COMPLETELY AGREE!!! It did the same thing for me! I have a great life now, and if in trade I have to take a few pills everday to make me feel normal (the way that everyone else gets to feel that has not had to suffer extreme pain); then I will take that trade off. I just don't get it...why continue to torture yourself...try the methadone, if it doesn't work for you then you know that you tried. I went in with that attitude and AMAZED myself with the positive changes I experience as result. It is a miracle drug!
