    Default Prolonged Diarrhea

    Hey,

    SO yeah, I did make a previous thread about this but it didnt get much attention, and that was a bit ago and im still suffering. I cold turkey'd methadone on July 9th. 70mg, to 0. Its been extremely rough, to say the least. Some of the serious WD symptoms have gone away, but have also crept back over the last couple days. Im on week 5 sobriety, no done, pills, H, etc. One thing that has not stopped though, is the diarrhea. I know that its a no brainer that it happens when you detox, but as iv read, you shouldnt have it for more than 7-10 days. Did i possibly hurt my GIT during this detox? Should I see a doctor by now? It'll be 6 weeks on sunday, and sorry for the graphic detail, but its like im urninating lava outta my rear. Very uncomfortable.

    Thanks for any suggestions

    Dopesick ...... Doing what you did is totally dangerous stopping methadone abruptly at 70mg? It's no wonder you're still sick. I'm surprised you haven't ended up in the hospital. Yes even two months is not unbelieveable after jumping off cold at the dose you did it from. You're in my prayers. Let us know how it goes with the dr. I think going to the dr is a wise decision for what it's worth. After two months of diarrhea you are probably so dehydrated they will likely put you on fluids in a IV would be my first guess. God bless.

    I am not a dr. My statements are based on years of experience and related education. Consult with the professional of your choice regarding matters of concern.

    Robert,

    Thanks. Ya, i know the jump i did was kinda crazy, everybody told me i couldnt do it which made me want to do it even more. Didnt have time or funds to do a proper taper, so had to tough it out. I still feel like dirt. Just dont know if i can afford to miss work on top of having hella doctor bills if they do in fact think i need to be admitted. We'll see tomorrow. Thanks again sir,

    Dopesick
