How are you? Well, if you're calling around to various doctors asking if they'll prescribe it, you're going to be told no from the get go. Doctors are going to see that as being drug seeking behavior. You need to set up an appointment first and then let your medical records speak for themselves, but even then you'... ...

white 10mg methadone
I'm looking for a program in the Tampa area that will allow me to take home the meds from the begining with the the purpose of weaning me down so I can switch to suboxone without major withdrawal side effects. I have some very personal reasons not to go to a place like PAR. Please help. ## Hi Mike! You would have to go to a methadone clinic to get the methadone. They will not give take homes when you first start to go to the clinic. You have to prove yourself over a period of time to get take homes. Private doctors can't prescribe methadone if you've had addiction issues. It's against the law. I was on methadone through a clinic and weaned down before I got on suboxone. You should be supervised while tapering down so you don't go through withdrawals. But, you will ha... ...

Methadone treatment
I need a clinic or doctor for methadone treatment that takes Medicare and mutual of Omaha supplement and is a pain management doctor in the Tyler. Lngview area ## Hello, Carolyn! How are you doing? You actually can't get both, so to speak. If you require Methadone treatment for drug addiction, you'll have to go to a treatment clinic, regular doctors aren't allowed to prescribe it for that….which brings me full circle to the other, if you require it for pain, a pain management specialist can't provide addiction treatment with it, it's basically one or the other. Learn more Methadone details here. 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.... ...

mass doctors
Looking for a doctor who prescribes methadone for pain in massachusetts ## Hello, Eric! How are you? I'm sorry, but there is no listing of doctors according to what they will or will not prescribe that I can refer to for you. If you require such a medication on a long-term, ongoing basis for chronic pain, you'll have to see a pain management specialist, since a PCP will no longer be able to prescribe it for you. And the only thing you can really do is set up an appointment with a specialist, make sure they receive a full copy of your current medical records, then keep the appointment so you can discuss what they will or will not do to help you. If you aren't happy with them, you'll have to try someone else. However, you can't ask about any specific medication, when y... ...

Suboxone to methadone
I was on methadone for almost 5 years. Then, I switched 2 suboxone. I was on (110) of methadone and tapered 2 (24). At that point, I was so sick with w/d symptoms. I choose 2 go on subs instead of staying on the meth and increasing, again. I've had many surgeries and medical problems. I'm also on klonopin 4 anxiety. My problem is: I still suffer from a lot of pain. I've been thinking about going back on methadone, b cause it worked better with the pain. But, I don't want 2 go through a clinic and start over, again . I had 2 weeks take homes. Does anyone know of any Doctors in Rhode Island that would prescribe it 2 me in the office?

Methadone Doctor needed in NJ
I live in Colonia NJ and I'm currently going to a clinic to get methadone. The clinic is severely interfering with my daily life. Are there any private doctors in NJ that will prescribe Methadone? I'm not looking for a suboxone doctor. Thank you ## The Methadone addiction treatment laws actually fall under federal regulations and all of them require periodic clinic visits for the patients. Private doctors are actually not allowed to prescribe it for addiction treatment, because they can't provide the same supervision and do not have the same training those in the clinic setting do. Therefore, you'll always have to use a clinic and there will always be a limited time period for which you can get take home doses. Are there any other questions or comments? ## Their is a doc... ...

How to get prescribed Subutex?
Ready to stop taking loratabs ## Have you asked your doctor about using Subutex to get off the Lortab? Most pain management doctors should have a general understanding of what you need to safely get through the withdrawal phase of such medications. In the event that you can't get Subutex, I'd even consider cutting the Lortabs into smaller fractions so you can take a partial dose to help ween down and lessen your need for more addicting meds like Subutex. I only say that because I've been reading a number of posts stating how some people use Suboxone, Subutex, & Methadone to get off one med and they ironically end up getting addicted to those one's as a result of taking them for so long. My suggestion is to take your time tapering off, but your doctor would probably h... ...

I cannot go to a clinic because I work and cat make the times in am ## Richie, it is so hard 2 find a Doctor that will give out methadone. The ones who do will only give it 4 chronic, severe pain. (They r far and few) I hate 2 say it , but, a clinic is pretty much the only place 2 get it. I went through the same thing. I was on meth b 4 subs. Did a lot of research on why Doctors won't give it out. What it comes down 2 is meth is a very strong narcotic that is highly addictive and they need 2 supervise u. ## Hello, Richie! How are you?

Methadone for Pain Management
I am taking 60mg of methadone a day for pain management, given to me by a rheumatologist in Pa. We are moving to NJ. Will it be hard to find a doctor in NJ that will prescribe it for me there? I have been on it for about 6 years. I also take Percocet 10/325 for breakthrough pain. ## I am not sure how hard or easy it will be to find someone, some doctors are more understanding and liberal than others. The best advice I can give you is to make sure you take a complete copy of your medical records from your current doctor with you. By doing this you make sure they get the full records of all current tests and prescribing information and you also ensure that they get all of the information and nothing is lost or left out during a records transfer.

Need doctor who will prescribe methodone for chronic severe pain.
I have a rare kind of polyneuropathy that affects my long nerves. I have had severe chronic pain for over 8 years. My pain doctor in Florida switched me from oxycontin to methadone because the oxycodone made it difficult to sleep. I recently moved to Mass. and so far the two doctors I've been to eliminated my breakthrough meds (oxycodone 30 mg. 4 times a day) and decreased my methadone from 140 mg a day (taken evenly in 10 mg a day) to 70 mg a day (10 mg. tabs throughout the day) and I am back to excruciating pain. I cannot work, eat a healthy diet, sleep, take care of my family, etc. Why don't any of these doctors realize that although there are risks related to taking opiates, that QUALITY of life is what is important to me? Do you know of any doctors in Mass. (Lowell area) th... ...
