I just started methadone two weeks ago for opiate addiction! I was at 50mg but was unbearably tired. So I talked to the clinic and they dropped me down to 45mg and i am still tired maybe not as bad, but pretty close to what it was, I am afraid of going down any lower because i don't want to feel any part of withdrawals. Also they tell me that i wont feel withdrawals when they take me off of the methadone, is this true? or not true? Everything I read say you will have up to a month of withdrawals, longer than any other opiate.
I been on methadone 2 years and I sleep up to 16 hours a day still! I'm on 65.
I was As high As 75 but started to come down As I want to get off of it. When I started at my clinic I was told all kinds of lies now I'm stuck wishing I never started it! I don't want to scare you everyones experiance is different. I gained 90lbs and I sweat like a pig too!
