How long have you been taking methadone?
I have been taking it for about 4 weeks now, but obviosly lower mg's. I'm not sure about the med. Itake dillaudid as well and I think it might be the dilladid in between because if I dont take it I find my foot will start to have the crps symptoms again. I keep going up on the methadone every 5 days. I take 20 mg 2x per day and 10mg 1x. I will continue the .5 increase but I just wanted to know at what point did you feel as though the methadone was working by itself and not the breakthru meds?
Pamela (no) Neckpain,
Wow, that is a lot of methadone!!! I thought 120mg daily was a high dose. But I am so glad you have found something that helps, isn't it great??? To answer your question: You should be good on your dose for at least a year or more. Methadone is good about that, you will be good.
