    My name is Greg and I live in Vancouver Canada. I've been on methadose ( methadone ) for about 6 years or a bit more...I hate methadone and always have..Im on 11 mg or methadose or 110 mg of methadone...I would always try to shoot past the barrier which is about a 1/4 gram or $ Dr mentioned a program recently out that pl can go on morphine now today was my 1st day...440 mg or Kadian Morphine ( long acting )..the ratio is 1 to 4..100 mg of methadone = 400 mg or 110 = 440....I thought Id pass out from an amount like that..nope...I feel as normal as ever an even more cheerful..The stigma of methadone would make me sooooo fucking depressed at times I wouldn't even go to the pharmacy to get it..I feel NORMAL swallowing morphine compared to swallowing methadone because I was a junkie....its psychological I suppose...
