...Good Morning Bunny!
I'm sorry to hear of the shortage....and from what I'm reading I don't think it is a shortage at all....but that the Pharmacy's are just refusing to order it. I have read more than one report on this.
Methadone?....I have heard good things about it....however, I also hear that it may be difficult to get on...and can be extremely hard to get off of if needed. Many here seem to think it is a last resort of med's to try...before considering the pump.
If your hubby has tried all other med's and they are no longer effective...then if it were me, I may consider it. However this is something he should visit with his PM about.
I will ask my pharmacist about the so called shortage...maybe she can shed some light on it. Also I'm wondering if the lower dosage is hard to get filled too?
I wish your hubby well....and thank you for the update....please continue to keep us informed if you may.

...I think the last two replies here are good for a bump!
Have a great day!
