My neurologists told me that since I'm "stable" and responding to the meds he is referring me back to my PCP. Okay... so I fax my Rx info to my PCP as per neurologists instructions and his nurse calls me and tells me he doesn't prescribe "that kind" of med. So I call neurologists and he says I'm sorry I don't prescribe that medication anymore... anyone else facing this problem? I know people abuse meds but this is crazy! I was prescribed a bottle every 2 weeks... not like some people who have taken as much as 6/month.
You've fallen into how our wonderful country treats those in pain. The DEA has the docs so scared they won't order needed meds. They care more for the idiot who accidentally kills himself trying to get hi then they do for good citizens in pain. They think if they keep meds from us the drugs won't get on the streets for the idiots.
Everybody contact your Congressional Reps and Senators. They need to hear from the people suffering. Or better yet, contact a reporter and get a story about your case. That's the best way to get the problem out to the public. I have not had any problems from my pain management doctors. I'm fortunate so far, but the day I'm not, I'll be contacting reporters.
Since you can't get the med that worked for you, have you tried Botox? That helped me a lot. Also have you tried Butrans patches which have opiates in them? Those kept me out of the ER. Have you tried the off-label Namenda med? That also gave me significant relief. I need a lot since my migraines were caused by a major stroke. But just one thing that has helped me could cure your migraines.
