Diagnosed with fibromyalgia 16 yrs ago following an epidural during child birth - back when they referred patients with wide spread pain to a rheumatologist and thought you were nuts. Since those initial, very frustrating first few years of suffering, I was fortunate enough to find Drs who knew it was real and began treating my pain with methadone. Hv been taking methadone for @ 15 yrs. Developed high blood pressure @ 10 yrs ago. Just wondering if long term use of methadone can cause high blood pressure.

Yes the methadone can cause high blood pressure over time after a tolerance build up. if your doctor was to increase your medication; methadone there is a high probability that your blood pressure would return to normal.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I am wondering if these drugs could possible contribute to high blood pressure.
