should methadone be mixed with diasapam (valium) and oxycodone (percocet)?

Methadone and benzos (valium) can be a deadly combination. There are some instances where methadone and oxycodone are taking together in pain management. But that is only when the daily dose of methadone is very low. If someone is taking the methadone and oxycodone on their own, and is not medically supervised, it too may be deadly. It couild cause respiratory failure.
Are you taking these 3 drugs?

Try not to take benzos with Methadone. I have lost some of my best friends because of the combination of drugs that you speak of. They died! Please be careful with Methadone and other drugs. I took 135mgs of Methadone for about a year. My counselor expressed the dangers of benzos and done, I didn;t listen really until I seen my best buddy laying in a casket. FOR REAL. Be Safe

That is so sad and I am sincerely sorry to hear about you losing your mom.  My life spiraled out of control for awhile after losing my father in 2001 to a massive heart attack.  To this day, I am unable to discuss it and it is probably an underlying issue of my addiction.
The doctors should be help accountable and I wish you the best with your lawsuit.  I responded to a post earlier today where I was just talking about doctors being glorified drug dealers, often with disregard for patients...they will prescribe anything it seems.  Although it is not called 'commission', that is exactly what they get from pharmaceutical companies for pushing their drugs.  So many lives have been disrupted and ruined because of the negligence of doctors -
Again, I am so sorry for your loss, if you ever need to talk, feel free to email me.
