Hi I am new to pain management both this community & as a patient. I am trying to make sense of the things I am seeing posted here, and can't. On hand we have patients saying follow the rules & you'll get your meds. On the other we are not going to give you meds because you are an addict.

I recently have come to need extended release MS Cotin & OXI for break through pain.

Also it there members of this community in MI. would you be so kind as to give me a heads up on what to expect

PS I can not spell and my grammar is horrible 8^}

Put "Minnesota Revised Statues AND prescription drugs" in your search bar. Also, look up what the laws are governing pain management clinics, the Prescription Monitoring Program, etc. Also go to the DEA website for the Federal Laws on Schedule II meds and the laws physicians must go by. Read it for yourself. That way you will know exactly what the laws do and don't say.

Also if you've signed a Pain Contract with your dr, get a copy of it and memorize it. Go by it exactly, unless your doctor tells you otherwise and if he does have him amend your pain contract. Notice, I said your dr, that does not mean the dr nurse or office staff.
