Is it normal for a doctor to switch me from oxy 10/325 to Methadone 20 GM's a day? I have severe back pain and the oxy wasn't working anymore after being in it for 6 years! ## Hello, Chrissy! How are you? Did you mean 20mgs of Methadone? It does not come in grams. There is no hard and fast rule for pain management, it is up to your doctor and what they think would work best 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. If you're not happy about taking Methadone, then you are free to inform your doctor that you'd like to try something else. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I was strolling through and found this question.. sometimes ... ...

I was on methadone and haven't had any since monday. I've been taking percocet to help with withdrawal. I took 10 mg of percocet at about 4:00 this morning. How long till i can take a suboxone? ## how long after taking percocet can i take suboxone ## 4 days ## You should follow your doctor's prescribing instructions. In order to take Suboxone, you have to be in full withdrawals from other opiates, because otherwise the Naloxone in it could throw you into very dangerous withdrawals. Learn more Suboxone details here.* Thus, there is no set time frame for when to start treatment, because the onset of full withdrawals can vary from person to person, depending on how their body handles it. Some people may end up in full withdrawals within 12 hours, or it could be 4 days for other... ...

How Long Should I Wait After Taking Methadone To Take Percocet Or Klonopin?
16 Replies RSS
I am addicted to opiates. Mostly Oxycodone, and Vicodin if I can't find my drug of choice. I am also prescribed Klonopin, 1mg 2X a day. A couple days ago, someone gave me 1 10mg Methadone because I was sick from not having my D.O.C. I was told not to take my Klonopin though because the mixture could be deadly. However I've just learned that mixing other opiates with Methadone can hurt you as well. So I took the methadone Saturday evening. Sunday I took Vicodin throughout the day, but did not take my Kpin. All day today I have been doing Percocet. I have done about 80mgs over the period of 5 hours. I also took my Klonopin today. I just learned today that methadone has a long half life, and that it probably is still in my body because it is only 3 days since I took it. My question... ...

Last week I took 3 doses of methadone, the last being monday morning. I have been on subs for 5 weeks. I know this was a huge mistake then I am starting to get the sweats, chills and I cant sit still. I have suboxone but I am afraid to take it. IDK what to do? ## Hello, John! How are you? You have to be in full withdrawal, before you can take Suboxone, again. Otherwise, it may throw you into dangerous precipitated withdrawals. The FDA classifies this medication as an opiate that is most commonly used to treat drug addiction, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

Those aren't terribly high doses, but could be dangerous for someone that isn't opiate tolerant, due to the sedation and depression of the central nervous system that they may cause.

Is it safe to take 10mg perocet after taking methadone

I took 30mg on Tuesday and 30mg yesterday (Wednesday) Today I missed my 30mg dose and I was wondering is it safe if I take a 10mg Perocet today and will I feel anything? Let me know asap! ## Chances are you'll have no effect due to the methadone blocking the receptors in which those meds set off that euphoric feeling..(you may have a slight euphoric feeling due to a low dosage, but I wouldn't count on it if that's what your going for ) you'd basically be wasting your money and time and medication.. it will tho possibly help for pain.. ## Is it safe to take percocet 10 3 times a day on top 15 mg morphine sulfate pills 4 times a day? ...

31 Replies RSS
I take about 150mgs of percocet 30mgs a day and I want to know if I take methadone will it help with the withdrawal & shakes of the stopping the percocet dose every day? I have used methadone to come off of percocets before, but it was at a way lower dose.. I know suboxone's what is recommended but from what I'm told at my dose methadone is stronger if I use it right. ## In my honest opinion I don't think that Methadone will be of the best help, seeing as there is a possibly unsafe interaction between Methadone and the Oxycodone found in Percocet. The interaction between these two drugs states the following: "Central nervous system- and/or respiratory-depressant effects may be additively or synergistically increased in patients taking multiple drugs that cause these ... ...

How long will it take for me to stop having withdrawls symptoms from methadone? I am feeling sick even while I am taking the percocet. Is it possible to still go through methadone withdrawls even while you are taking the percocet? ## You should not be switching from methadone to percocet which is very addictive also. If your Dr. can perscribe suboxen try that. It helps to take away the pain of opiate withdrawl. ## I forgot to mention Suboxen can also be addictive.. ## Methadone is well known to cause withdrawals, regardless of what it is replaced with. That is why many people end up on a lifetime maintenance dose of it, rather than ever being able t... ...

I know suboxtons are what is recomended but from what I'm told @ my dose methadone is stronger if I use it right ## Well the main issue is that the Methadone itself is very addictive and you could end up trading one problem for another.

where can I find methadone in columbus OH
8 Replies RSS
Where can I find a doctor in Columbus Oh that will prescribe methadone for chronic back pain? My doctor gives me percocet but it just doesn't help. ## What other medications have you tried? And what is the dosage of the Percocet? The reason I'm asking it because Methadone should really be the last resort medication, for several reasons. The first is because there are other stronger and safer options available, such as Morphine or higher doses of Oxycodone. Learn more Morphine details here. Learn more Oxycodone details here. Another is due to the fact that Methadone is so very highly habit forming, so most people never get off of it, even if they're just using it for pain.

How can I get off methadone? ## I am on both Methadone and oxycodone for pain. As long as you take your oxycodone about 45 minutes before your dose of Methadone and eat about a half an hour after after you take your Methadone, your medication will work as it is supposed to. Follow the same pattern if you take several doses of both medications a day, like I do. Just always make sure you take the oxycodone first, because it sets the tone for the day. I alternate between both and it works amazing. Good luck. ...
