Re: Methadone and Dental Problems
Hi Guys: As you know, I'm on Methadone and have been for a little over three years. Yes, it's true, Meth can create dental problems. It's because it tends to give you dry mouth and without siliva, you're more prone to cavities. I had quite a few the first year, but I now drink Pepsi all day. I had to switch to the Diet kind or I would be defeating the purpose, but the trick is to keep your mouth from becoming dry. This year my dental work went down significantly. I'm also on two other kinds of meds that cause dry mouth, so I have my drink with me all day.
I hope that answered some of your questions.
