Reviews for Methadose

SWIM · Taken for 2 to 5 years August 8, 2019

For Chronic Pain "Finally, relief. Of all the medications I have taken for pain, methadose is by far the most effective."

GIGI · Taken for 2 to 5 years January 11, 2019

For Chronic Pain "I take Methadone for chronic back pain caused by failed back surgery and for CRPS. (Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome). My life would be useless if I can't control the pain. But my doctor is my family practice physician and doesn't seem to be able to stay with the dosage. He makes many mistakes when writing the prescription and we only realize it after we get it filled. Then he refuses to make it right. Leaving me to try to stretch the amounts as best we can. I'd change doctors but I am afraid he will cause me to lose my ability to get it. He has even threatened to do something if I don't go along with the excuses he makes. I don't know what to do."

For Opiate Withdrawal "Methadone has been great for me. It's important to get a stable dose. As a lot of people are afraid to be on a high mg. But whatever it takes to get you to not use is key. If your on a low dose but using still then what is the point? So don't beat yourself up just work with your Dr. It's nice not go thru withdrawal and not to mention it is great when the drug seeking behavior finally is over with. Do yourself a favor and if your struggling with addiction try this."

Two.Pills · Taken for 1 to 2 years January 30, 2018

For Opiate Withdrawal "For around 5 years of my life I was an extremely bad heroin addict. It completely and utterly ruined my life, to the point where I attempted to commit suicide by ODing on dope and Xanax. I've been on methadone close to two years now.... I have my family back and am working on rebuilding my life. Unless you have tried and failed w suboxone, going to a rehab, etc you have no business being methadone. If your taking something like Lortab, try and kick it yourself, or do a low dose suboxone taper. Methadone can turn you into a lifetime opioid addict I had tried everything. Suboxone/subutex make me very sick and I had tried to quit in evert way possible, even 30 day inpatent. I'm scared about coming off but with a support system I've seen it done successfully. I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO DOUBT THAT METHADONE SAVED MY LIFE."

Terrie keys · Taken for 10 years or more November 18, 2017

For Chronic Pain "When I was seeing a doctor I would get 30 mg in the morning 30 mg in the afternoon and if I needed it 30 mg at night between those times I took 30 mg of instant release morphine three times a day if needed. This was better than just the methadone .I had no pain at all with with the methadone and no morphine with it I would say 1 to 10 I give it a 7 or 6 and that's the diskets I found that the liquid did not hold me as long and within 8 hours I was back in pain at least my pain is tolerable now"

For Opiate Withdrawal "I've been on methadone linctus for 27 years now. The dose has varied as the roundabout of doctors & care workers has come and gone from 50ml [1mg to 1 ml] right up to 140ml. It for me ha sbeen a chemical ball and chain holding me to a chemist and a doctor. It rots your mind and body away slowly. I wish they had just given me pharmaceutical heroin and be done with i. Methadone in my opinion is the most vile drug. use subutex always. I am too old now and it wasn't about when I started to take it from one who knows. Subutex is the way to go"

cantlivelikethatanymore May 7, 2015

For Opiate Withdrawal "I'm a heroin addict for almost 2 years , my tolerance is 1,5 - 2 bundles a day. One day someone told me if u hooked on dope you going to loose everything. I was like, nothing is stronger than me and my will, I never thought that such a thing can control your life. You feel like a prisoner. My daughter is almost one year old and last time I saw her over 6 months ago my wife moved out and I'm about to loose them for good. I can't live like that anymore. It's so hard I've tried subaxon but I think I should try methadone first cause is stronger and my habit is bad. I wanna kick this addiction as fast as I can and I don't want to be hooked on meth or subax more than 6 months. I'm just asking you for advice start with methadone or subaxone ?"

kashadacurious1 · Taken for 1 to 2 years March 15, 2015

For Opiate Withdrawal "I'm at 110mgs a day, kept me clean from other opiates now for a year, only downfall is that it doesn't seem to last as long as I need it to, by the early evening I feel down and weakand not to mention the dry constipation.... But really how can I complain? I'd take a little weakness and dry shit any day over the life I had during my addiction. Not only has this helped me with an addiction but with chronic back pain, I have degenerative disc disease, ruptured, slippled and bulging disc in my back, for the most part methadose controls my severe pain... I think god for it but I truely don't want to be on this my entire life.. 26yrold female"

xxvv September 25, 2014

For Opiate Withdrawal "Methadone has once again helped me get clean for almost a year. I detoxed off of it 12 years ago & yes it was tough but possible. Take it nice and slow when detoxing and consider a blind detox so you cant convince yourself your feeling a drop in your dose. If you can afford Suboxone I would suggest that over Methadone for easier detox."

Greg Davis · Taken for 10 years or more September 18, 2014

For Opiate Withdrawal "I been on Methadone for 13 years and is only Drug that helped me and Doctors say I will always be on this Medicine , 1 dose of 150mg in morning and I am Great all day and Night !!"

DaveyB · Taken for 1 to 6 months September 7, 2014

For Opiate Withdrawal "I have struggled with addiction my whole life and no matter how I try cannot abstain for long on my own. Methadose had made this a walk in the park. I have my life back. I can be in the moment and experience life (good or bad) as it comes. I consider Methadose a life saver."

jettttjunkie February 26, 2014

For Opiate Withdrawal "I've been on methadone for over 27 years and all I can say is that Methadose saved my life, if not for the clinic I go to I probably wouldn't be writing this opinion right now. This medication has helped me to lead a normal life after 15 years of addiction."

Jamie001 July 27, 2013

For Chronic Pain "Methadone helps me tremendously with my chronic back pain, very functional as well."

luvdrug March 13, 2013

For Chronic Pain "I've taken Methadone for 20 months now for chronic pain due to fibromyalgia, neuralgia, back and neck pain and migraines. This has helped me incredibly well. I've been able to function and gain my life back again! The only drawback is some weight gain...not a lot though...about 15 pounds over the time span, which is not a bad trade-off for crippling chronic pain. Although there is a stigma connected to methadone users it's worth it to finally be nearly pain free and be living again!"

justme1223 · Taken for 1 to 6 months October 13, 2012

For Opiate Withdrawal "I was a heroin addict for 4 years and I lost everything including my family. Methadone helped me get my family back. If you are struggling with addiction, I highly recommend methadone... it saved my life."

seirra-ann April 18, 2012

For Opiate Withdrawal "Methadone is wonderful for opiate withdrawal and pain management. My doctor had prescribed me Percocets and Oxycontin for a year, for pain. When she cut me off, the withdrawals were too much. She recommend methadone for the pain and withdrawals. I have been on methadone for 1 year 7 months and been clean for one year as May 2012. The benefits include withdrawal and pain management but side effects may include weight gain, but it does subside once you are on a stable dose, eat properly and exercise daily. Good luck to everyone who is on methadone it works!"

YoungPAIN April 8, 2012

For Pain "This is the VERY best pain medicine I have tried. I had so many issues finding a doc to help with my pain and they never gave enough to totally control the pain so I was constantly going out finding supplements to add to my scripted pain medicines. Ever since methadone I have needed nothing except some morphine for breakthrough pain. "

For Opiate Withdrawal "Only bad side effect takes all the water out of your intestinal tract so when you go to take a dump it's like squeezing out a very hard dry brick! and it is NO JOKE! I highly advise drink lots of water before hand to lower the effects of this."

Anonymous July 15, 2011

For Opiate Withdrawal "I was a bad drug addict for many many years until we (husband and I) found methadone. My husband is gone because of lung cancer and was taking it up and until his death but I am still taking it and am very glad to be drug free. "

sdalabama June 20, 2011

For Pain "I have had sacral joint and nerve pain since 2000. I started taking Lortab and when those didn't work, oxy's. I finally managed to get off those by taking 5-10 Lortabs a day. I was a slave to the bottle, every hour or two. It was awful. Now I take 1-2 methadones in the morning and I am fine till the next day, about 80% of the time. Occasionally I have to take a 5mg one 1 hr before bed, but all in all it has been a relief."

Tdogg June 20, 2011

For Pain "I have been taking methadone HCL 10 mg tablets for 10 years for chronic pain. I love this medication greatly and yes it's a lifesaver for sure. I had been on everything from Ultram to Oxy 80. I can tell you that this medication blows them all away. I started out on 3 a day for 8 years and in the last 2 years I have been on 4 a day. My pain is managed to about 96%. It seems to take a really long time for immunity to set in. This is the best pain medicine on the market. "

tammcf March 8, 2011

For Pain "Methadone is a very good pain reliever. I use it for nerve pain and tinosinovitis and haven't found anything better. Unfortunately, I changed from a doctor to a clinic and my new practitioner lowered my dose by 20 mg per day, which put me back to not using my hands very much. "

wasaadict October 25, 2010

For Opiate Withdrawal "I was taking 12 to 20 ROXY 30mg a DAY for 5 or 6 year's. It all started when I was in a car crash and then a motorcycle wreck. I was taking it for my pain to help me and then when I tried to get of the medicines I didn't know that it was going to be this HARD. I thought just ''STOP'' and that's IT but no I was so sick and so on. My friend told me about METHADONE CLINIC and I started to go there and since then I have changed big time and I know what I'm doing and so on Thank's GOD for methadone."

For Opiate Withdrawal "I was addicted to heroin and doctor-shopped for prescription opioids. Been in a clinic for over a year and haven't used a thing. It saved my life."

JOHN LA MAR May 25, 2010

For Pain "After trying percocet and time released morphine for chronic back pain, methadone was the only pain reliever that lasted for any length of time, but now my pain management clinic closed in 4/14/2010 and I'm trying to find a pain clinic(doctor) that is not afraid to prescribe methadone."
