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

Methadone urine test/Can I Pass A Urine Test For 5mg Of Methadone In 96hrs
I have bn taking 10mg of methadone daily for a year and recently cut down to 5mg i have bn taking 5mg for 3days as of today. I have to take a urine drug screen on Monday and today is thursday that will give approximately a little over 96 hrs to get my urine clean of the 5mg. Is it possible can I pass the urine test in 96hrs PLEASE HELP!! ## Methadone can stay in your system for a urine test for as long as 6 to 12 days after your last dose. Given the length of time you've been taking Methadone, I have my doubts that your urine will be clean in 4 days (96 hours). I wouldn't get your hopes up on doing so, but based on those numbers, passing a urine test may be a slim possibility. Everyone is different and metabolizes these drugs differently, but if I were to suggest anything that m...

Doctors Who Will Prescribe Pain Medication Portland Oregon
suffering from cronic headaches and neck pain due to a variety of events ## looking for a new dr. who will be willing to give me the same meds as I was taking before I moved here, they are narcotics that I take on a regualar basis for headaches and neck pain, hydro codone 10 to be exact, where I came from it is tough to find a dr. who will help you, how will I start over in Portland to find a helpful Dr.? ## I'd suggest looking for someone that specializes in pain management and making sure that they get a full copy of your medical records from your prior doctor. In many cases, if you go in asking for a specific medication they will see it as drug seeking behavior, but they can see what works for you as documented by other physicians, they are more likely to prescribe accordingly.

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 ...

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 ...

methadone dr
i'm looking 4 a dr who can & will prescribe methadone i've been on 9yrs for chronic pain but cannot find new dr. is buying on the internet from out of country all i can do? i live in greenwood in ## Hello, Julie! How are you? There are 2 reasons you may be having a problem finding a new doctor. The first is if you're calling new doctors and asking them if they'll prescribe it, they will view that as drug seeking behavior and, in most cases, they won't even let you get in the door. And the next also has to do with asking them about, if they possibly think it's for addiction treatment, they have to say no, since private doctors aren't allowed to prescribe it for that. In other worse, regardless of which one is applicable, you need to just set up an appointm...

Shortage In Florida
March 3 2013 I can't find Methadone anywhere in Jacksonville FL. I've searched for five days and have called dozens of pharmacies and visited several that would not tell me over phone ## Unfortunately, the ones that did tell you over the phone likely weren't being honest, anyway. It is far too dangerous to tell anyone if they do have it in stock, due to the high risk of theft of narcotics, so they will usually just tell you that they don't have it, or don't carry it. They have no way of knowing if the person on the phone is a legitimate customer with a prescription or not, so they only way to get an actual correct answer is by visiting the pharmacies in person, with the prescription in hand. And there are some crazy problems going on all over the east coast right now...

side effects of a 10mg methadone
Copper deficiency is causing aneurysms, herniated discs, hemorrhoids, high cholesterol, and emphysema, and these diseases are among the most destructive, painful, and numerous diseases in our society. Slipped or herniated discs are estimated to cost 200 billion dollars directly and indirectly each year in the USA alone []. Four to six of 100 Americans autopsied died of a ruptured aneurysm. 3.6 to 6 percent of those examined had non ruptured brain aneurysms [Renkel]. Each year, 16,000 Americans die due to a ruptured aortic aneurysm. Of the 200,000 strokes that occur each year in the USA, 20% are aneurysms in the brain. I suspect that copper deficiency status is the most important parameter affecting them. For instance, aneurysms are produ...

And does suboxone help with pain relief at all? ## I'm not sure why they told you to go from 60mgs Meth to nothing. And just ride it out for a full month before starting suboxone. Whoever was giving you this treatment seems as if they do not know what they are doing. The truth is you are to wean down to 20 mg meth for three days in a row then start suboxone on the fourth day. I still felt really bad when i did this and have use...
