Since Lyme disease treatment is still in the closet I would google "Methadone for cancer" I did a quick google search and not only did I find a bunch of stuff on that but I pulled up new research were methadone was found not only to treat the pain and fatigue but it KILLED cancer cells and left healthy cells alone! It has been around for about
30 years and we are still learning about
this synthetic wounder drug. My grandfather has severe arthritis and has been taking M for 3 years now. That is how I was introduced to it to begin with. Before he started on the M he was completely bed ridden for months on end but just a couple days after he started taking it he was able to return to work. Methadone has been studied in patients for long term use (5 years or more) and has been shown to be safe for your body and liver. The only thing that is does not seem to help with Lyme is the brain fog.
Methadone kills cancer -
Methadone for Lyme Disease -
"I've been using methadone for severe chronic pain for a few months. For me it works better than any of the other opiates. It seems to have an effect on neuropathic pain that the other opiates do not have. The effects of it can be felt for up to 24 hours, but it's more effective to take it 3 to 4 times per day.
The only real side effect that I've had from it is constipation. It's irritating but it can be dealt with. I hope that you can find relief from the pain soon. I've lived with chronic pain for years and things have been immensely better since starting the methadone."
