I used to take two 20mg oxycontin and four 7.5/500 percocet a day and still was in so much pain that I could not do anything. If I cut the grass in my small yard I was down for three days in terrible pain.I could not sleep for days due to pain I now take three 5mg methadone tablets a day and allthough I am not completely pain free I can now do some chores without fear of day's of recovery.

Comment:
I have used it for two purposes; 1) to get off of any and all narcotics I once used for pain but then began abusing, and 2) for severe pain from several accidents I have been in. It is incredibly effective for controlling my pain, and has relatively no side effects that I notice, with the exception in the beginning fatigue.
