHING STRONGER!
All I wanted was to try something different that would not make me sick. Regardless of how mad and insulted I was, I politely ended the call and never went back. If you ever have are, he will also go the extra mile of suggesting Mucinex. Do yourself a favor and take the time to find an actual professional who understands living with chronic pain, even if you have to drive to Charlottesville, Va.

Verwon,
I realize this post is several months old. But I was wondering what laws you were referring to when you said "The legal changes don't allow general practitioners to prescribed such medications for long-term use anymore, except for in certain very rare cases. However, for the most part, they can only prescribe them for short-term use, such as for a few weeks after someone has had surgery or been injured in an accident.
