This Is a good Doctor. I see this man every month. I spent to many years in the low coal and have bad arthritis problems. I can't take any type of Arthritis medication because of kidney problems. pain medication is all I can take. as far as any fights you have more fights inside walmart. does this stop you from going to walmart? until this problem I never tasted any beer, wine. or whiskey in my life. I never smoked anything either. I know there Is a terrible drug problem in our area. there also are people that have a just cause for needing pain medication. you also will be drug tested by this doctor to see if you are taking your medication, It like being hurt at work or in and automobile accident. If a doctor in this this area knows you have been hurt in either of these accidents you are treated like you have aids. they don,t want to be put up with having to fill any type of form on this type of thing or go to court. It,s sad but this Is the type doctors you have In this area.

if hes helping your pain then that is good, but, i have heard the way he talks to people and if i were his patient he would have gotten told where to stick his pills
if hes in a bad mood, he should take five mins to chill out before going into see a patient

That's bull! If a doctor writes oxycodone he can't write 'em like that or the D.E.A. would be up in there taking all record's computer's etc....You're just someone who got cut off because your drug test was off or else you didn't comply in some other way!!!

I know a lot of people that get prescribed meds like that. I know some that get lorcet, percocet, zanax, and muscles relaxers. I know people who get pecocets and roxys, I know people who get a combination of things that no person would need. They call one the break thru pain medicine. So you take the major pill on schedule and then you use the lesser one in between for "break-thru" pain, which I think is a joke. I am nearly crippled, I have done the pain clinic thing, physical therapy, even dr. gutti's shots, and honestly, Nothing works. Pain meds did nothing but get me addicted. luckily I was smart enough to recognize the first signs of addiction and get myself off of them. The shots worked for a little bit, but eventually wore off and I was in worse shape than I was to start with. Physical therapy was okay, but not effective enough for me to continue paying for. So now, I take over the counter motrin and tylenol and that is all. Pain management is a joke if you ask me. If you want to manage your pain, learn to deal with it. Some injuries are short lived and medication might help. Others are life long, and nothing will work for them. Pain management is the reason there are so many addicts around here. Granted some have actual problems and didn't intend to become addicts, and some don't even realize they are addicted, but in the end, they are just that. Some have no injury or pain at all, but go to the doctors so that they can get the prescriptions and sell them to avoid an honest day's work. the thing is, even if you have a serious problem (as I do and have seen for myself), you begin taking the medicine as it is prescribed, then it doesn't work because your body gets used to it, so you have to take more. This continues until one pill a day isn't enough and eventually, you take 2 or 3 at a time, several times a day and when you don't take them anymore, you get seriously ill. So you start taking them just to avoid the dt's. If you are smart enough to see this, and have the will power to overcome it, you can get off of them, but some don't have that ability and end up being an addict. Regardless of why you start going there, you will end up an addict if you continue. That's how they make their money. And those shots that dr. gutti pushes, well, the reason he pushes them is that they cost so much. That's where he makes a killing. Pain clinics cause drug addiction. Bottom line. Sorry if this offends anyone. but even if you are offended, you still know it's true.

Injection happy

You can bet he will write prescriptions, then he is injection happy at over $3000 each. He has no interest in pain management, unless it has to do with his bank account. Ask for a copy of your medical records, guarantee your insurance is billed for regular injections, whether you have them or not, It happened to me, and I refused the injections from day one, needless to say I found a new Dr.

What silly people like you can't comprehend is the fact that not everybody is the exact same as you. Every single person responds differently. What helps you may not help someone else. What6 doesn't help you might be perfect for another. I've heard enough nonsense from people like you it makes me sick. A friend was bed fast until oc's came out. Within three months he was out walking around, first time in years he was able to get out of the house. Some respond to medication while others don't, you just happen to be the latter. It has no bearing on what helps others.

Some people do NEED pain medication, but some doctors give them WAY TOO MUCH of it and they know it! I'm not saying that's what Dr. Gutti did or does, but some doctors definitely do.

I didn't suggest that what helps me would help others. I didn't suggest your friend do without his medicines because I do. My point, if you took the time to read the entire post, was simply that pain clinics lead to addiction. It's a wonderful thing that your friend is able to be up and about now. But honestly, what would happen if he didn't take the medicine for a day now that he has been taking it. I would never suggest testing this because if he didn't take it, he would be in pain, but I would be willing to bet that if he didn't have it, he would be sick. DT'ing in fact. Because once your body gets used to it, you have to have it. And again, if you read my post, I would also be willing to bet that your friend would be one of those who didn't intend to be an addict and may not know he is, but that is what happens with repeated treatment with pain medications. Silly people like me know this, as do silly people like you. but you want to defend the pain clinics because your friend can walk, and God bless you for it. Atleast you stand up for your own. Many around her won't even do that anymore. Pain medicine is the reason my cousin can move too, since he suffers from constant pain, real pain. But without his medications, while he is in pain, he is also sitting on the toilet with his head in the garbage can because he gets so sick. So while he does need the medicine for a legitimate reason, like your friend apparently does, he is still an addict because of them. He didn't want to be an addict, but he is. I am not so self righteous that I believe others should do what I did, but I do believe people should consider the effects of addiction when going to such a place. I mean, you may have pain relief, but the ultimate question is, Is it worth it. For me it wasn't. I would rather deal with pain than be an addict. My choice, and your free to make yours. Believe me, there are many days when I would donate my liver to have complete relief from pain. I simply choose not to use narcotics as a means of getting that relief. Again, my choice. I know that pain management leads to addiction, and eventually, all of those who continue to visit the clinics will have to deal with that addiction.

I have gone to Dr Gutti some years ago. I was never gave any narcotics nor did he try to give me any. I was there to be treated for RA..And was gave prescription only for RA.So grow and quit talking about things you do not know...You all need to get a job and stay out of other business.....

anyone who can get off taken pain medication didn't need it to start with. unless it is a temporary Injury. as far as the Injections Dr shockey put two in my shoulder before I could have surgery on it and they eat half the muscle out of my arm. the reason I had surgery on it was I wore it out. I had bone rubbing against bone. I have worked every sense I was 10 years old we didn't have no central air hot water heater or inside toilet and we raised most of food In the garden, five years of high school football and 25 years working In low coal and a kidney transplant with heavy doses of anti rejection steroids will do your body In. I have one kidney now and I,m not to put any more medication threw it than I need to. I also suffered all the pain I,m going to even If I got to make the medication my self. If you don,t need it leave it out of your body, don't talk about other people until you have walked a few miles in there shoes.

I have no experience with oxycodone, but what I have heard is that roxy's are roxicodone. oxy, roxy and percocet are all made from oxycodone. Oxycontin is a very high dosage, percocet is a low dosage and roxy is in between. But like I said, that is just what I was told. you could probably google oxycodone or go to webmd.com if you wanted to check it out further.

Thanks for the info. i don't do pills so I don't know much about them. I've just always heard people calling oxycontins oxys or oc's, never "roxys", lol.

A roxy or a roxicet is pure oxycodone IR. Percocets are cut with tylenol. Roxy`s are cut with nothing, they are pure instant release oxycodone. They come in 15 an 30 mg tablets. Dr. Willis at Pikeville Pain Management prescribes them, this really surprises me in Pikeville. I know quite a few people who get them, and really their not hurt that bad.

I think people who need it should get it and it's a tragedy that those who are going to the pill doc for income cause those of us who live in pain to have to struggle to be taken seriously. I have a severely messed up back and I actually had a dr tell me one time it was all in my head. if that was the case, it would be my head hurting, not my back and legs, right? I'm glad you can get help with what is so obviously a very painful issue, but be careful with all that medicine. Not only does it cause addiction, but it will ruin your liver and cause long term issues if you let it.

If a person is bed fast I would think addiction would be the least of their worries if it allows them to walk again. Liver damage is mainly the result of Hydrocodone and Oxycodone that is mixed with Acetaminophen, which is the real killer. You don't have to take prescription drugs to suffer liver damage as otc drugs will do the exact same thing. I knew of a gentleman who was like several of you and refused to take any prescriptions, but took around eight Acetaminophen tablets a day to help with the pain. He ended up having a liver transplant to save his life. It is ridiculous to mix this drug with something people have to take daily. The alternatives will eat your stomach out.
