Hey... I do feel like the"drug queen" of knowledge. All those years of nursing have paid off!!! Methadone is used for chronic pain and does a great job! The half life is long and needs to be monitored closely. (Even the Diamond Clinic uses it in injection form for severe pain). Opiods..Morphine, Oxycontin, and Methadone can be used be severe chronic pain..like chronic CH. It certainly doesn't cure it but makes life tolerable again. Yes, there are neurologists and pain specialists that do prescribe it. good luck.....
