i went into a medical facility and they used liquid methadone and within 5 days no withdrawal except for some sleepless nights and sweats I was detoxed and clean.I don't know what mg to start with and how to decrease it.Iam taking up to 6 30s a day anyone's help would be greatly appreciated
Are you saying you are on 6 30mg of oxcodone a day? That is a lot of pain med my friend, & I don't thing 10mg of methadone is going to do it, plus then you have to wean off of it too. I suggest a taper plan if this is what you are saying. You would need to cut your dose by 1/4 or 1/2 a pill a day for 5 to 7 days & keep doing this until you get completely off. This will take some time. I was on 150 mg of methadone for chrontic pain & it took me a long time to wean down to 10 mg to make a jump to hydorcodone 10mg every 6 hours. It didn't touch my pain & I am now at 15mg of oxycodone 6 times a day. I tried taking 2 one day because my pain level was so bad & got terribly sick to my stomach. Like I said that is a large dose, & as long as you have access, I believe the taper plan will work with little or no withdrawals. If you start having them , stay at that dose a little longer. I hope this has helped...
HELLO, I was also on oxy's, tapered down from 120mg to 60mg OXYCONTIN, (slow release of oxycodone). I went to a detox center , I am 63 years old and was I scared, I'm a grandma, mom and wife. They put me on a low protocol of methadone, I think I received 30mg in 2 days, It did help with the withdrawals, but the Methadone took me longer to detox from after I got home than the oxy;s, If I could do it over I would not take the methodone, withdrawals from meth. take longer , either way you need to suffer through some w/d's so I think don't take the methadone, just withdraw from the oxy's. People on the site told me that but I went to detox anyway. Withdrawals are HARD, why not try to shorten them..my opinion and from a little experience..luck to you, keep us posted.
