Methadone Overview

Methadone, sold under the brand names Dolophine and Methadose among others, is an opioid used for opioid maintenance therapy in opioid dependence and for chronic pain management.[3] Detoxification using methadone can be accomplished in less than a month, or it may be done gradually over as long as six months.[3] While a single dose has a rapid effect, maximum effect can take up to five days of use.[3] The pain-relieving effects last about six ho...

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 is not working the way I thought it would

I've been going to the clinic now for a little over a month and my current dose is 100mg a day. I'm going up another ten tomorrow. I have had no luck with getting to a dose that works all day. I hear people always saying how great it works and how it fixes everything but thats not the story for me. I go in around 8am and from 9-4 I do ok I guess I'm somewhat happy and upbeat able to deal with life and want to be a productive member of society but mid afternoon comes around and everything seems to turn to s*** I start becoming kept to myself and just depressed. By 8 pm I just want to go lock myself in my room and knock myself out with tylenol pm. It doesn't seem to matter what my dose level is everything I just said has been exactly the same since my 1st day. And I've...

30 mg methadone vs oxycodone (equivalency)

I'd like to know how much stronger in milligrams the difference is between 30 mg of Methadone and 30 mg of Oxycodone? Of course, the Methadone always worked better and the Oxycodone, same dosage, is not nearly as strong. How does one figure that out? ## Each 30mgs of Oxycodone is equivalent to approximately 6mgs of Methadone, so yes, the Methadone is much stronger. The FDA warns that these medications carry the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with?

Tapering down from liquid Methadone 50ml

Hi I'm Jason. I'm currently on 50ml of liquid methadone for opiate addiction. I really want to detox off this poison. I've just moved 14 miles to West London in England UK, it's a great move as I was living in a room in Tottenham North London, which was a complete and utter s***hole, excuse my French. My mental health really went out the window and I abused drugs most days and nights, as I was surrounded by it in my flat. There was even a drug dealer and everyone I knew took these drugs, it was hell. Anyway I'm now after 4 years alone again in a beautiful 1 bedroom flat that's all mine. No one knows me. I don't touch drugs but I'm still on 50 ml of methadone. So I'm asking you guys what's the least dangerous way to cut down and get off this stuff,...

I need to know the herb I read about in this forum to help with craving sweets and other side effects on Methadone!! PLEASE HELP!!

I was reading in this forum a week or so ago and come upon someone talking about an herb capsule that helps with methadone side effects, craving sweets, sweating and a couple of other side effects. Is there anyone that could please help me with this?? PLEASE PLEASE!! I thought I found the answers to all my prayers. Except now, I can not find the name of this herb for the life of me! I truly appreciate all your help! Thank you and have a wonderful day!! ## Are you sure it was this forum? I have done some searching through our various Methadone posts from users and I can't find anything. I also did some general online searching and I am only finding details to help with withdrawals, when you stop taking it, I am not finding anything that helps while you are still on it. ## I am not co...

I'm on 120mg of methadone can I take subutex

Hi, I'm currently taking 120mg of methadone which i take 40mg every 8 hours and I've been in the hospital for over 3 months due to a blood infection that has left me almost unable to walk. Now I would have to go to a methadone clinic everyday in order to dose which is impossible with me being in a wheel chair right now. I'm wanting to go back on subutex as I was on this medication before until I needed something stronger for pain. Can I take a low dose of subutex tonight like 12 hours after I last dosed on methadone at 40mg. ## Hell, Jaymee! How are you? I'm very sorry that you're so ill. If you're in the hospital, you shouldn't take anything without doctor's approval, because there may be interactions or problems with something else they have you taking,...

Methadone and Thrive supplement

I'm wondering if I could take "Thrive" - the supplement that everyone is taking, because it looks like it's only vitamins? ## I was wondering if I could take thrive with methadone ## Did you ever find out if you could take thrive with methadone.? Bc I would love to know. ## Are you referring to 'Thrive' made by a company called "Le-Vel"? If so, I've looked at the nutrition facts listed on their product page for the men's multivitamin supplement and compiled what it contains below: Vitamin B1 (Thiamine) 1.4 mg 100% Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) 1.7 mg 100% Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide) 12 mg 60% Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic acid) 10 mg 100% Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine) 2 mg 100% Folic acid 800 mcg 200% Vitamin B12 100 mcg 1667% Vitamin D3 200 IU 50% Chromium (as chromi...

Doctors Who Prescribe Methadone

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 ...

Methadone Methadose

Are methadone and methadose the same thing. I am on methadone right now and i am tired of going to a clinic everyday. So is methadose per-scribleable by a doctor once a month or something. thanks ## Stay clean and in 1 year you'll be going 1 or 2 x week ## Methadose is the liquid form of methadone and in my state (OH) it's what is given at the clinics. You would have to check your local laws but generaly speaking methadone maintenance is only done at a federaly regulated clinic and not in a Dr office. Have you considered Suboxone? The laws governing that are not as strict and alot of Dr's can prescribe it although they do have to apply for the rights to prescribe it. ## Carrie is correct. Methadose does contain Methadone, so it is the same thing, but when given for addiction...

Death by methadone injection

My son was on oral methadone for 3 years. He got arrested and was in rehab for 5 weeks. During that time he detoxed from the methadone. When he got out he was clean for a year then one morning his son found him dead. Wife said it was a methadone overdose and they wrote it off as suicide. There was no drug paraphernalia at the scene and none in his stomach. Just what he had for supper. No stomach flush was done on him. I have researched this for four years and am currently trying to get murder charges pressed against two people that have admitted to others they did it. There were no other drugs in his body and from what I have read and researched being injected with the amount he was on and detoxed from would have killed him. The Pathologist said he wouldn't have time to even remove ...
