Customer Question

If someone is in chronic pain and doctors through regular pain clinics and emergency rooms won't give you the medication you desperately need is there help they can get. My friend is in so much pain. She has been on Oxycodone for years she had knee surgery 2 months ago got her script filled from the surgeon only to find out that because she did that she violated her pain management contract and got kicked out for 6 months. Now she is in desperate need of her meds and doctors won't do anything

This is Dr. David

I am sorry about your friend.

your friend should ask the surgeon to give her oxycodone pain medications for only 6 months until she can get back into the pain management doctors.

the surgeon should be able to do that for her since it was that prescription which got her kicked out of the pain practice.

either that or the surgeon should give a call to the pain medicine doctors and talk between them to sort out the situation for the patient.

often times doctors calling doctors directly will help clear up the confusion and miscommunication.

we can not give out prescriptions for patients over the internet who we can't examine and can't keep medical records on

let me know if you have other questions.
