Unfortunately, none of the experts here are going to be able to give you the name of a physician who would necessarily prescribe methadone (or any particular medication).

Methadone is used both for chronic pain and for treatment of opioid addition (heroin, oxycodone etc). When used for the treatment of addiction, federal law requires that this medication be prescribed by a licensed methadone clinic.

Any physician with a license and DEA registration can legally prescribe methadone for the treatment of pain. In my experience, the vast majority of physicians who prescribe methadone are pain management physicians.

Your best option would be to contact the local hospitals in your area for the names of physicians who are involved with pain management.

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
