morphine 60 mg sulphate dosage
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. However, there is a caveat, it may not be just because of the change to a different medication, it could be due to the fact that the Methadone may just work better for you. Learn more Methadone details here. Sometimes the equivalency or one being stronger doesn't matter, if one just works better with your body. Everyone is different and this happens quite frequently. Are there any other questions I can help with... ...

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.

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.

small white pill west ward 473
This pill is a small white pill with west ward and the numbers 473 it is commonly referred to as methadone. This pill is methadone 10 mgs. ## Hi christopher, Based on my research, this pill is actually NOT methadone at all. A white round pill imprinted with "West-ward 473" on one side and a score line on the back, is identified as Prednisone (10mg). For verification, this pill is manufactured by West-ward pharmaceuticals and the National Drug Code (NDC) is: 00143-1473 Prednisone is in a class of medications called corticosteroids. It works to treat patients with low levels of corticosteroids by replacing steroids that are normally produced naturally by the body. It works to treat a wide variety of other conditions as well by reducing swelling and redness and by changing the way ... ...

Methodone to Morphine Drug Transition
My doc has changed my pain meds. I am taking 90 mgs. a day, and have been for 6 months. It doesn't work anymore. (Nerve damage from 5 failed back surgers and scarring from healing attempts.) He put me on 100mgs of MS Contin twice a day. I NEED to know what if anything I need to know about the transition. Scared as it a high dose. ## email me i have a question ## you're suppossed to get 100 mg of morphine to every 10 mg of methadone which means you should get 900 mg a day. Same thing happened to my wife. You need300 mg every 8 hours ## Pip is actually very accurate, Methadone is much stronger than Morphine and, if you've been taking 90mgs of the Methadone a day, you will need 337.5mgs of Morphine in a day to be at an equivalent dose. A twice daily dosing would require around ... ...

I'm a cronic pain patient going on 10 Years. I have had multiple surgeries on my lower back. I have been prescribed Oxycodone 30mgs up to as many as #240 a month -As low as #90 a month depending on which Dr. I was seeing at the time. This has been extended over a 5 yr period. I do not misuse, sell, give or abuse my medication In any way. I work a very labor intensive job with heavy machinery daily and have found other drugs such as: fentynal duragesic patches,morphine, dilaudid,methadone and Opana to greatly reduce awareness and complicate an already complicated job due to side effects. Now, I'm on Morphine #120 mgs a day.. both immediate and long acting release.. and can't function due to drowsiness and a "head in the clouds " type of feeling. At work, I have notice... ...

Pain Management Doctors/need advice on a new one for Norco
I am 39 years old. I have 4 herniated discs and 3 slipped discs my pain is sometimes too the point I can't move.I took 10 mg. norco witch worked then I moved to Cincinnati Ohio and the doctor I found wanted me to take Methadone and I don't like it, I just want too go back to the Norco. Please help me find a Doctor that can just give me what I need. ## Hi, Amanda! I'm sorry you're having such problems. There are probably several issues at play here that are causing them. One is that due to the increasing rates being found of improper prescribing and over prescribing, general practitioners and surgeons are being transitioned away from prescribing medications like Norco for long-term pain management. An attempt is underway to transition those to only being used for short pe... ...

Need doctor who will prescribe methodone for chronic severe pain.
I have a rare kind of polyneuropathy that affects my long nerves. I have had severe chronic pain for over 8 years. My pain doctor in Florida switched me from oxycontin to methadone because the oxycodone made it difficult to sleep. I recently moved to Mass. and so far the two doctors I've been to eliminated my breakthrough meds (oxycodone 30 mg. 4 times a day) and decreased my methadone from 140 mg a day (taken evenly in 10 mg a day) to 70 mg a day (10 mg. tabs throughout the day) and I am back to excruciating pain. I cannot work, eat a healthy diet, sleep, take care of my family, etc. Why don't any of these doctors realize that although there are risks related to taking opiates, that QUALITY of life is what is important to me? Do you know of any doctors in Mass. (Lowell area) th... ...

white round pill 54 142
Can you break the methadone 10mg into half?? ## Dear Samantha, yes, u can break them in half. It might b easier 2 get a pill cutter. They work great. U can get them at cvs or pretty much any pharmacy. They r sold over the counter. ## Yes as far as I know, personally have broken in half over ten years. Have chronic pain and when I was not in as much pain I often only took half (5 mg.). Contact your pharmacist first, if you call your Dr. they might decrease dose, feeling you don't need as much, I am assuming you take for pain relief. If so may days you will need dose prescribed. Wish that was my problem, after ten yrs. a new doctor said I abused, took other non-prescribed drugs and street pills. Without one blood-urine examination, so not one Dr. Will prescribe me even my meds. For Ga... ...

methadone and depression
i have read about methadone being used as an anti depressant. Does anyone know anything about this? When I was on low doses I was at my best ever in life. Not high, but just normal for the first time ever. Even though I am not using (4 years) I sometimes wish I could just be on 10 mg a day ## methadone being a pain med is a depressant however euphoria is a side effect. works for me. there are only 2 ways to get treat severe pain or to treat addiction. if you are thinking about a meth program you will have to present yourself as an addict and drop dirty urines. it's not so hard now a days as you don't have to have track marks you can join by just being addicted to pills. ## I have been on methadone for almost 2months, I was seriously addicted to pain pills for ove... ...

disket tablets
I've been taking Methadone Disket 40mg 4 times a day for neuropathy with great sucess but because the company has decided to supply it only for detox purposes I am forced to take 10mg tablets instead and I don't seem to be getting the same amount of relief, Has anyone else had this problem or any thought on this matter. Thank you ## I too can tell a big difference , the difference is that the discus (40 mg ) disolve in water so when you take the WAFFER / 40 MG it disolves a lot faster for quicker relief . the 10 mg. do not disolve as quick therefore the 10's take longer to disolve in your stomach & get into your body to work . i think the reason the waffer was taken off the drug stores is that it can be disolved in water completely & a user can shoot it up , the 10&#... ...

10 Mg Methadone 54 142 tablets for iv use
how do i prepare these 54-142 tabs for iv vinegar ? ## It is not safe to use a medication for injection if it has not been specially made to be used that way. Tablets contain fillers and not all of them are meant to be broken down by the human body, they are normally just expelled in your waste. However, if you try to break down a tablet for injection, then you are placing these substances in your body in a way, in which, it cannot process them out. This creates the very real risk of blockages, which can result in stroke or embolism. Are there any questions or comments? ## I have 10 mg Methadone pills. I tried to break it down and inject it, but it seems not to work BUT i heard it is possible. When i add water and cook becomes this thick substance...what can i do to fix that or ... ...

Does Methadone Show Up On A Drug Test
on a skin sweat patch test if used 4 days earlier and 3 days, 10 mgs per day, also am using daily subutex, xanax and soma, I know xanax will show but will the old methadone and the twice daily subutex, i have patch on ## These sweat patch tests only work for the detection of the substances that are actively being taken, while the patch is being worn. They can be used to detect Methadone, that is what they were originally designed to test for, but only if it has been taken while wearing the patch. The Buprenorphine in the Subutex can be detected, but it is not included in standard testing, so they would have to be specifically testing for it.

methadone shows up in urine test
what else would cause methadone toshow up in a urine test ## The only thing that would show up as Methadone is Methadone if they are testing for the specific drugs. Most standard urine tests do not, they just test for drug classes and concentrations, such as opiates, Benzodiazepines and Amphetamines. Are you currently taking some sort of opiate? There have been many posts recently about false positives on urine tests, so it makes me wonder if there is possibly a bad batch out there. ## they have to be testing for methadone specifically....otherwise it doesnt show up!!
