I am on methadone treatment, I go every two weeks and take the pills. I took my normal dose 90 in the a.m. 20 in the evening. This morning I took my 90 and 14 minutes later I threw up, I called and they said it only takes methadone 6 minutes to get into your system , but I would think with the pills it would take longer. Should I just wait to see how I feel and then call if I start to feel bad? I have looked and can't find any other information on this situation. BTW, sorry if it makes anybody sick talking about this.
This question has also been asked and answered here: How long does Methadone stay in your system?
Don't worry about making any of us sick. We have heard it all, lol. Anyway, you are going to be ok until you take your evening dose. Methadone is a long acting medication and you wouldn't feel any discomfort from the missed dose for a couple of days anyway. Once you get back on schedule this evening, you'll be fine. Taking an extra dose would be very risky just in case you did ingest enough of the 90mgs you took this morning.
