I have taken everything ,either from a doctor or a friend most of them worked but only for a little while , i have been prescribed 1/2 to 1 5mg every 8 hrs it already seems to be working but not completely should i find out about going up in dose? When i wake up in the morning the pain is back .it has now been 3 weeks ,
You are on a very low dose but it is very safe to start methadone out on a low dose as people react different from it, but being that you were already on a lot of Paine killers I would think you could handle a lot more then what you are on I would talk to my DR an let him know that it's not working so he will give you a dose adjustment . Most Dr go up 5 MG a week until you get to a dose that is working for you so good luck and talk to your dock and tell him the truth he will understand I promise most people that start off start low and have to make dose adjustments as they go so don't worry about what your dock will think!!!
