Methadone is a CII drug which classifieds it as very high abuse potential. Someone who is not a chronic Morphine abuser can and will go into respiratory arrest if taking methadone ALONE in moderate doses and it does give a high "similar" to any opiate at these doses. Of course it doesnt readily pass the BBB like most semi-synthetic opiates but it can be abused with a fatal outcome. I've actually abused methadone before I've even got into Heroin and Dilaudid.

Rockingham - Im not attacking you but maybe for YOU methadone was a breeze but it took me 3 years to get off the drug. Sure enough, Yes I did relapse and used for about a year after but this time I went on subox instead.
