From this study (1 week ago):
I have been on methadone for 6 1/2 months now and since July 25th I've had rhabdomyolysis twice. One dr thinks it's caused from the methadone and I find it hard to believe. The first time I got it I went to the gym and lifted weights for a long time. The second time I wasn't doing anything but calisthenics. I am getting a muscle biopsy done on Monday to see if they can find something. But if they dont, can it really be from the methadone? I really hope someone who has been through this or maybe a dr can answer. All input is appreciated. Thanks for your help.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
Every Saturday, I take my 100 mg dose earlier than usual (typically 2-3 hours earlier) due to working the Farmer's Markets. We may be under a tent, but it doesn't block out all sun while it is coming up to the high noon position. I am out in the sun for around 5 hours. By then, I have sweated out any fluid that I had ingested, and keep ingesting, I cannot move my joints for it feels like I'm bloated and there is no lubrication in the skin, and I cannot stay awake an hour after finishing. When I awake after a nap, everything is blurry, my eye lids and eyes squeak with movement, and my skin cannot feel anything besides pressure. It takes a few days to recover. I typically stay out of the sun the other 6 days of the week as much as possible. I had not had this that bad last summer when my dose was 45 mg.
