Methadone 7.5mg

I was asking if they make a 7.5 mg generic methadone pill? It is a white round pill with no markings except for a score line in the middle on one side ## Hi lois, Here in the U.S. the lowest I've seen online are only 5 and 10mg generic doses. I can argue though that there is an article on a study done here in the states, where cancer patients were randomly assigned to receive methadone 7.5 mg orally every 12 hours for 4 weeks. So I do believe it is available, but maybe only prescribed under specific circumstances. I could be wrong, but as of yet I have not come across anything stating otherwise. Did you order your pill from overseas? ## IN THE U.S there is no such thing as a 7.5 methadone tablet, only 5mg and 10mg, and of course the 40mg disk, the clinic's give out, ive been on ... ...

I took a 10mg Methadone at 8:00 AM and nothing since, is it safe to take a .5 mg of zanax now? ## Hello, Jinny! How are you? If they've both been prescribed for you by doctors who are aware that you're taking both medications. Otherwise, combining them isn't safe, especially if your body is not tolerant to such medications. Both of them can cause sedation and depression of the central nervous system, so you may inadvertently overdose. These effects can cause symptoms such as extreme drowsiness, dizziness and shallow breathing, which has the potential to be fatal. These medications also carry the risk of being habit forming. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

Am on methadone 5mg daily now doctor wants me to take butrans patch for severe back and nerve pain. Can i take them both or will i get sick? How long do i have to stop methadone before starting the butrans patch? ## Hello, Lily! How are you? No, you usually can't take anything else with the Butrans, because the Buprenorphine in it tends to cling stronger to your opiate receptors and prevent other opiates from having any effect. And unless your doctor has specified otherwise, you need to be in full withdrawal from the Methadone, before starting the Butrans, otherwise, it may throw you into dangerous precipitated withdrawals due to the way it takes over the opiate receptors. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may... ...

On 60mg. of methadone. Want to due a taper of 5mg. per day til at 30mg. Stop for two days, Then start Suboxone 8mg per day for two weeks then discontinue. Does this sound doable? ## Hello, Jencruise1! How are you? That could be too rapid of a taper for the Methadone, according to the FDA, it is highly addictive and tends to cause severe cravings and withdrawal symptoms. Additionally, waiting 2 days to take the Suboxone could be too long or too short of a time period to start it. You need to be in full withdrawal, which for some people could be 12 hours, or it may take several days. Taking it too soon could cause you to go into precipitated withdrawals, which can be very dangerous and, if you go into severe withdrawals sooner, there'd be no point in waiting longer to take it. 2 weeks... ...

Ever since the wreck he has been disoriented and confused, can't remember for very long. The long term memory is there, but short term was gone. When they transferred him to rehab, they started him on 2.5mg of methadone 4 times a day. When I questioned the nurse, she said this doctor uses methadone as a brain stimulate.
