usually folks get their dose down lower than 20 mg when detoxing from m-done.
Tapering on down to a few mgs would be a good idea
How long have u been on it?  Was ur highest dose 20 mgs?
Muscle relaxers can help with sleep and anxiety.  They r usually not habit forming if used as directed except soma ..the thomas recipe in the health pages can help a whole lot too.
good luck and keep posting

HI ...I agree with worried it would be best if you could taper down to around 5 mg/ml of methadone b/4 jumping ship 20 is high...it is doable but expect a ruff ride for the next 2 weeks followed by an energy crash that can last for quit some time....mussel relaxers can help with the cramping and mabe a little with the anxiety but 20mg/ml is a rather high dose to jump from we have had members do it and make it off but its never pritty we recently had a girl jump from 120ml and again it wasn't pritty but shes got over 30 days in now and is grinding out the post withdrawals...I applaud you for your courage today I got 300 days clean from it...it will be one of the best decisions of your life...just be ready to fight coming off methadone is never ez no mater how you do it...keep posting we will be here to help you all we can good luck and God bless.....Gnarly
