    Default Methadone for pain relief

    Is anyone here on methadone for pain relief or has been in the past? How did/do you find it?

    Thanks

    Not personally. But it can be effective pain relief when used appropriately

    My bestie's mum is on it (stage 4 lung cancer) and it works well for her but does make her a little vague- no surprise there I guess!

    Haven't been on it personally but as an RN of 15yrs, I've given it to a lot of patients with good results for pain relief. It's like opiate drugs that as long as your dose is right you shouldn't be 'on the nod' but alert with adequate relief.

    Thanks guys. I'm currently on OxyContin and endone and my counsellor is trying to get me onto methadone. I do need pain relief until I can have my op but I'm not good with it so I think it's a good solution.
