I ran out of my methadone and took hydrocodone for 7 days , just started it at 30 mg a day a couple of months ago, but worried it is out of my system when I took my urine test before I left the doctor's, if he didn't see it in my urine I'm afraid he won't prescribe it next time I go in. Surely he could tell immediately before he wrote me a script ? Do you think he has to stop giving me the scripts since he finds it gone in my urine?

Chronic pain for 16yrs due to broken neck and organic disease of pancreas. Only pain med that ever helped was n is methadone. Was on 120mg twice a day. Lowered it to 120mg once a day. Now with new doc that doesn't prescribe methadone. I have left over n have been taking on and off for quite some time. Have upcoming drug test in 13days. Taking only 80mg every other day, how long will it take to be able to pass urine drug screen? I'm hypopit n on synthroid which I know I can speed process my body metabolizes plus I'm very active and in shape. Just have some bad days where I am in bed! Need to pass drug screen... Any suggestions or meds I can take to speed up the process? Can get hands on most( besides methadone prescribed since change of dr. ;( ) help please. Lol. Seriously!

I have been told by my Doctor that methadone can show up as long as a month after you took it last. He said this especially applies to people who are on or have been on methadone maintenance for several months to a year or longer.

I have been on MMT for 8 years...methadone is VERY hard to get off of. Mostly because its has a long half life that can be around 36-55 hours (give or take), which means if you took 60mg of methadone, after about 36 hours half of it is still in your system. Withdrawal symptoms can last from anywhere to 10 days to 3 months. Because everyone is different its hard to say how long they will last for you. The only advice I can give you is taper as slow as you possibly can. Once you get down to 10mg, try not to just stop. Maybe you can take 10mg every other day until you think you are ready to finally rid yourself of it. I wish you the BEST OF LUCK and STAY STRONG!!! Try to be around good friends or family so you're not along to think about certain things...
You can do it!!!!

Depends on how much u took. Methadone has a long half life. In my personal opinion, if it was more than 20mgs you might fail

im here to help clear the air with what I know. I used to do heavy doses of methadone and eventually decided it was time to stop, I was taking methadone every day for almost 3 years. all be it, very very low doses. I would call myself a functioning addict, if there is one. I would have 60 pills on me, but limit myself to one 10mg pill per morning when I got up, just as a booster to feel "normal". Ive worked full time for 15 years, but recently decided I would make a carreer change. Knowing they drug test I new I had to bite the bullet and stop. Im married with kids. I have read so much crap on the net about how long this stuff stays in your system. I was so confussed, I called my best friend, who is a doctor, and has been my childhood best friend, He was even my best man in my wedding. Anyway, back to the point. He told me the half life does very greatly from person to person, with a half life of 72 to 105 hours, but as little as 24-48 hours depending on how active you are. I myself am simi active, but could definalty stand to be more active, but I am not overweight. My friend told me with my height and weight he figured I would be 48 to 72 hour half life at worst. He also said because of the length of time I had told him I had been taking them, he said in general most people will take 5 half lifes to clear their system. based off of what he felt about me physically he said that day 12 I should be find to piss clean, but day 15 would be a defiant unless I had other things going on medically that I didn't know about. Anyway I took a home test kit on day 8, needless to say it came up hot. I was crushed, I hoped against hope that it would be clean. This morning day 12, my second urination of the day (never take a UA on your first urination of the day, any toxin in your body is gonna be in that urine for sure), I was excited to stay, he was right. Day 12 was clean. I am still gonna take two more before I go in for an official UA, but if you have a good job, and they do UA, just realize your playing Russian rullette with this stuff. Its expensive and to think I have done it this long just to feel normal. It hasn't been an easy past 12 days, but it will get better. Trust me, stay away from this crap, its not worth it. Oh to post some facts on me. I am 5'10" I was 205lbs, dropped 10 pounds already from getting off this s*** because what it does to your liver, every stays in your system and you balloon up. Also I ride the bikes at the gym 3 times a week for a half hour too fourty five minutes, and I play with my kids. Nothing overly crazy, but a little. Best type I can give, drink lots of water, take garlic pills (get them at walmart) and bottle of jagger. My best friend the doctor said the garlic pills will detox your liver, the water will detox your kidneys (those are the two major player organs in this fiasco). Also methodone stops your liver from secreting an enzyme it needs to break down the methadone, which is what makes it last longer in your system. Alchohol on the other hand makes your liver create the enzyme needed to break down the methadone and get it out faster. I didn't start drinking until day 10 so it could be a coincidence, just sharing what the doctor told me. I hope this helps, but above all, just done do this crap, its not worth the heart ache

@baby doll
You MIGHT be ok. Methadone is stored in your fat cells so it stays in system a lot longer than other opiates. If you have a fast metabolism, there's a chance you could be ok.

I've been on Methadone almost 2 years now. I want if it so bad I was talking 130mg dropped my self down to 60mg just over night and felt ok actually. Then One day I was so feed up with my clinic I said I'm done this is costing me more then my pill habit did. I did ok the first 4 days, I was tired and had no energy at all, but I wasn't sick or withdrawing like ppl said. To me at that point pills were so much harder to get off. Then day 5 came and it was like I got hit by a bus!! I was in so much pain it wasn't funny. I have a bad back and it was like someone Had taken a hammer and beating me wih in nonstop the pain just got worse and worse. Now the withdraw pain was there cuz I had the achy knees and elbows,and sneezing nonstop. I also texted positive on after taking nothing for 6 days it showed up on a mouth shop and urine to. I ended up getting back on the methadone been on 30mg a day for 2 months. I want off it so bad and I have to be off it before the 28th of Jan. cuz I have blood work to do and it can't e in my system. How long will it take to be out of my blood?? Also any suggestions on what is the best way to stop so u don't withdraw as hard or bad?? Thanks!!!

Same with me. I took a fluid pill for my blood pressure and tested clean. But my pain dr is just a glorified drug dealer so I got my meds anyway.
