Im pregnant, should i still be taking methadones?
i need answers! ## NOOOOO!!!! ## NO ARE YOU FREAKING NUTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ## If you are pregnant already don't listen to them talk to your doctor first.When I was pregnant my doctor told me not to stop taking my methadone because it will make the fetus go into shock and die,causing me to miss carry.So I stayed on and I had a healthy baby.The only problem with that is that my baby had to take methadone for 2 weeks.(If your on a higher dose it might take longer if your on a lower dose it might be shorter).If your not pregnant already you should get off first it would be best you can breastfeed then(Methadone passes through breast milk). ## please email me about this pregnancy because i was on methadone the whole 9 months an... ...

pregnant and needing help
I've been on Suboxone since April 2012. Last week I found out I am pregnant, and am about four weeks along. I called my doctor who prescribes the Suboxone, and she has left me with a difficult ultimatem. She has prescribed subutex for a week, and then my treatment is up to me. I either need to go to methadone clinic (which is too far for me to drive daily, and id have to win the lotto to afford it) or risk a miscarriage by not taking anything. She will only help me for a week. I've contacted the Suboxone hotline, and women can take subutex or methadone while pregnant with less risk than Suboxone. Where can I look.for another doctor? I feel like no one will want to treat me since my doc is basically throwing me out. If anyone has any suggestions or ideas of where I can look.for.h... ...

Pregnant Women beware
Fyi to anyone considering subutex or suboxone while pregnant-beware that your baby is passed your opiates. I took lortab and subutex while pregnant weaned off of all 8 weeks prior to delivery and my son has autism. I know that no one knows what causes autism, but it's not worth your experimentation! beware! if you don't stop before delivery your baby will have withdrawl and the hospital will know for sure. take good care. ## I am 36 weeks pregnant, and have been on oxycodon for the entire time. I managed to get down to 45 mg, about a month ago, but told my doctors about my addiction bc i couldnt kick the habit myself. The doctor refered me to the methadone clinic but i didnt want to take methadone cause i can abuse it. Just got on subutex. 2 8mg tablets a day. Im so scared about... ...

Best Painless Way To Detox Off 100mg Of Liquid Docterprescribed Methadone
I am a 36 year old female, I was pregnant and on 35 and during the duration of the pregency I wnt up tp 145mg. The highest I have eever been. I had the baby and in 4 months detoxed down to 95 with the intention of getting off. However if anything stressful happens in your life your sick. I have have small kids and stepkids, I cannot detox with them needing me. I heard of a pill called Buprenorphine. However I'm told it's expensive, and some said it takes 3 days. I want my life back. I hate the sweating, dependency, water weight. I just want to to be free of this. Can anyone think of a way legally to detox with the least amount of pain.Please Mom in California::-Methadone Details.

need help with cost of suboxone
mom of three and been an addict for 20years. did not use while pregnant but now I have lost control of everything. I have no extra money. I get my morphine and oxy free from my job. I'm not a nurse but I work with not so ethical ones. I can't get suboxone because of cost. I need to stop before I kill myself. I've tried cold turkey 7 times. I'm such a weak person I guess. I've overdosed twice. why is it so expensive. I just need help and can't afford it. is there any kind of programs I could join to get it cheaper? ## Have you considered treatment with Methadone at one of the clinics? I know it's not as effective as Suboxone, but it is much cheaper. Learn more Methadone details here. There used to be an assistance program for Suboxone, but I've been unable... ...

Dilaudid Withdrawal Pregnancy
I am 19 weeks pregnant. I have been taking 2mg Dilaudid every four hours daily, which would be a total of 12mg in a 24hr period. I have been taking it since 13 weeks pregnant, so a little over 6 weeks. I have been taking it every single day for chronic kidney pain. My doctor decided to transfer my care to a pain management clinic, and my appointment is not until Tuesday, it is currently Saturday. My OB refuses to write me a script to get to through until my appointment, and even though I have been taking them only as directed, they want be to come in and be converted to Methadone. NOT HAPPENING. I will suffer through all the pain in the world before having a child born to Methadone. My OB has refused to wean me down on the medication, so I am currently off it cold turkey. My last dose w... ...

find adoctor in a that prescribes subutex virginia
I am detoxing off 130 mg tht I have been on for 6 years. I need a doctor in VA or NC, I live near Norfolk. Everyone wants to prescribe suboxone but my doctor warned me that if I take suboxone and have ANY methadone in my system that it will throw me into SEVERE withdrawal. Also, we are going to be trying for a baby soon so I cannot take Suboxone while breastfeeding. If you know of a doctor in or around Norfolk VA that can prescribe Subutex, not Suboxone please notify immediately. ## Really, the same doctors that prescribe Suboxone can also prescribe Subutex. Learn more Suboxone details here. However, they are most likely going to want you to start with Suboxone, then switch to Subutex, when you are pregnant. They will just have you wait, until you are in full withdrawal to start the med... ...

I have been clean for 8 years now on Methadone. I have been at my clinic for almost 9 years and have NEVER failed a drug test. I had two weeks take homes and a drug test came back diluted (low creatinine 14). Recently found out I am pregnant and the drug tests started coming back as diluted from the first test they gave me while pregnant. I am not doing anything to try and pass the tests because I am CLEAN. Also just found out my iron is very low (hemoglobin & blood cell count is low). I have had an observed drug test and random drug tests since my first came back with low creatinine or creatitine which ever it is and they all came back the same. Low creatitine, went from in 100's down to 14. I have to drive over 30 minutes one way to my clinic & really need to get my take h... ...
