I worked with hospice for many years . If we changed pt from methadone to ms it was calculated at a 10/1 ratio. I was on 30 mg of methadone but due to prolong q wave cardiologist felt med needed changed. I was put on Ms and med tech argued that is a one to one conversion so my dose went up. When did conversion change and why am I in such withdraw and severe pain.

Unfortunately, there is no definitive conversion between Methadone, and other opiates. However, the current ratio used is 1 to 4.7, this is taken from the NCBI Journal of Palliative Medicine.

You may not be on the correct dose, at this time. Have you informed your doctor about the problems you're experiencing?

The FDA warns that opioids carry the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, constipation, and headache.
