Common Questions and Answers about Methadone overdose mg

methadose

You take 64 mg at ONE time?? In one dose???
Has anyone ever been through an accidental overdose on pain pills who is willing to discuss it. I am just hoping to know what the symptoms are.
From what I have read of other people's experience, these are both serious dangers in methadone recovery, and should be kept in mind. In the overdose, loss of consciousness happens VERY quickly, and can result in death from respiration failure in only a few minutes.
I am on methadone maintenance but how will I one day get off the methadone? I really worry about the withdrawal part of being on methadone goin to the clinic every single day, and getting my dose of 60 mg right now I have been on about one month for heroin addiction I used to be on this program 10 yrs ago but moved out of state and stayed clean for 10 yrs off heroin, but pain pills i still did like crazzy...
I need some honest opinions please............ I recently started a methadone treatment program. I am doing the 6 month program. 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??? I have hears many horror storeis of people and methadone, about trading one drug for another and all that.
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 mg in a single dose. On top of the Methadone, I also ingested 14 mg 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 methadone for up to 18 years. Overdose Can die from overdose of narcotics; potentially lethal, even for tolerant individuals death can occur quite fast without proper medical treatment with narcan.
THey may not show it but kids do that. I have been on a methadone program for 10 years, 58 mg 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.
The equivalent of higher doses of methadone to suboxone then would cause a suboxone overdose using your calculations.If someone were on 150 mg of methadone, 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.
Or since i have a lot of pain would methadone 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.
But I also run every day but I always have even when taking 80 mg. I think tapering methadone 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!
im booked to get on methadone 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?
i just want to reply to methadone yes people die overdose but people also overdose on methadone, some people cant handle methadone 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 was noticing signs now looking back of those of an overdose of methadone. I strongly feel I have been over dosed with the methadone 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?
Please help. My 21 yr old son is taking MEthadone. The Dr put him on 4 mg 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 overdose, they could not handle it, 40 mg 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!
p.s You can overdose on methadone it happens all the time.
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 Mg of Methadone 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 mg drop every month, until i got to 10 mg. than I went down 2 1/2 mg 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 mg. of methadone 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 mg of methadone is = to 3 mg of morphine so 20 mgs of methadone is = to 60 mgs of morphine.20 mgs of methadone can kill someone.

He was then presccribed methadone for pain. After he adjusted to the methadone 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 methadone ...i have seen some 60 mg 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...
And I've heard a lot of mad things about methadone, and good things about suboxone. I have goverment insurance and I'm really having a hard time tryin to find a doctor that will take my insurance it's really expensive.
There is some legislation, which I've read and have asked Doc Dan to interpret for us, which suggests that in March of this year a wide range of doctors will be able to become certified to treat opiate addiction with methadone. Currently, Methadone clinics are under the lead fist of the fascist, citizen-hating DEA (the DEA's unwritten charter considers all addicts to be criminals and sub-human filth not worth rehabilitating -- nice bunch of guys).
