While Methadone Maintenance Therapy is a legitimate medication for treating heroin addiction by reducing cravings and minimizing/eliminating heroin withdrawal symptoms, Methadone is not without its own list of potential side effects. Vitadone is a supplement that can be used to offset some of the commonly reported side effects associated with Methadone. Vitadone is a sister supplement to Nutridone.
How Does Vitadone Work?
Vitadone assists in reducing sugar cravings, sweats, fatigue, and irregularity with bowel movements. Just like Nutridone, Vitadone contains no iron. Thus, Vitadone is considered a safe product for someone who is diagnosed with Hepatitis C
Vitadone is an over the counter supplement, and can also be taken by those not in a medication assisted treatment (MAT) program. It can even be taken after Methadone treatment has ended as it can provide nutrition that the body may lack due to lack of good nutrition and/or better dietary guidelines. Vitadone possesses no side effects and is a supplement providing the body with enhanced nutrition in order to function at its peak capacity.
How was Vitadone developed?
Vitadone was developed after a study was completed on people that were participating at a Methadone treatment clinic. In this study, it was shown that Methadone users were markedly lower in folate, B-Carotene, Vitamin C and Vitamin E. While this could also be attributed to a poor diet, this was a common denominator that was found in those who used Methadone as a treatment for heroin and/or opiate addiction. Thus, Vitadone was developed to provide the missing nutrients to Methadone patients.
Vitadone Ingredients: Is it safe for me?
Vitadone contains vitamins A through E, folic acid, calcium, iodine, magnesium, zinc, selenium, copper, manganese, ginseng, ginkgo biloba, cinnamon powder, and coenzyme Q10, to name a few. There are similarities and differences in the ingredients in Vitadone as compared to Nutridone, but both do market that they can assist with side effects of Methadone. The ingredients that are contained in this are nutrients that are naturally occurring in our bodies or in foods that are deemed to be healthier foods for us as per the RDA food pyramid. In addition, cinnamon has been noted to particularly assist with hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating.
How can I obtain this, and how do I take it?
Just like Nutridone, you can purchase Vitadone at an online retailer such as Amazon. Both Vitadone and Nutridone are also available at select Methadone clinics for purchase.
Vitadone is taken three times per day, one pill after each meal. Some physicians may recommend taking 2 pills after each meal in cases of extreme constipation. Just like any other supplement, it is best to discuss with your treating physician prior to taking this as a precaution. In terms of cost, it may run you approximately $70 for a 3 month supply for both Vitadone and Nutridone.
I have some facts….so what do I do?
Research is the key to success in many things. Before taking any medication or supplements,, it is always best to do your due diligence and conduct your own research on what could be available to you. It is also best to discuss with your treating physician, review consumer testimonials, and anything available to you to ensure you are making the best decision for you, your health, and your recovery. The internet is a powerful tool with vast amounts of information that can assist you with moving in a direction best for you, along with the advice and guidance of your treating physician.
