Re: Oxycodone liquid Switching to Methadone? Plus my story in a nutshell

Methadone is far from the only extended release medication, but most are in pill form. It sounds like pills aren't really a good method for you. You could ask the Dr. about fentanyl patches (brand name Duragesic) which is applied to the skin and absorbed thru the skin, a new patch is applied every 48-72 hrs depending on how you react to it. I've never tried it, too many skin allergies to adhesivies, but a lot of people here have used it successfully. You might want to start a new thread specifically asking about it. Normally I would say don't ask for a med by name, but you are in a situation where you have very special needs so you may need to.
