... meds with little to no relief I had someone suggest asking my doctor to try me on methadone or meprogan. I'm a little leary about trying the methadone and have never had experience trying the meprogan either. Methadone doesn't have anything codiene- based does it, because I'm allergic to anything with codiene it whatsoever. Also, I was told that I had to be a heroine addict to get on it which I am not. Any advice on this would be greatly appreacited
