Doctors Willing To Prescribe Pain Medication in columbus ohio or springfield ohio
33 Replies RSS
My doctor had a stoke and was prescribing me 30 mg a day of methadone for a chronic pain syndrome..I am a 51 yr old,that has never abused drugs!!Does anyone know a dr.or pain dr. that is willing to prescribe this to me..Either in Col, ohio,or Springfield ohio!! Thanks for your time!! ## You'll most likely need to see a pain management specialist, due to the new regulations that were put in place at the beginning of the year. Due to the increased rates of over prescribing and improper prescribing, the DEA and FDA are making it harder for general practitioners and surgeons to prescribe such medications for long-term use and most people that need them must be referred to pain management.

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).

5 Replies RSS
I took a 10 miligram methadone at 10 am and gave a ua at 1pm same day I need to know if it will show up that soon after taking it? ## Did it end up working for you Nervous? Swim is wondering how long it takes methadone to digest and show up in your urine? ## If i took 60mg of methedone and have never done it before i weight 150pnds 5'6 how long will it take to get out its been about 50hours ## Methadone half life is super long. It will be out of your system entirely in 72 hrs from taking the dose. Try to steer clear of methadone! It's a deadly long road you do t want to go down, or try to pull out of. It's one of the most difficult drugs to detox off of, AND a single dose can kill you if you haven't built up a tolerance. ## I was told an hour later...however if your bein...

How Long Does It Stay In Your System to clear methadone
65 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 clonipin ativan or valium? i read on this site that it only takes 2-4 days to be clean for ativan and clonipin??? ## 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 ...

Doctors in Michigan that prescribe methadone

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 ...

Akron, Canton, Youngstown or Ohio doctors prescribe opiods pain
79 Replies RSS
Hello,I'm in servere pain.Need doctors from Youngstown Ohio Canton Akron+Cleveland+western Pa.My doctor got arrested now I'm left with no doctor. Anyone know where I could go? Please let me know. Thank you. Tim ## May I ask the name of the Dr you were seeing? I don't think I'm supposed to drop names here but I'd be happy to give you names of those located here. You can very likely do a Google search for pain managers in the area. Why not have your pcp refer you somewhere? You're going to need some kind of referral there's no question of that. They don't make appointments for new patients over the phone without a faxed referral and very likely will request the records come from the referring Dr. Why? They don't trust that the patient hasn't made ch...

methadone and garcinia cambogia
45 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...

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
30 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...

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!!

im looking for a doctor that priscribes methadone. i dont want to go the clinics. suboxone does not work for me and i really want to get off of oxycodone. my boyfriend has been clean for 4 months now. and from my car accident and i also have nerve damage, it makes it harder for me to get off, because im in so much pain. i tryed many times to stop, but i cant handle the pain. i lost everyone i loved and i dont want to lose my boyfriend to. ## I am very sorry, but if you are looking for something outside of the setting of a clinic, there is really no way to know what doctor would be willing to prescribe it. When it comes to addiction treatment, most doctors will not provide such treatment outside of a clinic, because they do have to follow certain laws and treatment protocols, in order to...

My husband is taking liquid methadone has been for about four years and this morning he noticed his medicine was cloudy and then he took his other doses out and found several others of his doses were too. They were filled at the same time. Is this supposed to happen? And is it common? He said he hasn't bee feeling right for the last couple of days. I am worried, has anyone have this happen to thiers? And what could cause it? ## I'm not sure, but it makes me wonder if perhaps they didn't mix it properly. Has he tried calling the clinic or doctor that he receives it from to ask them?

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.

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...

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. prescibed both Methadone and Morphine.The Meth. 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 many years...

methadone and surgery

I'm having surgery for knee replacement and this is the first time I've had surgery and general anaesthetic while on methadone. Can anyone advise me about the safety of this and how they will treat post-operative pain? ## I have had two surgerys while on methadone, you will be fine they gave me percocet for pain and it took the edge off which is what it should do, alot of people think they should be pain free after a surgrey while taking pain pills but that is not the case hope all goes well ## Hello. 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. Methadone won't help your post op pain, so he/she will have to prescribe another type of painkiller. One of the reasons i...

I used heroin last night and I'm taking methadone plus Norco. Can I get off on blaming my test being positive for opiates on my medications? please respond ## NO!! If u have opiates in ur system the only way could be from heroin, perks, oxys..exc..but methodone no.no opiates.. ## I don't know I'm wondering the same thing but apparently the guy that responded before you didn't read your entire question because methadone is NOT an opiate but NORCO is an opiate (its hydrocodone) but since your body synthesizes heroin into MORPHINE I'm not sure what it would show up as. I'm trying to figure out the same thing... ## Methadone is a synthetic OPIOID. On a drug test, heroin shows up as exactly what it is...diacetylmorphine. It is easily distinguishable from methadone, mo...

doctors who prescribe methadone located south of boston ma for pain
4 Replies RSS
Hi, I have been on methadone for pain for several years. I hate going to the methadone clinic because I am uncomfortable with most of the people using the clinic. I am looking for a private doctor who will prescribe methadone for pain and is south of Boston. Thanks for any help you can provide ## Hello, JT! How are you? If you have been going to a Methadone clinic, then that is going to be noted in your records and even if you weren't going for addiction treatment, a regular doctor won't be able to prescribe it for you. Thus, I'm afraid a clinic is your only option. 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? ## ...
