what does severe methadone or methadose overdose have on the brain?

a drug store overdosed myself and my fiancée ten time the amount of methadose over 2 days because the woman was obviously new. it's when they switched from methadone to methadose. We were on 10 mg and she gave us 100 twice over the weekend. on Monday 2 ambulances showed up to take us to the hospital. They were amazed we were not in a coma but we had stop taking our dose for 3 days, which they also did not do. My memory is shot and so is my husbands. can someone tell us anything about methadone overdose log term symptoms. we were only 26 when this happened

Methadone and methadose are the same medication. Methadose  (40 mg and above) comes in wafers/tablets that can be broken in halves or quarters to reach the required dosage and can be dissolved in water before taking if needed.
Methadone tablets/liquid are taken whole.
