Category: Opioid Dependence



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. Because it is an acyclic analog of morphine or heroin, methadone acts on the same opioid receptors as these drugs, and...

Doctors in Louisiana that prescribe methadone for chronic pain
I have been taking 120 mg of methadone for approximately 5 years. My husbands job transferred us from Florida to Louisiana where I found a pretty good pain doc. He is now running scared and wants to take me off of methadone. Methadone has given me a good quality of life; I am able to work and be a productive member of society. My doctor is unwilling or unable to assist me in finding a new doctor who will continue my meds. Oh yeah, I have been the route of blocks and injections and gotten little if any relief. I'm tired of being branded a drug seeker-I have years of medical records that back up my claims and verify the dosages that I've been on-what drug seekers have this kind of back up? I am looking for a Louisiana doctor, but am willing to travel (within reason of course). Ple...

pain dr north georgia
Hi. I have been going through a war now for years trying to manage my pain from my ruptured and bulging disk in my lower back. For years I just dealt with the pain. But about three years ago I was forced into a point that I had to work so I started going to a pain clinic in TN and after a year I moved to Florida for my husband to get treatment for cancer. When I moved I had enough of my meds for the month but I couldn't find a doctor to see me in time and ran out. I started with withdrawls and every doctor I saw down there didn't believe I was in pain. So I had no choice but to go to methadone for the withdrawls. Now two years later I'm trying to get off it and get back to a pain clinic. I've been going through withdrawal for 3 weeks and recently started getting migraine...

getting methadone and soma
Needing a dependable faster easier way to get my methadone and soma any helpful ideas welcomed ## Good luck with that one. I can't get a Tylenol never mind anything that might work. I have no choice but to suffer. That sucks when there is something that's will help but can't get a Dr to help. They always look at me like I want a million bucks. I just want relief. I don't care what it is. Sad , that's why that make pain meds. People that need them for pain can't get them but t Dr.s will give them to young adults with no prob. I have multiple back shoulders and leg issues and I get Motrin. What a joke. I cry in pain every day. I'm in RI and every Dr sucks here.!! ## Well if there is anyone out there that has a way to get soma and methadone xanax let me known ca...

If you do go on Methadone, plan on being on it for many years or life. Suboxone is the best way to go. Monthly supply. Methadone, you have to go every day and earn take homes. I'm lucky to be alive because of Methadone. Very addicting, can't even go 1 day without it. Its just a money making legal way to sell hard core narcotics. Good luck whatever you choose. Read up real closely before choosing Me...

Methadone Clinic that accepts medicaid for payment
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 ...
