Getting pain meds from Pdoc


Recommended Posts

Yea ! My pdoc said he would be willing to write for my pain meds now that my generalist does not prescribe pain meds. It is in his best interests if he doesn't want me to get depressed. I pick up the script today or tomorrow. Finally I will not be in pain.

Good luck man. Nothing worse to toss gasoline on the tire fire that is depression like pain.

Do you find that depression amplifies the pain or have you been in remission so long that you don't remember?

I personally don't have any solutions to the opioid crisis at hand, but the US is not handling it well... :( That's another rabbit hole though.

I'm very glad your pdoc is willing to do that. My pdoc has a license to prescribe pain meds, and all the pharmacists and pharm techs in the area hate her for it. I stopped going to CVS because they were slandering her, saying she "prescribes outside the scope of her practice," and that "she's not a real doctor," and shit like that. That's also another rabbit hole.

Anyway, I'm very happy for you that you get to stay on meds that help you!

Any doctor with a DEA license and liability insurance for that schedule of med can write for pain meds. Any doctor can write off label. The DEA wants people to go the the appropriate specialist to receive their schedule II meds. I think generalists should be able to write for schedule II meds (Adderall and pain meds).

My pdoc's first internship was at UCLA at the pain clinic but of course I doubt pharmacy staff would know little details like this. He also gives me celebrex.
