Re: help needed truely unsure what to do
Methadone is a good pain medication, when taken properly. It is the only opiate that also treats both neuropathic and mechanical pain and it works well for many patients who use it to keep their chronic pain in check. You are at a very low dose and that's one of the good things about methadone is that the doses are frequently much lower than they would be on other opiates.
Just remember, like any opiate , when you are ready to stop taking it, work with your doctor to come up with a tapering plan to allow your body to adjust slowly to the titration of the medication.
Good luck with your surgery, hope it all turns out well.
