More on METHADOSE: Reviews Summary  |  Drug Safety Information

 1  Opioid addiction. Constipation, overwhelming onset with swift withdrawal starting 12-14 hrs. post medication, insomnia, weight loss, nausea, brain fog, high B/P, extreme chills, anxiety. Having a medicine work for 20 years and then being forced to switch to something not nearly as effective-is a nightmare. I wish it works but it doesn't. Setting people up for failure. M 59 8 years

 5  Chronic pain and opiod addiction Occasional constipation and withdraw if I miss a dose. It gave me my life back. Has allowed me to achieve so much and be a very productive member of society. Prior to getting on the methadone program I was definitely a burden to society and quite frankly a sorry POS. Methadone changed all that. It got me past heroin addiction but due to chronic pain I have continued to take it. And I'm OK with that. M 61 30 years

 1  Chronic pain I could not stay awake, bump into walls, lost weeks of my life due to not much memory while on this drug, severe vomiting, constipation, and an anaphylactic lips and tongue swelled. I ended up in the ER where doc said I was having adverse reaction to methadone. I was so sick during this time I lost 4 lbs and I am not a large woman so four lbs. was a lot to lose. I could not eat for more than a week after stopping this medication. This medication is a very serious medicine and should not be given as first choice as many pain doctors seem to do nowadays. Please only take this medicine as prescribed as it can have very serious side effects when taking as prescribed and even worse if not followed exactly as prescribed. F 51 2 weeks

 5  severe back pain sweating,decreased sexual function,itching,dental carries at the root of the tooth beneath the gumline,dry mouth, constipation I was a competitive figure skater for 10 years. Six hours a day six days a week. Began having low back pain at the age of 15. After having three children the pain progressively became unbearable resulting in depression and thoughts of ending it all. Started out on Vicodin, Lortab, Norco progressed to Oxycontin. The Oxycontin was very constipating among other unpleasant side effects. As a nurse of 23 years I was apprenhesive to even try the Methadone given it's reputation. I finally gave in and found the Methadose to be less harsh on the constipation and was less "heavy" feeling than the morphine. I was not informed about the effect on my teeth (they are basically rotting from the roots) nor about the near impossibility of getting off of it should I choose. I despise being controlled by a pill but I must admit the drug has been a God send in my life. It has allowed me to be an active mom and wife and to participate in things that I was previously unable to do. F 42 8 years
 5  opiate addiction sweating, constipation This medication saved my life after 20 years of active opiate addiction and 13 trips through rehab! I cannot say enough good things about it! If only people would learn what it is and how it works before making prejudiced and ignorant remarks about it. F 44 4 years

METHADOSE  (METHADONE HYDROCHLORIDE):  This medication is used to treat severe ongoing pain (such as due to cancer). Methadone belongs to a class of drugs known as opioid (narcotic) analgesics. It works in the brain to change how your body feels and responds to pain. Do not use this medication to relieve pain that is mild or that will go away in a few days (such as pain from surgery). This medication is not for occasional ("as needed") use. This medication is also used to treat addiction to opioids (such as heroin) as part of an approved treatment program. It helps prevent withdrawal symptoms caused by stopping other opioids.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
