Quality of methadone generics

Since the drug companies had taken propoxyphene (darvocet ) off the market & my Merck Manuel read that methadone had the same chemical structure, my Dr. Had agreed to let me try methadone in a very small amount for my severe spinal pain. There was nothing left for me or most all older people to try without mental & horrible physical side affect until I started with 1/4 of 10 mg methadone 2 X a day for the 1st yr. After 5 yrs, I am on 20 mg a day & it controls my pain w/ no side effects similar to darvocet. The only generic I would settle for was the mallinckrodt generic as it was better in my opinion than ROXANNE. Then one day I went to pick up my Rx & all they could order was a new brand called Ascend. I called all 12 pharmacies in my whole county & no one has anyth...

Doctors Who Will Prescribe Pain Medication Portland Oregon

suffering from cronic headaches and neck pain due to a variety of events ## looking for a new dr. who will be willing to give me the same meds as I was taking before I moved here, they are narcotics that I take on a regualar basis for headaches and neck pain, hydro codone 10 to be exact, where I came from it is tough to find a dr. who will help you, how will I start over in Portland to find a helpful Dr.? ## I'd suggest looking for someone that specializes in pain management and making sure that they get a full copy of your medical records from your prior doctor. In many cases, if you go in asking for a specific medication they will see it as drug seeking behavior, but they can see what works for you as documented by other physicians, they are more likely to prescribe accordingly.

Methadone 10mg Asc 116

WHAT COMPANY MAKES THESE ASC 116 AND WHEN DID THEY COME OUT ON THE MARKET? ## January, 2012 ## That date is correct and the manufacturer is Ascend Laboratories, LLC. ## What is the difference between this pill and the 10mg methadone white round pill labled 54/142 and scored on the other side, is it just the manufacturer?

I dropped my whole bottle of methadone in a glass of coke how can I get it out

I dropped a 40 methadone in a glass of coke . What can I do .. I really them for my pain ## Drink the coke...or is there something here I am not catching? ## You dropped multiple Methadone tablets, or just one? If it's just the one dose, then I believe Art is spot on, it's not going to turn into a dangerous substance, just because it got mixed into coke. If it's multiple doses, then you can't do that, because you'd be getting too much at once and, if that's the case, you'll need to contact your doctor or clinic. Learn more Methadone details here. ## There are 40 tablets in there ## I just have to ask. How did you manage to "drop" them ALL into the coke? I mean you would almost have to work at getting that many to magically drop in that opening! What g...

methadone dr

i'm looking 4 a dr who can & will prescribe methadone i've been on 9yrs for chronic pain but cannot find new dr. is buying on the internet from out of country all i can do? i live in greenwood in ## Hello, Julie! How are you? There are 2 reasons you may be having a problem finding a new doctor. The first is if you're calling new doctors and asking them if they'll prescribe it, they will view that as drug seeking behavior and, in most cases, they won't even let you get in the door. And the next also has to do with asking them about, if they possibly think it's for addiction treatment, they have to say no, since private doctors aren't allowed to prescribe it for that. In other worse, regardless of which one is applicable, you need to just set up an appointm...

Question about Methadone for Pain Management

Dear MedsChat Community, I just have one specific question, so this will be short. Why are Pain Management physicians so quick to prescribe Methadone, over any other narcotic, if they already know beforehand just how incredibly hard it will be to get off it--if ever? Do they have a hidden agenda? I will greatly appreciate any and all responses! Thank you all so much!! ## I believe the government is a bit more lenient on methadone docs, because it is not a drug of abuse. Just a guess, but where I live, pharmacies can be worse than docs. ## Hello Glenn, my experience as a lay person for 27+ years in pain management around people who have taken methadone causes them to not be able to feel the effects of other opiates and abuse other opiates. To me this would be the main reason doctors woul...

Methadone for Pain Management

I am taking 60mg of methadone a day for pain management, given to me by a rheumatologist in Pa. We are moving to NJ. Will it be hard to find a doctor in NJ that will prescribe it for me there? I have been on it for about 6 years. I also take Percocet 10/325 for breakthrough pain. ## I am not sure how hard or easy it will be to find someone, some doctors are more understanding and liberal than others. The best advice I can give you is to make sure you take a complete copy of your medical records from your current doctor with you. By doing this you make sure they get the full records of all current tests and prescribing information and you also ensure that they get all of the information and nothing is lost or left out during a records transfer.
