Hi.....well I got the headackes also and there real mindbenders just know with time they do go away the main symptoms that hung on the longest where the ''energy crash'' and the lack of sleep I thought I would go mad....it took a good 2 months to even start to get sleep just know all this agony you go threw is so so worth it in the end keep posting for support we have a lot of x/methadonians for members we all know what your going threw and a big congrats on 12 days that is huge..........................................Gnarly.................................
Big Congrats on 12 days!
Pat yourself on the back.
Methadone was my worst detox ever, but I did it for 12 yrs or so, and jumped when I got down to 30mg, also with 2 other meds added to the mess.
Just know it will take Time for all of this to adjust back. Their are many Brain Chems that are highly affected my these types of meds..So just give it time, as the Brain will have to balance out and fire back up..Sorta Speaking!
The mental might come and go, but it soon will lift. It is not physical, so you do not feel much, but just Emotions you have not felt in a long time. Kind of like a Yo-Yo going up & down and back & forth.
The GOOD news is that YOU did taper. That will make it less intense and not so long. By tapering you gave your Brain/Body time to adjust. I sure will Pray that you will be lucky enough to bounce back quick..Keep checking in with us and stick around to Support others along the way.
Thanks for the advice, I'm still having these darn headaches! It's day 20.
Thanks for the advice, day 20- headaches still here but I'm never going back, to any drug, pills or methadone! Energy comes and goes. Can't wait till this lifts some!
Sorry to hear that you are still having those headaches. I had those for the first month and then they just came and went for awhile. It took awhile but not to long. I just knew it was my Brain trying to heal..Like I said, we really hit lots of Brain Transmitters, Receptors, Hormones and so on, when we use these types of drugs. It just takes time to heal right. Keep on pushing forward.
If they do go on, after 30 days then maybe go see the DR..I just bet it is due to the removal of these pills. I wish you the best and I Pray that this will go away soon.
How do you guys feel about Methadone treatment vs abstinence from Pills? I think I was trying to help myself with the Methadone but it basically got me addicted to synthetic heroine, which is worse to come off of than just the 4-5 days withdrawal of pills! I don't recommend it. I think of you can't quit pills, maybe rehab or try yourself- but stay away from Methadone. Any opinions?
Hi well im glad to here the headaches broke mine where mind benders energy will come and go methadone is very cyclic and just when you think you got it beat it comes back with a vengeance this takes perseverance and resolve but your doing great how are you sleeping??? anyways just know that all the agony you go threw will be so so worth it to be free from the liquid handcuffs
Wonderful news!!!!! Persevere!!!
