Discussions that mention methadone

Addiction & Recovery board

When I was withdrawing from vicodin, methadone, and neurontin, I had terrible panic attacks. they even put me in the hospital twice.

On a recommendation from my pain doc, I tried biofeedback. I thought is was a bunch of hooey, but it did help me out immensely. It also taught me how to settle myself down if I felt any anxiety begin to creep in.

If you are not familiar with biofeedback, all of your vitals and brain activity are monitored as you are taken through guided relaxation. You begin to recognize internal cues and how they relate to heart rate, breathing rate, etc. After a while you can begin to short circut these bad cues and keep your internal phsyiology quiet, leading to a quiet mind.
