Looking for a doctor that prescribes methadone

I want a medication that gives me everything I need to stay off opiates. I want to quit. ## Hello, Laura! How are you? You will need to go to a Methadone clinic, private practice doctors aren't allowed to prescribe it for addiction treatment. Are there any clinics in your area? The FDA classifies this medication as an opiate, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. ## She needs to go to AA/NA meetings, treating one drug with another "legal" drug is not the answer. ## Hi Laura. I am in a similar situation..and wonder if u ended up getting the help u needed..or info u needed..and wondered if u can help me out?..lmk, thx.. I appreciate any feedback..its been really hard for me..I ...

Methadone take home prescription

I have been on methadone for about 10 yrs. I hate how people treat you, the stigma, but the workers and so called nurses should treat you with some level of respect and not a junkie. I have been in recovery for years and I am so sick of being treated like someone who is the one trying to get away with certain behaviors because I am on methadone. I have had take homes which were taken from me because they said I had a call back,they had the wrong # in their system and it was my fault ,then they said i had 1 month suspension because of this.Well over a month still did not get them back.Then they said I was going to lose them any way because I did not validate a form from a doctors appointment I had.Now the doctor I have knows I am on methadone because I had to inform him so I would not lo...

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...

Methadone to subutex tomorrow

Methadone maintenance really worked well for me, in 27 years no relapses, turned my life around! Now I'm ready to put it all behind me, and methadone is so hyper controlled now. Had my last methadone dose of 27mg yesterday at 8:30am, plan to switch to subutex tomorrow. SO scared of withdrawal of any kind. Can you give me some positive encouragement?? ## There is information on the various treatment options on the NIH website. Did you doctor tell you to start taking it that soon? You can't start Subutex too soon, because doing so could cause you to go into dangerous precipitated withdrawals, you have to be in full withdrawal, before taking it. Have you started taking it, yet? If so, how are you doing? ## Be very cautious. Methadone has a long have life. I would taper down to 0mg ...

pain clinics hickory nc

I am detoxing off of methadone and ive talked with my counselor and since i have pain issues that im going to have to address because of me detoxing off of the methadone,she(counselor) told me to check out some pain clinics were they can monitor my med use,but i would really like to be sble to find a pain clinic that would maybe give me 10-20mg of methadone in pill form just for the pain instead of going back on any kind of pain medication.

Methadone withdrawal symptoms when switching from Methadone to Opana ER

I am a 55 year old man, and I have been going to a Pain Management facility for lower back pain and now even chronic Osteoarthritic shoulder pain, and have been taking 60mg of Methadone every day (10mg tablets x 2 x 3 times a day -- morning, noon & night) for the past three years. Although I've been doing well on that regimen, perhaps out of more of a psychological concern over the known "qt" (heart) effects of the drug (rather than any "real" ones), I decided to ask my doctor if I could try Opana ER (20mg every 12 hours), which I had taken once before, for a short time, at another Pain Management facility, with great success. All I'm wondering are what the withdrawal effects might be (if any) of stopping the Methadone (60mg) on a Monday, and starting the Opa...

Methadone 10mg Asc 116

WHAT COMPANY MAKES THESE ASC 116 AND WHEN DID THEY COME OUT ON THE MARKET? ## January, 2012 ## That date is correct and the manufacturer is Ascend Laboratories, LLC. ## What is the difference between this pill and the 10mg methadone white round pill labled 54/142 and scored on the other side, is it just the manufacturer? I usually get the 54/ 142 and pay about $22 for 150 I had to go to a different pharmacy this month and they gave me the ascertain 116 ones and charged me $90 for the same 150!! I mean I don't have insurance but this seems outrageous. Could it maybe just have been the pharmacy I went to? Also, I want to make sure there wont be a difference in my pain management on these pills. Thanks ## hey these are made by ascend labs and there relatively new but they work fine if ...

Doctors Who Will Prescribe Pain Medication Portland Oregon

suffering from cronic headaches and neck pain due to a variety of events ## looking for a new dr. who will be willing to give me the same meds as I was taking before I moved here, they are narcotics that I take on a regualar basis for headaches and neck pain, hydro codone 10 to be exact, where I came from it is tough to find a dr. who will help you, how will I start over in Portland to find a helpful Dr.? ## I'd suggest looking for someone that specializes in pain management and making sure that they get a full copy of your medical records from your prior doctor. In many cases, if you go in asking for a specific medication they will see it as drug seeking behavior, but they can see what works for you as documented by other physicians, they are more likely to prescribe accordingly.

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 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...

Methadone and Buspirone 10MG

My wife has panic attacks, and with some financial stress she is really having a breakdown. I've heard horror stories about benzo's and methadone so I want to hear from someone that takes them with methadone to know how safe it is. She takes 65 mil methadone daily, liquid. Anyone? ## I have been on methadone for 2 yrs now and I also take a benzo to treat sever anxiety. I am also on the patient advisory board at the methadone clinic I attend and have 6 take homes, meaning I only go to the clinic once a wk and take the rest at my home due to following the rules and being clean from all drugs, unless I am prescribed. It can be safe to take methadone and a benzo, but only if the doctor prescribing the benzo knows you're on methadone. The part that needs to be watched is to make ...

clear liquid methadone smell

I need to know if this is liquid methadone. It is a completely colorless liquid and smells minty-like. ## Hello Aj, I have found absolutely no documentation to support any brand of liquid methadone smelling "minty". Given some more context I might be able to assist you a bit better, where and how did you come across this liquid. What kind of container is it being kept in? What makes you believe that this liquid is methadone as I don't see the connection between a minty smell and methadone. I'm not trying to be rude it just is extremely difficult to give you any sort of direction only knowing that the liquid is colorless and has a mint smell. Given only this information I would have guessed mouthwash first. Get back to me if you have any additional information that you ca...

Stopping Methadone

I'm on 75 mg methadone and I want to stop on my own because it seems my counselor wants me on forever. Can I do it myself being on an anxiety med? ## T Chang, it is very difficult 4 a lot of people 2 taper off of methadone on their own. It should b done slowly and under supervision. I was on (110) of methadone and got down to (24). I was in such bad withdrawals, I thought I was going 2 die. I ended up at my Doctors in tears. He put me on suboxone that day and I felt so much better. Anyway, I REALY WOULDNT recommend u doing it your self. ## P.S. U have the right 2 get off the methadone if u want. Just let you're Doctor or counselor know when u r ready. They will taper u down the right way. So, u won't go through bad withdrawals. ## Are you on methadone or have you come off it...

10 mg methadone for bad toothache

Will 10 mg methadone work to relieve bad toothache pain? ## Hello, Eddie! How are you? It is an opiate analgesic, so it can alleviate pain just like the other opiates that are available. The FDA classifies this as 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. However, you shouldn't take it, unless your doctor has prescribed it for you, due to the danger of overdose if you aren't opiate tolerant and it's great addictive potential. Is there anything else I can help with? ## All methadone should be burned 3 times and buried. It's addictive and does nothing for pain. No more methadone should ever be produced
