The topics of stigma, judgements and misinformation are nothing new when it comes to discussions on Methadone Maintenance Treatment. Methadone patients have long faced stigma from many different angles. Often times, misinformation and judgements go right along with it. But over my time as a Methadone patient, I've noticed that those judgements and bits of misinformation are not only coming from those unfamiliar with the treatment, but at times directly from within the MMT patient community itself.
We all have mouths, and I'm betting at one time or another, yours has probably felt dry. It happens to just about all of us from time to time. Yet some of us experience dryness in our mouths much more frequently than others, and to the point where it becomes problematic. Lets take a look at exactly what 'Dry Mouth' is, how it relates to Methadone, and my own attempts to fix the problem.
