Can I Take Methadone with klonopin

Is it safe to mix the prescribed amount of methadone with the prescribed amount of klonopin??? ## They can be used together, but it has to be done very cautiously, because mixing a Benzodiazepine with the Opioid may cause severe hypotension, respiratory depression and vasodilation. Learn more Methadone details here. Learn more Klonopin details here. Have they both been prescribed by the same doctor, so they are aware you are taking them both? ## I am on 150 milligrams of methadone and also on two milligrams per day of klonopin it seems to work well for me however it does cuz some drowsiness so yes they can be taken together just be careful because they are both pretty powerful and at first will create a buzz ## my doctor stopped my klonopin after 2 years. i used 4 1 mg pills per day. he...

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 ...

Benzodiazepines with Methadone

I'm coming off of years of benzodiazepine abuse. My methadone doesn't even affect me now. I shake as if I'm an alcoholic. I have been feeling isolated and hopeless. ## Unfortunately, since Methadone is an opioid, it doesn't always help with the withdrawals from Benzodiazepines. I am very sorry that you're miserable. How are you coming off of the Benzodiazepines? Are you tapering slowly? Coming off too fast creates the risk of your experiencing seizures, anxiety, and depression, which would be dangerous, so it is very important to taper slowly, under medical supervision.

round e 131 methadone

want to know the identity of the pill ## i want images of e 131 methadone ## Hi catfish, You mentioned that you wanted to know the identity of this pill, but you already confirmed that within the title of your thread (re: methadone)... However if I can add any validation to that, E 131 is in fact listed as Methadone (10mg), manufactured by Sandoz. I don't have a photograph to show you, but I believe the pill's National Drug Code (66689-0810) should suffice as another point of reference. I hope this helps! ## can methadone help to flush out marijuana from the body? and if so, how long will it take? ## Any photos of a methadone pill? ## Oxyctin,I just wanted to know what they look like just in case. ## Does the methadone pill imprinted E 131 have a score on the back? Or is it just...

I need to know the herb I read about in this forum to help with craving sweets and other side effects on Methadone!! PLEASE HELP!!

I was reading in this forum a week or so ago and come upon someone talking about an herb capsule that helps with methadone side effects, craving sweets, sweating and a couple of other side effects. Is there anyone that could please help me with this?? PLEASE PLEASE!! I thought I found the answers to all my prayers. Except now, I can not find the name of this herb for the life of me!

I go to a methadone clinic - will zanaflex show up on a drug screen

I go to methadone clinic, if I take zanaflex will it show on my drug screens? ## Yes sir(or mam lol) benzo but the muscle relaxer n it won't cause it's just flexirile(however u spell it). But, also b aware that there's a little pill out there that looks just like xanaflex, and ppl throw it out to ppl saying it us xanaflex, (Taking advantage of ppl) but, it's really just a muscle relaxer that's very relaxing with maybe a slight nerve med in it...but NO narcotic properties. It looks like a white football but is shaped more like a buspirone pill(the pills not the bars), so just make sure that's not whatcha got...cuz if so u don't have to worry about a d test at all lol. Hope this helps ## I'm sorry, but not sure if they do, but if it is a benzo than... ...bu...

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...

white round pill 54 142

Can you break the methadone 10mg into half?? ## Dear Samantha, yes, u can break them in half. It might b easier 2 get a pill cutter. They work great. U can get them at cvs or pretty much any pharmacy. They r sold over the counter. ## Yes as far as I know, personally have broken in half over ten years. Have chronic pain and when I was not in as much pain I often only took half (5 mg.). Contact your pharmacist first, if you call your Dr. they might decrease dose, feeling you don't need as much, I am assuming you take for pain relief. If so may days you will need dose prescribed. Wish that was my problem, after ten yrs. a new doctor said I abused, took other non-prescribed drugs and street pills. Without one blood-urine examination, so not one Dr. Will prescribe me even my meds. For Ga...

if I've been on 20mg of methadone for 3 days, will i get any withdrawls if i stop

I was taking 10mg norco 6× a day for 7 years and wanted off so my sister talked me in to getting on methadone. I've gone for 3 days and been getting 20mg a day but I don't like how it makes me feel. I feel really high on it and feel like I'm gonna pass out. So I don't want to go any more my question is will I have withdrawal from that small amount that I've been on? I've recently been told methadone withdrawal is horrible. ## Hello, Cindy! How are you feeling? You might be better off asking them to lower the dosage, rather than stopping, because yes, you aren't out of the woods for withdrawals, yet. 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 co...

Need help finding a doctor that will prescribe methadone for pain management in West Tennessee

I have a unique situation. I am a recovering addict with severe chronic pain. I have really bad scoliosis that's in my neck and back and been in several really bad car wrecks. Lets just say I'm a tree magnet when riding with other people. I have been on suboxone and subutex for the last 2 years. Before then I was going to the methadone clinic on and off for a few years but I couldn't pay for it anymore so I had to stop going. And before and during that I was going to the pain clinic for my back and neck pain. I was prescribed 120 10mg oxycodone and 120 60mg Morphine. Before all that I was Doing like 6 to 10 80mg OxyContin and 6 to 10 200mg morphine a day off the street from age 16-24. This was before I got insurance and found out I had scoliosis at the age of 24 and now abou...

Doctors Who Prescribe Methadone

I am addicted to strong pain meds and I am tired of having to come off of them, the withdrawal is awful. I went to a urgent care doc and was prescribed suboxone. I take anxiety meds too but he wants me to stop. I really need the anxiety meds but he wants me off them. How do I get him to change it from suboxone to methadone so I can take my anxiety meds? ## Legally, he can't. To get Methadone for addiction treatment in the U.S. requires that you go to an actual Methadone treating clinic, private doctors aren't allowed to prescribe it for addiction treatment. What anxiety medication do you take? Did he say why he wants you to stop taking it? ## Valium and in sc he is licensed to prescribe and treat me sumboxone is like methadone it us prescribed the same as methadone ## how about ...

Any and all info is appreciated thank you ## Rawdog I hope you are not trying to get f***ed up off your meds bro? Just saying bcuz that's what part of the problem that we have now and why the public have such a negative perception of methadone patients.They see some of us nodding off on the streets and in public places and think it's the methadone that has the person like that but it's the othe...

I take 165 mgs of methadone everyday and i have gained alot of weight since. I got Lipozene to lose the weight. Is it safe to take them together?? ## Hello, Lori! How are you? Lipozene is a supplement, not an actual medication, so it has not been studied to check for possible interactions with prescription drugs. Have you checked with your doctor? They may have some idea of whether or not it would be safe. ## I would like to know if I could take lipozene and methadone together, I am currently taking 80 mgs of methadone a day. I need to know if I could add lipozene and methadone together? ## Wondering if you ever found out an answer because I have the same question I am on 90 mg of methadone and just started taking Lipozene.

Methadone to Roxicodone

I stopped taking methadone 4 days ago; 40mg a day, and started taking roxicodone 30mg a day. I haven't had any withdrawals yet. Will I be ok? I was taking methadone from a neck injury, now I need another surgery on my neck and can't have any methadone in my system. When will it be out of my blood? I need to have a clean blood test. ## Dear Elaine, I think u r going 2 b ok. You would have felt withdrawals after 4 days. The Oxy or roxy r helping u out. B cause you're body is still getting the opiates. I'm not sure how long it takes 4 methadone 2 gat out of you're body, but, I know it has a half life and does last longer than the opiates. Maybe, 2 weeks??? Good luck ## thank you for replying , its been 20 days now an i havent had any methadone, i will never put one of t...

I Have Been Taking 30mg Of Methadone For 6 Weeks And Changed Script Now Take Percocet How Long Will It Me To Stop Having Withdrawls

I have been taking 30mg a day of methadone for 6 weeks and wanted to switch to percocet and changed script now take 45mg of percocet a day. How long will it take for me to stop having withdrawls symptoms from methadone? I am feeling sick even while I am taking the percocet. Is it possible to still go through methadone withdrawls even while you are taking the percocet? ## You should not be switching from methadone to percocet which is very addictive also. If your Dr. can perscribe suboxen try that. It helps to take away the pain of opiate withdrawl. ## I forgot to mention Suboxen can also be addictive.. ## Methadone is well known to cause withdrawals, regardless of what it is replaced with. That is why many people end up on a lifetime maintenance dose of it, rather than ever being able t...
