Facts

  • Individuals who use opiates such as morphine, hydromorphone, or oxycodone may experience withdrawal symptoms within six to 12 hours of the last dose.
  • Methadone's life threatening side effects have occurred even in patients that were just starting to use methadone for pain control, and have also been observed in patients who have switched to methadone after being treated for pain with other strong narcotic pain relievers.
  • Methadone used in opiate maintenance therapy was originally developed to help obliterate withdrawal symptoms and support a healthy lifestyle. However, the effects of withdrawal far exceed that of heroin which causes the individual to become addicted to it instead.
  • The FDA has urged physicians to use great caution when prescribing methadone, because of the potential for respiratory distress and dangerous changes in an individual's heart beat that cannot be felt by the patient.
