Yes, but my friend had it prescribed for pain, not as help for drug addiction.  He gets it in his home.  No weirdos to deal with.

Everyone that I have run into in my practice that is on methadone or has ever used methadone looks and sounds like a zombie.

I can join you in that perspective from my experience in working with people also


I have an exception tho of a guy that had fibromyalgia who took methadone...  he was ok... just obese...  but didnt have the strung out/burnt out opiate feel to him

Nope. They all look like garbage and they never deal with any of their problems. Most of them are also on some kind of benzo too. Benzo's + methadone = as fucked up as you can get and it's all prescribed by a Dr. I have no idea how methadone clinics are legal. 

I was just looking up the cost of being on it... It seems like it's around $100 up front and then $12 every day. 

We'll call it $4,500 per yer... per person. 

There are 800 people that go to ONE methadone clinic in the part of Boston that I live. 

$4,500 x 800 = $3,600,000.00 

AND the Dr. that started it runs TEN clinics in Ma.

I have someone very close in my family on it for pain from a gunshot wound that messed his spine up.


I will not go into everything I know but one thing is for friggin sure. Methadone and pals promotes no memory.

So to hang out with a Methadone user is to hear their same thoughts over and over. Then you discuss some more

Any drinks in one's system can be a death sentence with Methadone in your system.

I personally know 3 men who found out the hard way.

My best friend in high school had the same scenario as mentioned above. 

His wife had chronic fatigue syndrome and to get off the pain meds she was on methadone..

She never could get out from under it and died leaving my friend and his four kids without her.

There are many people that try and get back on track that are not heavy drug users, it is a very dark and serious step that I wouldnt wish on anyone.

Methadone is just a weak legal cleaner lab version of Heroin.

When I was in Vegas one night, I did not drink but took 5 5's of methadone and a few blunts in my pocket. I was staying at the Imperial Palace on the strip and walked from the start of the new end of the strip all the way to the Stratosshere and back just lovin life seeing all the people on the streets.

I do not take em but I have tried them.

i cant count on all my hands and toes how many people thIat have died mixing benzos and methodone.I knew a girl that wrecked her car so many times they wouldnt even let her drive.Its sick how much money these clinics are making.Yes,its better than heroin,but it aint far behind.A lot of rehabs just WONT TAKE ppl on methodone its so hard to get off..I wonder how its legal for ppl to drive on over 100mg  a day..Zombies could not be more acurate.I hear about ppl dieing left and right doing heroin.U dont hear that much up here in Madison county bc the penalties are so harsh if u get caught w it.Benzos can be very helpful if u take as precribed,but ppl ett a bunch and act like idiot..The amount of ppl at the cllnic is in the thousands.When I take my sis its just sad looking at all these people..A lot look just rough.

My father in law had an addiction to Percocet and he had to go on methadone as a result. He overdosed in 2007 and I found him in his apartment a day later. Tried cpr but obviously it was too late. He would take two of his carries at one time thinking that he would get a buzz and he would still take the perks even though it didn't do anything. His dr would do regular urine and blood test and when you fail your test, the dr is supposed to take away one of your carries and if you fail again then one more carry gets taken away and so on. This is supposed to be protocol until you have to go into the methadone clinci everyday to get your stuff. This doc didn't take away any of his carries even though he failed his urine tests multiple times. Basically, the methadone mixed with the perks slowed down his breathing to a point where he stopped breathing all together and died in his sleep. I take pain killers for nerve damage I have to my sciatic nerve and I was given the option to go on methadone but I am going to stay as far away as I can from that garbage.

MA has some of the highest incidents of opiate addiction and overdose deaths in the country.  I think its because of many factors one being that meth never took off around here like it did in most other areas of the country, therefore it never replaced opiates as the new drug of choice.

i somehow built up a tolerance of 8mg of xanax over a two year period taking it every few days usually to help me sleep or if i had anxiety. I could take 8mg and go run 5 miles and did that kind of athletic activity on it numerous times. My doctor had no clue how I could do that. I had to taper off that garbage and now im all the way down to 4 mg once every 3 days and go down half a mg every week. xanax is a great drug to fix a temporary problem but  should not be used over a long period of time. I'm pissed I was ever prescribed it, but it was an amazing drug while it lasted. If i could still get a great night sleep off a little football .5 mg xanax id be in heaven. no more pills for me though. withdrawal blows

my doc claimed since i wasn't taking it everyday i could probably make it cold turkey, but i'd rather play it safe and taper. I've gone almost a week without it and felt like death. I quit klonopin cold turkey and had no clue it was dangerous to do that with benzos. that was a rough week or two.

My bro went through a phase of abusing Benzos.  One night I came home and he was passed out on the couch with cake frosting all over him.  He had eaten two cans of it while he was high on Xanax
