    No, definitely not.  For one thing, mixing the two will not provide additional pain relief.  Methadone works by attaching itself to the opioid receptors and not allowing other opioids, particularly morphine, to be effective.  That is why it is often used in drug rehab programs.  Also, taking them together can greatly increase the danger of an accidental overdose, which could be fatal.
