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 can either occur 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. Methadone is taken ...

methadone and vyvanse
1 Reply RSS
I have taken opiates lately, and as an addict it is hard not to go for whatever you can get your hands on to make the withdrawals go away. I had a setback and took 150 mg vyvanse, and of course got the energy I was wanting, but now I can not get to sleep. When I lay down I am wide awake, which I'm assuming is from the vyvanse, but I can feel my withdrawal symptoms from the opiates. I have 10 mg of methadone to help me but I'm afraid to take it with the vyvanse. Can I take them together? Will it take away my withdrawal symptoms will either one cancel the other out? With the vyvanse feeling go away? ## I am taking 100mg of methadone and 70 MG of Vyvanse will taking the two together work like they are suppose to you get the relaxed feeling from the methadone but also be a little mo...

Ive been goin to a methadone clinic thats a 180mile round trip and currently dont have a car or a way 2 get their so ive been gettin very sick from not having my meds is their any dr.s closer to bedford indiana that i could see on a monthly arrangement ive tried suboxin and it doesnt work for me! ## Hello, Jason! How are you doing? I'm very sorry about the situation you've found yourself in. However, this is not possible. Under current laws for Methadone treatment, regular doctors aren't allowed to prescribe it for addiction or maintenance. That can only be done in a clinical setting by those that have been specially trained in its use for such. Learn more Methadone details here. The best suggestion I can make is that if you're suffering from severe withdrawal, you shoul...

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. prescibed both Methadone and Morphine.The Meth. 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 many years...

methadone withdrawals Suboxone
Post a Reply
Hi there, this is for the people who are on methadone / or Suboxone. I've been on methadone for an opiate addiction, for a year now. My clean date is feb 2, 2015. At first, methadone was the best thing that had ever happened to me. I finally felt normal, and thought I was ready to get my life back on track. Well.. What a lie that was. I was at 75 mlgs of methadone from February 2015-August 2015, then started tapering off at 5 mlgs a week. I have a rapid metabolizer, so methadone never lasted longer than 10 hours in my system. Now I'm at 30 mlgs and I'm living in hell! I'm in constant withdrawal, body aches, sweating, hot /cold, emotional, aggressive... Etc. All I want is to feel normal again, but don't want to be tied on a leash to the methadone anymore! People say t...

Chronic pain Meds combination
Post a Reply
On oxycodone-acetaminophen 10/325 4 times day. It was also combined with Fentanyl 100 every 72 hrs. I asked to be taken off Fentanyl as it's very expensive. My Dr prescribed then Methadone HCL 10 mg 2 tabs every 8 hrs. This combination doesn't work as well. What's my other choice?

I am addicted to strong pain meds and I am tired of having to come of of them the withdrawal is awful I went to a urgent care doc and was prescribed simboxon I take anxiety meds to but he wants me to stop I really need the anxiety meds but he wants me off them how do I get him to change it from simboxon to methadone so I can take my anxietymeds ## Legally, he can't. To get Methadone for addiction treatment in the U.S. requires that you go to an actual Methadone treating clinic, private doctors aren't allowed to prescribe it for addiction treatment. What anxiety medication do you take? Did he say why he wants you to stop taking it? ## Valium and in sc he is licensed to prescribe and treat me sumboxone is like methadone it us prescribed the same as methadone ## how about for neuro...
