New to Methadone and Scared
I just started taking Methadone a couple of days ago due to an addiction to oxycodone.
I was taking about 15-30mg every 4 -6 hours a day for about 6-7 months (oxycodone). I can't afford it anymore and decided to get help.
I found a methadone clinic and decided to go.
They started me out at 20mg liquid no take homes.
As of right now I have take 20mg for two days and it didn't seem to last the 24 hours so they raised it to 30mg this morning.
I definitely felt this one, almost like I took an oxycodone that is lasting all day.
But, now I'm freaking out because all of the horror stories I have read.
It's now been 12 hours since I took it this morning and I'm still feeling it, almost like the peak has yet to let go. Fatigued, light headed, and a tad weak.
I'm afraid that 30mg was too much for me and now I'm afraid to go asleep afraid that I won't wake up.
Is there anyone out there with some experience with this that can give me some information? Should I go to the E.R? Should I just shut up and stop thinking about it? I'm really freaking out and need some input about it.
