Hi, Ken! Sorry about how miserable you are.

It really may not be necessary to use both. Methadone and Subutex are both potent narcotics that can help with pain and treat addiction.

Learn more Subutex details here.

Learn more Methadone details here.

They are both very strong and proven effective, but the Methadone tends to be extremely addicting. Most people that take it, for pain or addiction, end up on a lifetime maintenance dose of it.

If you really want to eventually become drug free, Subutex is likely the best choice.

Does anyone else have any advice to add?

in the same situation for disc pain Says:

Ken. I hate to hear what ur goin thru but I'm in the same boat. I have major disc problems and should be on pain meds the rest of my life. The pills got to be a problem like ur did and I have been on suboxone for about 6 months now and I can tell u that this will give u ur life back. I wish I had known about suboxone sooner but am so glad I finally decided to get help. It helps with my back pain and I have had no withdrawls from my other pain meds. I was on oxycodone for about 7 or 8 years but taking suboxone has kept me from even thinking about pills almost completely. Do urself a favor and atleast try it. I promise u will be suprised at how u will feel normal again without having to worry about pills anymore. Good luck to u my friend and I wish u the best on ur journey to get off pain pills.

I've been there and my Dr put me on methadone 4 yrs ago. Works great for the pain but the side effects are horrible. I'm trying to get off If it right now but I'm going to do it very slowly. Please think about it before you start. It's the worst drug to detox off of.

Hi all, I'm not going to state my name but I've been on pain meds my whole life basically. I'm 34 and I use to take 200 mg of methadone a day and after switching from subs and zones I'm down to 10mg of done a day. Well I decided to IV some sub and I didn't withdrawal at all. A few months ago when I was on 60mg of done a day and did a shot of sub as soon as the plunger stopped I went straight into detox. All in all if ur on done and take a sub if u start to detox take ur methadone. It will bring u out of it. 30mg of done is the highest I would b on before switching to subs. I'm almost off all of it now though and it has been a long hard road I hope I helped someone out there with this

I had brain surgery and they put me on Methadone and it did work some for my pain, but im an addict so i was chasing that just like i have pills in the past...i kept going up and up on methadone (was outta my mind) got up to 150mg and then it was HELL trying to get off of it, the s*** wrecks your body...look it up or talk to ppl it gets down in you bones...anyways i have to take something for my pain and i did my research and started taking Kratom (its a plant) never in my wildest dreams did i expect a plant to help my kind of pain but it has and now i am free from chasing anything! If you ever consider trying it, dont waste your money on the stuff they sell at head shops or in gas stations...thats s***. Anyways i order it online in bulk and you have to be careful with that as well because there are also crappy vendors to watch out for, just read reviews on different companies and the different strands.
