How long do you take methadone after heroin addiction?

You don't have to wait methadone is an opiate. It will work just the same as heroin. Its not like suboxone.


How long will methadone block out the effects of heroin?

I am on methadone and have been for years. I am also taking college courses, one being Psych Substance Abuse and Addiction. The answer is until the methadone is out of your system. It may take days, weeks, or months. For me, it would take months, but if you took methadone but you're not used to taking it, probably a few days or so. Methadone does block the effects of heroin, which is why a lot of people use the methadone maintenance treatment programs. If I were to try to use heroin tomorrow, it would just be a waste of time and money because I wouldn't even feel it, and I would hella pissed, which is the purpose of it blocking the heroin. The withdrawal from methadone can take weeks or months, and it's more intense than heroin.


What is a cure for heroin?

Can you take heroine after you took methadone?

This is extremely dangerous as when you take methadone it blocks the receptors in your brain that allow people to get high from heroin, so when people take heroin after they have taken methadone they get no extra buzz from the heroin just the negative effects of having heroin in the body, mixing these can result in coma and severe respiratory distress Also, if you are a recovering addict/infrequent user, then you will have no tolerance to opium. This can result in a dangerous miscalculation and the consequences are deadly. Also avoid benzodiazapines such as rohypnol, valium, clonazepam and temazepam to name a few
