Discussions that mention methadone

Addiction & Recovery board

If I were you, I'd talk to a doctor. Having gone through withdrawal of methadone and heroin over 20 years ago, I can still remember vaguely what it was like - Cold turkey from the heroin produced Flu-like sypmtoms, extreme restlessness. I do remember that when I got off methadone, I did it very slowly over an extended period of time. Gradually reducing my intake, and I don't recall there being any bad withdrawal at all. The gradual method is used with just about anything. Good luck, and try some other natural methods for your pain. Karolyn
