in my urine he would not give me my meds. I have severe medical problems. The problem i found with this message is, he said i couldnt even have a patch on. Although i had planned on quitting after Christmas, he took the joy out of what i wanted to do. Now everyone is saying the only reason u r quitting is because of the Dr. I think he should have at least given me the opportunity to quit without all his threats. One of his favorite mottos is " i got the carrot and u r the rabbit." He is a great doc outside of this and is known all over the us and Europe. He has written 4 novels.Within 10 days of seeing this guy he dropped me 60mg per DAY on my methadone but did give me 3 -15mg of oxycodone a day, which i have been on for over a year anyway. I am feeling the effects of coming down on the meth. I have been on it for 12 years. This guy freaks me out. Is there anything i could take to diminish some nicotine in my urine without messing up my doses of the others. pretty stupid question huh? If anyone has any input it would be greatly appreciated.

I don't like doc's with mottos. This guy thinks he's all it and you are a nothing. He probably believes he has to beak your spirit and then you back together as his creation. I don't blame you for feeling freaked out. Anyone would. Just because he wrote 3 books doesn't mean he's a good doc.
But the big question is, why are you going to him, is it to quit tobacco? If it isn't, then what difference does it make if you smoke. IMO if he was worth anything he would know that if he's trying to get you off opiates he should leave your nicotine addiction alone. I honestly think the nicotine addiction is harder to break than the opiate addiction is. It is at least just as hard.
I honestly don't know what kind of an answer you're looking for here. I think you should see a different doc.
I'm sorry if I missed the point here. I'm having a lousy Dec 26th.

Wow - he dropped your Methadone by 60 mgs? At a time? How long ago was this? Are you still alive? I truly wonder. The smoking is a big problem, to be sure, but the withdrawals you must be in because of the drop in Methadone must be horrific! Time to find a new doctor I think. The smoking is an addiction and one that needs to be treated with respect. Having you go cold turkey, and with your methadone also - that's criminal in my mind. What books has he written? Because I'll be sure not to read them - I'd say time to look for a new Dr. Be well! ElizaJane
