I am having terrible trouble getting my dosing right this pregnancy. I have just started split dosing where I have half my dose in the morning and the other half 12hrs later. My main problem is that I am still vomiting and have absolutely no energy until I have the other half late in the afternoon. I have no friends on the methadone program so I guess I want to hear from others who have been where I am and might have some advice to help me. I don't take any pregnancy supplements and am wondering if it might help me at all. I am so glad I found this site as it has helped me so far with the vomiting up my dose bit. Oh I am from Australia and I have noticed how different the dosings and cost are from other threads I have read so Im sorry if my wording causes confusion...
No confusion Hun ,) when u take your methadone it's at it's highest peak about 5 hours after u take it altho splitting the dose is prob good idea & your baby will b taking a bit too lol & good on u fr staying on your methadone x I think even if u weren't in treatment you'd be feeling like u are the little buggers taking what they need so your doing your job ;) maybe try ask doctor fr iron supplements etc they won't harm & may help I had very poorly pregnancy but had a very biG boy who's 16 now ;0 & having other little nippers to look after must b zapping your energy just try get bit rest in the middle of dose if u can & stop worrying I think your doing fine goodluck jx
Since you're pregnant and vomiting you should talk to your doctor about taking an anti-nausea and for sure some pregnancy supplements to make sure baby is getting what it needs. I had nasty morning sickness and it was sooo hard for me to eat anything, I was put on anti-nausea meds and it worked great! If you're unable to eat from the nausea this isn't good for either of you, defiantly adding to your lack of energy. Take care and hope you feel better soon.
