I have never heard of someone ( unless a hospice affiliated agency) that sends chronic patients home on a " pump " . Is methadone in your IV? If not,i have heard DO NOT mix any other narcotic with methadone.....

The Methadone is prescribed to take 3 times a day for break-thru pain and my pain pump in an intrathecal device implanted in me to deliver pain medication to my lower spine. Morphine is in it. Some pain specialists do prescribe Methadone (pill form) for breakthrough pain because it works longer, stays in your system longer, and it works on 2 different pain receptors in the brain. I also have other chronic pain issues besides back pain. I'm new to the area and not just any doctor can prescribe Methadone for pain management. Hope this helps.
