Hello. I am a 26 year old male who has been struggling with opiate addiction for about a decade. Recently I tried the suboxone program which helped to a degree, but meds were way to expensive as well as the Drs appointment. So I am looking for help with my disease and I would like to know if methadone is the right route for me to go. Thanks

Methadone does help many people and it can be cheaper than Suboxone, however, you will more than likely still have to visit a doctor or clinic regularly.

The main drawback to Methadone is that it can also be quite an addictive substance and people that is use it usually end up requiring a lifetime maintenance dose of it, while Suboxone can be slowly tapered and enable the person to eventually become completely drug free.

Have you tried consulting a doctor for advice?

Methadone is one of the cheapest pain meds out there, I have been on it for 7 years and it is very hard to come off of. I had a house fire and had to go without for almost four days and thought I was going to die. From the pain and the withdrawl. Unless you get it for pain you will have to go to a clinic. Doctors are not allowed to prescribe it for anything but pain. I hear clinics can be expensive, but if you are spending the money on drugs anyway this would be a much better route, good luck

Kim, I hope you never suffer a house fire, again, but just in case there would ever be another emergency that causes you, or anyone else to be without their needed medication, there is a solution available.

If that type of thing happens, you can go to your nearest emergency room, when you are suffering the withdrawal symptoms. I suggest taking whatever proof you have that you were under treatment, such as a report from your pharmacy, or doctors office, as well as something from the authorities showing what happened, which in your case would have been a fire report.

Such tragic accidents do happen and the doctors in your nearest ER are aware of this and can usually help. They will not do so for people that do it all the time, but if you have the proof of what happened and it's just a one time thing, they usually will.

They will especially do so, if you are in withdrawals, because when someone has been taking Methadone for so long and is without it, they could be in life threatening danger, so the doctors have to do something to help you.

Dr.s can not write out prescriptions for methadone out of a private office for dependancy...It is against the law..My brother is a dr. so sorry to tell you but they can not. They can only write it for pain control. I do not know where you are from but if there is a dr. doing that he or she is doing so illegally. I have been to many dr.s who did not want to do it period just because it was methadone and I was in a car accident with a spinal cord injury with my right leg still paralyzed and spent 1 month in the hospital after 10 hours of surgery on my back and then 2 months in a rehab to try to learn to walk. Sorry to tell you but they CAN NOT.

hi! my name is jennifer and i am going to be 28 this year..last october 4th was my 2yr anniversery at the methadone clinic...and i would recommend this to anyone who has an opiode dependency (over suboxin.) i am a 10yr. opiate vet.& currently i am@150mg/day and along w/GREAT counselors & staff the methadone clinic has made all the difference in my life

I used to be an IV user somewhere around an approximate $200/day(like 500mg shots/morphine..heroin..roxies..dilladin..fentynal..you get the picture..& thats just one single shot..i reapeated this like 4-sumtimes10 times a day.) for just ME!! i was miserable hit rock bottom and lost everything(but my husband..and hopefully some sence of dignity was still hiddin inside me). Him and I found a clinic & have been clean since.You have 2B dedicated & willing to change..you need to be patient and allow yourself time to adapt to the methadone and find your theraputic dose(thats whut they call it)but when you do..its a wonderful outcome..i have my life back, i mean its been 2yrs & STILL counting, however, i am just now re-learning about me! who i am, where ive been, where i wanna go, & so on and so forth.You must be willing to re-build yourself.. everything!-again..and all it takes is that one moment of "IM DONE!! I CAN DO THIS! I WILL DO THIS!!"and BAM!! take a look at what you've done!! :0)

Hey...does anyone know of any doctors on Long Island that prescribes methadone and hopefully takes Medicare?...I've been on it for years now after being on other heavy duty pain meds due to back injuries from a MVA and terrible arthritis and it has helped...all of sudden this past week when I went to my doctor appt. he said he couldn't prescribe methadone anymore out of the blue...I'm guessing he had problems with other patients or something but left me with no options...he's always been kind of a nasty jerk lol, and I have never been in trouble with meds and never run out early or anything like that...PLEASE HELP ASAP!

that my friend is no lie. Dr.'s are no longer allowed to write methadone for anything but pain and it is very regulated, they only write the 10mg. tablets in subsequent doses as needed for pain but are no longer allowed to write the wafers,liquid,methadose forms.

why do you jump in with the same reply constantly??????? There are doctors that can make it work on paper if they care an know your not an i**** and need help. So your brother is a doctor, whooppee....... Take a chill pill. Some people just need pointed in the right direction, and I certainly wouldn't post the Docs name and info, do it privately. I happen to know this for a fact, not lately but it does happen. I haven't needed one until recently. So now I'm here doing some reading.

Hey red215 you seem very confident about doctors that can write methadone for pain. Please enlighten me on these woderful doctors that care enough that u want to take methadone to cotrol pain and not some type of opiates that mess with your head making it impossible to work. How can u support your family with out working. Methadone takes thebpain away and keeps you straight headed so u can work and no one can tell your taking something for your pain. If u know doctors that understand that we want to work and feed our families and not be in pain then by all means share the ones u know. GOD BLESS YOU.

My friend paid $275.00 per visit. I am sorry they call it a "Participation Fee". Don't know what that means. Remember if you have a UA its cost is $290.00., They don't do a UA every time for my friend. It seems strange to me that how can you RX for narcotic (suboxone). A friend of mine goes to a pain management clinic, they tell him to come 30 min. before his appointment to fill out forms and a UA each visit before even seeing a doctor. He has said that he has seen many patients asked to leave because they came up positive on the diagnostics. A typical visit monthly to Applegate. You walk into the office the girl at the desk ask you to fill out the form. This takes about a minute. I find it strange but there is only one guest ion on the topic of drugs. It is "have you taken any drugs since your last viait.?". YES or NO. The rest of the questions are funny, like do you have problems peeing, do you poor regularly etc. etc etc. You know the form. After you fill out the form the lady at the desk will call you up to the desk. Again $275.00 or $290.00 for the UA. Again when i went with my friend, out of seven months of visits the friend was only given a UA twice. how do I know that, I have a bank statement showing "Applegate Recovery showing a charge of the $275.00 or a UA for $290.00. I always used my debit card. After you pay I don't know what happens. But I can tell you that my friend never was in the back for more than 10 minutes. So the way I see it you pay a lot of money for one thing, a RX You know I have read articles about the drug Suboxone, there are warnings it is hell on your liver, they tell you it is very important to do liver function teat regurally. My friend has been going there for years never did the doctor order a liver diagnostic. And last my friend and I were on our way for an appointment she was worried that she will not pass the UA IF they do check her. My friend and I were on our way home, I asked in the car how was your visit, for ten min. All my friend told me was my friend told the doctor that my friend was asleep on the couch and there was a lot of people around my friend partaking in Marijuana and that was why my friend came back positive. I asked what did the doctor say, my friend said the doctor said "don't worry about it", wrote the RX for Suboxone film and sent my friend on my friends way. I don't drugs, but a story like that I will not believe. To close I feel very sorry for a person who is addicted to drugs, it is a very serious disease. So here is a person trying to get off drugs and is being ripped off by a place who knows that the person needs them.
