I would like to use methadone legally instead of codeine illegally. Im currently using 30/500mg tabs, of codeine 5 a day, that I have gone down to. How much methadone is equal to that amount of codeine a day.

I don't think any doctor is going to put you on methadone with a codeine addiction. Can you go cold turkey?? Your on a very low dose as far as abuse goes and you should be able to stop with only about 4-5 days of withdrawl. Going on methadone at this point would knock you on your butt... Good luckl... Dave

If you are on very large amounts of codeine and are addicted to it doctors will and do prescribe methadone. This usually done at a clinic where you would need to attend everyday and take it whilst been watched by a doctor or nurse. I know someone who was taking 28 codeine (30mg) each tablet a day, you cannot come off this amount without very good support and with methadone or something similar.The best way to not ever getting addicted to this drug is NEVER TAKE IT unless really necessary.I hope this helps you.

no I'm not using codeine, just a couple of times for my back. I was just interesed to know. I am on the methadone program already, have been for over ten years. I would not and I don't even feel the codeine, as you would already know, I gather. I must of worded it properly. Anyway thanks for the answer. I do have another question to ask you later. Sorry I just sore what I wrote. I thought you may give me a proper answer if I said that. Sorry. I just was not sure who would look at what I wrote. Now I feel safe, and tell truth
