Getting off Methadone!
There are 2 of us males early 30s. One of us underwent major back surgery 3 years ago and a has been addicted to pain meds for a total of 5 years and myself about 3 just from simply being his main caretaker and dipping into the cookie jar a few to many times like an idiot. We went back to our general dr. (same guy) And explained that we are both full fledged addicts an have been obtaining methadone off the street as is seems to be the only thing that works. He asked us what we where getting off the street and we told him Methadone. His response was, well that's the smartest thing you have done so far!? because of its extremely long effect on the body. We told him we need his help that we just have no money left and our livers are just a mess... we cant move on with life. He decided ...

side effects of methadone
my dr just put me on methadone hcl 5-325 for a 3 level back fusion and was wondering if this causes bad heartburn? I've tried finding the side effects with no luck. ## It will cause heartburn at first.When you start takeing it.I have been on methadone for about 17+ years.It causes alot of things,you will start gaining weight,your teeth will start geting bad and you will stay consipated.That is what i have seen it do everyone i know.Thats what is has done to me.I am ready to get off of this but i have heard some bad story trying to stop.I was told by a friend that suboxone was the best way to detox off methadone.I worry because i have been on methadone for so long.If anybody has a better ideal,i sure could use some adwise.Thanks ## You can detox off Methadone--with Methadone. Just gr...

doctors negligence
Ive been taking methadone since 2005 for chronic pain. Ive recently developed 2 other painful health conditions that cause great pain however my current doctor refuses to prescribe what ive been prescribed before. He will give me 90 pills a month sometimes 45 depends on his mood. Im not even getting adequate pain relief as i was being prescrbed 120 before. Had to change doctors cuz of insurance purposes. I dont know what to do. He also has let me walk around for the last 2 yrs with chronically torn liagaments in my right and left ankle. I begged for a mri and finally got one after 2 yrs showing i have severe damage some liagaments are no longer visible. Yet he thinks im lying about being in pain. Is this legal? Can he really put a patient off that long? I can no longer walk normally if i c

methadone and immetrex
can I use my immetrex inj. when I get a migraine, I am on 70 mg methadone ## Hello, Pamela! How are you? I didn't find any interactions or problems listed between these two medications, but it's always best to double check this information to be certain. The Methadone 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?

anxiety / depression
my doctor won`t put me on anything like benzos because im on methadone. im now on sertraline 50mg and thats not helping either, this has been going on for 5 months now and i feel im not getting the help i should be because im on methadone. my life is a nightmare right now. is ther anything i can do? ## Have you tried seeing a different doctor, perhaps a mental health specialist? They are usually the most knowledgeable about what medications can and can't be safely combined to treat such conditions. And Benzodiazepines really don't help much with depression, they mainly act as downers, so they can actually make it worse. ## Please I need EVERYONES ATTETION I BEG OF YOU!!! I have never taken drugs my whole entire life I was very against them and always degraded and very judgmental...

Medications I am taking not controling the pain
I need some suggestions about my medications? I think the doctor is really low dosing me in comparison to my pain. I would like to know if others agree and what has worked for you. I have chronic back pain and was taking 80mg of methadone. Had Disc Surgery in the neck and turned out fine however the lower is causing problems and now for some reason I have developed swollen feet and ankles which is from what the doctors believe right now a disease like MS. Anyway the pain in my feet from the swelling is so bad, horrible, terrible I can barley walk. Can not work. Scream a lot in the middle of a step and in my sleep. When I can sleep. no more then 2 hours or less at a time or at the entire night. i have tried to explain how bad the pain is to my pain specialist who has seen the extreme cha...

HOW LONG DOES METHADONE STAY IN YOUR SYSTEM?
Is methadone completly out of your system in 72 hours, or does it take longer since methadone seems to last longer that 4 - 6 hours? ## Although your system can rid itself of the methadone within about 72 hours in most cases, traces of it will still be detected in your urine for up to 3 weeks...longer if you get a blood test. ## It took me 3 months to kick methodone. After that, I had paws for another 4 months. Don't get started on that evil stuff unless you plan to stay on it for life. It's by far the worst withdrawl ever. Beware, you have been warned. Take Suboxone or subutex instead. I can't stress this enough. I wouldn't wish methodone withdrawl on my worst enemy. I went to treatment for one month to kick it. I was twice as sick after my 30 days were up. I had to go ...

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).

I used a half a gram of herion on Friday but don't use regularly. I weigh 157 and 5'7 female... If I have a ua on Monday will it show up? ## Yes, there is a chance that it will be detected.

CANNOT FIND METHADONE IN PORT CHARLOTTE, FL
i have been taking methadone for awhile, now suddenly the pharmacy will not carry it, but they will carry the much more expensive pain killers....why is this happening? is it all about the money again? This is killing me. my rx payments went from %54 to $450. I cannot afford this ## I'm sorry, but which medications they do or do not carry is up to your pharmacy. While most are very considerate and obliging, they are not required to carry any specific medications. Have you tried seeing if one of your local pharmacies will order it in for you? 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.

methadone pain management doctor on long island
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?

methadone clinic payment opeions
I am currently a patient at a methadone clinic in Bham. I find that I am having a hard time paying for my doses. I pick up 5 bottles a week 200mg a day. does any one know of a place that gives help for paying for methadone? please let me know if you know of anyone thank you ## You honestly take 200mgs. a day? That's enough to kill a horse! ## Aloha I am not sure where Bham unless Alabama? Yes 200 mls is a lot but at one time I was at 450 but law have changed a lot! Here over 150 a day you have to go daily.no 6 packs, in Hawaii the state aid pays for the program unless you are well off and have private Ins that may have no coverage! Do you have pain or is this drug maintenance for you? I found going down 5 a month will get you down to levels that if you can't pay it will not be l...

I dropped my whole bottle of methadone in a glass of coke how can I get it out
I dropped a 40 methadone in a glass of coke . What can I do .. I really them for my pain ## Drink the coke...or is there something here I am not catching? ## You dropped multiple Methadone tablets, or just one? If it's just the one dose, then I believe Art is spot on, it's not going to turn into a dangerous substance, just because it got mixed into coke. If it's multiple doses, then you can't do that, because you'd be getting too much at once and, if that's the case, you'll need to contact your doctor or clinic. Learn more Methadone details here. ## There are 40 tablets in there ## I just have to ask. How did you manage to "drop" them ALL into the coke? I mean you would almost have to work at getting that many to magically drop in that opening! What g...

Methadone Clinic that accepts medicaid for payment
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 ...

is there any drs in south jersey that perscribes methodone
my son has lost all his id and cannot get into methdone clinic around here was wondering if there is any dr. in south jersey that perscribes it ## Your son will have to have his ID to be seen at a clinic or at a drs office. Private drs aren't allowed to prescribe Methadone for addiction maintance, so he will have to go to a clinic. Private drs are only allowed to prescribe Methadone for chronic severe pain. But, he won't be treated anywhere without proper ID.
