Switching From Methadone To Roxycodone

heathercc Says:

I was taking 90 mg of methadone daily. I switched back to Roxicodone. wats the ratio of methadone to roxy? I use it for cronic pain. I moved and there wasn't a clinic in my state so I had to go back to the roxy. I am experiencing withdrawl even after taking the roxy.

Hi heather,

Sorry to hear about the withdrawals. I hope you're doing better by the time you read this. It sounds to me though like it would be a good idea to contact your doctor first for a professional opinion on finding an equivalent dose since he/she is the one prescribing the medication. However there are also a number of 'opioid conversion charts' online that you can look up on google for added assurance.

Maybe if you have a plan in action the doctor wont mind temporarily prescribing a higher dose of Roxicodone to help offset any withdrawals from switching over?

Id say equel not sure what dose of roxies or say 30 mg perc is like 30 mg methadone long lasting so theres a difference. Depends on ur metab. Id say 30 mg of an opiate for someone on 30 mg of methadone.
