What does I do when I miss methadone clinic?

Swim missed his weekend doses. He hates when this happens as there is nothing he can do to help swimself unless he finds done on the street. Swim is sitting next to 2 80 oxycottons, and swim keeps thinking about railing them before dumping em off to his junky swimmers. Swim just knows that it'll be a waste if he does though ugggh. What do other swimmers do on the days they miss the clinic? Just ride it out like a bitch until the next day or go find some dope even though it prob wont help.

Re: What does swim do when swim misses 'done clinic?

Made it without using the oxys though? Good work!

SWIM bought some kratom so he could miss the odd day or two off the clinic without getting sick and using something that would cause a dirty sample. Loperamide can also help to ease WD's too if taken in large doses, and I gather it will not cause a dirty sample.

Re: What does swim do when swim misses methadone clinic?

It really depends on how bad your withdrawals are and what you really want to do about it. Toughing it out would be the best option in Swims opinion.

Swim thinks if you can ride them out without using other Opiates than by all means do that. And maybe when you do finally get your dose of Methadone it will be a little more euphoric and satisfying than usual.

But if the withdrawals get to the point of driving you insane and you absoltley can't handle it anymore than if you HAVE to take some OC than do that. But if you were going that route using a smaller kind of Opiate(Codeine, etc.) to get you through that day would be more wise. In North America you can get T1's at any local pharmacy and just do a cold-water extraction on them.

Or maybe just smoke some Marijuana for that day to help you a little, instead of resorting to that old nasty habit.

If you really want to quit Opiates than you shouldn't go back to them even if you have to suffer for one day. It just wouldn't be wise.

I would just wait it out and avoid giving yourself your DOC.

Because the methadone is in your system you might not get as high from these things as you are expecting or they might not even work and it'll be a waste.

Swim has missed his dose before and just waited it out until the next day when Swim finally got his dose. It was more satisfying than usual as well.

Plus, one day isn't really too bad and isn't going to kill you.

And besides, the full effects of the withdrawals aren't even suposed to hit you until after three full days without the Methadone or so.

But it is your decision and your life.

I hope all goes well!

Re: What does swim do when swim misses methadone clinic?

Having methadone on hand in case of an emergency would be awesome & the best case scenario, of course! I've heard of people with take home doses putting aside a bit of every take home dose (like, 10mg or so) to build such a stockpile.

Having an "emergency stash" of clonidine and a sedating anti-histamine such as diphenhydramine (Benedryl in the States) or promethazine (Phenergan in the States) would be next best; with the combination of the two a patient really shouldn't have any trouble riding out a day or two of missing the clinic. It wouldn't be too bad even if the patient only had access to clonidine. I've been told gabapentin (Neurontin) or pregabalin (Lyrica) can be helpful as well. The point of using these medications to get through it is so that there isn't an "official" relapse that would show up on the random, mandatory drug screens the clinics require. Obviously if someone doesn't care about that, opioids (up to and including heroin) & maybe benzos could be used; however many addicts have a problem keeping chemicals like that on hand "in case of emergency"!

My friend is very lucky, she can go many hours past her usual dosing time & still feel comfortable. In fact, she gets take home doses a few days a week and says she often finds herself not remembering to dose until 2pm or 3pm (when she normally doses around 8am); a few weeks ago she realized around 6pm that she still hadn't taken her dose, so decided to attempt to skip it to see what happened/if she could handle it. I was told she was actually just fine and took her next day's dose at 9am; skipping the dose had no ill effect on her at all & she didn't require any comfort meds to do it, either. While it is obviously not recommended to skip doses, she tells me she feels a lot better/stronger for having done so, since she now knows for certain that she could handle missing the clinic for at least a day if she had to (due to a snowstorm or some other unforeseen catastrophe).

So, my girlfriend tells me that if she missed the clinic these days, she wouldn't do anything else to "make up" for it, though she has 'scripts for gabapentin & clonidine stockpiled, just in case she ends up needing some help/she has to miss more than one day.

Re: What does swim do when swim misses methadone clinic?

^^ Not to go too far OT but I've heard of some people that get take homes and will go 48 hours between doses so they can take a double and get a buzz. Since the methadone has been built up in thier system for so long, they can go two days without getting sick. So they take a double dose one day and the next day nothing and the day after that, another double, etc. But that's only possible if you've been on long enough to get take homes.

Just a suggestion for anyone trying to get a little buzz.

Also, if I were on methadone, what I would do is like what Kaily said and stash 10 mg or so from each take home and save it. If one was on like 80 mg, they probably wouldn't notice if they only took 70 and if they did that for a couple of weeks, they'd either have a backup emergency supply or enough to get a good high.

Re: What does swim do when swim misses methadone clinic?

SWIM is on weekly take-outs (just got stepped up to getting 2 weeks at a time). Anyways, SWIM usually ends up taking one extra during that time so he is usually without methadone the day before he goes to the clinic to pick up his weekly's. It usually isn't too bad for SWIM. He just gets the cold/hot flashes every half hour or so. His skin gets quite sensitive and that's about it. This week I had to go two days without (72+ hours since the last dose). It wasn't too bad, though SWIM would MUCH rather not do that.

Anyways, when SWIM knows he is going to go without he just stays home, watches movies and takes a fair amount of diphenhydramine (benadryl) and Remeron at night to fall asleep.

Also, SWIM has had VERY good luck with cimetidine (Tagamet). If you don't know what cimetidine is, DEFINITELY search for it. It really helps SWIM as far as getting his doses to last longer.

AW: What does swim do when swim misses methadone clinic?

As the Wolf now is in his tenth year of MMT he gets weekly take-home doses and does these in triple doses each third day (monday's dose he takes in the pharmacy when fetching his six others).
this now works fine for the last five years and gives the Wolf a decent buzz twice a week.
Some times he had (due to his greediness) to sit out three instead of two days and can easily make it , mostly with a little help from Ms Mary-Jane. The use of benzos is strictly forbidden in his regimen, so he just doesn't take suchlike.

Doing nothing and keeping cool seems to be the easiest way to make time go by if one has missed the clinic for one day.

Re: What does swim do when swim misses methadone clinic?

This one guy once said that Doxlyamine (Unisom Hard Tablets) helps much better than Diphenhydramine, clinical studies have shown it can be more sedating than phenobarbital.
Also much less dry mouth. Oh, and Cimetidine is amazing!
