Methadone side effects eyes

Common Questions and Answers about Methadone side effects eyes


1050179 tn?1253902786 Some pain meds worked but not for long periods of time. The meds for fibro had intolerable side effects for me. I have been on Methadone for 2 years now becuz i became pregnant and stopping pain meds would've put too much stress on the baby. She is 2 years old now.she's happy and healthy! My issue is that I have found out through my experience in taking liquid methadone that it helps my fibro pain for a long period of dose lasts 24hrs!
Avatar m tn Maybe the dosage was not high enough but I found the side effects unbearable. There are some excellent articles on the use of methadone in chronic pain management. Some physicians consider it the best alternative. It is less likely to produce euphoria and has one of the lower abuse rates of any of the "Big Dogs." I remain on hydrocodone due to my extreme sensitivity to narcotics. So we seem to be similar in that area. I wish you the very best.
Avatar n tn I too am still in recovery and still feel the side effects of my addiction. Coming around quickly I do feel its the vit/min that are very natural.
Avatar m tn I've beento the doctor on different occasions and it's nothing health wise so the only thing I could come to wuz da side effects of da methadone. I ache real bad in my legs, back, just my bones period, knees especially, allll the time I can hardly walk sometimes. I've gained ova 60 lbs n 3 months, I swell up like a balloon at times,don't sleep very well at night at all, wake up consistently all threw the night.
Avatar n tn Thanks for the diet hippy. I will try that. Does anyone know of a good descrete way to eliminate Methadone side affects. I've been off it for twelve days now. I'm still weak and just want to know how long this is going to last. Does anyone know when the side affects end for methadone??
Avatar n tn Sorry to break in but I have an urgent question. My son detoxed from heroin. His veins are all collapsed so even getting an IV into him was impossible. Now he has bruises on his neck. Is it likely that he is shooting up in his neck? What should I look for or am I just being paranoid. Thanks.
Avatar m tn 15mg of visteril isn't very much. Probably not enough to help. I took 50mg for a few weeks during and after detox. I don't use it very often anymore unless the anxiety gets really bad. The Trazodone Ga Guy mentioned is a really good sleep aid. I take 50-100mg at night and it works fine... even if I'm wired. When I was in detox they would give up to 200mg. Benzo's are a dead end. I took ambien nightly for a year and it gets to the point where you sleep, but get no real rest.
Avatar n tn Maybe cut down to two beers, for a week, and then 1 beer, and then stop? Is cutting down slowly a good way to avoid side effects? Is my body getting used to not having alcohol? My stomach now feels better, less gas, and my apetite has increased. I'm not going to have any psychological withdrawls, I feel good without drinking, I'm just worried about the physical withdrawls.
221913 tn?1372280261 you dont have to live this way you can get off methadone its not ez but it is possible and very doable go to the nurce and tell them you want off they will bring you off sloewly it takes time it took me 8 1/2 mo to come off of 150mg but I did it and my life is so much better now methadone is an evil drug it has lots of side effects some like your having time to break the chains good luck and God bless........
2201043 tn?1340705626 As for methadone being poison, arent they all, especially opiates with tylenol in them. In all my time on methadone,I have never suffered any toxic side effects;I take tons of supplements though. It is a medical that true opiates, which methadone is not, has no harmful effects on any organ or organ system. This is opiates with no other additives. I wish I was not on methadone but if I came off 30 mgs Iwould have go dance with the devil at a pain clinic. I got shot with a .
1948474 tn?1329157864 i just hate feeling that I think he's high if these are just side effects from the methadone. I'm very frustrated.
Avatar n tn I found it highly informative and I believe that I can continue my intake of Dr. Pepper without serious side effects. I don't drink any other caffeinated beverages so I might only slightly decrease my intake of the Dr. Pepper just to make sure. The worse part of physical withdrawal for me was the alternating chills/hot flashes/sweat breakouts. I can see how caffeine could contribute to that part of the physical aspect of withdrawal.
Avatar n tn sassypnksox is not an addict and is looking for answers and I just want to be fair to her b/f who may or may not be using on the side. I look wasted most of the day with blood shot eyes from methadone and my ex-wife (still living togeter) is in the same boat as ssassypnksox due to my past actions. She asks if I am using and I say no but she heard that a thousand times. Methadone is a very powerful drug and I dont think you can put a finger on how everyone is to act on it.
Avatar n tn oxycontin - I find that taking them as prescribed keeps me fairly stable, but the side-effects seem much worse than methadone so far...I'm probably suffering a bit from methadone withdrawal since I suddenly switched medications (methadone to oxycontin), but fortunatly I still have a few methadone tablets left to ease the transfer - I'm alternating methadone with the oxycontin to try and stabilize myself (oxy is hard to sleep on, so I take methadone in the evening).
1720012 tn?1310049470 I would run the other way if someone was to offer it to me I know you think your backed into a corner right now but you could start to cut your use down when you got down some jump off it would be very doable like that the clinics are a one way street into years of use no one plans on spending 6 1/2 yrs there but I did and there are people who have been there 10+ yrs and look like the walking dead I dont even want to get into all the side effects there not pleasant and sertantly not worth the tr
Avatar m tn First of all methadone does block the effects of opiates if you know anything about it. You won't feel high if you try to use heroin or other opiates. And if you read what I wrote you would have noticed that I'm not on methadone anymore, the last day I took it was feb 27, I have been using opiates for the time being because I don't want to deal with the withdrawals. Someone gave me a fentanyl patch and said it would help with the wd.
Avatar n tn well after 1 yr i wanted out, it changed me (the methadone)my personality and my motivation, so i started detox 6 months ago at 5mgs a week and stopped at 18 mgs the whole time still not being myself. well a month ago i said to my counceler im going away out of state for a wedding, i need to finish this, so i went down to 9 and then had to walk off i figured a week and a half ill be o.
Avatar n tn I've been on methadone maintenance for 13 years and am almost 50; I wondered if there had been any research done on the effects of methadone on contracting osteoporosis. I'm not menopausal (/yet/) but am concerned what the future might have in store.
221913 tn?1372280261 I was still doing 2ml here and then 2 ml there while on the Methadone; could that be what has been causing the above side effects? Grant you I have since stopped taking the Opium all together but it hasn't been long enough for me to actually be able to tell yet. It's either that combination whcih is my own fault, or the Methadone itself.
Avatar f tn I was just wondering if you could advise me as to what signs to watch for if I don't catch him right away. Like what the normal side effects within a day or two after that I would be looking for.
Avatar f tn 8mg daily),to give me chance to rebuild my life. Subutex isnt a miracle drug it has side effects like any other drug,but its better than methadone which you can use on top of,where as subutex fills the receptors in the brain making heroin useless if you were to use.If hes wanting a short term detox the keyworker will probably recommend subutex,because methadone is generally for medium to long term use. If you have anymore questions just ask me.Take care chris P.
1481418 tn?1287881514 Can someone please tell me if methadone gives you the same side effects as Oxycontin?.. I'm not to sure how this all works but my boyfriend has been an Oxycontin addict for almost 2 years and is now started the Methadone treatment.. It seems like hes doing the same actions as he was as on Oxycontin nodding out, falling asleep sitting up and his face is breaking out in hives, all the same affects as Oxycontin!!!...
1502361 tn?1290543830 There are lot less side effects,withdrawals are like with heroin (last like 3-7days) not like Methadone or Bupren. from 7 to 30 DAYS! THE WORST AGONY!!!But still there is tapper 3rd question: I have had some side effects in begining like rash,red dots on my face,scars on my back and stomach and stuff like that.Ordinary histamine reaction.
Avatar n tn My question is may i have some of the side effects of Methadone? My heroin habit was 3 grams a day for 9 years and now im Rx.d 130mgs, should I still be on methadone and is this too high of a dose of a 25year old woman that weighs 125? Im Rx.d the xanax cr 2mg with 130mgs of liquid methadone? IS THIS A NORMAL THING. I went to the hospital 2 days ago due to not having methadone so im not doing it cold turkey. MAY I HAVE INFO ON SUBOXONE? Is it a better choice?
Avatar m tn i can sleep moderately well if i take a clonidine, and some valerian root pills. i am just worried about the side effects of them, especially the valerian root pills. sleeping unmedicated last night wasn't nearly as refreshing as with the clonidine and valerian root.
Avatar n tn I'm now on 30 mgs of methadone a day and haven't been on the Lortab for over a week again. No withdrawals. The side effects from the Methadone at 30 mgs are also so severe (somewhat TOO HIGH of a dose at 30 mgs.) that I not only do NOT want to go any higher than 30, but got a pill cutter today to go down to 25 mgs or so. 30 has me nodding off at work. NOT cool. The reason I'm posting this?
Avatar f tn everyones different. it was just the opposite for me. after getting off it, I suffered what all long term users do, and thats energy and motivation drop off. so not being as active has made me gain weight after quiting.....not a ton but about 10-15 lbs.
Avatar n tn I dont believe methodone is that thing.. methodone is such a long lasting opiate with so many side effects that continues to ruin lives when used out side of the walls of a detox center or in someone with cronic pain. THe baby will have worse WD from the methodone when born than the hydro. That was all I was thinking.. I know Marce's doc that she works for says that.
