Can methadone cause constipation? My Doctor upped my Methadone and cut my Oxycontin from 3 20mg a day to 2 15mg a day and changed my Methodone from 3 100mg tablets to 4 1/2 100 mg tablets. I have been on this change for about two weeks and during that time have been very constipated. What do you think?
