Methadone Overview

Methadone, sold under the brand names 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...

Believe I may have received the wrong tablets by pharmasist as methadone 5mg tablets
2 Replies RSS
I have terminal cancer and have been taking a medication for over 1 year. Now the medication appearence has changed and it does not seem to be working. the new tablets are small white tablets with 54 over 210 on one-side and a line across the other. Any assistance you could provide would be greatly appreciated. ## I am so sorry to hear that; my parents and my best friend all succumbed to cancer and I had a brush with it but they got it all out with surgery for now. I'm so sorry this is happening to you; if you posted this in 2009, one of two things has happened by now: you may have experienced a remission (if so, that would be wonderful) or you may have passed away. But to this poster and to EVERYONE: any time you need to identify an unknown pill, you can also check with the FDA or ...

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...

Looking For Pain Management In The Medford Grants Pass Oregon Area

Need a good dr in the medford grants pass oregon area. ## Hi Gia, In regards to finding a pain doctor, I have listed below a couple websites specific to locating pain management doctors in a given area. All you have to do is input your city or zip code for narrowed results: {link removed because site no longer exists} You can give this other page a try too if you come up with different results for some reason or another: wellness.com/find/pain%20management%20specialist Many of the results you find (in one or both of the links above) also list a phone number for that specific doctor; I'd suggest calling up a number of them to see if they prescribe the type of medication you are seeking to manage your pain. You may also have to ask if they are accepting new patients, as some aren'...

Liquid METHADONE TO GO ON HOLIDAY
14 Replies RSS
i have booked a family holiday for two weeks in lanzarote and have been told today that im not allowed to take my 150mg daily does with me because the doctor thinks i should go to detox first are they allowed to do this ## Your doctor isn't obligated to treat you or provide you with any medications, whatsoever, so yes, they certainly can. The only time any doctor is obligated to treat you is if you're in life threatening danger. Providing you with a medication such as this is not something they have to do. Learn more Methadone details here. And, if they did provide you with enough doses for a 2 week travel period, he could be held responsible if something untoward were to happen. I'm sorry, I realize it creates complications for you, but that's just the way it works. How...

I have been prescribed methadone for two years. Can I take A

Can you take adepx with methadone? Does the blockers in methadone block the effects of Adepx ??? ## Methadone is simply Methadone, there are no blockers, or anything else in it. It is an opiate that is commonly used to treat drug addiction and severe pain, so the FDA warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and constipation. Adipex contains the active ingredient Phentermine, it is used to aid in weight loss and you should not take it, without your doctor's approval. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, insomnia and anorexia. Has it been prescribed for you?

195 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...
