What other medication besides Oxycodone can help in pain management?

I have chronic pain 24/7, %365.. I am taking oxycodone and want to know what other pain medication can be prescribed with oxycodone to relieve this horrible pain. I need to know what can be prescribed according to Medicaid or Medicare. I am so miserable. I ve tried OTC lidocaine 4% patches, they don t work. What other drug, even if a low dose can help me?

You can consider higher end analgesics like gabapentin or hydrocodone. In severe cases you can try ketamine sublingual preparation after discussing with your physician.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Yes hello, i was recently discarded from my pain clinic due to them going thru so many doctors in such a short time approximately 6 or 7 in 5 months time and of course with that many theres going to be many characteristics and personalities of doctors and well the truth of what happened is, they were leaving at noon on my appointment day, i was weighed, an which if i have a urine analysis im always given it after im weighed, that day i wasnt because i wsnt due for another 2 months as i get one every 3 months. Well i asked once in ym room if i could use the restroom since i didnt have a ua that day they said thats fine. doctor came in, wrote my my medicine scripts, then i was on my way out the door an she said wait a minute we need to give you a ua, an im like what the heck i just went, she said well we re leaving in a little over 5 minunutes if you cant use it in that time frame, im afraid we re going to have to let you go an refer you somewhere else an wish you good luck....well unfortnately i couldnt use it on demand in a lil over 5 minute with only one cup of water that i was provided. Somy question is, im in tennessee, ive been on pain management from being in the army an the VA wasnt all it was cracked up to be they just wanted to keep me on drugs to keep me sedated pretty much, so methadone was the only drug that i found that not only worked for me but allowed me to go to work an to attend my normal job as a single parent. An no i have one number they gave me that 100% writes the medicine methadone that ive been on since 2005 since i was out of the army and they wont take me without a referal, problem is the va wont give me one, an its like playing the lottery of pick an choose of trying to find one who will give me one, do you have any suggestions of pain management clnincs in tennessee that would write that particular medication. any help would be greatly appreciated. i have all my army discharge paperwork, my mris and nerve tests and xrays asw ell an surely thats enugh for anywhere i could go i just need a direction to stawrt in. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your help and your time.
