What cold medicine can I take with Methadone?

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!!! ## I had a chance to look at the UCLA Health drug interactions list between Methadone and Nyquil. Unfortunately it lists a number of interactions which would likely deem the combination unsafe. This is because of the ingredients contained inside Nyquil (Acetaminophen, Dextromethorphan, Doxylamine Succinate, Alcohol, and more). 1. Methadone w/ Doxylamine, MODERATE interaction: "Concomitant use of opioid agonists with doxylamine may cause excessive sedation and somnolence. Limit the use of opioid pain medications with doxylamine to only pa...

suboxone/personality change

Since my son started taking suboxone, he has developed hatred for me. We have always been very close, but now he is verbally abusive. It is only when he takes the drug. I should add, he sometimes drinks beer while on it. Has anyone else experienced this? ## He's taking too much !! I've felt the exact same way when taking more than 12mg. I'm on 6mg and feel great. I don't think the beer worsens the suboxone, but it doesn't help. I'd suggest he lower his suboxone. Or, instead of taking it all at once, take half in the a.m., half in the evening. good luck ! ## my friend has been taking 8mg 4 times a day for about 4 months. Just this week his behavior went off the wall, he is like a different person. Can he be having a reaction to this medication. He has been complai...

Methadone to ms continue conversion

I worked with hospice for many years . If we changed pt from methadone to ms it was calculated at a 10/1 ratio. I was on 30 mg of methadone but due to prolong q wave cardiologist felt med needed changed. I was put on Ms and med tech argued that is a one to one conversion so my dose went up. When did conversion change and why am I in such withdraw and severe pain. ## Unfortunately, there is no definitive conversion between Methadone, and other opiates. However, the current ratio used is 1 to 4.7, this is taken from the NCBI Journal of Palliative Medicine. You may not be on the correct dose, at this time. Have you informed your doctor about the problems you're experiencing? The FDA warns that opioids carry the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, di...

Type 1 diabetic needing subutex

I'm a sever type 1 diabetic and have been on and off suboxone close to four years. Everytime I'm on the suboxone my sugar wants to spike up on me and is pretty hard to get under control! I did some research and their is an artificial sweetner in it. You wouldn't think that would cause it but studies have shown it can!! Not to mention the headaches and horrible stomach problems! It also makes me feel like I'm in a fog when I'm taking it. I honestly would like to try the subutex but don't know of any drs. I'm from around Knoxville Tn if their is anyone around here that can help...plz!! ## Hello, Jessica! How are you? You could also try asking for a different form of the Suboxone, for instance, if you were taking the tablet, you could try asking them to prescrib...

Rhodes/Purdue buprenorphine hcl 8mg RP b8 vs Roxanne 54 411

I have made the switch from the 8mg films to 8mg buprenorphine tablets only. With all the research I've done and experience I do my best to stay away from actavis mylan and nowadays sandoz. I noticed everyone has enjoyed the Roxanne now westward generics amongst hi-tech coming in second/mylan. I have no experience with mylan bup and don't want to take the risk even as mylan has always been a waste imo. I'm not a fan of allergan (actavis) taking over watson so depending on the drug dispenses I most stay away. There are as of now 7 manufacturers of generic buprenorphine hcl 8mg (generic subutex). They are in order of my preferred with not much experience except with brand name: *roxanne (now westward pharma)- 54 411 *hi tech- 8 ^(arrow) *mylan- M924 *teva (allergen/activas own...

I am on 2 1/2 strips a day and my doctor has been wanting to lower my dose however I have so much going on that I am really nervous to do so. I have lately been dealing with my daughter on my own her father just didn't show me the respect I deserved and he wasn't willing to work to support our daughter so we separated and now I am left on my own with all the finances out daughter and looking for employment which this all just recently happened since the last time I saw my doctor on top of that my daughter has medical issues due...

Subutex wax squares

Not being able to afford a Dr.-a friend of mine sometimes gives me acouple of her subutex.(like suboxone).They come in a pack where you have to punch out each square..like gum.They are square,and see-through purple.The only markings are a line going down,and a line going across.Like this +, so you have 4 little squares.But today when she gave me some, they looked the same,except there was only ONE line down the middle.I don't know why.Is anyone familiar with this drug-and seen them with just the one line down the middle? I cant find an image of subutex wax squares anywhere on-line so far. Thank you. ## Are you sure they are Subutex? It isn't even listed as being available in this type of formulation in the U.S. It is actually only available as an injection, tablets and film shee...

Updated in Subutex

I have been on subutex for 9 months now. But i have a very big problem next month k mart pharmacy will no longer carry subutex. I live in the tri cities in tn. I have called about 35 pharmacies around they either do not take new people getting subutex or do not carry it at all. I have no insurance i found 1 that cost 340 which is way more than the 215 i paid at k mart. Also some pharmacies I know only carry the small ones which to me do not work as good as the bigger ones. Huge difference i go back the 8th next month so if there is anyone that knows of a good pharmacy in my area your help would be greatly appreciated ## Hello, Scott! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem you're having. However, if you've called the pharmacies, then you've likely not actually received ...

Meijer pharmacy subutex 54 411 availability

Does meijer pharmacy carry 54-411 subutex or M 9-24? Walmart was out of 54-411 and I cant take the M 9-24 version. The pharmacy wouldn't tell me. ## Yes you can, you just don't want to. This is a perfect example of why there are so many rules and laws and restrictions because people abuse, break the rules, and don't do what they're supposed to. It doesn't matter what a Subutex looks like. Period. They all do the same thing unless you are administering your medication intravenously, in which case eventually you will get caught and you will lose your doctor. Most abusers want the 54s. It's just like when I see people say they're allergic to orange ones and small ones, LMFAO. They're literally the same thing, same mlg, same ingredient, just look different. I...

Did They Stop Making The Roxane 54 411 Buprenorphine?

I have been getting the generic Subutex Roxane brand 54 411 Buprenorphine tablets for months now from Walmart pharmacy and the past two times I've gotten my prescription filled there, I was given a different generic made by Hi Tech with an 8 and an arrow. I asked them why the change because those little tablets just are not the same and they said the Roxane ones could not be ordered. I called around to other pharmacies I have gotten my prescription filled at before also and was also told that the Mylan M 924s can no longer be ordered either. What's going on with the Roxane and Mylan Buprenorphine tablets? Did they stop making them or is there some kind of shortage? I had the choice of getting the small Hi Tech tablets which seem alot less potent than the Roxane or the Actavis 15...

buprenorphine 8mg with 460 imprint vs 54 411

Does the buprenorphine 8mg 460 work as well as 54 411's? I'm curious as I've seen other imprints, just not 460. Please let me know if they are better or worse. ## BETTER. The only thing is they taste a tad worse. I use 1mg a day and these are slightly smaller and worker slightly better in my opinion. ## Among other influential factors, some people may respond better or worse to the different binders/fillers upon switching from one tablet to the next. That said, the only true way to compare efficacy is to go through trial and error with both versions yourself and not solely based off someone else's feedback. Inactive ingredients in the 460 pill are: Lactose Monohydrate, Mannitol, Povidones, Anhydrous Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate, Butylated Hydroxyanisole, Magnesium Stearat...

Roxane Buprenorphine

I had the same issue. I called CVS today and was told if i bring the paper script in, they will order the Roxanne 54 411 vs. the Mylans. There is a difference and I don't care what anyone says. Usually those who don't take the RX have the most advise. I don't know what is going on with ROXANNE BUP., but I bet its about money. The pharmacies give addicts crap cuz who cares....Stand up and order the Roxanes and tell them the other ones don't work! ## It is known that the inactive ingredients do affect some people, and can cause side effect issues. Science Translational Medicine, publishers of Science magazine, published an article on this on March 13, 2019. This article mainly covers the experience of adverse reactions, which in turn, could make it seem a medication isn...

Are there any Doctors who prescribe methadone maintanance in Northern Ca?

I am addicted to H and Oxys and have been purchasing Methadone pills on the black market. Are there any Docs in Northern California who prescribe methadone ?? Need help. ## Hello, Mrtoes! How are you? Regular doctors aren't allowed to prescribe it for addiction/maintenance. Under the current laws, it can only be given for that in a clinical setting by those that have been specially trained in its use for such. Thus, you're only solution is to go to a Methadone clinic. Learn more Methadone details here. Since it is a very potent opiate, it also has the potential to be habit forming, so it must be used very carefully, it can also cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Can you post back with your nearest major city? If so, someone may...

Prescribed Methadone for Chronic pain, how long would it take for percocet to get out of my system if used just once (prescription was stolen)

I have a script for methadone for chronic pain and have been on vacation, well someone was nice enough to steal my last two days worth of meds here on vaca, well my partner has 15 mg oxycodone that I can take to help me thru till we get home yet I am weary due to my doc appt in ten days, will a days worth of perks be gone in ten days not using them on a reg basis? Or should I try n tough it out. ## Most narcotics are out of your system, for a standard urine test, within 4 to 5 days after taking them. However, you could run into a problem with not having the Methadone in your system on the test, as most doctors use these tests to make sure someone is actually taking their prescription medication and not selling it. Your best bet would be to report the theft to your doctor, immediately. A...
