equivelancy to each other for pain management.I have been taking the 40mg oc's for 4 yrs or so.I would like to know if their are any new generic on the market.I was on the oc when they made you switch over to the real brand because they couldnt get generic anymore.anyway as to my first question I found this bottle of methadose in my medicine closet from sometime ago and was wondering of its strenght.The only thing I can remember about it was that it made me sleepy and took away the pain I just dont remember how much I needed to take.The directions on the side of the bottle looks like it got damp or water on it somehow.I cant read it.I take 6 ocs a day now.
