"Good" Pain Doc

It's a shame that you judge the quality of your doctor's ability by his/her willingness to prescribe opiate pain medications.  I have never understood why a patient would refuse a procedure or a test ordered by their doctor  - unless, of course, the procedure or the test will demonstrate that the alleged painful condition doesn't exist in the first place.

Doctors who don't prescribe buckets filled with opiates are not "corrupt, greedy and heartless".  Using narcotics on a chronic basis should always be the treatment of last resort.  Your comments demonstrate addictive thinking.  You and other patients of the doctor like him because he "gives you more than enough" so you can take more than prescribed on a "really bad day".  Chronic treatment of pain with narcotics should involve a standard, set dosage that is effective plus a prescription for "breakthrough pain".  The dosage of the breaktrhough pain medication does not need to be some enormous amount.  It should be just enough to add your standard dose to help with rough patches. 

Doctors need to rely on procedures, tests, and non-drug methods --using methods other than opiates is managing pain. Throwing tons of pills at the pain is masking symptoms - and opening the door wide for addiction to develop.

re:

People shouldn't blindly follow a dr who is injection happy,as in steroids or spinal cord shots. I try to save a bt dose whenever possible because there are days when an extra dose is needed.

Or the pharmacy runs out and you have no bt meds unless you have a few put back.

You happened to pick a post where the poster was banned so you wont get a response from them.  ps. dependency on pain meds is the only relief available for my problems.

I totally agree with goat. 

I totally agree with goat.  What kind of idiot is going to willingly be a guinea pig for a doctor that thinks that cortisone injections are the answer to all pain??  After being forced to go to pain management (what a joke),  after my doctor decided she was out of her comfort zone .......after 3 or 4 years.......prescribing 2 ten mg oxymorphone er per day and 2 5mg oxycodone per day the first thing they wanted to do was inject my joints with some concoction.  I flatly told them there will be no injections.  So their second best answer to pain is an ointment consisting of ketoprofen, lidocaine 3% and dmso 3%.  It worked for awhile and now it does not, so I am told I need to wait til my next appointment, NOV 21 and they will discuss it with me then.  This is pain management????  Those of you fortunate enough to have doctors willing to prescribe narcotics, be grateful!  Now I am condemned to pain for the rest of my life because of government do-gooder babysitter agencies "protecting" the abusers from themselves at the expense of the innocents who are truly in pain.  I've got a news bulletin for them:  as long as there are drugs on the planet there will be people that OD.  They will not be able to stop it.  Now watch desperate people go to the streets for pain relief you fools.

So how come we can still buy razor blades or steak knives, huh????????

I am off topic

  But my local walmart which is the only place that will fill my scripts moved across the street on the 22nd of this month and didn't get their DEA license to dispense narcotics straightened out until yesterday.  Now they can order meds.

  the stress and  withdrawl is something I should not be forced to endure due to their mistakes.   I hate the system....if i wanted street drugs that would be 100 times easier to get then dr prescribed medication.   I worry what the really bad off people feel like....

I am sorry that that happened to you. It is difficult enough to deal with all we have to deal with, but mistakes like that one , shouldn't occur, especially in companies as large as Walmart......they should have someone overseeing ensuring that all of the paperwork is filed, on time, to make sure that patients aren't left holding the (empty) bag....

goat its Andrew

cnks for sticking up for people like the person who got banned.....I believe that people trust doctors way too much and when they tell them they need an injection or procedure they just go along with it even though they're taking pain medication while post procedure and in jectionso they don't even know and the procedure or the injections are even working and I hate how people just rush to judgement that everyone should just stop taking narcotics even though they have no idea what type of injury and how severe the injury is for them to make such a arrogant ignorant comment about it without first really reading and comprehending what the forum subscriber is trying to explain I've been going through so much pain just because some god complex doctor believes that he's right and I'm wrong even though he's not in my body feeling my pain all he does is just sit back and collect his money and not do anything else all pain management doctors are are glorified drug dealers well at least most of them finding a good pain management doctor is like finding a needle in the haystack so needless to saysome people really do need this medication and my personal belief is if you were strong advocate against pain medication if you get hurt and you're one of those people who are against it don't take the pain medication if you're so against it take Advil take tylenol because I don't think you should be afforded the right to take a narcotic pain medication considering you're one of the advocates tryna make it harder for people whowho already have it hard enough they don't need you people to make it harder for them the people who are truly injured already being scrutinized and humiliated and demeaned at pharmacies doctors offices excetera I just find it despicable how truly injured people are treated and there should be some justice for them I mean people just don't get it people just go on and figure oh they have pain medication so it must be working but in reality they couldn't be further from the truth!!!!! they don't actually delve deeper into the subject of how bad pain can progress especially when you have a progressive chronic acute injury so that's all I'm going to say so for all you skeptics out there try doing some research first then comment later you know what we don't even really need your opinion please come to think of it you'll never understand what I truly injured person goes through on a day to day basis!!!!!!!!

I think I finally found a dr

I think I finally found a dr who'll give me the meds tht my injury warrants!!!!!! Considering my current pie of sh*t dr jus recently told me 4 the 2nd time in the same year tht he's retiring n tht he's gnna c me 1 more time than I need 2 find another dr!!!!! Imagine tht BS n the funny part is the last time he told me he's retiring he returned bak 2 his ovr 8 offices n began 2 practice again soo I'm guessn he's havn issues wit the DEA or sum othr BS probably because he gives scripts 2 ppl wit not even the slightest bit of a significant injury!!!!!! I jus hope this dr actually helps me because I truly need it I'm not 1 of those patients who sprained their ankle 4yrs ago n wnt oxycodone 30mg 6 times a day n oxycontin 60-80mg 2-3 times a day along wit xanax valium or klonopin!!!!!! It always seems the ppl wit the weakest injuries get the more strong meds idk y but they do......I jus wnt enough pain relief 2 improve my quality of life!!!!!! Thts not 2 much 2 ask 4 considering tht I broke my neck n have multiple bulging n herniated discs along with spinal n foraminal stenosis n fibromyalgia n a horrible case of PTSD!!!!

Chronic Pain Patients and a LAW Enforcement Agency???!!

It is absolute LUNACY for a LAW Enforcement Agency to interfere with the rights of doctors and pharmacists to prescribe and dispense medications which are required for a genuine condition. AFAIK, only Greece and Turkey have laws and procedures which are anything like analogous to that DEA interference; in both, even codeine (and even in Co-Codamol - 8mg codeine/500mg apap - form), are scheduled ONE which, in those countries, is the same as 'the filtered drug word' which is actually an Rx drug, in 10mg tablets and 10/30/60/100 & 500mg vials of freeze-dried hydrochloride powder for reconstitution,  docs here can't do without, and is a prime reason why the countries which DO prescribe it have a much higher survival rate from myocardial infarction than those which don't - the alternatives without exception, morphine being most-used, interfere with the heart's electrical function, which filtered reconstituted stuff does NOT.

I also do not understand why a mild opioid such as hydrocodone (dihydrocodeineone) is S2 when it is only 6 x potency of codeine, yet Oramorph is not even a Controlled Drug, being considered too weak for that sort of Scheduling! As 100% of the world supply is consumed in the US (yet manufactured only 18 miles from where I am sitting) since DICODID 10mg tabs, marketed as an antitussive and not an analgesic at all, was withdrawn from Europe by Knoll in 2007/8, it is currently a US-only problem; but I reckon it should be available here to fill our notorious 'analgesia gap' between dihydrocodeine tartrate and morphine sulphate; there is absolutely NOTHING between the two in potency which affects thousands of patients for whom the first is much too weak and the second unjustifiably strong for their pain levels.

The problems in the UK are somewhat different, in my case the almost criminal underprescribing of 0xyC0ntin and its subjective duration of action being only 6.5 hrs average, but a reluctance bordering on impossibility of receiving any rescue medicines. I have to go to another EU country to obtain supplies of Palfium, OxyNorm, Sevredol, but can not get any dipipanone without illegally buying it from another for whom it is prescribed. And after the English screwed us in the 'EU Exit' referendum, which here in Scotland was rejected by 2 - 1, I will have to save my Disability money for the next 3 months at least in order to go 'doctor shopping' and ensure that until I can get an Irish (EU) passport, obtain at least a year's supply of analgesics, 2mg Xanax, 12mg Lexotan and a couple of other things like Lysanxia, Rudotel and Dolforin fentanyl. One has to pay full price at the pharmacy and then wait for the refund of charges due from use of my EHIC (European Health Insurance Card), which might soon be nothing but a useless piece of plastic...

So circumstances may be completely different but outcomes slightly similar in that genuine pain patients with a need for a certain level of analgesia are unable to get same.

The disgraceful difference is that in the US, the DEA can interfere with the professional opinions and actions of qualified medical practitioners, which should NEVER be queationed. This would lead to docs being terrified to preacribe what they know is correct under the frightening possibility of legal action which might remove their prescribing rights. And, as evidenced by so many posts, the rights of patients to receive what relieves their conditions.

Like Goat, I too have no alternative to opioid medications for my pain; I have a progressive condition yet am currently prescribed ONE THIRD of the m/r dosage I was on FOURTEEN years ago. And as a consequence, when I have no meds left from my last trip to Belgium, Netherlands and Romania, in almost constant agony. The more or less worldwide ban on carisoprodol does not help either, as it is the only med that ever helped my lumbar muscular problem and every other SMR available is impossible for me to take due to either drug interactions or side effects, neither of which Carisoma ever gave me.

Thank God the Law Enforcement can not interfere here - that is unforgiveable - but the problems lie in the lunatic policies of the NHS both in prescribing and diapensing; wherever possible the cheapest generic should be dispensed, which has led to my having to buy Rivotril 2mg and Temesta 2.5mg  (both withdrawn by Roche and Pfizer due to lack of sales) online rather than take the garbage I am dispensed here. And believe me, the generic Auden McKenzie clonazepam truly IS garbage - I think it is bioavailability issues due to the binders and fillers they use, but I find I need to take at least 8 or 10mg daily rather than the perfectly adequate 6mg needed with Roche or Galenika Rivotril.

Done ranting.

For now.
