Curious, who gets methadone simply for pain? I experienced a fractured vertabrae leading to a multitude of back and hip problems and after years on oxycontin my Dr. put me on methadone for both maintainence and pain. The withradrawal was absolutely horrid. There is no easy way to get off this drug without swapping it for an equally addictive alternative. Do not start this therapy unless absolutelty necassary. You become way to dependant.
