methadone 160mg a day and 60 roxicodone 15mg twice a day.i am only 29 been dealing with major back problems since i was 18 and i also take xanex for anxiety and sleep.i feel like since i been on the methadone so long they dont work as well as they used to i hear about the subutex but i would have to be on it for a long time and it would have to help my chronic pain.any suggestions?
first thing i can tell you is that you are on way too much medicine. Methadone doesn't build up the tolerance like other meds. I don't know of anyone on that much methadone unless they were on a methadone clinic. If I were you, I would bring myself back to 60 or 80mgs of methadone, and only take roxicodone for breakthrough when you just can't take the pain anymore. you have to be careful taking methadone and xanex together also. I have been on methadone since 1984 and I am no where near you and I have R/A with one knee replacement waiting on another, so I know what pain is. i am just trying to let you know at such a young age, if you keep going at this rate you will be in baaaad shape and then nothing will help. so good luck and I can truly help you bring yourself down off some of those meds. Hope I didn't sound too condescending i just want you to know how serious it is
