Any doctor can prescribe Methadone for pain, but most are very reluctant due to the fact that it is so highly addictive. Do you currently have a PCP that you see regularly? If so, having them refer you to someone would be the quickest and easiest way to get the help you need. Does anyone know of a good doctor in that area? ## There is a pain clinic in mercy hospital ... ...

find a doctor that prescribes methadone in birmingham al
I'm looking for a doc that will perscribe methadone. I recently get a perscription for 70mg a day and when I went to get my last refill he told me I need to find a new doctor that he won't be able to perscribe me anymore because they are changeing the law and for him to prescribe for pain management he had to be a PAIN specialist and then he would loose his mal practice so I'm in a huge bind. He's been prescribing me for almost 7 months and he said he would write me till the end of the year and that's it. Idk if he's lieing or what the deal is. I can't afford clinics not to mention my work schedule won't allow it. Has anyone else heard of this and or know of a doctor in or around birmingham.

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.

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 ... ...

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.

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... ...
