Discussions that mention methadone

Addiction & Recovery board


Cleanstart;
I find that interesting that the pharmacist would say such a thing, considering ALL
of us are different and our bodies are different.
I know that I could not do it on my own, so I went to the Dr. and got methadone treatment (I think you know my story?). But you see, I was up to over 20 hydros. a day.
I have also heard about people doing it themselves.
I think its rediculous that he told you what he did. That it would take 6mos or even a year to feel better? crap.
The older I get, the more I realize there are ignorant people in this world, even Dr.s
and pharmacists. I researched on the internet more about my methadone than my dr. even knew. He would give me false information.(wrong explanations for my side effects of the methadone, etc) He did not even know about online pharmacies ................
Hang in there and dont take this jerks advice.
You are doing wonderful.
Every day will get easier and easier I promise.
And 4 a day is "not a small dose"?
This guy sounds like a dumb ***.

I am glad that you are well.
My methadone dr lets me take 4 5mg valium a day and that helps.
I am trying to tackle smoking now. A few days ago I went 30 hrs
without one then I slipped, and in fact I slipped today too......................
geez
anyway hang in there and good luck.

Hey Jul my doctor suggested to take some valium throughout the month for some situational anxiety. I took 2 pills yesterday at 5mg and took one this morning. I don't feel any euphoria from it. It just kind of helps with the uptight feeling that I sometimes get since I stopped taking the vikes. Is Valium addictive? Is my dose high? Do I need to taper down? Just curious. I don't get that " I can't wait till my next dose feeling." Can this be a bad drug too?

Let me know.
