how to get methadone out of your system
Been on 20 mg of methadone for six years how long will it take to get out of my systen, thanks in advance ## This is only intended to be an estimate, but most medications are usually out of your system within about 5 days after your last dose. And usually for drugs like this, the safest way to stop taking them is to tapper off them under a doctor's supervision, if possible. So if you end up tapering, (which may be appropriate based on your description), then it will probably take a while longer before you can have your 'last dose' of methadone. Cold-turkeying just doesn't sound feasible after six years on any medication. Eating plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, staying hydrated throughout the day, and getting plenty of rest each night, will significantly aid your bo... ...

mass doctors
Looking for a doctor who prescribes methadone for pain in massachusetts ## Hello, Eric! How are you? I'm sorry, but there is no listing of doctors according to what they will or will not prescribe that I can refer to for you. If you require such a medication on a long-term, ongoing basis for chronic pain, you'll have to see a pain management specialist, since a PCP will no longer be able to prescribe it for you. And the only thing you can really do is set up an appointment with a specialist, make sure they receive a full copy of your current medical records, then keep the appointment so you can discuss what they will or will not do to help you. If you aren't happy with them, you'll have to try someone else. However, you can't ask about any specific medication, when y... ...

was getting methadone at a clinic but got medacare and cant go back they don't take madacare need to find new doctor in reno nv ## Hi, Andrew! How are you? I'm sorry, but a regular doctor can't prescribe Methadone for addiction treatment and, if you were going to an addiction clinic, regardless of why, that's what it is now listed under in your medical records. A regular doctor can only prescribe it for severe pain. Once you've been in a clinic for treatment with it, that is where you have to stay, under the current laws. I don't know what insurance they accept, or what Medicare covers, but you could use the search feature at to see if there is a doctor in your area that treats with it and call them to see if they accept Medicare.

im moving n need a doctor to write methadone for pain management
I have been on methadone for pain since 2003, moving from md to knoxville and need a doctor ## Hi, Kristi! How are you? The best thing to do, once you're in your new location, would be to find yourself a general practitioner and then have them refer you to a pain management specialist. Under the new regulations, a GP won't be able to prescribe such a medication for long-term pain management. They are restricted in what they can prescribe, why they can prescribe it and for how long they can prescribe it. Learn more Methadone details here. Can anyone recommend a good doctor in the area? ...

Doctors in Louisiana that prescribe methadone for chronic pain
I have been taking 120 mg of methadone for approximately 5 years. My husbands job transferred us from Florida to Louisiana where I found a pretty good pain doc. He is now running scared and wants to take me off of methadone. Methadone has given me a good quality of life; I am able to work and be a productive member of society. My doctor is unwilling or unable to assist me in finding a new doctor who will continue my meds. Oh yeah, I have been the route of blocks and injections and gotten little if any relief. I'm tired of being branded a drug seeker-I have years of medical records that back up my claims and verify the dosages that I've been on-what drug seekers have this kind of back up? I am looking for a Louisiana doctor, but am willing to travel (within reason of course). Ple... ...
