... may be broke, he has what they call tennis arms & elbows, He was on methadone for a while and detoxed off of it successfully and then he broke his back & shattered his hand they had to go in and put titanium rods & screwas to put his hand back together, the doctor even stated he has never seen a break that bad he was in surgery for 3 hours and know he is back at being addicted to pain pills and would like to get everything fixed but he needs help trying to get off the pain meds cause he works every day like this & can barely move when he gets home we are trying to figure out how this pain can be taken care of & the withdrawls of the pain meds without having to go back on methadone at a methadone clinic. I know that some doctors can prescribe methadone but how do we found out who? so they can detox him. Its hard to go to a methadone clinic especially the only one we have here and have a job because they want you at the clinic everyday and go to 4 meetings per week and you cant do that when you work a full time job or you will lose your job and then you cant pay the 100.00 a week payment they want for the methadone so again you would not be able to go to the clinic if you cant work you cant pay and then you probably lost your job. Please tell us what we can do,. I here of people every day that goes to pain clinics and gets methadone and there is nothing wrong with them but what about the people that really do have serious pain & medical conditions that actually need the methadone but cant find help. Please help us with this, no one should have to go through something like this and I dont no what else to do. Could you please give us some doctors/pain clinics that can help him with this
Can he get into a pain clinic. Any doctor can order methadone if it is for pain control. So his own doctor can actually order it for pain. I to would stay away from the clinic as they don't really cater to people who start there who have jobs. This is why he should get the methadone from his regular doctor that prescribes him the opiates he now takes... Good luck... Dave
I am so glad I saw your question. I started taking lortab 7.5 ( they did not make tens then in 1990. My grandma gave me some cause I had the flu. After the third pill I found my only tru love. At 23 I worked at ford motor company and built 87 ford explorers an hour. So u know how pain ful that was. I ended up taking 20 tab tens a day. 100 bucks a day. So I decided to go to a methadone clinic. I was on 80 mg a day for three months after the Virgina tech shooting I decided to quit because I knew those kids were going through a tuff time and methadone was not helping my pain plus I got up at 330 every morning and stood in line for my dose it is a sad way to live. I stock piles 200 tab 10s. It was April 17 the next day I was fine but the next 10 days I spent in my bathtub taking handful of tabs and on tenth day they worked. I spent over 377,566 bucks on pills. Saboxone is terrible u can't pee or have sex. I finely FOUND a pysch doc in Dallas I recently moved from pain pill capital ky.he prescribed me a magic patch once a week called BUTRAN oh my god go get it ask for it. You change it once a week and you can not suck the gel out. Please please do not go merhadone route, I would of cut my right hand off to get off withdraw. Butran comes in 5mc/mg 10 and 20. The five did not help get the 10 it saved my life and I have no pain Wat do ever. It's a new drug and it is better than oxy call me I will send a pic it will save your sanity his life and his job. 214 577 4926 pain meds killed both parents at 45 and 52i am now 31 and I am glad I took the. Time out for you. Clint
