you are in the wrong forum. this is for people wanting to get OFF meds not find a place to get them. maybe try the pain management forum
Um, this IS the Pain Management Community. This is NOT for people looking to get off meds.
NerdGirl19 is correct -- this forum is for pain issues and is not an addiction or substance abuse forum. There are other places for those subjects here on medhelp.
No MRI/ Specialist confirmed pain-causing Injury, or other condition that calls for long term medical treatment for pain ?: NO 30-Day METHADONE Precription !! At least thats how it is here in Pennsylvania currently. The only other way You get a 30 day sply. is thru an Addiction Treatment Facility (Govt. Apprvd., Regulated) IF and WHEN the powers-that-be (docs., nurses, and councellors) approve an individual for TAKE-HOME privileges. Again, this is here in Penna. I am speaking as a chronic pain Mngmnt. client who has been on methadone for an inoperable lower back injury for over 20+ years now !
Can I ask why you’re on a methadone maintenance program? Have you had an addiction in the past? If so, it could be difficult to find a physician to prescribe any type of opiate to you. There are doctors out there, however, that are capable of doing so safely if your condition warrants the use of pain medications. Do you have a primary physician that could suggest/refer you to a pain management clinic that may be able to help? Most Pain Management clinics require a referral and testing/proof of diagnosis these days. Unfortunately, with so many people abusing opiates, doctors are required to be very careful what they’re prescribing and to whom. I’m in another state so I cannot help with the name of a clinic/doctor, but if I were you, I would ask one of your current physicians for a referral and make an appt to speak to them. Good luck!
