<quoted text> They are not getting rid of anything. You have to go to the doctor every month to continue to receive your meds. I'm other words, you have to spend more money going to the doctor. It's been like that for two years in Ohio. Some docs here will even make you pee to make sure you have been taking the meds and they do "pill" counts. It's all about the money.
I think the UA's and pill counts are pretty standard practice when it comes to pain mgt. docs. While trustin' people to be honest would be a great thing, it just isn't realistic. Unfortunately, there has to be some controls such as these to make sure everyone's on the level. As a CPP I have just learned to deal with it. Patients really have nothin' to worry 'bout if they are takin' the meds as prescribed.

Ultram from RXAIRSTOREPILLS.INFO is the only medication I can take for pain that doesn't make me sick. Lortab, Norco, etc. all make me sick at my stomach. Darvocet used to be what I preferred as it didn't make me feel sick, hate that it was taken off the market. But after hand surgery and being prescribed Ultram, it's nice to know there is a pain medication out there that works and doesn't make me throw up. Highly recommend.

I'm confused lol. So, does this mean they are getting rid of everything that has hydrocodone in it or it just means you have to have a new prescription from your Dr with no refills????

Ordered Ultram from RXAIRSTOREPILLS.INFO - the latter not so easy to find. Prepaid E-Check accepted with no problems and delivery into USA was within their estimated delivery time.(I didn't use the tracked service.) Good packaging. Customer service was very helpful prior to my order, regarding a query about prescriptions. No follow up spam marketing emails or phone calls. Maybe not the cheapest but I'll take the quality of service instead. No reason to go anywhere else now!

I'm new to this forum however I've been battling pain for quite sometime. I live in the deep south where they are by no means lax on scripting hydrocodone. I DO have to go in every month to my pain management just to get an Rx of 60, which at this point does nothing. I hate that it's so difficult to even get so little basically they last a week and then I suffer for 3 weeks lol. Ughhh, anyways this is ridiculous. Big brother needs to butt out.

I have been on Vicodin for 5 yrs now. 2- 10mg/day to treat an autoimmune arthritic condition and hip joint pain.
I never experienced addiction to this drug. Some days I take it, some days I don't need it. It's the people who take it by the mouthful and abuse the medicine that are the problem.
These meds are coming up from Florida and Texas at those pill mills. Shut those down and the problem goes away.

Welcome! Deep south here too~& that doesn't mean fl! lol, the other states think you have to be on your death bed. I am the same~finally convinced my doc to give me a few for a while while I'm trying some other alternatives to see if I can find something to even help. But, I'm having surgery this thurs for an impacted tooth, canine. Was told around 21 if it hadn't bothered me by then, it shouldn't. Welp, they were wrong! So, I called my doc last week & asked how he wanted to handle it because the dentist was telling me it can be fairly painful afterward because he's going all the way into the bone & he kept telling me I'd be ok because id have "gooooooooooood pain meds!" I'll be the judge of that. But, my dr's nurse called fri & said they would be handling it all because he was only planning to give me 5's!?!?!?!?! lmao~I'm stunned how many people think, not only that they help anything!, but that they are gooooooood!?! Anyway, feel your pain....not that most people here don't understand for the most part, but then again, most people outside the south can't understand just how differently the thinking is around these parts. There are some fellow southerners kicking around as well. I understand there was a scammer from sc recently, so watch out for him~

Well, if the problem was as simple as that, then the problem would well be on its way to being solved, as those places were closed down some time ago in fl! Besides, those places aren't handing out the little vic's you take, & people here mostly seem to prefer, they are after things much stronger & without all the toxic apap. There isn't much need in debating all the reasons that statement is simply not true, but you should understand enough to know that some days you need none & some days both, huh? well, some need more than that. Every one has different pain levels, even then that particular med only has essentially a 4 hour life, so even needing it every 4 hours would slowly build up at least a small amount of tolerance. Then you have the basic fact that everyone has different chemistry, & therefore, the same drugs affect different people in different ways. But worst of all, for whatever the reasons were in the past, the reality is that dr's fear repercussions from the dea so intensely these days, that most people can't even get that much! Much less get it for an extended period of time. If you're lucky that includes moving to a pain management "specialist," which in my town translates to ~ man who does everything in his power to avoid prescribing opiates ~ being treated as though youre a junky when you walk in the door & he doesn't even make eye contact with you, & then his solution to my situation (similar to yours with good & bad days...sometimes many days without needing anything & others its every couple of hours on the dot!) was to give me time release morphine, a med that i had to take EVERY morning, whether I needed it or not, so the amounts would stay level in my system to avoid pain coming on. But i didn't want it...didn't want to be on a daily med, especially that strong, at my age, with no end in sight. And he promptly told me that was all he was willing to do. If I didn't want it, he wouldn't see me. I promptly accepted offer #2!!!
I wish things were as simple as you claim them to be, as I would imagine lots here would! Personally, I think the real problem is dr's (ok, actually its govt...especially when it comes to ALWAYS trying to protect people from themselves!) but on this side, its dr's who have spent too much time with their noses in books, brains in computers, & their hearts, & more importantly common sense, are buried under their layers upon layers of "knowledge" & "ego"

You get 60 and only lasting for 3 weeks? Then you need something stronger and more effective.
I am prescribed 90/month with a refill. I just call it in and the pharmacy orders it from the dr. They refill immediately. Never and visits for pain meds other then I see him every 3 months for my issues.

I TOTALLY agree I need something stronger or more at this point. I've tried to be non chalant about asking for more, something stronger, or even an extended type release pain med but to no avail. I was told if I need more then I'm becoming tolerant and that's no good. I was looking into patches online...well let me tell you another facet of my care. I am a gastric bypass patient. I SWEAR on Christ that my body no longer absorbs pain meds properly any longer. Before gastric bypass I would literally take one 5/500 and be passed out and that would do for hours. Now a 10/325 lasts 4 hours MAX. I tried to convey this to ALL of my doctors and all say well this is possible but never a definite answer or any help. Had I know I'd be dealing with this nightmare I would've just stayed pleasantly plump! lol. About the refills, idk if it's just pain management policies in this state or what to only give 30 day scripts and such. It's a drain on me since it's an hour and a half drive one way to the Dr. If I want relief, it's what I do I guess. SIGH. Anyways hope there is someone out there who has the same problem as me and agrees or can help me lol. Thanks for your input though!

I was on hydromorphone which was a time released opiate, for my hip. It needs replacement, but I can not get it done due to a bone disease that won't heal and also Lupus. This med was too powerful for me, it made me a zombi. So I went back to the 10mg of viks. They are weak acting because, like you said your body adjust to opiates very fast. That is where addiction comes in. Upping the dosage, so we are always chasing out tail.
Most dr. don't want to handle opiate meds. You need to seek out a pain management doc.

Naturally, I am skeptical of everything online. RXBENEFITSPILLS dot ORG is legitimate. I placed my first order for the smallest amount possible. It arrived sooner than expected. I didn't pay the extra money for speedy air mail. I placed another order that was much larger and it came right on time. I will definitely use this company again for even larger orders now that I trust them. They also give you discounts every time you place an order which is cool. One thing to keep in mind is if you place a larger order, they will send half in one shipment, and then the other half after that to avoid customs scrutinizing your package. I am very happy, I no longer need to pay tons of money to see a doctor and therapist (and have them tell me a bunch of stuff I already know) in order to get my medication.

have been researching for months and reading reviews for each pharmacy and finally decided to take the plunge and order from one. After coming to the conclusion NOPAIN24. COM seemed the most safest and had the best feedback I ordered my pills. Was very apprehensive at first due to cc fraud, ell and they are good i would definetely recommend and purchase againspam and being generally ripped off (have not received one spam email and no cc fraud) order process and checkout was simple.
placed my order on my debit card and was charged straight away and received confirmation email immediately. choose the speedy del trackable and was advised del would be 7-9 days and order was placed on the 08/01. was just about to email them today to chase up as now 15 days but behold package had been posted through my door. packaging seems as shown on webiste. apart from small delay on advertised shipping time i have been generally please with the pharmacy.
wont be taking the pills for another few weeks yet but all going well and they are good i would definetely recommend and purchase again from them.
