In brief: Tired

Methadone may cause a feeling of fatigue or being tired especially when first starting the drug.
This usually goes away with time as the body becomes accustomed to the drug.

In brief: Methadone treatment

The hangovers from pain pills and heroin abuse will stop when you switch to methadone.
You will no longer have cravings for opiate drugs. You are able to function in other important roles of your life: work, family and social obligations. You are least likely to get into legal troubles, and you are more likely to have some extra money in your wallet to take your loved ones out to eat.
