... detox off this altogther, is this dangerous to herself or her unborn child as she is on a reduction programme of 7mls per week
It is not necessarily dangerous, might be a little fast though. The rule of thumb for methadone detox is the slower the better. Best to confer with the obstetrician so she and the baby can be monitored.
Congratulations on the grandbaby and make sure she talks to the obstetrician about the detox plan.
