methadone 10mg pill with 54 172 on one side ca you find something equal that looks like like this

i want to take the real methadone out of the bottlesd trade it for somthing that looks like the real thing ## tan capsule with the word meta on the side clear capsule with tan granules in side any ideas what this is ## Since Methadone is a prescription drug and a controlled substance, all markings on the tablets are logged with the FDA and cannot be used on some other drug. That means, it will be easy for someone to tell if you switch them. Not to mention the fact that it is very dangerous, you could send someone into withdrawals and/or cause an allergic reaction if you use another medication that they react badly to. Concerned Parent: The capsule marked Meta are Metamucil, a fiber laxative and available over the counter. Are there any other questions? ## Don't you dare do this. I...

methadone different liquid color orange

I usually take methadone i get from the clinic but i wasted a bottle with dirty water out of the sink.. I was given a bottle of orange liquid from a family member who says it's methadone from hospice. I'm still scared to take it cuz ive only seen liquid methadone in pink and this is an almost clear orange color. ## I have been taking liquid methodone for the last 4 years for opiate dependancy. I was at a previous clinic getting 120 mil for the last 4 years. I have recently moved to another clinic and they have moved my dose to 200 mil, and I am feeling sick later in the day. My question is, why is the 200 mil not holding me till the next mornings dose at this new clinic when at the old clinic the 120 mil held me till the next morning dose. I am currently taking the Roxaine metho...

Methadone clinic stopped dose increase at 85 ml

My Methadone dose increase was stopped by my counselor at 85 ml. I'm on week 5 fresh off Fentanyl and Hydromorphone. The crazy thing is my counselor looked pleased that she stopped my dose as if she caught a drug addict trying to use drugs lol??? So I was told to see the doctor, I entered the office and my counselor came in with me she jumped on the patient's bed Indian style and a smirking grin as my doctor asked what was my issue? I said I'm trying to get to a blocking dose of methadone like 120/140. The doctor says there is no such thing as blocking does of methadone and told me No. What do any of you think about this? Feedback is appreciated good and bad thanks. ## I'm on my lowest dose of 120 since 1970. They said then that 40 was the blocking dose and you couldn...

Methadone 10mg Asc 116

What company makes these ASC 116 and when did they come out on the market? ## January, 2012 ## That date is correct and the manufacturer is Ascend Laboratories, LLC. (NDC 67877-0116) ## What is the difference between this pill and the 10mg methadone white round pill labled 54/142 and scored on the other side, is it just the manufacturer? I usually get the 54/ 142 and pay about $22 for 150 I had to go to a different pharmacy this month and they gave me the ascertain 116 ones and charged me $90 for the same 150!! I mean I don't have insurance but this seems outrageous. Could it maybe just have been the pharmacy I went to? Also, I want to make sure there wont be a difference in my pain management on these pills. Thanks ## hey these are made by ascend labs and there relatively new but t...

private Dr to prescribe methadone in Montana

I live in the Flathead Valley in Montana and have been going to the most horrible pain clinic for the past 3 years. Out of no were I have been accused of selling my meds and now have to come in once a month for office visits and take drug urine tests. I can not stand this callous treatment nor afford the cost of this anymore. Does anyone know of a private Dr. in the area that writes presciptions for methadone? ## Dr. Clyde Knecht in Libby, mt. ## Dr. Knecht is not accepting new patients.

Anyone heard of methadone clinics watering down methadose?

Anyone heard of methadone clinics "watering down" the methadose? There have been people at my clinic complaining of getting sick in the evening all of a sudden. ## It is more likely that they've gotten tolerant to whatever dose they are currently taking. That can happen with any medication, when you are taking it for awhile at the same dosage. There is no precise time frame, it can take years for some people and just a few months for others, it depends on their bodies. Learn more Methadone details here. Has anyone discussed it with those in charge? ## You said people complaining all of a sudden. I would have to ask approximately how many, how long have they been on their dose, and what if any other issues they might have in common. Such as alcohol, benzos, and any illicit dr...

Also I'm about to take my daily 60- 80mgs of oxymorphone ER. If I drink another couple cups of Grapefruit juice is that gonna happen to me again or does it only pertain to Methadone?

Just saying bcuz that's what part of the problem that we have now and why the public have such a negative perception of methadone patients.They see some of us nodding off on the streets and in public places and think it's the methadone that has the person like that but it's the othe...

Methadone and surgery

I'm having surgery for knee replacement and this is the first time I've had surgery and general anaesthetic while on methadone. Can anyone advise me about the safety of this and how they will treat post-operative pain? ## I have had two surgerys while on methadone, you will be fine they gave me percocet for pain and it took the edge off which is what it should do, alot of people think they should be pain free after a surgrey while taking pain pills but that is not the case hope all goes well ## Hello. If you are on methadone maintenance for opiate addiction, you will need to tell the surgon so he/she knows how to treat your pain and your general sedation. Methadone won't help your post op pain, so he/she will have to prescribe another type of painkiller. One of the reasons i...

can you be approved for weight loss surgery while being prescribed methadone opiate addiction

I am being prescribed methadone for opiate addiction been of all other drugs for 4 years I'm in the process of trying to have weight loss surgery and trying to find out if they will let me have it done since I'm on methadone? ## Hello, Brandy! How are you? Have you talked to the doctor or clinic that would be doing the surgery? There is a chance that you may not be able to, since if you're planning something like stomach banding, it can affect how some medications are absorbed. ## It puts you at greater risks for complications with anesthesia. For elective surgery it is a risk most drs would rather not take. Talk to your surgeon. ## I am having Gastic Sleeve surgery and have been on 110 mg of Methadone for 10 months. My surgeon has been wonderful. All is OK with anethesia an...

Liquid METHADONE TO GO ON HOLIDAY

i have booked a family holiday for two weeks in lanzarote and have been told today that im not allowed to take my 150mg daily does with me because the doctor thinks i should go to detox first are they allowed to do this ## Your doctor isn't obligated to treat you or provide you with any medications, whatsoever, so yes, they certainly can. The only time any doctor is obligated to treat you is if you're in life threatening danger. Providing you with a medication such as this is not something they have to do. Learn more Methadone details here. And, if they did provide you with enough doses for a 2 week travel period, he could be held responsible if something untoward were to happen. I'm sorry, I realize it creates complications for you, but that's just the way it works. How...

Methadone and Norco

I have been clean from methadone for 3 weeks now, after 10 days I started feeling a lot better. Withdrawals were not too bad, just weak and no energy. I was on them for 3 years and tapered down to 4mg before I completely quit. I feel pretty good id say. But was wondering if i were to take my norco prescription, will i get sick all over again? How long should I wait? Or if i take a methadone will i get sick? ## If you start taking Norco they will probably not make you sick until you stop taking them. Why are you taking the Norco if you are feeling pretty good. The one thing you will find is that your tolerance will increase much faster then when you were taking methadone along with the feeling that you have to have them just to get your day started. Even if you stop taking a opiate and w...

Are Doctors beginning to NOT prescribe methadone anymore for chronic pain?

I am 56 years old and am disabled due to a work-related injury therefore I am rich by no means! I have heard that they are considering taking methadone off the market due to too many overdose issues, plus people on it, get a prescription filled and sell it for profit making it even harder for folks like me who take my meds honestly as prescribed. If Methadone is removed from the market, what am I supposed to do? I already know I can not go off this stuff cold turkey and am scared. Does anyone know any doctors in the Warner Robins-Macon, GA area that prescribe Methadone ILLEGITIMATELY? I am not looking to sell meds, I just want to be sure I will not be in pain. I've been on Methadone since November 2008 and so far it works fine for me. I just neeed a backup plan just in case that doe...
