Re: Smoking heroin while on methadone programme

Why does he smoke again in the first place!?

I'm not an expert but I don't think it's dangerous as you don't build tolerance to heroin but to opiates, he should take half of the two substances or quit using one of them, both would be better of course...

Re: Smoking heroin while on methadone programme

my pet goat personally takes suboxone but he knows many people who take both methadone and heroin, i kinda understand why people take methadaone if they cant afford their habit and mix the 2 but i really cant understand why people CHOOSE to go on methadone to actually try and come off heroin because being addicts the tempatation will always be there to use. With Suboxone you have a blocker (naltraxone) mixed with it making you think twice if you fancy using heroin and im sure you all know that heroin and naltraxone dont mix to well together......
