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 pain relieving effects last about six hours after a single dose, similar to that of morphine...

find a dr in or near lancaster ohio that can prescribe liquid methadone for detox off suboxone

Hello, I am looking for a Dr in or near Lancaster Ohio that can prescribe LIQUID methadone to me to get me off Suboxone. Here is a little background. I took percocets for recreation use for just over a year. In November of this year I will have been on 24mg of Suboxone a day for 2 years. Yes I have been on the subs twice as long as my addiction lasted. Don't get me wrong subs saved my ass but I am ready to close this chapter in my life and move on. I have tried several times to taper off subs and have just accepted that I do not have the will power to do so. I am a stay at home mom w an ADHD 9 yr old and a very busy 3 year old, if I have the subs I take them. So, here's where the liquid methadone comes in. There is very little "help" here in Lancaster/Columbus Ohio unles...

replace methadone with suboxone

After taking 98 mg of methadone for the past 9 yrs, is it possible 2 switch 2 suboxone? My body was significantly abused when i was out there, lots of back injuries, no pain w/ methadone. Does suboxone do this also? I work a very physical job. ## I would definitely see a dr.... that's a high dose, it stays in your muscles and can affect your heart (it's a muscle); I thought well I can do this 3.5 yrs for pain control. I was on everything under the sun. I lost 2 yrs, no memories from all the combos, 6 spine surgeries, 4 in 7 mo.... gave up all meds and started inj's. inside joints which didn't help. Then after 15 yrs hear of nerve burns similar to the blocks but they actually go in with needles n burn your nerves; wonderful great mostly pain free. Got rid of all drugs exc...

oblong white pill with m on one side and 5771 on other

This is methadone (they call these particular ones Coffins). It is coffin shaped with an M in a square on one side and the other side is scored with 5771. Methadone is generally prescribed for opioid withdrawal symptoms, but this particular coffin methadone pill is actually prescribed for pain management. All in all, it is an opioid similar to morphine, dolophine, etc. ## I'm sorry, is the word you are trying to use here coffin? Yes, this tablet does contain 10mgs of Methadone, which is used to not only treat drug addiction, but also some cases of severe, chronic pain. Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. ## Oh and Dolophine would be the same thing, it contains Methadone as its active ingredient. ## I have seen someone insufflate methadone...

methadone and garcinia cambogia

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 ha...

Methadone pills asc 116

How long do these pills last? I'm on 100mgs of pink liquid methadone from a clinic & I also got the tablets, so do I take all 10 pills at once if a 100mgs??? I don't know. Is it ok to take liquid & pills??? I need to know right away, I'm in withdrawal bad. HELP ME ASAP. How long do the asc 116 last? Thanks in advance. ## If the pills are 10mgs than yes you take 10 so it would then be the equivalent of what you get at the clinic but I suggest you keep going to the clinic and just save those for an emergency like a day you can't go in and get medicated or something like that. ## NO NO I don't think so - PLEASE DOUBLE CHECK what your exact dose of the liquid is at the clinic! It could very well be 10mg/ml and you could seriously risk overdosing yourself by takin...

How long after taking methadone can you take suboxone?

I took 60 mgs of methadone sat morning at 8 am... today is monday 4 pm. Am I ok to take 4 mgs of suboxone today? ## It really depends on how long you have been on the methadone and the dose you are at. If your only dose was 60mgs of done sat morning and you haven't take any done before or after that I say your good. If you take 60 everyday you may want to wait day or two more. better safe than sorry...and you will be sorry. ## I took about 15 mgs of methadone for 4 days then just 5 mgs this morning at 8:30am.. Am I safe to take 2 mgs of suboxone now only being 6 hrs? I feel sick with withdrawal symptoms now anyway.. ## Jdub, NO ABSOLUTELY NOT!!! Unless you want to endure precipitated withdrawal syndrome. You must wait at least 72 to 96 hours MINIMUM to safely transition to sub. ## Y...

Methadone generics, finding a pharmacy

I have been on many different opioids for over five years after a very bad car accident. I have finally been on 60mg of methadone and was getting the mallinkrodt generic or westward pharmaceuticals but the accend generic puts me into withdrawal or I may be allergic to some filler they use but I am in tucson, az and need to find out what pharmacies to avoid or which stock anything but accend 10mg tabs now, but as the war on opioids have made for much tighter regulations I cant call and ask. They won’t say whether they do or not over the phone. Add to that even with a legit paper rx I had 2 major chains say they didn’t feel comfortable filling it because I’m “not an established patient and are not comfortable filling if I haven’t filled there before”.
