I have been taking methadone for about 8 months. I get and keep real bad headaches on this med. If i laugh,strain, bend over, any kind of pressure to my head, it starts pounding and makes me get sick. Basically as long as i dont do those things i can tolerate it. But its really putting a strain on me. I cant enjoy my self and it restricts my movements. Has anyone else had a similar problems, and if so what did you do to treat it? Anyone have any ideas?
unfortunatly this happens too much but do not Cold turkey this!!! it causes psychosis and tons of other problems... anyway i would talk to the doctor and if you on this for detox then ask to start tapering down if you on it for pain ask if suboxone of subutex would be better with these side effects
