Anyone take methadone for chronic pain??  Would like to resume taking it, i had the best results for long term pain control. After moving to another state i can't find a dr who will prescribe it. Currently taking oxycodone 10mg 4 times a day. I know that i will build a tolerance quickly just like I always do, but the docs out here obviously dont understand why methadone works so well for someone like me, what thoughts are out there regarding these medications??

Oh, Methadone is great for me. I've tried them all. I do have Fibromyalgia along
with my other health problems. I'm sorry the doctors don't know about it. Maybe
you will just have to move to California and we can be neighbors. I don't usually
come to the Fibro board but you can find me in the Chronic Pain and the Anxiety
and Depression Forums. (Or you can e-mail me)
It's hard to get people to understand Methadone.
We kind of have the same health problems, kytkat. The Fibromyalgia Board is
a great place to be but I wonder how you choose that one

Osteoarthritis all levels of spine right down to Coccyx,Spondilytis,Myofascial Pain
Fibromyalgia,Bulging Discs,Spinal Stenosis,Scoliosis,Osteopenia,Chronic Constipation
Carpel Tunel Syndrome, Attention Deficit Disorder,

Methadone for Pain, Xanax for Anxiety, and more, of course.

Methadone can be habit-forming and it doesn't look like something I would want to take!
