methadone clinics don't care

I been going to the methadone clinic in Birmingham for 3 years,I always pay for my dose,but this one day I ask to charge and I had to damn near get on my knees and beg to charge,Three years of paying and I ask for help this one time so you think they help me,he'll no,they don't care. ## I would pay like clock work but one day i owed 7 dollars and the medicating nurse was going to refuse medicating me. But another nurse told her to go ahead and dose me. In the early days I thought methadone centers where there to help improve your life ? But when the 1980s came and Reagan cut federal money to MHMR's doctor's opened up their on private methadone clinics.That's when it became cut and dry money for methadone and if you don't like it, go back to your street drug life ...

Local doctors that prescribe methadone for pain

I am curious on any doctors that earned my local area which is comes in Michigan that will prescribe methadone for pain. I currently have a full-time job and I'm not able to go to the Victory methadone clinic due to my hours at work. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated and helpful thank you. ## Where in Michigan are you? Have you found a Dr yet? ## Unfortunately, if you have been going to a Methadone clinic, which is traditionally used for treating drug addiction, then a regular private practice physician cannot prescribe Methadone for you, regardless of why you were going there. Under current U.S. law, it is illegal for them to do so, since the fact that you were in a Methadone clinic treatment program is in your medical records. It sucks, I really hate to have to be the b...

Methadone and Thrive supplement

I'm wondering if I could take "Thrive" - the supplement that everyone is taking, because it looks like it's only vitamins? ## I was wondering if I could take thrive with methadone ## Did you ever find out if you could take thrive with methadone.? Bc I would love to know. ## Are you referring to 'Thrive' made by a company called "Le-Vel"? If so, I've looked at the nutrition facts listed on their product page for the men's multivitamin supplement and compiled what it contains below: Vitamin B1 (Thiamine) 1.4 mg 100% Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) 1.7 mg 100% Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide) 12 mg 60% Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic acid) 10 mg 100% Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine) 2 mg 100% Folic acid 800 mcg 200% Vitamin B12 100 mcg 1667% Vitamin D3 200 IU 50% Chromium (as chromi...

Methadone clinics in birmingham al

Did anyone know if the Birmingham metro methadone clinic will let you charge a dose and pay later or do you have to pay every time on time? ## I LIVE IN BIRMINGHAM BEEN IN TREATMENT 5 YEARS. Its a business,, they could care LESS if you can't pay.. You get established and later you can CHARGE ONE DOSE.. if you don't have the money then they don't care,, flop around on the sidewalk for all they care. Sign up for medicaid ,, they will pay for it. If not eligible then you are screwed, because they are so afraid the insurance companies won't reimburse at their fee of $ 14 a day , they wont take it. OBAMACARE was suppose to change that,, and when I get done with some of these clinics by suing them thru the justice dept. THEY WILL TAKE INSURANCE THEN WHEN BARACK AND HIS DEA GET...

Can You Get Addicted To Methadone

I can tell you from first hand use of Methadose 10mg use I am most definitely addicted to the Medication! I have been with out now for almost 24 hours and I have not been feeling good at all!! I must add I crush and Snort my methadose tablets which possibly leads to me being very ill with out em idk? But I'm addicted went from percocet to methadose ## Methadone is actually very well-known to be addictive and to cause severe withdrawal symptoms. While it was used to treat drug addiction, most people that have been on Methadone programs never truly end up being drug free. Almost all of them end up having to take a lifetime maintenance dose of it. Crushing and snorting the tablets is also very dangerous, but it actually doesn't make them any more addictive than they already are. Ar...

Can I Add Methadone To Quick Fix Plus Synthetic Urine

I Have my Dr's appointment today and I smoked marijuana for the last 2 weeks. Can I use quick fix plus synthetic urine and just add methadone to it? Would that work? I know he makes me pay $42 for a drug test without insurance and that the plastic cup doesn't have a temp gauge on it and I see other people's cups of pee sitting in his office so I'm guessing he doesn't send to a lab. Please any input wud be greatly appreciated. My appointment is in a few hours. ## The test show if u use synthetic urine, the only thing u can is ask someone ur close to use there urine and warm it up a little in microvave for 20 seconds. I do it every month ## You can't add methadone straight to urine of any kind as it needs to break down a specific way in your body. i don't know ...

how does methadone compare to suboxone

I take suboxone. I'm really trying to be 100% clean. I ran out of suboxone early and took 3 10mg methadone pills. I have never taken them before. I don't know if I should let them dissolve or how the mgs compare to a suboxone. I'm not looking to feel high. Just trying to end this disaster I got myself into. If anyone knows about these could you please offer advice? ## Stay with suboxon man. Don't mess with methadone I tell you it is bad. You will be on methadone for life if you keep on ## Yes, many people who take Methadone never become fully drug free, they usually end up on a lifetime maintenance dose, which is why many people prefer Suboxone, or Subutex, now. Why did you run out early? These medications are opioids that carry the risk of being habit forming, and may c...

Prescribed Methadone for Chronic pain, how long would it take for percocet to get out of my system if used just once (prescription was stolen)

I have a script for methadone for chronic pain and have been on vacation, well someone was nice enough to steal my last two days worth of meds here on vaca, well my partner has 15 mg oxycodone that I can take to help me thru till we get home yet I am weary due to my doc appt in ten days, will a days worth of perks be gone in ten days not using them on a reg basis? Or should I try n tough it out. ## Most narcotics are out of your system, for a standard urine test, within 4 to 5 days after taking them. However, you could run into a problem with not having the Methadone in your system on the test, as most doctors use these tests to make sure someone is actually taking their prescription medication and not selling it. Your best bet would be to report the theft to your doctor, immediately. A...

Chronic lower back pain and arthritis in right hip

I have chronic lower back pain and arthritis in my right hip, which causes pain that radiates into my knee. I am constantly in pain. Anyone know what my options could be? ## Paddy, I am 63yrs old and suffer what appears to be the same pain as you!! It has gotten progressively worse in last 4 yrs. It starts deep in my right hip, and continues down to my knee... The pain is terrible n will stop me in the midst of anything I'm trying to do. Sometimes the pain attacks when I'm laying in bed, n I don't understand as there's no pressure on hip when laying down. This pain occurs everyday after I'm up n on legs for over an hour. The mornings are better I believe due to methadone medication @ 90mgs I take every morning about 8am. This helps until noon n then the pain begins i...

Switching From Methadone To Suboxone

It took me a while to get down to it but I just switched from 10 mg of methadone to suboxone. How much suboxone should I have to take, and how long? Also what else can I take with the suboxone to make it easier? ## I am afraid I don't have that information for you. Doctor's that treat with Suboxone are carefully trained in its use and they have to carefully calibrate the dosage according to how much of the drug you were taking and for how long. On top of that, the tapering must be done very slowly, with the person's health and withdrawal symptoms being taken into account. For some people it can take several months, but other can take several years. Have you considered seeking medical attention? ## Iv been on the methadone program this time for a month now, and I finally got ...

Methadone causing drowsiness

I've been taking methadone for 10 months now. I'm a 200lb Male. I normally take between 50 - 150 ml per day. But the past 2 months the liquid I get has been putting me to sleep. Like I used to come home from work and relax, eat, watch tv, and chill. Well now I come home, eat, and wind up going to sleep for hours on end. Then I wake up at around 2 am, lay back down, and I fall asleep again till 6 when I get up for work. This is getting old quick. Has anyone else gone through this? By the way I dose at 7 am every day. Any and all help appreciated! ## I also should add that I go to pain management, but my doc has cut me way down, and I found a way to make it through the month by dosing with the methadone. But it's a double edged sword cause the methadone is so strong it almost ...

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...
