I was on over 100 mg methadone for 6 yrs and I know the rls is rough ....try walking although I know you’re weak still ,but walking and trying to jog a few steps as well because it will increase your bodies own natural painkillers and it really brought me on out of the rls....whatever you do don’t start taking anything! You’re almost there mine went on about 6-8 weeks
Let me just say YAY you!!! Way to go. RLS is a major pain in the booty but way to go with getting off methadone. I would give it a bit more time. I think for sure, not sleeping can make you feel crazy and off kilter. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5193169/ Restless leg happens about 13% of the time in detoxing users. Things that are supposed to help are exercise during the day, yoga, stretching, stockings, compression stockings, wrapping legs, weighted blankets (helps me a lot), trying a cold shower before bed, and you'll like this one, masturbate or have sex to orgasm. What about melatonin? 3mg works for me. I time it just right, take an hour before bed. It's non addicting, natural. I started at 1 mg and found 3 mg to work best for me.
I’m at 1 mg methadone now and have restless legs. Do you think Full spectrum CBD would work? I’ve been taking it in the morning but instead took it last night and slept like a baby for the first time in weeks!!! I’m hoping the CBD did help with my restless legs
I hear it can take up to 6 months, 12 years is slot of methadone , I weaned off on Percocets , one month only , I was good 8 years on meth , I feel good , but most Drs won't give an opiate to a methadone user , even if ur off , there afraid u will relapse , but tramadol is the weakest opiate made I don't understand why the could not give u a bottle , everyone is different what worked for me may not work for u , they sell a pill that's called restful legs it really works great and it's on pharmacy shelves 21$ for about 4-6 day use , depending on ur RLS . Also comes in PM Nightime sleep aide and restless legs , u will sleep at least 4 hours than u take it again u will go right back to sleep /
Lol. That’s Requip. Not re-clip
Ahhh, dreaded RLS. I’m gonna do my best to help you here because that is my most feared symptom during withdrawal. I’m sure you’ve already been told bananas. They work wonders. Warm baths. If you sit in a tub with warm water you will literally not feel your RLS whatsoever it is heaven sent. You have to keep the water warm though. Definitely look up the Thomas recipe that will help out as well. You’re able to find a doctor to prescribe you re-clip. That that is a wonder drug for RLS. It will completely remove it. However you’ll be really tired the next day. I felt like I had wait attached to my legs but I slept like a baby. Call gabapentin. That will help not as good as the Requip. I’ve been through methadone withdrawal quite a few times and every other withdraw there is I used to be a rockstar on this website haven’t been here for a while. If you need anything else don’t hesitate to ask
Did this go away? I'm on day 9 I was at 40mg for 6 years and I quit cold turkey. It's been tough as I have a month supply at a time. The rls is so bad I'm in tears bro, it won't stop. I've been trying kratom and a big powerfully massager that helps but its to loud and u can't sleep using it. Let me know if you found anything that worked?!
