I have been on methadone for 10 years for fibro. I take 60-100 mgs a day. I have recently begun taking garcinia cambogia, green coffee bean and raspberry ketones for weight loss. Though they have been working, (I've lost 20 lbs) I've noticed about 1-2 hrs after taking them I start to withdraw. It doesn't matter if it's been 2 hrs or 10 hrs since my last methadone dose, my body acts like it's been 14+hrs as the anxiety clamps on like a vice and the nose turns into a faucet. Does anyone know if there is a withdrawal interaction or if this is just coincidence and I got a bad batch of methadone?

I have noticed the same thing. Two times now, after taking this supplement for 4-7 days, I have come into a debilitating withdrawal. I was searching online to see if others have experienced the same thing, and lo and behold, there is at least one other I know of now. I think that when it comes to new supplements that are herbs, or anything beyond vitamins and minerals, I'm going to be extra safe from here on out. I broke out in a cold sweat, and my anxiety level went through the room. I had to go to the emergency room. I'm giving my supplements away.

Hi guys, Sorry to hear about your experiences with garcinia cambogia inducing methadone withdrawals.

I think one of the main concerns with trying out natural remedies is that it can often be very difficult to determine whether or not they interact with your prescription meds before making the decision to take them. This is because most 'drug interaction checkers' typically only work for comparing pharmaceutical preparations between one another, and NOT many things outside of that category.

So unless you're able to understand the pharmacology behind how something is affecting you, it would probably be wise to talk with your doctor first, just to make sure it's going to be a safe decision. Luckily it seems like you were both able to determine that it was most likely the result of garcinia cambogia and not something else, since others are also experiencing a similar reaction between the two compounds. If you'd be so kind as to post back with any details from your doctor about this, I'd be interested in knowing his/her response as well, in hopes that we'd determine what role garcinia cambogia plays when it comes to withdrawals. My theory is that perhaps the increase in metabolism is causing the methadone to go through your system at a much quicker rate than without it.

Hope this helps!

I'm on opana and oxycodone and I get the same reaction. You are not alone in this. I take the very same supplements, if not more.

It's the Methadone, which works great for pain for a few hours, but when each dosage was 'through' my system, I started to go through W/D's= 4x a day for years! Reason I got off. IT IS THE METHADONE, PERIOD.

I've been on methadone over 18years. What your taking for weight loss can make you detox in a bad way. Everyone is different, but I am hyper sensitive to all kind of over the counter as well as prescription meds including certain energy drinks etc. I'm willing to put it all on the line , if you stop taking anything other than your methadone your withdrawals will start to disappear after a week or two. good luck.

I think it recognized my opana and oxycodone for what it is (a toxin) and flushed it out of my body.

Wow! I'm in the same predicament! OK here's my situation to whom is willing to help me & give me any advice, or information. I received these supplement pills in the mail today that I ordered online called "pure Garcinia Cambogia plus "! And the reason I'm on here is because I'm currently in a treatment program & I take 150 milligram of methadone every day. So before I take the pills,I wanted to find out if they would dangerously interact with the methadone?.so see I also want to lose weight, and I was excited bout what the web site said about how these pills melt the fat away! But now I'm unsure about taking them because I don't want to fall into withdrawal, or even something worse! I want to lose weight but I just don't know what to do! Someone please Help!! what should I do?

Same thing happened to me and many others. I went into full withdrawal, goosebumps from head to toe, clothes soaked in sweat, extremely hot and cold at the same time. I got a valium drip at the emergency room, and got in trouble with the clinic because of it.

Perhaps it's just a side effect of the cambrogia. Then again, check the interactions when taking that and the methadone concurrently. Many times other meds cause a hyper metabolism when taken with opiates. For five years I was taking oxycodone 30mg every other hour to fight withdrawal...I had no idea that, that taken with phenytoin caused that reaction. Apparently neither did any of my doctors, even when I complained of withdrawal 2 hours after ingestion of oxy. Yes, look up drug/drug interactions.

I have been on methadone going on 4 years, and have gained more weight than I ever wanted too. I was so excited to try garcinia and like the others here, I too started going into withdrawal.. Whether it be speeding up metabolism or the combination just don't mix, I can't stop the methadone, so I just won't be taking the garcinia cambogia...

I was on opanas and methadone when I tried the garçinia. I went into withdraw about an hour after taking the supplement. I am staying away from it! Try vitadone or nutridone , vitamins that are solely formulated for people on these meds. Supposed to help disapate the negative side effects from the opioids. I.e. Sweating weight gain sugar cravings constipation laziness and fatigue. This is what I am trying next! I have to find a way to get rid of these extra lbs that have found my waistline from methadone?

Don't do it! I learned the hard way! Even natural substances can effect your methadone levels.
