Hi i am looking for anyone that has sucessfully switched from a low dose of methadone to subxone for detox purposes only. I am down to 12 mg of methadone and have felt fine and still feel fine but from what i have read when you get down to 5 it becomes really hard so i was thinking about switching to subxone. I know when i was on 85 mg i missed the clinic one day and i had just started on methadone so didnt know much about it and i was really sick and had a subxone so i took it and within 15 min i was the sickest i have ever been in my life. It threw me into immediate withdrawl way worse then comin off dope. Just wondering if the case is the same when your on a lower dose. please write if you have any info.
