Hate to say it, but Suboxone and Subutex will leave you with the same big hairy monkey as any narcotic. That last step off is a REAL issue for ALOT of people (my brother included)

Neither of these medications is a "pain medication" per say. While there is SOME pain relief in people with no opioid tolerance, the naltrexone in it blocks opiate receptors in your brain, for this reason, it is mainly used to treat opiate dependency.

The best plan of action would be to see a pain management doctor who can adequately manage your pain, use ONE pharmacy and ONE doctor (either pm or pcp) and go from there.

Pain is a mean beast, but you must go about treating it the right (and legal!) way.

To Blair, I am in Texas remember but I am sure they do. The other clinic (Hope) is cash only. Virginia is awful my insurer literally flew me in and tried to get me to a doctor who always throws over cases for them trust me you do not want this guy. He puts you on detox medications and as a specialist in pain and a health care professional once you take that route legitimate pain specialists won't help you again. If I were living back home (round Richmond) I'd make the trip if I had the compassionate physician care and understanding that legitimate pain clients need. Ultimately you become tolerant and will require higher doses (physicians know this) also the FDA allows generics to have up to 50% less opioid so with this new 120 mg. morphine equivalent rule for example I am on Duragesic a 100 mcg/hour brand has over 16 mg. Fentanyl but a Watson only has 10 for example that is a huge amount in fact a 75 mcg/hour brand has more then the 100 mcg/hour generic. I post more on the Texas and Louisiana posts for now but keep me posted on your outcome ok <3

HI, BlueBell! How are you?

The current situation isn't that doctors aren't compassionate, it's that there are strict regulations in place regarding what they can and cannot prescribe, how much they can prescribe, how long they can prescribe it and why they can prescribe it. It's really tied their hands in many cases.

If you have a condition that requires strong pain medications for long-term treatment of chronic pain, then your best bet is most likely going to be to see a pain management specialist.

Do you have a general practitioner that you see regularly who may be able to refer you to someone?

Does anyone else know of a good doctor in that area?

You should get subs (subutex or buprenorphine) instead. Opiates leave you broke with a huge monkey on your back

Hello NicknameRVA, I saw your post about the subs - in reference to being a better alternative than taking oxycodone.....Do the subs actually provide pain relief? Someone had told me that the subs were to assist you with the withdrawals from opiates? - Could you please share your experience between the two? Also you stated that you know of a prescribing doctor..... could you please also post their contact information on here? - Cannot be done by email, when anyone tries posting their email on their message it won't come up, they edit it out for privacy. Thanks for any help and information you may be able to provide.

Please, I need someone ASAP!! I have my records, pharmacy log, mri, and I can get any thing else needed. Please, if you can help me, then I can pass it along to someone else who is suffering.
