Methadone prices

Common Questions and Answers about Methadone prices


Avatar n tn Ok, I need some info on Methadone, the only methadone I have taken to detox are the 40mg wafers either orange or white in color, or the 20mg Methadose pills........... The longest period of time I have ever taken these for is 5 days at a time. I only take a MAXIMUM high of 15mg the first day of detox. I haven't taken anything for over 65 days, actually probably more then that, I haven't kept count.
Avatar n tn Any medical doctor can prescribe methadone for pain relief. Methadone clinics are for methadone maintainence (for addicts) and not for chronic pain sufferers. They are governmentally subsidized which is why I assume your doctor referred you there and not to a pain management specialist. I am quite surpised the methadone clinic accepted you.
Avatar f tn The reason is that if they did you wouldn't go there and pay their ridiculous prices. Ill tell you if anyone is looking to invest in a business Methadone clinic is the way to go! Get the Methadone for dirt cheap then charge the patients an obscene amount if money. Sorry its an observation. those of you who have seen the way of the clinics know what I am talking about!
Avatar n tn So I'm gonna try the cold turkey without having to go back to the dang on clinic....10 bucks a day was killing $3.00 gas prices. Methadone is good for some pll. But when u dont have the money at the clinic...they dont care & will detox yer butt in a sec. But if u can find a personal doc & have insurance then thats good. But I would rather go off perc's anyday then to go through what I did a yr ago. But good luck to you!!!
Avatar n tn i have been on a clinic for 25 years and am finally down to 3 mgs of methadone a day. I have terrible leg cramps and cannot sleep at night. Darvon N seems to help, but does anyone know if this is just making me drag out my withdrawal? What can i take for the leg cramps? Anyone that has withdrawn from methadone knows what i am talking about. I have to work so it is hell not sleeping much and waking up with leg aches all night.
Avatar n tn I wouldn't think of that methadone maintenance as addiction. However, if you felt that methadone wasn't working for you then you can now utilize buprnorphine subligual medication at a qualified physician office for either detox needs post detox needs. With the approval of Buprenorphine, many more patients and addicted people should be seeking more treatment for overuse, abuse and tolerance issues that evolve from long term use of opiods...
272729 tn?1194280557 the pharmacists are protesting the governments plans to reduce methadone prices so that the pharmacists would be operating at a loss.
Avatar n tn I've been pn methadone for 5 years. I am now detoxing and started at 80mg and after a few months and am on 25mg and am now wanting to use again and am taking Xanax to help but tis not from a doctor and am now going to a doctor about the depression and anxiety and there giving me lexapro and clonidine. The clonidine makes me to out of it and don't like taking it,and the lexapro makes you gain to much weight, and am looking for someone that could offer some help.
Avatar n tn Seems to me like you would be one who would need to taper off of methadone/suboxone. I have used methadone for the past 4 years and and I have been going cold turkey for the past 10 days and am just now starting to get the shakes and stuff under control....I am sorry to be so blunt but methadone is evil to ME..and I too have done oc's and vic's and perc's and tabs and any other thing with codeine in it. someone will come along soon to give you better advice..
Avatar n tn I've been slowly tapering off of a 15 year Methadone maintainence program for about 2 years now. Roughly dropping 5 milligrams every month or so. About a month ago my dose was at 3 mgs. At that point I really didn't feel to bad during the day although the nights were horrible due not being able to sleep. At that point I decided to just stop the meth all together, rather than prolonging the agony of dropping from 3 -2, then 2-1 etc.
Avatar f tn My husband is starting to taper down on methadone and we've read that there are a lot of supplements that may help. I'm getting ready to order but I wondered if anyone could recommend a good multivitamin. An article I read said that you need a multivitamin with a strong mineral component and that it should be in gel cap form only because methadone patients have poor gut function and can't absorb a regular pill as well.
1477820 tn?1287435681 What is a good dose to be at for methadone maintance? i was snorting 340mg a day of oxy....ive been addicted to some sort of opiate for the last 5 yrs....ive had problems with meth, coke, e, alcohol....ive been going to methadone clinic for 5 mos now...on 105mg a day...still have cravings to use....i thought craving went away if u were on methadone?

Avatar m tn Hey y'all my name is Kevin and I've been an opiate abuser for close to 5 years now. Just recently I've stopped using illegal drugs and "switched" to methadone at a clinic that is over an hour away from where i live. I've been on methadone for about 3 months now (tapered down to 18mg) and I'm really tired of driving to the clinic every day (especially since gas prices are at their peak). My main reason for quitting is that I've discovered that methadone isn't helping me at all...
Avatar n tn I believe you have to be down to 20mg of methadone to transition to sub so you would have to taper for awhile.
Avatar m tn I have went to Suboxone.Com and found about 30 DRS. in this area. Prices range from 2 to 3 hundred for a visit. I know the drill about the short time for suboxone and have written down FLaddicts regime of her own, as it seems to have worked. I get my meds through a Physician. No street buying. I met someone at work whos brother is on 400 milligrams of Methadone a day, Yes 400. He is in a pickle. He can give me a 40 milligram wafer.
747245 tn?1233948525 Has anyone gained weight and sucessfully lost it while still on methadone? How ? Anyone loose hair on methadone? Anyone not have a period on methadone? Anyone gain weight on methadone then loose it after quiting methadone? Thanks for your help and advice!!!
Avatar f tn What is Methadone?: Methadone is an opiate that was first introduced after World War II as an alternative to morphine. Methadone was originally thought to be less addictive because of its extremely long half life. Today, methadone is used as an analgesic for pain management and more popularly as replacement therapy for heroin and other opiate addictions. Methadone is a cheap alternative to other opiate based medications which outweighs it potency when prescribing.
Avatar f tn I am not having an easy time at all with my wd ct from methadone. I am on the phone right now crying uncontrollably and he said I HAVE TO GO BACK TO THE METHADONE on monday. I am wayyyyy depressed and the wd isnt any easier. I am scared.......................
417564 tn?1287986427 The bodies of addicts (especially those on methadone) does not break down vitamins properly due to poor gut function (that can be restored with vitamins). The only vitamins to take are soft gels, liquid, injectable or chewable. The calcium/magnesium blends from vitaminsthatwork have taken it a step further...this is in powder form and is vinegar based therefore making it soluble and easily absorbed in your body. We did not anticipate results that we are getting.
Avatar n tn I want to be put onto Suboxone and would like to know if there is a place to get it free? Very cheap? I have heard that Methadone Clinics can prescribe it now but I coudn't find if Alabama does this. I have spent all night researching this and have came up with nothing of help. I have always hidden this from my loved ones with the exception of my mother. She passed away in July. I would love to keep this a secret from the family.
1176246 tn?1415015517 I was once on 40mg of hydrocone a day. Then, methadone, starting at 20mg and with the help of a wonderful legit Dr. I found myself walking out the pharmacy with a prescription for 110mg a day. what a country. The biggest drug dealer wears a stethoscope and the biggest distributor has "every day low prices". Anyway, my chronic knee pain got me a lot of legal medication. Methadone, Hydrocodone, Valium, Klonopin, Soma...and a few others.
Avatar m tn I got tired of paying the high prices and seen a Dr who prescribed me Vic 7.5, and did those for about a year or so. Suddenly again I got tired of "pill chasing" when I was out, and made an appointment with the Doc. I told the Dr that I was abusing them, and he offered to help me. He did alright, put me on Methadone 5mg x3 daily. Call me naive, but I thought I was in there, conquered it! Little to my knowledge it was worse.
Avatar m tn I am not trying to put a price on my health and being clean/sober. Just worrying that I may end up in a state run methadone clinic, going back to using is just a frightening. Thanks for reading, if I can help anyone in some way, I'd be glad to try.
224049 tn?1204594715 Now on 10 to 20 mil of methadone tried to quit made it 60 hours with no valium or clonidine.I just coudn't do it. I am thinking of a local hospital,they will go by how much money I make.I am willing to run and excercise while detoxing and tapering.A little history I started with vicodin forcar accident.
228686 tn?1211558307 Good to see some of you are still here. For those who don't know me, I've been doing the "long term plan" of detoxing off methadone. Basically dropping down in dose every month or so in dose. My dose is presently...lord, I'd guess at somewhere between a half a milligram and a milligram, it's hard to measure. I've started skipping days in preparation for when I finally do stop.
1429136 tn?1287213202 (I bet it is getting cold there - it is already getting cold here) Since witdrawals from methadone 2.5 years, I have been so cold natured.
1541838 tn?1294330771 Methadone and Sub come with their own set of problems. They are both a powerful narcotic and wd's are usually really rough.
Avatar f tn when you are detox. off methadone? Or is it hard either way? I am detoxing off methadone, but have not hit the tough pain yet.
1508698 tn?1360219310 Some of these places are just suboxone or methadone clinics in disguise. For example our methadone clinic is called the evv treatment center.Noone who does not go there would ever know that it is nothing more than a methadone store. If you are concerned about cost(as I always the state mental health places have very very reasonable prices and if you want to learn you can get just as good quality there as you can in a high dollar facility-imo as far as outpatient goes. Hope this helps.
