I am om methadone and I have gained 30 pounds since I started it why is it doing this to me. I eat healthy everyday. is there anything that can counter act the weight gain ## Methadone is a narcotic opiate, so in essence you need to think of it as a downer and that applies to every area of your body, including your metabolism. Thus, the same healthy foods and the same amount of calories that you used to eat may be too much for your body while you're on it. So, you may need to lower your daily calorie and fat intake, as well as increase your amount of exercise. Learn more Methadone details here. How much do you eat in a day? ...

Also have medicaid ## The best thing you can do, actually, is to find a new doctor and when you see them, just make sure that they get a full copy of your medical records, so they can see what has and hasn't worked for you in the past. If you try to hunt up a doctor that will prescribe a certain medication, such as by calling and asking, then they will usually see that as drug seeking behavior and won't even let you in the door. Learn more Methadone details here. Any doctor can prescribe it for pain, it is only the addiction treatment that has restrictions.

methadone stronger
I take 160mg if methadone I am tapering from 190mg and I feel awful by end if the day. Is there any OTC meds that can make it last longer?? I heard grapefruit juice but had no luck ## Hello, Crowe! How are you? I am sorry about the problem that you're having. Have you consulted your doctor about it? Jumping down 30mgs might just be too big of a drop for your body to handle and you may need to go a little slower. However, Methadone is notoriously hard to get off of, so it is likely that may always experience some withdrawal effects. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. ## Dear Crowe, I was on 110mg of methadone and decided it was time 4 me 2 taper down. ... ...

First Days Methadone
Hey everybody. This is my first time here, so please excuse me for just butting in. I just started methadone on Tuesday. Trying to get my life back. Anyway, just wondering what to expect. Some moments I feel great, then a little while later I feel as if a car dropped on me. I started at 30 mgs the first day..they up it by ten each day, so I'm at 50 today where I will stay for at least a week. So is there anything I can do to help me thru the shaky bits? Any info would be appreciated . Thanks! ## No worries, jump right in, that's what our site is here for! :-) It can take some time to adjust to being on the Metahdone, rather than whatever drug you were abusing. The dosage doesn't always match up quite exactly, so you may still experience some withdrawal symptoms, which are pr... ...

Getting off Methadone!
There are 2 of us males early 30s. One of us underwent major back surgery 3 years ago and a has been addicted to pain meds for a total of 5 years and myself about 3 just from simply being his main caretaker and dipping into the cookie jar a few to many times like an idiot. We went back to our general dr. (same guy) And explained that we are both full fledged addicts an have been obtaining methadone off the street as is seems to be the only thing that works. He asked us what we where getting off the street and we told him Methadone. His response was, well that's the smartest thing you have done so far!? because of its extremely long effect on the body. We told him we need his help that we just have no money left and our livers are just a mess... we cant move on with life. He decided ... ...

methadone withdrawel
Just wondered if anybody has any experience of coming off 30ml of methadone and how long it took them really.Ive cut down over a year from 60ml to 30ml but am getting impatient and hoped I could get some idea of how much longer Ide be taking it for.Any input much appreciated, Thanks Nasa. ## the slower you taper the better off you'll be. I have been told by countless people and the methadone watchdog forums that 30mgs in 1 year is a realistic goal. anything else and if you can actually make it through the physical withdrawls, the opiate receptor and endorphin depletion is what almost all but 10% can't make it through. Its called basically the blahs.. but BAD nothing makes you smile or happy or feel like doing anything and it can last anywhere from 2 weeks to 2 years depending on... ...

Hi, not sure if I'm posting in right area, I've never posted b4, 2make a long story short, i was on methadone 4 15yrs. For the past 2yrs they slowly tapered me cuz i did not want 2 feel any withdrawals. They got me all the way down 2 3mgs & i stopped going. Well that was 30days ago & I'm still going thru withdrawals .not severe, insomnia, anxiety, diarrhea, cold chills. My question is how 2 stop it, i just want 2 feel normal again. ## Hi, Tamara! Sorry about the problems you're having. However, that is one very big issue with Methadone, it tends to cause withdrawals and cravings for a very long period of time, that's why most people never completely get off of it and end up requiring a lifetime maintenance dose. Thus, I'm afraid there's no way to know... ...

I have a fused disc, two crushed vert., arthritus, etc... I am very lucky from what I have read here. First I was on Vicodin ,muscle relaxers, anti- inflamitories. I would monthly clear out my system and take notjing for a week. My Dr decided to change my meds because I built up such a tolorance to VICODIN. Now I take methadone 30mlg 3xday and Vicodin 7.5 for breakthru pain. I also have muscle relaxers. I thae 800mlg of Ibuprophin when I really over do tohelp with the inflamation.

Can I Mix Celexa And Methadone
i wanted to know if iam already methadone is it safe to take celexa? ## It is actually recommended that combining the two be avoided and an alternative medication be used in replace of the Celexa, if someone is already on Methadone. Combining the two of them increases the risk of QT prolongation, cardiac arrhythmias and a couple of other health risks. Did your doctor prescribe both? ## I'm on 60mg of methadone for the past year. I started taking celexa for the past 5 months. It works wonders for me. Always tell your Dr what you're on. My Dr knows what I'm on and he says its ok to take. I started on 20mg first now I'm on 30mg. ...

Methadone stopped my periods
Can any of the women out there tell me if taking methadone stopped thier periods? I have been on methadone for 4 years now and as soon as I went over 35mg it completely stopped and It has not come back since. I am on 60mg now. I did get lowered to 30 mg at one time years ago and it started right up again. Does anyone know if this might be dangerous? I have asked my doctor at the meth clinic and she stated its nothing to be concerned about because I wanted to know if I should be taking something to make it start and she said no, but for some reason it seems that it just does not sound good for a natural process to stop like that and not have it do any harm. Any feedback would be appreciated. ## Hi Silvia, I was on 100mg of methadone a day for several years as part of my pain management t... ...
