Methadone and hallucinations

Common Questions and Answers about Methadone and hallucinations

methadose

Dilaudid for me produces hives but no hallucinati<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>s and I have had large doses of demerol without good pain control and no side effects. Methad<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e does nothing for my pain but did produce vivid dreams but no nightmares or hallucinations. So everyone responds differently. I hope your husband will find something that is effective for his pain without any of the side effects that methadone caused for him. I wish you both the best.
She had hallucinati<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>s and thought I had killed both my brothers and my husband and I was after her. It was prescribed after surgery and once they realized what was going on, they took her right off. Within 4 days or so she was okay and did not remember anything. That being said, I don't think it is anything to fool with. I would call the doctor immediately. Everyone is different and although I can share my mom's experience, I cannot tell you how your hubby will react.
And eventually turning myself into a cuckoo's nest where i was chemically restrained against my will, shot with haldol only to get released with the possible diagnosis hallucinati<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>s by possible methad<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e withdrawl. im in pain today but ill never go back on that stuff again.my question is how many people have had hallucinations while detoxing from methadone?
what are the symptoms of methad<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e withdrawals? Do they include hallucinati<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>s? Hearing voices? Restless legs and arms I get, but what about the other? Help my son is really suffering!
He only gets tylenol when he complains or told to go on med watch, which is naked in a cell while being monitored. I plan on calling the methad<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e clinic and ask but any info here would be appreciated.
Methadone is the hardest drug to quit Ive ever come across, and with her high dosage and depending on how long shes been on methad<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e the withdrawls are very hard to cope with. Its very likely you could hear voices and hallucinations when abruptly stopped at her levels, I hope she is getting some good care at the health facility. Ive never been through that process, and I know alot of states, counties are different in how they deal with methadone(opiod)dependence when they are arrested.
im like 51 hours in with no methad<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e ( dropped called from 40mg) and i have had a couple of cerapax and some phenergan and although i feel like im carrying lead weight, i feel pretty damn good.
I hate hospitals-but I knew I either go or the dehydration from vomiting,the horrible pain, the hallucinati<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>s, the hot and cold sweats, the rapid and high blood pressure, the shallow breathing, and no sleep for 72 hrs, were going to kill me!!!(THEY GAVE ME A STRonG SHOT OF VALIUM AT THE HOSPITAL, AND THAT didn't phase me )It took four shots of valium,five shots of vomiting medicine(within 6 hrs) to just ease the symptoms. I lost ten lbs. in 48 hrs.
Hi, my wife has been on methad<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e for about a year now for her codine addiction and has decided to go cold turkey. Her dose has always been 27mg but she has just stopped rather than come down in dose first. Things have been fine until now, day 5. I really wish she would go back on it but she refuses too. She is suffering all the usual withdrawl symptoms but she is also hallucinating which is quite frightening along with threatening to take her life (which she has tried about 10 years ago).
After 7 days in pure Hell, involving exquisite pain, severe drug withdrawals, auditory, waking dream hallucinati<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>s, nasty smell and taste hallucinati<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>s causing nausea, no sleep, couldn't eat, guilt over my daughter’s situation, and not being able to help my wife from jail, you know the drill (what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, and what God leads you to, He brings you through). Luckily my only two-bed cellmate was a born-again Christian.
Will this pass faster since I was only on Methad<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e for 6mnths? I topped at 65mg and tapered by 5mg every 3 days....and i asked if theu could maybe split up my five....maybe after a few days of mg5 (was on 5mg for 6 days at the end) and they said no...which I was told I COULD DO...but thats besides the point. I am here now and mentally I still am just getting very tired. Anyone in similar situation or a past situation that relates?
my opinion (for whatever it's worth), is i would save the methad<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e option until later in your life if you can control and limit your oxy intake to as perscribed, and it works, why would you want to change? at any rate i think a little bit longer than 24 days on this one.
Here is a link that should give you the answers you are looking for considering methad<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e. www.methadone.org. I am on methad<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e,and it has helped me in more ways than I can say. I have been a heroin addict most of my life. I got clean then after many years of recovery, started taking vicodin for chronic pain. I dont know about any other addicts, but taking pain pills is my trigger.. The methadone I am on, helps with the chronic pain and also keeps me clean and far away from heroin.
I spent 7 days in the icu mixing methad<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e and xanax. DonT DO IT! Please....
how many had success with CT? tapering down and then quitting their DOC? SUB and now off of sub? methad<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e and now off of methad<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e? real stories from those who have made the 30 day clean mark from all narcotics and how u got clean...how u felt and advice u would pass on? the toughest time/like the first week/first day etc? what u would do different if u had to do it all over again...?
5 years ago and is definitely entrenched in the pain managagement circus. They prescribed her methad<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e last week, unbeknownest to me. 1 10mg per day. She took 4 doses over 4 days and was as nauseous as she can ever recall. She was still taking her 10/650 percocet 4x per day, the doc supplemented those with the methadone. After speaking to the doc, he advised she quit taking the methadone 3 days ago. She has been having incredible WDs.
the many days and nights with no sleep, hallucinati<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>s, having to wear diapers because i lost all bowel and bladder function, not being able to feed or bathe myself but worst of all is the leg pain. Two years later I have lost 50 pounds and I am not a slave to the methadone clinic,but sleep still evades me and the pain is relavent.
Needless to say, I had seizures, vomited for 7 days, didn't eat for 14 days, had hallucinati<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>s, and thought my bones were going to rip out of my skin. I also didn't sleep for a very long time. Anyway, after leaving the hospital, it had been maybe two months and I guess it was just the mental thing and having no energy (I know it's gross but there times I would go days without taking a bath or leaving the house), and I ended up right back at the clinic.
Ive been on methad<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e for just 2 months - currently at 50 mg. After the first six weeks I decided it wasn't for me and asked clinic doc to taper, which he refused to do. So, only having takehomes for Sundays, last Sunday I skipped my dose. When I went to dose Monday morning I mixed my liquid with that tang they provide and only drank half (tossed the rest). I figured if they won't do it then I will take matters into my own hands and do it myself.
I have heard that is the best way to get off of methad<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e. I have watched my mom go in and out of methad<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e withdrawals every month for about 10 years now. I wish she had the desire to quit. She is so beautiful but I feel like the methadone makes her look pale and her teeth look yellow. She chooses to hoard the pills and then go for about a week without, and she can't do anything, can't go to work. I can't believe she hasn't been fired.
Go to Google and type in The Thomas Recipe for Opiate Withdrawal and read it then start it asap, this is the safest and healthiest way that I have found and followed myself. I am 39 yrs. old and have been on Methad<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e since 1999 and it was a nightmare! The worst part for me when I tried "cold turkey" was the sleeplessness and my mental state because everything (reality) seemed so surreal and frightening. Then I found the "T" recipe and it made all the difference!
Any addictive medication is going to stick around somewhere but for some reason methad<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e binds to anything and builds up and builds up. That's the best way I could interpret what my psychiatrist told me. I'm not a doctor though...
DO NOT MAKE THIS MISTAKE I used to know so little about Methad<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e. I had read some of the major websites on the internet, which try to portray Methad<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e as safe and effective. What I didn't know was the extreme danger and lethal side effect of this dangerous medication. With so little knowledge, my son and I decided for Matthew to enter a Methadone Maintenance Treatment program after relapsing on pain-killers for about a week; he had been drug-free for over six months.
My point here is that everyone has something to offer, including some excellent chemical analysis and research skills and we welcome whatever skills you can offer, including moral support. My personal goal is consumer advocacy. I want to publish as much information and analysis about Tramadol as I can find. If you have something to share, welcome. My personal agenda: I am for personal empowerment through information. I am a lawyer who has done consumer protection class action work.
This class of drugs includes heroin, morphine, codeine, methadone and oxycodone (Oxycontin).
I guess I just have problems with methad<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e. Methad<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e pretty much (in my opinion) just babies someone and is an addiction in and of itself. Being forced to go cold turkey while in jail may be the best thing that ever happened to your person.
Read some of the other posts on the addictions forum to see how it's affected so many others. It's addictive, it lowers the seizure threshold and can cause hallucinati<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>s and depersonalisation. The withdrawal syndrome is often worse than that for standard opiates. It's certainly not a drug of choice for depression, and if it was prescribed for pain, ther's many better options available.
See, I took methad<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e to come clean and it worked great, but I don't think methad<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e (wafer not liquid) with xanax would be a great combination, or maybe it would be ok, I don't know, thats a question for kip. In any case, Its a tough situation because I"m not the most knowledgeable person, I only speak from experience.
Have you ever truly tried to detox off the hydro with something like suboxone, I understand you have tried Evey med on the market for the RLS, but I am sure you know that when someone does detox from opiates the leg cramps and feelings much like you described in your post is quite common. And methad<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e detox these feelings are also unbearable and may go on for 6 months along sleep deprivation for just as long. Now your pain management DR.
