    Thats amazing. I was clean and a few days ago i jumped and went back onto methadone... it didnt do anythign for me as i thought it was.... i still feel the same way i did before it. I wish I had the determination as you. I went to NA meeting last saturday and i felt EXTREMELY awkward there.... at 35 days did you feel paranoid, and not functioning. It is one of the hardest things i've ever had to do

    Hello there I am brand new to this forum and I have a silly name because I got frustrated at every name I put in it said it was taken , LOL, I know your post is from Jan 2012 but I see you were on methadone and have been off it for awhile. I am currently on the evil drug myself. Two years ago I was at 130mgs , I started dropping my dose then, I am now at 34mgs , dropping 1 mg/week, not feeling great but not too bad. Would you be kind enough to respond to me and let me know of your experience with methadone, your dosage you were at , how you got off, if you tapered or did Suboxone ( which I am totally opposed to ) I am not sure how this forum works but I will look for a response from you, thank you so much.

    gamomma, thanks for responding! Would you mind telling me how you got off methadone. like how much and how fast did you taper? At my highest I was at 130mgs. that was over 2 years ago and I have been cutting down ever since, first I did 10mgs every 6 weeks then when I got to 50mgs I did 2mgs/week then at 39mgs I got sick and was in bed for 5 days! I let myself level off at that point then started going 1mg/week, I am now down to 31mgs/week. This is going to take me a long time but I am not interested in doing the Suboxone thing, that drug scares me more than methadone. Do you think that if I keep on tapering at this low level it will help with the wicked withdrawals? I know a lot of people jump off at too high a dose and some go cold turkey at too high a dose and they have wicked withdrawals, I am trying to prevent that. It makes sense to me that if I continue the way I am , that maybe my withdrawals won't be quite as bad, what do you think? I would really appreciate a response. Thanks, Gayle
