Methadone an klonopin while being pregnant
1 Reply RSS
I have been on methadone for seven years. Thru a clinic. I also am prescribed many anti depressants as well as 2 mg klonopin. I just found out iam 10 weeks pregnant. What should i do? Does me taking both these medications affect my baby? Where di i go to research this. I do not eant to hurt my baby at all. Any advice? ## Methadone is usually not stopped during pregnancy, if the mother has been on it for a long time, though the baby may experience some side effects, when it is born and could also suffer some minor withdrawals. However, suddenly stopping it can be far more dangerous, because if you go into severe withdrawals it could result in miscarriage, according to the NIH. Benzodiazepines, such as Klonopin, should usually not be taken during the first trimester, however, abruptly sto...

My daughter has been on Methadone for almost 3 years they told her that she would only have to be on it a month to six weeks and they would bring her back down off of it detox her and they didn't so she tried to take herself off the methadone and was taking Adderall and drinking Red Bull everyday she wound up in a mental ward talking crazy delusional will my daughter come back to reality ## Hello, Theresa! How is your daughter doing? Has there been any change? Only the doctors are going to be able to let you know if there's an possibility of that. It will really depend on whether or not she's suffered permanent mental damage, or not, according to the NIH. As reported by the FDA, the Adderall carries as much of a risk of being habit forming as Methadone, plus since it is a st...

My husband is taking liquid methadone has been for about four years and this morning he noticed his medicine was cloudy and then he took his other doses out and found several others of his doses were too. They were filled at the same time. Is this supposed to happen? And is it common? He said he hasn't bee feeling right for the last couple of days. I am worried, has anyone have this happen to thiers? And what could cause it? ## I'm not sure, but it makes me wonder if perhaps they didn't mix it properly. Has he tried calling the clinic or doctor that he receives it from to ask them? What are the symptoms he's experiencing when he says he isn't feeling right? ## never heard of cloudy methadone unless juice is added.even then its not cloudy. Is this is the clear or red ...

I am addicted to strong pain meds and I am tired of having to come of of them the withdrawal is awful I went to a urgent care doc and was prescribed simboxon I take anxiety meds to 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 simboxon to methadone so I can take my anxietymeds ## 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 for neuro...

v.a. taking everyone down from methadone to equal 100 mg morphine
1 Reply RSS
I've been on methadone for 15 years for severe pain (after 25 years in recovery, and fighting with v.a. for 3 + years not to take pain meds). The head of the local v.a. treatment program recommended it to me; The only way I would take it was if I was guaranteed for life. A recent v.a. dr. took me from 120 mg to 90, last year (with no notice) then this year to 60, with no notice "again". Now he says the max they can write is equivalent to 100mg morphine. (Anyone know what that is?) Asked last year to try and come off slowly and see how I can tolerate (I was suicidal 15 years ago when I finally went to them.) He says there's only one dr. in the v.a. system in our state; He's a long way away and already had 100 patients (the amount my dr. says is max.) I realize, by my ...

Are Doctors beginning to NOT prescribe methadone anymore for chronic pain?
40 Replies RSS
I am 56 years old and am disabled due to a work-related injury therefore I am rich by no means! I have heard that they are considering taking methadone off the market due to too many overdose issues, plus people on it, get a prescription filled and sell it for profit making it even harder for folks like me who take my meds honestly as prescribed. If Methadone is removed from the market, what am I supposed to do? I already know I can not go off this stuff cold turkey and am scared. Does anyone know any doctors in the Warner Robins-Macon, GA area that prescribe Methadone ILLEGITIMATELY? I am not looking to sell meds, I just want to be sure I will not be in pain. I've been on Methadone since November 2008 and so far it works fine for me. I just neeed a backup plan just in case that doe...

methadone and surgery
57 Replies RSS
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...

any heard of methadone clinics watering down metodose?
41 Replies RSS
Anyone heard of methadone clinics "watering down" the methodose. There have been people at my clinic complaining of getting sick in the evening all of a sudden. ## It is more likely that they've gotten tolerant to whatever dose they are currently taking. That can happen with any medication, when you are taking it for awhile at the same dosage. There is no precise time frame, it can take years for some people and just a few months for others, it depends on their bodies. Learn more Methadone details here. Has anyone discussed it with those in charge? ## You said people complaining all of a sudden. I would have to ask approximately how many, how long have they been on their dose, and what if any other issues they might have in common. Such as alcohol, benzos, and any illicit dr...

Thanks for your time!! ## You'll most likely need to see a pain management specialist, due to the new regulations that were put in place at the beginning of the year. Due to the increased rates of over prescribing and improper prescribing, the DEA and FDA are making it harder for general practitioners and surgeons to prescribe such medications for long-term use and most people that need them must be referred to pain management.

find a doctor that prescribes methadone in nc
9 Replies RSS
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...

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...

how long after taking methadone can i take a percocet

Is it normal for a doctor to switch me from oxy 10/325 to Methadone 20 GM's a day? I have severe back pain and the oxy wasn't working anymore after being in it for 6 years! ## Hello, Chrissy! How are you? Did you mean 20mgs of Methadone? It does not come in grams. There is no hard and fast rule for pain management, it is up to your doctor and what they think would work best for you. 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 constipation. If you're not happy about taking Methadone, then you are free to inform your doctor that you'd like to try something else. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I was strolling through and found this question.. sometimes ...

methadone 40 mg hot pink capsule with no imprint ## Without a specific imprint on the pill it will not be possible to tell what it is for sure. Do you know what country, web site, or store this was obtained from? Could be from outside the U.S., or over the counter, or even an illegal drug (hopefully not the last one!) Here is an image depicting various possible appearances of Methadone in the United States ... Do you have any other questions or information to add? Please post back if you do... ## No, NOT methadone! I'm not sure what it is, but it is definitely not methadone. I would never take anything that you aren't 100% sure of what it is.
