methadone withdrawls

I am I Jessup and would like to know the best over the counter to help with my methadone withdrawals and pain. Pls I have little money no insurance and hurt like never before. I'm determined to be 100 clean ## I hate to tell you this but nothing will stop your withdrawls from methadone. The only thing that may help you is ibuprofen for the fevers. I went to a physicians assistant who prescribed me gabapentin (which i am alergic to)and clonidine which only lowers your blood pressure. I am on 18 days without methadone 80mgs a day or more depending on the day and the withdrawls the first week and a half are pure hell!.... I'm feeling better in some ways but still feel paralyzed with fear whenever I have to go somewhere. Work has been extremely difficult. Nobody to take care of me f...

Can I Take Methadone with klonopin
6 Replies RSS
Is it safe to mix the prescribed amount of methadone with the prescribed amount of klonopin ??? ## They can be used together, but it has to be done very cautiously, because mixing a Benzodiazepine with the Opioid may cause severe hypotension, respiratory depression and vasodilation. Learn more Methadone details here. Learn more Klonopin details here. Have they both been prescribed by the same doctor, so they are aware you are taking them both? ## I am on 150 milligrams of methadone and also on two milligrams per day of klonopin it seems to work well for me however it does cuz some drowsiness so yes they can be taken together just be careful because they are both pretty powerful and at first will create a buzz ## my doctor stopped my klonopin after 2 years. i used 4 1 mg pills per day. h...

I am 4 months pregnant and just started taking Methadone for pain after being hooked on oxycodone and oxycontin sense before pregnancy.
16 Replies RSS
I just started taking methadone a couple days ago for pain because I was in a pain clinic taking Oxycodone (perks) and Oxycontin (extended release perks) both at 10mg 3x a day but I would take more than prescribed because it didnt help my pain at that amount alone. Then I found out i am pregnant and those meds are category B in the FDA database so its safer to take them while pregnant but I missed one appointment at the pain center that i didnt even know about they made an appointment for me without seeing if i could make it and didnt notify me prior to the appointment day so of course i missed it. Then they kicked me out and said i refused a pill count that i didnt even know i had i mean C'MON thats stupid. but anyway before that happened my doctor put me on this Butrans patch 5 mi...

1 Reply RSS
I need to know if I can take levoquin 500mg (1 per day ×7 days) when I am taking methadone 100mg per day? ## No, the FDA generally warns that they should not be taken together, due to the risk of experiencing a dangerous heart rhythm, that has the potential to be life-threatening.

Methadone detox - waiting to take suboxone
26 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...
