hi to all i have recently started taking methadone for treating pain and i also had a morphine addiction for about 6-7yrs. when i went into detox 12mths ago the doc's put me on suboxone and 6 weeks ago i got down to 1mg but was so sick i couldn't function anymore. anyway my gp put me onto methadone 15mgs then 3 day's ago i went back to see him and he increased the done up to 25mgs and about 2 hours after i have my dose i start nodding off all the time and cant seem to stay awake,read or concentrate?? is this a normal side effect from the methadone?? if anybody kno'w about this sort of thing please let me know. much appreciated.
