I took my last dose of methadone 2 weeks ago yesterday. I was on 60mg for 5 years and tapered off over 2 months. And it has not been fun to say the least. I thought the worst of it was over and went out last night. I had 2 drinks and shortly after my withdrawal symptoms came back with a vengeance. I felt like i was right back in the worst of it and had difficulty walking back to my car. Thankfully my friend drove me home. I've been reading a lot about methadone withdrawals since my methadone clinic didn't see a need to tell me anything before i detoxed off. I had a vague idea that the withdrawals would be longer than heroin but was never expecting this. My friend gave me a supplement/herb called Kratom which helped but there's not a lot of research on it so it scares me that Kratom might also be addictive. From everything I've read, I know I won't be normal again for months but I just wanna know how long until I can go out and have a few drinks without feeling terrible?
