Liquid Methadone dose 70Mg once a day
13 Replies RSS Share
I currently take 70mgs of liquid Methadone once a day, but I used to take two 10mg tablets of Methadone twice a day. Since I have been taking the liquid I have went from 40mg a day to 100mg a day in just over three months, however I have decreased my dose to 70mg over the past few months because I was worried to be at such a high dose so fast. When I was taking the tablets I stayed at a total of 40mg in a day comfortably for six months, until I found a place in town that would keep me on methadone because I was traveling out of town just to pick up that prescription. The place I go to now prefers prescribing liquid and only one large dose every 24hrs, I don't think the liquid is as effective as the tablets and I also don't feel that one dose last 24hrs, that is the reason my dos...

I'm having surgery for knee replacement and this is the first time I've had surgery and general anaesthetic while on methadone. Can anyone advise me about the safety of this and how they will treat post-operative pain? ## I have had two surgerys while on methadone, you will be fine they gave me percocet for pain and it took the edge off which is what it should do, alot of people think they should be pain free after a surgrey while taking pain pills but that is not the case hope all goes well ## Hello. If you are on methadone maintenance for opiate addiction, you will need to tell the surgon so he/she knows how to treat your pain and your general sedation. Methadone won't help your post op pain, so he/she will have to prescribe another type of painkiller. One of the reasons i...

Methadone for pain control
12 Replies RSS Share
How well does methadone work for chronic pain management? I went from 10 mg oxycodone then dropped down to 7.5 mg hydrocodone and my pain is totally out of control. I have no relief. I am out of options except methadone or Suboxone. Please help. ## I was taking 10 mg oxycodone 4 times a day. I was forced to go to PM for my pain and got prescribed 7.5 hydrocodone 3 times a day, had to agree to mbnb injections if I wanted my meds. All I need is my pain controlled to get some quality of life back so I'm thinking maybe I should try methadone if it would help me.

found a small tan and beige capsule on the floor. What is it? ## Are there any letters or numbers on the capsules? That is the only way to have a definite ID, is by the drug's unique imprint code. With that said, below is an image of the well known various forms of Methadone: Does the one you have match any of the above? ## i did not know methadone come in a capsule ## Yes, that's news to me as well. Perhaps this form is available outside the United States? Does anyone know where Methadone can be obtained in a capsule form? ## It does indeed come in capsule form. It's a red and white capsule with no numbers or imprints on them. ## Why does it come in a capsule now? Is it a compound? ## Does methadone come in a yellow & white capsules with no marks on them? ## There are ...

what cold medicine can i take with methadone
3 Replies RSS Share
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!!! ## Hello, Donna! How are you? I'm sorry, but there are far too many cold remedies on the market for me to be able to check them all for possible interactions. Which one do you usually take? If you can post back with your usual choices, I'll be happy to check them for you. The FDA classifies Methadone 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. ## Nyquil is what I want to try,but worried about any reactions between N...

If U Are Prescribed Methadone Pills And You Move To A Different State Area That Does Not Have Clinics Can Still Fill Ur Script At The Local Drug Store

If u are prescribed methadone pills in SOuth Carolina and then move to Grand Rapids, MN where there is no dosing methadone clinic anywhere/ can u still get the pill form at any Hospitol and pharmacy in the area? Or is it treated just like liquid dose? Can u get methadone pills at any Hospitol or pharmacy? ## Regular doctors cannot prescribe it for addiction treatment, they can only prescribe it for pain. If you were in severe withdrawal and went to an ER, they'd have to treat you to stabilize you, but they are only required to do so, until you are out of danger and they don't have to prescribe Methadone.

It's comparable to Methadone, but much, much better. You need to find a Dr. that's qualified to prescribe it, usually a Psychiatrist is who you need to see. SUBOXONE comes in pill form. You take it 1 time a day. It's taken sublingually, (Under the Tongue). It is a VERY long lasting drug. It won't make you feel high, but it will get you "Well" it's much easier to g...

Anyone heard of methadone clinics watering down methadose?
76 Replies RSS Share
Anyone heard of methadone clinics "watering down" the methadose? There have been people at my clinic complaining of getting sick in the evening all of a sudden. ## It is more likely that they've gotten tolerant to whatever dose they are currently taking. That can happen with any medication, when you are taking it for awhile at the same dosage. There is no precise time frame, it can take years for some people and just a few months for others, it depends on their bodies. Learn more Methadone details here. Has anyone discussed it with those in charge? ## You said people complaining all of a sudden. I would have to ask approximately how many, how long have they been on their dose, and what if any other issues they might have in common. Such as alcohol, benzos, and any illicit dr...

Methadone Doctor in Austin TX
3 Replies RSS Share
Can you please help me with a name of a doctor in Austin texas that prescribes methadone? ## Hello, Theresa! How are you? I'm sorry, but there is no such thing as a Methadone doctor. For pain, any doctor can technically prescribe, but many won't due to its severe habit forming potential. If you require it for addiction treatment, then you'll have to go to a clinic, because it would be illegal for a regular doctor to prescribe it for that. 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. Can anyone recommend a good doctor in that area? ## I used to be on Methadone and Vicodin, prescribed by a family doctor. I saw him for years until he mer...

methadone
62 Replies RSS Share
anyone tell me about methadone ## Found this quote in another newsgroup: ------------ In blind trials, users who were given both drugs orally were unable to distinguish between the effects heroin and methadone. Withdrawal from heroin should be over after seven to ten days. Withdrawal from methadone though, can take up to a month or even longer. Many former heroin users have claimed that the horrors of heroin withdrawal were far less painful and difficult than withdrawal from methadone. Methadone is a synthetic drug. It was first invented in Germany during the Second World War by scientists who, having discovered pethidine some years earlier, were developing other similar compounds. The effects of methadone last longer than those of morphine-based drugs. Methadone's effects can last ...

methadones
4 Replies RSS Share
oval shaped pill ## Sorry, you have not provided enough information. This drug is available in both name brand and generic versions. There are many generic manufacturers and each one of them will make a pill that looks different. There are no rules saying that pills with the same ingredient have to look the same! The size, color, shape and imprint will all vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. The only relevant regulations from the FDA state that they must have unique imprints for identification purposes, but these will even differ by manufacturer and strength of the med. In order to identify your pill for you and tell you what it is, you need to provide the complete imprint from the pill, all letters, numbers and/or symbols that may be on it, as well as the color and shape. Then I ca...

Doctors in Louisiana that prescribe methadone for chronic pain
339 Replies RSS Share
I have been taking 120 mg of methadone for approximately 5 years. My husbands job transferred us from Florida to Louisiana where I found a pretty good pain doc. He is now running scared and wants to take me off of methadone. Methadone has given me a good quality of life; I am able to work and be a productive member of society. My doctor is unwilling or unable to assist me in finding a new doctor who will continue my meds. Oh yeah, I have been the route of blocks and injections and gotten little if any relief. I'm tired of being branded a drug seeker-I have years of medical records that back up my claims and verify the dosages that I've been on-what drug seekers have this kind of back up? I am looking for a Louisiana doctor, but am willing to travel (within reason of course). Ple...

My doctor had a stoke and was prescribing me 30 mg a day of methadone for a chronic pain syndrome..I am a 51 yr old that has never abused drugs!! Does anyone know a dr. or pain dr. that is willing to prescribe this to me..Either in Col, ohio, or Springfield ohio!! Thanks for your time!! ## You'll most likely need to see a pain management specialist, due to the new regulations that were put in place at the beginning of the year. Due to the increased rates of over prescribing and improper prescribing, the DEA and FDA are making it harder for general practitioners and surgeons to prescribe such medications for long-term use and most people that need them must be referred to pain management.

Methadone Clinic that accepts medicaid for payment

live in seminole county, Florida. I am on medicaid and want to know if there is a clinic or doctor that will accept medicaid for methadone maintenance. ## I really wish I could help, but I haven't been able to find any that are directly listed in that area, however, I will admit, I am not familiar with Florida, so there could be some places that I am missing. Have you tried asking your doctor or perhaps calling the Medicaid office to see if they have a place they can recommend? Another good place to ask would be your local hospitals, especially the social workers, they usually have listings of such places for those in need that may have trouble finding them. ## I live in Bradenton-Sarasota & I go to the PAR clinic in Bradenton. It's on US41 in a plaza where Livingston's ...

Does methadone expire?
4 Replies RSS Share
I have had liquid methadone bottles in my safe for over a year now and needed to know if they expire? ## Yes, all medications expire, but that does not mean they become dangerous, they just start to lose efficacy. Overall, the FDA advises that you dispose of them and see your doctor, if you need a new supply. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation, and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I have a bottle of methadone and it said to take it all on the 6th and I didn’t and it’s the 14th now it expires on 12/31/17 can I still take the lil bit that’s left ## I get 27 bottles to go at my clinic, all dispensed on the same date.
