boater, it's not the DEA that good pain doctors are worried about. In the past 10 years we've seen heart problems in some people who use methadone. So far these problems, which include death, are not well understood, but there is a correlation with methadone.
I too had good results with methadone, and sometimes would like to return -- I was treated for 12 years, and rotated to other opiates 4 years ago. Personally, I'm going to wait until we get more information.
Thanks for clarification Phil. ECGs are mandatory and lifesaving.
Have you found a new Dr. In hermitage area? The clinic you speak of i went to an they did the same to me but it was a lortab they say i had taken which i know was a lie. I had reported them for stealing my pills every time they did a pill count i would come up short a few pills. I finally told them by law they were required by law to count them in front of me. I got dismissed shortly after that. For the so called lortab showing up in my **** test.
Sorry, openboater has not been active since this one and only thread a year ago.
Sometime is you leave a note on their Profile Page a notice will be generated and they respond.
I'm sorry to hear about the horrible experience you had with that clinic. I hope you and ppl like openboater are reporting these clinics. The powers that be may not always listen to one complaint but when the get two, three or more there is usually an investigation.
You absolutely correct. By law they have to count your opiate medications in your presence. We should never allow anyone - including medical staff to remove our opiates from our sight - for any reason! Bad things can happen - and we are always wrong - and they are always right!
