In the United States today, there is a pervasive tendency to treat children as adults, and adults as children. The options of children are thus steadily expanded, while those of adults are progressively constricted. The result is unruly children and childish adults. ~Thomas Szasz
Stray is right. Methadone is a funny medication. It does take some time, often a couple of weeks before things settle down, as far as being sleepy or feeling out of it goes away, but once it does, the medication handles both neuropathic and mechanical pain very well. That is one of the reasons that so many truly like it as far as pain relief goes, but like all medications, it takes some time to get past the initial side effects before you can truly appreciate the pain relief it gives once the dosage is correct and your body becomes acclimated to it.
Hang in there
