Hi free birds, I'd like to start by saying that really only a doctor can decide how much or how little methadone you need for your pain relief, and what is a safe dose for your body. As for how it can hurt you, with any medication, there are possible side effects. I researched them for you and this is what I found. Methadone has caused very serious (possibly fatal) breathing problems & heart rythym problems (QT prolongation in the EKG, torsades de pointes) also dizziness and fainting.This drug may also cause withdrawl symptoms, restlessness, watery eyes, widened pupils, sweating, runny nose, nausea, vomiting, constipation, dry mouth, drowsiness, and upset stomach. This drug, as with any, has to be used exactly as prescribed and under close supervision of a doctor. I hope this helped. Good luck.

you're very welcome Joe in Boston, have you maybe looked into a pain management doctor in your area? They are very well trained in knowing what the newest and best treatments are for people with chronic pain. It might be worth getting in touch with one. Plus, if she should ever want to change meds, she could be weaned off of the one she is currently using in a safe and controlled manner. (just thought I'd mention that because some people are not aware that just stopping a narcotic pain killer can be extremely dangerous, your body must be weaned off of it.) Good luck to you both.
