Please stop methadone.
My son LJ died from taking methadone, xanax, and somas. All three of these drugs were prescribed by his doctor.
LJ was in jail for six weeks after being found driving on methadone. LJ got out of Jail on May 17th.
At 6pm on May 20th, LJ went to the doctor. The doctor upped his dose 10 more mg, one mg xanax, and somas.
That same night, LJ died. Those three drugs should not be combined.
I lost my son and my best friend. My heart aches for you everyday. I miss you LJ my son. All my love is with you.
