Methadone Clinic that accepts medicaid for payment
63 Replies RSS
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 ...

kentucky clinics that accepts medicaid for methadone
3 Replies RSS
I need to know if medicaid will pay for my methadone treatment in ky? ## It won't where I live.medicaid hasn't been expanded here but even if you could get it the insurance won't cover mmt.only detox. ## @Margie, With seemingly ever-changing laws surrounding the dispensing and coverage of controlled substances, I think your best bet would probably be to contact a methadone clinic directly for more specific details on their protocol. It may be that you'd have to contact a number of different clinics and compare feedback. I'd also encourage you to look into Kentucky's medicaid Drug Formulary (or Preferred Drug List) to for up to date information on what their medicaid covers; as coverage seems to vary from state to state. ## I live in Harrodsburg ky.. I need to fin...

Methadone 54/142 Tablet Efficacy
12 Replies RSS
I'm used to taking 10 mg of methadone with an M on it. Now I've been given a round white pill with 54/142 ASC. I am sleepy, nauseous, and have no energy. I've never felt this way before, in fact the M's give me energy. Why is this happening? ## I imagine you're getting a generic version.. How do they get away with this? Do the pharmacies benefit by automatically changing this over possibly making more money with a generic? I've experienced this with other drugs and since there is no way of knowing if the generic version is up to the standard of the original, who knows if you're getting the maximum benifit that you're meant to get? ## I can tell you without a doubt that they are generic. I get the same pills but with different results. After they quit givi...

Methadone 10mg Asc 116
211 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. ## 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 labs and there relatively new but they work fine if ...

Liquid Methadone color discrepancy
59 Replies RSS
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? What are the symptoms he's experiencing when he says he isn't feeling right? ## never heard of cloudy methadone unless juice is added.even then its not cloudy. Is this is the clear or red ...

Doctors Who Prescribe Methadone

I am addicted to strong pain meds and I am tired of having to come off of them, the withdrawal is awful. I went to a urgent care doc and was prescribed suboxone. I take anxiety meds too but he wants me to stop. I really need the anxiety meds but he wants me off them. How do I get him to change it from suboxone to methadone so I can take my anxiety meds? ## Legally, he can't. To get Methadone for addiction treatment in the U.S. requires that you go to an actual Methadone treating clinic, private doctors aren't allowed to prescribe it for addiction treatment. What anxiety medication do you take? 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 ...

Methadone maintenance and ethical treatment at clinics
Post a Reply
I was on maintenance before. Haven't been for years. Can a methadone clinic choose to honor blood work instead of supervised urine's if you cant pee in front of ppl for certain reasons? I'm afraid that methadone is all that's ever worked and my life's on the line because of this... Are their any petitions out there for sex abuse victims (?) cuz i felt like I was getting assaulted every time I use to go. I was on methadone for over 6yrs and never relapsed once; but now after weeks and months of withdrawal I relapsed. Please speak up.

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.

Doctors in Louisiana that prescribe methadone for chronic pain
321 Replies RSS
I have been taking 120 mg of methadone for approximately 5 years. My husbands job transferred us from Florida to Louisiana where I found a pretty good pain doc. He is now running scared and wants to take me off of methadone. Methadone has given me a good quality of life; I am able to work and be a productive member of society. My doctor is unwilling or unable to assist me in finding a new doctor who will continue my meds. Oh yeah, I have been the route of blocks and injections and gotten little if any relief. I'm tired of being branded a drug seeker-I have years of medical records that back up my claims and verify the dosages that I've been on-what drug seekers have this kind of back up? I am looking for a Louisiana doctor, but am willing to travel (within reason of course). Ple...

Methadone Filler causing allergy

I have a severe allergy that I have had for a year and a half now. I break out all over in the itchiest pimple like sores. They either have no liquid in them or sometimes a small amount of clear fluid. No puss. It has gotten worse over the past year and a half to where I now get huge hives and random swelling that is very painful. sometimes a foot or a hand but it's not like normal edema swelling, this is painful and a tighter swelling, definitely part of the reaction. I have no health insurance so after looking everywhere possible i cannot find anywhere to get the extremely expensive tests I would need to pin point the cause of this. my hands will get hot and then itch like crazy, my extremely thick hair has thinned to the point in the front where If something doesn't happen so...

why did methadone not show up in urine test
69 Replies RSS
I am very concerned. My Dr. started me on methadone at 5 mg 2x per day. 4 days later I had a urine test and the methadone did not show up. now my Dr. is concerned that I am not following treatment and I have been following it as I was told to. does anyone have have any idea as to why methadone would not show up in a pee test? ## go to google search bar and type in why doesn`t methadone show up in a urine test? you will get lots of answers, hope you find one that helps you. phenix134 ## some people detoxify faster than others, it depends on the amount of fluid intake, amount of work or exercise, some medications even have been ineffective, if DR. raises the issue again ask that he perform a observation test where he or his nurse actually watch you consume it an draw blood or urine, after...

Methadone for pain relief - does it work?
1 Reply RSS
Hello - this is my 1st post here. I'm posting to see if someone may have an answer to my dilemma. I have been in a state of chronic pain for many years due to a car accident I was involved in as a passenger a long time ago. I have run the gamut of pain meds. Vicodan - Percocet - morphine - demerol, etc. I have found that at the very start - these meds help a lot! Over time, your body's tolerance goes up & you just have to take more and more to get the same relief that you originally got from 1 pill. So for instance - you can go from 1 oxycontin a day to 25 a day eventually, & the 25 won't work as well as the 1 did at the start. I have experienced this with all of these narcotic pain relievers. I do have some brutal pain issues & I finally ended up on methadone. M...

methadone shows up in urine test
26 Replies RSS
what else would cause methadone toshow up in a urine test ## The only thing that would show up as Methadone is Methadone if they are testing for the specific drugs. Most standard urine tests do not, they just test for drug classes and concentrations, such as opiates, Benzodiazepines and Amphetamines. Are you currently taking some sort of opiate? There have been many posts recently about false positives on urine tests, so it makes me wonder if there is possibly a bad batch out there. ## they have to be testing for methadone specifically....otherwise it doesnt show up!! Only clinics and doctors with reasons test for methadone...probation or work drug tests will NOT test for methadone..it is a synthetic narcotic ## So if I seen pain Dr and am prescribed Norco 10 Mg but took a methadone and...

I was on methadone for 2 years at 60 mg. Stopped cold turkey, was in hell for 5 weeks. Please stay away from this devil. My opinion is it's the worst drug on the planet. Also my dad was slowly dying from cancer during my wd. I hate that drug! ## Lbreezy, You actually went cold turkey from 60 mg everyday to zero with nothing to assist in your Withdrawl process?? It's hard to believe you didn't need to be hospitalized that's a very serious Withdrawl, I'm sure your still experiencing protracted withdrawals this condition can last up to 6 months or more... Was this a clinic you were dosing at?? ## I feel your pain methadone is what the devil made. I quit cold turkey. I was at 45mg a day i went down to 26mg and i quit cold turkey day 5 and 6 was the worst days for me. Im ...
