how long does methadone show up in a blood test

I am scheduled for knee replacement surgery and I have preop blood work orders coming up soon. I have been taking Norcos for pain and ran out. Unfortunately, I started going through withdrawals. My daughter gave me a methodone pill to help. Now I am concerned it will show up on my blood test. I don't want to appear like I am an addict, I desperately need this surgery due to the pain it is causing me. I am 63 years old and I realize I made a serious mistake as I have been reading about methadone and it is a dangerous drug if not monitored by a physician. How long should I wait before my blood test?

It's not just methadone it's all narcotics. Florida won't fill any narcotic. Believe me we've tried. We next day air the script to our family in minneapolis, they go to our pharmacy for us, fill and ship back to us. It's a pain but it works. ## @Mpls, Wow, I think its pretty ridiculous what extent patients have to go through in order to be able to have their legal medication filled, as if it's some sort of secret substance that no one can speak of in the State of Florida. And even across the country in California, my dad was just telling me the other night how he had to drive to several different cities in Southern California (which is very spread out) just to get a weak 5/325mg Norco script filled, because everyone was "allegedly" out of stock. With the ...

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...

private methadone doctor in dallas county

I had a serious car accident a few years back. The hospital put me on methadone. I'm having to go to a clinic daily and most everyone there takes methadone for addiction issues. I really would live to see a private doctor that can help with my pain med and other physical issues due to the car accident I had in Houston. I'm back home in Dallas Tx. Please help if you have some info. Thanks! ## Hello, Robin! How are you? Unfortunately, with the clinic in your records, no regular doctor is going to be able to prescribe it for you. I know you weren't going for an addiction issue, but that's basically what it looks like and it's illegal for a regular doctor to treat for that. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effec...

Due to the new directives set forth by the DEA last year, most general practitioners will no longer prescribed controlled substances, except in certain very rare cases, ...

need a good dr in the medford grants pass oregon area. also looking for hydro or oxys to purchase ## Hi Gia, In regards to finding a pain doctor, I have listed below a couple websites specific to locating pain management doctors in a given area. All you have to do is input your city or zip code for narrowed results: {link removed because site no longer exists} You can give this other page a try too if you come up with different results for some reason or another: wellness.com/find/pain%20management%20specialist Many of the results you find (in one or both of the links above) also list a phone number for that specific doctor; I'd suggest calling up a number of them to see if they prescribe the type of medication you are seeking to manage your pain.

Massachusetts North Shore - Doctor that prescribes methadone for severe back pain withdrawals

I have been on hydrocodone 30mg for about 3 years and started small but is now up to 4 a day just to feel fine and it has got very expensive and cant afford to do them anymore and it cost me my job... i literally cant get out of bed the withdrawals are so bad the back pain and restless arms and legs are the worse.. I have tried to quit 3 or 4 times now, once i bought 10 suboxone off a buddy and tried and only made 4 days and i vomited almost every day because it taste so nasty... i got out of detox on 1/17/13 and tried staying off but only lasted 2 days until i couldnt do it anymore and the detox center gave me methadone and it really helped and i need to get back to work have tons of bills that havent been paid in a while....

i am a suboxone patient, took a drug test (probably the cheap dip stick kind) and it came back positive for methadone. I havent taken methadone for about 4 months and every drug test since then has been clean. the only things ive taken was benadryl and my subs. What can cause a false positive for methadone, and if so when they sent the remander of my urine to the lab, it should find that i havent taken any right? plz help ## It might have been caused by the Buprenorphine in the Suboxone itself. On the cheaper tests, most semi-synthetic and synthetic opiates have been known to cause false positives for others. The Benadryl shouldn't cause a false positive for opiates, though it can do so for other substances. As to it being sent to the lab, the results there will really depend on how...

If i take 130mg of methadone a day will a 60mg morphine sulfate help get me thru one day

I go to a methadone program and have for about 4 years .Ive recently had the flu which causedme to vomit up my methadone (I get 5 take home bottles a week) tried taking another bottle and threw up again im feeling sick from not taking it so I took a 60mg morphine sulfate pill,will this help at all? ## It may help stave off the worst of the withdrawals you could experience, since it is also a narcotic. However, before doing so in the future, you really should call the doctor or clinic you are working with and get their advice, first. Taking another narcotic may not be approved and might get you kicked out of the Methadone program. How are you feeling now? ## Because of a heart problem my wife was taken off 150 mg per day immediately and it was replaced by morphine. Dr. said 20 mg morphin...

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...

Hello. I am a 26 year old male who has been struggling with opiate addiction for about a decade. Recently I tried the suboxone program which helped to a degree, but meds were way to expensive as well as the Drs appointment. So I am looking for help with my disease and I would like to know if methadone is the right route for me to go. Thanks ## Methadone does help many people and it can be cheaper than Suboxone, however, you will more than likely still have to visit a doctor or clinic regularly. The main drawback to Methadone is that it can also be quite an addictive substance and people that is use it usually end up requiring a lifetime maintenance dose of it, while Suboxone can be slowly tapered and enable the person to eventually become completely drug free. Have you tried consulting ...

how long do you have to take methadone get withdrawal symptoms

So if you are in severe pain and in the middle of nowhere and the only thing anyone has is methadone if you only took it once till you could get back and get help would you go through withdrawals? ## Hello, Ricky! How are you? According to the FDA information on Methadone, it has happened to some people, but it is a very rare occurrence. One would usually have to take it for a longer period of time to experience withdrawals. With one dose, you'll usually just feel sick and fatigued, afterwards. 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. Is there anything else I can help with? ## DO NOT TAKE METHODONE IF YOU HAVE USED SUBOXONE IN THE LAST 3 DAYS. I promise you...
