I snorted 5mg's (half a 10) of Methadone last night and it BURNED, then I woke up this morning and my nose is totally plugged. What is the common/best way to take this stuff? Deal with the nose problems?

yeah i agree just take them, it will come on slowly but you will be zonked for like 8 hours. Snorting them burns alot as you noticed and IVing them can be ver dangerous, I have two friends who OD'ed off IV methadone.

Not to mention the half life of methadone is like 48 hours and its not meant to have a quick rush like Heroin or IV morphine, its meant for long term pain relief. Do urself a favor and don't snort the shit. Eating is by far the best method for this drug, or if ur really desperate plug it. Also taking a tagament (yes the stomach medicine) with methadone makes it more potent, helps more of it metabolize.

You're damn right about methadone burning when insulflated, I
think it's meant to be unpleasant by the nasal route and
something is added to cause the unpleasant effect to discourage
'abuse' I have gotten nosebleeds, SEVERE pain, and of
course the 'ole nose plugged up for the next 24 hours.

Probably better to take orally, but it's your choice.

When I procure methadone now, I snort 1/4 of it and swallow
the rest. That way the effect is a little faster, and 25% of the
pill burns less than snorting the whole thing, ESPECIALLY
the brand-name Methadose pills, those fuckers probably
have 1000mg of bullshit, and 10:1000 is a small ratio.
The generic methadone made by Roxanne ( 54 142 )
are the best if you absolutely have to snort them.

This was the real shit. It's pretty easy to get around here (SouthWest) for some reason. But it's not really my favorite. I like the social aspect of snorting pills.

Typically I get with at least one other friend and we crush something up and sit around and talk while we do our business.

So for me to have a pill that I just swallow makes me less excited and less willing to do it. A pill that burns to snort is not worth the hassle of snorting --and I don't inject.

orally is the only way too take methadone, most effective anyways... Yes you can snort it but methadone dosent give a good rush or anything, your better off too just pop your pills.

Not splitting hairs here but BL should be as accurate as possible in its information. - its more like 24 hrs.
- this is why clinics give one day dosing. but it differs depending on metabolism and maybe as much as 36hrs in some.

Ppl who have no tolerance to 'done may still feel it upto 2 days later. Some of this is down to how methadone stores itself in the liver and how it binds to protein molecules as opposed to drugs like heroin which bind to carbohydrates, making the latters' half life much quicker.

Back on topic of snorting: these tablets have way too much binder material in to do this as a 5mg tab weighs about half gram; so that makes a lot of crap before you get the real stuff in your muscous membranes and a lot will be swallowed or lost by drip or blowing your nose. Thus its difficult to get high as you'd need at least 10mg, so you have to snort a hell of a lot of crap.

Swallowing is the only wayto take these. NOTE also: they should NEVER, NEVER be injected like many other tablets - due to the composition of the binder contents, one substabnce contains glycol and lots of phosphate chalk based stuff which helps nicely to clog up your veins resulting in severe health complications.

Just take them by mouth.Snorting them is a waste.No matter how you take methadone you are not gonna get that opiate rush like heroin.Snorting them is a waste because most likely you will have a nosebleed and the pills will come right out with the blood.If you wanna snort something how about good ole coke.

I was stupid enough to try and snort half a 10mg methadone. I usually dont gag on drips, but for some odd reason methadone gagged the hell out of me. It burnt for about 3 min, it was about 5 min ago. I haven't done any opiates in like half a year now, and it feels like this methadone might kick my ass haha.

If I would have seen this topic earlier I would NOT have snorted it and ate it like it is meant to be taken.

All in all, don't snort methadone. Your wasting your nose on all the crappy stuff, save it for the good stuff haha.

What's the difference? They want us to use the search engine rather than post a new thread.
There's not that much going on in these forums anyway.

The bioavailability of methadone taken orally is near 90% so it just doesn't make sense to do anything other than swallow the pills.

A warning though, tolerance to methadone comes quick and so can death due to its long half life.

I have had days where I have done close to 350mg of methadone and still felt like I wanted more. I HAVE A MONSTROUS TOLERANCE DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME!!!

My point is simply don't do more than you need to get mellow. Methadone will not get you high like oxy's, heroin or morphine. It is a totally different drug. More will not get you higher, it could kill you. Think Anna Nichole Smith and a few others who thought the more the merrier!!

Snorting 'dones really burns and makes you sneeze a lot. I don't think it absorbs at all either. Just eat 'em.

you can get high off of methadone but it will never be as good as heroin. As far as using it to get high once you are on MMT it usually takes about 2-3 times the daily dose. Be very careful with methadone though because it is VERY strong, it is very easy to od on and a lot of people have.

the effects last about 24 hours...a Half-life is how long it takes for half of it to metabolize out of your system....it has nothing to do with how long it lasts...the half life is deffinitely closer to 48 hours...

Oh...and don't snort methadone..=P

^uh maybe with absolutely no opioid tolerance and if mixed with other drugs also, but its very unlikely.

30mg could be lethal for someone with no tolerance under the right conditions, or with the right individual. Some people are especially sensitive to opiates and the respiratory depression effect they have.

I love methadone! Its like coke,pills and speed all in one without the nasty cum down. It also works like viagra, esspically on my fella. I like snorting it, apart from the sting, its much more intense and quicker to take effect.

^Im glad your still around dude. You don't know me or anything (aside from the forum, maybe) but many years ago when I first found BL I practically grew up learning shit about drugs from your posts. . . One of the few truly solid members.

JasonChrest
Hammilton
and Johannesschimpo (sp) also come to mind....... but yea we need more like this, and god knows im not gunna learn enough to do it.

But on topic, the first time I ever bought methadone (was like 13) the guy told me to snort it, I did, than my eyes watered and I thought it was the worst burning sensation possible.... and I didn't get as high Im pretty sure.

CaptainHeroin (another good member) was dead on about the dangerousness of methadone, Don't start higher than 15-20 mg if you have no tolerance....I watched someone puke for 2 days off 20 mg once. (was a petite female person though)

05-01-2010, 22:09
never IV , or snort medication meant for an ORAL ROA. especially stuff like methadone 10mg/mL concentrate. why people iv that stuff , is beyond me.... it really confuses me why somebody would want to do that , especially after reading the case files, (found at the top of the OD page) take a look ;)

Dude... trust me when i telll you stay the fuck away from methadone! Unless your a heroin addict stay away! I cant understand why clinics will put someone with a 60mg oxycodone a day habit on 80 mg of methadone a day... Then your shits in the wind...

im really tempted to close this because there has been several threads where we have discussed the high volume of distribution that methadone possesses. No matter what way you take methadone, it works the same. Injection, plugging, oral, snorting, etc., they all have the same effects and the same onset.

Never snort methadone. It will always hurt and damage your nasal interior. I've done it in the past...and regret it. My nose is shit, I believe, as a direct result. Swallow them ! The effects take a bit to kick in but they last a long ass time.

Check your facts before you post! Methadone has a half life of 24-36 hours. And, half life has A LOT to do with how long it lasts....

With the internet at my disposal and two close relatives who go to methadone clinics, I deffinitely have the correct facts. And when I say a half life has nothing to do with how long somthing lasts, I mean it doesn't last as long as it's half life.

Unless you are saying the effects of methadone last close to two days...=P

There are actually alot of medications that have longer half lives then others, and the effects still don't last as long. So using a half life isn't a very accurate source of how long somthing lasts, it can give you a broad idea though.

Well right exactly. Point being that there is no reason to not want to just swallow it. It's painfree and takes the same amount of time to kick in.

ya dones are not to be snorted or anything else, just eat it.. and ya u can build a huge tolerance.. i started at 10mg and bumped up to 60-70mg in a month.. the are gud 4 withdrawls, if u just wanna sit still and not feel like u wanna jump outta ur skin!

What I want to know is why nobody's talking about dissolving their methadone?

Snorting is definitely out, man. Useless waste of medicine and ruins your nose, we're all pretty much agreed. I don't IV anything. I've been known to plug/push my MS Contin, they're also useless to snort. I still snort my oxy 30mgs sometimes though, it's a subliminal thing, really. I realize now the BA is diminished so am going to think about changing up, but I get 240 of them a month th, so I'll still snort 1 or 2 of them a day, probably.

Just went back on the Methadone-- by choice. The MS Contin wasn't doing it for me- no pain relief. Alas, read a thread here about plugging them when I was down to like, 3 pills; so the last three of them I really, really enjoyed! But today was a toss-up. I no longer have insurance, so by the time I self-pay at the doctor, then the pharmacy and a $50 cab ride (I live in the middle of NOWHERE) I'm broke. Today I was really short on cash. I needed something I could afford to fill right away, today, because I've been out of meds about 2 days and would've been puking sick by this afternoon.

So I asked my doc to put me back on the Methadone. It's ridiculously cheap. 240 of them cost me $30- can you believe it? I pay $300 for my oxys and was paying $170 for the MS Contin. So, I'll fill my Oxys on Thursday when my check comes and until then, got my Methadone.

They work great for me. As someone else said, one 10mg tab lasts all day if you're running low. I was on these things before, couple years back (90mg a day) so my tolerance for these things is pretty good. I NEVER snort them. I've never plugged them. I dissolve them in some water water and just shoot em back. I find they kick in a little quicker that way.

I used to drink up 120mg cocktails and nod blissfully all night long. Since I've been off them a while, I'm starting slow; chewed 2 outside the pharmacy, waiting for the cab, then dissolved another 50 mg when I got home. I went from sick as hell to right as rain.

So, to encapsulate, that's my vote: dissolve the methadone in a little warm water- not a lot, it doesn't taste so hot, yo.

I've actually done it more than once. Its pretty unpleasant, not many drugs burn like that (but I havent snorted any RCs, I hear some of those get painful too). But when you're in withdrawal, all you have is methadone, and you don't think your stomach will keep the pill down for an hour, sometimes you end up railing the methadone against your better judgment anyway.

Why do you think Methadone is the main drug offered in state sponsored detox and maintenance the world over? Because it DOESN'T give the big buzz and CAN'T easily be abused by using a non-intended ROA

Don't use methadone recreationally if you are not opioid tolerant already, and even then don't make it your first choice. It is best for maintenance under prescription and doesn't take kindly to abuse- abscesses, OD's and other problems are likely.

The oral bioavailability of this substance makes it STUPID to snort or shoot. (24 hour party people excluded.) Physeptone pill-shooting causes major problems just like dike or mst (which are worth shooting sometimes for rush/bioavailability unlike Phy). Methadone Mixture shooting (1mg/1ml, the normal green type) is a problem too because of the thick syrup clogging veins. Sugar free meth and 10mg/ml are theoretically shooting-friendly but there is no reason to (and with 1 in 1 you would need a huge syringe to get a decent dose in.)

The main reason for ampoules is A) for very severe pain needing quick relief and B) for a needle fixation. There is no physiological reason why amps are superior to liquid phy mixture.

I've been prescribed methadone 10mg q4d for the past 3 years. I usually eat 40 to 60 mgs then snort 20 mgs at a time throughout the day. I don't keep score, but I probably end up taking a total of 100 mgs or more, per day, til I get low on supply. Then I back off to 10 to 20 mgs per day til my renewal comes in. Probably a dangerous thing to do, but I get high as a fly in a gluebag!
