Can You Take Methadone And Sudafed
Yes: Sudafed and Methadone should be O.K. To take together, even though one is a mild upper and the other is a downer. Sudafed is a mild stimulant that acts as a decongestant and vasoconstrictor of blood vessels. Methadone works primarily by binding to opiate receptors in the brain. This reply is based on the assumption that sudafed is not transformed into an illicit drug by some buyers. ...Read more
It may cause false +: Test for amphetamine if you are being drug tested on a regular basis. Unfortunately, pretty much every available decongestant has a similar molecular structure to amphetamine. Definitive tests will show that it is not a true positive. If the stuffy nose is chronic it is probably allergic in nature, and nasal steroids, which are now OTC, will help more. Stop or cut down smoking if you smoke. ...Read more
What would be symptoms ofa bad reaction to methadone or interaction of it with cipro (ciprofloxacin) or cymbalta or sudafed?
Methadone interactio: Cipro (ciprofloxacin) and Methadone together cause problems with cardiac arrhythmias prolonging what's called the qt interval. If you're on this combination then monitoring with an ekg would be a good idea. Cipro (ciprofloxacin) can increase Cymbalta levels. If you are already having side effects from the cymbalta, these will increase. Cymbalta and Methadone together can very rarely cause serotonin syndrome. I would recommend the google that so you know what the symptoms are. There's not enough space here to allow me to write those all out. Best wishes. ...Read more

Maybe: I try to avoid recommending sudafed to people who have high blood pressure. People with diabetes also would be better to avoid it. But if it is once in a while and taking safer measures such as nasal saline, nasal steroid fail to relief nasal congestion then I would say it is not a big issue to take a few of them. ...Read more

Yes: The loperamide is not absorbed. It works only in the gut. Therefore it won't have additive opiod effect elsewhere. ...Read more

It can.: There is some evidence to suggest that especially for men, long term Methadone can decrease bone density (which could put you at risk for fractures). The mechanism probably involves lowered testosterone levels in people taking methadone. So in addition to the yearly ekg for people on methadone, i'd also discuss calcium and vitamin d supplementation with your doc. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Is it safe to take Pepcid (famotidine) AC or its generic version while on 140mg of methadone per day?

You can use it for treatment of indigestion and is ok to use with methadone, but if your stomach continues to bother you be sure to see your primary care physician. ...Read more

I take clonazepam and I am prescribed methadone. How do I get a script for the clonazepam? I've been taking 2mg a day for 8yrs.
From one's doctor: Clonazepam is a controlled substance (the important thing is the reasons why it is a controlled substance). A prescription can be obtained by seeing a doctor at the doctor's office. Hopefully, this is how a person has been getting the controlled substance over the past 8 years. The patient and doctor should have an ongoing care relationship. ...Read more
