Need some help regarding my intake of Methadone, please -panicing-

I am currently prescribed 90 mg of Oxycodone (percocet) daily... (three pills, 30 mg each). i do not have any more and it will be a while until i can get my prescription filled, however i have methadone and although my Dr says its okay, i hear the dangers of taking it and i want to double check before i take it.

does my tolerance to percocet affect my tolerancd to methadone (10 mg pills)

Understanding that methadone has a long half-life, will i be able to take 30 mgs at night, and then the next day continue with 30 mgs, or is it to soon thus will accumulate and become toxic?

last night i've taken 30 mg's of methadone and, although the high has worn off, i know it's still in my system. Does my tolerance to percocet affect my tolerance to methadone?

Hello activeDraxx,

If your doctor is prescribing these medications for you,I would take heed to his professional opinion.He is acquainted with your medical history,which plays a big part in what will or won't be prescribed to you.

The body is both a wondrous yet complicated thing.
One's tolerance levels vary,depending on the individual and circumstances presented.

When in doubt, post it out.
