ive been using vicodin, mostly 10/325 norcos(up to 15 a day) and other opiate paikillers for a year. i did some hardcore tapering down to about 2 norcos a day or less if possible, split up into halves or so and taken over the course of the day, in about a bout a month and a half taking only minimal doses to avoid WD symptoms. im taking a three week vaca from work to deal with detoxing and was a bit off in my timing and ran out of vikes a few days before my vacation and a friend gave me 2 10mg methadones to help get through the last few days. i took one one day and then 1/2 the next evening and tossed the other 1/2. i had reffered to the thomas recipe for gettin off opiates and it said valium to help with sleep and other symptoms the first few days. but i also read that taking a benzo with methadone could force all the opiates out of my opiate receptors and start immediate bad WD sypmtoms. i havent had anything for three days and was wondering if its ok to take a 10 mg valium now to help me sleep and maybe quell some other symptoms. the posts a bit long but i figured yall should know EVERYTHING ive done just to be safe.
