I really have no answer to that question. I could probably ask the other nurses I work with. All I know is that I'm on 65mg of methadone and I had to cut my hours way back because I sleep all the time!! I'm just now starting to force myself to stay awake for more hours and another job. So I doubt there is any truth to your question. Even with my jobs I still sleep every chance I get. Before I was sleeping 14 to 16 hours a day but then noticed If I get up and keep going I wouldn't feel the need to sleep. Weird considering I would shoot up like crazy and have all kinds of energy. Hope you find your answer

There is no truth to that at all that I know of and I took 140mg of methadone not too long ago along with ritalin and then adderall. I took the stimulants to keep me awake from the methadone, it made me more tired than any other med I have ever taken aside from sleeping meds. I had to continue taking stimulants just to function even as I went down on my methadone dose. So far I have decreased my methadone dose by 45mg and I havent seen any decrease in how sleepy I constantly feel. I will let you know if that ever changes but I do not believe it will until I am completely off of the methadone.
