methadone was developed by nazi scientist durring WWII, as a cheap analgesic(pain killer) their access to opium sources was precarious durring the war and they were in dire need for a cheap analgesic.

it was exactly what they needed, a cheap and extremely strong narcotic pain killer for the various combat theaters around the globe.

it is a synthetic narcotic opioid, used as a replacement for addicts with heavy addictions. it is very strong and last much longer. it works well for getting heroin and heavy opiate addicts of their DOC.supposedly it does not harm the internal organs, and its much safer vs shooting up smack or popping 30-40 percs, obviously.

its very addictive like all opioids and opiates, and works well for pain management. it should only be used as a last resort, because it carries with it very harsh wd's and long term wd's.

dont even come near it.........

supposedly it blocks out other opioids and opiates, but I sure as heck enjoyed taking norcos and other oxys and stuff while I was on it......

I had no idea how it worked, and sure liked it better myself. instead of munching down a bunch of norcos all day long, I could take some 'done and then use less pills with it. over time it builds up, then your totally maxed out.

it was  the worse thing I ever wd from. it took a month just to be semi normal...........

in one word methadone SU##S ive been on it for 6 1/2 yrs and hove been tapering off it for 8 1/2 mo after being on it I would never recommend it to anyone other then a heroin
addict and at that I  would only recommend a quick taper.....this stuff is pure he11 to
get off of im coming of 150mg and am down to 1mg and the withdrawals are somthing
I just have to live with my body has sorta been in a constant state of withdrawal since
I hit the 10mg mark so unless your into torchering  yourself stay away from the methadone.....just a thought....Gnarly
