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 detoxification 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 i...

Methadone detox - waiting to take suboxone
21 Replies RSS
Okay, so I've gone through a lot on this site and nothing is really helping me with my question. I started taking methadone almost two years ago. I got up to 70mgs and stabilized for awhile then my counselor and I decided with all the positive changes I've made that tapering down would be a good option for me. I have been tapering very slow since last May "2016". By January I got to 30mgs of methadone and once I got to 26mgs I asked to be taken back up to 30mgs. I stayed on 30mgs for another month and then realized I was moving to Florida very soon. Problem is I have the state insurance and Florida programs will not accept the insurance I currently have. So, my methadone dr put me on a rapid detox which was 2mg a day. My last does was 16mgs on Saturday April 8, 2017. I w...

Methadone Clinic that accepts medicaid for payment
63 Replies RSS
live in seminole county, Florida. I am on medicaid and want to know if there is a clinic or doctor that will accept medicaid for methadone maintenance. ## I really wish I could help, but I haven't been able to find any that are directly listed in that area, however, I will admit, I am not familiar with Florida, so there could be some places that I am missing. Have you tried asking your doctor or perhaps calling the Medicaid office to see if they have a place they can recommend? Another good place to ask would be your local hospitals, especially the social workers, they usually have listings of such places for those in need that may have trouble finding them. ## I live in Bradenton-Sarasota & I go to the PAR clinic in Bradenton. It's on US41 in a plaza where Livingston's ...

kentucky clinics that accepts medicaid for methadone
3 Replies RSS
I need to know if medicaid will pay for my methadone treatment in ky? ## It won't where I live.medicaid hasn't been expanded here but even if you could get it the insurance won't cover mmt.only detox. ## @Margie, With seemingly ever-changing laws surrounding the dispensing and coverage of controlled substances, I think your best bet would probably be to contact a methadone clinic directly for more specific details on their protocol. It may be that you'd have to contact a number of different clinics and compare feedback. I'd also encourage you to look into Kentucky's medicaid Drug Formulary (or Preferred Drug List) to for up to date information on what their medicaid covers; as coverage seems to vary from state to state. ## I live in Harrodsburg ky.. I need to fin...

Methadone 10mg Asc 116
212 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 ...

Methadone 54/142 Tablet Efficacy
12 Replies RSS
I'm used to taking 10 mg of methadone with an M on it. Now I've been given a round white pill with 54/142 ASC. I am sleepy, nauseous, and have no energy. I've never felt this way before, in fact the M's give me energy. Why is this happening? ## I imagine you're getting a generic version.. How do they get away with this? Do the pharmacies benefit by automatically changing this over possibly making more money with a generic? I've experienced this with other drugs and since there is no way of knowing if the generic version is up to the standard of the original, who knows if you're getting the maximum benifit that you're meant to get? ## I can tell you without a doubt that they are generic. I get the same pills but with different results. After they quit givi...
