Methadone side effects rash

Common Questions and Answers about Methadone side effects rash


Avatar m tn i would be tied to their prescription pads instead of living my life free and sober and happy and clean, with no side effects. Personally, i would consider not taking methadone and going through the flue like symptoms for a short while, and taking your life and your health back from the doctors. Just my opinion. Best of luck with yours. I've been clean and sober for 13+ years, i'm glad i'm not saying i've been on methadone for 13+ years,WHY would i do THAT to myself?
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 m tn Sorry man. I tried searchin for you but only found other posts by you on other sites lol. Alls I got right now is a quote..."Been on Lamictal 8 years. Good results. No neg.side effects though I did look out for the rash. (Bipolar 1). Taking lots of other stuff, but Lamictal seems to have good results with minimal side effects--but it also takes a long tim to get to a therapeutic dose."--Suzy I know youve seen alot of stuff like this so i will keep searchin.

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 m tn Some of those symptoms may be similar to withdrawal side effects of Incivek changing the effect of Methadone, so it may be hard to differentiate. And then there is the psychological component of both triple tx and Methadone to consider as you experience side effects. I would also encourage you to write down your side effects so your doctor can help you determine what's what.

Avatar f tn One side doesn't like to put patients on drugs as strong as methadone and morphine because of the risk for addiction and side effects. The other side maintains it's worth the risk. My doctor said I wouldn't get addicted, given my prior narcotic history, which consisted of a three-day morphine drip and periodic Vicodin prescriptions.
Avatar f tn We tried about 10 medicines before putting me on Methadone. It's been so long that I can't remember all the names like I use to. I know we tried, Maxalt, Neurontin, Topomax, Immitrex, Morpheine and a blood pressure medicine. I use to go get shots of Morphine or Demorahl. They would add an anti inflamatory & an anti nausea to my shot too. I tried so many drugs. Some worked & some didn't. The ones that worked gave me horrible side effects.
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.
417564 tn?1287986427 He called the clinic and was told, these reactions were normal. On the 2nd day, Matthew became more miserable with his side effects and again called the clinic, and again told everything was normal. On Wednesday, Day 3, when he complained Matt was told his body would "adjust". On Thursday, Day 4, Matthew was supposed to have a follow-up appointment with the doctor, but the appointment never took place.
Avatar n tn When methadone is taken under medical supervision, long-term maintenance causes no adverse effects to the heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, bones, blood, brain, or other vital body organs. Methadone produces no serious side effects, although some patients experience minor symptoms such as constipation, water retention, drowsiness, skin rash, excessive sweating, and changes in libido. Once methadone dosage is adjusted and stabilized or tolerance increases, these symptoms usually subside.
Avatar f tn On thing about Hep C side effects is that the most severe side effects can usually be treated and controlled with prescription medications. If the side effects are kept under control, treatment is not nearly as bad as it the side effects are ignored. Plus, with Hep C treatment, the side effects come and go and change weekly. Plus the severity of the side effects vary from day to day and week to week and from person to person. Some people do not get bad side effects.

Avatar m tn This might sound stupid, but I have been tapering down from methadone for about a month. I`ve gone from 40mg to 20mg in the past 2 weeks. Every day I go through bouts of itching,mostly when I go to bed. It`s like having chiggers or something. My arms, hands,feet,face itch and my head gets itching so bad I can`t get away from it until I take a Benadryl. I have to admit that taking 2 Benadryl before bed helps a LOT for the itching and even being able to sleep.
Avatar m tn I hope this helps. Warning Signs of Serious Side Effects Some side effects with Lantus are potentially serious and should be reported immediately to your healthcare provider.
1944426 tn?1324092586 how long have you had the rash?? you should see a doctor. Heroin Side Effects, Allergic Most patients contact us because of their experience with serious Heroin side effects from habitual use. Allergic reactions to opiate-based drugs can sometimes prove fatal.
767538 tn?1276578920 How did you stop the methadone? Did you tamper off of it? I was put on morphine release caps but did not like the side effects. I had to give them the remaining amount of pills in order to be placed on 25 mg of Fent. This did nothing for me and I had some percosets left so it got me through until he upped the dose to 75 mg ever 72 hours. I feel like it only works for 2 days and I have trouble keeping it on my skin. I was told that I have to buy this $30.
Avatar n tn it was working great until i got a HORRID rash and was scratchiny my legs basically off! it was eating my skin away! sadly he refered me back to my normal ddr for surgery (hysterestomy- that i Ddo NOT want.. i'm only 25 and want more schildren w/ my hubby ;..( ) very emotional situation for me here... but i have a bunch of suxobone left and i wanted to try and get back on them from the percocet.... any advise...
Avatar f tn In one way I can understand his point about it not being an adequate pain managment drug and suggest methadone. BUT the side effects that come with methadone usually are way worse than the benefits. Did you explain to him you needed it for opiate addiction and not pain management?
1187071 tn?1279373298 She asked me if I knew anything about the patch, I told her I have heard a few things about it, I told her my friend at work was telling me today that she is on it and loves it she told me that when she was on pain meds they made her very tired and the patch has no side effects for her. then the dr asked me what has helped my pain in the past, I told her that percocet worked good on my pain.
Avatar n tn I highly doubt he had an allergic reaction. Whether you're allergic to vicodin or not, one of the most common side effects. Try taking a benadryl, or perhaps a non drowsy antihistamine for itching relief.
Avatar m tn you've taken a toxic level of acetaminophine.I've seen a lot of research saying that methadone is best for side effects,doesn't effect the antivirals,and seems(it is difficult to get conclusive statements on this last one)to damage the liver the least.Any thoughts?
1187071 tn?1279373298 You cannot exceed the prescribed dosage or your body can experience some dangerous side effects. You also cannot mix other opiates with this medication. Methadone stops the effects of other opiates and over dose is a real threat. One of my concerns are expressed by Sherry. Where are you obtaining these other narcotics? Do not endanger your reputation or place yourself in a situation that could bring on criminal charges. You will never be treated by any physician under those circumstances.
Avatar m tn It is arguably the best drug for BP II with the best side effects profile, provided you don't get a rash. Lamictal is famous for having a risk of a life-threatening rash, but the chances are only 1/1000. About 1/10 will get a benign rash, and the risk is lower if you do a really slow titration. But lithium comes with risk of thyroid and kidney problems, so nothing's perfect.
2194148 tn?1397327075 Do you have a pain pump yet that can deliver pain medication directly to your spine sparing your other body systems from the horrid side effects of opiates? Has your physician tried methadone or Subaxone in an attempt to lower tolerance? Unfortunately the higher the dose of pain killers the lower the tolerance to pain you can have as it dorks up your pain receptors. The incontinence can be from the opiates as well as could very well be from possible cord impingement or nerve damage.
8944740 tn?1400757441 Most drugs you cannot just stop cold turkey because of side effects. I would let your doctor tell you how to get off of the Phenergan safely. According to a resource health book I have on drugs and supplements called " The Canadian Guide to Drugs and Supplements" published by Reader's Digest.
Avatar f tn I have been clean and sober for 6 and a half years from heroin and methadone as well. I keep reminding myself, that if I feel bad from side effects, this is a cake walk compared to kicking heroin, or methadone withdrawls. You'll do fine, let me know if you need anything.
Avatar f tn By the way, I am so relieved to be off the Fentenyl but since I still have a lot of pain to deal with on a daily basis so I can even function, I have just started a new medication called Nucynta - Health Name -Tapentadol. So far I have had no adverse side effects and it has really helped me with my pain without giving me that "High" feeding!
Avatar f tn I read your posts with interest and by no means am I singling you out because lord knows I do have other choices available in this same thread to disagree with. Some of your points are contrary to current knowledge when it comes to SOC and PIs, both in science and economic terms. And some of your speculation I thought was masqueraded as fact when no apparent facts are available to support them.
