Methadone responsible for a disproportionate number of deaths

--compared to the number of prescriptions written, according to a poster presentation at the American Academy of Pain Medicine 26th Annual Meeting.

METHADONE itself is not RESPONSIBLE for the deaths. It is the ignorant people who chose to take methadone along with other medications or alcohol when they have been told you are not suppose to do that OR chose to take methadone illegally and they have no clue how potent it is.

Saying that methadone is responsible gives this valuable and beneficial medication a bad name that it doesn't deserve. Put the responsibility where it belongs! Back on the person who MISUSED it in the first place.
