The first year was hell until I was referred to a pain clinic that prescribed Methadone. It has worked wonders in controlling my pain, although I do have to take Vicadin with it for breakthrough pain, and periodically my dosage must be increased in order to maintain the same leve ...

I used to take two 20mg oxycontin and four 7.5/500 percocet a day and still was in so much pain that I could not do anything. If I cut the grass in my small yard I was down for three days in terrible pain.I could not sleep for days due to pain I now take three 5mg methadone tablets a day and allthough I am not completely pain free I can now do some chores without fear of day's of recovery.

I have acute degenerative disk disease well before my time. Surgery was not a option and excercise did not help. Low dose methadone has brought me back to life.

Much to my old doctors surprise I am back to liv ... Show Full Comment
