To Get Off Of Meth
What do you need to take to get off meth. ## According to my research, because the damage done by meth addiction happens in many areas, treatment is broad and includes immediate detox and subsequent care. The emotion, physical, and social problems meth causes all have to be addressed before sobriety can be maintained. "Meth addiction can be treated. Although acute withdrawal can be completed in a week without the drug, long term withdrawal symptoms will persist. Medical treatment can help with depression and coping skills. The risk for addicts is that they will think one round of withdrawal and suffering has somehow made them less likely to slide back into full blown addiction. This is not the case. It has been shown that the changes meth makes in the brain can take up to a year to ... ...

Getting off Methadone!
There are 2 of us males early 30s. One of us underwent major back surgery 3 years ago and a has been addicted to pain meds for a total of 5 years and myself about 3 just from simply being his main caretaker and dipping into the cookie jar a few to many times like an idiot. We went back to our general dr. (same guy) And explained that we are both full fledged addicts an have been obtaining methadone off the street as is seems to be the only thing that works. He asked us what we where getting off the street and we told him Methadone. His response was, well that's the smartest thing you have done so far!? because of its extremely long effect on the body. We told him we need his help that we just have no money left and our livers are just a mess... we cant move on with life. He decided ... ...

detox methods to get off suboxone
I ,due to a severe injury,was on methadone for 8 yrs and got off that crap and on suboxone at the advice of a friend. I now am at 2 mgs of suboxone daily. My pain issues are mild to none and I want off subs .I went to my doctor who claims he has Much experience with this and has proven that to me...but his method is scaring me and from what I read online I am very hesitant. He prescribed me 2mg dilaudid and valium which I hate and plans to wean me off the subs. Is this right??? I can handle a mild w/d but not a heavy one due to my work. I am not looking for people tellin me to suck it up or give advice other than if the detox method described is reasonable or crazy?? Everytime I try to go below 2mg of subs I feel like hell will a dilaudid taper make it easier or start a new addiction an... ...

Using Fentanyl to get off methadon
I have been on Methadone for about 5 years. I had an addiction to oxycontin and the went on methadone to quit. My highest dose was 120mg and I have managed to wean myself down to 17mg. The problem is I am having a really hard time getting off of it. Doing some reading I have learned that methadone is one of the worst for trying to quit. I have a perscription for 12mcg/h fentanyl for back pain which I havent been using but was thinking about quiting the methadone and using the patch instead so when I eventually drop it the withdraws won't be as bad. Has anyone tried this? is 12mcg enough? Any other thoughts or advice? ## I'm sending only a suggestion for you and that is...... If I were you the 12mcg. will be way way too low of a dose when coming off of oxycontin!!!! You should be... ...

does suboxone get you off methadone
I have suffered from opiate addiction for about 15 years. After about 4 years of different narcotic & benzos pills, my family finally intervened & a long-term rehab (about 1 year) helped me. I stayed sober almost 6 years. But since I relapsed 7 years ago (long story), I have had a lot of trouble & been on (& for brief times off) a downward spiral. I have now lost almost everything & my family now wants nothing to do with me. I have so little hope & even thought of suicide. I have been getting methadone pills (off the street) for over a year now. Every time I try to stop I find by the 3rd, 4th day I am in too much agony & pick up again. These on & off attempts have been going on for 4 months. After a few days without, I go back on, taking between 2-3 10mg ... ...

can i use methadone to get off of percocets?
I take about 150mgs of percocet30mgs a day and I want to know if I take methadone will it help with the withdrawl & shakes of the stopping the percocet dose every day.. I have used methadone to come off of percocets before, but it was at a way lower dose.. I know suboxtons are what is recomended but from what I'm told @ my dose methadone is stronger if I use it right ## In my honest opinion I don't think that Methadone will be of the best help, seeing as there is a possibly unsafe interaction between Methadone and the Oxycodone found in Percocet. The interaction between these two drugs states the following: "Central nervous system- and/or respiratory-depressant effects may be additively or synergistically increased in patients taking multiple drugs that cause these effec... ...

Over The Counter Pill To Get Off Methodone
I am looking for a pill over the counter to help me get off methadone ## Dude...mix all that with methadone and you will die or go into a coma.methadone amplifies their effects of all muscle relaxes and shot like valium and zanax ## @Christina, To my knowledge there aren't any OTC drugs that are specifically indicated for opiate withdrawals. Usually for drugs like this the safest way to stop taking them is to tapper off them, under a doctor's supervision if possible. Some medications can be taken in fractions (actually cut into pieces) and these smaller pieces can be taken in place of the regular dose for a period of several weeks until the body is no longer dependent upon them. This is probably one of the most common ways in which people actively try to avoid severe withdrawal ... ...

titration off methadone
Hi ! I was addicted to opiates for three years due to several work comp surgeries, I chose to use methadone to get off the pills ,now it was been a year since I started the methadone and I am ready to titrate down and just get away from it all!! Can anybody tell me what I am going to feel lIke, will I have withdrawal symptoms the whole time?? I take 100m a day, I'm a little scared of how I'm gonna feel, can somebody help??? ## It is very hard to say. Methadone is known to create severe withdrawal symptoms, that's why most people never actually get off of it and end up on a lifetime maintenance dose. Thus, any attempted tapering off of it must be done very, very slowly and can take a good period of time. Have you considered getting medical assistance? ## Yes I get it through ... ...

can i use methadone to get off of a high dose percocet
I take about 150mgs of percocet30mgs a day and I want to know if I take methadone will it help with the withdrawl & shakes of the stopping the percocet dose every day.. I have used methadone to come off of percocets before, but it was at a way lower dose.. I know suboxtons are what is recomended but from what I'm told @ my dose methadone is stronger if I use it right ## Well the main issue is that the Methadone itself is very addictive and you could end up trading one problem for another. That is the reason that Suboxone has become the preferred addiction treatment option, because it has helped many more people become drug free, rather than have to stay on a lifetime maintenance dose of it, as happens with most people that use Methadone. What has your doctor recommended? ...

How to get off Suboxone
Im Marina Im 24 years old and a mother of 2 beautiul little boys. From the years 2006-2007 i was heavily addicted to Oxy 80 and eventually started doing herion. I got help in sep.2007 at a methadone clinic, it worked for as long as i was on the methadone i had NO relapse's. In June 2009 i was completly off of the methadone that first day that i was on 0Mgs I went through extreme withdrawls i went through things that i would never wish upon my worst enemy! i stayed that way for a day and a half and decided to go to a suboxone doctor. He put me on 32 mgs a day which i thought was pretty high of a dose but he explained to me that methadone withdrawls was worst then any other withdrawls. so i trusted him. Now when i go to see him every month i pretty much beg for him to start the weinin... ...

I'm getting off suboxone
Well yesterday was my last day of subs for me. I tapered myself all the way down to .5mg a day. I'm ok today but my back is starting to mess with me, but I'm fine. The highest dose I've ever taken was 8mg but didn't like the way it made me feel. I've been on subs for almost 5yrs now and it's just time to stop. I'M SICK AND TIRED OF BEING SICK AND TIRED!! It all started with a real bad car accident in which I rolled my car 4 times on I95 in Virginia almost 11yrs ago. Was put on pain pills and the next thing you know I was using oxy's and H main streaming it. Got clean then went right back to it. Went to methadone clinic, and then switch to subs and here I am almost 5yrs later. The hardest part for me right now is that I have a full time job that I like, an... ...

I need help finding a doctor in Michigan to prescribe me methadone for my addiction right now i am buying it off the streets and it is so hard and expensive not to mention they are so hard to get they are around maybe once a month... but i cant go to a clinic everyday does anyone know of a dr that would prescribe by month or week???? ## It sounds like you've been taking Methadone for some time now. Perhaps it's time you just stopped taking drugs?? Methadone doesn't need to be taken for a month to cure you of your addiction. My feelings are that you are now addicted to Methadone. That's probably why you have to buy it on the street. No doctor is going to pander to that. Get off the opiates - go through the withdrawals and get on with your life. (I did this myself before).... ...
