This is one reason I think Suboxone is a better choice that HAVE to use an opiate replacement program. The unique action of Suboxone makes it much less easy to overdose on.
yes, you are definitely right about that.
as you may know, I am not a big fan of the sub system and the way SOME doc's dole it out, not to mention other things..........like money and monoplies
but I have certainly met some here,that have shared thier sub stories, and they were prime candidates for it.
and methadone certainly has saved many lives too, but with sub now, the question is......do we need it?
hey Gnarly,was out of town............ take your time and do what you feel is right, but also do what its going to get the job done also. 'done is a tough ******* to deal with. it takes some REAL determination !!
but like I have said before...........could be alot worse things to deal with !!!
I had a friend die from overdosing on Methadone.. as they were trying to get off of heroin...
I NEVER KNEW that you could overdose on Methdone until my friend did....
Do we need Methadone? I think we do right now. The prime reason is that it's cost effective where Suboxone is not. Sub is supposed to be released as a generic later this year. When the cost becomes a non-issue, then I agree, Methadone may become a dinosaur. (There will always be patients that favor it because it's so much easier to abuse than Suboxone).
methadone is better than sub when it comes to it being used as an analgesic. and if your an opioid addict it definitely does the trick. I liked it and it sure made me feel great !!
the problem is its being used as an analgesic(pain killer) nowadays, which is what the nazis developed it for originally,during WWII. in one state,of the 1095 drug over doses, that year........795 or so were from methadone !!! the key was to get, IV street users and other heavy opiate addicts off the streets, and away from the nightmare of heavy street addiction. it did its job in the day, but now being used as an anagesic?
a local kid ,whom was a big 6"4 kid at 18 years old, made the mistake of eating a whole waffer.......was dead the next day. very sad.
I can say i will never forget the wd's from the 'done !!
Is Methadone prescribed for long term chronic pain issues ? Just trying to figure out if it's something that someone with long term chronic pain issues will HAVE to take for the rest of their lives...and if so... will they have to be on Methadone for eternity.. and does it require an increasing dose due to tolerance?
