Talwin is another narcotic opiate, meaning it is also addictive. If your goal is to be opiate free, you would be defeating your purpose to turn to talwin, which would keep your addiction active. In short order, you'd have to detox off the talwin, which would produce similar opiate withdrawals.

However, if you're NOT looking to get clean - but just to get by until you can get more of your drug of choice, talwin would be a comparable substitute.

Thanks everyone for your answers, I didn't think it would really help, but it was worth asking to be sure. I've been taking these damn pain pills for many years and I just want to be normal again, so a few months ago I got on a methadone program, I was on methadone maintanence program about 20 years ago and been off methadone for about 17 years now, so I figured I'd do it again, well after only a few weeks and only on 50 mlgs, I had to ask to be lowered cause I was having a hard time functioning on simple day to day things, I don't remember all of it, but my husband and kids told me how I was acting...
