As long as you take it as directed you should be fine. Methadone is a great drug for chronic pain, and it lasts a lot longer than normal pain killers (i.e. lortab, percocet etc.) Just make sure you are open and honest about how it makes you feel, how well it controls your pain, and any concerns you have. If you can get on the right dose, it can help you :)
Hi sweety:-) my husband has sickle cell and takes methadone.. its wonderful with sickle patients. It not only helps his pain but it also prevents him from crisis. Its a good drug for sickle cell patients . Also hydroxarea is something u should look into. It's non narcotic and helps circulaton and also increases ur red blood cell count. Considering ur white bloodcells kill ur red, its definitely something to be of interest.
