I am currently doing a taper off of methadone and am looking for hints to make it easier. Please post all suggestions that have helped you. Maybe if we get enough information on here the mods will make it a "sticky" because I know it's a hot subject.
Foods and supplements that help or that should be avoided? For some reason I think about orange juice and chocolate.
Exercise. walking, yoga, swimming are some of the things I try.
Brain. What tricks do you have to keep your mind busy and off the symptoms?
Sleep. Withdrawal definitly disrupts your sleep patterns, how do you deal with it.
Dosing. If you are tapering, when are the best times to take your medicine and how do you time the reductions?
Other. I like to wash my face with hot water and it also feels good to put the hot washcloth on th back of my neck.
That's all I can think of for now. Please send any and all suggestions. We need help! Thanks.
