I too suffer from chronic back & shoulder pain and I am finding it next to impossible to find any doctors willing to help me. I work 60 hours a week, and now feel forced to look for other alternatives in order to obtain the medicines I need to function. I know that tramadol is now considered a controlled substance, but is that safer to get online than hydrocodone for example? I'm literally running out of options, and feel like I need to take matters into my own hands.
Online or in store, you will still need a valid doctor's prescription to purchase the tramadol. If you find an online pharmacy that doesn't require a prescription for it, you can bet that it won't be genuine tramadol that you're getting. Not to mention that getting it through the mail from another country is illegal. These purchases are heavily monitored and it's definitely not worth the trouble you could get in to purchasing something that's probably not real anyway. I know how difficult it is to find a pain management doctor that will prescribe a controlled substance, or narcotic, but that's really your only viable choice. So many of those online pharmacies are fake and unreliable. You're basically asking for someone to scam you while they're taking your money.
There are different classification to the drug classifications (government. Right?)Lol...
I think hydrocodone is a class up from Tramadol.
There are mail order sites in the US that are the same as walking into a CVS.
I would NOT get anything from non-USA pharmacy. Not only in quality but importing any classified drugs are illegal... very illegal. In most cases you won’t even get it !
You do NOT want to get caught importing illegal drugs. I wouldn’t even go on those web sites. Big Brother, you know.
It’s quite a predicament we have !
All I can say is keep looking for a doc. Take your records with you showing when and why the Hydrocodone was ordered. Tell your doc nothing has changed! It’s chronic and you won’t “get over it” nor have you had surgery.
So, either the doc ordering it was wrong or the new doc is wrong by not renewing it.
