Can you take amoxicillin and methadone!?

Can you take amoxicillin and methadone!?

Yes: The two medications should not cause any significant interactions. Methadone, when misused, however, can be fatal so make sure you are taking it as prescribes by a doctor experienced in prescribing it. It is a different animal than other opiates; it won't get you high but it can get you dead pretty quickly if misused. Read more

What to do if I am taking methadone I want to stop its been 2 years 105 ml a day. Is ther anything I can take for withdrawal s?

TAPER THE METHADONE: If you stop cold turkey, you are going to feel like you have been hit by a truck for many weeks and even months. You will also very likely relapse to your drug of choice again after feeling that withdrawal day after day. The best way is to taper, ideally over at least a 90 day period. There are medications like clonidine that your doctor can prescribe, and you can treat the pain/diarrhea/nausea. Read more

Was wanting to know the average time frame that it takes for amoxicillin to take effect. I have been taking three days but pain still severe.

Was wanting to know the average time frame that it takes for amoxicillin to take effect. I have been taking three days but pain still severe.

Chemically quick: The drug reaches therapeutic levels in hours, and is excreted within a day. However, it may take much longer to fully treat a problem (and thus reduce pain) For ear infection, a day or two. For Dental infections, 3-5 days. For abdominal pain, up to a week. Too many variables to be very scientific I'm afraid. Read more

How long after taking methadone will I be able to take oxys?

Prescribed??: If you are a pain patient being prescribed methadone, your prescribing doctor and/or dispensing pharmacist are the ones you should be asking. It depends on the dose of the methadone, the dose of oxycodone and whether a long-acting or short-acting form of oxycodone, also on your tolerance. If not prescribed, you SHOULDN'T be taking either of them, and you should get help for your drug issues. Read more

How much time do I need to wait to take Suboxone after taking methadone?

That depends on how: Long you were on Methadone and on what dose. Suboxone (buprenorphine) will precipitate withdrawal in people who are dependent on other opioid drugs. Methadone is very long-acting, and precipitated withdrawal can occur even days after your last dose if you were on Methadone long-term. Tapering Methadone down to 30 mg or less, and waiting 2-3 days (until withdrawal is present) is safest way. Read more

Would taking ACE diet med affect the methadone I take? In any way at all? Thanks for the help!

Would taking ACE diet med affect the methadone I take? In any way at all? Thanks for the help!

Not that I know of: Ace is a supplement containing chromium, a few vitamins and caffeine, and as far as I can tell, wouldn't have any interactions with methadone. Despite all of the testimonials etc. Online, there is little or no scientific evidence that it works. Weight loss is a matter of eating a lot less and exercising a lot more, and that works better than any supplement. Good luck on your efforts. Read more
