Doctors in Louisiana that prescribe methadone for chronic pain
241 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...

124 Replies RSS
methadone ## 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 anymore so the de out me on methadonr a lot cheaper...

103 Replies RSS
WHAT COMPANY MAKES THESE ASC 116 AND WHEN DID THEY COME OUT ON THE MARKET? ## January, 2012 ## That date is correct and the manufacturer is Ascend Laboratories, LLC. Are there any other questions or comments? ## Yeah, what is the difference between this pill and the 10mg methadone white round pill labled 54/142 and scored on the other side, is it just the manufacturer? I usually get the 54/ 142 and pay about $22 for 150 I had to go to a different pharmacy this month and they gave me the ascertain 116 ones and charged me $90 for the same 150!! I mean I don't have insurance but this seems outrageous. Could it maybe just have been the pharmacy I went to? Also, I want to make sure there wont be a difference in my pain management on these pills. Thanks ## hey these are made by ascend lab...

I Have Been Taking 30mg Of Methadone For 6 Weeks And Changed Script Now Take Percocet How Long Will It Me To Stop Having Withdrawls
16 Replies RSS
I have been taking 30mg a day of methadone for 6 weeks and wanted to switch to percocet and changed script now take 45mg of percocet a day. How long will it take for me to stop having withdrawls symptoms from methadone? I am feeling sick even while I am taking the percocet. Is it possible to still go through methadone withdrawls even while you are taking the percocet? ## You should not be switching from methadone to percocet which is very addictive also. If your Dr. can perscribe suboxen try that. It helps to take away the pain of opiate withdrawl. ## I forgot to mention Suboxen can also be addictive.. ## Methadone is well known to cause withdrawals, regardless of what it is replaced with. That is why many people end up on a lifetime maintenance dose of it, rather than ever being able t...

Methadone withdrawals have not started yet...
6 Replies RSS
I have been on Methadone for about 3 years for long term pain management and the stomach issues are awful. I went from 30 to 10 two years ago and have now been 3 days on 7.5 with no withdrawals yet. When will they start? I have clonidine and Ativan from the doctor to help, but I have a 3 day conference in July 7-9 and need to be pain free at 7.5 by then. Then I will take the last 2 weeks of summer to get to 5 mg. ## Hello, Lisa! How are you? I'm sorry, but there's no definitive time frame that I can give you in response. It can vary from person to person. Have you experienced any, yet? The FDA lists the typical withdrawal symptoms as possibly including nausea, diarrhea, fever, chills and rebound pain. Can anyone that's taken it give an approximate time frame that may help? #...

How Long Does Methadone Show Up In A Oral Swab Drug Test
28 Replies RSS
I will be going for a job interview at some point next week, more than likely it will be early in the week ( in about 3 days) today i took 4 10mg methadone pills. It will be a saliva test that i have to take, how long will the drug be detectable in a saliva test? ## Hi Serenity, Methadone can be detected in your saliva for up to 1-10 business days. Just joking about the 'business' days part. LOL! Although in 3 days time, it's still questionable as to whether or not the drug will be detected; but if you have a prescription for Methadone, then you should be fine just presenting the script to whom ever is testing your saliva, so you're not held accountable for a positive result. I hope this helps and wish you good luck on your test! ## No, no, no....methadone can not be det...

Need a Dr who will prescribe Methadone for chronic pain..haven't taken any in approx 2 severe depressed and back pain is relentless...I'm 61.. not in good health..really need help...Live in the state of Alabama... ## Hi, Patti! Sorry that you're so miserable. Is there a special reason that it has to be Methadone? There are many other treatments options available for pain that use much safer and more effective medications or therapies. Do you have a general practitioner that you're currently seeing? If so, they can most likely refer you to a pain specialist. Learn more Methadone details here. The big issue with Methadone is that due to its very high addiction rate, doctors are very reluctant to prescribe it for pain, except for in very severe cases. ## I do not u...

methadone clinic and drug testing
48 Replies RSS
I just started going to the methadone clinic about 4 weeks ago. I used to be a very heavy drug user, Heroin and pills were my life. When I took my initial drug test at the clinic I asked them if my weed levels were really high, and they told me they don't test for weed. I live in Texas. Does anyone know what kind of drug test they are using and exactly what they test for? I thought on all standard drug tests, they test for THC. Also I mistakenly took a 1mg football mistaking it for an aleve. In highschool i used to put them in aleve bottles. My mom just moved and the bottle was up in the medicine cabinet in the new house. OOPS. When I started feeling extremely relaxed, it clicked at what I had just ingested. This was 10 days ago today. The clinic tested me this morning. I'm not ...

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.

You may also have to ask if they ar...

I'm interested in finding a private doctor's office (not a clinic) that will prescribe methadone. I can't afford these clinics! Does anyone know of a doctor??? ## I am a full time student and a single mother, I need assistance in finding a doctor who prescribes methodone because with my schedule and trandportation I cannot go to the Methadone Clinic anymore. ## Katy did What do you take methadone for? If you take it for opiate addiction, you won';t be able to find a doctor to prescribe it for you because a doctor can only write it for chronic pain. As for money, by the time you pay to see a doctor (Pain managment is a specialty) it will cost you more than going to the clinic. Most pain managment doctors charge $100.00+ each month plus the medication, and another problem ...

Need advice on withdrawal
1 Reply RSS
I was on 45mg methadone and waited 72hrs after the last dose. Doctor started me on 4mgs of suboxone twice a day. Just took first dose in the AM. Sick as hell. Put me in withdrawal. Should I take the next dose?? ## Hello, Samson! How are you? If you weren't in full withdrawal, yet, then you shouldn't have taken the Suboxone. Taking it too soon can cause you to be thrown into precipitated withdrawals. Have you consulted your doctor? It would be best to do so, in order to be sure of what you should do next. The FDA classifies Suboxone as an opiate that is most commonly used to treat drug addiction. It carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and constipation. Has anyone else done this switch?

Does anyone know a Dr in Minnesota who will help? ## Hello, Sheila! How are you? Most doctors are going to be reluctant to prescribe Methadone, since it is so highly addictive. Additionally, due to the new regulations that were put in place by the DEA last year, a general practice physician can't prescribe it, you'll need to see a pain management specialist. The FDA lists this 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.

How are you? There isn't really anything over the counter that will help much.

The FDA classifies these medications as opiates that are most commonly us...
