coming off 100 mg of methadone

Its been 4 days without my methadone. I have taking a very very few lortabs and xanax to help with the edge. I feel no pain from the methadone. People told me I would be highly sick coming off but I am not (yet). Am I wierd?

Hi!  No, I don't THINK you're weird! : )

Methadone has a really long half life, plus you are taking a narcotic and benzo, which are blocking the WDs.  Be very careful!  Benzos can bite ya!  Especially xanax.

Hello. maybe it is because you were at 100,a fairly high dose that the long half life has put off the w/d.And the Lortab should not do much because methadone will block out other opiates.
I am tapering and don't feel too bad,even at down to 6.Seems that every one is a little different.Watch you don't get into Lortabs,trying to get off the done.
Good luck/  karl

HI I dont want to throw a wrench in what your doing it is admirable but jumping off at 100ml is not recommended you should taper off methadone slowly if what your tring dosent work try a slow taper down to like 5ml then jumping wont be as sever good luck and I hope you plan works but I think you may have some difficulty coming you way.....Gnarly

Does the Dr. that advised to to stay at 90 have a financal interest in you being hooked?
I've been right where you're at. No human body has to have 90 mgs of methodone. Your doctor and your mind might might tell you that you do; but you've also got a soul. Listen to that! Get to 50 mg fast (two months) then take 7 months to get to 5 mg. And don't listen to that "doctor." And cut the crap, you're either goin' get CLEAN or you're not!
When you do go fao it, good luck and I'll say a prayer tonight for you to recieve all the help you need-when you do it.
