From what I've read, it doesn't seem that one could IV the methadone
wafers. I know you can't IV the tablets (not that my best friend didn't try, try & try again when she had a script!)...but methadone is sooooooooo bioavailable orally (I think over 95%!), that there is very little gained from injecting it anyway. Most of what I've read from people who had access to methadone ampules (ie., methadone made for injecting) said there wasn't a rush anyway, and that it didn't really kick in any faster either. So why poke yourself full of holes for no gain?
So, one could just dissolve the wafer in water then drink it, like the directions say, or they could dissolve it in some water, then get a medicine syringe (doesn't have a needle), turkey baster, nasal bulb syringe or enema bulb syringe & "inject" the mixture into the rectum. There are threads about "opium
enemas" if you want more info on that - it won't really increase the effects or onset all that much.
Just remember some things when it comes to methadone:
* It can take up to 2 hours to fully kick in, so wait 2 hours before redosing.
Some people feel it begin to work within 20 minutes, some take 90 minutes, but it takes about 2 hours (120 minutes!) to "hit" fully. Lots of people get into trouble because they don't feel it after 30 minutes and then redose.
* Methadone's euphoria
is different from more "traditional" opiates
Again, wait before redosing because you think you aren't "high enough"
* Methadone is pretty potent.
You don't need a lot of methadone, compared to oxycodone
or something. 20mg can kill an opiate
-naive adult. Start with 5mg & go up from there, SLOWLY.
Good luck! And again, methadone's really best taken orally. My best friend used to be prescribed them, and despite what I researched for her (at her request!), she continued to try to see if she could get "more" out of the pills by other Routes Of Administration
. In the end, she told me she decided to just take them orally, or occasionally do the enema route if her stomach was upset & she was worried about puking the pills back up before they were absorbed. Heh.
Sorry, don't know where I got the idea that SWIY was looking to inject, but the answers stand for smoking and snorting
as well. Snorting methadone HURTS LIKE HELL, and it doesn't get you high until the drip goes into your stomach ANYWAY.
