Doctors in Michigan that prescribe methadone
670 Replies RSS
I'm interested in finding a private doctor's office (not a clinic) that will prescribe methadone. I can't afford these clinics! Does anyone know of a doctor??? ## I am a full time student and a single mother, I need assistance in finding a doctor who prescribes methodone because with my schedule and trandportation I cannot go to the Methadone Clinic anymore. ## Katy did What do you take methadone for? If you take it for opiate addiction, you won';t be able to find a doctor to prescribe it for you because a doctor can only write it for chronic pain. As for money, by the time you pay to see a doctor (Pain managment is a specialty) it will cost you more than going to the clinic. Most pain managment doctors charge $100.00+ each month plus the medication, and another problem ...

90 Replies RSS
Hello,I'm in servere pain.Need doctors from Youngstown Ohio Canton Akron+Cleveland+western Pa.My doctor got arrested now I'm left with no doctor. Anyone know where I could go? Please let me know. Thank you. Tim ## May I ask the name of the Dr you were seeing? I don't think I'm supposed to drop names here but I'd be happy to give you names of those located here. You can very likely do a Google search for pain managers in the area. Why not have your pcp refer you somewhere? You're going to need some kind of referral there's no question of that. They don't make appointments for new patients over the phone without a faxed referral and very likely will request the records come from the referring Dr. Why? They don't trust that the patient hasn't made ch...

the difference between asc and 54 labeled methadone
1 Reply RSS
What is the difference between the ASC\116 and the 54 labled methadone? I am used to the 54's and this time i was given the ASC's and got really nauseous.. Is there a different ingredient that would cause this? And I took the same dose..10 mlgrms\one. ## Under the Hatch-Waxman Act of 1984, generics are allowed to differ in the amount of the active ingredient, by as much as plus or minus 20% and they do not have to measure against each other, only against the name brand, so sometimes you can end up with one that's a bit stronger and may cause more side effects than the prior one that you were taking, which could explain the nausea. The FDA warns that this medication may be habit forming and could cause other side effects, such as dizziness, drowsiness, headache, dry mouth and...

Are Doctors beginning to NOT prescribe methadone anymore for chronic pain?
39 Replies RSS
I am 56 years old and am disabled due to a work-related injury therefore I am rich by no means! I have heard that they are considering taking methadone off the market due to too many overdose issues, plus people on it, get a prescription filled and sell it for profit making it even harder for folks like me who take my meds honestly as prescribed. If Methadone is removed from the market, what am I supposed to do? I already know I can not go off this stuff cold turkey and am scared. Does anyone know any doctors in the Warner Robins-Macon, GA area that prescribe Methadone ILLEGITIMATELY? I am not looking to sell meds, I just want to be sure I will not be in pain. I've been on Methadone since November 2008 and so far it works fine for me. I just neeed a backup plan just in case that doe...

Are there any other questions or comments? ## Yeah, 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?

Doctors in Louisiana that prescribe methadone for chronic pain
294 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...

I am havin stomach cramps, runny nose, cold sweats/chills but no diarrhea yet. My refill date is in three days for my methadone and I'm also worried about how the affect will be and long I need to wait before I can take my methadone again...? I only want to take the subs to get by this 3-4 day withdrawal. Honest and accurate opinions, please! I've been on Mdone for 10 years at 120mg a day. ## @Trapped, I've been browsing through some of the related threads here and I'm seeing the vast majority of patients who've gone from Methadone to Suboxone predominately state that you should wait at least 48 hours after your last dose of Methadone before having Suboxone. (i.e. waiting until you're in a state of withdrawal; otherwise the Suboxone won't work). Concerning yo...

How Long Does Methadone Stay In Your System For A Urine Test

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 and xanax
14 Replies RSS
I found a doctor I love but he doesn't know I'm on Methadone. He prescribes me 90 Xanax whichwhichneed because of severe anieyy. Should I tell him or will he dump Mr as a patient ## I always say that it's best to be upfront and honest, especially if you truly like this doctor and want to gain long term trust. Not telling your doctor about this will probably remain on your mind and be a burden every time you visit him/her. Personally, I think if you suffer from anxiety/depression and need a Benzodiazepine class medication (like Klonopin (Clonazepam) or Xanax), your best bet it usually to see a psychiatrist, rather than a regular medical doctor. They are better trained in the types of medications that handle these problems and can also help you treat the underlying cause of yo...

Liquid METHADONE TO GO ON HOLIDAY
13 Replies RSS
i have booked a family holiday for two weeks in lanzarote and have been told today that im not allowed to take my 150mg daily does with me because the doctor thinks i should go to detox first are they allowed to do this ## Your doctor isn't obligated to treat you or provide you with any medications, whatsoever, so yes, they certainly can. The only time any doctor is obligated to treat you is if you're in life threatening danger. Providing you with a medication such as this is not something they have to do. Learn more Methadone details here. And, if they did provide you with enough doses for a 2 week travel period, he could be held responsible if something untoward were to happen. I'm sorry, I realize it creates complications for you, but that's just the way it works. How...

Is anyone living in Alabama getting pill cuts of methadone? My doctor told me it was because of Governor Bentley signing in new opiate restriction for all pain doctors. (Not Clinics).

I know I have done nothing wrong so I just wanted to see if anyone else is being cut also...

Private Methadone Doctors
41 Replies RSS
Hello. I am a 26 year old male who has been struggling with opiate addiction for about a decade. Recently I tried the suboxone program which helped to a degree, but meds were way to expensive as well as the Drs appointment. So I am looking for help with my disease and I would like to know if methadone is the right route for me to go. Thanks ## Methadone does help many people and it can be cheaper than Suboxone, however, you will more than likely still have to visit a doctor or clinic regularly. The main drawback to Methadone is that it can also be quite an addictive substance and people that is use it usually end up requiring a lifetime maintenance dose of it, while Suboxone can be slowly tapered and enable the person to eventually become completely drug free. Have you tried consulting ...
