Hello, Dgmcloud! How are you doing?

Unfortunately, there is no listing of doctors according to what they will or will not prescribe that I can refer to for you. The only thing you can really do is set up an appointment with a new specialist, make sure that they get a full copy of your medical records and then go to the appointment to discuss your case with them and see what they are willing to do to help you.

However, do not ask them up front over the phone if they will prescribe it, since it is a controlled substance, they are going to see that as drug seeking behavior, so they will just tell you no and not even let you get in the door.

Hello, Viki! Did you find a place, yet?

What were you taking Methadone for?

The reason I'm asking is because if you were being treated at an addiction clinic, then that is the only place you're going to be able to go, a regular doctor won't be able to prescribe it for you. Thus, no one can make any suggestions for you, without knowing a little more information

Methadone plus Xanax equals death if abused by anyone. I read this article in my physicians private lounge which was sent to him personally in 2008. However, even though many physician discontinued prescribing the two, others have continued. Of all places I read this article which was sent to many pain management of the time. Unfortunately again many have chosen to do things their way. Ask yourself "would I walk into a house it was marked with sign clearly marked "Dangerous Dogs?": Probably not.
The second issue focused on methadone itself. Suprising enough the DEA said said methadone was offered less than adaquate pain relief if taken or injested for pain under 120mg. per day but offer great effect for those choosing to use it. The average starting dose should be between 120-150mg in any 24 hour period. The advantage being many: The truely only long lasting drug that offers a long half and this being a cheap drug to obtain at pharmacies. Regardless, I'm an avid supporter of this medicene. Like everything in life lets not take this medecine just follow the directions and understand the few who use it right should not have to suffer because some use it incorrectly.
