Methadone with adderall

Common Questions and Answers about Methadone with adderall


673186 tn?1225987525 I personally tried severalk times my first two years if college and I never had taken more than 30 ngs and that seemed like a very high dose and i gotwith very jittery and a huge efffect. A few months ago I was diagnosed with ADHD and instead of Adderall I tried Strattera knowing my addictive personality and past with drug abuse.
Avatar m tn As far as I am aware there are no contraindications for methadone and adderal...... but the jittery and non-focused part may well be getting used to the amphetamine dose...could take a couple days to become acclimated......And then again you are basically taking a downer (methadone) with speed (adderal) - - so there could be adjustments to doses made...... I would suggest that you post this question on the Addiction Expert Forum and get an MD's opinion........
Avatar f tn Hi well first off taking a bezo with methadone can be dangerous so im not impressed with the doctor doing this many people have dyed from this combo...
4597556 tn?1383308643 Hopefully in a few months you will be methadone free! Think about that and work on having a good plan in place to deal with all the mental issues this addiction brings. Be patient and kind to yourself.
Avatar f tn With all our individualized options, patients on Methadone are inpatient and stay for at least 7 to 10 days with us so we can assist and assess their mental and physical health once detox is completed. There should be no set rule on how the patients are cared for and for how long they should stay because we are dealing with human beings who have different physical and emotional needs.
374262 tn?1215201805 I tried the methadone treatment again... I hate that stuff. 3rd times a charm. I thought I would die this time. Always, by the 3rd day I am deathly ill. Can't even keep my saliva down. Now, my back and bones ache. I feel like death. 2 days without that. Good thing is I don't withdraw because I throw up so much that I guess I rid myself of it that way. I don't know how people can take it. I think I have a serious reaction from it. My throat nearly closes up and I can't breath by the 3rd day.
621290 tn?1226723861 i DO find that Adderall does help with w/d symptoms to an extent. there are reports on the web about people mixing Xanax with Suboxone (buprenorphine) and dying. the reports seem to gloss over that these people were SHOOTING these substances. so in the case that you are shooting them. don't. Adderall can be psychologically habit-forming, but i don't even like it enough to abuse it. feels like i drank 20 cups of coffee. yuck. and good luck getting off the Subs.
Avatar f tn when my husband was really bad he was going back and forth with cocaine, percocets,methadone, vikes, benzos and ritalin too... and i really think his bottom or his breakdown was definately a combination of all the drugs combined...but the ritalin really screwed him up BAD... i do know how you feel...the thought of taking nothing scares me too...but at the same time i am excited about it...with me its more than that...
Avatar n tn I recently discovered that my 49 year old wife has been taking my sons adderall for a year. She has been taking 20mg. per day. She also takes celexa for depression. I am concerned that she is addicted and will have withdrawal problems. I have hidden the adderall from her and she no longer has it available. She relizes that she has a problem and has commited to quit. What are the withdrawal symptoms, how soon after she has quit to they show, how long to they last and how can I help.
Avatar m tn All I know is that I used to get mine off the streets..I do not have ADHD so when I would snort these with my Methadone, you could only go figure..Up & Down and all spun and wired up to the max..I had to take a benzo at night or early morning to come down. Well back in 2012 I c/t all 3 meds at once. Number one I got down from a 12 yr prescribe dose on the Dones to 30mg and jumped. I also did not know how bad a benzo w/d could be or how dangerous it is for some..SO now we talk Adderral.
6601982 tn?1383754936 Glad you are ok. Adderall is one of the worst things you can take during opiate detox. We are already so anxious and crazy feeling that it ampifies everything and makes it worse. The few times I've taken it- 10mg; 1/2 of what my daughter takes I felt so jittery and speedy. If you have ADHD it calms you down; if you don't, you are taking speed. Keep on being strong; we are all in this together.
Avatar n tn I just recently got a perscription to adderall to help with school. Will the adderall help with my withdrawal symptoms from the methadone?? I want to get off the methadone so bad - i just dont have the will power to go through the withdrawal.. Can anyone help??
Avatar m tn Im 17 now and I'm taking at least 100-120 mg of Adderall every other day. I use it to cope with depression and about 7 or 8 months ago I took a lot to try and kill myself but obviously it didn't work. I don't know why they're still letting me take it though. I was just wondering how to get rid of this addiction. Should I just quit cold turkey or what?
Avatar f tn Now you need to be honest with your OB and psychiatrist. Adderall is something that needs to be tapered down especially since you are pg. Getting honest about our addiction is a huge burden lifted off our shoulders. Do what is right for you and the baby. Congrats on not drinking!!
Avatar f tn Is it safe to take 30mgs of adderall, 4-8mgs of Xanax and 4-6mg of suboxone a day?
Avatar f tn Hi..I came off the Methadone back in 2012 and I was adding Adderall to it and snorting it for the Buzz on. I would take a Benzo at night to come down..This time around was way different then the other opiates alone. Having a mix of drugs to c/t makes it a bit more intense or it can go on a bit longer too. You were on the Subs so that should help a bit for sure. Each med pulls our nervous system different ways let alone what you do to all the brain chems/hormones and transmitters..
6601982 tn?1383754936 I scared myself on that stuff too, but I was taking a lot of methadone with it. I was ignorant of the drugs I was taking. I google anything I take now. I even had an intense reaction to DLPA, an amino acid from a health food store.
Avatar n tn feeling lost kinda clung to them for much longer, this is a much different type of withdrawal, so this is why patience will play a huge factor in your success, as to many people who are addicted to methadone want to rush the process, you cant rush methadone, if ya do, it will kick ya in the butt, & you will see all the horror storys that you have heard about from methadone withdrawals come true.
Avatar m tn I will say that the Methadone detox took a bit longer then the other opiates, BUT I also was snorting Adderall from the streets (no adhd) with mine and took a Benzo at night to come down..Man what a DETOX!!! I detoxed at the age 56 back in 2012..I sure have learned a whole bunch about this disease..Both from AA/NA and in a Scientific way..It is the Brain chems/hormones and transmitters that take time to balance back after the removal of these stims.
4597556 tn?1383308643 The way you feel may be related to something totally seperate from the Methadone. You're also on other meds...and with the anxiety, it's no wonder you're tired. Follow up with the cardiologist. That's not anything to blow off.
605114 tn?1252111996 it's weird being out in public post methadone. I didn't realise before how much my daily opiate dose boosted me up and made me able to deal with just the general every day things of life. Supermarkets are Bizarre Places post methadone. Gosh, all that bright light, and colour, and choice and People! So today was the first day (in the last 30 days) that I've actually ventured into a supermarket to get some food... I found it disconcerting. I don't think I enjoyed it too much.
5957912 tn?1379940572 I have experience with Most of those drugs. I was snorting Adderral that I got off the streets with my Methadone and took a benzo at night. I did not think anything about the adderral or benzo withdraw. Oh I knew about the other opiates and Methadone w/ds but not the other ones until I got on here and Read alot..BUT If these meds are prescribed and they are for a reason. I did not have the ADD so the Adderral was like legal crank or coke.
Avatar f tn He hasn't ever suggested any type of NA or AA and now he has presribed him Adderall (with a a diagnosis of Adult Adhd)!! WHY ON EARTH WOULD would you ever prescribe a highly addictive stimulant to someone who is addicted to stimulants?? Now perhaps the ADHD diagnosis is correct (hints the addictive personality,etc.) but EVERYTHING i have read on Adderall says "you should not take Adderall if you have a history of drug and/or alcohol abuse".
Avatar f tn Tapered down five milligrams every single day but towards the end I began substituting the lack of methadone with heroin for about a week. Monday was my last line of heroin and on tuesday I took three v icodins. That night my withdrawals were intense, second the same. My worst symptoms are always the wls. So on day three I was given a very small does of chlotopan.1mg I slept five hours yesterday and eight today. Im feeling much better just extremely sluggish.
Avatar f tn That said, there are many active posters right now who are trying to get OFF methadone and having a very hard time with it. Methadone is a synthetic opioid with an extremely long half-life in the body, making withdrawals from it take significantly longer than almost any other opioid. To switch from a mild vicodin/percoset habit like yours to methadone would be trading up to a much stronger drug. Instead of methadone, have you thought about kicking your addiction completely?
Avatar f tn I need to know if you could recommend a anxiety medicine that is safe with methadone and interferon. I am trying to get him to discuss his adhd with his doctor. Please, any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
Avatar f tn Tapering usually minimizes WD's but not with Methadone. Well, I shouldn't say that; if you didn't taper you'd be in pretty bad shape!! Worse than right now,I think. Methadone likes to "stick around" (long half life) so that's part of the problem. And it's just a tough one to detox from what I've seen. It takes longer than most opiates by a few weeks BUT you feel increasingly better every day! Patience... Are you taking anything to help you sleep?
Avatar n tn The only NEW thing was methadone. So, I felt with it for a lil while, then I just got tired of it all! I saw it as im in a clinic that gets paid to give me drugs...what is the difference in me getting it on my own?! I went in there to stop drugs not find a new one that makes me fat! So, I started dropping my dose. My counsiler didn't like it but I told her" ITS MY FKN TREATMENT N LIFE! NOT URS! so I got dwn to 10mg and then said FCK IT. ( which I do not advise).
Avatar n tn Hi there... For the past 5-6 months i have been on methadone, and it has def helped me. And for the pas 2-3 months, I have been weaning down fron 40md a day to now 15mg a day. Just this morning, I went to the clinic, and was getting ready to start my 21 day detox from the 15mg, but first, I had to take a pregnancy test for them. To my wonderful amazement, I am pregnant! That is a great thing, but my husband and I were trying to wait until I was off the methadone totally.
4407520 tn?1363015465 <> So I need to do a hardcore detox. My counselor said more than 5mg a week is too much, but she doesn't understand that I'm dying. It's my life or death, I feel. As long as I'm not having hardcore pain from withdrawal, I will live. I just want my body to start working like it should! I started at 86mg and now I'm at 70mg. I need to speed up this process because I can't live like this anymore.
