Avatar m tn I will appreciate very much - if possible - to have more information about 3 main questions posted. MSK and Methadone. Some patients have reported being on Methadone. a) Do you went on Methadone because you previous was on Morphine (as a painkiller) and it is easier to quit Morphine by taking Methadone? b) Has Methadone been chosen because of being a painkiller too, if so what is the result? Thank you.
Avatar m tn checked in to a methadone clinic about 4 months ago, and don't like needing methadone. But after stating methadone(90mg a day), I must say, I had huge benefit on my quality of life and only cost $25 per/week so it wasn't costing near as much. so wanting to be completely opiate free i started tapering off my dose of done by 5 to 10mg a day for the last month at my clinic, (which my Counselor told me NOT to do), but I did anyway. I felt like they were going to keep me on methadone for years!
604815 tn?1220105763 i am sick of the **** running my life and want off! I am not a fool and cant and wont do it cold turkey, been there done that, I have taken 40 mg of meth 2 days ago and have done roxis and had a fetynal patch on for 2 days, I have a presription for opana er and as I was reading it I noticed the scary for me word antoginist (sp?) I was looking forward to trying to get totally off the meth with the help of the opana and now that I read that I am wondering if it is like suboxome or subutex??
Avatar m tn I'm on day 9 off 1ml of methadone and I'm just starting to feel a little better. It's a bumpy road, full of tears, sweat and no sleep but you can do it! I'm here if you need anything!
Avatar n tn I have been completely off Methadone for 2 years and 8 months (after 7 years if continual use for pain). I don't know how I lived through it but I do it one day at a time. I still have days where the detox comes back like it was in the first week. I will have 5 days or so where I sleep real good and then, wham, it all comes back. I have found so many things to be helpful over the years. One, is an ionic foot bath. I found mine on line for $280.00.
Avatar n tn If you don't fall in the above categories and they are using the most accurate test - and your physician/lab knows how to read the results correctly - than sorry but your guesses are as good as mine. Immunoassays, the most common type of urine drug screening (quick and in your physician's clinic), doesn't measure drugs themselves. Rather, they measure how drug use interferes with the body’s ability to form antigen-antibody complexes. This are not deemed very accurate.
Avatar f tn i was on a pain med to long and had to work so stops and got sick .I was suggested methadone I thought i would be done. My husband in our state can not write for a family member. I am going down so fast I have a fever and have fell so many time .Stress is the worst thing for autoimmune diseases, They are watching me slip away I have legal papers now from a attorney showing no calls and they are keeping me from everyone I cant even see my counselor .
Avatar f tn It's so nice to be able to say I actually stopped using methadone and am happier with myself than I have been in a long time. Knowing I was able to get through the hardest part of withdrawal is very liberating and empowering! I can tell that I'm slowly starting to get the "old me" energy is returning, I don't have the RLS but maybe once or twice a week (knock on wood!
Avatar m tn So tomorrow morning is my 90days clean from methadone and benzos. I am really excited but what really bothers me is that I find myself still struggling. I am worried that i might give up on my sobriety is it normal to be struggling this far out? I jumped from 47mgs of methadone and was taking 2mgs of klonopin daily. I have no motivation to do anything and my hands and feet sweat like crazy! Urgh.. What a nightmare. Anyways hope there is light at the end of all this.
Avatar f tn He does have a PICC line and they are giving him very strong antibiotics. He is a typical guy and his back and stomach have been hurting him for months. I also think the diabetis is a factor too. The ultra sound showed that his gall bladder looked like mush....ewwwwww. I am very stressed out and have been in a lot of pain too. I am not doing great on c/t because of the pain, I am not abusing them....that is the good part. I am so happy you are doing well and have missed you.
Avatar f tn If you take them too soon, you'll wind up in precipatated withdrawals, which sound horrific, and you just have to wait them out. And because methadone has such a long half-life, you'd have to be off them for several days before starting the subs and you'd be feeling pretty miserable I would think. Good luck with whatever route you choose. You've done great so far and you're almost at ths finish linee!
Avatar f tn Hi well I kicked methadone and also had a ruff recovery methadone gets in your bones and slowly weeps out for me I remember telling my substane abuse conslor at 60 days out I should be over this by now but it is a slow process it was around 90 days till I got my energy back please keep posting for support ,,,,,,,,,,Gnarly............................
Avatar n tn Does anyone know anything about the following drugs for treatment of opiate addiction? "Naltrexone is not as well known as methadone, but it is highly effective in persons truly motivated to overcome their addiction. Naltrexone, when used in conjunction with clonidine, can shorten the detoxification time to one day as opposed to the two weeks necessary for the same results from methadone. This results in considerable cost savings.
Avatar dr m tn Everything is fine until they go into deep sleep, when all the muscles (including the throat and tongue muscles) relax, and the tongue falls back and obstructs breathing. At this point, one of three things can happen: 1. You can wake up immediately to light sleep or completely awake, wondering why they are suddenly awake, 2. You can stop breathing for 1-9 seconds and then wake up to light sleep or completely awake, choking, coughing or gasping for air, with your heart pounding, or 3.
1075541 tn?1255801028 People who are immunocompromised are definitely more prone (as you’re suffering from hepatitis C). A clinical examination is sufficient to diagnose the same and you might need a course of antibiotics to treat the same. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
Avatar m tn Right now I'm on 8 days free from methadone , my uppermost is on fire and my legs don't stay still! I know exactly what your going through but seems your abuse was short lived and this is the perfect time to put an end to it! For me it took getting arrested for selling drugs to pay for my habits, I losed both my 2 young boys and am getting devorced now as we'll currently on house arrest , don't let this habit ruin your life like it did mine!
Avatar n tn My original addiction was to Morphene and Speed and I ended up in a straightjacket in a detox center. I have a job, mother of 2 girls and my husband runs a business. I guess right now I feel like a phony, I know I took the pills for medical reasons, but I feel that old addict brain kicking in giving me so not good adivice (if ya'll can relate). I ask for you prayers and support, I know I can do this I am on a small dose it's just the mental **** that gets to me.
Avatar n tn It doesn't do anything for getting the bup privately, but it will widen the availability of methadone and LAAM sources and takes the authority out of the hands of the fascist DEA bastards. I may wind up going that way. I'm still hoping there is some companion legislation still working in California that will give me what I want.
Avatar f tn My husband is such a blessing in being able to keep track of these things and observe and report. Just having him around me makes me feel like everything will be better. I am truly blessed to have him and for him to be so observant. I will make sure to tell him that you complemented his observation skills, Tuck.
2107676 tn?1388977459 I am hoping that they will chime in and stress the importance of it and how you can learn to be happy while staying clean. I try to give advice on getting clean and feel like I haven't been doing a good job of advising how to stay clean. I just don't want any of you to have to go through this again. Been there done that too many times.
Avatar n tn my doc switched me to klonapin when i found out i was pregnangt and cuz the dose to .5 a day. i had 2 babies on methadone, one had withdrawls and the other did not...both are beautiful and healthy at 3 and 9...this pregnancy was a suprise and i just put my faith in god becuse each life is so delicate and precious and even babies whos moms never even took an asprin can be born with defects. withdrawl can be worse for the baby and cause i am 11 weeks and down to .
Avatar m tn So i did so, couple days passed and I realized by me doing that i was going to run out sooner and insurance wont cover an early refill, so I called my pain specialist and he gave me a script for oxycodone 15 mg Q 120. Ok i thought this is fine. Now that means a total of 4 a day and sometimes I have to take a half or 5 a day again making me run out 1-5 days before the new script can be written.
1794671 tn?1338798991 Not sure sbout it but it caused him to need to be on antibiotics for 7 days and he is coming home in 2 days after the I.V. is out. He is doing absolutely great now!! But anyhoo... this summs it up, sort of. Thanks. My son was born 7 lbs 1 ounce No withdrawals His blood sugars dropped low and he needed to be monitored for respiratory distress due to the insulin in his system and me giving birth at 38 weeks.
Avatar n tn If I do any physical activity my hands and feet will turn very red and be very hot and I can feel the heat radiating off my hands and feet. If I am outside and the weather is hot and I am wearing flipflops my feet will get beat red and so will my hands. I dont feel any pain but it is uncomfortable because i can feel something happening in my feet and even my legs. If i take a hot shower my feet and legs become beat red and my legs get blue even and I dont know why.
Avatar m tn I started a garlic regiment of 2000mg per day and the cheek gland went away, I have started taking that same garlic regiment again yesterday for the nipple gland swelling. I am 30 male, I smoke one pack every 3 days, and currently on 47mg of Methadone for pain taken once a day, I also have been taking over the counter sleep aid one every night for the past year. It is a gelcap that has 50mg of detripephyne???????? It is the same stuff used in benidryl.
Avatar m tn TThe nights sweats were almost unberable, I would have to get up and change clothes sometimes 3 or 4 times a night, Like your friend I kept going to th doctor. They kept putting me on antibiotics and running tests and finding nothing. Finally my white blood count got so high they could not get it down. I was then sent to the hospital, they addmitted me saying I was in congestive heart failure. I was 49 . With more test they told me I had indocarditious a blood infection.
611067 tn?1458595083 Last Thursday when I was home from work sick, I watched Dr. Phil and it was about addiction. It was an extremely enlightening episode. It taught me a lot about why therapists and especially those who work with helping people to become free of addiction. I know that Suboxone has been a subject that has been debated here so many times and that some disagree with its use. However, I found out more about why they prescribe this medication (at least the experts anyway). The expert Dr.
Avatar n tn I also, get cramping and sharp pains if not treated with antibiotics and yeast meds.I know this is weird, but the taste of my discharge becomes bitter. After treatment of oral clindamycin and diflucan all my symptoms are relieved, sometimes for along time. I had read an article many yrs ago about chronic BV . I was first diagnosed with BV when I was 20, but I had no symptoms.
480448 tn?1426952138 I just suffered a relapse about 3 and half- 4 weeks ago due to more dental problems (and this was after being clean almost exactly one year) and now...........oh boy.......just over the weekend yet another tooth BROKE OFF below the gum line and is abscessed now.
