    Well, I was just wondering if it was ok for me to workout while on Methadone if I don't over do it? I know you feel no pain but I don't want to over do it. And would it be ok on my heart?

    Well I had a pain in my leg so I took part of one to ease the pain. I think I hyper extended my leg playing basketball.

    it's a synthetic opioid. the high lasts a lot longer, but isn't as intense.

    Methadone is a synthetic opiate derivative / opioid that is most commonly used as a maintenance treatment for heroin and opiate addiction.

    no...it was developed in the late 1800's because it was supposed to be a non-addictive alternative to morphine. In 1914 the US put a big tax on it because they realized it was addictive then 10 years later banned non-medicinal use. It actually wasnt until 1970 that medical heroin was banned in the US.
