PostSubject: Methadone getting into my bones?   Sat Mar 21, 2009 4:33 pm

I remember for a long time my brother in law used to tell me to watch out for Methadone. he used to say it would get into my bones. I have done some reading on the subject and this is what I found out.

From the pages of Medical Assisted Treatment of America;

There is no evidence I know from the research literature that methadone affects the bones directly. I believe that this is an old 'howler' which seems to follow the rule that 'if you say something often enough then people will believe you'! Heroin use may theoretically lead to bone problems - mostly through injuries sustained in the quest for the illicit drug. Methadone treatment will reduce risk-taking behaviors and improve nutrition generally. Thus it probably aids with appropriate bone mineralization, growth and strength at the appropriate ages.

"I will let yesterday end so that today can begin"

Never take any online advice over that of a qualified healthcare provider

Thank you SOOOO much. I have been so worried about his issue, "MYTH". I have heard in quite a few places now that Methadone actually does affect your bones and will "Eat Away At Them". Specifically that it depreciates your calcium levels in your body and it is beneficial to take calcium supplements. It is so nice to feel relief on such worries! Nice to know the truth! I am learning so much here and it seems to be legit due to the sites you give for facts and well, its just all facts in general! Thank you so much for your knowledge and facts!!
