Methadone Overview

Methadone (also known as Symoron, Dolophine, Amidone, Methadose, Physeptone, Heptadon and many other names) is a synthetic opioid. It is used medically as an analgesic and a maintenance anti-addictive and reductive preparation for use by patients with opioid dependence. It was developed in Germany in 1937, mainly because Germany required a reliable internal source of opioids. It is an acyclic analog of morphine and heroin. Methadone acts on the same opioid receptors as these drugs, and has ma...

Methadone 10mg Asc 116
78 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. Are there any other questions or comments? ## Yeah, 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 lab...

find a doctor that prescribes methadone in Dallas ft worth area
6 Replies RSS
I need a dr in the dallas/ ft worth area that will prescribe methadone I tried Suboxone for 5 years no luck. Methadone has worked but I'm working as a CPA for a firm and the clinics are so difficult these days. Any help would be appreciative. Also if you didnt get it was for opiate treatment. ## HI, Ryan! Sorry about the problems that you're having. However, a general practitioner isn't allowed to prescribe Methadone for addiction. Under the current laws, it can only be administered for that in a clinical setting by those that are specially trained in its use for such. Learn more Methadone details here. I wish I had better news for you, but the laws leave no leeway for this. Why didn't the Suboxone work for you? ## There has to be a dr or better "clinical" Experi...

Private Doctor To Prescribe Methadone Instead Of Clinics In Fort Worth Tx
43 Replies RSS
I took Hydrocodone for pain for several years and became very dependent. I have been going to a Methadone Clinic now for 2 years and it saved my life. I have led a productive life since. I take care of my parents and they both are bedbound. It is getting so hard for me to go to the clinic daily. Does anyone know of a private doctor in Fort Worth Texas that subscribes Methadone? Thank you for your help ## Have you considered a possible switch to Suboxone? It has been very successfully used to enable people to become completely drug free, rather than staying dependent on something, as often happens with Methadone. Treatment with it is also often done with a take home prescription, rather than always having to go to a clinic for a daily dose. You can check for a doctor in your area at the ...

doctors who prescribe pain meds maine
2 Replies RSS
Hi there I was wondering if anyone knows of any doctors who prescribe pain meds in maine..please help me if I have alot of medical reasons for pain meds. Thank you for your time. ## Hello, Louise! How are you? I'm very sorry that you're in pain. Due to the new directives that were set forth by the FDA last year, you'll most likely need to see a pain management specialist. Do you currently have a PCP that could refer you to someone? If so, that might be the quickest and easiest way to find the help you need. Can anyone recommend a good doctor in that area? ## I don't know how bad your pain is but if it is that terrible and unbearable I would recommend a methadone clinic. Its easy,fast and cheap. I had two broken femurs and medal rods, constant pain, after a few years my d...

PLEASE help me with methadone questions & withdrawl
Post a Reply
I have been on methadone for 9 months... I was up to 80 mg but have managed to get down to 20 mg over the past 5 months or so. I am wanting to get off it all together but I am so scared because I don't want to feel miserable from the wd. Since I have been on it less than a year, will the wd still be horrible? Should I go from the methadone to suboxone to make it any easier or just keep going down on the methadone? How long will the wd's last once I am off everything? I go to the clinic so I am not doing it on my own, it is medically supervised. Can anyone PLEASE help me with some good advice??

fill methadone prescription in fl
1 Reply RSS
It's not just methadone it's all narcotics. Florida won't fill any narcotic. Believe me we've tried. We next day air the script to our family in minneapolis, they go to our pharmacy for us, fill and ship back to us. It's a pain but it works. ## @Mpls, Wow, I think its pretty ridiculous what extent patients have to go through in order to be able to have their legal medication filled, as if it's some sort of secret substance that no one can speak of in the State of Florida. And even across the country in California, my dad was just telling me the other night how he had to drive to several different cities in Southern California (which is very spread out) just to get a weak 5/325mg Norco script filled, because everyone was "allegedly" out of stock. With the ...

private methadone doctor in dallas county
2 Replies RSS
I had a serious car accident a few years back. The hospital put me on methadone. I'm having to go to a clinic daily and most everyone there takes methadone for addiction issues. I really would live to see a private doctor that can help with my pain med and other physical issues due to the car accident I had in Houston. I'm back home in Dallas Tx. Please help if you have some info. Thanks! ## Hello, Robin! How are you? Unfortunately, with the clinic in your records, no regular doctor is going to be able to prescribe it for you. I know you weren't going for an addiction issue, but that's basically what it looks like and it's illegal for a regular doctor to treat for that. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effec...
