methadone is one of the strongest and longest acting opiods and feel for the person who has to suddenly come off of 100mg.

Hey Cy, If you don't mind me asking and I don't mean to sound rude honesty, but don't you think you overcome your addiction to the dillies by now using Methadone for 10 years? Now you're addicted to the Methadone ...I understand. Yes, you're right most people are on much higher dose especially from addiction that go to Methadone Clinics. All Methadone Clinics are not created equally ...by no means. They want you addicted to the Methadone another reason they increase peoples dosages to ungodly amounts.They are in it for the Money(greed) and the majority of Clinics are owned by Doctors.Do you ever consider detoxing?
