methadone prescribing doctor in alabama

I am in desperate need to find a doctor to write me methadone for chrobic back and neck pain. Hopefully near dothan AL or near panama city fl. Ive been going to a methadone clinic because i cant find q doctor and i cannot afford the clinic anymore ## Hello, Tina! How are you? I'm very sorry about your financial situation and the pain you're in. However, if you've been going to an addiction treatment clinic, then that is what is going to be listed in your medical records, even if you were going due to pain, and a regular doctor will not be able to prescribe it for you. I know the clinics are expensive and very inconvenient, but that's the way the current laws are. Doctors that aren't specially trained to treat addiction can only prescribe it for pain and once someone ...

Dr has quit PM and can’t find a doc in or around Houston

My pain management doctor will no longer practice PM and the doctor he referred his patients to will not take me because he said he was an interventional doc and there isn’t anything he can do for me. I have been taking 20 mg methadone 2x a day and 30 mg oxycodone 3x a day for breakthrough. He obviously didn’t want to take me as a patient due to my meds. I live in Houston but will travel to Dallas, San Antonio, Austin or anywhere within 250 miles. I have been in chronic pain many years. I would be so very greatful for help. I can’t find any doctor in H town that will take over my PM. Thanks in Advance ## Hello, I don't live in your area but I can at least give you a link to an website that lists all the doctors in your area and from there you might find one that wo...

Causes of constant low blood sugar

I'm having severe symptoms daily sometimes several times a day for low blood sugar. What can cause this? The only other meds taken daily are omeprazole 40 mg and methadone 100 mg. ## Hello Barry, This could potentially be a very serious problem and honestly you should see a doctor about this asap. There are a number of reasons that you could be experiencing low blood sugar but not the least of which could potentially be diabetes.

Need a doctor who will take over my previous prescriptions in Sacramento

I've been on methadone for 7 years and got off of it with suboxone for 5 years and it was the most miserable five years of my life so getting back on methadone at a methadone clinic is totally different than it used to be seven years ago so I was wondering if anybody knew a doctor in Sacramento who could prescribe methadone not that I abused it but my quality of life is a lot better on a stable dose of methadone can help me, the clinic are a joke and I will never get take homes because I am prescribed benzoz, so I need a doc who can take over my medical records and prescribe me the meds I have been on for 9 years. Anyone in Sacramento who gets methadone prescriptions from a doc please get back to me so I don't have to deal with this shady clinic anymore. {edited for privacy}. Th...

methadone withdrawal support

I am I Jessup and would like to know the best over the counter med to help with my methadone withdrawals and pain. Pls I have little money no insurance and hurt like never before. I'm determined to be 100 clean ## I hate to tell you this but nothing will stop your withdrawls from methadone. The only thing that may help you is ibuprofen for the fevers. I went to a physicians assistant who prescribed me gabapentin (which i am alergic to)and clonidine which only lowers your blood pressure. I am on 18 days without methadone 80mgs a day or more depending on the day and the withdrawls the first week and a half are pure hell!.... I'm feeling better in some ways but still feel paralyzed with fear whenever I have to go somewhere. Work has been extremely difficult. Nobody to take care of ...

How long does it take for methadone to get out of your body after taking 60mg every day for six years?

I've been going to pain management for over six years now. The main doctor over all of his pain management centers got into trouble and decided to take everyone off of methadone and fentanyl. Well I was on 60mg a day for six years. They have been doing a medication rotation on me since then. This is the first month they took the last 30mg of methadone away from me. I am on 40mg of oxycontin three times a day and 15 mg of oxycodone three times a day for breakthrough pain. I'm sure I will have a urine done next month. Should I be clean of methadone since it has had six years to build up in my system or will I test positive for a couple months? I really need to know what to look for after this drug test and I need to know if the methadone will be out of my system... I don't wan...

If i take 130mg of methadone a day will a 60mg morphine sulfate help get me thru one day

I go to a methadone program and have for about 4 years .Ive recently had the flu which causedme to vomit up my methadone (I get 5 take home bottles a week) tried taking another bottle and threw up again im feeling sick from not taking it so I took a 60mg morphine sulfate pill,will this help at all? ## It may help stave off the worst of the withdrawals you could experience, since it is also a narcotic. However, before doing so in the future, you really should call the doctor or clinic you are working with and get their advice, first. Taking another narcotic may not be approved and might get you kicked out of the Methadone program. How are you feeling now? ## Because of a heart problem my wife was taken off 150 mg per day immediately and it was replaced by morphine. Dr. said 20 mg morphin...

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...

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...

can i get into a methadone treatment center with it in my system

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. U/A's, ect, if you have anything in your system you're in trouble,...

can i take methadone with adderall

can you take methadone while taking adderall? ## Hi Danny, Based on my research there are no drug interactions found between Methadone and Adderall. 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. On a side note, there are interactions found between certain foods or drinks and both of your medications: Regarding Methadone, it states that co-administration with grapefruit juice may increase the plasma concentrations of the drug. (So you'll want to try and avoid drinking this when your taking methadone). Regarding Adderall, it states to generally avoid alcohol, as it may potentiate the cardiovascular effects of amphetamines (although the exact mechanism of interaction is unk...

can i take methadone with suboxone

I am having some serious withdrawals this early morning. I just took an 8 mg sub at 4 am and i wanna go to the methadone clinic at 5 am will I be able to take a dose of methadone at that time or will it not mix well with the suboxone strip? ## No, you'll need to be off the Suboxone for about 72 hours, before you can take Methadone, or it won't work. The Buprenorphine in it takes a stronger hold on the opiate receptors than the others do, plus the Naloxone neutralizes other opiates. 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. Is there anything else I can help with? ## No, you will go through precipitated withdrawals and feel like you are ...

help needing methadone doctor in tampa fl

My husband and I just moved to Valrico, FL and I'm looking for a doctor that would help with his methadone maintaince. My husband is taking 150mg and has to go all the way to tampa everyday. the problem is he is starting to work early mornings and by the time he gets a ride and comes back he is barley making it to work on time(if traffic is good).

Methadone pills asc 116

How long do these pills last? I'm on 100mgs of pink liquid methadone from a clinic & I also got the tablets, so do I take all 10 pills at once if a 100mgs??? I don't know. Is it ok to take liquid & pills??? I need to know right away, I'm in withdrawal bad. HELP ME ASAP. How long do the asc 116 last? Thanks in advance. ## If the pills are 10mgs than yes you take 10 so it would then be the equivalent of what you get at the clinic but I suggest you keep going to the clinic and just save those for an emergency like a day you can't go in and get medicated or something like that. ## NO NO I don't think so - PLEASE DOUBLE CHECK what your exact dose of the liquid is at the clinic! It could very well be 10mg/ml and you could seriously risk overdosing yourself by takin...
