Dear Nikna,
The horrible thing about Nubaine, is thart it elimates all the stored up opiates in a persons body, and this is particularly bad for Methadone patients because Meth has a long after life. You go into immediate and total withdrawl (withdrawal) because it takes out all the stored up methadone in your system. Normally, meth slowly leeches out of your system over the course of several days.
  
Ten minutes after I got the Nubain shot I went into the worst withdrawl (withdrawal) of my life (and I once kicked 135 mgs of meth and a bad Xanax habit in jail!)  Nothing can compare to what you go through.  My arms were cramping so bad that I had no control over them.  
Fortunatly, they figured out what went wrong pretty quickly and called an ambulance.

On the way to the hospital, the techs shot me up 4 times with morphine (this is what the Poison control manual says to do).  In the ER they shot me up 4 more times!  This didn't come close to replacing the Methadone that was taken out of my system, but felt a little better..When they discharged me 10 hours later, I still felt like ****.  It was the worst physical experience of my life.  Absolutly horiffic!

Nubain has a narcotic blocker in it that can precipitate wds just  as suoxone can...if u told them u were on methadone and it wa given anyway...then i would look into it as the mixture probably threw u into wds...as long as u told them...,,I am not saying u did not but many do not tell health care professionals about the drugs they r on

There is no telling if this contributed to the loss of ur baby..but my heart and prayers go out to u

I think nubain is the same as narcan or does the same thing. I also have a couple horror stoies about being given narcan while on methadone and going through pure hell. The worst part of it was I was given this drug while I was fully awake(which is against guidlines), and lied to about it. I think I still have PTSD from having this happen to me a few times. I tried to sue but a lawer said I didn't have enough damages but your story is tragic and you should sue. all the best

I was accidentally given nubain when I was pregnant with my son 5 years ago and I almost immediately went into the worst withdrawals I've ever experienced. I honestly thought I was going to die and at one point I wanted to. I was actually begging God to take me. The doctors and nurses had no idea what to do to make it stop. They planned on giving me demoral through an iv but I was convulsing so bad they couldn't get the iv in. About 10 minutes into it my husband stated that if methadone stopped withdrawals then why wouldn't it stop these withdrawals. At that point the doctors were desperate and sent down to the pharmacy for some methadone. They said it would be about an hour before it got up to the ob floor. My husband took off running to the car and got my take home box and brought me a dose. Within 5 minutes of taking the methadone the symptoms went away. Within 10 minutes I was sitting up in the bed eating a sandwich like nothing had happened. It was the worst experience I have ever had and I wouldn't even have wished that pain on Osama Bin Laden. With-in 24 hours my son was born 5 weeks premature and suffered bad withdrawal symptoms that I believe he wouldn't have had had it not been for the nubain/methadone incident. I've watched several babies get born on methadone and have minimal or no withdrawals given that they are on breast milk. My son was miserable with them and stayed in the nicu for over a week. I'm quite certain that the nubain/methadone mix-up was the cause for all of this.
