I am addicted to strong pain meds and I am tired of having to come of of them the withdrawal is awful I went to a urgent care doc and was prescribed simboxon I take anxiety meds to but he wants me to stop I really need the anxiety meds but he wants me off them how do I get him to change it from simboxon to methadone so I can take my anxietymeds ## Legally, he can't. To get Methadone for addiction treatment in the U.S. requires that you go to an actual Methadone treating clinic, private doctors aren't allowed to prescribe it for addiction treatment. What anxiety medication do you take? Did he say why he wants you to stop taking it? ## Valium and in sc he is licensed to prescribe and treat me sumboxone is like methadone it us prescribed the same as methadone ## how about for neuro...

does methadone wear off if you sleep
12 Replies RSS
I take 70mg of methadone every morning as maintenance to stay off of H. Sometimes I get tired and want to take a nap and there have been a few times that I have taken a nap in the past. Those few times when I woke up I felt like I had not had any methadone that day. Does methadone wear off when I go to sleep and why does it feel like I haven't had any even if I take a nap only 2 hours after taking it? ## Hello, Chrissy! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. No, it shouldn't do that. Did you take any other medications at that time? Did you do anything else different? Does anyone know more about this? I've heard of other medications affecting it, but not sleeping. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may c...

can i take methadone with adderall
65 Replies RSS
can you take methadone while taking adderall? ## Hi Danny, Based on my research there are no drug interactions found between Methadone and Adderall. This does not necessarily mean no interactions exist, but my sources state that every effort has been made to ensure that the information provided is accurate. On a side note, there are interactions found between certain foods or drinks and both of your medications: Regarding Methadone, it states that co-administration with grapefruit juice may increase the plasma concentrations of the drug. (So you'll want to try and avoid drinking this when your taking methadone). Regarding Adderall, it states to generally avoid alcohol, as it may potentiate the cardiovascular effects of amphetamines (although the exact mechanism of interaction is unk...

Methadone stopped my periods
158 Replies RSS
Can any of the women out there tell me if taking methadone stopped thier periods? I have been on methadone for 4 years now and as soon as I went over 35mg it completely stopped and It has not come back since. I am on 60mg now. I did get lowered to 30 mg at one time years ago and it started right up again. Does anyone know if this might be dangerous? I have asked my doctor at the meth clinic and she stated its nothing to be concerned about because I wanted to know if I should be taking something to make it start and she said no, but for some reason it seems that it just does not sound good for a natural process to stop like that and not have it do any harm. Any feedback would be appreciated. ## Hi Silvia, I was on 100mg of methadone a day for several years as part of my pain management t...

Help! methadone dialated morphine somas
6 Replies RSS
I need answers please! My mother just passed away and I believe it was from the medications she was on. She had lyme disease she said she was always in so much pain but I feel like she was on way too much medications. I believe that is what killed her..she was on methadone, morphine, dialoted, somas, sleeping pills, nerve pills. I want to know if these are even mixable? If this can cause death by taking it together? ## What have the doctors or coroners said was the cause of death? Without their agreement, you will have no case, regardless of your own suspicions. As to the Morphine, Methadone and Dilaudid, various pain medications are often used in combination, to give someone better pain control, when they suffer from a condition that causes severe, chronic pain. Are you also certain th...

I just took two ten mg methadone pills will they be out by Thursday i drink a lot of water please let me know soon as possible ## Depends on how long u took it. It has been in mu system now for over 45 days. Can't wait till its gone either. ## Take good advice-avoid opiates altogether. They can kill you. Young people are dying and becoming vegatables because of this crap. ## If you haven't been taking it everyday, for a long period of time it should be gone in a few days. Find a test at the drug store before having some1 else test you. ## I don't know where these people get their information. I could go into this long explanation of the half life of a pill times 5, but I don't want to confuse anyone. Just remember this, the basic rule of thumb is 60 to 72 hours on everyt...

Methadone / Help
1 Reply RSS
I am on 58mg of Methadone and I have been on it a year. It does not help with pain for me. I did this on my own to see if it would help me. I was taking 4mg of Hydromorphone for pain before. Now I want off the Methadone but my doctor is telling me I have to go to a non opioid pain clinic for pain. What is that??? I need opioids to help with pain. What do I do?? ## Steve, Sorry to hear about the difficulties your experiencing. It's tragic when doctors prescribe potent pharmaceutical's such as hydromorphone and methadone then cut you loose. It sounds as if He wants you to see what's known as an interventional pain clinic where they utilize treatments to relief the pain rather then traditional opioids and opiates.Sadly it appears he no longer in comfortable prescribing these na...

Need a good dr in the medford grants pass oregon area. ## Hi Gia, In regards to finding a pain doctor, I have listed below a couple websites specific to locating pain management doctors in a given area. All you have to do is input your city or zip code for narrowed results: {link removed because site no longer exists} You can give this other page a try too if you come up with different results for some reason or another: wellness.com/find/pain%20management%20specialist Many of the results you find (in one or both of the links above) also list a phone number for that specific doctor; I'd suggest calling up a number of them to see if they prescribe the type of medication you are seeking to manage your pain. You may also have to ask if they are accepting new patients, as some aren'...

Prescribed Methadone for Chronic pain, how long wloud it take for percacet to get out of my system if used just once(prescription was stolen)
20 Replies RSS
I have a script for methadone for chronic pain and have been on vacation, well someone was nice enough to steal my last two days worth of meds here on vaca, well my partner has 15 mg oxycodone that I can take to help me thru till we get home yet I am weary due to my doc appt in ten days, will a days worth of perks be gone in ten days not using them on a reg basis? Or should I try n tough it out. ## Most narcotics are out of your system, for a standard urine test, within 4 to 5 days after taking them. However, you could run into a problem with not having the Methadone in your system on the test, as most doctors use these tests to make sure someone is actually taking their prescription medication and not selling it. Your best bet would be to report the theft to your doctor, immediately. A...

I am very concerned. My Dr. started me on methadone at 5 mg 2x per day. 4 days later I had a urine test and the methadone did not show up. now my Dr. is concerned that I am not following treatment and I have been following it as I was told to. does anyone have have any idea as to why methadone would not show up in a pee test? ## go to google search bar and type in why doesn`t methadone show up in a urine test? you will get lots of answers, hope you find one that helps you. phenix134 ## some people detoxify faster than others, it depends on the amount of fluid intake, amount of work or exercise, some medications even have been ineffective, if DR. raises the issue again ask that he perform a observation test where he or his nurse actually watch you consume it an draw blood or urine, after...

Doctors in Louisiana that prescribe methadone for chronic pain
304 Replies RSS
I have been taking 120 mg of methadone for approximately 5 years. My husbands job transferred us from Florida to Louisiana where I found a pretty good pain doc. He is now running scared and wants to take me off of methadone. Methadone has given me a good quality of life; I am able to work and be a productive member of society. My doctor is unwilling or unable to assist me in finding a new doctor who will continue my meds. Oh yeah, I have been the route of blocks and injections and gotten little if any relief. I'm tired of being branded a drug seeker-I have years of medical records that back up my claims and verify the dosages that I've been on-what drug seekers have this kind of back up? I am looking for a Louisiana doctor, but am willing to travel (within reason of course). Ple...

MY HUSBAND HAS BLADDER CANCER AND WAS PRESCRIBED 20 MG OF METHADONE EVERY MORNING. HE WAS ALSO GIVEN MORPHIN SULFATE 60 MGS TWICE A DAY. HOW SHOULD THESE MEDICINES BE TAKEN. ## Debra,i dont know why his dr. prescibed both Methadone and Morphine.The Meth. is known to block or cancel out the effects of the Morphine. ## i take 30mg 6 times aday plus 135mg of methadone a day for stomach cancer pain is it safe what are the dangers ## First of all methadone is not a blocker. People mistake it for suboxone because they are both used in opiate withdraw treatment. They first made methadone in world war II...when China cut Germany off from poppy trade. Hitler had his science goons make somthing to substitute opiate pain killers and Bam methadone is born. First used as a pain killer for many years...

WHAT COMPANY MAKES THESE ASC 116 AND WHEN DID THEY COME OUT ON THE MARKET? ## January, 2012 ## That date is correct and the manufacturer is Ascend Laboratories, LLC. ## What is the difference between this pill and the 10mg methadone white round pill labled 54/142 and scored on the other side, is it just the manufacturer?
