I would wait for someone who has some experience with this before you make a decision. Hopefully gnarly will be on soon.
Hi David....well im glad you got the vitamins ....it takes a few days for them to start to work but they helped me a lot...keep in mind most clinex are only in it for the money and if they can scare you with withdrawal symptoms dropping 5mg at a time many will just stay on it...as for going to subs a few of our members have tryed this the problem with subs is you never know how your going to come off it....many jump and find it little or no problem ...others literally take it down to crumbs and go threw hell getting off it....sub is only second to methadone as far as hard withdrawals go...we will support what ever you decide....just know all the hell you go threw getting off it will be worth it....OOO by the way if you could stick to one post and just keep adding to it ...it will make it a lot ezer for us to keep answering you right now you have 3 posts going and I have answered all 3 but it is hard to keep track of....keep posting for support where here for you
Honestly i would just continue dropping down on the methadone. Either way you have to slay the dragon.
I jumped when I got down to 30mg with 2 other meds. You can just get off now and go through some w/ds or go down a bit more but very slowly. Stay with the drug you are tapering off of right now. Subs will have there own set of issues if you take them two long. They use Subs or Dones to help with Addiction and Withdraws. Both are very synthetic and have a longer life, so they take time to detox out of the system. Your Brain & Body Chemistry needs time to balance back as you go down and when you are completely off. The Amino-Acids are great for this 2. I took the Mag, Cal and D-3 at night to help sleep..However, you will still have some anxiety, sleep issues and so fourth. This will pass in TIME. Make sure you drink TONS of water. Try adding some lemon and maybe just a dash of sea-salt. This will help keep you hydrated. Go get some cheap powder called Airborne Immune system support. Eat healthy and try to stay away from 2 much sugar & caffeine. POSITIVE at all times and keep the MIND re-directed as much as possible. We have to groove a New Behavior in our Brain!!! PUSH-PUSH and PUSH...YOU will get to the other side. The WORK starts when we have to work on staying clean!! Keep the Support system going at all times. Good luck and God be with...
And gnarly, u really are helpful. Thank u
It seemed like i was getting more responses when i started a new thread...
Stuck at 35mg til i hear if they will agree to lowering me 2.5 at a time yet. I text-messages the owner of clinic and he replied it was up to the medical director... so i let them know I had contacted him with that question...
The vitamins are really upsetting my stomach, too..
Thank you so much. Im so disallusioned about it all
Soulscape thank you so much
