methadone asc 116 & New blood pressure problems
3 Replies RSS
Ok I've been on Methadone since 2005 & I've never had blood pressure problems until now ... I was just curious if anyone else has experienced higher than normal BP since these new ASC 116 hit the market ... & im not saying the pills caused it I'm just trying to eliminate any possibilities & pin point what is causing my new blood pressure problems ... ## That is very odd, Methadone itself usually causes low blood pressure, not high. What have your numbers been at? The FDA classifies Methadone as an opiate, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Are you on any other medications? Has anything in your lifestyle changed recently? How old are you? ## Thnx for replying .....

Methadone 10mg Asc 116
185 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...

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 for neuro...

Need a good dr in the medford grants pass oregon area. ## 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. You may also have to ask if they are accepting new patients, as some aren'...

I just took two ten mg methadone pills will they be out by Thursday i drink a lot of water please let me know soon as possible ## Depends on how long u took it. It has been in mu system now for over 45 days. Can't wait till its gone either. ## Take good advice-avoid opiates altogether. They can kill you. Young people are dying and becoming vegatables because of this crap. ## If you haven't been taking it everyday, for a long period of time it should be gone in a few days. Find a test at the drug store before having some1 else test you. ## I don't know where these people get their information. I could go into this long explanation of the half life of a pill times 5, but I don't want to confuse anyone. Just remember this, the basic rule of thumb is 60 to 72 hours on everyt...

10 Mg Methadone 54 142 tablets for iv use
15 Replies RSS
how do i prepare these 54-142 tabs for iv vinegar ? ## It is not safe to use a medication for injection if it has not been specially made to be used that way. Tablets contain fillers and not all of them are meant to be broken down by the human body, they are normally just expelled in your waste. However, if you try to break down a tablet for injection, then you are placing these substances in your body in a way, in which, it cannot process them out. This creates the very real risk of blockages, which can result in stroke or embolism. Are there any questions or comments? ## I have 10 mg Methadone pills. I tried to break it down and inject it, but it seems not to work BUT i heard it is possible. When i add water and cook it...it becomes this thick substance...what can i do to fix that or ...

how long do you have to take methadone get withdrawal symptoms
13 Replies RSS
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...

How Long Will It Take To Get Methadone Out Of Your System
6 Replies RSS
yesterday morning i took a 10mg methadone i have not taken anything in a few months i have a drug test on tuesday will it be out of my system by then ## Depending on the type of test taken, Methadone can be detected in your urine for up to 6-12 days after your last dose; up to 24hrs in your blood stream, up to 1-10 days in your saliva, and as long as 90 days in your hair. That said, I do have my doubts that it will go undetected in any test except a blood test. If you have a valid prescription for Methadone you should be fine though. I hope this info helps to answer your question! ## i dont have a script i only took the one methadone saturday morning and i go today for my drug test i have not taken anything for a long time im hoping ill be okay thank you for answering me ## Took 20mg of...

GP that can (short term) prescribe narcotics Youngstown, OH
Post a Reply
I apologize if I say something that is out of line/unable to disclose-not my intention at all, please let me know. I am seeking a general practitioner just because I need a doctor. I didn't realize how much I depended on my pain management doctor to handle all of my medical concerns. He's written me antidepressants, called in an us for a kidney stone, diagnosed a minor heart condition, and many other things. I was recently dismissed for violating my pain mgmt agreement and when I asked what I should do, I was told my only hope is a methadone clinic or suboxone. I had a future appt that was cancelled and was not given a final script. I've seen the research and I feel I'd rather marry my worst ex than start taking suboxone. I'm not trying to trade one for another. I al...

I have been taking 80 mg of methadone for the past 6 months. I had 3 dirty ua's and they decided to kick me out of the program. When I asked them if they were going to medically detox me, they refused to do so. I know that this is illegal. Who can I contact to take legal action if I don't have the funds to so myself? ## Thats crazy to me.. at my clinic, dirty UAs only got you no take homes.. they didnt even lower your dose.. and the times they would start detox was only if you missed a day,and then they bring you back up.. or if they didnt get their money... then they just detox you down... i have NEVER heard of someone being kicked off for dirty tests,and especially without detoxing them first... i have heard of no detox and being kicked out if you break any serious rules.. sel...

Liquid Methadone Together With Morphine

my mom takes 36ml of liquid methadone 3 times a day and 7ml of liquid morphine every hour for cancer. I want her to get off the drugs and into some sort of treatment for her cancer. Is she going to need help getting off the drugs? ## I am a Stage 4 Ovarian Cancer survivor. And really I understand your concerns. And I guess it depends on your individual situation. Just keep in mind that it is you Mother's choice whether or not to pursue cancer treatment. Treatment in itself is a living hell and just because she starts treatment doesn't mean she will be coming off of her pain meds. Some people would rather live their last days with as little pain as possible instead of adding even more pain, stress, and agony by going through a treatment that may or may not even work.

35mgs of methadone with 60mgs morphine
3 Replies RSS
Can I take 35mgs. of methadone and 60mgs morphine? ## Hello, Jason! How are you? These two medications really shouldn't be mixed, unless your doctor has specifically instructed you to do so. Learn more Morphine details here. Learn more Methadone details here. 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. Both of them cause sedation and, if someone isn't opiate tolerant, it could sedate them to far, basically causing an overdose, per se. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Yes you can, ONLY IF YOUR PHYSICIAN HAS PRESCRIBED THEM TO YOU. THEY HAVE FOUND, THAT FOR SOME ODD REASON IT DECREASES THE DEPENDENCE LEVELS. Note: I am assuming if your doctor presc...

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...

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.

If you are on methadone maintenance for opiate addiction, you will need to tell the surgon so he/she knows how to treat your pain and your general sedation.
