I just started Methadone two weeks ago for opiate addiction! I was at 50mg but was unbareably tired. So i talked to the clinic and they dropped me down to 45mg and i am still tired maybe not as bad, but pretty close to what it was, I am affraid of going down any lower because i dont want to feel any part of withdrawls. Also they tell me that i wont feel withdrawls when they take me off of the methadone, is this true? or not true? Everything I read say you will have up to a month of withdrawls, longer than any other opiate.

I been on methadone 2 years and I sleep up to 16 hours a day still! I'm on 65.
I was As high As 75 but started to come down As I want to get off of it. When I started at my clinic I was told all kinds of lies now I'm stuck wishing I never started it! I don't want to scare you everyones experiance is different. I gained 90lbs and I sweat like a pig too!
