Pain Management Specialist

Can't Post | Private Reply
Hi -- Does anyone know if there are any Pain Management Specialist doctors (preferably bilingual English / Spanish) in the Lake Chapala area? Or, any recommendations for one in Guadalajara?

It is my limited understanding that in Mexico, pain management doctors are typically anesthesiologists because they are the only ones who can prescribe Class 2 / Schedule 2 pain medications. True? If so, are those medications readily available at most pharmacies? Any cost examples?

Thank you all.

“True?“ Yes, that is true.
“...readily available at most pharmacies?“ No, definitely not.

There is a dr. that is a pain secialist in Ajijic his name is Dr. Lastra. I do not know about his credentials so you would have to check him out.He has been around for quite a while and has a consulario on Constiution.

My husband was under the care of a pain secialist at Hospital Country 2000 in Guadalajara her name is Dra Karla Madrigal Renteria,, and she is an anesthesiologist. She speaks English.
No the medecines are not easily accessible at pharmacies. My husband was
administered morhine and other pain medecine. No idea what the cost is as all the medecine cost was lumped together.

the medication that you speak of can only be dispensed at hospital farmacias and prescribed by doctors with special licenses.
lertus cd can be prescribed by any doctor or dentist, and you can get it at regular farmacias by rx only. 50mg/codeino y 50 mg diclofenaco.

I have seen on other fórum posts from people using restricted medecines saying that the farmacies now require a CURP number which means that´people who are not residents will not have Access to that kind of medecine .

Contrary to what is being diseminated by one "resident expert" on his website - apparently the gun went off early? Clarification posted on another forum by Intercasa:
"We have verified with COFEPRIS (The Mexican equivalent of the FDA) that the CURP field on the doctors online prescription system is optional and is verifiable on their web page at http://www.cofepris.gob.mx/...ectr%C3%B3nicos.aspx and downloading their user manuals for Pharmacies http://www.cofepris.gob.mx/.../ManualFarmacias.pdf and looking on page 13 where it says optional fields and one being the CURP number, best for people to print that page to be able to show Pharmacies that the CURP is not a mandatory field."
