Where i live if u go to a methadone clinic you can be a life long customer if you choose so. If you go to a pain managment doc you can get prescribed for a lifetime as long as your still hurt and the doctor doesnt shut down. Meth clinic is the longest but they dont accept insurance

Is your blood pressure, diabetes type 2... etc gonna get any better? Neither is your pain unless a miracle from above strikes you with a bolt of lightning.
And you are already "labeled" a drug addict, have you ever thought of Suboxone to take forever? I loved it for the month I was on it. Relieved my pain better than class 2 meds, its a class 3 med.
Just a little information.
PS... I will be on pain meds for the rest of my life because my diseases aren't getting any better, just worse.

Hi Helene, I'm on methadone prescribed by a pain clinic, it's the best medication I've been on in 6 yrs. Not nearly as much pain.I do get breakthru meds too, as long as you don't mess up ..taking unperscribed meds things like that, you'll be good as long as the Dr doesn't go out of business things of that nature. I and not on a overly high dose and don't plan to be. As long as I'm comfortable. I have chronic pain ave I will be on meds my entire life also. Just yourself the right Dr and stick with him/her. I went they that. Thin me months to find a good one. I got him and not Lettin go..lol.
Peace out,good luck.
