My husband is taking liquid methadone has been for about four years and this morning he noticed his medicine was cloudy and then he took his other doses out and found several others of his doses were too. They were filled at the same time. Is this supposed to happen? And is it common? He said he hasn't bee feeling right for the last couple of days. I am worried, has anyone have this happen to thiers? And what could cause it?

Re: Vlad (# 38)

It's 10mg per 1ml..and you can't administer any methadone pill intravenously, it would be a waste. Anyone who's on methadone or has abused drugs knows it would be pointless to even try... You act like u know so much when you have no

Well, Not sure why they're sending me these notices for posts from 2011?? But I will give you an idea of what might have happened anyway. Years ago a doctor was prescribing me 30 mg. Roxicodone and I noticed I was always getting shorted. The last time it happened I was shorted exactly 20, I don't think anyone mis-counts by 20! I called and the pharmacist got right on the phone and never questioned me or anything and said to come right back and they'll have those 20 all ready for me. Well, I figured it out, it was the pharmacist himself who was helping himself to my much needed medicine!! I suspect that this may be what happened w/ your husband's methadone. Who ever prepared it probably poured some for themselves and watered it down to fill it back to where it was supposed to be. Do NOT trust any pharmacist, they can be some of the worst addicts, I mean a pharmacist stealing pills from customers, it doesn't get any worse than that folks! Not many people count their pills when they get them but let me suggest that you start doing it now, especially in these times when doctors are in such fear of the DEA that they won't RX anything stronger than a tramadol. Incidentally, we are Not in any damn opioid epidemic anymore, the CDC wants to keep this farce going because there's a couple of real opiatephobic *****s that are in charge of the national guidelines. They are including alcohol mixed w/ other drugs in their totals for opiate related deaths!! Also, they're including heroin and fake fentanyl deaths. They have really created a disaster for people who suffer with chronic pain. Such unnecessary suffering and for what?? The opioid epidemic has been over for more than 5 yrs, how in the heck could there still be one when there aren't any doctors prescribing anything?! To the CDC, you have a LOT to answer for!

Re: Diana (# 10)

Washington State is a monthly carry state! After you reach a week of take home doses, you go next to two weeks, and the final step takes you to the full month. I believe that's the maximum set by the FEDERAL government, specifically the DEA. But each state has its own Methadone Authority, which is free to customize their own MAT guidelines, provided they are within the Federal Guidelines. In Washington, the variance in carry limits comes down to the individual clinic. For example, the MAT program operated by the County Health Department has a one week maximum for carries. But privately operated clinics, such as the one I attend, allows clients to earn the monthly privilege. They accept Medicaid for payment just like Public programs, but they are a bit more relaxed in several areas, despite being regulated and audited by the same standard. However, MAT programs only have a certain amount of room to customize their rules. Most of the guidelines of any given clinic are firmly set by the DEA and SAMHSA, and tightly regulated & monitored for compliance. For example, the UA parameters, the lock box requirements & counseling aspects, are specified by SAMHSA, and are collectively known as TIP 43. It outlines the non-negotiables that have been standardized from State to State, program to program. It also specifies the responsibility clinics have to their clients, and the rights of every client / patient when any sort of disciplinary action, conflict with clinic staff, general concern regarding policies or other grievance becomes an issue which puts the clients continued participation at risk. Methadone patients have more rights than they're often aware of, and for anyone who is facing an involuntary dose decrease, an administrative discharge or other disciplinary action, TIP 43 is the place to learn how to advocate for yourself, and where to find support when dealing with those issues. Clinics don't make a point in arming patients with the tools to challenge them, but don't allow yourself to be bullied, threatened with losing your dose, or treated unfairly, because there are laws to protect you from discrimination, and procedures that clinics must follow before taking adverse action. Google "SAMHSA TIP 43", and download it for free. And if your clinic maxes out at one week of carries, it may be worthwhile to call around and inquire into private clinics as well. I hope that helps.
