Is 45mg/day of methadone and 60mg/day of cymbalta (duloxetine) safe to take together?

Is 45mg/day of methadone and 60mg/day of cymbalta (duloxetine) safe to take together?

Maybe: Can't answer for you specifically or for exact doses since that would involve doing an individual assessment. However they should be ok together. There is one possible interaction. Methadone may reduce the metabolism of Cymbalta (duloxetine) (meaning that for the same dose your blood levels may be higher than they would ordinarily be). This may mean a dose adjustment. ...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

Prescribed methadone for pain every 8 hours, is it required to take every 8 hours If I would be asleep or needs to be 3x day to work?

Once a day can work: Methadone has a very long half life and is commonly given as a once a day dose. I'm a bit surprised you're taking methadone, but also mentioned Percocet as current medication. Both drugs are strong narcotics and not frequently prescribed together except in difficult pain management cases. I wonder if you have developed an addiction to narcotics.

How can I ween off methadone safely? The clinic gave me 30mg then 25mg, what mg should I take tomorrow on day 3 at the clinic?? I want to get off ASAP

Talk to your doctor: Weaning off of Methadone is a very individual experience. You could try 20mg. If you experience any difficulty, you should ask to talk to the clinic doctor. Some people are able to get off Methadone with little or no problem. Some people require a slower taper. I commend you for wanting to get off of Methadone. Typically a taper down by 5mg per week is best. Keep going to your meetings. Peace! ...Read more

What should I do if I have a heroin problem and I heard that I can take methadone to stop. What are the benefits to this. Will I be addicted to methadone then too?

What should I do if I have a heroin problem and I heard that I can take methadone to stop. What are the benefits to this. Will I be addicted to methadone then too?

Having worked in: Both Methadone maintenance clinics and having treated narcotics addicts with suboxone, I really see no benefit to methadone. Methadone is a narcotic just like a street drug. It is ultimately more expensive in many cases than Suboxone treatment. It is by no means as convenient, and there is a tendency to continually escalate the dose. With Suboxone dosage escalation rarely if ever occurs. Suboxone is much more well-tolerated and you don't have to deal with pick ups at a clinic where you are continually exposed to other narcotic addicts. If you were thinking about going on methadone, please consider the option of suboxone. ...Read more
