I have been taking Methadone for about a year and a half now. The most I have ever gotten to was 60mg, but that was short-lived since I only stayed there for a couple weeks before starting to taper off. I got down to 35mg of Methadone after about 5 months of daily dosing. I was on 35mg for about 7 months before I decided I didn't want to be on any maintenance whatsoever anymore. Here's the story; I was a daily heroin user for about 4 years, before that I smoked percs (I know, stupid, stupid, stupid). I was faced with many charges, and then I was offered Drug Court, which I accepted. I bullshitted my way through DTC for a whole 3 months before I was incarcerated. I sat in one county jail for 4 days before I was transferred to another county jail for about two months, which was the extent of me sentence because I was finally able to go to a state funded rehab facility. The jail that I was at actually offered Methadone Maintenance, thank God. The kind Judge told me that my DTC counselor thought it necessary for me to start Methadone, and get to a "stable" dose before I was able to get out and go to rehab. A stable dose in jail is 30mg. They start you at 10mg, and by the time they start you, your symptoms are finally starting to waver. It took them 3 weeks to get me on the maintenance program, by that time I was finally starting to get sleep on my own, and I did everything I could to get to the 30mg mark so I could get the hell out of there. So here I am today, at 10mg of Methadone, and wondering what kind of withdrawal symptoms, if any, that I will experience. I have been tapering down 1mg a week since 20mg. Please advise!
