This is my 3rd day of treatment. I am starting at one dose of 30mg of methadone. Is this a good number to start with??? TOO HIGH of a number?? PRETTY LOW of a number???

Many of you who read this sentence may find it hard to believe, but the last time I used an illicit dose of methadone was on May 18 and I ingested 600 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mg</span> in a single dose. On top of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>methadone</span>, I also ingested 14 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mg</span> of Alprazolam. The cost of the methadone & Alprazolam was $778.00. Except for a slight swelling and redness of the eyes, it would not have been apparent that I had taken anything.
Overall safety potentially lethal Medically safe, no toxic effects found in patients maintained on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>methadone</span> for up to 18 years. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>overdose</span> Can die from <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>overdose</span> of narcotics; potentially lethal, even for tolerant individuals death can occur quite fast without proper medical treatment with narcan.
Am I hurting any of my vital organs using oxycodone 30 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mg</span> @ 10 per day? I have chronic pain .i could prob manage the pain in another way but am unable to manage the w/ drawl symptoms for very long. I have been on opiates for 40 years. Oxy for 6 years.
THey may not show it but kids do that. I have been on a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>methadone</span> program for 10 years, 58 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mg</span> now and getting ready to try and taper off finally. I have 2 kids, 22 and 19 yrs. old. I do not know you but I have an idea of the desperation that you feel. I am 41 yrs old, and live under my inlaws roof right now. My husband and I have been married for 23 yrs and things have been better but they are **** right now. We have nothing. But you have to believe that there is a reason to live.
Or since i have a lot of pain would <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>methadone</span> be a better choice? Its been so long since i was able to be happy sober-how long untill i will be able to enjoy life again? Ever?
I used methadone to get off norco Im so surprised anyone takes that to get high BUT for what i used it for it worked great for me, I think ur starting out on way too high of a dose and risking addiction at those levels. My highest methadone dose was 15 mg a day and went down .5 a week.
im booked to get on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>methadone</span> on wedsday or take my **** test. yes i have heard all the up and downs of methadoen. but i think i will just keep geting and have no faith in quiting oxy any more and am stuck in such a bad rut. spending about 200a day on my addiction. whats everyone opion on my decsion what do you think will be a good dose of methadone for me? will i feel sick or withdraw?
The equivalent of higher doses of methadone to suboxone then would cause a suboxone <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>overdose</span> using your calculations.If someone were on 150 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mg</span> of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>methadone</span>, you are saying they would need to take almost 19 x 8 mg suboxone! That would be deadly!!!! Suboxone and methadone are just different. I think the 8mg to 30-40 mg is a very close comparison.If a doctor told you that they should lose their license.
But, I was noticing signs now looking back of those of an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>overdose</span> of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>methadone</span>. I strongly feel I have been over dosed with the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>methadone</span> now all along. Some days I would sleep till 3 or 4pm w/ no job rent dvds and smoke 2 packs a day. I wouldnt have noticed the nightmares then due to being over dosed. NOW.....Loss of appietite, loss of sexual interest. like I said the list goes on. The question is, why is it impotant to get to that level of 30-40 mgs before starting sub? What is Suboxone?
i just want to reply to methadone yes people die overdose but people also <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>overdose</span> on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>methadone</span>, some people cant handle <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>methadone</span> because its to dam strong i think anyone on pain meds is better off weening off then go threw hell getting off methadone, and risk the chance of useing on methadone then the chances of death is greater as my friend gnarly told me methadone is nothing to F..
But I also run every day but I always have even when taking 80 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mg</span>. I think tapering <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>methadone</span> helps with weight loss, but you also need to exercise and really watch what you eat, cut out sweets as much as possible it makes you crave them. I used to eat icecream every night and never did before taking methadone. I cant wait until Im completely off this EVIL drug!!!! Good luck to all of you!
Please help. My 21 yr old son is taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>methadone</span>. The Dr put him on 4 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mg</span> of klonapin daily with the Meth. His pupils are like pinpricks, he is edgy, falls asleep, eyes sometimes roll up, is clumsy, argumentative - his persopnality completely different. I can't take him out in publlic. I am scared to death. He does not even notice that he is not himself. I monitor his Klon intake but don't if he is taking somesothing else -- pot? I want to cut him back on the Klon.
RIP DJ AM I didnt listen to his scratches/music but he tryd to make a defference in his community with intervertions RiP i know this perticular forum is for the info of methdones and oxy, and as described by another member it was a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>overdose</span>, they could not handle it, 40 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mg</span> dones were ttaken off the market also taken with xanax is deadly no matter your tolerence.
That's me.Got to have the benzos and its got nothing to do with mixing the two methadone and klonopin.Question my doctor is being investigated by the DEA and is taking people off methadone and putting them on subutex-will that help like methadone?I know it cost more,but I'm telling myself it will be better and I will have more energy-methadone has made the last 16 or so years of my life terrible!
I have to agree with Lisa. methadone is the wrong way to go. My sister had a fifteen year Heroin addiction. She enrolled in a methadone clinic for "treatment", and has now been on methadone longer than she was on Heroin. And there is no sign that she'll be stopping anytime soon. BTW - Her life and health issues are just as messed up as when she was on heroin.
Hey Colleen, I'm so proud of you for all the reading and getting ready to do it you have done. I myself come off of 10 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mg</span> of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>methadone</span> and What I did for the Restless legs is go to the health food store and by some Restless leg Homeopathic stuff and it will help , Someone around here told me that and I had some already and got that and take baths..Lots of baths... I will tell you the DT is hard but you can do it.
I went very slow with 5 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mg</span> drop every month, until i got to 10 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mg</span>. than I went down 2 1/2 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mg</span> at a time until I got to 2 1/2 mg. When I felt I was ready. I left 6 doses (licquid) in frig, knowing there was releif if I really wanted it. I also had trouble sleeping, you may want to try a sleeping aid, over the counter. As I remembered it did not last very long. I also used for a period of 5 yrs. The hard part is over and just hang in there a little longer and you should be proud of yourself.
), I no longer have the need to be on all this medication. I was on 80 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mg</span>. of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>methadone</span> a day which I cut in half about 6 weeks ago. No withdrawals. About 4 weeks ago, I cut that dosage in half again. I am now at 20 mg. a day. I can't seem to go below that point without triggering a whole bunch of weird symptoms. I have anxiety attacks, profuse sweating, chills, lack of concentration, "itchiness", random deep body aches, deep, black depression and shortness of breath.
Hon I was an EMT for 7 years,seek medical attention and DO NOT take any other meds.One <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mg</span> of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>methadone</span> is = to 3 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mg</span> of morphine so 20 mgs of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>methadone</span> is = to 60 mgs of morphine.20 mgs of methadone can kill someone.

He was then presccribed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>methadone</span> for pain. After he adjusted to the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>methadone</span> at about 40mg, he started abusing them. He grAdually went up and up and up to sometime over a whopping 300mg methdone daily. Hes been on the 'done for 3-4 years now. He'll take as much as he can, throughout 3-4 times a day, to 300+mg (day). Not only that. He resumed his vike es haBit also, to about 10 pills day.
on this forum suboxone is much preferred over <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>methadone</span> ...i have seen some 60 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mg</span> a day hydro users go on sub and are still on sub...i have seen it abused, seen it snorted, seen it stopped for a day or so, so the person can use...i have also read some horrid posts on methadone wids that would make ur skin crawl...slow taper recommended from each...i have seen a few success stories with each...most of our subbers are still subbing so we cant really tell yet what the outcome will be...
