Methadone to ms continue conversion
Post a Reply
I worked with hospice for many years . If we changed pt from methadone to ms it was calculated at a 10/1 ratio. I was on 30 mg of methadone but due to prolong q wave cardiologist felt med needed changed. I was put on Ms and med tech argued that is a one to one conversion so my dose went up. When did conversion change and why am I in such withdraw and severe pain.

Replacement For Methadone
7 Replies RSS
I am currently on 10 mg of methadone 16 times a day. I have to have something for my backpain but cannot deal with the side effects of methadone anymore. What would be a replacement drug that would be as effective? ## Hi Sara, Sorry to hear that your pain medication isn't working as well as you'd like it to. Some of these side effects can be pretty horrible, so I don't blame anyone for trying to find an alternative. A few suggestions I can give you for other prescription pain medications include: Demerol, Morphine, Vicodin (extended release), Percocet, Dilaudid, Opana, Oxycodone, and Fentanyl. Your doctor would have a better clue as to which one of these would best replace the drug you're currently on, but honestly, there's no way of telling ahead of time how you...

How Long Do Opiates Stay In Your System while on methadone?
20 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...

methadone and garcinia cambogia
97 Replies RSS
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...

Please! Not a med seeker. I just need to manage my pain with strong pain killers and need to get something for energy as I have severe depression and chronic pain. Going to all these referral places is a waste of time and energy and costly as well. ## Anyone in Ventura county that can give me an idea on where to go? I was dumb and started self-medicating.

MY HUSBAND HAS BLADDER CANCER AND WAS PRESCRIBED 20 MG OF METHADONE EVERY MORNING. HE WAS ALSO GIVEN MORPHIN SULFATE 60 MGS TWICE A DAY. HOW SHOULD THESE MEDICINES BE TAKEN. ## Debra, i dont know why his dr. prescribed both Methadone and Morphine. The Methadone is known to block or cancel out the effects of the Morphine. ## i take 30mg 6 times aday plus 135mg of methadone a day for stomach cancer pain is it safe what are the dangers ## First of all methadone is not a blocker. People mistake it for suboxone because they are both used in opiate withdraw treatment. They first made methadone in world war II...when China cut Germany off from poppy trade. Hitler had his science goons make somthing to substitute opiate pain killers and Bam methadone is born. First used as a pain killer for man...

how long does withdrawal from 30 mg of methadone a day last?
2 Replies RSS
I've been on various pain meds since I was 21 due to a VERY serious car accident where I broke my back and did a lot of other damage to my body. I've moved up through SEVERAL meds over the years, and have NEVER been fully pain free, but at times able to live life fairly normally, others not so much! I've been on methadone for a few years now and was actually doing pretty great! Didn't completely take away my pain, but made life liveable and side effects were something I could handle. But due to issues it was causing with my heart my pain doc just switched me from 10 mg 3x day to 30 mg of morphene er 3 times day. It's only been a week, but I'm MISERABLE! In a GREAT deal of pain, haven't slept in days, not only from being uncomfortable, but from withdrawal (I d...

Will methadone show up a drug screen urinalysis if I take morphine
1 Reply RSS
I take 15mg Morphine daily. If I take a 20mg Methadone, will it show up on my urinalysis at my pain doctors office? Only one dose is necessary right now. ## Lukky, if they do a full drug urine screen, be sure that methadone will show up...they test for it's beastly metabolite EDDP 2 - ethylidene - 1, 5 - dimethyl - 3, 3 - diphenylpyrrolidine (EDDP) . Just be honest with your doc. The thing that pisses them off [no pun intended] is when we lie. Good luck.

will methadone show up on a drug test as morphine for pain clinic testing
6 Replies RSS
I am going to a pain clinic in 16 days and want to know if I take about 70 mg of liquid methadone will it show up different than Percocets and morphine? I take 2 30 mg morphine and 3 7.5/325 Percocets for breakthrough pain. can I get help please. ## I know the answer to this one! Ive been on methadone for 8 years. Methadone requires a separate test/panel from other opiates to find it in urine. 10-15 years ago, i remember people getting drug tested for probation would scout out methadone bc of this fact. Nowadays many tests include a panel that tests for methadone (generally any test that has more than 8 panels). These days that includes a probation drug test and the ones at methadone clinics. The clinics like to make sure youre on something other than methadone before they start giving ...

I have a severe allergy that I have had for a year and a half now. I break out all over in the itchiest pimple like sores. They either have no liquid in them or sometimes a small amount of clear fluid. No puss. It has gotten worse over the past year and a half to where I now get huge hives and random swelling that is very painful. sometimes a foot or a hand but it's not like normal edema swelling, this is painful and a tighter swelling, definitely part of the reaction. I have no health insurance so after looking everywhere possible i cannot find anywhere to get the extremely expensive tests I would need to pin point the cause of this. my hands will get hot and then itch like crazy, my extremely thick hair has thinned to the point in the front where If something doesn't happen so...

Both my husband and I have been on methadone for pain mgmt for over 5 yrs. We moved to Marysville, Ca and can't find a doctor that prescribes methadone so we are extending our search area to include Sacramento area doctors. We are both ill from withdraw and after a very tearful conclusion that we had no options but to enroll at the local methadone clinic. we are back home worse than ever as they won't take us because we take it for pain. Of course by now we are completely addicted but because we weren't on it exclusively for addiction they just said good luck and there's the door. PLEASE help. We are self employed and money is not an issue even if we have to pay to see a doctor. ## There is no such thing as a Methadone doctor, that might be what's complicating things...

Doctors Who Prescribe Methadone
377 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 ...

Variances in the composition of Methadone may be affecting drug tests
8 Replies RSS
I had been on 130 mg of methadone and nothing else for several yrs for neuropathic pain, and it helped so much! Anyway one month I picked up my refill... I started not sleeping and dropping weight like crazy. My heart was skipping and jumping off and on all day. Also my kidneys started aching. But it wasn't everyday. I did go see my reg. family dr and told him. They ran blood tests. Nothing. That dr insisted it was my back. Whatever. I knew it wasn't. I went in for my monthly refill again, I still hasn't realized it was my last refill of methadone that was affecting me. When my dr got the UA back, it tested positive for EVERYTHING! Methamphetamine, amphetamines, morphine, THC, PCP, buprenorphine and about 5 others. This tested for 13 different things. All positive. Thank god...

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.

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...

Hello Posters, I am a 60 year old man who has gone from Methadone being free to the point of having to pay $12 per day. I can no longer afford this. CAN ANYONE TELL ME ANYWHERE IN THE United States where there is a free Methadone Clinic or a clinic that is subsidized. I don't know what to do. Please try to help me. Thank you for any post or info you can give me. ## Unfortunately, I don't know of any completely free ones. There are some state run clinics that will do an income based treatment, so some people don't pay anything, while what others pay can vary depending on their income. However, if you do work or have some type of income, that's liable to be about $12 a day for daily treatments, anyway. Learn more Methadone details here. Do you have any type of insurance? #...

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. ## 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?
