I am used to oxycodone and hydrocodone for my back pain. I have never taken methadone before, what should I expect? Does it really help with pain? I heard it was just for drug addicts.
I never had good luck with methadone, I was started at 5mg. to begin with, and within about 8 hours of ingesting this methadone, I looked like a lobster, I had hives so bad I had to go to the ER to get some medication to stop the itching and swelling. I have nothing good to say about this drug,however each of us have different reactions to just about any medication, if it works for you "wonderful" I wish you all the luck possible. I had better luck with percocet which is the med I take now.
Pain is really a touchy subject, since no two people ever have the same reaction. I wish you many pain free days as possible, also good luck with the methadone. God Bless and Good Luck. Please check back and let us know how it is working you! midwestma
