Quote from rockingham:julie,
i have a few questions for you.
what kind of doctor is your doctor...family practice or ???
how did you come to visit this particular doctor? i was curious if he was specifically treating you for addiction or prescribing methadone for pain. ive gathered its for addiction but was not totally certain because ive been under the impression that it wasnt possible for doctors to treat addiction with methadone...only for pain.
you mentioned a appt on the 9th. i was wondering how long you were taking a certain dose before dropping to the next level???
one thing i wanted to tell you about in my treatment program. i take my dose at the same time every morning. at about 9am in the morning.
do you take a 10mg pill several times a day or take your dose at one time?
:) curious bout another methadone patient:)
sorry for the barrage...hehe :bouncing:
HI Yes, my dr. is a regular md. family practice.
He treats me for withdrawl only, not pain.
I have read on the internet that it is okay
now for regular md's to prescribe methadone
My best friend found this dr.
she made a few phone calls, and that is all it took.
I take my methadone
in doses in the morn. and afternoon;
so I am doing without in the evening.
I dont take my doses all at the same time;
do you think that is best?
My dr. said that maybe I should string out
my doses becuase I am used to taking so
many hydros throught the day..........
right now I am taking 5 a day.
I am positive that on thursday
he will drop me down to 4 a day.
With me knowing that is coming;
I think that I will start taking 4 a day starting tomorrow or the next day?
My husband keeps ahold of my bottle of pills
and gives them to me in the mornings.
by the way, he has been having me stay on the same
doses for 2 weeks at a time;
he tells me he is going to take this very slow............
i hope he is doing this right!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
