Methadone has traditionally been used to mitigate the effects of heroin withdrawal and act as a sort of ersatz heroin; however, recently more and more doctors have began to prescribe it to cancer patients and others with chronic pain as a cheap substitute for OxyContin or morphine.
While methadone is a powerful painkiller, and works admirably in that capacity, the list of adverse effects is very long. The most serious Methadone side effects can be fatal and they include:
Obviously, the most serious side effect of methadone (as it is with any other drug) is the possibility of overdose and death. The overdose often happens because of respiratory and cardiac reactions.
In 2006 the FDA issued a warning to the public and to medical professionals about the potential respiratory and cardiac damage. Additionally, a Black Box Warning was issued, and usual adult dosages are no longer recommended.

If the plaintiff in a Methadone lawsuit requires additional medical treatment, but does not have the means to finance said treatment, Anglo-American Legal Finance Group can provide the plaintiff with a medical expense advance to pay for the treatment while waiting for the dangerous drug settlement to be paid out in full. Additionally, medical treatment funding can provide additional evidence by which the dangerous drug case would be strengthened.
