This question has also been asked and answered here: Methadone Withdrawal - Want to get off Methadone but wondering the best way?
Have you weened down??? You need to ween down no more than 10% every 4-6 weeks or you will suffer like you never suffered before.
Jumping off methadone is not like going through a week of sickness from morphine or heroin. You will suffer for months and months and have severe back and leg pains... Please, do it the right way or you will surely relapse..Good luck... Dave
Even if you ween down you still suffer from withdrawl symptoms try taking vitamin C it helps but you have to take alot of it also you won't be able to sleep if you have a doctor then ask him for (neurotin)i'm pretty sure thats spelled right ,anyways,that helps with the leg cramps and the sleeping problems the vitamin C helps with energy also lots of vitamin B try it...
