Methadone is a highly effective drug that is used to treat pain and opioid addiction. Over the past few years, there has been a decrease in the number of overdose deaths involving methadone, according to the National Institute for Drug Abuse. In 2015, 3,300 people died from Methadone overdose compared to 4,418 in 2011. Methadone's serious side effects are similar to other opioids. Serious side effects include abnormal heart rhythms and respiratory problems.
As with other opioids, the risk of becoming addicted to methadone increases with longer usage and higher doses. If you or a loved one are suffering from methadone addiction, give The View a call at (877) 310-4343 to get help today.
