Commentary on popular culture and society, from a mostly psychological perspective Sunday, June 18, Walking on Eggshells: Dealing with the Borderline in Your Life Many times, patients or others ask me for a recommendation for a book or help for dealing with an angry, destructive person who is ruining their emotional health. My recomendation for a self-help book when coping with the aftermath of the borderline personality is Stop Walking on Eggshells:
Methadone should only be prescribed for pain by experienced clinicians! Indubitably, the most difficult opioid conversion challenge to prescribers and pharmacists is methadone.

Methadone therefore stays in the body for several days after discontinuation. In essence, after calculating a conversion to morphine or equivalentone cannot simply stop the methadone and substitute with the equivalent dose because both drugs will remain in the body. Careful slow titration and transition to or from methadone is vital.
Furthermore, significant pharmacokinetic intrapatient variability exists as a result of polymorphism, hence the huge half-life variationand up to hours.
This of course precipitates yet another issue, significant risk for drug interactions! It Takes a Team L to R: Steve Passik; Nurse, Ms. Cindy Lord; Pharmacist, Dr. Jeffrey Fudin; Physician, Dr. Howard Smith If the clinician can get past all these barriers, we are often left with the daunting task of converting other opioids to an equivalent dose of methadone.
Graphing these schematics spurred my initiative to develop a formula that would smooth out the methadone conversion curve.
September 24, at 1: This past Friday, one of my front teeth just fell out of my mouth. My other teeth are literally crumbing to pieces.
I did find scientific studies on the net that show that methadone as a direct cause of tooth decay, but very little on oxycodone. I have always been extremely dedicated to taking care of my teeth my entire life and literally day before yesterday one of my other front teeth just fell out of my mouth.
I just about started to fricking cry. I met with my pain management doctor last Thursday and, of course he denied any severe adverse effect from the opioids as a cause of tooth decay with the exception of dry mouth.
But even dry mouth is not normal, it is a direct result from having to ingest opioids. I definitely do not want to have to wear dentures at such a young age.
This past Friday, my pm doctor called and sent me a small check to help me pay for my teeth problem as I guess in hindsight he may have felt a tiny twinge of guilt. I need a miracle.One mom bravely tells her story of intrusive thoughts experienced after the birth of her daughter.

i have to disagree about opioids causing tooth decay. I’ve been taking 60 mg of methadone and about 75 mg of oxycodone everyday for about 12 years now, plus 4 other drugs and lately my teeth have just started falling out.
