can tizandine or divalproex cause shaking hands
1 Reply RSS
my husband has always had a little shaking hands. but now that he is on these 2 new meds he is shaking so badly he has a hard time writing anything and his hands jerk so badly it is not hidable. He is also on methadone, lisinopril, effexxor, and pantoprazole. ## Divalproex can cause that as a side effect, according to the FDA, along with nausea, mood changes, weight gain, and memory loss. Has he informed his doctor? He may need to try a different medication, or try something to help alleviate the tremors.

12 Replies RSS
I go to the methadonr clinic every day and take 85 mg of it i at 4 somas and had a 15 panel drug screan and they srnt it to the lab will i fail my drug screan or will i be ok. ## I just did a urine drug screen, take SOMA (prescribed) and it did show up on the panel. ## No. I take them everyday. ## I was on a clinic for 8 years and never showed Soma, which I've been on for 10yrs. ## No, Soma does not show up. I have been testing for parole, and the methadone clinic for the last 10 years and it has never shown up. The only time Soma will ever show up is if the actually write Soma on the lab paper to be tested for and send it a lab specifically asking to test for SOMA. ## I wonder what kind of testing you all are getting- as I had a UA test yr before last, and not only did *Soma* show ...

Methadone Clinic that accepts medicaid for payment
58 Replies RSS
live in seminole county, Florida. I am on medicaid and want to know if there is a clinic or doctor that will accept medicaid for methadone maintenance. ## I really wish I could help, but I haven't been able to find any that are directly listed in that area, however, I will admit, I am not familiar with Florida, so there could be some places that I am missing. Have you tried asking your doctor or perhaps calling the Medicaid office to see if they have a place they can recommend? Another good place to ask would be your local hospitals, especially the social workers, they usually have listings of such places for those in need that may have trouble finding them. ## I live in Bradenton-Sarasota & I go to the PAR clinic in Bradenton. It's on US41 in a plaza where Livingston's ...

methadone and garcinia cambogia
70 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...

How Long Does It Take For Your System To Clear Methadone
68 Replies RSS
if i've been taking 50 mg methadone qd for 3 yrs and wonder how many days will it take to have a clean ua? what about occasional use of xanax klonopin ativan or valium? i read on this site that it only takes 2-4 days to be clean for ativan and klonopin??? ## Actually, that number, 3 to 4 days, would be more accurate for the Methadone, narcotics usually clear your system pretty fast. However, the Benzodiazepines can take anywhere from 4 to 6 days, give or take, depending on the doses you were taking and how often. If you have a prescription, however, there is no need to worry, just inform them of that, when you go in for the test. Are there any other comments or questions? ## is a benzodiazepine xanax? have to take pee test fri..took one yesterday..should i worry also took roxycodin ...

how long after taking methadone can you take suboxone
2 Replies RSS
I took 60 mgs of methadone sat morn at 8 am.. today is monday 4 pm , am I ok to take 4 mgs of suboxone today.?.. ## It really depends on how long you have been on the methadone and the dose you are at. If your only dose was 60mgs of done sat morning and you haven't take any done before or after that I say your good. If you take 60 everyday you may want to wait day or two more. better safe than sorry...and you will be sorry. ## I took about 15 mgs of methadone for 4 days then just 5 mgs this morning at 8:30am.. Am I safe to take 2 mgs of suboxone now only being 6 hrs? I feel sick with withdrawal symptoms now anyway..

methadone clinic and drug testing
93 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 marijuana levels were really high, and they told me they don't test for marijuana. 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...

how to safely wean off 280 mg daily of methadone
4 Replies RSS
My regular doctor left the clinic I have been at since 2010. New doctor at same clinic wants to wean me off my daily 280mg of methadone in just 4 weeks time. Have been on this dose for 25+ years... Mayo clinic, and my original doctor from Hawaii and clearance from two cardiologist have said no reason to stop at this point and no risk. Mistake was to not check this new doctor out first who I have since discovered is notorious for pulling this on patients for no reason. This happened conveniently for this doctor on a Friday..... can't even try to see another doctor until Monday...will also contact a health attorney.... ## Unfortunately, a health attorney will not likely do much good. No doctor is obligated to prescribe you anything, or treat you, at all, unless you're in life thre...

Methadone NO NO NO!!!!!

Methadone is the worst drug and most wicked drug in this entire world. They give it to people like me with pill problems and then you can never get off the stuff. I made the worst mistake of my life going into a Methadone program. The people at these palces pretend like they are there for you but they are not. They are there to keep you on this drug that rots away at your mind and body, and they do it well. They want your money. Do you know how cheap liquid methadone is? They milk off your addiction and act like they are doing something good for people like me. I HATE Methadone. I hate what it's doing to me and I HATE that I came in this place for a pill addiction four years ago, at 22, told I had one year and I would be weened off and here I am. I fight with these people all the ti...

suffering from cronic headaches and neck pain due to a variety of events ## looking for a new dr. who will be willing to give me the same meds as I was taking before I moved here, they are narcotics that I take on a regualar basis for headaches and neck pain, hydro codone 10 to be exact, where I came from it is tough to find a dr. who will help you, how will I start over in Portland to find a helpful Dr.? ## I'd suggest looking for someone that specializes in pain management and making sure that they get a full copy of your medical records from your prior doctor. In many cases, if you go in asking for a specific medication they will see it as drug seeking behavior, but they can see what works for you as documented by other physicians, they are more likely to prescribe accordingly.

can you be approved for weight loss surgery while being prescribed methadone opiate addiction
9 Replies RSS
I am being prescribed methadone for opiate addiction been of all other drugs for 4 years I'm in the process of trying to have weight loss surgery and trying to find out if they will let me have it done since I'm on methadone? ## Hello, Brandy! How are you? Have you talked to the doctor or clinic that would be doing the surgery? There is a chance that you may not be able to, since if you're planning something like stomach banding, it can affect how some medications are absorbed. ## It puts you at greater risks for complications with anesthesia. For elective surgery it is a risk most drs would rather not take. Talk to your surgeon. ## I am having Gastic Sleeve surgery and have been on 110 mg of Methadone for 10 months. My surgeon has been wonderful. All is OK with anethesia an...

I'm in need of s pain management doctor to prescribe methadone because I have used the methadone and it works great for my pain. Could anyone please help with advice on a doctors? ## Hello, Travis! How are you? I'm sorry, but there is no listing of doctors according to what they will or will not prescribe that I can refer to for you. Do you currently have a PCP that you see regularly? If so, they should be able to refer you to someone. 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. Does anyone know of a good doctor in that area? ## Yes , New York pain management in west babylon , babylon and Bayshore . They prescribed it to me for approx 8 years then had to s...

If you do go on Methadone, plan on being on it for many years or life. Suboxone is the best way to go. Monthly supply. Methadone, you have to go every day and earn take homes. I'm lucky to be alive because of Methadone. Very addicting, can't even go 1 day without it. Its just a money making legal way to sell hard core narcotics. Good luck whatever you choose.

I'm on 35mg of methadone at a clinic, I was on 175mg and got down to 10mg and it was terrible!! I went very slow, but I went back up. Does anyone have any advice on how to get off this crap?? I have been on it for 3 1/2 years and I want to get off so bad but I just can't even think about withdrawal. So please any advice or success stories would be great! Thanks so much. ## Pour all your carries into a non clear container and start only taking a sip when you start to find your not feeling well, and only a lil sip. Wait half hour to one hour and if you still feel like s*** take another sip and i mean small sips.

what could cause a positive test for methadone
63 Replies RSS
a random drug test yielded a positive test for methadone. If you are not taking methadone, how could that be? ## I am not taking methadone however a drug test for a job today showed positive. I do take several medications and take stuff (legal) like nyquil etc all the time what could have made me test positive ?? ## Methadone is a synthetic opiate and it is possible that on a test that isn't done by a certified lab, other substances could cause you to show a false positive for it, including other synthetic or semi-synthetic opiates. Few employers are required to use a certified lab and most of the regular, inexpensive labs do have an error rate that ranges fro 4 to 50%. Sharron, in your case, it could have been the NyQuil, as it has been known to cause a false positive for Methadone...

Are Doctors beginning to NOT prescribe methadone anymore for chronic pain?
46 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...

Doctors in Louisiana that prescribe methadone for chronic pain
306 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...

My wife has panic attacks, and with some financial stress she is really having a breakdown. I've heard horror stories about benzo's and methadone so I want to hear from someone that takes them with methadone to know how safe it is. She takes 65 mil methadone daily, liquid. Anyone? ## I have been on methadone for 2 yrs now and I also take a benzo to treat sever anxiety. I am also on the patient advisory board at the methadone clinic I attend and have 6 take homes, meaning I only go to the clinic once a wk and take the rest at my home due to following the rules and being clean from all drugs, unless I am prescribed. It can be safe to take methadone and a benzo, but only if the doctor prescribing the benzo knows you're on methadone. The part that needs to be watched is to make ...
