Methadone Overview

Methadone, sold under the brand name Dolophine among others, is an opioid used for opioid maintenance therapy, to help with tapering in people with opioid dependence, and for pain.[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 hour...

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...

Private Methadone Doctors In Texas

Can anyone please help me!!! I need to find a private doctor in tyler or dallas texas that prescribes methadone. I cant make it to the clinic everyday and I need help with my opiate addiction. I found suboxone doctors but they are too expensive. Please help ## Hello, Sherri! How are you? I'm sorry, but for addiction treatment, a clinic is your only option. It would be illegal for a private doctor to prescribe it for you. It is only allowed to be given in a clinical setting by those that are specially trained in its use. The FDA classifies this medication as an opiate, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. I wish I had better news for you, but I'm afraid this is the way it stands ...

Are Doctors beginning to NOT prescribe methadone anymore for chronic pain?

I am 56 years old and am disabled due to a work-related injury therefore I am rich by no means! I have heard that they are considering taking methadone off the market due to too many overdose issues, plus people on it, get a prescription filled and sell it for profit making it even harder for folks like me who take my meds honestly as prescribed. If Methadone is removed from the market, what am I supposed to do? I already know I can not go off this stuff cold turkey and am scared. Does anyone know any doctors in the Warner Robins-Macon, GA area that prescribe Methadone ILLEGITIMATELY? I am not looking to sell meds, I just want to be sure I will not be in pain. I've been on Methadone since November 2008 and so far it works fine for me. I just neeed a backup plan just in case that doe...

If I take 130mg of Methadone per day will a 60mg Morphine Sulfate help get me through one day?

I go to a methadone program and have for about 4 years. I've recently had the flu which caused me to vomit up my methadone (I get 5 take home bottles per week). Tried taking another bottle and threw up again. I'm feeling sick from not taking it so I took a 60 mg morphine sulfate pill. Will this help at all? ## It may help stave off the worst of the withdrawals you could experience, since it is also a narcotic. However, before doing so in the future, you really should call the doctor or clinic you are working with and get their advice, first. Taking another narcotic may not be approved and might get you kicked out of the Methadone program. How are you feeling now? ## Because of a heart problem my wife was taken off 150 mg per day immediately and it was replaced by morphine. Dr. s...

Methadone adderall xanax

I took a 10 mg methadone 7 hrs ago. I have 20 mg Adderall, and 1 mg xanax. I have a lot to get done and I want to take a quarter of the adderall and half a xanax. I don't want to act weird or feel sick. Ive taken the adderall before but didn't have anything with it and took half and it had me stuck on the couch forever and I couldn't eat. One time I took half of the blue xanax and half the adderall and could function find. I need help. ## The FDA does warn that mixing them together could cause increased side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, accelerated heart rate, elevated blood pressure, and nervousness. Has your doctor prescribed this combination? It is best to be extremely cautious, due to the fact that you are mixing depressants, with a stimulant, which has been known...

My Methadone clinic banned pills - stuck on liquid

Hello everyone. I'm from San Diego, CA. I've been on Methadone for 3.5 years now. I'm on 80mg daily. I was on the pill form of Methadone for most of my stay at the clinic. They were METHADONE DISKETTES 40MG, they also had DOLOPHINE 5MG and 10MG. Those worked amazing for me, they actually weren't even generic, those are Brand name Methadone. So over 6 months ago, they banned the tablets and forced every patient who were on tablets to liquid Methadone. Ever since the switch, I've been depressed and most of the time I don't even want to leave the house. I was the complete opposite on tablets. Happy, wanting to do anything and everything, etc. So it's definitely impacting my life, negatively. I DON'T want to raise my dose, because I know 80mg is my stable dos...

Methadone and morphine for end of life care

My Mom was diagnosed with Stage 4 Cancer - spindle cell sarcoma. They have given her 6 months to live. Right now the cancer has spread to her upper rib, right hip, lungs and brain. She also has a clogged artery. She wanted to spend her last months at home so we set up hospice there to care for her during these next months. They started her on morphine to control the pain on .25ml and raised it to .5ml. She started forgetting things and becoming anxious. She forgot one day to tell the nurse she was in pain and waited too long. That night it took a while to get her pain under control. Hospice raised her dosage to .75ml and began administering at least every 4 hours or as needed. Sometimes every 3 hours. Mom became more confused, tired, weak and was losing her memory. She couldn't fini...

methadone 10mg tablets

Need a doctor to prescribe, not a methadone clinic. I currently exhausted all in the surrounding areas. Very important. Anywhere in central AR. ## Hello, Susan! How are you? I'm sorry, but if you've already gone to a Methadone clinic, at any point, then a regular doctor will not be able to prescribe it for you. It would be against the law for them to do so, so a clinic is your only option. 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. Can anyone suggest a good one in that area? ## U can still get a doc just dnt say u went to a clinic or say that was ur only option cause of the pain and when they found out u take them for pain they will get rid of u cause a c...
