Hey there - there is a website that deals with Moms on Methadone - and there is a moderator there named Sharon.  

I cannot answer your question - but she is VERY knowledgeable about all that stuff.  I do not know about methadone - all I know is hydrocodone.  (which I have been taking this entire pregnancy)

Please feel free to email her and ask her - and she'll even call you back.  She's not trying to get you on methadone - (as I really didn't want to sub out one drug for the next)- but she will tell you like it is.

Good luck and keep posting.

Here is the website to cut and paste - take a look - and do contact Sharon via email or call her.  

She emails back promptly and calls too!

Like i said - i know NOTHING about methadone - I just know what I was taking for pain during my pregnancy - and really needed to talk with someone in the know!
Please do let me know how you make out!
