Weird? : Some people express symptoms or prodromal characteristics early in life. Many, if not most, showed no symptoms. The change in behavior is often what leads to diagnosis and treatment.

Maybe.: Is your mom a Scientologist? Or, has she had a bad experience? Care varies by the caregiver. Broad statements are seldom true and often betray bias. Love your mother but trust your own "common sense".

It depends on you.: Methadone has a long half life. It's fat soluble and elimination factors can vary based on genetics, other medications taken, and body habitus, to name a few. The half-life measures the amount of time it takes to eliminate half the amount ingested. Methadone 1/2 life varies from 4 hrs to as high as 190 hrs. Multiply times 5 (20 hrs(<1 day)to 950 hrs (39.5 days)). Test sensitivities vary, also
