    Default HOW LONG DOES METHADONE STAY IN BODY?

    how long does the methadone stay in your body? Do you still feel the withdrawls after your body/urine/blood is tested and comes out "clean"? Does a lower does 1-15ml stay the same amount of time when only used 1-3 times ever in a persons life, versus someone who takes lets say "100ml" and has been on it daily for a while?

    Hi ~

    Yes...you still feel the WD after you test clean. Still kicking. Testing clean doesn't translate to no WD.

    No...if someone has used Methadone at, say, under 15mg only 1 -3 times total, there is no comparison to someone who has been on 100mg for several years.

    The 1/2 life of Methadone will dissipate at a quicker rate for the person @15mg on a short stay vis a vis the person on 100mg for several years. There's less to decay in the former case.

    For either individual....regardless of the amounts...the bottom line is that there's still the component of addiction to contend with after they get clean and the hows of staying clean.
