Any women taking methadone for pain that have experianced female?

issues? I have not had a period and am lactating ever since I started on methadone. There is absolutely no way that I am pregnant. And the lactating is what really has me confused, my youngest child is 23 and I never breast fed. I will discuss this with my doctor Tuesday, I am just really interested in seeing if anyone else has experianced any of these symptoms. Thanx.

Answer:
f you experience any of the following serious side effects, stop taking methadone and seek emergency medical attention or contact your doctor immediately:

an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing; closing of the throat; swelling of the lips, tongue, or face; or hives);
difficulty breathing;
hallucinations or confusion;
chest pain;
fainting; or
loss of consciousness.
Other, less serious side effects may be more likely to occur. Continue to take methadone and talk to your doctor if you experience

anxiety, nervousness, or restlessness;
dizziness or lightheadedness;
nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea;
drowsiness;
decreased appetite;
dry mouth;
constipation;
weakness; or
sexual problems.
Methadone may be habit forming. Physical and/or psychological dependence can occur, and withdrawal effects are possible if the medication is stopped suddenly after prolonged or high-dose treatment. Do not stop taking methadone suddenly without first talking to your doctor if you have been taking it on a regular basis. Your healthcare provider may want to gradually reduce the dose.

Side effects other than those listed here may also occur. Talk to your doctor about any side effect that seems unusual or that is especially bothersome.

It seems that the afore mentioned "sexual" side effects may have something to do with your problem. I hope everything is ok for you.
