I was on methadone for over a year.I went c/t off of 25 mgs 9 months ago. I started to have a problem with depression about a year into being on the methadone.I just became withdrawn,had no desire to do things anymore,just wanted to be at home and secluded from my family most of the time.I didn't know then but I know now that a lot of people say they begin to feel that way after being on methadone for a while.I dealt with some depression a few months into getting clean also,and I tried the 5 HTP that a lot of people here recommend,and that really helped me a lot.If I can ever help just shoot me a pm.Hang in there and keep posting..all the best...Kim
