With your age and BP issue , you should withdrawal very slow and careful but most importantly with your doctors assistance. Methadone withdrawal can be lengthy and stressful to your heart rate and BP, please do not attempt to do it without the proper medical care. Even when we treat patients in our hospital BP is one of our main concerns. Don’t rush and be safe. Have a happy and healthy new year.
my doctor dose not know anything about methadone. she said today that i wont have withdrals because im weening. i dont belive that.whats the fastest i can come down so far im ok. Can i go down 5mgs. every wk. or will i start feeling it then? my parents are helping pay for this. i quit my job big mistake unemloyment denied me because i quit. i have no income right now. mw folks i think there only gonna help me a few more months. i need to cut down as fast as i can without to much withdrals. or fast detox scares me. for non payment. with my high blood pressure that scares me. its high most of the time. i was suppose to get a angieogram. dont know if i spelled it right.i was scared to have it done. i tried to get medical help from public aid they denied me.so i dont know what im gonna do. The doc. took me off my metoprolol tarate 25mg today because im cold hands feet real drowsiness,dizzy,nausea hearing noises they come and go. i hope theres no rebound from not takeing it? my doc. says no but side effects says it dangerous to stop takeing.hopefully she is right. i also take nifediac,30mgs once a day,hydrochlorothlazide25mg.,once a day and hydrochlorothiazide25mgs. i take it 3 times a day. and also she said i shouldnt take it every day but i do so i can move my bowels miralax.i dont know if it safe to take every day. the other thing i dont understand is what you can take with methadone. and what you cant take with it . it says some bp meds arent safe. some people say its ok some not . doc. wants me to take potassium pills dont know if thats safe with methadone? o by the way i made a mistake i take hydralazine25mg
. 3 times a day. and hydrochlorothiazide 25mg. one time a day.so if you can give any input on this it would really be helpful. where is your pratice located? thank you again.
