Yes! Thank u for remembering! I was just not handling the wdls at all . They told me if i made it to a stable dose, i would be cured. Now i hate it. I think i have broken the cycle of taking the pills and getting high.... i feel like ive been thru enough punishment going EVERY morning to dose. Never again. I should make the jump in january. Ive started an anti-depressant... thank you for encouragement... that it is doable.... thats what i need to hear
It will really hurt to come down from methadone. It stays with you so long. I never felt that sick,unhealthy, and unhappy ever. But you can do it. Trust me when I say the pain and suffering will end and life on the other side improves in time and eventually ya can move on. Head up! Eye on the prize :)
Isis 10mg per week slow enough?
Thanks-i just want it over with
I still say only tapper so far and for so long. Yes it's going to make it easier to kick in the end if you are doing less but the sad truth is that you are going to suffer. It is going to take everything you have to do this. Even at a very low level of opiates after a strong addiction it is still hard to stop completely. So you tell me. would you prefer to slowly suffer by not giving yourself enough to feel "OK" and prolong the withdrawal or just suffer for weeks and be done with the physical part? I only speak from my own experience when I say that I suffered so many times trying to regulate or "taper" my dose then just end up doing more again. It wasn't till I said no more. I will never do methadone again that it really worked. It was a month of physical torture and a lot more time before I could feel happiness and learning to live without it. I realize this is an old post but felt like I should explain myself. I hope you are doing well.
Hey Girl....how you doing??? did you jump yet???? any way please update us you have been doing great so far and that is huge....anyway let us know what is going on we really do care
Davidmel I was on oxy and Dilaudid for 2 years and methadone for about 2.5 years. I tried tapering many times and yes it does work to a point but you did comment that you just want it over. The only way to get there is to stop altogether. Make sure you have good supports and try to get your body as healthy as you can and do it. It's hard but possible. Good luck.
When I kicked it took a good 15-20 days to start to feel better. Lots of sleepless nights. It was torture but so worth it. I went at it that time with the attitude that I didn't care if it killed me I wasn't going to use ever again. I think that mind set and sticking to it is what made me sucessful this time. After a few months I was back to my old self. Now it seems so long ago and life is so much better.
