this drug has literally saved my life in many ways. however, the side effects can be impossible to live with. weight gain, loss of sex drive, inability to have an erection/orgasm are just a few of the details not discussed in the MMT Program.

Other than the fact I am now dependent on this drug it has been a good experience. I do not feel it is appropriate for people who use only Vicodin or Percocet. Methadone is more intense withdrawal than either of those. If you are addicted to vicodin, I know from experience it is no walk in the park, try suboxone first.

I have had fantastic results with treating my addiction to opiats, but it has made me very sick. I want to get off of it but find it very hard. It is an addiction in itsself. It takes a very long time to detox. Overall i would say it works well for my treatment but its not ment for everyone. It made me ill and now i find it hard to get off it.
