I have taken 5 mg of methdone a day for 14 years for restless legs syndrome...2.5 mg in the a.m. and 2.5 at nite. I have moved to Austin and cannot find a Dr to prescribe this for me....really, 5mgs a day??? How much of an issue can that be? Same dose, never varied for 14 years. I am an athletic professional, not an abuse risk. Can anyone offer an intelligent Dr in the Austin Area that can understand that low dose Methadone is the best RLS treatment without side effects of the other meds and interfering with the rest of your life according to the journals.

I am Rod, I have been on the methadone clinic since Mar 16 1999 and at first it really was a hastle . I then started giving clean U/A's and was granted take home doses.First was 1 time take home, then it was 2time take homes,Now I only come to the clinic on wednesday and get 6 carries. But now,I have severe emphysema and getting in even that one time so very hard to do. I am hoping to find a doctor to prescribe me the methadone and I would or could get enough methadone to last me throughout the month. Anyone out there know any doctors in Puyallup Wa.?
Thanks a bunch,
Rodney

Yes, I have a problem with that as well. I live in Houston TX. I have chronic pain, and have two plates in my head, and my right eye socket is constructed of titanium mesh. The problem lies because I have head pain, and I have always been a migraine sufferer, and was prescribed MS Contin for pain. I was prescribed 2 X 100mg MS Contins a day. Shockingly enough after years of use NOT abuse I became physically addicted. I wanted to take care of the addiction because I don't like anything to dictate my life, but myself. I have now been taking Suboxone for over a year now, and have been in constant pain, and have been plagued with crippling migraines.
So, now I no longer take MS Contin, but I'm back at square one in just as much pain as ever. I have come to find out that Suboxone actually is known to trigger migraines in people who are prone to them. Also while I'm on Suboxone no other pain reliever will work including IB Proffen etc.
I would like to be on Methadone, but the only way I can seem to find to get it is through a Methadone Clinic. Are there Doctors that can prescribe Methadone other than SKID ROW STYLE CLINICS? I would love to have a Doctor that can take care of my issues on a 1 to 1 bases, and take advantage of the expensive insurance I have!
Thanks,
Thomas

I am a recovering cocaine addict/alcoholic. I also have a pinched nerve and severe sciatic pain. I found a new Dr. in the town that I've just moved to and threw everything out on the table about my past. Needless to say, this wonderful dr. has given me hydrocodone, then found out I have Hep C, so I was given oxycontin because of the tylenol content in the other meds. I asked the dr. to pull me off the oxycontin because I could feel myself getting addicted to it. I brought up the issue of Methadone, and my dr agreed to try it. She also admitted that I would be a bit of a guinea pig because she's not that familiar with it. We've helped each other, I've never failed a drug screen and at my current dose of 60mg a day, I'm pain free and have a life. That's just my advice, be honest. Tom Petty said it.....Even the Losers get lucky sometimes.
