Doctors In Or Near Wv That Will Prescribe Subutex For Pain?


My partner was recently given an injection and three day prescription of Buprenorphine/Subutex for severe pain during an ER visit. She is a veteran and suffers from chronic pain and has been years in pain and has managed to suffer without pain medication. After she received the injection and prescription, she realized how comfortable and nice life can be without having to experience severe chronic pain constantly. The Subutex did relieve her pain a great deal. We did talk to the ER doctor whom prescribed the medication and he did not know of a local doctor that would continue her prescription if Subutex for pain management purposes. I too take Subutex but mine is for addiction although I do also experience chronic pain but my partner doesn't fall into the category of being an addict. We have been attempting to find a doctor somewhere in WV or even PA that does not have a problem prescribing the Subutex for pain management. All I know of are addiction treatment facilities and they will not treat my partner at those for pain, she'd have to be an addict and she isn't. Does anyone know of a doctor in or near WV that will prescribe Subutex for pain management?

Is she contacting the doctors to ask them specifically about prescribing this medication?

If so, that might be causing the problem, most doctors will view that as drug seeking behavior and refuse to prescribe it.

Really, the best thing to do is to see a new doctor, make sure they have copies of all her medical records, and let them decide what to do, based on those telling them what has or hasn't worked as reported by other doctors.

The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation.

If she has access to VA healthcare they have doctors that can help her. Although they may want to try a different pain then subutex, they would be able to help with pain management.
