I am currently trying to get off of Methadone. I am down to 3 ml's in the morning and 2 ml's in the evening. I go down 1 ml every 4 days until I am completely off of it. I have been told that Methadone is the strongest pain med on the market, however, I have found that it did nothing for me. And now I am stuck trying to get off it cuz it is highly addictive and causes major withdrawls. Surgery is not an option for me as I was told by my specialist. What meds would be the best for my pain? I have all types of pain. Today I had to call off from work cuz my pain level was too high. I have Degenerative Disc Disease, 3 Herniated Cervical Discs with Bone Spurs, and 2 herniated discs in my lower back. What other meds will at least help take the edge off the pain so I can function (and work) everyday. To top all this off I am bipolar and have major depression as well as a couple others. Any Sugestions?
