... heroin but now im on methadone... can i get a benzo habit that quickly? ive heard yes and then ive heard no way! someone please tell me the right answer
Yes. Not only from the med, but the behavior as well. It's very easy to become dependent when we're already in that boat, if you know what I mean, and if you're on Methadone it's possible anything else you take will be enhanced. Stick to prescribed meds, their instructions and the program for the quickest road to wellness. Hope this helps.
Hello dmluvsjb31. My answer is no. This question, came up some time ago. It also goes along with how a person defines the word habit/addiction. The nature of the benzodiazepine family of drugs is either for sleep or anxiety. Off label uses vary, such as say Diazepam for pain. Two weeks cannot create a "habit" in regards to this family of drugs. Other perscription drugs such as Codeine for example, a person could develop a habit for within a short, or very short period of time. Regards, pledge
One Dr told me 4 months of daily use at high doses. Not sure I agree. I did however quit 4mg klonopin cold turkey when I was pregnant.
There have been documented reactions to the combination of methadone and various benzos as you probably know, usually in people who are not regular 'benzo users'.
Plus 2 weeks is plenty of time in which to decide that you like 'em, even love 'em if u kwim!
