Methadone is given for detoxification and temporary maintenance treatment for narcotic syndrome in people who are addicted to some form of narcotic.  It is not given as a treatment for any other condition except pain.

Methadone acts sort of like an anti-depressant.  I take methadone, and I do have to agree that it does help with the anxiety disorder.  I have a severe panic disorder, but also, other opiates like herion help with those disorders.  I wouln'dsuggest taking methadone for that reason unless you are also suffering from an oopiate addiction.  To tell you the truth, I'm starting to lose beliefs that methadone actually helps unless you stay on it.  Which I had never planned on it...I someday wanted to be free from that nasty herion.  I feel like I have switched for something that just doesn't make you fell good.  Be careful. I am now on a low dose of 12 mgs;  I hope after 1 mg, I can say it was worth it.  Goodluck
