    hey its bentleys aunt and i;m just learning the computer so i;m not going to worry about spelling or caps ect. this may noit helpful but... i've been on and off mostly on narcotics for pain for almost 20 years. i unfortunately have an extremly high tolerance for pain meds. currently and for about the past year have been taking methadone 40 mgs. twice a day. recently its not been enough. i experienced about an 8 lb. weight gain. it did help for quite a long time but i needed something for breakthrough pain and my doctor won't give it. i would at least try it for a week or so. it really has helped me. but not as much as ms contin so i'm going to see if she'll put me back on ms contin. i experienced low to no nausea but, that could bee that my tolerance is so high. good luck ,much luv.

    methadone is the ONLY thing that helps my pain....
    i take 40-60 mgs twice a day and then add in 10 or more as needed.....i have been on it for years and it still works!!!!
    nothing else even makes a dent for me...
