dilaudid / 170 mg of methadone
5 Replies RSS
I have 4 mg of dilaudid but in on about 170mg of methadone, I recently feel and sprained my elbow and was wondering if this will take away the pain, or will I be taking it for no reason ## Hi Joanna from RI, because u r on such a high dose of methadone, taking the 4mg of Dilaudid will probably defeat the purpose. I wouldn't recommend taking the Dilaudid. You probably wouldn't get any effect from it anyway. But, I wouldn't mix the 2. I'm sorry 2 hear about your pain, I suffer everyday with pain. But, I'm on suboxone. Use 2 b on methadone, which helped much more with pain. But, I switched 2 suboxone. What a dumb move I made. I'm also from RI. Good Luck! ## No dilaidid is on of those meds that work great on pain while takeing methadone i was on very high doses of me...

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 ...

can methadone abuse be confirmed by a test
1 Reply RSS
The mother of my child is in a methadone program. She sleeps a lot and I've seen her nodding off on the couch but not lying back, sitting up! When I ask her about anything to do with her addiction problem she does not want to talk about it! If I press her she gets quick tempered and hostile! I think she's buying extra methadone and abusing it because she shows all the signs of it from what I've read about it and I fear for my child's safety! ## Yes, it is a narcotic opiate, so it could be discovered via various exams. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. Is she on any other medications? Have you tried consulted a social worker?

positive result for methadone, could this be caused by benadryl
9 Replies RSS
Does benadryl give a false positive for methadone specifically? ## Can benadryl give give a false positive for methadone ## I would like to know this also ## Benadryl absolutely cannot give a false positive for methadone. Heres why: Methadone is an opioid (synthetic opiate) and passes the blood-brain barrier, which gives one the sensation of being high. Now, benadryl (diphenhydramine) is a synthetic antihistamine, which blocks the effects of histamines by binding to special sites on cells called receptors, but its important to note that benadryl does NOT pass the blood-brain barrier. **Lastly, and most importantly, methadone cannot be detected on ANY store bought 12 panel drug test, and is very, very rarely tested for in commercial and/or government drug tests. Methadone must be specifi...

63 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.

Sacramento, Ca area doctor who prescribes methadone for pain
8 Replies RSS
Both my husband and I have been on methadone for pain mgmt for over 5 yrs. We moved to Marysville, Ca and can't find a doctor that prescribes methadone so we are extending our search area to include Sacramento area doctors. 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. Of course by now we are completely addicted but because we weren't on it exclusively for addiction they just said good luck and there's the door. PLEASE help. 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...

How Long Does It Take For Your System To Clear Methadone
70 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 ...

methadone clinic and drug testing
99 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...

Methadone/ depression issues?
34 Replies RSS
I have been taking methadone tablets,15mg-3 times a day, for back pain. I also have some depression issues as well, The methadone seems to make me in a good mood as well as taking my back pain away. I do have many mood swings lately where I go from very good feeling to very bad very quickly sometimes, This usually happens when the methadone starts wearing off. I think I may need to see a psyhciatrist about this. I do the methadone for pain, but maybe I need something else for my depression, I also have suicidal thoughts sometimes too, I have heard of mood stabilizers, Do these work? If anyone could suggest a medication , It would be appreciated. Also when the methadone is wearing off, I will feel very tired and weak, Without the metadone, I really cannot function that well due to the co...

i am struggling real bad with panic attacks ..lots of doctors don't understand some people need benzos to live a productive life and i am 1 of them ,so please help??? ## Hello, Robert! How are you? I'm sorry, but this website does not prescribe nor sell any medications or products, it is an information only website. You might be creating the problem yourself, if you're seeing doctors and asking for benzos. They have the tendency to be habit forming and are often abused, so most doctors will view that as being drug seeking behavior and just won't see you or will refuse to prescribe them. Normally, the doctor expects to make the diagnosis and suggest what you should try as a treatment, if one is appropriate. Additionally, benzodiazepines do not help with depression, since ...

Not high, but just normal for the first time ever. Even though I am not using (4 years) I sometimes wish I could just be on 10 mg a day ## methadone being a pain med is a depressant however euphoria is a side effect. works for me. there are only 2 ways to get treat severe pain or to treat addiction. if you are thinking about a meth program you will have to present yourself as an addict and drop dirty urines. it's not so hard now a days as you don't have to have track marks you can join by just being addicted to pills. ## I have been on methadone for almost 2months, I was seriously addicted to pain pills for ove...
