Thank you for your explanation about
I've always been afraid of it. And, of course, more so now.
I am not considering the pain pump until I have an MD talk to me about
the dangers of Methadone with a pump. He/she is going to have to talk
low and slow so I understand every single word.
I have read that once on Methadone. Always on Methadone.
Not too long ago I went to the ER with terrible pain. Pain that needed
opiod medication. I didn't get any because I was on Methadone.
The doctor who first prescribed Methadone did his work out of a well known,
well respected pain clinic. I guess people from all over go to this place.
Now that I've moved away from him, my new pain doctor continues to
prescribe it but I'm just not so sure he understands its effects.
My doctor specializes in pain pumps and he does not prescribe methadone
to his patients who aren't ready for it. He prescribes Oxycondone .. things
