Due to medical problems I have been on pain medication for at least 30 years, I am 60 at this time, 5 weeks ago had 2nd knee replacement, I have tried many times to get off Methadone, I usually run out before prescription is due and suffer severe w/d. Like everyone else I do not want to be tied to this drug, it is the worse, I have been on it about 5 years. I looked into Rapid Detox and was told it will not work for Methadone because it is stored in the fatty tissue of the body, I was told by the Doctor at the Clinic to use the Fentanyl 125 for two months, than the Rapid Detox can remove the Fentanyl. I have been off Methadone 130 for 18 days and with the Fentanyl I'm not having severe w/d, however I do have some, mostly extreme fatigue. I'm starting to freak out about the Rapid Detox, how pain will be managed, I have severe Osteoarthritis, and lots of other stuff. Would appreciate any information out there. I did read a lot on staying hydrated and nourished, any other advice?
