I have a chronic pain condition which I've suffered from since 2001. My doctor now has me on 20 mgs. of Methadone twice a day. Plus, he's given me Percocet for when the pain gets a little worse. QUESTION: Since I understand that Methadone negates the effects of other opioids, am I likely to gain any benefit from the Percocet?

QUESTION 2: I've also read where Methadone doesn't give patients "highs" like other opioids, yet it's becoming an increasingly abused drug. If it doesn't produce highs, then why would anyone want to abuse it?

Thanks!

No pain... no pain.
