Comments from related studies:
From this study (4 years ago):
This is very disturbing.
From this study (4 years ago):
I have been taking methadone 10mg tablets, 4 tablets PO Q12h(every 12 hours) for chronic pain management for approx. 8 years now. I don't experience, haven't experienced any adverse reaction(s) or health concerns from long-term use of methadone. It works very well for pain, better for me than other opioid-type painkillers (EG- Duragesic(fentanyl transdermal patch 100ug/hr)
OxyContin(oxycodone extended-release 40mg)
Kadian(morphine extended-release 90mg)
Opana ER (oxymorphone 75mg)
Methadone lasts about 12 hours in duration of analgesic activity(pain-killing). You experience side effects typical of morphine-like drugs (EG drowsiness, hot-flashes, itching and sometimes nausea, which usually can be relieved by lying flat on your back, with as little head movement as possible. METHADONE IS A FEDERALLY CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE SCHEDULE II CATEGORY (CII)
DO NOT STOP METHADONE UNLESS DONE BY YOUR PHYSICIAN, THIS CAN CAUSE SERIOUS REACTION(S) CALLED OPIOID WITHDRAWAL SYNDROME, WHICH CAN BE VERY UNPLEASANT AND CAN CAUSE OTHER COMPLICATION(S) WHICH COULD BE FATAL.
From this study (6 years ago):
There are more side effects but I can't think of them all. I wasn't having problems until I started taking methadone, but I still have problems when I don't take it. In general I feel awful all the time now.
