METHADOSE: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Opiate Withdrawal “For around 5 years of my life I was an extremely bad heroin addict. It completely and utterly ruined my life, to the point where I attempted to commit suicide by ODing on dope and Xanax. I’ve been on methadone close to two years now…. I have my family back and am working on rebuilding my life. Unless you have tried and failed w suboxone, going to a rehab, etc you have no business being methadone. If your taking something like Lortab, try and kick it yourself, or do a low dose suboxone taper. Methadone can turn you into a lifetime opioid addict I had tried everything. Suboxone/subutex make me very sick and I had tried to quit in evert way possible, even 30 day inpatent. I’m scared about coming off but with a support system I’ve seen it done successfully. I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO DOUBT THAT METHADONE SAVED MY LIFE.”

For Chronic Pain “When I was seeing a doctor I would get 30 mg in the morning 30 mg in the afternoon and if I needed it 30 mg at night between those times I took 30 mg of instant release morphine three times a day if needed. This was better than just the methadone .I had no pain at all with with the methadone and no morphine with it I would say 1 to 10 I give it a 7 or 6 and that’s the diskets I found that the liquid did not hold me as long and within 8 hours I was back in pain at least my pain is tolerable now”

For Opiate Withdrawal “I’ve been on methadone linctus for 27 years now. The dose has varied as the roundabout of doctors & care workers has come and gone from 50ml [1mg to 1 ml] right up to 140ml. It for me ha sbeen a chemical ball and chain holding me to a chemist and a doctor. It rots your mind and body away slowly. I wish they had just given me pharmaceutical heroin and be done with i. Methadone in my opinion is the most vile drug. use subutex always. I am too old now and it wasn’t about when I started to take it from one who knows. Subutex is the way to go”

For Opiate Withdrawal “I’m a heroin addict for almost 2 years , my tolerance is 1,5 – 2 bundles a day. One day someone told me if u hooked on dope you going to loose everything. I was like, nothing is stronger than me and my will, I never thought that such a thing can control your life. You feel like a prisoner. My daughter is almost one year old and last time I saw her over 6 months ago my wife moved out and I’m about to loose them for good. I can’t live like that anymore. It’s so hard I’ve tried subaxon but I think I should try methadone first cause is stronger and my habit is bad. I wanna kick this addiction as fast as I can and I don’t want to be hooked on meth or subax more than 6 months. I’m just asking you for advice start with methadone or subaxone ?”

For Opiate Withdrawal “I’m at 110mgs a day, kept me clean from other opiates now for a year, only downfall is that it doesn’t seem to last as long as I need it to, by the early evening I feel down and weakand not to mention the dry constipation…. But really how can I complain? I’d take a little weakness and dry shit any day over the life I had during my addiction. Not only has this helped me with an addiction but with chronic back pain, I have degenerative disc disease, ruptured, slippled and bulging disc in my back, for the most part methadose controls my severe pain… I think god for it but I truely don’t want to be on this my entire life.. 26yrold female”

For Opiate Withdrawal “Methadone has once again helped me get clean for almost a year. I detoxed off of it 12 years ago & yes it was tough but possible. Take it nice and slow when detoxing and consider a blind detox so you cant convince yourself your feeling a drop in your dose. If you can afford Suboxone I would suggest that over Methadone for easier detox.”
