Need help getting off methadone
6 Replies RSS
I've been on the methadone program for abit longer then a yr and I want to get off now, I can say for sure that I'm hooked on it.. Is it possible I can quit dry turkey? Without moving down milligram at a time or could I hurt myself by doing such a thing? ## Hi Jessika! I would suggest tapering down SLOWLY or you could go through some bad withdrawals. I was on methadone and tapered down slowly and still went through withdrawals. I ended up going on Suboxone. ## You should definitely NOT QUIT COLD TURKEY, especially since you've been on Methadone for over one year! Most people take the dose down by10mg until they reach 100 mg and then 5 mg per day. I went from 160 mg all the way down to 5 mg. Believe it or not, the 5mg worked and I didn't have bad withdrawals. If you taper... ...

methadone and garcinia cambogia
80 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... ...

I just started Methadone treatment.

I have been on methadone for about 3 weeks now. I started at 30 and I a currently on 60. The problem that is bothering me is that I am tired and will nod a lot. Is this just because I just started this program or is my dose to high??? ## I have been on Methadone for over 10 years now. if I knew then what I know now I wouldn't be on such a high dose as I currently am. If you're nodding, then your dose is a little too high. My suggestion to you is to cut back 5 or 10 mg a day and see how that works. I promise you, the higher you go the harder it is to get off meth. If you are really serious about being drug free, develop a good relationship with a PCP (Personal Care Physician) and let him know what’s going on with you. That way you can strategize as to what the best detox ap... ...

taking 135 mgs of methadone,trying to take oxycodone
2 Replies RSS
my mom has been on methadone for 13 years. She is on 135 mgs of the methadone. And she is now being prescribed 10 MG oxycodone for server pain and I told her she needed to chose either to take the methadone or take the oxys. well my question is, is if she wants to take the oxys how long would she have to go off the methadone before she would get relief from the oxycodone?? ## I used to take Oxycontin. Oxycodone is pretty much the same thing. It is a very addictive drug and very easy to abuse. I developed a resistance to it's effectiveness very quickly, requiring more and more to get the same pain relief. This drug is dangerous. It destroyed my life, and almost cost me it. I have since been on methadone for several years now, only 60 mg per day, and it works much better for my pain. ... ...

Subutex Vs Methadone For Pain Control

I had an allergic reaction to a medicine that I was prescribed for migraines and on Easter of 2009 I literally died. I flat-lined 3 times and was in a coma for 18 days.

Thank goodness I did wake up and although I had to learn to eat, walk, speak, etc. all over again. All of my organs are 100%. But I ended up with horrible drop foot on both feet and we don't know why, but also horrible bilateral neuropathy. I have been through so many surgeries just so that my feet would actually work so that I could walk again, however we can't seem to control the pain of the neuropathy, because we don't know how I got it.

My doctor will not believe me. When I take prednesone then methadone, the methadone does not seem to work at all. Now if I wait until then next day, putting up with pain all night long, the methadone does work the next day. Does anyone have any medical literature on this topic? ASAP please, she has me on 5 mg t.i.d. Down from 10 mg t.i.d. The ten barely worked, why she would think 5 mg will work is beyond me. LLS07 Old Hickory, TN. ## Hello, Larney! How are you doing?

Looking for methadone doctor in jacksonville fl
4 Replies RSS
Hi all. I'm really hoping someone here can help me. I suffer from a protruding disc and degenerative disc disease in my lower back. I've been in pain management programs since 2011. At one point, my oxy use got to the point where I was using 100+mg daily. Once I realized that I couldn't continue on the path that I was on, I voluntarily got myself in to a suboxone/subutex program in Jacksonville, Fl. Right away, I realized that I couldn't take the suboxone because of the headaches that it gave me, but the subutex worked amazing for withdrawls and does help to make the pain more manageable. Now that I've been on it for nearly 8 months months, I've been considering methadone as an alternative because my insurance only agreed to pay for the subs for up to one year. I... ...

i have been taking 60mg.morphine sulfate with little relief i just started on methadone hcl 10mg. & found them to be stronger & more effective my wife just believes that it is the change but i am convinced the methadone is stronger who is right? ## It would take 15mgs of Methadone to equal each 60mgs dose of the Morphine, so I'd have to give the win to your wife.

I'm prescribed 10/325 oxycodone max 3 daily for breakthrough pain and 15 mg methadone 3 times a day. All's great but I'm not always taking the breakthrough meds. Will there be an issue when getting lab work? I never over take my meds, just sometimes take less oxycodone. ## Make sure to inform your doctor, before they do any lab work. That way they know what levels they should be looking at. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

When can I take my suboxone?

I used to take methadone primarily. Before that perks. My access was to liquid methadone. I would take approx 25 mgs in the morning and an additional 10-15 mgs at dinner. Enough was enough and I got in a suboxone program. Now I know opinions will vary on the best way to get clean. I feel this is currently my best option. I run a store, working 60+ hours a week, 6 days a week. Unfortunately I've already missed 4 days due to the flu and being dope sick. I was suppose to get my script for suboxone last night but the pharmacy messed up. So I ran out and got 2 perk 15s. I took one at 12:30 to help me sleep. Then took half at 9 and the other half at 10:30 or so. When can I take my suboxone? Dr suggested I wait till either last night or this morning but that was before the pharmacy messed ... ...
