Methadone Overview

Methadone, sold under the brand name Dolophine, among others, is an opioid used to treat pain and as maintenance therapy or to help with tapering in people with opioid dependence.[3] Detoxification using methadone can either be done relatively rapidly in less than a month or gradually over as long as six months. While a single dose has a rapid effect, maximum effect can take five days of use. The effects last about six hours after a single dose and a day and a half after long-term use in peop...

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...

FREE OR LOW COST METHADONE CLINIC
6 Replies RSS
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 ...

How long after taking methadone can you take suboxone?
4 Replies RSS
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. You must wait at least 72 to 96 hours MINIMUM to safely transition to sub. ## Y...

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
4 Replies RSS
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...
