My husband was taking 4 wafers of methadone a day and when he wouldn't have those he'd take 7-10 xanax bars. He stopped taking both pretty abruptly about a week and a half ago. 3 days ago he took 4 yellow bars. About 2 days prior he took 3 footballs to try to help withdrawals a little. Around that time he started acting weird, kind of out of it. Now he's screaming crazy things, talking gibberish, saying weird stuff and repeating same thing over and over. Have any of you experienced this before?? He doesn't know my name, he knows himself, and the kids. He says he's hearing voices, he doesn't want me to touch him, calls me only babe and keeps talking about shaking, and seeing stuff. I need help, this has happened to him before and took him to the hospital and they couldn't do anything for him so sent him home. They did eeg, ekg, mri, everything came back normal, they said it was from withdrawals. I need help on how to make it better?? Last time it lasted like 2-3 weeks, kids are going to school and I'm the only one who works because he's disabled now from breaking his back a couple years ago. I can't leave kids with him obviously, but I'm worried to leave him by himself too. He told me after last time it was like he was in a different world with weird creatures and stuff.
