Legal for PAIN CLINIC to verbally discharge you and refuse Rxs?

Posted by treziesmom @treziesmom, Sep 9, 2020

I have been a patient at a pain clinic for 4 years, getting prescriptions from them for Oxycodone/Acetaminophen 10/325 mg. and 12 hour Morphine 15 mg. each month. I am elderly and ill and have had numerous surgeries. I have never used any drugs socially, and all of my drug tests have been ok. The clinic verbally discharged me about two weeks ago and refuses to give me an appointment to get my Rxs which are due in a few days. I did verbally behave inappropriately at last appointment due to extenuating circumstances and mental health issues. I am terrified and don't know what to do. I can't just quit these meds. Any suggestions?

@ellens Do you need a referral? I am able to call a specialist directly and get an appointment if needed.

Not right now, thanks. I do live in Duluth and so far have enough pain meds but will definitely keep you in mind and will keep your message.


@treziesmom I was wondering what the outcome to your problem of no pain management doctor? I do hope you have found someone to prescribe what you need.
