Comment:
I have had severe pain after neuro surgery 14 years ago. I was given Oromorph ( morphine liquid )which increased over the years to over 300mg a day! I had to get off it as it runs your life and you become dependant rapidly. It is a horrible drug to get off. I went to Methadone and take a relatively small liquid dose once a day. It is just remarkeable! No feeling of being drugged, it stops the pain ... Show Full Comment

I just wanted to state that I am tired of people bashing methadone. I have had arthritis (AS) since the age of 17. When I was introduced to methadone 4 years ago by an orthopedic surgeon it is the first time in my life I had true relief from the continuous pain being inflicted on me. If people are dying it is because they are not following their doctors directions or they are abusing the drug. I ... Show Full Comment

I realize that it is very addicting and the withdrawel horrendous but the chance to live a semi normal ... Show Full Comment
