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 ...

How Long Does Methadone Stay In Your System For A Urine Test
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...

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 ...

KY DOCTOR NEEDED
A special person in my life has been taking methadone for over 10 yrs. Like a lot of other comments, the clinic really is impossible to try to pay for. Just found out his ins. will cover methadone. Now desperately need to find a m.d. in southeast KY who will write prescription. Nearest to bell county. ## Hello, Bill! How are you? I'm sorry, but if he has been going to an addiction clinic for treatment or maintenance, then he must remain at the clinic. It is against the law for a regular doctor to prescribe it for that. I wish I had better news for you, many people have asked, but this is the way the laws currently stand. 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 constipat...

pain dr north georgia
Hi. I have been going through a war now for years trying to manage my pain from my ruptured and bulging disk in my lower back. For years I just dealt with the pain. But about three years ago I was forced into a point that I had to work so I started going to a pain clinic in TN and after a year I moved to Florida for my husband to get treatment for cancer. When I moved I had enough of my meds for the month but I couldn't find a doctor to see me in time and ran out. I started with withdrawls and every doctor I saw down there didn't believe I was in pain. So I had no choice but to go to methadone for the withdrawls. Now two years later I'm trying to get off it and get back to a pain clinic. I've been going through withdrawal for 3 weeks and recently started getting migraine...

I need to know the herb I read about in this forum to help with craving sweets and other side effects on Methadone!! PLEASE HELP!!
I was reading in this forum a week or so ago and come upon someone talking about an herb capsule that helps with methadone side effects, craving sweets, sweating and a couple of other side effects. Is there anyone that could please help me with this?? PLEASE PLEASE!! I thought I found the answers to all my prayers. Except now, I can not find the name of this herb for the life of me! I truly appreciate all your help! Thank you and have a wonderful day!! ## Are you sure it was this forum?

Methadone or death
I am 34 years old and a addict. I have been an addict since I was 21 years old. I have always been able to stop using when I wanted until last July when a string of very disturbing events happened in my life leaving me to attempt taking my own life. I jumped off a bridge falling 72 plus feet to the ground and damaging most of my body. I may be alive but i wish I was dead. I am not able to find a doctor who is willing to help me with pain medication with my past and to be honest the only thing that helps me is H. I do not use the H no longer to feel high. I use to be able to move with out pain. Even with high doses of H I still am in massive amounts of pain. I have done a lot of research and I want to get on Methadone for the pain as well as to get away from any other drug. Thing is I li...

I Need To Find A Doctor Indianapolis IN that Will prescribe Methadone For Chronc Pain
I AM TRYING TO FIND A DOCTOR THAT WILL PRESCRIBE METHADONE FOR CHRONIC PAIN. ITS COMMONLY KNOWN AS DOLOPHINE AND COMES IN 10MG TABLETS. I USUALLY TAKE 40MG PER DAY. IT IS SO MUCH CHEAPER AND MORE CONVENIENT THAN CLINICS. I AM TOO FAR AWAY FROM CLINIC ANYWAY. THANK YOU ## I'm sorry, but there's no central listing of doctors that will prescribe any particular medication and there's never a guarantee when seeing one that they will prescribe anything. The main problem with Methadone is that is so highly habit forming and addictive. This makes most doctors very reluctant to prescribe it for pain, unless everything else has completely failed to work and all other options have been exhausted. Learn more Methadone details here. What else have you tried to treat your pain? There are ...

Doctors Who Will Prescribe Pain Medication Portland Oregon
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.

oblong white pill last 2 digits a 5
I found half of an oblong white pill imprinted with A 5 as it's last 2 digits ## Hi Jen, Would the last two digits be "55" or "A5"? Just wanted to confirm. If it's "55", one guess I have is that it may be a 5mg Methadone tablet manufactured by Mallinckrodt. This particular tablet is white and oblong with an imprint of "M 57 55"... The "M" is on one side and on the other there is a score line that divides the "57" | "55". So if you have only half a tablet it may just contain the "55" and nothing else. Certainly worth looking into if you can pull up a photograph on google. Can you please post back and let me know if that's actually what it turns out to be? Thanks!

Doctors That Write Methadone In East Tennessee
Anyone know any private doctors that WILL write methadone for sure? In the east Tennessee area ? Tanks ## Hello, Listed below are 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 site a try too if you come up with different results for some reason or another: wellness.com/find/pain%20management%20specialist Unfortunately, you can never know whether someone will write you a prescription or not just because they wrote it for someone else. "Legit" doctors will write a prescription on a case by case basis, depending on whether or not you (the patient) truly needs a specific medication. Due to the high level of dru...

Maine doctor to perscribe methadone
I have been treated for chronic back pain for about ten years and have a spotless record of compliance. I have no insurance so have to pay the bills out of pocket. About three years ago I was paying 40 dollars for a 30 day script of methadone. 10mg 3 times a day. Then the price went to 74.00 per month. then to 162.00 per month. For meds that cost less than fifteen dollars. Are there any doctors in Maine (my zip is 04537) That will treat a patient fairly. ## Hello, Scott! How are you doing? I'm not sure I understand your issue. If your doctor is prescribing a medication and your getting it filled at your pharmacy, the price has nothing to do with your doctor treating you fairly. The price is set by the pharmacy and their supplier. And with the new regulations that have been put in pl...

im in texas and have been on methadone for 9 yrs and its not looking good to get my methadone in williston, mabe a dr cause i see North dakota is the only state that does not take methadone clinics help please ## Hello, Rebecca! How are you? If you require it for addiction/maintenance treatment, then a clinic is your only option. A private practice doctor is not allowed to prescribe it for that. And yes, North Dakota does have Methadone clinics, as well. 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 you know where the methadone clinics are in north Dakota ??? I've been trying to move there for the past 3 yrs and have...

searching for a methadone docter
I am looking for a docter whi will give me methadone i have moved and the nearest clinic is 2hrs away if anyone can i can drive to charlotte nc if i need too ## Hello, Amy! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. However, if you were previously taking it from a clinic, then going to another one is your only option. It is illegal for private doctors to prescribe it for addiction/maintenance treatment. 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 one that might be closer in that area?

I have a unique situation. I am a recovering addict with severe chronic pain. I have really bad scoliosis that's in my neck and back and been in several really bad car wrecks.
