I gues you could say that I am the resident Methadone Specialist....I have been taking it for many many years...it's the only thing, long acting, that works for me....I also take Oxycodone IR 30 mg. 5Xdaily....So? What do you want to know? I know that most people think of Methadone as something for heroin addicts to take while trying to get clean...that's true...but it is also a darn good pain reliever....I take 120 mg. a day..and have been on that dose for years. I have never had anything bad happen as far as side effects...only constipation..and that happens with almost all pain meds. There are so many things that I could tell you, but I'd rather you ask me a question...my email address is on my profile so email me any time you need to...I could write a book about Methadone....
Here is a link to a site all about Methadone for Chronic pain....I hope it helps....
Let me know what you think...
