Hi,this is my first time in a chat room.
I have become totally frustrated with my pain doctor, even to the point on anger.He makes me feel guilty for having to use narcotic pain meds, but they are the only drugs that have helped me. I was on a stable dose of Kadian for four years until that doctor was driven out of business by the Regulators, DEA, I don't really know. Now I'm on a Kadian dose that is less than half of my previous dosage and it is totally inadequate. I don't know how my dose compares to others, so I'm in the dark and hopefully someone on this site can give me some guidance on what to do. Can a doctor be sued for not treating you adequately due to fear of regulators? It really comes down to that. My doctor says that he is scrutinized so intently that he is fearful of increasing prescription dosages. He says that the regulators only want to see reductions is medication. Thank you for listening.
