Being told by pain management doctors I’ve consulted when moving to another state that with combination of Morphine Sulphate ER (just removed from Oxycontin ER) for keeping all pain level throughout the day with Norco for breakthrough, that the Soma/Carisoprodol I’ve also been taking — all meds on & off over 20 years now — for the horrible muscle spasms in my back and radicular pain in my leg (due to scar tissue enveloping my sciatic nerve that CANNOT be removed) that the Soma “will kill me” and that it will no longer be manufactured thereby... that’s it, end of story, you CANNOT have what has been WORKING!! Has anyone else been told the same? How is it I am not dead?? Is it that by removing what works for me and will obviously put me in more pain and make me even less active better for the U.S. government and State law now that my doctors are AFRAID to give us what works so they can CYA??? I am livid as this new doctor and clinic I moved to after an awful experience with another, has left me in a lurch by not even allowing a taper and/or alternative. Although, yet again, pressure, pressure, pressure to try a SCS. I have done extensive research on these devices and after 2 psych evals have proven I am NOT a candidate, these doctors seemingly are taking away the medications that WORK and push these UNWANTED devices!! Anyone having same issues... NOT being prescribed Soma/Carisoprodol and/or be pressured to have a SCS implant?
