I was put into a Pain Clinic to begin with in '03, as a result of a traumatic birth. Now when I tell Dr's that I know Methodone works they tell me no, here are some pain pills, take five a day destroy your Liver and see you next month. The Methodone was once a day, and it worked good for me. I know my body better than them but I can't convince them otherwise, they won't give it to me. How do I convince them to do so, it's as if my wellbeing only matters once a month at 930 AM
Lynn1981; Sorry for the problem but part is that they are giving doctors such a hard time with narcotics nowadays. All you can really do is take your bottle in and just be up front tell them everything you have taken with no results. And that you always end up back on this and the others are so expensive and this is very cheap. IT does not always work but you have to get to know a doctor sometimes or tell them to feel free to call your old doctor.You have nothing to hide but this is all you can function on and yes it may still take a few visits to earn the doctors trust.But it is the same old run around. Sadly we have to pay for the abuse of people on the street which does not help.Lots of times it's just a trial and error you may just get a doctor that well just prescribe it without problems keep your fingers crossed.
