I wish I could tell you differently, but this is the prevailing report through out the country. There is no law (unless its a state one) that says they cannot order 30 but doctors who do are being looked at very closely and it can cause big trouble for them. Someone thinks they can say what amount of drug is needed for what, and no one should have more. The totally forget that people build up tolerances, or some people need more then others. I wish you luck finding someone who can help you. I can't get any controlled drug in this state, so you're ahead of me.
You shouldnt put your phone number on an internet site. People from all over the world can see this site. Many docs wont prescribe just short acting medications like oxycodone 30's anymore. I agree with you, they are about the only thing that helps me too but you should really be on a long acting pain medication if you have chronic pain. Let me tell you a little secret though, asking for oxycodone 30's only AND saying that 15's do nothing raises red flags. Two 15's should do the same exact thing as one 30. When you go in asking for a certain medication and refuse to use anything else, it looks bad and you will put off any Dr like that. Abusers that used to use Oxycontin before they switched to the tamper resistant formulas turned to Oxycodone 30's once the new formula replaced the old one and docs know that they are valuable on the streets and that is why they dont like to prescribe them. Take the 15's and use two if you have to but you will then have to use less so you dont run out early. Ask the Drs about a long acting medication, using the 15's for breakthrough. You should get better relief that way. Be patient too, once a new doc gets to know you a while and becomes certain that you are not abusing, they may relent and allow you the 30's. You might also try some of the smaller pain doc offices rather than the larger ones. The larger centers tend to be regulated more closely. Just my thoughts and advice.
