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...

Liquid Methadone dose 70Mg once a day
13 Replies RSS Share
I currently take 70mgs of liquid Methadone once a day, but I used to take two 10mg tablets of Methadone twice a day. Since I have been taking the liquid I have went from 40mg a day to 100mg a day in just over three months, however I have decreased my dose to 70mg over the past few months because I was worried to be at such a high dose so fast. When I was taking the tablets I stayed at a total of 40mg in a day comfortably for six months, until I found a place in town that would keep me on methadone because I was traveling out of town just to pick up that prescription. The place I go to now prefers prescribing liquid and only one large dose every 24hrs, I don't think the liquid is as effective as the tablets and I also don't feel that one dose last 24hrs, that is the reason my dos...

methadone and surgery
81 Replies RSS Share
I'm having surgery for knee replacement and this is the first time I've had surgery and general anaesthetic while on methadone. Can anyone advise me about the safety of this and how they will treat post-operative pain? ## I have had two surgerys while on methadone, you will be fine they gave me percocet for pain and it took the edge off which is what it should do, alot of people think they should be pain free after a surgrey while taking pain pills but that is not the case hope all goes well ## Hello. If you are on methadone maintenance for opiate addiction, you will need to tell the surgon so he/she knows how to treat your pain and your general sedation. Methadone won't help your post op pain, so he/she will have to prescribe another type of painkiller. One of the reasons i...

Methadone for pain control
12 Replies RSS Share
How well does methadone work for chronic pain management? I went from 10 mg oxycodone then dropped down to 7.5 mg hydrocodone and my pain is totally out of control. I have no relief. I am out of options except methadone or Suboxone. Please help. ## I was taking 10 mg oxycodone 4 times a day. I was forced to go to PM for my pain and got prescribed 7.5 hydrocodone 3 times a day, had to agree to mbnb injections if I wanted my meds. All I need is my pain controlled to get some quality of life back so I'm thinking maybe I should try methadone if it would help me. I need an honest answer. ## I had back surgery (Removal of discs with fusions L4 thru S1), caught MRSA and had another 3 surgeries after that to clean my back out of infection, he nicked my spinal cord and I leaked out fluid, an...

found a small tan and beige capsule on the floor. What is it? ## Are there any letters or numbers on the capsules? That is the only way to have a definite ID, is by the drug's unique imprint code. With that said, below is an image of the well known various forms of Methadone: Does the one you have match any of the above? ## i did not know methadone come in a capsule ## Yes, that's news to me as well.

It's a red and white capsule with no numbers or imprints on them. ## Why does it come in a capsule now? Is it a compound? ## Does methadone come in a yellow & white capsules with no marks on them? ## There are ...

what cold medicine can i take with methadone
3 Replies RSS Share
I am taking 70 mg daily methadone, have been going to clinic for 2 mths now. I have a severe sinus cold/infection and was wondering what OTC medication I can take without the risk of an adverse reaction? Ugh, just want to be able to breathe again!!! ## Hello, Donna! How are you? I'm sorry, but there are far too many cold remedies on the market for me to be able to check them all for possible interactions. Which one do you usually take? If you can post back with your usual choices, I'll be happy to check them for you. The FDA classifies Methadone as 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. ## Nyquil is what I want to try,but worried about any reactions between N...

19 Replies RSS Share
If u are prescribed methadone pills in SOuth Carolina and then move to Grand Rapids, MN where there is no dosing methadone clinic anywhere/ can u still get the pill form at any Hospitol and pharmacy in the area? Or is it treated just like liquid dose? Can u get methadone pills at any Hospitol or pharmacy? ## Regular doctors cannot prescribe it for addiction treatment, they can only prescribe it for pain. If you were in severe withdrawal and went to an ER, they'd have to treat you to stabilize you, but they are only required to do so, until you are out of danger and they don't have to prescribe Methadone.

You take it 1 time a day. It's taken sublingually, (Under the Tongue). It is a VERY long lasting drug. It won't make you feel high, but it will get you "Well" it's much easier to g...

Anyone heard of methadone clinics watering down methadose?
76 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...
