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...

Methadone in Mexico-Legal there?
Please help!!!Can I get methadone in Mexico with a canadian script? Anyone know? ## From my research, it appears that Methadone is illegal in Mexico. They only allow it to be used in certain extreme cases, where no other pain relief works, for AIDs patients. If you are going, you may be better served, if you are on it, to take enough of a supply with you to last for the duration of your trip. ## I'm not sure if was ILLEGAL.. but now it isn't and there are even methadone clinics in mexico... you just need a doctors letter... and don't have anything on it about drug addiction or anything about being an 'addict' past present of future... just keep it about pain managment and that if you don't take it you will get dealthy sick... so you MUST have it for daily you. yo...

methadone and garcinia cambogia
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...

paiin management dr in milton or pensacola florida
Can anyone tell me of a good doctor in pensacola fl or milton fl that can write methadone and narcos thats the only thing that helps my pain. ## Hello, Doug! How are you? Any licensed physician can prescribe them, but there are no guarantees they will do so. The only thing you can really do is see PM doctor, make sure they receive a copy of your most current medical records and then explore your treatment options with them, at your appointment. Asking for such medications ahead of time, before you're actually a patient, will most likely be viewed as drug seeking behavior and most doctors won't even let you get in the door. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and con...

pain management doctors ga
Are there any doctors in or near the Columbus, Georgia area that prescribe Methadone & Oxycodone for pain management from injuries and surgery from auto accident over 6 years ago? ## Hello, Ann! How are you? I'm sorry that you're in pain. If you require such medications on a long-term ongoing basis, due to the regulations that were put in place last year, you'll need to see a pain management specialist. However, I cannot speak as to whether or not they will necessarily prescribe these or any medications, since that is entirely up to the doctor. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Do you currently have a PCP that could refer you to someone? ...

I'm sorry that you're in pain. However, there is no listing of doctors according to what they will or will not prescribe that I can refer to for you. Due to the regulations that were put in place last year, if you require such a medication on a long-term ongoing basis, you'll need to see a pain management specialist. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. However, due to its highly addictive nature, most are going to be very reluctant to prescribe Methadone. Do you currentl...
