Does Methadone Make You Feel Good
I've quit methadone cold turkey 38 days ago from 30mg. I feel pretty good now except for my legs arm still hurt and feel restless. I's this normal?
What is a good reduction rate for methadone-i ake 10mg morning 10 6 hours later and 15mg bedime for pain. Want at least to reduce. ?
About 10-20%/week: You are on 35 mg per day. I would recommend reducing by no more than 5 mg per week. Week 1 using 10-5-15, week 2 10-0-15, week 3 10-0-10, week 4: 5-0-10, week 5: 5-0-5, week 6: 2.5-0-2.5 and week 7 just 2.5 in the morning or evening, depending on when your pain is worse. However, if you aren't treating your pain in some other way (talk to your doctor), your chances of success will be less. ...Read more

What do you suggest if my friend said they got a good high off of methadone and I wanted to try it but someone said a tiny bit can kill you?
Don't do it: Why not get high on life instead? I've autopsied a few folks who've died from experimenting with friends' methadone. The dose he tolerates might kill you very dead on the first try. Truth be told, I'd encourage you to find friends who aren't addicts. This is a dead-end road in a world that offers many opportunities for things that are much less dangerous and more fun. ...Read more
My friend said they got a good high off of methadone and I wanted to try it but someone said a tiny bit can kill you. Is that true?
DO NOT TRY!!!!: Firstly, methadone is a class II prescription opioid, the class for drugs which are the most dangerous. For people who are not tolerant to opioids, relatively small amounts can cause overdose, or at least severe sedation that can cause car crashes and other problems. At 43, I would hope that experimenting with getting "high" would have become old by now. You are taking excessive risks - get help. ...Read more
I'm on methadone 10mg 4 day and dialudid 2mg 2 day. Iv had 3 l back fusions & 2 comp syndrome surgeries. I have severe pain still. R these good meds?
Yes and No: It can be common to have residual or even chronic pain after multiple surgeries and the pain medications are given for pain relief. This being said, the idea behind pain relief and opiate pain medications are changing drastically now and new advice being recommended includes weaning down on your pain medications and use of pain interventions to help treat your pain rather than mask it. ...Read more
Maybe?: The use of opioids to control chronic nonmalignant pain is a complex and somewhat controversial issue. Pain conditions differ with respect to their sensitivity to opioids. Most of the debate about the role of opioids in chronic pain management is based upon both the safety and efficacy of these drugs and the potential for abuse. Also dependence and addiction.
