To Get Off Of Meth

What do you need to take to get off meth. ## According to my research, because the damage done by meth addiction happens in many areas, treatment is broad and includes immediate detox and subsequent care. The emotion, physical, and social problems meth causes all have to be addressed before sobriety can be maintained. "Meth addiction can be treated. Although acute withdrawal can be completed in a week without the drug, long term withdrawal symptoms will persist. Medical treatment can help with depression and coping skills. The risk for addicts is that they will think one round of withdrawal and suffering has somehow made them less likely to slide back into full blown addiction. This is not the case. It has been shown that the changes meth makes in the brain can take up to a year to ... ...

I work as a paramedic and had a female patient that had what initially looked like Asthma. She had no responce to Ventolin or IV adrenaline. To the point of collapse and seizures on arrival at A/E. I was not able to see the toxicology report but was advised she had a beta blocker and amphetamine show up. My question is, would these two drugs have an adverse effect on our administration of the ventolin and adrenaline as a conflict between agonist and antagonist. Cheers Jimmy ...

Getting off methadone
2 Replies RSS
Hi I've been on methadone for about 7 months and completely over it. I have weaned down from 65mgs to 30mgs without too much hassle. I've now been told I can switch to suboxone but isn't it just changing from one to another, so what's the point? I'm so over taking this crap. I've gone from a size 6 to a size 12 during this time and hate it. I hate everything about it, it's just horrible. I started after a Dr had put me on Endone for headaches without telling me they were extremely addictive. I was happy to cold turkey off Endone but got convinced to go on methadone, which is obviously the worst option ever. Is suboxone easier to get off? What should I do? I need some advice as my Dr is s***.. Cheers guys and sorry for the bad mood. I'm just so over it all... ...

There are 2 of us males early 30s. One of us underwent major back surgery 3 years ago and a has been addicted to pain meds for a total of 5 years and myself about 3 just from simply being his main caretaker and dipping into the cookie jar a few to many times like an idiot. We went back to our general dr. (same guy) And explained that we are both full fledged addicts an have been obtaining methadone off the street as is seems to be the only thing that works. He asked us what we where getting off the street and we told him Methadone. His response was, well that's the smartest thing you have done so far!? because of its extremely long effect on the body. We told him we need his help that we just have no money left and our livers are just a mess... we cant move on with life. He decided ... ...

I ,due to a severe injury,was on methadone for 8 yrs and got off that crap and on suboxone at the advice of a friend. I now am at 2 mgs of suboxone daily. My pain issues are mild to none and I want off subs .I went to my doctor who claims he has Much experience with this and has proven that to me...but his method is scaring me and from what I read online I am very hesitant. He prescribed me 2mg dilaudid and valium which I hate and plans to wean me off the subs. Is this right??? I can handle a mild w/d but not a heavy one due to my work. I am not looking for people tellin me to suck it up or give advice other than if the detox method described is reasonable or crazy?? Everytime I try to go below 2mg of subs I feel like hell will a dilaudid taper make it easier or start a new addiction an... ...

Using Fentanyl to get off methadone
46 Replies RSS
I have been on Methadone for about 5 years. I had an addiction to oxycontin and the went on methadone to quit. My highest dose was 120mg and I have managed to wean myself down to 17mg. The problem is I am having a really hard time getting off of it. Doing some reading I have learned that methadone is one of the worst for trying to quit. I have a perscription for 12mcg/h fentanyl for back pain which I havent been using but was thinking about quiting the methadone and using the patch instead so when I eventually drop it the withdraws won't be as bad. Has anyone tried this? is 12mcg enough? Any other thoughts or advice? ## I'm sending only a suggestion for you and that is......

I am at a methadone clinic on 70mlg. but cannot afford the 410.00 a month I'm on Medicare and they won't take that insurance. I have tried cold turkey twice Mostly It's the pain I need it for back and nerve pain. ## I live in Spokane Wa. need to be free from this burden also need help with pain control. ## Hello, Steve! How are you? I'm sorry, but if you've been going to an addiction clinic, even if it was for pain, then a regular doctor will not be able to prescribe Methadone and help you. It is against the law for them to do so. You'd be better served to stay at the clinic and ask them to assist you with tapering off of it. The FDA classifies this medication as being a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, s... ...

can you stop takeing it with out side effects ## Hello, Angie! How are you? How long have you been taking it and what is the dosage? The FDA classifies Methocarbamol as a muscle relaxant, so in theory it isn't addictive, but your body can get used to anything you take for a long period of time and may experience some minor withdrawal effects, if you stop taking it abruptly. The FDA lists the possible withdrawal effects as including nausea, headache, fever/chills, rebound pain and diarrhea. ...

can i use methadone to get off of percocets?
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 ... ...

Is suboxone as hard to get off as methadone?

Hi everyone! I was wondering if suboxone is as hard 2 get off as methadone? I was on 110 of methadone 4 almost 5 years, after many years of Oxy abuse. Got down 2 (24) and the withdrawals were so bad, and, the cravings came back. Dr put me on suboxone, which works great. I've been on 3 (8 mg) a day 4 almost 8 years now. I'm scared 2 death 2 get off. I suffer with a lot of pain, too. The suboxone helps some. What with it. I'm also afraid of the bad withdrawals, and returning back 2 pain pills. Any advise will b helpful. ## Hi Cats, You definately can get off subs it just takes time. Why not cut down just a couple of mgs and see how it goes. Instead of 8 three times a day you could try 8 than 6 than 8. If you feel allright after a week or so try dropping another 2. Theres no se... ...

Usually for drugs like this the safest way to stop taking them is to tapper off them, under a doctor's supervision if possible.

This is probably one of the most common ways in which people actively try to avoid severe withdrawal ... ...

I ended up going on Suboxone. ## You should definitely NOT QUIT COLD TURKEY, especially since you've been on Methadone for over one year!

I'm in agony! I can't keep taking adderall and methadone, it's starting to make me feel irritated. I hate having to be on something. I just want to feel normal again without relying on pills. I'm terrified of coming off of these pills. Please if you or anyone has any advice or help for making it easier, anything I'd be very grateful. ## Hello, Nicole! How are you? What doses are you taking and how often? Both of these medications are listed by the FDA as having the possibility of being habit forming, which means that too rapid of a withdrawal could cause some miserable withdrawal effects, such as nausea, fever/chills, diarrhea, rebound pain, insomnia and irritability. Thus, a slow taper would be best. Have you spoken to your doctor about getting off of them? Having m... ...
