Methadone as a Stimulant

Could someone tell me if they have ever heard of using methadone as a stimulate for memory. My boyfriend wrecked his motorcycle 1 week ago. He was just transferred to rehab because of his back and shoulder injuries and becuase of his mental state because of a concussion. Ever since the wreck he has been disoriented and confused, can't remember for very long. The long term memory is there, but short term was gone. When they transferred him to rehab, they started him on 2.5mg of methadone 4 times a day. When I questioned the nurse, she said this doctor uses methadone as a brain stimulate. I admit that since he's been there, he has started remembering things longer than about 5 or 10 minutes, but I'm still concerned about it's use and long term effects. They are giving him ...

Whatis this pill?

What mg is a large dark pink pill? ## Can anyone help me? ## Hi Hope, Would you be able to post the shape, as well as any letters / numbers / symbols imprinted on this pill ? Thanks, Roy ## There is no way to tell what this is just from the size, shape and color of the tablet. The size, shape and color mean NOTHING. IN order for us to identify it, you must post back with the imprint from the tablet.

whats in methadone

can any body tell me whats in methdone,and doses it show up on pee test as using methanphine ## Methadone is exactly what is in Methadone, there are not other ingredients except for inactive binders and fillers. This is an opiate narcotic, so no, it will not show up as Methamphetamine, but it will show up as a naroctic drug. ## I am not sure whats in it but I use to go to a pain specialist and they wanted a longer lasting pain killer cuz they didnt wanna scribe more vikoden and they put me on methadone and I swelled up with about 14 lbs of fluid and had to take fluid pills to pee it all out. Now when peeps look at my chart and they look at me funny as in a pill seeker cuz its on my allergic reaction list. I was on it for 2 weeks and had bad fluid retaining. But people look at my in a wh...

Someone told me it was Methadone I look it up and I don't think it is

round,dark blue with a capitol M' on one side and a 15 on the other ## That is a 15mg morphine pill. If it is a coated tablet, then it is controlled release. Morphine is used for moderate to severe pain and is prescribed for many things. It is a strong narcotic class II prescrption drug. This is not a generic for methadone nor is it similar to methadone. ## The question that needs to be asked here is if the M is in a square or by itself. If it is a capital M in a square then the above ID is correct, however, if the M is not in a square then that changes what the pill is and who makes it.

not one

white pill, rectangle, straight line imprint down center of one side with the number 57 on one side of the line and 71 on the other side of line, the other side of pill has a M with a box around it imprinted ## The strange imprint line is meant to be a score line to make it easier to break or cut the tablet in case you need to divide the dose. This is Methadone 10mgs, a generic for Dolophine.

Mixing Methadone with Loratabs, what are the side effects?

I would like to know if anyone knows the effects of mixing Methadone with Hydocodone? Would it be possible for someone to be delusional and hallucinate on this combination? ## Normally when you are on Methadone and need other medicine for a break thru, hydrocodone is the choice that most doctors use cause it has less interreactions than any other , it is usally better if you take them seperate and not at the same time, take your methadone then like 2 hours late take your hydrocodone, that should lessen any side effects, if you still have halucinations and delussions contact your doctor and see if there severe enough to change meds, cause it isnt un common to get some halucinations with some pain meds at first starting just monitor them and if they are severe or worry you contact your do...

54/142 ## u mean methadone? If so, that's a heroin substitute taken so you don't feel the effects of heroin withdrawal. it's a narcotic that comes in every milligram, depending on the heroin dependancy. Basically each milligram is equivalent to a dollar street worth of heroin. like 20 mg's of meth is equal to 20 dollars worth of heroin on the street. I know, my sister is going thru this.
