Can a person taking methadone also recieve steriod/cortisone injections?  What would happen if both we administered?

Hello Questions,

Welcome to MedHelp's Pain Management Forum.

If your physician prescribed the medications together then follow his/her recommendations. Whenever you consult a physician they always ask what meds you are currently being prescribed. Therefore I assume the physician that will be administering the injections is aware that you are on Methadone. Am I correct?

Thank you for your response.  I was curious because this is a recommended treatment for a friend and it seems like there would be a conflict between the two treatments.
