Yes, it does. The one thing nobody mentions is the fact it will rot your teeth out. Most things I have read online chalk it up too an addict already having bad teeth.. Its bull. and not always the case. Ive been on methadone for about 5yrs but not for drug addiction but for a pain med. Its starting to ruin my teeth and it sucks as this is the only pain med thats given back somewhat of a life. Methadone use for drug addiction im really not for, but I dont judge. Jsut what have seen wth these clinics are they over medicate these ppl (using way to high of a dose) getting ppl more addicted to what they went there for to begin with and its harder to get off of. I use 60 Mg for pain (severe) along with other pain meds and have seen methadone clinic patients on 200mg plus.. thats INSANE! BTW: they also dont tell you anything over 60mg put you in a higher bracket for heart problems. People are dying because of being over medicated..Methadone is a long acting drug, it dont go away in 24hrs. Severe withdrawls wont even start til around 4-5 days without it. Long Term use of this drug is no good, Unless its absolutely necessary like in my case.
