Dear Ponco,
Please get some medical assistance ASAP. Maybe you are taking too many blood pressure medication that could be VERY dangerous. If you are not being able to stay awake, your body is telling you something is wrong. Please look for help now.

You would not be overdosing on methadone if u werent at 80 sonething but  agree with above could be too many blood pressure meds , im on 25 ml was on 140  1.5 years ago and im wayyyy more tierd , havent taken any additional meds like blood pressure though, i am in a constant state of mild withdrawl (withdrawal) from except for about 12 hours after i take my dose then i slowly go back all over again i have no energy to even go to the washroom , im pregnant now so processing methadone quicker now then before so its still same time frame just more severe i havent gone d

thank you , the bloodpressure meds im on are metoprolol 12.5 two times a day. I break them in half. so im only takeing 25mgs a day of that one. and im takeing nifediac cc 30mgs once a day. thats all im takeing. my doctor thinks im tired from the methadone, so do you have any ideas what else can be causing it? I will be at 59mgs on my methadone this tues.im going down 5mgs a week from the clinic, also i dont know if im withdrawling or not. Im at 64mgs right now but i get nausea, pressure on my stomach like someone sitting on ya,cold,drousy it comes and goes. But every one ive talk to said my dose is to high for witdrawls? This cones and goes. Also my pulse will be in the 50s my doctor claims thats normal, i had her reduce some of my bloodpressure meds. because i was complaining about how low my blood pressure was 110/ 58, 115/ 62 readings in that area she said thats normal. so im confused.lately the bp is higher150/76 pulse 64  141/77 pulse 58 but she wants me to take hydralizine 25mgs i hope i spelled it right she wants me to take it if my bp is greater than 150/90 up to three times a day but i wont take it becausr im afraid my pulse or bp will drop to low.o sometimes when i get those issues nausea etc. i will get lightheaded to. so im hopeimg you will be able to help me? thank you ponco
