Re: doctors who can prescribe methadone in florida

I live in largo florida(close to st petersburg) and have been going to a PM dr for the past 6 yrs or so and he was prescribing methadone 40mg twice daily until last week. He told me that he wasnt able to prescribe methadone anymore.....even though thru these boards i found out that he can prescribe methadone in the 5's and 10mg tablet....just not the 40 mg tablets... they were going to be strictly for the addiction clinics.

I guess my question to you is why are you on methadone and what dose? Is it a chronic pain problem or an addiction problem?
