methadone withdrawal after short-term use
I did a trial of methadone (up to 5mg 3x day) over two months. After a week at 3x/day, I got so tired and depressed, I just wanted off it. So I tapered down to 5 mg over a couple of weeks and now have stopped cold. It's now day 5, and except for lingering tiredness and occasional flu-like feelings, it hasn't been too bad. Is that because I was on it for such a short time, or should I not be surprised if things get worse before they get better? I'm really not sure what to be prepared for or how long it will take before I feel more "normal".
