Common misconception....methadone isnt an antagonist - it doesnt block opiates all the way and it is not like narcane - a total antagonist - you can add, or mix and match for a (deadly) high....the sub is much more of an antagonist although it has properties of each. And with sub you may take other opoids, but the brain receptors will be almost shut down for reception of the opiate dose and response....and you certainly wont get your moneys worth if you try for a buzz while taking the sub. From my methadone experience I think your friend is better off with the combination rather than raising the methadone dose....and the Doc knows what he is doing with the combo - good luck to you

15 years on methadone for pain. It stopped working and  the amount of other pain meds I need to take is crazy. I can take my 160 mg of methadone plus 120mg of morphine and get no extra pain relief, Its crazy, stay off the Methadone, its really bad and stops working long term. Good pain docs know they have to change the meds after 6 months. But its a hard work and they (the docs) dont like the extra work. Just like they dont like calling you on the phone, Im ready to go to mexico and pay a doctor there to take care of me!
