Methadone Maintainance & WEIGHT GAIN!!!HELP!!!
I AM A METHADONE MAINTAINANCE PATIENT, CLEAN FROM OXYCONTIN FOR THREE+ YEARS & I HAE PACKED ON 40 POUNDS! I AM RETAINING WATER & EXPERIENCE HORRIBLE CONSTIPATION...ANYONE WITH SIMILAR ISSUES OR TIPS TO HELP ME OR FIND THE CAUSE??? ## Kali, I've taken Methadone for years (chronic pain). It is a side effect of methadone on the constipation & retaining water (edema). Try taking a stool softener like colace two every night. If that don't help take a mild laxative also. On the retaining water you can take a water pill over the counter or ask your doc about taking a diuretic. Sorry I don't know about the weight gain. But, I've got you beat on the weight gain 55 POUNDS!!! Good Luck, Gina ## I have gained over 20 pounds, but I don't think that it is due to the Me...

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 ...

detox at home with methadone taper
I am currently addicted to hydromorphine an I do them IV. I been reading and searching a safe way at home to detox. I tried staying in a medical detox but failed a few times recently. I have purchased methadone pills on the street. Because I am sick and tired of always being sick, either looking for ways, and means to get my fix daily and I sat back and seriously decided enough was enough. The time an energy spent getting and doing them is ridiculous as anyone with this addiction knows. I am really just wondering if anyone personally knows how to effectively taper with the pills at home because I do not want to end up in a position where I am gonna be more sick at the end of the taper cause that will defeat my whole purpose of doing this. Any help or advice will be gladly accepted and t...

54 year old male with severe chronic pain desperately looking for someone who can help me with alleviating my chronic pain
I suffer from severe chronic pain with all verified documentation. I have been on a couple of pain clinics that treated my chronic pain with prescribed methadone and oxycodone for breakthrough pain and had great success. then after being on these pain clinics for a lengthy period of time with ni incidents. I was told that they cannot continue prescribing me my necessary medications and i have to find another pain clinic or a new doctor i need very serious help ## Hello, Tony! How are you feeling? I'm very sorry about the problem you're having. Do you currently have a PCP that might be able to refer you to someone?

methadone and garcinia cambogia
I have been on methadone for 10 years for fibro. I take 60-100 mgs a day. I have recently begun taking garcinia cambogia, green coffee bean and raspberry ketones for weight loss. Though they have been working, (I've lost 20 lbs) I've noticed about 1-2 hrs after taking them I start to withdraw. It doesn't matter if it's been 2 hrs or 10 hrs since my last methadone dose, my body acts like it's been 14+hrs as the anxiety clamps on like a vice and the nose turns into a faucet. Does anyone know if there is a withdrawal interaction or if this is just coincidence and I got a bad batch of methadone? ## I have noticed the same thing. Two times now, after taking this supplement for 4-7 days, I have come into a debilitating withdrawal. I was searching online to see if others ha...

How Long Do Methadone Stay In Your System
I took one 10mg methadone today and one tomorrow wilk it still be in my urine on tge 11th ## Methadone is usually detectable in a standard urine test for approximately 5 days, after last dosing. There is no way, however, to give a precise time frame, because it will always vary from person to person, depending on your overall health, activity levels, fluid intake and etc. Learn more Methadone details here. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Will methadone show up as an opioid , or straight up methadone? ## How many methadone pills , 10 mg tablets, before withdraw occurs after stopping the meds? Only 60 MG were consumed in 2 1/2 days time frame. Thanks! ## It will not show up as an opioid because it is not an opioid it just acts like an opioid to your brain… That is why you...

where can you buy methadone10mg?
i am in severe pain and have been given methadone10mg from my pain dr. in i live in tn.and i cant get a dr. because i dont have ins.i have to travel back to mi. to get it!how else can i get it? ## They have clinics that you can go to but the downfall is you go everyday for so many months and then you build up to a week at a time. My husband goes and gets 6 bottles of 80mil liquid in Huntsville. Al. You have to have a clean urine test that only shows the methadone. If you've taken anything over the counter tell them. He used to drive about 100 miles round trip. It was pain management and also to get off of other meds that he was addicted to. It is 12 dollars a day not counting gas and food if he doesn't eat before he leaves. They are only open from 5to11a.m. on certain day...

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...

Why Drs like to Rx Methadone.
Thorough education by my Pain Management Board Certified Doctor, and his Physician Assistant. The reason Doctor's like Methadone, is it reacts dually as both a traditional narcotic pain reducer, as well as working on NERVE pain. Very few narcotics work on Nerve pain. Usually you have to add Lyrica, or a step therapy drug such as gabapentin or Topamax. So its two birds with one stone. Also, methadone, at therapeutic doses, is lower in amount necessary to work, hence less side effects, including brain fog, dopy, or constipation.This is the same reason Pain Specialists prescribe (or did) Oxycodone. It did not work on nerve pain, only like a traditional strong narcotic, however was much less sedating. And all our goals are to be more active and live our lives with friends and family. An...

Could use help finding a doctor that prescribes methadone
Hello, I have raced horses my whole life and been in multiple accidents over the years and now have arthritis in my neck, back and shoulder. I was put on oxycodone for about 2 years but afraid I was getting addicted so I quit taking it and my dr has since retired. My pain is getting worse and worse and I've had a few people tell me that methadone would work good and I wouldn't crave it like the oxycodone. I don't have insurance so I'd be self pay, but I would really like to find a dr in the Lebanon, OH area that could hopefully prescribe this for me. Thank you very much ## That's not necessarily true, Methadone is actually well known for causing cravings, as well as severe withdrawals. That's why most people that are treated with it for addiction end up on a life...

I Need To Find A Doctor Indianapolis IN that Will prescribe Methadone For Chronc Pain
I AM TRYING TO FIND A DOCTOR THAT WILL PRESCRIBE METHADONE FOR CHRONIC PAIN. ITS COMMONLY KNOWN AS DOLOPHINE AND COMES IN 10MG TABLETS. I USUALLY TAKE 40MG PER DAY. IT IS SO MUCH CHEAPER AND MORE CONVENIENT THAN CLINICS. I AM TOO FAR AWAY FROM CLINIC ANYWAY. THANK YOU ## I'm sorry, but there's no central listing of doctors that will prescribe any particular medication and there's never a guarantee when seeing one that they will prescribe anything. The main problem with Methadone is that is so highly habit forming and addictive. This makes most doctors very reluctant to prescribe it for pain, unless everything else has completely failed to work and all other options have been exhausted. Learn more Methadone details here. What else have you tried to treat your pain? There are ...

Please help me find a doctor in RI that prescribes methadone
I have had 5 back operations and none of them worked, I am in costant pain 24/7 and have no life. I don't want to take opiates because as we all know you can only take them for a small period of time. I am looking for a Doctor in Rhode Island that prescribes methadone for pain ## Hello, Kruzz321! How are you? Many people take opiates successfully for long periods of time to treat chronic pain, or if they have intractable pain due to possibly terminal illnesses, such as stage 4 cancer. There is no hard and fast rule that someone can only take them for short periods of time. Additionally, Methadone is an opiate narcotic, just like Oxycodone, Suboxone, Opana, Morphine and etc. It's actually known to be highly addictive and to cause very bad withdrawals and cravings, when someone ha...

Methadone in Mexico-Legal there?
Please help!!!Can I get methadone in Mexico with a canadian script? Anyone know? ## From my research, it appears that Methadone is illegal in Mexico. They only allow it to be used in certain extreme cases, where no other pain relief works, for AIDs patients. If you are going, you may be better served, if you are on it, to take enough of a supply with you to last for the duration of your trip. ## I'm not sure if was ILLEGAL.. but now it isn't and there are even methadone clinics in mexico... you just need a doctors letter... and don't have anything on it about drug addiction or anything about being an 'addict' past present of future... just keep it about pain managment and that if you don't take it you will get dealthy sick... so you MUST have it for daily you. yo...

doctors that can and will refill methadone tablets
i moved to bristol,va and cant find anbody that will refill my meds ## Hello, Bob! How are you? If you are taking it for pain, then you'll need to see a pain management specialist. A general practice physician won't be able to prescribe it for you and to find a new doctor, you won't be able to ask them up front if they'll prescribe Methadone, because doctors are taught to view that as being drug seeking behavior. You'll need to set up an appointment with a doctor, make sure they get a full copy of your medical records and then discuss your treatment options, while at your appointment. 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 are takin...
