Ahoy there tammy.. firstly being on methadone for only 15 months will work in your favour as far as withdrawals but coming off any drug be prepared to feel something unpleasant. Get them to do 1ml a fortnight which is 5mg see how you go on that, you didnt mention how many mg you are on but 5mg a fortnight or even a month if you can stretch it out the key is slower the better just like Laurie mentioned. In the land of Australia we can do 1/2ml 2.5mg, i dont know if you can do that where you are or even if its cost efficient for you. Im so glad and u should be too that you are getting tapered off this nightmare of a substance. I wish you all the best. You may feel anxious and easily irritated, insomnia and emotional nearing the end. Just know that it will pass, not straight away but it will pass.
