148 Replies RSS
I would like to fill my methadone prescription from home. ## Methadone is a narcotic, a controlled substance, so it is ONLY obtainable, legally in the US by prescription and in this case, even with a prescription, many online pharmacies aren't going to carry it or ship it. Methadone is used to treat severe pain and drug addiction. Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Did you have any other questions? ## I need methadone ship to canada.I am hooked to pain killers and need meathadone to get rid of it please advice ## I take 10mgs of methadone 350 a month I heard you can get consults with drs on line if so how because I can not get out and around withou it I have cronic sever pain in my body I was on oxycotb 80h then p could not afford it any...

I was recently excused from my dr cause my urine showed that I had xanax in high doses - but I don't take these
2 Replies RSS
I was recently released from my Dr. I had a urine test on Dec. 17th and apparently they said I failed for xanax I don't take xanax. I am on methadone, percocet, valiums, neurontin, exium, premarin, combivent respimat, advair, oxygen 24-7 and sometimes I take extra strength acetaminophen. They claimed they sent it off to a lab and that came back positive but not till January 6th. Isn't the urine supposed to be tested within 24 hours of me giving it to them. I am 51 years old and have no reason for this to be happening. ## Xanax is a benzo and you are on Valium which is a benzo. He can't tell if it is xanax or valium....only a benzo. It doesn't test for the "brand." If you have a script for valium then you need to be talking to that doctor. Something very wrong wit...

Doctors Who Prescribe Methadone
360 Replies RSS
I am addicted to strong pain meds and I am tired of having to come off of them, the withdrawal is awful. I went to a urgent care doc and was prescribed suboxone. I take anxiety meds too but he wants me to stop. I really need the anxiety meds but he wants me off them. How do I get him to change it from suboxone to methadone so I can take my anxiety meds? ## Legally, he can't. To get Methadone for addiction treatment in the U.S. requires that you go to an actual Methadone treating clinic, private doctors aren't allowed to prescribe it for addiction treatment. What anxiety medication do you take? Did he say why he wants you to stop taking it? ## Valium and in sc he is licensed to prescribe and treat me sumboxone is like methadone it us prescribed the same as methadone ## how about ...

17 Replies RSS
I have been taking 80 mg of methadone for the past 6 months. I had 3 dirty ua's and they decided to kick me out of the program. When I asked them if they were going to medically detox me, they refused to do so. I know that this is illegal. Who can I contact to take legal action if I don't have the funds to so myself? ## Thats crazy to me.. at my clinic, dirty UAs only got you no take homes.. they didnt even lower your dose.. and the times they would start detox was only if you missed a day,and then they bring you back up.. or if they didnt get their money... then they just detox you down... i have NEVER heard of someone being kicked off for dirty tests,and especially without detoxing them first... i have heard of no detox and being kicked out if you break any serious rules.. sel...

Administrative discharge detox
Post a Reply
I'm in a program in Albany that wants me to drop out of school to go inpatient. The director assistant director and clinical supervisor if staff have continuously ignored my complaints about my counselor and for months ignored my cries for continued mental health services. They even forced me to discontinue mental health and medical medication that I'd been on for years without looking into my history and making the appropriate referaks. Now they have fabricated a bunch of lies in an attempt to justify their inadequate services and protect this counselor. Many Federal Regulation violations have accused and I'm being detoxed at ten milligrams a week after having been on 175 foalmost two years. I'm liviv and scared ...what do I do?

Targinact and Methadone
1 Reply RSS
Can I use targinact while on methadone? Will it throw me into withdrawal? I usually take oxycodone for spinal pain (cancer), but targinact has naloxone in it and oxycodone, so can I use targinact? ## Yes, if you are not in full withdrawal when you take it, it may throw you into dangerous precipitated withdrawals, according to NIH reports, which may include life threatening seizures. It would be best to wait until you are in full withdrawal, before making the switch. Are you on any other medications?

Doctors Who Will Prescribe Pain Medication Portland Oregon
181 Replies RSS
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.

Will urine test be ok if I'm prescribed methadone and take nothing else?
6 Replies RSS
I take methadone prescribed by my doctor for pain and nerve damage after breaking my neck and being temporarily paralyzed ...I have to take a urine test for a new job.. Will it be a problem if I'm given it by my pain doctor?? When I take the test I will tell them I take it. Any feedback will help.. ## Except for certain jobs where someone's being under the influence of narcotics could put the lives of others in danger, such as an airline pilot, they cannot deny you the use of legally prescribed medications. Thus, you just need to inform them that you are taking it, when you go in for the test, though they do have the right to verify it, with your doctor, if they so choose. Are there any other questions or comments? ## i need answers to my question ## As long as you are prescribe...

I'm having surgery for knee replacement and this is the first time I've had surgery and general anaesthetic while on methadone. Can anyone advise me about the safety of this and how they will treat post-operative pain? ## I have had two surgerys while on methadone, you will be fine they gave me percocet for pain and it took the edge off which is what it should do, alot of people think they should be pain free after a surgrey while taking pain pills but that is not the case hope all goes well ## Hello. If you are on methadone maintenance for opiate addiction, you will need to tell the surgon so he/she knows how to treat your pain and your general sedation. Methadone won't help your post op pain, so he/she will have to prescribe another type of painkiller. One of the reasons i...

Methadone: Belbucca for withdrawals?
1 Reply RSS
So I've been taking methadone for 8 months now. My peak dose was 70mg, but I've been weaning off of it for several weeks with the goal of getting off of it entirely. This past week, I dropped down to 5mg and my body went into full withdrawal. I honestly think that the dose is so low that it's pretty much just waste that my body doesn't absorb. I called my clinic and asked if I could come in and switch to subutex. They told me that even though I'm only on 5mg, they won't take the risk of putting me on it until I've stopped taking it for three days even though I'm only on 5mg. The withdrawals are terrible and it's like I'm not even taking anything. I thought that if you're in full withdrawal then it is safe to switch to subutex. Anyway, when my ...

Methadone , Suboxone , Addiction .
1 Reply RSS
I have been taking Methadone for Pain & addiction for years . I have cut my dosage down from 80 Mg a day to 25 Mg a day & feel much better . My ? is it a must to wait 48 to 72 hours before Switching to Suboxone . This is what iv,e always been told . ## Yes, you must be in full withdrawal, before taking Suboxone, otherwise it could cause you to experience dangerous precipitated withdrawals, according to FDA warnings. It also carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation, and dry mouth. The exact time frame can vary from person to person, but you must be in full withdrawal. Is there anything else I can help with?

How Long Do Opiates Stay In Your System while on methadone?
18 Replies RSS
I am on 70mg of methadone daily. Before I was on methadone heroin would only last in my system 2 days, 3 days at the most and that's only if I barely drank water and spent those days in bed. Now that I'm on methadone it's not that easy. Unfortunately, I have used heroin again and am due for a urine screen soon. I just need to know if I need to hold off the UA for one more day or a whole week. The last time this happened I had 4 days clean before the UA with lots of water and exercise in between and it still came up hot. Is there any reason why my body doesn't metabolize opiates as quickly anymore? Please, if anybody has any answers, I'd be grateful. ## The combination of Methadone + Heroin is like a double dose of opiates. This may be why your body struggles to rid i...
