Sulfameth Trimethoprim And Methadone
3 Replies RSS
I am currently on 20mg of Methadone and went to the dr yesterday and was prescribed Sulfameth/Trimethoprim. My dr. knows that I am on Methadone from my last appt with her a couple months ago. I just want to make sure that it is ok to take these together. ## Hi Nicole, From what I could gather, there is said to be a "minor" interaction between Methadone and Sulfa-Tmp. Some minor drug interactions may not be clinically relevant in all patients, since minor drug interactions do not usually cause harm or require a change in therapy. However, your healthcare provider can determine if adjustments to your medications are needed. The information I found on this interaction is quoted below, although I personally don't find their wording to make the most of sense: "Limited data su... ...

morphine sulfate 60mg vs methadone 10mg
1 Reply RSS
My morphine sulfate 60mg were stolen, and I hve some methadone 10mg. I was supposed to take the Morphine sulfate 60mg X3 a day. How should I take these methadone 10mg to help me get through until I see My Dr. next week? ## I'd suggest actually calling your doctor to see what you should do. If you're under a treatment contract, taking something else, regardless of the circumstances, without doctor's permission could violate it and result in your getting dismissed as a patient. 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. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

Can u take sulfameth/trimethoprim 800/160 while on methadone? I once took cipro and went into immediate horrible withdrawal! ## Hello, Sandy! How are you? Yes, as long as your doctor is aware that you're taking both. There is a chance that it may prolong the QT interval of the heart, but it isn't considered to be a dangerous reaction. Side effects to this antibiotic may include nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

MY HUSBAND HAS BLADDER CANCER AND WAS PRESCRIBED 20 MG OF METHADONE EVERY MORNING. HE WAS ALSO GIVEN MORPHIN SULFATE 60 MGS TWICE A DAY. HOW SHOULD THESE MEDICINES BE TAKEN. ## Debra,i dont know why his dr. prescibed both Methadone and Morphine.The Meth. is known to block or cancel out the effects of the Morphine. ## i take 30mg 6 times aday plus 135mg of methadone a day for stomach cancer pain is it safe what are the dangers ## First of all methadone is not a blocker. People mistake it for suboxone because they are both used in opiate withdraw treatment. They first made methadone in world war II...when China cut Germany off from poppy trade. Hitler had his science goons make somthing to substitute opiate pain killers and Bam methadone is born. First used as a pain killer for many years... ...

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... ...

Which Is Stronger 30 Mg Of Morphine Sulphate Er Or 10 Methadone
28 Replies RSS
I am in a confusing debate with ex husband which is stronger 30 mg of morphine sulfate E.R or 10 mg of methadone? ## Methadone is stronger than Morphine, just as an example, if you were taking the 30mgs of Morphine, the equivalent dosage of Methadone would only be 3mgs, so it's a roughly 1mg to 10mg ratio. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I was on Methadone tablets for 13 years with a NY pain mgmt doctor who worked alongside an Orthopedic surgeon who originally diagnosed my lumbar-sacral pain from DDD (L5/S1) and nerve damage in my legs, plus osteoarthritis in hips and spine. My Methadone dose began at 30mg/day, and at it's highest 10 yrs later, was on 150mg/day. I had gastric bypass surgery in 2009, and lost 130 lbs by 2010. My Methadone dosage was able to be brought ... ...

morphine 60 mg sulphate dosage
2 Replies RSS
i have been taking 60mg.morphine sulfate with little relief i just started on methadone hcl 10mg. & found them to be stronger & more effective my wife just believes that it is the change but i am convinced the methadone is stronger who is right? ## It would take 15mgs of Methadone to equal each 60mgs dose of the Morphine, so I'd have to give the win to your wife. However, there is a caveat, it may not be just because of the change to a different medication, it could be due to the fact that the Methadone may just work better for you. Learn more Methadone details here. Sometimes the equivalency or one being stronger doesn't matter, if one just works better with your body. Everyone is different and this happens quite frequently. Are there any other questions I can help with... ...

Morphine and Prednesone
2 Replies RSS
My rheumatologist gave me prednesone 10 mg Q.D My Primary (PCP) gave me morphine sulfate 15 mg S.R. T.I.D I recently was on methadone and prednesone, but I believe one cancelled out the other, or so it seemed to me. I so far do not think this will happen with the morphine and prednesone, but I have only been on the morphine four days. Is ths in the literature? (methadone canceling prednesone ) Thanks for any infrmation ## Hello, Larney! How are you feeling? Yes, you are correct. Prednisone is known to decrease the effect of Methadone due to its effect on a certain intestinal/hepatic enzyme. However, there is no such interaction listed between it and the Morphine. Learn more Prednisone details here. Learn more Morphine details here. The Morphine, however, is a narcotic opiate, so it has ... ...

oxycontin replacement
2 Replies RSS
I am currently taking oxycontin 40 mg and I going from a private insurance plan to a Humana PPO Medicare advantage plan and they don't cover it. Some of the other option they recommend from humana was Methadone, Hydromorphone, Codeine Sulfate, Fentanyal Patch, Morphine, and oxycodone IR. I know Oxycodone is the same active ingredient oxycontin but I also take Oxycodone 15mg for breakthrough pain. It helps somewhat but it does help enough. My good day after taking the medicine and having my spinal cord stimulation implant device on is a 5 but an avg. day is 7.5. To give you a idea what a five to me is I broke both of my arms with one bone poking through was a 5.5 and that is a good day for me. My doctor is very hard to get him to increase my dose.

Does Anyone Know Of A Good Pain Management Dr In N Penna
17 Replies RSS
For the last 18 months I have seen a Pain Management Dr. in Pittsburgh Pa. I really like him. When I first started seeing him, I was on Methadone 30mg 3x a day. But had been on it for the last 6 yrs, so it really wasn't working all that great. In Sept. he put me on Opana 40mg 2 x a day. And it kind of helped. But when they changed its composition, it started to make me throw up. So, my Dr. put me on Morphine Sulfate 60mg 2 x a day. At first it caused severe vomiting. So I called him up, and told the nurse, and told her also that I dumped the bottle down the toilet, because I thought, this stuff, is nasty. He refused to write me a different script, and told me to come in as soon as I could get an appointment. Well, a week had gone by, and I was fishing around in my purse for some Neu... ...

Hi iam takeing morphine sulfate er 15mg my dr just started me on these one every 12 hours I took one at 5am it is now 12pm would it hurt me to take a nuther one...??? Iam in pain I was takeing methadon 10mg x3 but I wanted off of it so my ? Is can I take a nuthher morphine? ## Have you contacted your doctor? It isn't advisable to take them closer together, than the 12 hour dosing, unless your doctor specifically advises you to do so. It could result in your getting too much of the Morphine at once and may result in an overdose. Even though you have been switched to another narcotic, if you stopped the Methadone abruptly, without tapering, then you are likely to experience some withdrawal and rebound effects, which could result in pain that's much worse for a few weeks. ...

This is a time release tablet, a generic for MS Contin which is taken every 12 hours. And Britt is correct, the colors DO NOT MEAN ANYTHING.

57 71 otherside
1 Reply RSS
round white pill. M on one side and 15 on other side. Also there is a score down the middle. Any help deeply appreciated. ## Hi Carol, It looks like you want to identify two different pills here, is that correct? For the marking 57 71; the closest match that came up shows M 57 71. This is a rectangle-shaped pill with the letter "M" inside of a box (on the front side of the pill), with "57|71" on the backside of the pill, separated by a score line. Does this fit your description accurately? If so, this pill is Methadone Hydrochloride (10 mg). The other pill that is white and round with the imprint "M 15" was identified as Atropine sulfate + Diphenoxylate hydrochloride (0.025 mg - 2.5 mg). This pill is primarily used to treat diarrhea.

CAN I TAKE THE APO-sulfatrim 800/160 mg with TUMS. ## This contains Aulfamethoxazole and Trimethoprim, it is an antibiotic that's used to treat various types of infections. And I didn't find any interactions listed between it and the Calcium carbonate in Tums, but you should check with your doctor or pharmacist to be certain. Since the Calcium can affect the absorption of certain medications, it may also be advisable to take them a few hours apart, just to play it safe. Are there any other questions or comments? ## Hello im on the methadone program and i have been clean for a year. but i got a bad ear infections and by my doctor i got prescribed apo-sulfatrim ds 800. whe. i left my urine sample today he said i tested postive for benzos and i havent done anything. my methadone do... ...
