I have been prescribed methadone since 2009 for nerve and chronic pain. I have had 7 surgeries need 2 more major surgeries, have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, degenerative disease, cervical spondylosis, and severe osteoarthritis of the joints. My doctor referred me to pain management due to personal opinion and unsure how to treat me. Have had inj's., therapy, recently my nerve burnt and received different pain medications - which none have worked or I had reactions to them. The only thing that has worked is Lyrica and Methadone. This clinic has taken me from 130 mgs to 80 mgs in a 5 month period. Ignoring my request that I still have a lot of chronic pain. I have searched and called numbers to get yet another pain management doctor and no one will keep your dosages, only weanin...

doctors who can prescribe methadone for pain management in colorado

I've been on methadone for almost 13 yrs due to a car accident when I was a teenager that left me disabled and with chronic pain. My current Dr. Received a letter from the Medical Board ( which he let me see) explaining that in order to keep prescribing methadone that he will need to get a license that will allow him too continue to perscribe this. My dr said it's became a huge hassle and that because of other patients "dr shopping" he just can't do it anymore. I've been with him for over 6 yrs! He was nice enough to give me a supply to last me a few months to give me time to find a Dr that will help me. My dr now said if by chance I'm still haveing trouble at the end of three months, he will keep helping me but he's not sure for how much longer. I'm ...

Need dr who prescribes methadone for chronic pain oklahoma

I need a Doctor in Oklahoma City that will prescribe Methadone. I've had chronic pain for most of my life. I took lortabs or similar meds for yrs. Got into a bit of trouble so got on Methadone maintenance therapy. This works for me most of the time. I'm just so tired of having to pay $240/mo for it. Plus, all the "hoops" they make u jump thru. I would be willing to drive out of town if not too far. Please help me! ## Methadone Maintance is for those addicted to opiates. It will be very difficult for you to find a pain management dr who will treat your pain when you've been in a Methadone Maintance program. Drs want copies of previous drs medical records. There is also the Prescription Monitoring Program that drs check before rxing pain meds. You also have to jump thr...

doctors who will prescribe methadone for chronic back pain in Illinois

I'm relocating to Hanover pk il I'm currently taking methadone for pain how do I find a doctor that prescribes methadone for pain that accepts medicaid in Illinois? ## Hello, Karina! How are you? Any doctor can prescribe it for pain. Due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, though, you'll need to see a pain management specialist. The easiest thing to do would be to set yourself up with a new PCP and then have them refer you to someone. 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. Can anyone suggest a good doctor in that area? ## I suggest asking your current doctor to help you find someone ## You are relocating to Chicago/Hanover Par...

Doctors in Louisiana that prescribe methadone for chronic pain

I have been taking 120 mg of methadone for approximately 5 years. My husbands job transferred us from Florida to Louisiana where I found a pretty good pain doc. He is now running scared and wants to take me off of methadone. Methadone has given me a good quality of life; I am able to work and be a productive member of society. My doctor is unwilling or unable to assist me in finding a new doctor who will continue my meds. Oh yeah, I have been the route of blocks and injections and gotten little if any relief. I'm tired of being branded a drug seeker-I have years of medical records that back up my claims and verify the dosages that I've been on-what drug seekers have this kind of back up? I am looking for a Louisiana doctor, but am willing to travel (within reason of course). Ple...

Are Doctors beginning to NOT prescribe methadone anymore for chronic pain?

I am 56 years old and am disabled due to a work-related injury therefore I am rich by no means! I have heard that they are considering taking methadone off the market due to too many overdose issues, plus people on it, get a prescription filled and sell it for profit making it even harder for folks like me who take my meds honestly as prescribed. If Methadone is removed from the market, what am I supposed to do? I already know I can not go off this stuff cold turkey and am scared. Does anyone know any doctors in the Warner Robins-Macon, GA area that prescribe Methadone ILLEGITIMATELY? I am not looking to sell meds, I just want to be sure I will not be in pain. I've been on Methadone since November 2008 and so far it works fine for me. I just neeed a backup plan just in case that doe...

Akron, Canton, Youngstown or Ohio doctors who prescribe opioids for pain

Hello. I'm in severe pain. Need doctors from Youngstown Ohio Canton Akron + Cleveland + western Pa. My doctor got arrested now I'm left with no doctor. Anyone know where I could go? Please let me know. Thank you. ## May I ask the name of the Dr you were seeing? I don't think I'm supposed to drop names here but I'd be happy to give you names of those located here. You can very likely do a Google search for pain managers in the area. Why not have your pcp refer you somewhere? You're going to need some kind of referral there's no question of that. They don't make appointments for new patients over the phone without a faxed referral and very likely will request the records come from the referring Dr. Why? They don't trust that the patient hasn't made ...

Is $400 month for methadone treatment fair or can i find cheaper?

Hi, I started going to a methadone clinic 3 months ago for opiate addiction. I am paying 98$ a week, well my sister is, bless her heart. I was wondering if this is the cheapest option for me? This includes the methadone which I am currently stable at 60mg a day. I started out looking for Suboxone doctors but the cheapest I could find was around $400 for the first visit and $300 for the next, which was 2 weeks away from the 1st. I would prefer Suboxone but am satisfied with the progress I am making with methadone at the moment. I live in the Memphis area and am looking for better options if they exist? Thank you in advance for help on this... ## I live in Jonesboro Ar. My visits are 200.00 a month zip take suboxine but now they have zubsolv which is the same drug. I heard they have a cou...

Liquid Methadone color discrepancy

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? ## I'm not sure, but it makes me wonder if perhaps they didn't mix it properly. Has he tried calling the clinic or doctor that he receives it from to ask them? What are the symptoms he's experiencing when he says he isn't feeling right? ## never heard of cloudy methadone unless juice is added.even then its not cloudy. Is this is the clear or red ...

Is it safe to take methadone with buprenorphine?

I am in pain from four surgeries and need help. ## Hi Jake, Based on my research, taking Methadone and Buprenorphine together may reduce the analgesic (pain relieving) effects of Methadone. It may also cause uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms if you have been receiving long term therapy with Methadone. It is recommended that you speak with your doctor before taking these medications together, so he/she can tell you how to avoid withdrawal symptoms. The combination may also cause side effects that negatively effect your thinking or reaction time. With that being said, I wouldn't say Methadone + Buprenorphine is "safe" to combine. Do you have any more questions? Please post back if you do! ## You can take subutex not suboxone because subutex don't have a blocker, ## Unless ...

Federal cutoff levels for drug testing

I have been going to a methadone clinic for 5 years. I WAS on a code 1 (going in 1 day a week and pick up 6 bottles) until the clinic switched lab companies. They approached me to tell me my drop came back dirty for codeine. When I looked at the levels it says 350 nanograms. They set the level at 50 nanograms. I thought 2,000 was the cutoff level. I told them I was clean and I ate Portillos hot dogs that have poppy seeds in them. They told me to stop lying and I will be returning to a code 6 (go in every day except Sunday?) So, my question is, don't they have to honor the federal guidelines that I thought were 2,000 nanograms?

How much sugar is in methadone?

I REALLY need to know how much sugar is in 120mgs of the red (cherry) liquid methadone? ## Hello, John! How are you? Who manufactures it? I need more information, in order to answer your question. 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. Is it from a clinic or pharmacy? ## The 120mg of red (cherry) liquid I get is from my clinic. The maker is Malinkrodt, and I also found out that instead of sugar it has sucralose. Can this cause headaches and any other problems? ## Oh yes, most sweeteners can do that in people that are sensitive to them. My fiancé gets dreadfully sick from anything other than just regular sugar and has been told to treat it as an allergy a...

False Positive Methadone

I am a suboxone patient, took a drug test (probably the cheap dip stick kind) and it came back positive for methadone. I haven't taken methadone for about 4 months and every drug test since then has been clean. The only things ive taken were benadryl and my subs. What can cause a false positive for methadone, and if so when they sent the remainder of my urine to the lab, it should find that i haven't taken any right? plz help. ## It might have been caused by the Buprenorphine in the Suboxone itself. On the cheaper tests, most semi-synthetic and synthetic opiates have been known to cause false positives for others. The Benadryl shouldn't cause a false positive for opiates, though it can do so for other substances. As to it being sent to the lab, the results there will really ...

positive result for methadone, could this be caused by benadryl

Does benadryl give a false positive for methadone specifically? ## Can benadryl give give a false positive for methadone ## I would like to know this also ## Benadryl absolutely cannot give a false positive for methadone. Heres why: Methadone is an opioid (synthetic opiate) and passes the blood-brain barrier, which gives one the sensation of being high. Now, benadryl (diphenhydramine) is a synthetic antihistamine, which blocks the effects of histamines by binding to special sites on cells called receptors, but its important to note that benadryl does NOT pass the blood-brain barrier. **Lastly, and most importantly, methadone cannot be detected on ANY store bought 12 panel drug test, and is very, very rarely tested for in commercial and/or government drug tests. Methadone must be specifi...

I was in a methadone treatment center. I was being lowered off methadone and I thought I was doing good, but I was sick and going through withdraws and I got methadone off the street and now I am sick if I do not have it. Can I get back into a treatment center again? I can not afford to buy it anymore, and I do not want to be sick. where can I go to get help? ## Dear Nickie, I don't see why not. Especially being u were already in a clinic and do have methadone in your system. U may have 2 do paperwork again 2 get back in. The only way a clinic can refuse u is if u have no drugs in your system. You must come up positive 4 opiates. Good Luck! ## That's why they have jobs. In australia they like playing god.
