Best Answer

yes.. i have known people to abuse methadone when they cannot find heroin. methadone also has a withdrawl factor that can be compared to actual heroin withdrawl. eventhough it is used to get off heroin its really just substituting one for the another.

How do you take 57 71 m 10 mg methadone pills?

What does snorting 10mg methadone feel like?

First off, snorting methadone is not a good idea. If your asking what it feels like, it will burn the crap out of your nose and will get stuck up there. All methadone pills expand when they are exposed to moisture and grow to about 1-2 times there original size. On top of this, snorting methadone is pointless because it is a slow acting and absorbing drug. It does not absorb quickly into the bloodstream like many other opiate pills. So snorting methadone will not get you any more "high" than if you take it orally. You will actually lose a lot of the medication and feel less of its effects due to it becoming stuck in your nose. and taking forever to absorb.
