I am going to be starting methadone in the next month or so I am terrified. I am on oxycontin and oxy ir for break thru. I have tried everthing over the years but that don't help the pain long enough. It peaks within an hour of taking it than it starts to wear off. My doctor has been trying for years to get me on methadone but I kept saying no.
I finally have decided to start it just waiting for approval from my drug plan here. I have read good and bad things with it esp coming off it. My pain specialist said he feels I won't need to worry about that.
Painkiller I read your post and seem to help, some scary parts but that par for the course when starting it.
