I use to be a great landscaper,before I started taking methadone once I begin taking my dosage on a regular basis I began having stamina problems on my job,and sweating alot where I had to bring extra shirts to work.Does methadone cause some people too sweat abnormally and get tired from shortness of breath ?

Yes, it has been known to cause all the symptoms you've described, according to detailed FDA reports. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, and constipation. They also warn that it carries the risk of being habit forming.

How long have you been taking it? Most side effects tend to improve with time, as your body gets used to the medication.

You other medications can also cause fatigue and increased sweating, under FDA reports.
