a random drug test yielded a positive test for methadone. If you are not taking methadone, how could that be? ## I am not taking methadone however a drug test for a job today showed positive. I do take several medications and take stuff (legal) like nyquil etc all the time what could have made me test positive ?? ## Methadone is a synthetic opiate and it is possible that on a test that isn't done by a certified lab, other substances could cause you to show a false positive for it, including other synthetic or semi-synthetic opiates. Few employers are required to use a certified lab and most of the regular, inexpensive labs do have an error rate that ranges fro 4 to 50%.

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...

Private Methadone Doctors
27 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 ...

find a doctor that prescribes methadone in nc

Looking for a doctor who will prescribe methadone in the Charlotte, nc area. I have real pain due to a car accident back in 2000 when I broke my pelvis. I moved from Jersey to Nc and got the pain meds off of someone else and when I became pregnant I was told to go to a methadone clinic. I had no idea what I was doing or that I could easily have gone to pain management. I'm willing to drive almost anywhere within reason for a doctor who can give me methadone. I've tried subutex and suboxone but neither work. Please help ## Unfortunately, if you have gone to a Methadone clinic in the past, then that is in your medical records and a regular doctor will not be able to prescribe it for you. Whether you need it for pain or not, your prior addiction treatment is what will restrict them...

Doctors in Louisiana that prescribe methadone for chronic pain
257 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...

Is 100 mg of methadone 6 times a day safe,I couldn't believe my sister is on this much ## Hello, Debbie! How is your sister doing? That is a very high dosage and quite unusual. The FDA classifies this medication 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. What is she taking it to treat?
