ive been working to reduce my daily methadone dosage for a year now, as I've been on maintenance. I'm down from 55 mg daily to only 15mg at this point and soon enough will be free of its clutches. I've been maintaining a clean lifestyle and I don't need a lecture on addiction.
My question is--can Belviq be taken with Methadone? My doctor says it completely negates any opiate based or nRcotic pain medications in the brain. Last thing I need is to be thrown into sudden horrible withdrawals.
For those of you unfamiliar with the methadone maintenance treatment, you must taper from it verrrrry slowly because it has a half life in the brain of up to three days.
So does anyone have advice on HOW this medication works with opiate type pain medications like Vicodin, Norco, Oxycodone etc, because methadone does fall into the same category. I'll be down to 13mg this week and contributing down 2 mg at a time until I drop off.
Any advice on the Methadone (originate oain meds) to Belviq reaction?! Thank you!
