How much methadone would it take to kill someone?

My gorgeous, amazing, incredible mother passed away Sunday from an accidental od of methadone (we believe). My world has been shattered. I am not sure how much she needed to take to carry over. She was seeking treatment to be clean for my wedding. That was going to be her gift to us... How can a clinic give a dose enough to kill her???????

Depends on someones height and weight. Some people can take 140mgs daily and feel nothing, while others may take that amount and be left foaming from the mouth, certainly ready to die. Ask the clinic how much they gave her. Certainly, if she was your kids grandmother, a grandparent can't be able to handle 140mgs, unless they are really strong enough physically and mentally. Sorry for your loss :(

Hello King !!!!
Hope you are well and happy today
Have you heard about Dozy and Waldorf (and others I may not know) ????
They even took down a question about Ask becoming a peanut gallery where all answers were civil and right on but comments got into the Dozy and questions and answers problems.
Then again you may be more aware of what happened than I
LoL

Hello Terra. I heard about it just abut an hour ago.
Very heartbreaking. That just pushed Ask to its limits. Two of our best answerers. It really won't be the same. Now, waldorff left before Dozy. If you want to reach Dozy, I'm giving everyone this link
http://dozyskaleidoscope.blogspot.com/
This is his blog. Comment on his latest story. comments don't show up right away but he will see them all. Maybe if enough people comment to him, he'll see he is really needed.

Terra, i'll see if I can stick around, but you need to stay too! Thanks for passing the link, it is very helpful. Comments take a while to be processed in. I submitted mine at least an hour ago and it hasn't showed up. You may have to subit it twice to get it to work.

Say....Post just anywhere or just literally on the latest
Sometimes I am not sure how things work in other places
LOL
Report as
On the latest. He might see it in other places too but try the latest, since he just put it up today (or yesterday in Australia). It's ok, we all try new things. Also, when you are just ready to put your comment in, type "~Terra" So he knows.

Terra if you're there, I didn't see your comment on Dozy's blog. You can check though, because he responded to me, and said some interesting things.

I saw your answer
It took time so maybe mine too
But they just took down another honest question !!!!!!
The other answerers didn't get it but I did and I answered
It was an honest question
Next we are going to have to pass IQ tests to be here in either capacity !!!!!!!
Which may clear up some problems but I think it will mostly clear out people me included !!!!!

I sent them e-mails again
Politely angry, maybe they will make the decision for me

What question?

It was roughly

I have a patient who is anxious about his wife coming home, how do I entertain him ?
Roughly

Most answers thought this was a Dr and the answers were slams
I know from having been a caregiver she was working with a new patient and needed suggestions

Now there is one up about someone wanting to know what to do in the bathtub cause he is bored ????

If that one stays....I will spend very little to zero time here.
