I have not heard yet that you are back from the store, but I have been using this time to see what I can find with investigation.
I cannot find the specific regulatory changes that has been implemented in Texas. I can find a number of people that live in Texas and are lamenting that their doctor will no longer prescribe Soma. But I cannot find the specific regulatory change that has caused this.
As for finding a doctor that is certain to prescribe Soma, that is a difficult situation, as any doctor will only be able to say that they are willing to prescribe any controlled substance after evaluatinig a patient.
The usual first recommendation is that a local primary care doctor will have more experience with the local specialists, including whether the doctor has prescribed chronic use of controlled substances to other patients that have been referred. So, a local primary care doctor is usually better able to refer you to a doctor that will be willing to prescribe Soma. Even with that knowledge, it is not a guarantee, as the new doctor will still need to make an independent assessment, but it would be more likely to be prescribed the medicine.
If the doctor that as been prescribing the Soma is not able to make such a recommendation, and you have had any care provided by a different primary care physician, then it would be an option to ask whether that primary care physician would be able to make a recommendation.
In the absence of such local knowledge, the best that I can tell you is that it is more likely that you will be able to get a prescription in this situation if your are seen by a Physiatrist that offers a Pain Management practice, A Physiatrist is also called a Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation specialist. I have found a couple of doctors in Houston that are such a specialty and highly rated, including Dr. Allen Dorsett at phone number(###) ###-####and Dr. Shabrez Tariq at phone number(###) ###-####
If I can provide any additional information, please let me know.
