Methadone Overview

Methadone, sold under the brand name Dolophine, among others, is an opioid used to treat pain and as maintenance therapy or to help with tapering in people with opioid dependence.[3] Detoxification using methadone can either be done relatively rapidly in less than a month or gradually over as long as six months.[3] While a single dose has a rapid effect, maximum effect can take five days of use.[3] The effects last about six hours after a single dose.[3] After long term use, in people with no...

I have No Support MEENING this Has Been a Part of My Life that I Don't Tell Anyone around me And I feel Lonely I don't want sympathy either.....I just want Help And support and someone to Talk to ## There are many people that have been in your shoes who are happy to help and give support. I'm also happy to chat and help, I can, I know that though the FDA warns that Methadone can habit forming, that just really doesn't totally cover it all. Are you on it for addiction, or pain? Are you on any other medications? I'm just trying to learn more about what all you are dealing with. Does anyone else have any advice to offer?

Help me find a free methadone clinic
2 Replies RSS
I called my methadone clinic and told them today was probably my last day, that i lost job and couldn't afford to pay. They charge $10 a day or pay weekly. Well all they said was, "oh im sorry u can't get no one to help u. Call me in the morning to see if you've figured anything out", not even suggesting a patient assistance program to help me with financial aid until I'm back on feet. I was shocked all they want is money. I've on this program 2 yrs doing great, and just like that my money at a stand still.... and clinic wont dose without payment. The clinic made me feel bad like oh well no money no methadone. Does anyone in Houston Tx know of a free methadone clinic that will help me? I don't wanna fall that low again. I know without my dose its a coming...

Doctors Who Prescribe Methadone
383 Replies RSS
I am addicted to strong pain meds and I am tired of having to come off of them, the withdrawal is awful. I went to a urgent care doc and was prescribed suboxone. I take anxiety meds too but he wants me to stop. I really need the anxiety meds but he wants me off them. How do I get him to change it from suboxone to methadone so I can take my anxiety meds? ## Legally, he can't. To get Methadone for addiction treatment in the U.S. requires that you go to an actual Methadone treating clinic, private doctors aren't allowed to prescribe it for addiction treatment. What anxiety medication do you take? Did he say why he wants you to stop taking it? ## Valium and in sc he is licensed to prescribe and treat me sumboxone is like methadone it us prescribed the same as methadone ## how about ...

Ive been goin to a methadone clinic thats a 180mile round trip and currently dont have a car or a way 2 get their so ive been gettin very sick from not having my meds is their any dr.s closer to bedford indiana that i could see on a monthly arrangement ive tried suboxin and it doesnt work for me! ## Hello, Jason! How are you doing? I'm very sorry about the situation you've found yourself in. However, this is not possible. Under current laws for Methadone treatment, regular doctors aren't allowed to prescribe it for addiction or maintenance. That can only be done in a clinical setting by those that have been specially trained in its use for such. Learn more Methadone details here. The best suggestion I can make is that if you're suffering from severe withdrawal, you shoul...

Methadone is the only meds that help my pain.I am in Ga and my choices are go 75 miles to a clinic and I have a young baby, so if anyone can help it would be great...also I have 2 insur. Plans or cash...if someone knows where I can go please HELP!!! ## Me too. I hated Methadone because I was prescribed it by an ***** Doctor on 120 mgs. That was for 14 yrs. The withdrawal on that amount was 3 years long. I was suicidal and not at all myself. I went back on pain meds when my neck went back to needing sx. So my new pain doc tried two different pain meds. Neither worked, you can tell in 30 days. So he said, "how about a small dose of Methadone again?". Frustrated w/ pain, I said Yes. OMGosh, it was like my body had wanted it all along. I'm on just 5mgs. 3 x a day and at 65, it w...

doctors who will prescribe methadone for pain management phoenix arizona
40 Replies RSS
I have been on methadone for about 6 years and had to start going to a maintenance clinic a few yrs ago after my pain dr lost his license here in Phoenix, Arizona. I tried going to another pain clinic after mine closed but they wanted me off the methadone and forced me to taper off of it in one week and demanded I took gabapentin which DOES NOT work and they didn't care. Anyways, I went to mmt clinic and have been there since but there are so many things wrong with it, I'd end up writing a book. Does anyone know of a pain Mgmt doc who writes methadone scripts in Metro Phoenix area? ## Unfortunately, since you've been going to the clinic, it isn't likely that you'll find a doctor that will take you on. For addiction/maintenance, the current laws will only allow it to ...

Methadone Clinic that accepts medicaid for payment
68 Replies RSS
live in seminole county, Florida. I am on medicaid and want to know if there is a clinic or doctor that will accept medicaid for methadone maintenance. ## I really wish I could help, but I haven't been able to find any that are directly listed in that area, however, I will admit, I am not familiar with Florida, so there could be some places that I am missing. Have you tried asking your doctor or perhaps calling the Medicaid office to see if they have a place they can recommend? Another good place to ask would be your local hospitals, especially the social workers, they usually have listings of such places for those in need that may have trouble finding them. ## I live in Bradenton-Sarasota & I go to the PAR clinic in Bradenton. It's on US41 in a plaza where Livingston's ...

I've had chronic pain for fifteen years and been on many types of medications, opiate and non-opiate. When I changed insurance and couldn't see my regular doctor, I ran out of fentanyl patches and oxycodone. I had never abused my medication, but after going through a few days of horrible withdrawals, I became desperate and made the dumb mistake of trying H. That was three months ago and I'm too ashamed and embarrassed to attempt to try a new pain specialist. I did go to a suboxone clinic for about a week, but the pain was too unbearable and I went back to the dope. I have really bad veins, plus I'm not good at inj's. so I have bad bruises and marks. I want to get on legitimate pain meds, even methadone if that's all I can get. I can't go on like this anymore ...

I AM RETAINING WATER & EXPERIENCE HORRIBLE CONSTIPATION...ANYONE WITH SIMILAR ISSUES OR TIPS TO HELP ME OR FIND THE CAUSE??? ## Kali, I've taken Methadone for years (chronic pain). It is a side effect of methadone on the constipation & retaining water (edema). Try taking a stool softener like colace two every night. If that don't help take a mild laxative also. On the retaining water you can take a water pill over the counter or ask your doc about taking a diuretic. Sorry I don't know about the weight gain.
