You made a comment (on the politics board) about hydrocodone.
What was it?
Parcelling out the pain in batches? Not quite.
With methadone what you get is a couple of nice hours and then back to normal.
I assume the kappa antagonism (if that is right) avoids the slightly depressing quality that people on methadone experience. Maybe that is where the AD effect (if there is one) will come from?
Certainly my experience with methadone was that it was a zero sum game. Those few nice hours are what you have to pay back, or so I felt.
I was reading about some herb and fibromyalgia. What can it have been? I take curcumin. It is possible to find a dose of that which does not aggravate insomnia (I think). I can't remember what it was now.
As you said, it will be no more traumatic than some meds you have been on. Not in the least in fact, until you try to stop. And even then, not so bad.
