According to the literature you need to take at least 10 days between dosage reductions. Reducing dosage by no more than 20% every ten days is recommended. If you go any faster you may experience withdrawal symptoms and that includes the baby. I highly recommend you speak to your obstetrician before you undertake this as I do not know how far along you are in the pregnancy etc.
Please consult a professional before attempting to wean yourself off the methadone.
