    I use 30MG. OF METHADONE FOR FM PAIN. IT WAS PRESCRIBED BY A PAIN SPECIALIST.

    Not me personally....but 2 family members of mine went to the same pain clinic and both were prescribed Methadone.....

    Absolute nightmare.....for both.!!! They didn't notice their own personality changes or lack of ability to function...it was like living with Ozzie Osborne . They would fall asleep anywhere and were convinced it improved their quality if life.

    I saw that their pain levels did improve....but in my opinion it was improved by it's ability to allow them to escape their reality.....It really didn't improve their quality of life...that is just what they perceived.

    I am absolutley against it as far as improving quality of life..it destroys relationships...There must be a better alternative...IMHO DJ
