That will depend on your physicians recommendation. They can figure out your weight, your regular usage of opiates and start a particular dose and go from there. Most start at around 80mgs and raise/lower with close monitoring from your Dr. They like to see how you do in a 24 hr period and then level out your dose.

Is methadone safe to use to stop addiction of oxycodone?

Yes. Methadone is very effective in its treatment of opiate addiction and makes it more manageable. Methadone helps you function more and lasts much longer than oxycodone so you only have to take one dose a day to feel fine. It is important that you are under a doctors supervision when using methadone and that you do not start off taking too much. It is very dangerous when you take your first doses of methadone because it is so strong. And just because you have tolerance for oxycodone does not mean you will have tolerance for methadone.
