I am seeing this new doctor today and am told he will prescribe opiates if I provide evidence I am already on them or anything else for that matter. In that vein I am going specifically to ask him to prescribe Subutex. I know he prescribes it too but not sure about the DEA problem like I had with the previous doc. Even with the DEA letter he was too afraid. Anyway from every conversion thing I read that I could find and there were few, It looks like 3.6mg would be an equivalent dose. Of course at least as a [pill it does not come in this dose anyway. I read one is supposed to start with less than equivalent dose when changing pain meds. Any suggestions on how to "manipulate" the conversation with him to my advantage. (Him prescribing the Subutex) And suggestion as to starting dose? I plan on bringing a copy of the letter with me bu perhaps it would be better not to bring it up unless absolutely necessary? I want to ask him for something to sleep too. Perhaps it would be advisable to do one thing at a time and not bring that up today? Of course I will be influenced by his demeanor ect. Originally I wanted to try it because my urologist suggested it for pan and it was suggested on this site on theory that t*t might work better with Amineptine. I also thought it might help with any tolerance as I will be taking opiates probably the rest of my life. Recently I have had to increase my oxycontin use from 20mg bid to 30mg bid. The last month or so after about 5 years use. But in the last few weeks I had a lot of breakthrough pain and was very depressed and started snorting my 5mg ir oxys. The last week or so I started snorting 10 or 15mg at a time and not of pain necessity. I think it would be better if I left this information out today, although it might be usefull?

My appointment is at 1pm. I know this is last minute so no one might get to this before I go. It would be appreciated if anyone has the time.
