So you have been on the methadone for 2 weeks?  What mg did the dr start you at and what mg are you at now?

Give me a little more info, how long were you on the norcos, how long have you been on the methadone, when did you start to taper, do you want to go cold turkey or taper. Just know what ever you do we are here for you.  We will help you get thru.  Keep posting.  To answer to this post go to the end of the thread where it says post comment and answer there.  Let me know so I can try to help you
