“METHADONE HAS KILLED THOUSANDS”

Are you aware of how EASY it is for our loved ones to illegally obtain Methadone.

Death rates are on the rise due to this drug.

It only takes one pill or one dose to kill anyone who has no tolerance for opiates!!

Many people have died from methadone toxicity, even when it was prescribed to them?

How much methadone was your loved one able to get their hands on today? If you believe that someone you love will experiment with pill/downers, than WARN THEM. Please do this before it is too late!

Please read my profile at myspace. I have posted a journal there regarding the literal hell that we went through for 16 days after my son was hospitalized in ICU. My 22-year-old son Timmy was discovered by his roommate, NOT breathing. He had purchased methadone on the street and had taken it.

My son died because of methadone intoxication. The amount of xanax in his toxicology report mattered not to his attending doctor at the time.

The doctor spoke solely of methadone and nothing more. HE NEVER indicated the mixture of the two led to the overdose of my son.

One would have to conclude that with this consultation with my son's doctor, the amount of xanax found in Timmy's system was the least of his worries.

METHADONE IS THE CULPRIT.
METHADONE KILLED MY SON.
METHADONE KILLS.

Regardless of the "success stories" regarding methadone, there are "tragic stories" as well.

If you mix methadone with more methadone, then it will kill you!! WHY?

If you do not have ANY tolerance for opiates, methadone is an opiate, then you CAN DIE from the very first pill or dose you take.

Methadone is DEADLY because is is sooooo slow acting. For example, you take a methadone pill at 9 in the morning. Around 3 in the afternoon, you are saying: I don't feel any effect from the methadone pill I took this morning, I am going to take another one.

NOW YOU HAVE DONE IT. YOU MAY AS WELL SAY GOOD BYE TO YOURSELF AND LOVED ONES. If you have NO tolerate for opiates, the extra methadone you just now took is "doubling" up in your system.

Since methadone is very SLOW in and leaving, the two doses you took are still in your body.

Since methadone is a Central Nervous Depressant, this means it can make you STOP breathing in your sleep. Methadone is TOXIC in that it is sooooooo SLOW to leave your body.

Methadone is deadly.

Let's put aside other "additives" mixed with methadone. A coroner here in this article plainly states that if methadone had not been taken, people would NOT have died. BTW, you have to read the ENTIRE NEWS ARTICLE to get the full grasp of what is being said regarding HOW DEADLY METHADONE REALLY IS!

http://blog.mlive.com/chronicle/2007/12/chron...

I have a journal here at MYspace that you may read if you wish...it details the last 16 days of my son's life while he was hospitalized in ICU. My son Timmy suffered SEVERE BRAIN DAMAGE FROM EXPERIMENTING WITH METHADONE. He had stopped breathing in his sleep. Timmy succumbed to brain death and I had his life support discontinued on Sept. 02, 2008

YOU have the chance I never had. PLEASE TALK TO YOUR LOVED ONES ABOUT PILLS/OPIATES. Many, many people are experimenting with them, or have the opportunity to do so. I never knew how deadly this threat was, until it happened to us!

I went to the memorial for your son and it was very touching & I am sorry for your loss. I dont ever want our disagreements to make you think I am down-playing or disrespecting your loss, OK?
I promise you even if there is only a tiny amount of Xanax with the Methadone it can lead to death.
In 2002 my room-mate (then) stole 1 of my take-outs methadone that I had (he was 22yo & I didnt think I needed to lock-up my meds) Then he took 2 10mg Valium, Needless to say he spent Christmas In ICU (Dec.25-30th). Thank GOD he made it through but our DR. said if I would have found him 1-2 hrs. later he would be dead right now. Plus I work in the ER, so see if anyone knows the dangers of methadone, its me. I would probably day 99.99% of all deaths of Methadone INCLUDE some other "downer">

No it doesnt make me "high". I take it to eliminate the cravings I have for heroin and OxyContin. Without it I would be on the streets using drugs & doing illegal things. Methadone maintenence does not work for everyone, but its the only way I can hold down a job & be a productive person in society.

that being said, why would a person take methadone for any other reason, than to stop those cravings?

In other words, if I was a person who wanted to get high.....and I stumbled upon someones methadone prescription.....why would I take it?.....if it did nothing to the avg person?

I am un-educated about methadone......why do you think I asked the question?

you seemed to know the answer, and yet didn't answer the question.

then tried to insult me with the uneducated remark.

thanks a$$wipe......I looked it up so I don't need an answer from a junkie......talk to someone that gives a f&%#.

And I do enough research online to know that Methadone, and methadone alone has caused the deaths of many people. I see you state that in 2002, this is 2009, a friend of yours took some of your methadone pills. So my point is, why have you been taking methadone for this amount of time?

You obviously have to be addicted to it, especially by now.

It's none of my business of course, but your own statement sure raised some flags with me.

Freeme, here on this forum, even posted and stated how horribly addicted he is to methadone and wants desperately to get away from it.

The real expert I spoke with also works in an emergency room and ICU. He is a DOCTOR and only spoke to me of the methadone found in Timmy's toxicology report and how anyone who has very low or no opiate tolerance can easily die from using methadone. NOT ONE TIME did he say anything about the MIXTURE causing my son to stop breathing.

Methadone need not be combined with any other drug. It kills alone!
Methadone is a killer drug and is prescribed to those with addiction to opiates. Methadone is also prescribed too liberally to patients suffering from headaches, sprained wrists and menstrual cramps!
Heroin is a deadly opiate and Methadone is supposed to suppress the horrible withdrawal, if the doctors can give an accurate prescription the first time to ensure the first dose of methadone does not kill the patient it is intended to cure. Methadone kills many times on the first dose, meant to "cure." If a cure is obtained with Methadone, Methadone just replaces one addiction with another.
Methadone users stop using heroin successfully, to find they are now addicted to Methadone.
People using Methadone for pain caused by long-term injuries now find after its use, they are now addicted to Methadone and can't get off this deadly, addictive drug.

Jabber and chris, thank you for your comments. Jabber, how fortunate for your friend that you were there when you friend literally fell asleep in her cereal bowl.

Whoa...this deadly drug has got one purpose in life, and one purpose only: To aid those dying of cancer or some other horrible disease. It has NO place in anyone's medicine cabinet right next to the antacids and band aids.
