Question about methadone? If I took 30mg of methadone 13 hours ago. Is it safe to take 30-40 mg of hydrocodone (Lortab) now? I do have high tolerance for hydrocodone - normally take 150mg per day and have for the past year. I do not have an established tolerance for methadone though and have only taken it 2 days without taking any hydro. I know the methadone stays in your system longer so don't know if 13 hours is long enough and safe enough to wait to take hydro now. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
Provided the medication is prescribed by the same doctor, I would consult with him/her. Not accusing you of doctor shopping, but at the very least try to wait it out a little longer. You can also call a pharmacist and see about the timeline. 150mg (hydro) regardless of the high tolerance, seems like too much. Ask your doctor to switch you to a stronger pain med that won't damage your liver and you won't need to take as often. Good luck to you.
