I dont know of any DR that writes a lot of pain prescriptions regardless of illness..and btw I know someone personally with cancer and they cannot get a dr to write them a prescription for pain meds..or even get into a pain clinic..and no they have never been on drugs of any kind before..their cancer drs are out of state could be part of the reason but the ones out of state don't want to write them either..so :/

Theres plenty of fake people trying to get pills at these pain clinics but for every 10 fake patiences there is about 4 honest patients that are in legit pain and most family doctors can't write monthly pain medication. Soo don't judge everyone just because they go to a pain doctor because that doesn't automatically make them a dope head or drug dealer!

I hope you are in recovery now..I don't know your DR or situation but due to the type of cancer they had and the complexity of it..they went out of state for treatment and now are having trouble getting help...they were very healthy before and did not even have a primary dr. The cancer clinic is out of state that they go to...if you go locally I doubt you would have this problem.

My grandfather recently died from colon concer. He was given opana & oxycodone at the final months. I picked them up for him every month, as he was bedridden. His primary doc wrote every script, every month. No probs. He went to an Asian dr here in beckley. I have to lean toward the people having trouble with getting meds bein the ones who don't need em. Not Sayin all, but most.. How else are all these pills gettin sold on the street?
Oh an after he passed I just took his left over meds to the pharmacy. They will take the left overs & dispose of them properly. Don't flush them as they will further contaminate our water supply.

They must have had a good primary care Dr...the person I am speaking of never even had one till they got sick....so I figure that maybe the reason...their on oncologist and surgeons are from John Hopkins...and they said they would have to have a WV doctor to deal with pain...never having one and being a new patient they don't want too...and yes I do blame the damn druggies for it.

I agree... The druggies are making life harder for everyone in WV... Especially those who need meds.

These clowns only exist to write scrips for whoever will write them a check. People don't get them from a GP or family doc, because they will not write an Oxy scrip for a hangnail or some other bogus BS.

Looks like you'll have to drive to Florida for your "medicine". Pillheads.....

A woman in my family has several probs.. A knee & hip replaced, fibromyalgia, & lupus. She gets some heavy duty pain meds but her personal doc has always written the prescriptions for her monthly. Is it easier for frauds to get meds from a pain clinic? I've known of a crackhead or two who's gone to "the hope clinic."
None of those conditions warrant narcotics. Most who claim to have fibromyalgia are just pill heads and the only thing wrong with them is drug addiction. If the knee and hip have been replaced, there should not be any "heavy pain medication" given or needed, and I would check the lupus diagnosis closely, lots of times that is misdiagnosed for the ones with drug addiction problems. Fibromyalgia is the one thing that REAL doctors send up a red flag on because the drug addicted know there is no real test for it and can claim to have all the symptoms. Most misdiagnosed disease on earth. Some GOOD doctors do not even recognize it as a real disease because it seems anyone who claims to have it is a drug addict.

You know I got on the web this morning to find my father another doctor because his retired recently and I found this site. I've never been on here before but this one caught my attention because of all the comments that was made, what I can't figure out while I was reading all this drama is why some of you so-called non "pillbilly's" are even on this site to begin with, if you're not goin to this place or you're so against pain clinics and doctors that actually treat the patient to what they think they should have, not what the gov't thinks they should have, then why are you on here????? Not callin out any names but you know who you are, just read the previous 89 comments!!!!!!
