Finally
Like i have said coming off methadone and was at 130mg and down to 22mg and now having a hard time.I did not go down any this week needed to give body a rest from all this.After only 15 day maybe have had 15 hours sleep. And today got almost 6 hours and have to say woke up sweaty but felt better and when i see the Dr again will go down 2mg and not 4 or 5 like i was doing. You people did say it takes time and go slow which i will now. Just wanted to share this.I still have a lot of things to deal with but might just be a little easier now. Thanks

good for you I've been on methadone for 2 yrs the  clinic told me that it was the best thing I could do for myself well.... I disagree I look at all the people there they have been going there for 5 10 even 20 yrs not ME! so I went cold turkey on 125mgs. NOT smart!!! but it's been 26 days now and after feeling like I was dying for about 11 of them and not one bit of sleep the whole time I am finally starting to get better everyday the chemical imbalance in my brain is still f -d up and I know everyones recovery is their own but I'm going crazy I can not wait to be back to normal so hang in there at least your trying to do it right way unlike my bull headed ***!!! one thing I can tell you is methadone stores in all parts of your body fat cells you name it so even after you quit taking it you will have withdraws not sure the extent since you are going down slow but I do hope they are not as bad as mine... and going to most drs for help either they don't know about methadone or they look at you like a drug addict!! good luck to you I hope everything works out please don't give up
