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...

methadone and garcinia cambogia
117 Replies RSS Share
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...

I have been going to a methadone clinic for over a year now, but i have been on pain killers for the past ten years of my life. I am now on a dose of 170 per day but I still experince withdrawl symptoms 12 hours after taking my dose. I take clondine at night to try to curve the symptoms but all that seems to do is make my blood pressure drop to much and i go to sleep for an hour or two and then wake up still feeling the withdrawl symtoms. I started taking Vitadone about a month ago to see if it would help but still notice no difference. I think my probelm may be I need to split dose my methadone but my clinic refuses to let me be dosed that way even though other clinics in neghboring cities do split dosing for thier patients. My counslur is now trying to not let me recieve any more incr...

Moving to Houston, Tx and looking for a doctor who will prescribe methadone. I have been on Methadone for Intractable Pain for over 10 years. I saw a psychiatrist/Intractable pain, oncologist for 8years and another for almost 8 yrs. Both doctors were in Houston, Tx.

I am moving back to Houston next month and am dreading the whole start over ordeal...PLEASE HELP LOCATE a doctor in the Houston, Tx. area ## I am also in Houston, looking for the same thing.

doctors who prescribe methadone in columbia
Post a Reply Share
Struggled with severe migraines since childhood. Double Visio, nausea, was on imitrex, torodol, topaz, too many yo name. Finally found relief with generic hydro of one, but then decided to manage everything by switching to suboxone. Since the pain factor is not effected one way or another, a friend had mentioned her chronic pain controlled by methadone. Don’t know where in Columbia SC to find a doctor or if this is some place you have to visit everyday. That would be expensive gas and interfere with my career.

Anyone heard of methadone clinics watering down methadose?
80 Replies RSS Share
Anyone heard of methadone clinics "watering down" the methadose? There have been people at my clinic complaining of getting sick in the evening all of a sudden. ## It is more likely that they've gotten tolerant to whatever dose they are currently taking. That can happen with any medication, when you are taking it for awhile at the same dosage. There is no precise time frame, it can take years for some people and just a few months for others, it depends on their bodies. Learn more Methadone details here. Has anyone discussed it with those in charge? ## You said people complaining all of a sudden. I would have to ask approximately how many, how long have they been on their dose, and what if any other issues they might have in common. Such as alcohol, benzos, and any illicit dr...

doctor that prescribes methadone for pain indiana
7 Replies RSS Share
I am in serious intractable pain that can only be treated efficaciously methadone and I need a doctor who will prescribe methadone ## Hello, Campbell! How are you? Due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, if you require such a medication on a long-term ongoing basis, you'll need to see a pain management specialist. A general practice doctor won't be able to prescribe it for you. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Have you tried pain management, yet? There is no way to guarantee that any doctor will prescribe Methadone for you, but they are specially trained in treating intractable pain. Can anyone suggest a good doctor in that ...

Methadone doctor in Louisville ky
7 Replies RSS Share
I've had chronic pain due to autoimmune diseases for several yrs. I have been seeing a PM doctor in another state but now am in Louisville, Ky staying with a family member who has cancer. I will be here indefinitely and am running into dead ends finding a doctor who is willing to see me and write my Methadone 10 mg that I take 4 x a day. Any suggestions? It is costing me $400 a month to fly round trip each month. ## What you really need to do is make an appointment with someone as a new patient, but without asking them ahead of time if they'll prescribe any certain medication. You can tell them what your health issues are, but if you ask for a particular medication, especially one like this that is a controlled substance, most doctors and their staff are taught to view that as d...

can i take methadone with adderall
76 Replies RSS Share
can you take methadone while taking adderall? ## Hi Danny, Based on my research there are no drug interactions found between Methadone and Adderall. This does not necessarily mean no interactions exist, but my sources state that every effort has been made to ensure that the information provided is accurate. On a side note, there are interactions found between certain foods or drinks and both of your medications: Regarding Methadone, it states that co-administration with grapefruit juice may increase the plasma concentrations of the drug. (So you'll want to try and avoid drinking this when your taking methadone). Regarding Adderall, it states to generally avoid alcohol, as it may potentiate the cardiovascular effects of amphetamines (although the exact mechanism of interaction is unk...
