... to check my opiates... They told me it came positive for methadone and asked me where did I get it from... I told them I didn't even know what methadone is... negative for opiates... First of all, I am taking Lorcet 10/650 and Soma as a regiment for my pain... I take one to two tablets every four hours.. That evening before going to bed, I took my meds... When I woke up, again I took my meds... How can it be negative for opiates, and be positive for methadone... Now, they didn't refill my prescriptions and they just sent me a letter denying further health services... Can someone help me please!!! I even on the internet to find out e what was methadone... and asked my friends... I have never been to a rehab center or touched heroine... I am deathly scared of needles and I can't even poke myself with my own epi-pen... Someone has to poke me while distracting me from the thought of being poked by a Needle... Please help!!!

I have been diligently calling my Ohana Health care provider...since Dr. Zunin sent me a letter the following day, that he will no longer be my PCP... I tasked to Ohana & they advised Me to go to ER...ER can only provide me a two or three day supply of My regiment of pain meds... My service Coordinator is aware of all the things I'm going through... I personally asked the ER MD to do a urine test again to check for the methadone and the opiates.... On the 26th... I had to go to ER again to get my pain meds... I inquired about the test I requested and the MD said I was negative for methadone and that I was positive for my opiates.... I called my Service Coordinator and told her the findings on the test... She talked to her Medical Manager and Pharmacy Manager and explained the situation I'm in..... The Medical Manager was able to converse with Dr. Zunin, and came to an agreement that he would refill all my meds on Friday afternoon.... The Medical Manager told her that Dr. Zunin would refill my Meds...and to contact me, because they new I already have used up the dosage the ER prescribed... She called me around 3 PM and I called Dr. Zunin's office and they had no clue in regards to my refills... My Case Coordinator was calling my regular pharmacy at the same time, if anything was prescribed to me... And they said nothing was called or electronically sent to them....so when I've followed up and called that he b didn't do it as agreed...I went to the ER again.... Does anybody know why he's not fulfilling his promise and making me suffer with severe acute pain... Can I do anything??? For making me go through hell... For cutting me off my meds, knowing my medical history from a severe car crash.... Leaving me paralyzed and disabled and two cervical disectomies... I am in so much pain and it's very difficult to find a PCP accepting new patients in Hawaii with a State Medicaid Health Plan Provider.... I really need all the assistance and suggestions that you have provided me!!!:-) Thank You Very Much and Mahalo Nui Loa.... Please help me again..... ;-) Mahalo!!!

R doctor wants me to talk to Dr.Zunin to resolve the problem on the test they took which was wrong... I've left messages & no replies... Office manager calls me to tell me the lab results is positive for more stuff I do not do....and dropping me as a patient TODAY... reporting findings to healthcare provider.... I'm trying to resolve the first problem and I proved that they were incorrect...now telling me I'm doing things like alcohol, marijuana, illicit drugs....I got more upset that I interrupted her and said I can't believe you guys.... I have proved to you that you were wrong on the first test....stopped my pain meds refills...causing me more severe pain, stress, withdrawals and more problems.... just to check for my opiates... You tell my healthcare provider that you would refill the three weeks supply... They tell me to call you and nobody knows anything about it... You don't return my message to return my calls...and not once have I been able to talk to Dr. Zunin...after the test... Answers is really appreciated again... Mahalo, bubbagirl
Sweetpea is correct in her answer albeit a synthetic opiate. I will give you a link to read, & get a new pain doc ASAP or you will be in withdrwals. Talk about hell! Explain what happened to the new doc & tell them you tested neg. for opiates, but they said you had methadone. Methadone is usually a pill or liquid they give out at treatment centers, but is also used for chrontic pain. I wish you the best, & get on the phone to your PCP to get help finding a new pain doc ASAP...
