I'm interested in finding a private doctor's office (not a clinic) that will prescribe methadone. I can't afford these clinics! Does anyone know of a doctor???

I am a full time student and a single mother, I need assistance in finding a doctor who prescribes methadone because with my schedule and transportation I cannot go to the Methadone Clinic anymore.

Katy did What do you take methadone for? If you take it for opiate addiction, you won';t be able to find a doctor to prescribe it for you because a doctor can only write it for chronic pain. As for money, by the time you pay to see a doctor (Pain managment is a specialty) it will cost you more than going to the clinic. Most pain managment doctors charge $100.00+ each month plus the medication, and another problem is a doctor can close up shop, decide to cut you off, etc, but a clinic is always there. It depends what you need it for..Good luck in finding one, it should be easy, just look under pain managment doctors..

doctors can prescribe it for addiction. they have to say its for pain though. there are plenty of doctors that do this the problem is finding them, because they don't advertise for it. if they did the dea would be there quickly(happened to my last doc). you just have to ask around at the clinic. on the street. internet, til you get lucky. it more than worth it though. $100 a month plus script. methadone are very cheap ex.150 for $30, cheaper at diff pharmacies. so about $150-$200 depending on your dose compaired to $75 a week at the clinic plus gas. and not having to wake up every mornin and drive to go dose alone is worth it. oh and try suboxone doctors. most are pain docs too. if you go for pain/addiction explain situation and see what happens. addiction docs can be more understanding than you think.

My fiance is struggling with RLS & extreme pain, has had it for 20+ yrs. He has had a prescription for Methodone for the last 7 years, tried everything else & that's what finally worked. He only takes a half of one at bedtime, never to get high. The doctor that has written the scrip has released him from his office, no more scrip. He wishes he could amputate his legs it hurts so bad, hasn't slept for days! Ethically, can a doctor just cancel a Methodone scrip just like that because of a personal problem? He is mentally & physically exhausted over this--can anyone help?

I also live in Royal Oak and see the aformentioned Dr. P. The majority of his patients are there for pain meds, and he is usually willing to give you what you want, although he does treat patients differently as far as dose levels; leaving some patients on higher doses that really have no pain and not cutting their dose, while other patients who have proof of chronic pain and take as prescribed are sometimes put on lower doses and are periodically lowered even more. I know of at least 3 people who get Methadone from him that have no chronic pain or x-rays/other tests to proove their need.
You may have approached him wrong if you were tuned down. For example did you tell him that you had been on Methadone before and that it works best for you. Unfortunatelly, honesty is not always the best policy when it comes to certain doctors. Methadone is a very strong and long acting narcotic that when taken by someone with little or no opiate tolerance can be fatal at doses as low as 40mg, if xanax is used with methadone it can be extremely fatal as it raises the blood levels of the methadone in your body.
I have been on methadone for 20 plus years and credit it for saving my life, so don't get me wrong, I am a firm believer in its theraputic uses. However, you must realize when making this decision that you may end up needing it for the rest of your life! I have seen VERY few people ever sucessfully detox off of methadone and manage to stay clean, for that matter though I have seen just as few addicts using street drugs quit and remain clean. Not that it doesn't happen, it's just a hell of disease that very little isreally kown about. For me I prefer to stay on methadone and lead a stable life free of all the consequences that come with an addiction to illicit drugs. If you havn't used opiates for too long and/or don't take massive amounts I would recommend that people try all the alternatives; suboxone (I know it's pricey), detox with therapy, 12 step programs. For those who really have chronic pain that's only going to get worse the right medicine can give you your life back.
Those who saw Dr. P. please reply and let me know how you asked him for the methadone, including any history with the drug.

I am desperatly searching for a doc. in Northern Mi. (Travers city to Alpena) and anyplace between. PLEASE HELP!!

stacy Says:

Doctor T who practiced in Alpena lost his medical licence for prescribing controlled meds to anyone who paid him $75.00. He was raided by HUNT and will not be allowed to administer narcs ever again. He spent some time in jail, after which he moved back to Chicogo where he retired as anOB/GYN. Dont got me wrong, He was a very caring man who did not want his patients to feel pain that he could keep under control. Unfortunatly, you will have a near impossibility attaining your records from his office as they are now evidance. Good Luck.

I've been on Suboxone for years and it doesn't make me mean. Maybe he has some issues you know. Lot of people I know are on Suboxone and it saved their life. I've never done any illicit drugs, I just got sick of taking painkillers.
