would suggest 5mg, if not 2.5mg for a first time dose (yes, even with stated tolerance). Remember, methadone
is going to take longer to kick in, and it's going to last much longer than a person who takes percs/vics is used to (up to 12 hours, though 7-10 is most common). It takes SWIM 1.5 hours to feel the first effects of the methadone dose, and an additional hour to get to the "peak" phase, when it's at it's strongest. Keep this in mind when consuming methadone recreationally!
Be careful with methadone; a friend of mine procured methadone tablets for himself and thought he didn't like it - he figured that since he took large doses of oxycodone
to get off that he'd need at least the 10mg tablet of methadone, if not 2 of them. After weeks of trying and feeling shitty, he finally figured out that he only needed 5mg of methadone to get where he wanted to be, whereas he usually needed 80mg of oxycodone insuffalated a day to be "happy".
Please try it on it's own first before you go potentiating it; I know a few people who are long-term opiate
dependant (like, taking it daily for more than 4 years) who found they could cut their doses in HALF if they took a normal dose DXM
-containing cough medication with it. It's no joke - it's a strong medication as well as long-lasting and it needs to be respected!
Everyone's different, and everyone responds to methadone uniquely; start low and wait a good long while (3 hours) before deciding if a dose adjustment is required.
