I need a dr in the dallas/ ft worth area that will prescribe methadone I tried Suboxone for 5 years no luck. Methadone has worked but I'm working as a CPA for a firm and the clinics are so difficult these days. Any help would be appreciative. Also if you didnt get it was for opiate treatment. ## HI, Ryan! Sorry about the problems that you're having. However, a general practitioner isn't allowed to prescribe Methadone for addiction. Under the current laws, it can only be administered for that in a clinical setting by those that are specially trained in its use for such. Learn more Methadone details here. I wish I had better news for you, but the laws leave no leeway for this. Why didn't the Suboxone work for you? ## There has to be a dr or better "clinical" Experi... ...

doctors who will prescribe methadone for pain management phoenix arizona
I have been on methadone for about 6 years and had to start going to a maintenance clinic a few yrs ago after my pain dr lost his license here in Phoenix, Arizona. I tried going to another pain clinic after mine closed but they wanted me off the methadone and forced me to taper off of it in one week and demanded I took gabapentin which DOES NOT work and they didn't care. Anyways, I went to mmt clinic and have been there since but there are so many things wrong with it, I'd end up writing a book. Does anyone know of a pain Mgmt doc who writes methadone scripts in Metro Phoenix area? ## Unfortunately, since you've been going to the clinic, it isn't likely that you'll find a doctor that will take you on. For addiction/maintenance, the current laws will only allow it to ... ...

Looking for private methodone dr not clinic
I am looking for a private methodone dr I am so tired of having to start my day driving to an hour away one way to a clinic I am a single mom and trying to work as well it is super overwhelming I have tried suboxone and I am back on methodone don't know if there is a way to get it so I only drive once a week or month ## I am in new Hampshire ## I'm not 100% about NH restrictions however in NY methadone can only be prescribe and dispensed at a clinic. Further the FDA requires special provider training in order to prescribe and treat patients with methadone. Many pharmacies do not carry methadone as even when a patient is given an rx for a take home dose it is for 7 days at a time. Further methadone now is very rarely if ever used in tx of pain. So in short it is unlikely you will... ...

If i take 130mg of methadone a day will a 60mg morphine sulfate help get me thru one day
I go to a methadone program and have for about 4 years .Ive recently had the flu which causedme to vomit up my methadone (I get 5 take home bottles a week) tried taking another bottle and threw up again im feeling sick from not taking it so I took a 60mg morphine sulfate pill,will this help at all? ## It may help stave off the worst of the withdrawals you could experience, since it is also a narcotic. However, before doing so in the future, you really should call the doctor or clinic you are working with and get their advice, first. Taking another narcotic may not be approved and might get you kicked out of the Methadone program. How are you feeling now? ## Because of a heart problem my wife was taken off 150 mg per day immediately and it was replaced by morphine. Dr. said 20 mg morphin... ...

I Need To Find A Doctor Indianapolis IN that Will prescribe Methadone For Chronc Pain
I AM TRYING TO FIND A DOCTOR THAT WILL PRESCRIBE METHADONE FOR CHRONIC PAIN. ITS COMMONLY KNOWN AS DOLOPHINE AND COMES IN 10MG TABLETS. I USUALLY TAKE 40MG PER DAY. IT IS SO MUCH CHEAPER AND MORE CONVENIENT THAN CLINICS. I AM TOO FAR AWAY FROM CLINIC ANYWAY. THANK YOU ## I'm sorry, but there's no central listing of doctors that will prescribe any particular medication and there's never a guarantee when seeing one that they will prescribe anything. The main problem with Methadone is that is so highly habit forming and addictive. This makes most doctors very reluctant to prescribe it for pain, unless everything else has completely failed to work and all other options have been exhausted. Learn more Methadone details here. What else have you tried to treat your pain? There are ... ...

I got help in sep.2007 at a methadone clinic, it worked for as long as i was on the methadone i had NO relapse's.

Methodone Dilemma
I have been taking Methadone for opiate addiction for almost 20 years! It has worked for me! The only time I relapsed was when I moved from NY to Ohio and had to wait to transfer into a different clinic. I have been clean since 2002! My problem is; I recently lost my medicaid because I do not live with my 12yr.daughter and her mom anymore.Ohio Social Services does NOT give medicaid to single men unless they are on disability or SSI. I am on neither being that I am capable of working, even though I am a insulin-dependent Diabetic also.I work part-time making 8.00per hour. The clinic I go to is 60 miles away, and medicaid was paying for my transportation also. Now I am faced with two dilemmas...getting to the clinic twice a week because I do not have a car at this time (I do get "take... ...

do you gain weight with suboxone?
Hi I'm just starting to research suboxone. I'm currently going to a methadone clinic every day and it is such a hassle. I have to get up every morning at 4am to be there in time to get to work the line is so long but that's beside my point, My real question is Do you gain weight with Suboxone? This is my third attempt at trying to get off of opiates by taking Methadone but every single time I start taking Methadone I gain 40 to 60 pounds within the first 4 months. Most people do, some don't I just happen to be one of them. I get so discouraged by the weight gain that I stop going to the Methadone clinic and then start using again. Sadly my mom died from using the same drug I used before treatment. I have 3 children and want to get my life together again but I just can... ...

hI hOPEFULLY SOMEONE WILL ANSWER PROMPLY AS MY APPT IS TOMARROW. AFTER 3 YRS ON SUB IVE HAD ENOUGH AND AM GOING ONTO METHODONE. I KNOW HOW IT GOES FROM AN OPIATE TO SUB BUT HOW DOES IT WORK GOING FROM SUB ONTO METHODONE ## I know its been a while, and Im sorry you had no help here by the looks of things, but I was wondering.....How did you end up doing it and did it help? Thanks ## Yes, I am also hoping you got the answers you needed from your doctor, or clinic. Unfortunately, I don't have any information on switching from Suboxone to Methadone, or what the proper procedure is. Most of the questions we receive are in regards to switching from other drugs to Suboxone, since it allows you to become completely drug free, where Methadone usually doesn't. If you did get the informati... ...

want to start a suboxone program
Im want to kick my opiate addiction! I want to know how much suboxone will i need to take a day? Does it really work? How much does it cost?...etc... Ive been taking opiates for 10 years but only everyday for the past 4 years. I take 100mg-150mg of morphine or 20-30mg of methadone a day. I tried to quit cold turkey by slowly weaning myself down for about 2 weeks to nothing. What a mistake that was, even after 7 days of not taking anything i was just as sick as i was on day 1. I thought about getting on the methadone clinic but its too much of a hassle for me. I also dont want anyone to know about my addition, kinda hard to do when you need to go to the clinic everyday. I heard suboxone is expensive is it really worth it? I can live without being "high" but i cannot live threw th... ...
