how long after taking percocets can i take suboxone
i was on methadone havent had any since monday. been taking percocet to help with withdrawal. took 10 mg of percocet about 4:00 this morning. how long til i can take a suboxone ## how long after taking percocet can i take suboxone ## 4 days ## You should follow your doctor's prescribing instructions. In order to take Suboxone, you have to be in full withdrawals from other opiates, because otherwise the Naloxone in it could throw you into very dangerous withdrawals. Learn more Suboxone details here.* Thus, there is no set time frame for when to start treatment, because the onset of full withdrawals can vary from person to person, depending on how their body handles it. Some people may end up in full withdrawals within 12 hours, or it could be 4 days for others. What has your doctor a... ...

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... ...

I Have Been Taking 30mg Of Methadone For 6 Weeks And Changed Script Now Take Percocet How Long Will It Me To Stop Having Withdrawls
I have been taking 30mg a day of methadone for 6 weeks and wanted to switch to percocet and changed script now take 45mg of percocet a day. How long will it take for me to stop having withdrawls symptoms from methadone? I am feeling sick even while I am taking the percocet. Is it possible to still go through methadone withdrawls even while you are taking the percocet? ## You should not be switching from methadone to percocet which is very addictive also. If your Dr. can perscribe suboxen try that. It helps to take away the pain of opiate withdrawl. ## I forgot to mention Suboxen can also be addictive.. ## Methadone is well known to cause withdrawals, regardless of what it is replaced with. That is why many people end up on a lifetime maintenance dose of it, rather than ever being able t... ...

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? ## yes,... ...

Percocet addiction
Hello, I need some help. My husband has been in pain for some unknown nerve problems and the do for that he was seeing prescribed him Vicodin for the pain. Over time his tolerance went up and he got referred to a pain management specialist and he starte prescribing him methadone and 10 mg percocets for his pain. He has been abusing pain pills fr about 8 years now and he is up to taking 30+ percocets a day when he gets his prescription filled along with 10-15 of the methadone (80 mg pills I think?) then when he runs out, which is very quickly, he gets a lot from other people. He has a horrible problem and I don't know what to do. I want to leave him but he doesn't have a job because he lost it from taking off too much work and he doesn't have his license. I guess what I am as... ...

where can I find methadone in columbus OH
Where can I find a doctor in Columbus Oh that will prescribe methadone for chronic back pain? My doctor gives me percocet but it just doesn't help. ## What other medications have you tried? And what is the dosage of the Percocet? The reason I'm asking it because Methadone should really be the last resort medication, for several reasons. The first is because there are other stronger and safer options available, such as Morphine or higher doses of Oxycodone. Learn more Morphine details here. Learn more Oxycodone details here. Another is due to the fact that Methadone is so very highly habit forming, so most people never get off of it, even if they're just using it for pain. Learn more Methadone details here. ## I take percocets 7.5. I go to a pain management clinic and that is... ...

methadone and surgery
I'm having surgery for knee replacement and this is the first time I've had surgery and general anaesthetic while on methadone. Can anyone advise me about the safety of this and how they will treat post-operative pain? ## I have had two surgerys while on methadone, you will be fine they gave me percocet for pain and it took the edge off which is what it should do, alot of people think they should be pain free after a surgrey while taking pain pills but that is not the case hope all goes well ## Hello. If you are on methadone maintenance for opiate addiction, you will need to tell the surgon so he/she knows how to treat your pain and your general sedation. Methadone won't help your post op pain, so he/she will have to prescribe another type of painkiller. One of the reasons i... ...

Methadone for Pain Management
I am taking 60mg of methadone a day for pain management, given to me by a rheumatologist in Pa. We are moving to NJ. Will it be hard to find a doctor in NJ that will prescribe it for me there? I have been on it for about 6 years. I also take Percocet 10/325 for breakthrough pain. ## I am not sure how hard or easy it will be to find someone, some doctors are more understanding and liberal than others. The best advice I can give you is to make sure you take a complete copy of your medical records from your current doctor with you. By doing this you make sure they get the full records of all current tests and prescribing information and you also ensure that they get all of the information and nothing is lost or left out during a records transfer.

Replacement For Methadone
I am currently on 10 mg of methadone 16 times a day. I have to have something for my backpain but cannot deal with the side effects of methadone anymore. What would be a replacement drug that would be as effective? ## Hi Sara, Sorry to hear that your pain medication isn't working as well as you'd like it to. Some of these side effects can be pretty horrible, so I don't blame anyone for trying to find an alternative. A few suggestions I can give you for other prescription pain medications include: Demerol, Morphine, Vicodin (extended release), Percocet, Dilaudid, Opana, Oxycodone, and Fentanyl. Your doctor would have a better clue as to which one of these would best replace the drug you're currently on, but honestly, there's no way of telling ahead of time how you... ...

I have a script for methadone. Took it to Walgreens,but they said it cant be filled until November11,2013... I really need my meds before i go into terrible WD. Plz help... ## If you are at a pain clinic, then you need to call them and tell them you've either had a bad month and over-taken and work with them to get you back on track. If its your family doctor? Be ware, they may cut you off completely. I've been down the road of methadone and it was a terrible drug to be on for me personally.

what to say to dr. to get methadone for legs?
About 3 years I was working on a telephone tower and I fell 15 feet to the ground. I severely hurt my legs. My dr. prescribed me percocets for a few months, but then stopped me on them because he felt I should be better and doesn't believe in long term pain management. Well I continually bring to his attention the severe pain i have from my prior injury and he tells me that there is nothing he can do about it. I have been referred to another dr. by some friends, whom I go see in a few days. I really would like his help with pain management. I have heard that his pain management choice is methadone, which I have tried before and it really helped but, I would like to know if anyone has any suggestions as to what I can say to be sure that he will take my pain seriously and start me on ... ...

Just started methadone treatment. I have questions.
I'm a 38 year old addicted to pain pills for about 20 years. My husband passed away this year Feb 14. That's when my addiction got way out of hand. I was taking lortab 10 about 30 og them a day or I would take percocet 10 or roxicet 30. I started methadone treatment last Tuesday. Started off at 20mg. They have bumped me up to 40 mg yesterday. I'm now sick to my stomach and very sleepy. Is this from the increase? The nutse said to give it a couple days if I'm still not feeling good then I can talk about lowering the dose. The problem with that is I feel the withdraw and I crave pills. Jas anyone else have problems like this when going up on methadone? In the past I have used suboxene onlu to fail at it twice and going back to lortabs. I know methadone is very strong and v... ...

terrible headache using methadone to detox myself
Hi, I was taking 40-100 mg of Percocet a day- I weaned off and took about 10-40 mg of hydrocodone a day. I was feeling sick and got 10 mg methadone pills. I took 20 mg the first night-I did get a euphoric feeling and woke up with a terrible headache. I took 15 mg of methadone last night to continue taper going down to 1 10 mg of methadone tonight and 5 mg tomorrow, and hoping I won't feel withdrawal but my head hurts so bad-it feels as if it is going to combust. I can barely text this. Am I going to feel worse or better? My body aches all over as well. Did I overdose myself? Is this normal??? ## Hi DMM, you may be going through some withdrawals with some of your symptoms. It's difficult to detox yourself off opiates without medical intervention. The professionals know how much m... ...

find a dr in or near lancaster ohio that can prescribe liquid methadone for detox off suboxone
Hello, I am looking for a Dr in or near Lancaster Ohio that can prescribe LIQUID methadone to me to get me off Suboxone. Here is a little background. I took percocets for recreation use for just over a year. In November of this year I will have been on 24mg of Suboxone a day for 2 years. Yes I have been on the subs twice as long as my addiction lasted. Don't get me wrong subs saved my ass but I am ready to close this chapter in my life and move on. I have tried several times to taper off subs and have just accepted that I do not have the will power to do so. I am a stay at home mom w an ADHD 9 yr old and a very busy 3 year old, if I have the subs I take them. So, here's where the liquid methadone comes in. There is very little "help" here in Lancaster/Columbus Ohio unles... ...
