I am in total shock that I came across you and your posting on this website because I have been seeking help to get off of methadone for 4 years now and it is to the point that I am so addicted I have tried many times to go to different places different doctors and they all tell me that there is nothing that they can do for me. I am a man of Faith so I don't think that it was just by coincidence that I came acrossed your posting. I so desperately need to get my life back and yet I have been so unsuccessful many times doing so that it's extremely frustrating. Is there any way I could get some help you for real get off this get my family back and start a new life? I desperately and begging for any assistance from anybody thank you so much and God bless
I can't figure out how to post on the board, but you were wrong about Methadone and pregnancy. I had a healthy baby while on Methadone and the neonatal practitioners used tiny amounts of morphine to detox even though no Methadone showed up in her to screen. Was not allowed to breasfeed.
I have posted a question about pregnancy and addiction. However i came across your profile and am looking for some educated advice without judgment being passed. I was curious if you are a dr, a nurse, or just an extremely knowledgeable individual. Also i want to know if you can help me with some advice.
Just a quick note to say hi!
I am a subutex user and need advice. Whats the QUICKEST and most comfortable way to get off this junk? Been on it sjnce 2010
... And also. Super important. I read some of your info and understand the diff between dependence and addiction. Of course, started out w one, and after the tradegy, became addicted. I know myself, and I know I need to find something to keep the cravings of my addiction down. I want to be happy from life. The life I do not have now. My only source of happiness came from my little devils. I want happiness to come from healthy things. Is there something I can buy online or anywhere else that will help w the cravings after my w/d?? I saw w/d ease and recovery online, but it's expensive (I wld pay it if I had it) and I've heard mixed reviews. Thank u again in advance. You sound busy so I'm grateful for ANY advice
I'm trying to get clean by myself. Staying at a friends on her couch to move far far away from my dealer. I dealt w a tradegy the wrong way and well... Now I'm here. My friend does not know and I can't tell her. Too embarrassed. I don't have my own space and super scared.
I'm tapering not as slow as I should have. I have a two tramadols left and 1/4 blue. I bought the things needed for the Thomas recipe. But then found out that krondon (sp) or the other 'C' med u mentioned (is that a script?) for the heeby jeebies that are the worst. And I don't know how much potassium to take. Should I go to a head shop? Wld they have anything? I'm really broke so I hv to be extremely careful. I need out and I need to get back to me. It's been too long. Please and Thank you for any help.

I've been reading some of your posts , and I was wondering if you knew, do they test the meconium for tramadol or suboxone?
Cheers for your advice by the way its good having an opinion !
I told you I would give you an update. Today I had my first ultra sounds I had a regular one and a transvaginal. I thought I was 7 weeks 5 days but the baby measured 7 weeks 1 day. I'm proud to say that the baby looked healthy we got a heart beat and everything I'm so happy I had been worrying myself to death but I'm so happy its ok I feel better. I was due October 26th but in actually due October 30th. I'm so happy and my fiance and i have names picked out.
Thanks for your help. My prenatal care wouldn't let me get an US till 20 weeks so I'm just going to a diagnostic center and self paying :) Everythings working out
I am new to the site today and i just wanted to tell you that I have enjoyed reading your posts. You provide so much insight and respond so quickly. Dedicated people like you make sobriety so much easier. Thank you for all you do!
Hi I have a question for you. I went to my visit today for my pregnancy and they said my insurance doesn't cover obgyn visits. What should I do? They want 140 dollars just for the visit.
Thank you I'm going for an ultra sound on Tuesday. Hopefully they'll be able to see the baby and everything will be ok.
Thank you for your reply I'm feeling better. I haven't had a past I'm proud of but as soon as I went to the hospital and got my pregnancy confirmed I just wanted to do anything and everything for my baby. I am worried but in 2 days I've completely changed my whole life to better the baby.
I just signed up for this forum looking for a way to treat my callussed, almost alligator like knuckles and I stumbled upon the addiction section. I just wanted to thank you for taking the time to do what you do. This forum is a perfect place to find out what the heck is going on and how life can get better without feeling uncomfortable askin a friend or a doctor in person. Great job, keep up the great work you are doing saving lives.
Just a quick note to say hi! Hi I have another question do u think that it is safe to take Trazodone at bedtime to help me get some sleep?
I would love if there would be hope for a detox. I was married for 39 yrs. to an electrician - and 5 yrs. ago he had cancer and died (very unexpectedly). He had retired at 55 and died at 58. Due to a bad set of circumstances I only received his pension for 2 yrs. and could not hold on to the health insurance at almost 500.00 a month. I get SSD as a disabled widow and I have Medicare. I also get some annuity money but that is due to stop soon. I have saved whatever extra that I possibly could.
I would have to know if this would be affordable in some way (I do have good credit).
Also - of course - I am scared. There is nothing worse than methadone withdrawal and I wonder if I add that to the pain I am in if I will bear up and be able to make it - I really want to.
I have never been off of Methadone. I did get under 40 mg. a couple of times but I had pain and it went ^.
I have been told that I have been on methadone way too long to try detox, especially now that I am dealing with severe neck pain from 3 herniated discs and one lower problem where I have no disc at all. I also have other health issues. I contracted Hep C virus from blood transfusions in 1980, I have serious rheumatoid arthritis and thyroid disease. Considering - I am a vegetarian who eats well and walks 3 mi. a day no matter how much pain I have. So my blood work shows my due diligence. I do not drink or smoke.
I keep thinking that maybe someday there will be a way to detox for me - I am now living on Medicare and have to pay 200.00 a month for my methadone.
I cannot remember what Cindy suggested for dividing up the questions-- one of us even days, one of us odd days-- looks like you took yesterday, the 16th-- want to just divide them up in that way, i.e. even/odd? I'd recommend that we don't do it based on the day the question was posted, but instead just have us answer whatever is there on 'our day'-- otherwise people will get mad that their question was passed over. If I miss an odd day-- say I am too busy to get to it-- you are welcome to answer them all on your even day, and vice versa if you miss a day-- or, feel free to answer what you can, and leave the rest for me. Does that sound reasonable?
