Is my liver being damaged? and would a pain medication like actiq be better for my body?
8 Aug 2011
Methadone collects in the liver, however causes the liver absolutely no harm whatsoever. Methadone is actually one of the better drugs to use long term, as long as your heart is ok with the drug. People with liver diseases can even take methadone. If the methadone has been working for you, it really would make very little sense in switching simply due to the difficulty in switching and guessing how much of the drug is in your system. Methadone is also a drug with no ceiling, so not only does it not harm the liver, if need be, you can up your dose as is needed.
I hope that this is of some help to you,
