How long do you feel rotten after stopping Methadone?

Thank you. ## I went through the same thing your going through recently.Everybody is different I was on 80mgs and quit without a taper it took about a month for me to feel physically ok.you are almost there stay strong,take it one day at a time.You should be very proud of yourself for making it this far,try to use that as motivation,good luck.hit me back if you need help. ## If possible ask to switch to liquid easier to reduce and taper down as low as possible. i have been taking self down from 45 mg dose i have a lengthy opiate add...

I dropped my whole bottle of methadone in a glass of coke how can I get it out

I dropped a 40 methadone in a glass of coke . What can I do .. I really them for my pain ## Drink the coke...or is there something here I am not catching? ## You dropped multiple Methadone tablets, or just one? If it's just the one dose, then I believe Art is spot on, it's not going to turn into a dangerous substance, just because it got mixed into coke. If it's multiple doses, then you can't do that, because you'd be getting too much at once and, if that's the case, you'll need to contact your doctor or clinic. Learn more Methadone details here. ## There are 40 tablets in there ## I just have to ask. How did you manage to "drop" them ALL into the coke? I mean you would almost have to work at getting that many to magically drop in that opening! What g...

methadone dr

i'm looking 4 a dr who can & will prescribe methadone i've been on 9yrs for chronic pain but cannot find new dr. is buying on the internet from out of country all i can do? i live in greenwood in ## Hello, Julie! How are you? There are 2 reasons you may be having a problem finding a new doctor. The first is if you're calling new doctors and asking them if they'll prescribe it, they will view that as drug seeking behavior and, in most cases, they won't even let you get in the door. And the next also has to do with asking them about, if they possibly think it's for addiction treatment, they have to say no, since private doctors aren't allowed to prescribe it for that. In other worse, regardless of which one is applicable, you need to just set up an appointm...

methodone withdrawal

I was at 90 mg of meth and goin to clinic everyday and sweating/hiding it from family/friends for two years. My advice, get some benzos legally to help with the withdrwl. Mixing them can be dangerous:so don't! Go cold turkey IT DOES NOT LAST LONG. Trust me 3 days physically; sweating,leg cramps, etc but I PROMISE after day 3 or 4 it is all MENTAL! These clinics sell a product, its a business to them;::: SUBOXONE is just a transfer of addiction. Attend AA meeting I do. Cold turkey feels like ur goin to go but i PROMISE its all MENTAL. Get someone to support u.won't die! Its not alcohol or beno withdrawal. JUST TRUST ME.not saying its fun but it it DOABLE... I'm 23 days cold turkey and I count every one! ## Nic, Are you a doctor? If you aren't please don't give out dan...

Question about Methadone for Pain Management

Dear MedsChat Community, I just have one specific question, so this will be short. Why are Pain Management physicians so quick to prescribe Methadone, over any other narcotic, if they already know beforehand just how incredibly hard it will be to get off it--if ever? Do they have a hidden agenda? I will greatly appreciate any and all responses! Thank you all so much!! ## I believe the government is a bit more lenient on methadone docs, because it is not a drug of abuse. Just a guess, but where I live, pharmacies can be worse than docs. ## Hello Glenn, my experience as a lay person for 27+ years in pain management around people who have taken methadone causes them to not be able to feel the effects of other opiates and abuse other opiates. To me this would be the main reason doctors woul...

Methadone for Pain Management

I am taking 60mg of methadone a day for pain management, given to me by a rheumatologist in Pa. We are moving to NJ. Will it be hard to find a doctor in NJ that will prescribe it for me there? I have been on it for about 6 years. I also take Percocet 10/325 for breakthrough pain. ## I am not sure how hard or easy it will be to find someone, some doctors are more understanding and liberal than others. The best advice I can give you is to make sure you take a complete copy of your medical records from your current doctor with you. By doing this you make sure they get the full records of all current tests and prescribing information and you also ensure that they get all of the information and nothing is lost or left out during a records transfer.

Methadone dosage for dogs in pain

How much liquid methadone can i give to my 80 lb dog by mouth? I know that vets have given dogs methadone for pain but I just don't understand when they say you give them 0.1- 0.5 ml per kg.... Can you break it down for me in milligrams per lb if possible please? ## The information below may serve as a general guideline based on the details provided in your post. However because you didn't mention what dose of methadone your pet is prescribed [it should state on the Rx label], there's no way for me to assume how many milligrams are in a 0.1 or 0.5mL serving. That said, I would still encourage you to discuss this with the prescribing veterinarian just to be on the safe side. 1 kg = 2.2 lbs So it would be translated to 0.1mL per 2.2 lbs or 0.5mL per 2.2 lbs 2.2 lbs goes into 8...

Drastic drop in Methadone dosage

I’ve really been struggling when my methadone dose went from 100 mg to 40mg. Barely does anything except I’m not violently ill. I have this "screw it all" attitude and am taking other narcotics instead. Not easy to find. My question is...what can I do to get decently priced help? Any ideas? ## Get on subutex.....or “generic Buprenorphine” 8mg ....I was on 40mg of methadone 4x a day and got off it in one day with zero feelings of uncomfortable withdrawls. Don’t know how but methadone made me feel horrible every morning so I switched and life is so much better ## First, why the big drop. On a clinic? ## That is a pretty drop in dosage.Was it your idea or a disaplinary detox. The only thing that will help now is either more done or try and get on subux...

Nitrofur-Macr and Methadone interactions

Hi. I've just been prescribed Nitrofur-Macr 100mg for a persistant bladder/Urinary tract infection which has been making me sick to my stomach. I'm worried about what the side effects are, especially when mixing it with methadone. Just want to know if anyone else has experienced this. Thanks. ## Based on my research there are no drug interactions found between Nitrofur-Macro and Methadone. This does not necessarily mean no interactions exist, but my sources state that every effort has been made to ensure that the information provided is accurate. With that said, because I am not a doctor, the most I can tell you is that from what I've read, these two medications are regarded as being safe to take together and shouldn't present any problems outside of the normal side effe...

Methadone and Garcinia Cambogia

I have been on methadone for 10 years for fibro. I take 60-100 mgs a day. I have recently begun taking garcinia cambogia, green coffee bean and raspberry ketones for weight loss. Though they have been working, (I've lost 20 lbs) I've noticed about 1-2 hrs after taking them I start to withdraw. It doesn't matter if it's been 2 hrs or 10 hrs since my last methadone dose, my body acts like it's been 14+hrs as the anxiety clamps on like a vice and the nose turns into a faucet. Does anyone know if there is a withdrawal interaction or if this is just coincidence and I got a bad batch of methadone? ## I have noticed the same thing. Two times now, after taking this supplement for 4-7 days, I have come into a debilitating withdrawal. I was searching online to see if others ha...

Doctors in Michigan that prescribe methadone

I'm interested in finding a private doctor's office (not a clinic) that will prescribe methadone. I can't afford these clinics! Does anyone know of a doctor??? ## I am a full time student and a single mother, I need assistance in finding a doctor who prescribes methadone because with my schedule and transportation I cannot go to the Methadone Clinic anymore. ## Katy did What do you take methadone for? If you take it for opiate addiction, you won';t be able to find a doctor to prescribe it for you because a doctor can only write it for chronic pain. As for money, by the time you pay to see a doctor (Pain managment is a specialty) it will cost you more than going to the clinic. Most pain managment doctors charge $100.00+ each month plus the medication, and another problem ...

does methadone wear off if you sleep

I take 70mg of methadone every morning as maintenance to stay off of H. Sometimes I get tired and want to take a nap and there have been a few times that I have taken a nap in the past. Those few times when I woke up I felt like I had not had any methadone that day. Does methadone wear off when I go to sleep and why does it feel like I haven't had any even if I take a nap only 2 hours after taking it? ## Hello, Chrissy! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. No, it shouldn't do that. Did you take any other medications at that time? Did you do anything else different? Does anyone know more about this? I've heard of other medications affecting it, but not sleeping. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may c...

private Dr to prescribe methadone in Montana

I live in the Flathead Valley in Montana and have been going to the most horrible pain clinic for the past 3 years. Out of no were I have been accused of selling my meds and now have to come in once a month for office visits and take drug urine tests.

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.

Methadone is not working the way I thought it would

I've been going to the clinic now for a little over a month and my current dose is 100mg a day. I'm going up another ten tomorrow. I have had no luck with getting to a dose that works all day. I hear people always saying how great it works and how it fixes everything but thats not the story for me.

30 mg methadone vs oxycodone (equivalency)

I'd like to know how much stronger in milligrams the difference is between 30 mg of Methadone and 30 mg of Oxycodone? Of course, the Methadone always worked better and the Oxycodone, same dosage, is not nearly as strong. How does one figure that out? ## Each 30mgs of Oxycodone is equivalent to approximately 6mgs of Methadone, so yes, the Methadone is much stronger. The FDA warns that these medications carry the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with?

Tapering down from liquid Methadone 50ml

Hi I'm Jason. I'm currently on 50ml of liquid methadone for opiate addiction. I really want to detox off this poison. I've just moved 14 miles to West London in England UK, it's a great move as I was living in a room in Tottenham North London, which was a complete and utter s***hole, excuse my French. My mental health really went out the window and I abused drugs most days and nights, as I was surrounded by it in my flat. There was even a drug dealer and everyone I knew took these drugs, it was hell. Anyway I'm now after 4 years alone again in a beautiful 1 bedroom flat that's all mine. No one knows me. I don't touch drugs but I'm still on 50 ml of methadone. So I'm asking you guys what's the least dangerous way to cut down and get off this stuff,...
