someone i know just got put on the liquid ..im just wondering because it comes with a little syringe ... how many mg is in 1 ml of liquid... thank you so much
Hello there, methadone 1ml=5mg. I am on 16ml which is 80mg. Methadone is brownish liquid or you can get sugarless liquid called biodone which is pinkish in colour. It is the foulest thing you will ever taste !! You mentioned a little syringe.. Over in Australia there are no syringes that come with the methadone if you get take aways which are prescribed for you by your doctor so i cant help you out with that one. Maybe because people shoot it which is definately illegal over here or maybe its there so you can take some out if you are looking to reduce. It is a medication that has to be taken everyday and will block the receptors that give you your smack hit if you are on it for opioid addiction which means it renders your heroin useless if u are on methadone. Others take it for pain medication. Hope this has been of some help to you. It isnt something i would recommend to people. I hate being on it.
i have never heard of it coming with a syringe. If you are planning on whacking it up just be careful. Its synthetic heroin. You wont get the same hit as u would shooting up smack infact you'll feel like crap. Some do it, most dont however get a syringe included with their methadone.
hi there. I am on methadone for my pain. I take 120mg. aday. mine is in pill form and that's the only way that I can get it which is fine for me. most meds. that are liquids come with a dropper to take it with. if you never heard of methadone its been around for a long time. they used it in ww2 for a pain med for soldiers when they were wounded. they started using it for herion recovery and it seems more known for that then for a pain med.. I am no saying it is a bad thing that it is used for that because it is a very good thing that it is as long as once the person is finished with the program they don't get addicted to the methadone because it can happen. it is a very good pain med. for around the clock severe pain like mine. I need my knees replaced, 5 discs fused, and my hips have arthritis that is getting worse. I've been on a list meds. and fentanyl worked for awhile but methadone has been the best for my pain. don't know if it helped but I hope it did.
Whoever told you it equaled 5mg to every 1ml is COMPLETELY WRONG! 1ml equals 10mg and i measure my bottles everytime and I go to a private doctors setting methadone clinic and they told me from day one but remember methadone is very strong and the amount on the inside is around 5 to 8 mg thats why u have to rinse your bottle. The best bet is to always get a second opinion and ask your clinic but u can bank on it being 10 mg to 1ml
