I’ve let my daughter move back in because she’s now on methadone and has kicked the pain meds. However, I’m concerned that she may be using again. Can you get high on pain pills whilst using methadone?

She can try, but it’s likely the methadone will block the feelings of euphoria so she won’t be able to get high.
If you’re using something like Oxy on methadone, you’re not going to get the same high as you do, cos the methadone will block it. You will get shallower breathing and a chance of choking, so it’s not great.
It is possible to get high, yes, but it’s not the same, and you’d need really high dosages. If she’s sweating or her breath is shallow, this could be a side effect of the methadone, as are hallucinations.
