how to safely wean off 280 mg daily of methadone
3 Replies RSS
My regular doctor left the clinic I have been at since 2010. New doctor at same clinic wants to wean me off my daily 280mg of methadone in just 4 weeks time. Have been on this dose for 25+ years... Mayo clinic, and my original doctor from Hawaii and clearance from two cardiologist have said no reason to stop at this point and no risk. Mistake was to not check this new doctor out first who I have since discovered is notorious for pulling this on patients for no reason. This happened conveniently for this doctor on a Friday..... can't even try to see another doctor until Monday...will also contact a health attorney.... ## Unfortunately, a health attorney will not likely do much good. No doctor is obligated to prescribe you anything, or treat you, at all, unless you're in life thre...

Methadone NO NO NO!!!!!

Methadone is the worst drug and most wicked drug in this entire world. They give it to people like me with pill problems and then you can never get off the stuff. I made the worst mistake of my life going into a Methadone program. The people at these palces pretend like they are there for you but they are not. They are there to keep you on this drug that rots away at your mind and body, and they do it well. They want your money. Do you know how cheap liquid methadone is? They milk off your addiction and act like they are doing something good for people like me. I HATE Methadone. I hate what it's doing to me and I HATE that I came in this place for a pill addiction four years ago, at 22, told I had one year and I would be weened off and here I am. I fight with these people all the ti...

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.

can you be approved for weight loss surgery while being prescribed methadone opiate addiction
9 Replies RSS
I am being prescribed methadone for opiate addiction been of all other drugs for 4 years I'm in the process of trying to have weight loss surgery and trying to find out if they will let me have it done since I'm on methadone? ## Hello, Brandy! How are you? Have you talked to the doctor or clinic that would be doing the surgery? There is a chance that you may not be able to, since if you're planning something like stomach banding, it can affect how some medications are absorbed. ## It puts you at greater risks for complications with anesthesia. For elective surgery it is a risk most drs would rather not take. Talk to your surgeon. ## I am having Gastic Sleeve surgery and have been on 110 mg of Methadone for 10 months. My surgeon has been wonderful. All is OK with anethesia an...

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? ## Yes , New York pain management in west babylon , babylon and Bayshore . They prescribed it to me for approx 8 years then had to s...

If you do go on Methadone, plan on being on it for many years or life. Suboxone is the best way to go. Monthly supply. Methadone, you have to go every day and earn take homes.

I'm on 35mg of methadone at a clinic, I was on 175mg and got down to 10mg and it was terrible!! I went very slow, but I went back up. Does anyone have any advice on how to get off this crap?? I have been on it for 3 1/2 years and I want to get off so bad but I just can't even think about withdrawal. So please any advice or success stories would be great! Thanks so much. ## Pour all your carries into a non clear container and start only taking a sip when you start to find your not feeling well, and only a lil sip. Wait half hour to one hour and if you still feel like s*** take another sip and i mean small sips. You would be suprized how little you really need to not feel sick, way less than you get ...in fact if you need to take less but your dose is higher than it should be you ...

what could cause a positive test for methadone
63 Replies RSS
a random drug test yielded a positive test for methadone. If you are not taking methadone, how could that be? ## I am not taking methadone however a drug test for a job today showed positive. I do take several medications and take stuff (legal) like nyquil etc all the time what could have made me test positive ?? ## Methadone is a synthetic opiate and it is possible that on a test that isn't done by a certified lab, other substances could cause you to show a false positive for it, including other synthetic or semi-synthetic opiates. Few employers are required to use a certified lab and most of the regular, inexpensive labs do have an error rate that ranges fro 4 to 50%. Sharron, in your case, it could have been the NyQuil, as it has been known to cause a false positive for Methadone...

Are Doctors beginning to NOT prescribe methadone anymore for chronic pain?
46 Replies RSS
I am 56 years old and am disabled due to a work-related injury therefore I am rich by no means! I have heard that they are considering taking methadone off the market due to too many overdose issues, plus people on it, get a prescription filled and sell it for profit making it even harder for folks like me who take my meds honestly as prescribed. If Methadone is removed from the market, what am I supposed to do? I already know I can not go off this stuff cold turkey and am scared. Does anyone know any doctors in the Warner Robins-Macon, GA area that prescribe Methadone ILLEGITIMATELY? I am not looking to sell meds, I just want to be sure I will not be in pain. I've been on Methadone since November 2008 and so far it works fine for me. I just neeed a backup plan just in case that doe...

Doctors in Louisiana that prescribe methadone for chronic pain
306 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...

My wife has panic attacks, and with some financial stress she is really having a breakdown. I've heard horror stories about benzo's and methadone so I want to hear from someone that takes them with methadone to know how safe it is. She takes 65 mil methadone daily, liquid. Anyone? ## I have been on methadone for 2 yrs now and I also take a benzo to treat sever anxiety. I am also on the patient advisory board at the methadone clinic I attend and have 6 take homes, meaning I only go to the clinic once a wk and take the rest at my home due to following the rules and being clean from all drugs, unless I am prescribed. It can be safe to take methadone and a benzo, but only if the doctor prescribing the benzo knows you're on methadone. The part that needs to be watched is to make ...

How Long Does Methadone Show Up In A Oral Swab Drug Test
44 Replies RSS
I will be going for a job interview at some point next week, more than likely it will be early in the week ( in about 3 days) today i took 4 10mg methadone pills. It will be a saliva test that i have to take, how long will the drug be detectable in a saliva test? ## Hi Serenity, Methadone can be detected in your saliva for up to 1-10 business days. Just joking about the 'business' days part. LOL! Although in 3 days time, it's still questionable as to whether or not the drug will be detected; but if you have a prescription for Methadone, then you should be fine just presenting the script to whom ever is testing your saliva, so you're not held accountable for a positive result. I hope this helps and wish you good luck on your test! ## No, no, no....methadone can not be det...

Methadone in Mexico-Legal there?
12 Replies RSS
Please help!!! Can I get methadone in Mexico with a canadian script? Anyone know? ## From my research, it appears that Methadone is illegal in Mexico. They only allow it to be used in certain extreme cases, where no other pain relief works, for AIDs patients. If you are going, you may be better served, if you are on it, to take enough of a supply with you to last for the duration of your trip. ## I'm not sure if was ILLEGAL.. but now it isn't and there are even methadone clinics in mexico... you just need a doctors letter... and don't have anything on it about drug addiction or anything about being an 'addict' past present of future... just keep it about pain managment and that if you don't take it you will get dealthy sick... so you MUST have it for daily you. y...

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...
