Hello my name is Mark, I too am on the infamous controversial drug known as methadone lol. It somewhat sounds like me and you are a lil bit alike btw, as far as the way we feel towards methadone etc, in my case I have a wife and also 5, yes 5 kids lol, and just as you said I'm also sick of the damn every second of every day worry of do I have methadone to get thru the day do I have any for the next day etc etc, one difference tho I guess is I go to a clinic and get 6 take homes a week. But to be a lil honest per se with 5 kids and a wife and neither of us working money is tight to say the least. So needless to say I have to let go of some to have food and other necessary requirements sometimes, and therefore end up going without sometimes. Anyway I guess that's enough back story about me for now lol, as for you like you said you know this isn't at all gonna be easy but at the same time since you've just been on 30 mg and haven't went any higher, which is an awesome decision lol, I personally don't think it's gonna be anywhere near as bad as it could be!! I say that not
To belittle your situation, but for one because I'm on 100 mg a day right now and I know others on even much more. So long story short in my opinion you can either A go like you're going to and fight it out cold Turkey, and take some natural stuff on the side to help you thru, or B and this would be my pick lol, take and since you've just been on 30 mg, two days after being without if you're able to come across these, get a couple I repeat just a couple ya know enough to last maybe say ten days max and no more, but grab a couple suboxene just to kinda step off; the done a lil easier than just stepping from the top of a 5 story building per se, like I said that's my opinion whereas I'm not a Dr. etc I just cold Turkey off of done no matter how high or low the dose doesn't very often at least end successful, not being negative just realistic, hope I've helped at least some, if ya need somebody to talk to etc I'm here you can add me if you like also
thanks for your advice and story mark, yea it's been a rough process, i havn't taken a single methadone since august 19th, n it's still pretty rough some days just no energy and weak, but for the most part the bad stuff is over, the only problem i'm having is i feel stuck, because the first week off i was taking a half of a 10mg lortab once or twice a day just to keep the edge off, but my problem the past week or two is im taking absolutely nothing and im pretty good for the most part but when it comes to trying to goto sleep at night i get this really anoying sensation in my legs n arms, people have told me it's probley "crazy legs" but they say its like a cramping feeling, which it is to a point but everyone i have talked to have never got it in their arms like i am, i dunno if it has to do with how strong methadone is but man it drives me absolutely crazy, n for the past week its not really been a crampy feeling its more like a urge in my arms like i got to move or get up out of bed cause i just feel like ripping off my arms and screaming lol and gets to the point to where i just take a half a pill just to get to sleep which can't happen anymore cause i wanna be completely clean off this stuff, i know what i am taking isnt even close to what i was taking but yea, i've done a lil research on it n i read you can take ib profen before u goto bed to help with crazy legs and tonight will be my first night trying that, but yea as for the methadone im done n over that, its just now trying to get completely back to normal being able to goto bed at night n not have to take that lil half of a vicodin, and i have tryed so hard but as soon as im about to fall asleep my arms go nuts, but yea if you get this type of feeling aswell when you go through withdrawls let me know if theres anything u know that can help it, thanks alot!!!
