Methadone and klonopin?
My doc prescribed me methadone and klonopin recently for pain. I'm also on many other drugs for a neurological condition. I took my first methadone last night at 8:00 pm. It was 5 mgs. I felt fine. At midnight I took the Klonopin 1 mg and within 20 minutes started feeling nauseus. So I went to bed at 12:30. Didn't wake up until 11:00 this morning when I am normally up by 7:00. It is now 3:40 and I am still queasy....How long should this last??? I haven't taken a single pill since the klonipin because I have been so sick...do these medications react badly together?? I have a call in to my doctor...I am just curious to see if it's the methadone or the klonopin or the combination of the two. Thanks for your help.

4 hours apart seems too close. And if you ever loose insurance, and can;t get the meds you'll be worse. If you can get off the stuff do so, but if it's the only way you can deal with it, I feel ya! I'm a chronic back pain person and take a few pain killer's daily. The body charlie horses and the headaches are unreal. I could take more, and I have taken the best pain meds a doc can offer, but then your not aware of anything and sleep all the time,not to mention getting sick from it and sick from without it! I fight it every day , so try to deal with some pain and quit going for the NO PAIN AT ALL!!

Hi,

I have never heard of klonopin being prescribed for pain. I have been on klonapin for many years, anxiety disorder. The
klonapin is no doubt makingyou sleepy,exsp. if you are taking itat midnight? Did your doctor prescribe it to be taken at midnight? That's unusual. Klonapin is a seditive in the same category, of : valium, xanax, etc. Klonapin has a longer
life which means you do not have to take it as often as you do the others I mentioned.

I don't know anything about methadone. What is it?

Have a great day!

They have my mother in law on methadone and trammadol along with ativan (benzodiazapine same class as klonipin). She is also on a muscle relaxer along with several other medications. She has no problems with them, but she has been on them for a long time and they did not start her on them at the same time. It is probably the combination of the two being started at the same time. You mignt need to get used to the methadone first since it's for pain which has to be pretty bad for them to prescribe methadone. Then after you adjust to it, try the klonipin.

If you are taking the methadone every twelve hours, you might be able to take the klonipin twelve hours later and see how that works for you. But usually when they prescribe methadone for pain it is every six to eight hours. In that case it might help to wait a few weeks before taking the klonipin.

Sorry for adding stuff. You could also try taking them eight hours apart to see if that helps.

It won't last long. I have a spine injury and have been dealing with pain issues for years. I've been on methadone and klonopin along with every other pain med around. Methadone use to be kind of a last drug to try for pain but there are far better pain medications with far less problems on the market today.
Methadone has been proven to not be very effective for pain considering all problems taking it causes. I think it is used to maintain heroin addicts and help people kick pain medications than it is used for pain management.

5mg. is an extremely low dose of methadone to deal with pain and 1mg. of klonapin is what someone with restless leg syndrome would take. Now that, the klonipin, should make you sleepy but not the 5mg. of methadone. When I was on methadone I took up to 90mg a day for about a year and a half..

I would strongly suggest you talk to your doctor and ask him for something besides methadone. Once you get on it you will have a bad time getting off it. The withdrawls are worse than heroin. I know, I've been through both.

It took me almost a year to lower my dose of methadone to the point that I didn't have any physical effects from not taking it. It took about another year before I could sleep an entire night without waking up 10 times.

I now am in a pain management program and I take hydrocodone, oxycodone, Nuerontin and Soma for pain and nerve damage and I am doing about as good as I ever will. I was disabled in a car accident with a drunk driver.

Here are a few links that will help you but I really think the smart thing to do would be to talk with your doctor about something besides methadone. You will just have to keep going up and up on the dose for it to work until you get to 120mg. a day. Your life will become hell at that point. It's far worse than any pain I've had from my cervical spine injury and operations.
