Synthetic Man Made Narcotic
Methadone is a synthetic man-made narcotic known in chemical terms as Methadone HCL Intensol. The euphoric high that is created in the brain is because the brain secretes lot of neurotransmitters that signal pleasure, which is a reason for the euphoric high. The neurotransmitters do not get back to normal if you have been taking this drug for a very long time. The longer one has been taking opioid drugs like heroin, the longer will the Euphoria last and they will be out of touch from the real-time world. When the drug on which the patient is dependent on is withdrawn, it leads to withdrawal symptoms. Withdrawal symptoms are adaptive mechanisms expressed by the body. It is just the body adjusting itself to normal circumstances.
