oxycontin to methadone.

hey shoreline, thanks for responding back a month or so ago. in reference to oxy to methadone conversion. i know everybody is different in how they respond to methadone or any drug for that matter. so you were saying that between 40 and 60mg would be equal to 50 mg of oxycontin tid. right now iam finding that the dose of oxy 50mg tid is just not working as well as it once did i have been on the same dose for over 2 years i think it has been around that long. i have only ever had one increase 40mg to 50mg over a 4 year time which is all i ever really needed but now it is not helping as much as it did. my family doc started giving me bt meds oxy -ir 5mg up to 2 daily as needed. iam just waiting to see pm doc who i have not seen in over a year. he was the doc who originally started me on oxycontin.
Well i gotta run.
