I believe I've read on here that at least one person is taking lowdose methadone for their chronic pain. I've been doing some research and it seems ld methadone can be very effective for my particular case (brachial plexus avulsion/traumatic amutation of arm/phantom limb pain). My questions are 1) for those who are taking it, for what conditions and how effective is it? and 2) how would/did you approach your doctor concerning this? Or was it the doctors idea? Any help/info would be gratefully appreciated!!
