I have been in chronic pain managment for about 4 1/2 yrs. My doctor started me on Dolophine(R)(methadone HCL) 10mg tablets for chronic neck pain. I was also diagnosed with GAD (general anxiety disorder) and was started on Klonopin(R) (clonazepam USP) 1mg tablets for anxiety.
I take 3 tablets twice a day of methadone for the pain, and 1 tablet three times daily for anxiety. They work great for me. I have been on the same initial doses of the same two meds for about 4yrs. now!
The fact that I have never had to increase my dose is amazing to me. The methadone works just as good if not better somedays (??). I read some info that said that methadone effects your NMDA-receptors, and these receptors play a large role in drug tolerance.
Another benefit that I have learned is how cheap methadone is, compared to say a equal-day supply of Demerol(R). A month supply (180 tablets) of 10mg Methadone is $18.00 compared to $650.00 for a month's supply for Duragesic(R), or $100.00 of Demerol(R), not to mention the effectiveness and half-life comparisons.
Take this information for what it is and use it if you can, I hope that I helped some..
State lawmakers are considering a crackdown on
people who use or sell products designed to help avoid positive drug tests that can cost drug users jobs or put them behind bars. A House judiciary committee voted 13-0 Thursday for a measure that would make it a Class 4 felony to use, sell, or make products that can provide false urine samples. Violators would also be fined $1,000, well said by the last findrxonline bill being debated at this time. The bill now heads to the full House. Supporters say some companies are profiting by blatantly helping people fix drug tests under the guise that the tests are unfair and give unpredictable results.
