You may need to speak to your doctor about adjusting the dose, so it works longer, or perhaps switching to the time released formulation to keep your pain under control longer.

The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

How long have you been taking it?

I have been taking methadone 5 mg 3 times a day, I asked my dr to ween me off this and replace it with something Else, I was given 4.5 slow release dilauted 2x daily and 2mg dilauted 4 x daily but unfortunately I started withdrawing so had to go back to regular dose of methadone, I only got to 4.5 methadone when I started withdrawals, was my dose too small of dilauted?
