Methadone detox

Have a question if anyone can help? I've been on methadone for abt 3 months (50mg a day). Today is my second day without dosing, trying the cold turkey method. Closest clinic is 50 miles away and I've run out of $. Not the only reason I'm quitting, but it's forced me to pull the trigger. I've been thru many heroin and oxy withdrawals but don't know what to expect with methadone. I've heard it's not as bad as coming off dope it just lasts longer. Anyone been thru it before? Just wondering how long I need to plan on being miserable. I'm well stocked on fluids and vitamins, I know this will help the process.
