Used in controlling cravings for addiction/dependence, methadone is dispensed in one 24-hr dose. When prescribing methadone for chronic pain it is best taken 1/2 the dose twice a day or 1/3 the dose three times a day so the patient doesn't experience highs and lows, rather they experience continuous pain control. For myself, I am on Methadone for chronic pain and find it best taking 1/2 the dose in the morning, and the other 1/2 in the evening. I get my Methadone in tablet form. Best

I am taking my methadone down to a slower pace. I tried 30mgs a week (from 60) and all I want to do?
