I was talking with my pain doc about
increasing my methadone and when he looked up my dose he told me 90mg's was the max that can be given.. I do know that for maintenance it's alot more.. Any info appreciated.. The reason for the increase is that my AVN in shoulder and right knee is in stage 3 and need surgery..
AVASCULAR-NECROSIS (AVN) in 6 joints. HIPS,KNEE'S and SHOULDERS.
