Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Can long-term methadone use cause or increase the risk of colon cancer?
I had a two-level spinal fusion at L4-S1 in 2000 after being injuried at work in Sept. 24, 1997. I lost everything after...the unjury, ability to do my job, my wife and family (couldn't take the strain) my home, my sense of self and purpose, direction and belonging...credit rating and ability to pay my bills.
After a long period of waiting to settle my workmens' comp. case, I returned home, from the Bat Area back to Arizona to take of my mother with a yet un dianosed case of moderate dementia.
Then, in 2011 I had a 2nd surgery to relieve spinal stenosis btwn. L2-L4, just above the fusion site.
I've been taking methadone since early 2004, a little over ten years, now. I've had high blood pressure since my injury.
Now, I waiting to be scheduled for a colonoscopy, with my father having had polyps and the way I've been feeling..drained, tired all the time, and stomach pains ( in addition to my chronic low back pain), I...
find myself wondering if there is any relationtionship between the methadone and other meds and cancer?

Puritus just started after 7 years of being on suboxone. Just switched to generic subutex, three weeks ago. Pruritus just started 1 week ago, on the back of my thighs and buttocks.

- Suboxone treatment may have caused my trichotillomania
It's a long story of how I became addicted to opiates after 15+ years of chronic pain, but I decided to give up pain killers and try suboxone/subutex treatment. Shortly thereafter, I began pulling hair. First from my head, then when the bald spots became too obvious I started pulling from all over. It seemed to be triggered by stress or anxiety but not always. I did not make an association until recently, when I finally stopped the suboxone. It was two weeks of miserable withdrawal, much worse than from pain killers themselves, but I am finally out of the haze I'd be in all of that time, and I have no urge to pull hair whatsoever. I don't know how often the association of suboxone use and trichotillomania has been examined, but I wanted to share my experience in case anyone else is in a similar situation. Also, if you are considering starting suboxone treatment, don't. Withdrawal from opiates will lead to a few pretty rough days, but that's nothing compared to what you'll go through during suboxone withdrawal.
- Unexplained death of a young, healthy man
My 35 year old husband died after taking Nucynta ER for 14 days. Although he had no history of seizures the drug caused him to have multiple seizures one night. This resulted in cardiac arrest and an untimely death of a strong, healthy, hard working man. Please know all of the possible side affects of any drug before you take anything and make sure you tell someone if you are experiencing any difficulties at all.
- Thinking about methadone maintenance? don't do it (3 responses)
I'm on Methadone Maintenance Therapy (MMT) after failing to stay off of chronic and illicit use of heroin, dilaudid, and methamphetamines. I tried going clean using the subutex/ suboxone method twice and wasn't able to stop using the other drugs.
With MMT I am clean of the illicit drugs, but I feel horrible all the time. I've been on it 2 years now and have been adjusting my dose up and down and find at 70mgs I have the least side effects. The side effects I have all the time are weight gain (even though I have little to no appetite), lack of motivation, very irregular menstrual cycle, and increased anxiety. Sometimes I have horrendous headaches, severe sweating, dehydration, constipation, and the worst depression I have ever had.
If you are thinking about going on MMT, one important fact that the clinic does not tell you is how long it takes to get off of it. I'm just starting my detox now and they can only take me down 1mg a week til I'm at 35, then depending on how I'm doing I can stop and go on suboxone for withdrawals IF I'm doing ok. Do the math, that's 35 weeks until I can get to a point where I might be able to stop taking it! I really wish someone would have explained that to me when I signed up, because now I'm still a slave to drugs-just a different one at a clinic.
