Variances in the composition of Methadone may be affecting drug tests
7 Replies RSS
I had been on 130 mg of methadone and nothing else for several yrs for neuropathic pain, and it helped so much! Anyway one month I picked up my refill... I started not sleeping and dropping weight like crazy. My heart was skipping and jumping off and on all day. Also my kidneys started aching. But it wasn't everyday. I did go see my reg. family dr and told him. They ran blood tests. Nothing. That dr insisted it was my back. Whatever. I knew it wasn't. I went in for my monthly refill again, I still hasn't realized it was my last refill of methadone that was affecting me. When my dr got the UA back, it tested positive for EVERYTHING! Methamphetamine, amphetamines, morphine, THC, PCP, buprenorphine and about 5 others. This tested for 13 different things. All positive. Thank god...

151 Replies RSS
I would like to fill my methadone prescription from home. ## Methadone is a narcotic, a controlled substance, so it is ONLY obtainable, legally in the US by prescription and in this case, even with a prescription, many online pharmacies aren't going to carry it or ship it. Methadone is used to treat severe pain and drug addiction. Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Did you have any other questions? ## I need methadone ship to canada.I am hooked to pain killers and need meathadone to get rid of it please advice ## I take 10mgs of methadone 350 a month I heard you can get consults with drs on line if so how because I can not get out and around withou it I have cronic sever pain in my body I was on oxycotb 80h then p could not afford it any...

methadone and garcinia cambogia
93 Replies RSS
I have been on methadone for 10 years for fibro. I take 60-100 mgs a day. I have recently begun taking garcinia cambogia, green coffee bean and raspberry ketones for weight loss. Though they have been working, (I've lost 20 lbs) I've noticed about 1-2 hrs after taking them I start to withdraw. It doesn't matter if it's been 2 hrs or 10 hrs since my last methadone dose, my body acts like it's been 14+hrs as the anxiety clamps on like a vice and the nose turns into a faucet. Does anyone know if there is a withdrawal interaction or if this is just coincidence and I got a bad batch of methadone? ## I have noticed the same thing. Two times now, after taking this supplement for 4-7 days, I have come into a debilitating withdrawal. I was searching online to see if others ha...

If i take 130mg of methadone a day will a 60mg morphine sulfate help get me thru one day
41 Replies RSS
I go to a methadone program and have for about 4 years .Ive recently had the flu which causedme to vomit up my methadone (I get 5 take home bottles a week) tried taking another bottle and threw up again im feeling sick from not taking it so I took a 60mg morphine sulfate pill,will this help at all? ## It may help stave off the worst of the withdrawals you could experience, since it is also a narcotic. However, before doing so in the future, you really should call the doctor or clinic you are working with and get their advice, first. Taking another narcotic may not be approved and might get you kicked out of the Methadone program. How are you feeling now? ## Because of a heart problem my wife was taken off 150 mg per day immediately and it was replaced by morphine. Dr. said 20 mg morphin...

Hello Posters, I am a 60 year old man who has gone from Methadone being free to the point of having to pay $12 per day. I can no longer afford this. CAN ANYONE TELL ME ANYWHERE IN THE United States where there is a free Methadone Clinic or a clinic that is subsidized. I don't know what to do. Please try to help me. Thank you for any post or info you can give me. ## Unfortunately, I don't know of any completely free ones. There are some state run clinics that will do an income based treatment, so some people don't pay anything, while what others pay can vary depending on their income. However, if you do work or have some type of income, that's liable to be about $12 a day for daily treatments, anyway. Learn more Methadone details here. Do you have any type of insurance? #...

222 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 ...

I took 60 mgs of methadone sat morn at 8 am.. today is monday 4 pm , am I ok to take 4 mgs of suboxone today.?.. ## It really depends on how long you have been on the methadone and the dose you are at. If your only dose was 60mgs of done sat morning and you haven't take any done before or after that I say your good. If you take 60 everyday you may want to wait day or two more. better safe than sorry...and you will be sorry. ## I took about 15 mgs of methadone for 4 days then just 5 mgs this morning at 8:30am.. Am I safe to take 2 mgs of suboxone now only being 6 hrs? I feel sick with withdrawal symptoms now anyway.. ## Jdub, NO ABSOLUTELY NOT!!! Unless you want to endure precipitated withdrawal syndrome.

How long after taking suboxone can you take opiates
5 Replies RSS
People are asking these questions not to be told the answers off the label! I take subs, then have no problem taking any opiate!! I never had any problems! I don't know much about methadone but just swallowed one. I took about 3mg of sub this a.m with 600 mg of neurontin / gabapentin and about 4 hrs later I took the methadone and am planning on taking at least 80 mg of Roxy thru tonight. Yesterday I took 4mg of sub about 100mg of Roxy thru the night and felt amazing! Took sub this a.m NO PROBLEM. So all this u have to wait to take subs is something I don't personally believe. I take subs when I run out of Roxy or other opiates, to not get sick. ## Tell you what. Here's what you do. Stop taking your suboxone for 3 days, then administer your opiate of choose for a few days, an...

Doctors Willing To Prescribe Pain Medication in columbus ohio or springfield ohio
69 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.

Precipitated Withdrawal Help: Relasped

I stopped taking opiates in 2001...was on methadone until a year ago when I switched to subs... I've been on Subutex 2 months.... Well yesterday, for a reason i don't quite understand, I relapsed. I have been thru precipitated withdrawals and they TERRIFY ME.... MY QUESTION IS...HOW LONG UNTIL I CAN TAKE MY SUBUTEX AGAIN? I HAVE TO GO TO A MOTHER'S DAY TEA WITH MY SON TODAY (HE'S 5) AND I CAN'T RISK BEING IN PW/D.... PLLLEEEAAASE ANYONE? ## Just as when you first started it, you need to be in full withdrawal, before taking your Subutex, again. The FDA classifies this medication as an opiate that is most commonly used to treat drug addiction, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and co...

can ambian cause a false positive for methadone
5 Replies RSS
I take Ambian to help me fall asleep as well as Oxycodone for chronic pain (along with other prescribed medications for bipolar/manic depression (Pristiq), anxiety disorder (Ativan), Fybromialgia (Lyrica), migraines (Fioricet), and muscle relaxers (Soma and/or Zanaflex). Will any of these (or a combination of them) cause a false-positive for Methadone in a UA? I need a FAST answer!! Thanx! ## NO URINE Screening test, and/or EIA or IMMUNOASSAY test is 100%, there are some cross reactions, and many false positives and false negatives. That is why it is required to CONFIRM all positives by an alternative methodology, preferably LC/MS/MS. It is expensive to run, and most hospitals do NOT have the equipment or ability to confirm. Good luck. ## NO ## Dr John is there any 100% urine test? I ha...

Methadone Prescription REFILLS
5 Replies RSS
MY DOCTOR IN MAINE SAYS HE CAN NO LONGER PRESCRIBE METHADONE FOR PAIN ANYMORE BY LAW BECAUSE IT CAUSE ARISMA TO YOUR HEART. (IS THIS TRUE OR NOT) ## I have to admit that I can't find anything on this, but it is highly possible. For various reasons, many states on the east coast and into the mid-west have been making radical changes to their prescribing laws. Some of them restrict what general practitioners can and cannot prescribe, as well as how long they can prescribe something, how much they can prescribe each month and etc. Learn more Methadone details here. Since he is a licensed medical practitioner, I have to think that your doctor would know what he's talking about. What alternative treatments did he offer? ## I called wall greens here in Oregon They said a Doctor can pr...

MY HUSBAND HAS BLADDER CANCER AND WAS PRESCRIBED 20 MG OF METHADONE EVERY MORNING. HE WAS ALSO GIVEN MORPHIN SULFATE 60 MGS TWICE A DAY. HOW SHOULD THESE MEDICINES BE TAKEN. ## Debra, i dont know why his dr. prescribed both Methadone and Morphine. The Methadone is known to block or cancel out the effects of the Morphine. ## i take 30mg 6 times aday plus 135mg of methadone a day for stomach cancer pain is it safe what are the dangers ## First of all methadone is not a blocker. People mistake it for suboxone because they are both used in opiate withdraw treatment. They first made methadone in world war II...when China cut Germany off from poppy trade. Hitler had his science goons make somthing to substitute opiate pain killers and Bam methadone is born. First used as a pain killer for man...

doctors in virginia that help treat pain
3 Replies RSS
Plz, does anyone know any drs that prescribe Methadone for pain in Tappahannock or Richmond Va. area? ## Had spinal stenosis surgery, triple lactomactomy and when I came out was way worse. My surgeon said to go to their pain management and get an idea of what they came up with on file for any doctor to see or said to call them and they would help come up with a plan. They had me on methadone and oxycodone. My surgery was in 2009. I tried not to get on methadone. I was nervous. Turned out it worked very well but I'm now living in a state where everyone has a problem abusing or not needing and doctors writing them regardless. This had led to where you now can't get any help. If anyone knows of anyone in Virginia that will look at your records, your surgeon request and pain special...

My doctor prescribed me 10mg of celexa + 0.5 mg of klonopin both for anxiety, and I take 20 mg of methadone daily for chronic pain from a clinic. Will the three mixtures hurt me, especially the celexa and methadone together? ## Hello, Ashley! How are you? Taking the Celexa, with the Methadone increases the risk of developing a prolong QT heart interval, and that has the potential to be fatal, so such combinations are recommended avoided by the FDA and the NIH. They are also both listed as increasing sedation. What the prescribing doctor aware that you are taking Methadone? ## Didn't know I had to be so detailed...
