Re: How often to take methadone

If you have a breakthrough med that could help. Best wishes.
Hey Tortiosegirl! I worry about that alot,but in my case My Dr. Gives me 3 scripts of methadone...all dated the day of my visit... he tells me to wait 30 days to go back for another month..I only see him 3 months..He says per DEA I often wonder if this is on the "downlow" or not..However I went 3 days without any methadone and I will not say I was feeling great,but I was able function...I also tale 900mg's of Lyrica and I hear that helps opiate withdawel... One thing if for sure...I am going to not run out again next month!I am going to write down every time I take a dose so I can keep up with it better!!!
