Greetings Christopher. Welcome to the forum.. Congrats on 5 days !! I hate to say but with methadone it is a long drawn battle You still have a ways to go The wd comes in waves so be prepared to slide back I do not say this to discourage you but to warn you It takes about 6 weeks but there are a lot of things you can do to make yourself feel better.. Gnary one of our community leaders is a expert in what to do for methadone wd He should be along for advice.. For now the energy crash is hard Force yourself to move as much as you can as your brain Needs to start to make its own feel good endorphin's.. Take a good Multi vitamin They also sell protein drinks packed full of vitamins and all the essentials it would not hurt to drink a few of these a day. Really try to force yourself to move as it will help.. Keep checking back as others will support and ask any questions you have, I wish you well and hope you have a Merry Christmas, lesa
It has been 3 days now since you have posted. Sorry for the delay, however at least 10356 caught this..How are you doing??
We have a few of us that came off of Methadone-plus. Hope you check back in. Methadone is NOT fun to detox either.
Hey Chris.....congrats for taking the jump your off to a great start detoxing from methadone is a tuff nut to crack but with time and perseverance it can be done I detoxed off a 7yr run at 150mg so at least you kept your dose low as for the energy crash it is the hardest part to overcome that and the lack of sleep makes it especially hard... from the tea time I gather your in Brittan get up to a health food store and pick up some whey protein shake mix it comes in a big can just one scoop to a glass of milk the chocolate flavor is good it will give you the raw protein for energy and a boat load of amino acids to heal the brain drink 2 a day it will help....with methadone it takes some time to get over it it took me a good 90 days to start to improve but I was on a lot higher dose then you just know with time it will get better you just got to go threw it exorcise helps also even if it is only a short walk around the block keep posting here you will get a lot of support...it has been a bit slow because of the holidays......Gnarly
