Methadone & Morphine Question

If you are taking Morphine for a couple of months and the doctor changes you to Methadone, will the Methadone prevent withdrawal symptoms normally experienced from stopping the Morphine?

Yes the Methadone will stop the withdrawal. That's what they use it for. I would like to tell you though Methadone has a withdrawal of it's own. It should be tapered off at a slow rate.
