    The Methadone Maintenence Controversy

    in Self Help

    Join us for a lively discussion with Ray Chlebicki, the former national sales manager for Roxand Labs, one of the three largest manufacturers of methadone.  Methadone, originally a drug developed by the Germans during the Second World War as a synthetic opiate pain reliever, has been used in this country both as a pain reliever and as a substitution therapy for heroin addiction.  Many have found successful recovery and others vehemently disagree with its use for this purpose.  Ray will offer us some history, some facts and debunk some myths.

    The drugging of our Miltary with Stan White

    in Politics

    BIO: Stan White

    Stan White is a retired high school principal. He is the father of Marine Corporal Andrew White, who was a healthy 23-year-old, gung-ho Marine returning from a nine-month tour in Iraq, who, like so many of his brothers in arms, suffered from the seemingly normal stresses of war—insomnia, nightmares and restlessness. The young corporal turned to the military’s mental health system for help. Within a few short months, White became unrecognizable to his family. Eleven months after beginning his first cocktail of mind-altering drugs, he died in his sleep from what the medical examiner ruled an “accidental overdose of medication.” Since taking his first multi-drug cocktail to the date of his death, White had been prescribed no less than nineteen different drugs with many at ever-increasing dosages, including antidepressants, antipsychotics, anti-anxiety, pain killers and antibiotics. The prescribed drugs Methadone, Oxycodone, Paxil and Seroquel were found in his system at the time of death. Stan and his wife, Shirley, blame the “lethal cocktail” of psychiatric drugs for the death of their son. “We don’t think they should be given to troops in the field,” Stan White said. “It’s worth asking whether they should be given to anybody anytime, civilian or military.” The Whites are advocating more alternatives for soldiers and have testified before the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

    Pharmacy Podcast Episode 74 Pills, Thrills, and Methadone Spills by Mr. Dispenser

    in Books

    Pills, Thrills and Methadone Spills


    I have a dream. It’s not quite as powerful as Mr King’s but it’s important to me. I want to write a book about life in pharmacy. There is too much doom and gloom surrounding pharmacy and I want it to make people laugh.

    A similar book was published recently. I have not read it but I believe with the help of social media, we could create something special. I need your help.

    I want people to send in anecdotes and jokes about pharmacy. I would love to hear from community pharmacists, pre-regs, technicians, dispensers and counter staff. Also hospital, primary care, prison, academics, pharmacy journalists, students, GPs and even GP receptionists. I will add in some of my blogs too. I have no idea how I will publish it but that will be part of the adventure.

    You can reply to this page, via email mrdispenser@hotmail.co.uk, or Twitter @mrdispenser

    I look forward to hearing from you and will keep you updated!

    Combating Opiate Dependence With Suboxone Therapy

    in Health

    Suzanne Marcus Fletcher discusses with John M. Greene M.D. of Summit Estate Recovery Center why Suboxone is now considered the gold standard treatment for opioid dependence rather than older medications such as methadone, and much more about Suboxone and its therapeutic use.
    John M. Greene, M.D. is the Medical Director at Summit Estate Recovery Center, and is certified through the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.  Dr. Greene partners with Summit Estate Recovery Center Staff and Clients by practicing a collaborative approach to total wellness. When a new client enters treatment at Summit Estate Recovery Center, Dr. Greene’s first priority is to ensure the client is able to detoxify safely and comfortably. This goal is achieved with a detoxification protocol that is tailored to each individual, and is targeted to address each client’s complex medical history and substance use patterns.
    Join us for the conversation on Suboxone on Monday September 23rd at Noon.
