i've heard of that... being recomended to people who are on the wait list to get onto the methadone program. i dunno how many of those suckers you need to chew. but it is supposed to help with the cravings a little. you can get them from bulk bins (you might want a fair few of them)
> > yeah, i think methadone is best avoided too...
I hurt my legs a while back... I didn't know how much morphene they were giving me for that until... they said they were concerned about how much morphene i was using to deal with the pain and they wanted me to consider going on the methodone program to manage the pain / cut back. But the trouble with methodone is that it has 2X the life of other opiates. so that means... your body takes 2X as long to withdraw. I think the real problem... Was that I was going to be discharged and they didn't want an outpatient to be getting morphene tablets... I managed to taper back the morphene tablets though... Switched to codene and tramol (tramadol? something like that) and it wasn't really so much of a problem to stop...

I haven't heard of either of those.
What are they?
