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.

how can i get a prescription for methadone
1 Reply RSS
I'm hooked on opiates and want to stop. I've heard that methadone can help, Is this true? How does the program work? ## Hello, Victoria! How are you? Methadone can help, but it may not be an ideal solution. Most people that use Methadone to treat addiction end up requiring a lifelong maintenance dose of it and you have to go to a clinic daily to receive your dose, though after awhile, you may earn the right to have 2 weeks of take home doses. Another option, however, would be Suboxone, which has allowed many people to become completely drug free, it also helps prevent the abuse of other opiates, while someone is being treated with it. In some cases, your first dose is supervised by the doctor or your pharmacist, but usually after that, you get a month's prescription and retu...

51 Replies RSS
I have a unique situation. I am a recovering addict with severe chronic pain. I have really bad scoliosis that's in my neck and back and been in several really bad car wrecks. Lets just say I'm a tree magnet when riding with other people. I have been on suboxone and subutex for the last 2 years. Before then I was going to the methadone clinic on and off for a few years but I couldn't pay for it anymore so I had to stop going. And before and during that I was going to the pain clinic for my back and neck pain. I was prescribed 120 10mg oxycodone and 120 60mg Morphine. Before all that I was Doing like 6 to 10 80mg OxyContin and 6 to 10 200mg morphine a day off the street from age 16-24. This was before I got insurance and found out I had scoliosis at the age of 24 and now abou...

I need a dr in the dallas/ ft worth area that will prescribe methadone I tried Suboxone for 5 years no luck. Methadone has worked but I'm working as a CPA for a firm and the clinics are so difficult these days. Any help would be appreciative. Also if you didnt get it was for opiate treatment. ## HI, Ryan! Sorry about the problems that you're having. However, a general practitioner isn't allowed to prescribe Methadone for addiction. Under the current laws, it can only be administered for that in a clinical setting by those that are specially trained in its use for such. Learn more Methadone details here. I wish I had better news for you, but the laws leave no leeway for this. Why didn't the Suboxone work for you? ## There has to be a dr or better "clinical" Experi...

Which clinics are more relaxed with take homes
Post a Reply
I started treatment on methadone 1 year ago and it has been the best thing that has ever happened to me. I have my life back. I am have been to clinics in CA, NC, and now south carolina. Reno Nevada was pretty lax with take homes but now after transferring to sc with the same company I thought by transfering to same clinic in a different state I would keep take homes. Its the most important thing in my life to get take homes. I absolutely hate going in every day to dose. I am looking for any coastal city (I am a surfboard shape) that has a good clinic with relaxed take home approvals. I'm clean almost always but consume cannabis sometimes cause no one will prescribed me my kpins while im on methadone. California didn't even test for cannabis, but I had no take homes cause that...

finding a dr on long Island that will prescribe methadone
Post a Reply
Hi my name is Lisa. I posted a question a few months ago and I stumbled upon some answers and now I can't find the link. I live on long Island and have been prescribed methadone for over 8 years from my pcp but due to all the drs getting in trouble he will no longer let the pa write it for me. It's for pain and I'm having a terrible time trying to find a dr to write it. I have all my records so that's not a problem. If there is anyone out there that can help me I would greatly appreciate it.

I see so many people with the same fears I have had in the past and still do. I am a P.A. And also a chronic pain sufferer. I have been on meds for 8 years and have the hardest times getting legal prescriptions filled. I actually derided twice myself with proper use of needed meds with no side effects. The only problem I had was extreme pain and ended up in the hospital after I got off meds due to NSAID use and other problems to the point where I was told to go back on opiates. I can help with withdrawal issues. I know little things that will have u off opiates in 4 days, but then u what about the pain u were taking opioda for in the first place? None the less, no one should suffer. I have a great Pain Management doctor in Brooklyn. I know of a great doctor that will prescribe methadone...

methadone and garcinia cambogia
37 Replies RSS
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...
