What cold medicine can I take with Methadone?

I am taking 70 mg daily methadone, have been going to clinic for 2 mths now. I have a severe sinus cold/infection and was wondering what OTC medication I can take without the risk of an adverse reaction? Ugh, just want to be able to breathe again!!! ## I had a chance to look at the UCLA Health drug interactions list between Methadone and Nyquil. Unfortunately it lists a number of interactions which would likely deem the combination unsafe. This is because of the ingredients contained inside Nyquil (Acetaminophen, Dextromethorphan, Doxylamine Succinate, Alcohol, and more). 1. Methadone w/ Doxylamine, MODERATE interaction: "Concomitant use of opioid agonists with doxylamine may cause excessive sedation and somnolence. Limit the use of opioid pain medications with doxylamine to only pa...

suboxone/personality change

Since my son started taking suboxone, he has developed hatred for me. We have always been very close, but now he is verbally abusive. It is only when he takes the drug. I should add, he sometimes drinks beer while on it. Has anyone else experienced this? ## He's taking too much !! I've felt the exact same way when taking more than 12mg. I'm on 6mg and feel great. I don't think the beer worsens the suboxone, but it doesn't help. I'd suggest he lower his suboxone. Or, instead of taking it all at once, take half in the a.m., half in the evening. good luck ! ## my friend has been taking 8mg 4 times a day for about 4 months. Just this week his behavior went off the wall, he is like a different person. Can he be having a reaction to this medication. He has been complai...

Methadone to ms continue conversion

I worked with hospice for many years . If we changed pt from methadone to ms it was calculated at a 10/1 ratio. I was on 30 mg of methadone but due to prolong q wave cardiologist felt med needed changed. I was put on Ms and med tech argued that is a one to one conversion so my dose went up. When did conversion change and why am I in such withdraw and severe pain. ## Unfortunately, there is no definitive conversion between Methadone, and other opiates. However, the current ratio used is 1 to 4.7, this is taken from the NCBI Journal of Palliative Medicine. You may not be on the correct dose, at this time. Have you informed your doctor about the problems you're experiencing? The FDA warns that opioids carry the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, di...

Type 1 diabetic needing subutex

I'm a sever type 1 diabetic and have been on and off suboxone close to four years. Everytime I'm on the suboxone my sugar wants to spike up on me and is pretty hard to get under control! I did some research and their is an artificial sweetner in it. You wouldn't think that would cause it but studies have shown it can!! Not to mention the headaches and horrible stomach problems! It also makes me feel like I'm in a fog when I'm taking it. I honestly would like to try the subutex but don't know of any drs. I'm from around Knoxville Tn if their is anyone around here that can help...plz!! ## Hello, Jessica! How are you? You could also try asking for a different form of the Suboxone, for instance, if you were taking the tablet, you could try asking them to prescrib...

Rhodes/Purdue buprenorphine hcl 8mg RP b8 vs Roxanne 54 411

I have made the switch from the 8mg films to 8mg buprenorphine tablets only. With all the research I've done and experience I do my best to stay away from actavis mylan and nowadays sandoz. I noticed everyone has enjoyed the Roxanne now westward generics amongst hi-tech coming in second/mylan. I have no experience with mylan bup and don't want to take the risk even as mylan has always been a waste imo. I'm not a fan of allergan (actavis) taking over watson so depending on the drug dispenses I most stay away. There are as of now 7 manufacturers of generic buprenorphine hcl 8mg (generic subutex). They are in order of my preferred with not much experience except with brand name: *roxanne (now westward pharma)- 54 411 *hi tech- 8 ^(arrow) *mylan- M924 *teva (allergen/activas own...

Subutex wax squares

Not being able to afford a Dr.-a friend of mine sometimes gives me acouple of her subutex.(like suboxone).They come in a pack where you have to punch out each square..like gum.They are square,and see-through purple.The only markings are a line going down,and a line going across.Like this +, so you have 4 little squares.But today when she gave me some, they looked the same,except there was only ONE line down the middle.I don't know why.Is anyone familiar with this drug-and seen them with just the one line down the middle? I cant find an image of subutex wax squares anywhere on-line so far. Thank you. ## Are you sure they are Subutex? It isn't even listed as being available in this type of formulation in the U.S. It is actually only available as an injection, tablets and film shee...

Updated in Subutex

I have been on subutex for 9 months now. But i have a very big problem next month k mart pharmacy will no longer carry subutex. I live in the tri cities in tn. I have called about 35 pharmacies around they either do not take new people getting subutex or do not carry it at all. I have no insurance i found 1 that cost 340 which is way more than the 215 i paid at k mart. Also some pharmacies I know only carry the small ones which to me do not work as good as the bigger ones. Huge difference i go back the 8th next month so if there is anyone that knows of a good pharmacy in my area your help would be greatly appreciated ## Hello, Scott! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem you're having. However, if you've called the pharmacies, then you've likely not actually received ...
