U people r right its not the methadone that's to blame for loosing teeth n the all the other problems they reported. That is simply their own lack of basic hygiene n any motivation to help themselves. Just like you all, methadone saved my life. I'm sure those people where all the type to use the methadone as just another high while still out banging dope everyday. I know for a fact not just from my own experience but from others as well that if u use the methadone like they tell u n stay off if the other drugs then it does work, 100%!!! I can't stand all these people I keep reading about how "methadone" ruined there life. Well, I'll say something they should've known from the beginning. It's not the methadone, its urself!!! It's ur own lack of any type of control or willingness to try n control ur habit. If u would take responsibility for ur own life n mistakes n stop blaming it own everything around u, u might be able to really get ahold of ur addiction n go on n live as u should. I've been an addict for twenty years n finally decided that I'd had enough, so I thought I would try the one thing I never tried n that was methadone. I owe my life to methadone n I promise u if u take the methadone as directed n only the methadone then it will work! PLEASE STOP BLAMING METHADONE FOR UR PROBLEMS!!! UR SCARING ALOT OF PEOPLE AWAY FROM THE CLINIC WHEN IT COULD SAVE THEIR LIVES!!! N THATS NO DIFFERENT THAN KILLING THEM URSELVES!!! I REALLY DO HOPE N PRAY THAT ONE DAY THE NIGHTMARE WILL BE OVER FOR U BUT IT NEVER WILL UNLESS U CAN TAKE THE BLAME URSELF N STOP TRYING TO SAY METHADONE IS THE REASON U R WHERE U R!!! WE ALL KNOW THAT IS NOT THE CASE N SO DO U!!!

If u go to the dentist and brush your teeth after meals your teeth shouldn't fall out , methadone doesn't cause tooth decay, as far as low sex drive methadone does lower testosterone levels I take a shot once a week and I'm as horny as ever , 10 years on and other than my take homes getting weak (potency ) after 7 days I have no issues ; get up exercise , go to dentist and if it's that bad go back to shooting dope because that worked so much for you .it's the cry babies on this site that make the discrimination never ending, methadone is not the problem it's the person taking it that wants a scapegoat for being lazy , you all know your lives got better so tell the truth and maybe the insurance companies would start paying for it , or just stop taking it and shut up

I guess you never read scientific methadone studies. It's different with everybody. Don't generalize because it worked well for you. I take care of my health and I still gained weight when I used to be a skinny dude that was training almost every day. My libido is dead, yet I eat spinach, eggs and oyster every day. No, I can't say it doesn't work. It works, I'm more productive than ever, but health-wise, methadone is like any other medication, it has side effects. The people that complain are not to blame!
