i cant feel that the other medicine i take works because the methadone blocks it.i take xanax and roxi.i been on the methadone for 7 years
You are wasting you time taking the quick release oxycodone(roxicodone) or any other opiate (heroin included) while taking methadone. You would be better to try 60mgs twice a day and see how that works. Be extremely careful taking xanax with methadone. These two drugs combined are responsible for most of the methadone related deaths. When you mix the two it suppress the respiratory system especially when you're sleeping. So you don't even realize you're in trouble until someone finds you dead in bed in the morning. Most doctor's will not order any benzodiazpine with methadone because it has that bad of a record.
Taking extra opiates even roxicodones and xanax with methadone you are very fortunate that you haven't had problems. I would suggest you bring these concerns up to your doctor... Good luck and be careful please... Dave
