Unfortunaly,i have irritable bowel and i want to try Methadone to eradicate the constant pain.Of course the lower dose possible.The pain doctors have a long waiting list in quebec city area.If it's possible to have a phone consultation to figure out how to manage the treatment it would be great.I know others people with IBS on Methadone and that help them more than anything else.
The world of anti-pain medication is so big,i'm lost.

have you discussed this with your family doctor or nurse parctioner? that's who you need to start with.
become as knowledgable about this subject by doing internet research, check out books available at local bookstore re treatment of ibs, perusing books at a hospital or medical library near your home, look at crohn's/collitis foundation wesite etc.

i'd be very warry of any practioner giving you a telephone consultation regarding starting such a serious medication program without a thorough history and medical exam.
the key to effective pain management program is your pcp and you partnering to improve your quality of life. good luck in finding the best pain mgmt program that works.
