switching to methadone after suboxone

i have been on suboxone for 2 and half yrs i have myself down from 3 8mg tabs to 3 quarters a day..i have to switch to methadone because it is cheaper my doctor said i could start the methadone now and there should not be any withdrawls..i guess i am still a little afraid of the switch anyone else done this and was you ok any advice would be very helpful honest answer please and i take the medication for a chronic back injury..thanks ## There shouldn't be any withdrawals, if you are given the correct dose of Methadone to start. 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. Have you made the switch, yet? It's worked well for some people and not for others, so...

Who can I contact to take legal actions against a methadone clinic for kicking me out of their program and refusing to medically detoxing me

I have been taking 80 mg of methadone for the past 6 months. I had 3 dirty ua's and they decided to kick me out of the program. When I asked them if they were going to medically detox me, they refused to do so. I know that this is illegal. Who can I contact to take legal action if I don't have the funds to so myself? ## Thats crazy to me.. at my clinic, dirty UAs only got you no take homes.. they didnt even lower your dose.. and the times they would start detox was only if you missed a day,and then they bring you back up.. or if they didnt get their money... then they just detox you down... i have NEVER heard of someone being kicked off for dirty tests,and especially without detoxing them first... i have heard of no detox and being kicked out if you break any serious rules.. sel...

Doctors Who Prescribe Methadone

I am addicted to strong pain meds and I am tired of having to come off of them, the withdrawal is awful. I went to a urgent care doc and was prescribed suboxone. I take anxiety meds too but he wants me to stop. I really need the anxiety meds but he wants me off them. How do I get him to change it from suboxone to methadone so I can take my anxiety meds? ## Legally, he can't. To get Methadone for addiction treatment in the U.S. requires that you go to an actual Methadone treating clinic, private doctors aren't allowed to prescribe it for addiction treatment. What anxiety medication do you take? Did he say why he wants you to stop taking it? ## Valium and in sc he is licensed to prescribe and treat me sumboxone is like methadone it us prescribed the same as methadone ## how about ...

Trying to walk off Methadone clinic

I am planning to walk off my clinic in a few days and im not to sure what my best options is. I was thinking of taking my last dose of 40mgs sundays at 7am and then narcan myself Monday am and start suboxone for a few days on Tuesday. ive tried to walk off before and I can never get past the 72 hr point to start suboxone, but also ive always been on an extremely high dose of 185-230mgs but this past year I have tapered off slowly. I am already not feeling great cause the 40mgs does not hold me. does anyone have any options or ideas for me that would be better than narcan myself or having to cold turkey for few days. ## StaceyLynn, Congratulations on taking this big step! As I'm sure you are aware Methadone is considered to be one of the most addictive substances available and the jo...

Liquid Methadone dose 70Mg once a day

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...

methadone

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 ...

False Positive Drug Test at My Methadone Clinic in Pittsburgh PA

I've been going to the same methadone clinic for 6 years. I'm on a low dose of 44mg a day and am a model patient. For me, methadone was the answer. It gave me a life. I was living a terrible life before that. I had an awful childhood, started doing drugs as a teenager, eventually got hooked on opiates and worked my way up the ladder from vicoden all the way to H. Multiple rehab and jail stints cleaned me up temporarily, but I always relapsed. The last few years I lived in hotel rooms, and did what I had to do to get money. I was miserable. Finally my boyfriend and I decided we had enough and joined a methadone clinic in a last ditch effort to end the pain of our lives. After the first 3 months I never got a dirty urine again. I earned my privileges one at a time, right on time, ...

Methadone in Mexico-Legal there?

Please help!!! Can I get methadone in Mexico with a canadian script? Anyone know? ## From my research, it appears that Methadone is illegal in Mexico. They only allow it to be used in certain extreme cases, where no other pain relief works, for AIDs patients. If you are going, you may be better served, if you are on it, to take enough of a supply with you to last for the duration of your trip. ## I'm not sure if was ILLEGAL.. but now it isn't and there are even methadone clinics in mexico... you just need a doctors letter... and don't have anything on it about drug addiction or anything about being an 'addict' past present of future... just keep it about pain managment and that if you don't take it you will get dealthy sick... so you MUST have it for daily you. y...
