detoxing

I have been taking both hydrocodone and oxycodone for 6-9 months. As much as I could get. Now I have legal prescriptions for them for pain in my back. I want to get off, and detox myself. Can I do this with methadone. I have about 50 of them and find that taking 1 when I wake up keeps me good until night, then I take a half of one, and a 2 mg xanax. Can i continue this for a week, then cut it down to a half in am and half in pm, then quit completely and use Darvon if needed to detox from the methadone?

You need to get with Dr and taper Xanax, you CANNOT quit Xanax CT. It can cause seizures. You are on a large dose and need a proper taper from Dr. if poss. Just FYI

Dont use methadone or sub to detox off of these drugs unless u see no other route....aftercare included
u r stepping up from the lil dogs to the big dogs from oxy/hydro to meth/sub..much more powerful narcotics and u can wind up in deep doo doo

Can u?  we r all different.  I could not.  If they were in my face..i was gonna take em...but u may be more disciplined than i.  the definition of addiction is loss of control over ur DOC...so tapering and controlling the very thing that controls u..is tough.

I am not sure of ur daily dose but CT is an option.  U can try ur plan and if u r abusing then flush em//it can be very empowering.  be safe with the xanax as xanax wd makes narc wd look like a picnic.  2 mgs is a large xanax dose btw...dont use anymore than u need..and flush them too when u r done if u can.

I am confused...at the end of ur post u mention methadone?  which narc is ur doc?  what is ur dose of methadone?  methaodne should be tapered due to wicked wds for some....hydro and oxy r not near as intense
