Wow. Those doses are close! The closest i've known of for pain was every six hours. But that is 30 mgs, plus another opiate for breakthrough pain. And they did raise her to 40 for a while after that, still every six hours. But that was being on it for years with a high tolerance. Poor lady is having to try something supposedly stronger now. Always keep in mind, the more you take and more often you take it, the less effective it becomes in the long run. Try to keep that tolerance down. You can always save the extras for those really bad days
ya thats not a very high does but then again some people are very fragile to methadone. some people take 20 or 30 mg of methadone and can be throwing up all day. what works really well is a promethazine mixed with the methadone. it takes away any throwing up and any kind of head ache it works GREAT.
