i tested positive for methadone and suboxone at rehab but have never taken that before
4 Replies RSS
I tested positive for suboxin and methadoane at rehab and im probation and im already being revoked but seems how I tested positive for this will my probation officer put me in jail the next time I go see her ## HELP! I have NEVER taken Suboxone in my life. I've never even seen it in real life. After 5 years of clean urine screens for pain management, I suddenly tested positive for it in June. I swore to my doctor I hadn't taken Suboxone or anything else not prescribed to me (because it was and is true) he said he had never seen a false positive but that he was inclined to believe me and would run more specific tests. I went back in a few days ago and he said that I had tested positive a second time, that Suboxone contains a very specific molecule that cannot be misidentified an...

Is methadone completly out of your system in 72 hours, or does it take longer since methadone seems to last longer that 4 - 6 hours? ## Although your system can rid itself of the methadone within about 72 hours in most cases, traces of it will still be detected in your urine for up to 3 weeks...longer if you get a blood test. ## It took me 3 months to kick methodone. After that, I had paws for another 4 months. Don't get started on that evil stuff unless you plan to stay on it for life. It's by far the worst withdrawl ever. Beware, you have been warned. Take Suboxone or subutex instead. I can't stress this enough. I wouldn't wish methodone withdrawl on my worst enemy. I went to treatment for one month to kick it. I was twice as sick after my 30 days were up. I had to go ...

Make sure you start a timeline and document it with as much info as you can remember, dates, times, names and what was said/what happened. You need to find which agency your clinic is accredited t...

methadone shows up in urine test
15 Replies RSS
what else would cause methadone toshow up in a urine test ## The only thing that would show up as Methadone is Methadone if they are testing for the specific drugs. Most standard urine tests do not, they just test for drug classes and concentrations, such as opiates, Benzodiazepines and Amphetamines. Are you currently taking some sort of opiate? There have been many posts recently about false positives on urine tests, so it makes me wonder if there is possibly a bad batch out there. ## they have to be testing for methadone specifically....otherwise it doesnt show up!! Only clinics and doctors with reasons test for methadone...probation or work drug tests will NOT test for is a synthetic narcotic ## So if I seen pain Dr and am prescribed Norco 10 Mg but took a methadone and...

find a doctor that prescribes methadone minnesota
4 Replies RSS
Hi, I have been on 90mg of methadone for about 5 years for chronic and many pain issues, my dr has retired and my current dr does not want to keep me on my meds. Does anyone know a Dr in Minnesota who will help? ## Hello, Sheila! How are you? Most doctors are going to be reluctant to prescribe Methadone, since it is so highly addictive. Additionally, due to the new regulations that were put in place by the DEA last year, a general practice physician can't prescribe it, you'll need to see a pain management specialist. The FDA lists this as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Can anyone recommend a good doctor in that area? Is there a chance your PCP might b...

Methadone Withdrawals
3 Replies RSS
Methadone is the worst drug. There are alternative ways to detox from opiates. I experienced cold turkey withdrawals after being on methadone for 12 years (90 mg. daily). Living hell. Severe withdrawals lasted two weeks, but less severe withdrawals lasted two months. Further withdrawals lasted for months. I couldn't think, walk, write... I was so miserable. If you are on Vicodin, Norco, etc., don't switch to Methadone. You have no idea what you're playing with. Trust someone who's been there (clean date: 2/1/2005) ## Hello, Caowens! How are you? I'm very sorry about what you've been through, but also congratulate you on sticking it out and becoming clean. Your post is very much appreciated, because many people do seem to see Methadone as a miracle drug, but they ...

how long does methodone stay in your urine for a drug test
2 Replies RSS
I took about 150 mg of methodone, I need to know how long it will show in your urine. I took a drug test after 18 days and am waiting the results. Also it was liquid methodone. does this make a difference on how fast it will metabolize out of your urine? ## Methadone would go out of the system in less than 5 days so I imagine after 18 days you should have no problem show a negative result and I don't think it matters in what form you take it. ## No, I've been taking methadone since 99, and it's all good you're clean. 3 days on a sensitive lab test I take.

Switching from methadone to suboxone
1 Reply RSS
In 21 days i went down from 165 to 30mg a day. This past Wednesday i took my last 30mg. I'm waiting for insurance approval to pay for my suboxone. It's been 5 days and I feel like hell. Can i take a little methadone (10mg)? I will get my suboxone tomorrow. I haven't slept 4 hours in the last 3 days. I'm feeling really bad. Any advice please? ## Hello, Rob! How are you? No, you must be in full withdrawal, before you take Suboxone, or it can throw you into dangerous precipitated withdrawals. The FDA classifies this medication as an opiate that is most commonly used to treat drug addiction, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with?

Has anyone using methadone for pain control found Roxa brand less efective than mallinckro for controlling there pain. Since taking the Roxa brand my pain has come back, I did talk with the pharmacy about this and she said most likley a major flare up. Does anyone know anything about this? It just seem wired to me because my pain started 3 days after the switch. Thanks ## Yes it is possible that your body can react differently to the same medication from different manufacturers. Are you able to obtain the Mallinckrodt version from anywhere else? ## Thanks for the responce Roy. I did get back on the Mallinckro methadone and it has made a difference. Has anyone had backorders in their part of the country? I live in WA state and its been hard to get my RX filled for methadone? Does anyone ...

detoxing off methadone and the withdrawl

I am trying to do a rapid detox but I am decreasing 5mg every 3 days, I am at 20mg now, I was at 40, when I started 8 years ago I was at 180mg! I am starting to really feel the effects and I wanted to know if anyone had any advice on anything that could help me get through this because this is my second attempt, I failed the first time, I never got past 25mg, well I hit 20mg for 1 day. PLEASE let me know of anything that may help....thank you very much.... ## Hello, Margie! How are you doing? Methadone is high addictive and very, very hard to detox from. A rapid detox is likely a bad idea and most likely why it didn't work the first time. Most people never get off of Methadone and require a maintenance dose for life, the few that are successful do so only with medical help and a ver...

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 ...

white vallium type tablet
Post a Reply
A friend gave me 4 small white tablets about the same dimensions as a 10mg blue vallium maybe bit bigger he told me they were mogadon. So I took them stupidly without looking properly at them. I'm sure they had the line to snap them. I don't usually take vallium as don't like fuzzy head next day but I do take 1or2 once in six months to 2 years just for a wee glow and good sleep. And it will be about a hour before I go to sleep. So I took the 4 of them on Saturday night at 22:30 ish. And I don't have a clue what happened that night and when got up my bags were packed as I have given my wife also rbs of verbal abuse and couldn't stand. I moved in with a mate and don't remember much of Sunday either got back with wife on monday but when went to bed that night I was aga

Skipping a day of methadone
Post a Reply
Hello everyone! I'm on 30mg of methadone a day for pain. I recently became sick with a stomach flu. That day I threw up my pills. I waited until I felt better and took them again. The thing is my doctor sends out my urine to a lab to check my levels to make sure I'm taking the correct amount. I'm worried that perhaps some was absorbed the day I got sick. If I skip a day of taking my methadone will that balance out for the day I was sick and took the extras? Please help if anyone knows. I'm a model patient and don't want to get kicked off the meds. Any advice will help.

How Long Does Methadone Stay In Your System For A Urine Test
72 Replies RSS
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...

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. 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? I usually get the 54/ 142 and pay about $22 for 150 I had to go to a different pharmacy this month and they gave me the ascertain 116 ones and charged me $90 for the same 150!! I mean I don't have insurance but this seems outrageous. Could it maybe just have been the pharmacy I went to? Also, I want to make sure there wont be a difference in my pain management on these pills. Thanks ## hey these are made by ascend lab...

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...
