In June, my COBRA insurance expired and my doctor dropped me like a hot potato. Even though I am covered by the Veterans Administration now, they will not prescribe oxycontin for pain management. I can't find a doctor who will write me a prescription without insurance coverage and a referral. Anybody have any suggestions on how I can find a doctor to write a prescription for oxycontin?
Oxycontin is such a powerful and highly addicting medication as I am sure you know. Have you tried a pain management doctor? It is used for intense pain that is probably not going away any time soon and is often used as a last resort pain medicine. See if you can get a referral to a pain management doctor or maybe an orthopedist.
