My husband has been suffering with chronic pain from several abscess/fistula surgeries. He has been on many different pain killers. He was on Oxycontin but had built up a tolerance and it just wasn't working and it became a vicious cycle trying to get relief. He has now been on methadone for about a year but again his tolerance has built up. He has a high tolerance so that doesn't help his situation. We are wondering if he should go back to the oxycontin or something else. Our concern is how do you switch from methadone to something else? can you take other pain meds with methadone? any help would be much appreciated. I am so tired of watching my husband suffer, we are too young and have been dealing with his chronic pain for 6 years now.

need advice and understanding...
