Methadone stronger than oxycodone?
I switched from 10 mgs. methadone 3 times a day to 10 mgs. of oxycodone 2 times a day. The methadone worked for pain but made me nutty. Oxycodone is better for that but this dosage doesn't seem to be helping me as much as the methadone did for pain. I am going to the doctor to try to get the oxycodone up to 20mgs. Should I ask for 3 times a day instead of two? My pain is unbearable right now. If I take more than I am supposed to he will count it and i will get in trouble. I don't want him to think I am a drug addict either. He is a good Dr. and he knows my pain. But I don't want to push it with him. I really think that oxy will work at these doses and we can stick to this medication. Should I dare ask him or just go back to methadone for pain relief but remain nutty? Help! Also, is Methadone really considered stronger that oxycodone?
