Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 months ago):
Currently Undiagnosed back pain. Numbness and tingling mostly on left side and groin (some on right) sore feet. History of bipolar and headaches. Doing physical therapy and above medications. Back pain has gotten mildly better in 2+ months of treatment. Currently bad enough cannot work due to pain.
From this study (5 months ago):
I know that methadone can cause nodding. I am way beyond that stage of MMT though. I can admit that at certain points I was a horrible patient! I used everything under the sun to supplement getting high. I've been on doses of 345mgs, 230mgs, Split doses, Liquid, & Tablets. I've been on the dose I'm at now which is a split dose & the lowest dose I have been on, for well over 1 year. I have had clean drug tests I don't use any illegal drugs, I don't drink.
