I live in Michigan. If anyone knows could you please help me? I cant go to a clinic because i dont live near one. I live in the upper penninsula but would drive downstate to get a doctor..... ## I need a doctor who prescribes methadone or methadose in Brooklyn NY.

Methadone/Methadose discontinued?

I have been taking Methadose for 4 years and recently the shape of the pills was changed and they do not give me any pain relief. What could be the reason? The pharmacists say all other forms of Methadone and Methadose have been discontinued. Is that true? ## Well when a drug is available for generic manufacture, there are literally hundreds of companies that can make it, which you get from your pharmacy depends on which they were able to get cheapest. Now, unfortunately, even though they try to tell you that generics are exactly the same as the name brand, the truth is that they aren't! The law allows them to differ by as much as plus or minus 20% in the active ingredient, so a company that isn't really strictly picky about their products could provide a pill labeled 100mgs and...

methadose vs methadone

I have been on methadone maintenance several different times over the past twenty years. Previously, I always received powder methadone dissolved in Tang. On several occasions I found myself in a situation where my methadone was not available to me for a given period of time. While on methadone, the withdrawal symptoms did not even begin for approximately three days after ceasing administration. Now I am on a similar dose of liquid Methadose and I wake up in withdrawal every morning. What more do you need to know in order to be convinced that the two products are dissimilar? ## Methadose is just a brand name of Methadone made by Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals. No difference.

Need a chronic pain doctor

I live in Jasper, Alabama and have been on methadone for 15 years. It's the only thing that's helped during my chemo or when my ruptured disc are bothering me. The doctor I had just up and left and left all his patients hunting a new doctor. Does anyone know a doctor in or around Jasper or Birmingham that I can see that writes Methadone? ## Really, your best bet is to see a new doctor and make sure they get your medical records, so they can speak for themselves. Asking a doctor to prescribe a specific medication is often seen as being drug seeking behavior. Does anyone else have any suggestions to offer? ## Yeah, I'd definitely move from the deep South as fast as possible. Sorry about the comment Florida sounds like your closest bet to find an outpatient treatment center for...

dr. who can prescribe methadone

I have just moved to Harrisburg, PA. I found a pain management clinic who will prescribe my methadone (I have been taking Methadone for pain management for 5-6 years), however they have asked that I find another doctor. I was told by pain management clinic that I am the only patient they prescribe methadone for. Does anyone know of a doctor in the Harrisburg, PA area that prescribes methadone for pain management? ## Due to the severe addiction issues associated with it, it is not usually prescribed for pain, unless it has failed to respond to all other treatments. That said, it can be prescribed by any doctor with a valid medical license, finding one that is willing to do it, however, is going to be the tough part. When you go somewhere and are asking for a specific medication, especial...

methadone is very deadly my brother in law lost his life to methadone he is no longer alive becouse a docter priscribed it to him now hes gone i came home and found him dead on my couch ## Methadone only kills if not used properly- like most drugs. the problem is, most folks on methadone have had a street addiction and are still looking for the high. methadone does not get you high. it manages withdrawal and or maintainence for drug abusers and most recently chronic pain sufferers, because it lasts 24 hrs. hate to say it, but your brother had to die from a combination of drugs, not just methadone ## ###### I'm sorry for your loss.

Methadone Program

I am from ND and in dire need of finding a doctor who can prescribe me Methadone. I have been battling drug abuse for 10+ years and have gone through many treatment facilities. I have done my research and want to move on with my life by getting on a Methadone program. PLEASE HELP! ## The problem with Methadone is that many people never truly get drug free, even after using the treatment programs. They often end up requirng a lifetime maintenance dose of it. You may be better of with Suboxone, which is fairly new, but has helped many people taper off of and completely beat their drug addiction. It contains the opiate Buprenoprhine.

I was recently prescribed methadose for my pain. I have heard oxycontin works better for chronic pain. Does anyone know, or have had personal experience about the two drugs? Which one would be the safest for the long run? ## i have been on both pain meds(oxycontin for years, then fentanyl patch & ultimately methadose.) I strongly feel that methadone is a MUCH better pain reliever but it must not be abused. Im sure that the long term effects arent good for either but if you are seeing a Dr thats prescribing Methadone, he should also be doing regular lab test. to test your level. it can store in your fat. over all, if i had my way- id stay on methadone. its much better than oxycontin.

Methadose doctor in kissimmee that give methadose

where can i get prescrition for methadose in kissimmee fl. ## What do you need Methadose for? Do you need it for pain, or for opiate addiction? If yoou need it for addiction, just look in the yellow pages for Clinics. If you need it for pain, and you have a diagnosed reason for taking it, all you have to do is find a pain management doctor.If you have never used methadone for pain before, I doubt you can find a doctor to prescribe it until you get a diagnoises. I know a lot about this subject because I have been on methadone maintenence for 25 years, Be careful as this is a wonderful drug for pain, and addiction, but if abused, it can be deadly. Dont mix it with alcohol, benzos or any other CNS depressent. Hope this helps PHN

How long does Methadose stay in blood stream?

My husband was prescribed Methadose. How long does it stay in your blood stream? ## How long does methadose stay in your system/blodstream/body? Is methadose the same as roxicodone? ## NO they are not the same, Methadose is a time release Methadone, and Roxicodone is a regular release version of Oxycodone, they are both narcotics, but two entirely different drugs. As to how long it stays in your blood stream, that can vary depending on the dosage you are taking and how often you are taking it, so your best bet for that would be to ask your pharmacist or the prescribing doctor.

Oxycontin vs. Methadose

After car accident in '86, 3 wk coma, i tried all pain meds. found oxycontin to be the best. although it definitely does not last 12 hrs. more like 6-8. 18 yrs later, taking 400mg a day, i decided at least the pain goes with me everywhere, all the time. my life was circled around when i got my rx. the first few yrs weren't bad, but after ahole Lumbar screwed it for us people who aren't trying to get high, just manage our pain. I say manage, because no matter what you take, it will never go completely away. I describe it like your stereo being on 10, it's nerve racking & you can't even concentrate. When i was on meds it was on about a 3-4. Then i could at least hear and function somewhat. But the ever present fire was still in my head. It was getting harder & ...

Methadose and similar drug components

I was wondering if there are any drugs out their that has Medadose as one of it's componints? ## Methadose is the brand name of a drug, so this would not be the component of a different one. The active ingredient in Methadose is Morphine so that would be the component in a related drug, and yes it is available in many, by itself in both instant and controlled release forms and in some compound drugs. If, on the other hand, you are referring to Medidose, the answer is still the same, NO. This is a type of dosing system for meds, not a drug itself.
