Methadone withdrawal symptoms when switching from Methadone to Opana ER
18 Replies RSS
I am a 55 year old man, and I have been going to a Pain Management facility for lower back pain and now even chronic Osteoarthritic shoulder pain, and have been taking 60mg of Methadone every day (10mg tablets x 2 x 3 times a day -- morning, noon & night) for the past three years. Although I've been doing well on that regimen, perhaps out of more of a psychological concern over the known "qt" (heart) effects of the drug (rather than any "real" ones), I decided to ask my doctor if I could try Opana ER (20mg every 12 hours), which I had taken once before, for a short time, at another Pain Management facility, with great success. All I'm wondering are what the withdrawal effects might be (if any) of stopping the Methadone (60mg) on a Monday, and starting the Opa...

Today was my first day starting at the meth clinic in central east coast Fl. I was told to have $117.00 to start the meth and for the next 3 days and to my BIG surprise I only had to pay $6.00.

ordering prescriptions online

I was wondering if anyone here has ever order prescriptions online from a place called VectraMedical? If so, was it legit? Because my grandpa doesn't have insurance and is only trying to go to his doctors with his checkups, and not every month to get his scripts, such as methadone. So if it isn't a scam we were goin to order them online but we want to find out if anyone out there has order threw VectraMedical before. So if it is a scam, then what website can we go to to order medications for him that are a legit website? ## Hello, Redietoflip! How are you and your grandpa? If they don't require a prescription, they they are not legitimate. Law requires all such medications only be dispensed via a doctor's prescription and for controlled substances, such as Methadone, tha...

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?

2 Replies RSS
Had been in hospic for Aids. Doc thought I would die, but got better. Placed on 150 mg of methadone per day and 30 mg of morphine per hour (using 20 to 22 pills a day).

Went from 150 to 140 to 130 to 125 to present dosage of 100mg of morphine and same amount of morphine. I would like to know what symptoms and side effects will I experience from detoxing this quickly from the methadone. ## Hi Anna! The withdrawals r TERRIBLE!

Doctors in Louisiana that prescribe methadone for chronic pain
188 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...

Doctors in Michigan that prescribe methadone

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 ...

Dr. who prescribes methadone
2 Replies RSS
Hello been going to methadone clinic for about 10years going for pain although its a maitaince program lookin for a Dr BC it cost so much 2 go to clinic. On 120 MG's live in west Tennessee any suggestions ## Hello, Brandon! How are you? Unfortunately, you're not going to be able to switch. Due to the current laws, for addiction/maintenance, it can only be given in a clinical setting by those that have been specially trained in its use for such. Regular doctors can only prescribe it for pain and what you currently have in your records is the fact that you were going to a treatment clinic, so a regular doctor isn't going to be able to prescribe it for you. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hello Brandon, not sure if you have found a doctor yet to help you out on getti...

if I've been on 20mg of methadone for 3 days, will i get any withdrawls if i stop
5 Replies RSS
I was taking 10mg norco 6× a day for 7 years and wanted off so my sister talked me in to getting on methadone. I've gone for 3 days and been getting 20mg a day but I don't like how it makes me feel. I feel really high on it and feel like I'm gonna pass out. So I don't want to go any more my question is will I have withdrawal from that small amount that I've been on? I've recently been told methadone withdrawal is horrible. ## Hello, Cindy! How are you feeling? You might be better off asking them to lower the dosage, rather than stopping, because yes, you aren't out of the woods for withdrawals, yet. This is 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 co...

Methadone Clinic that accepts medicaid for payment

live in seminole county, Florida. I am on medicaid and want to know if there is a clinic or doctor that will accept medicaid for methadone maintenance. ## I really wish I could help, but I haven't been able to find any that are directly listed in that area, however, I will admit, I am not familiar with Florida, so there could be some places that I am missing. Have you tried asking your doctor or perhaps calling the Medicaid office to see if they have a place they can recommend? Another good place to ask would be your local hospitals, especially the social workers, they usually have listings of such places for those in need that may have trouble finding them. ## I live in Bradenton-Sarasota & I go to the PAR clinic in Bradenton. It's on US41 in a plaza where Livingston's ...

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.
