had been on it for 2 yrs about a year ago i started bringing myself down from 90mg to 30 mg and that was what i stopped doseing at, it was my decision to get off the methadone, tired of being tied to a clinic everyday and tired of paying over 300 a month but now i know i wasnt ready to do this, i have been taking roxys but now am scared i will end up hooked on them, so any suggestions out there would be appreciated, thank you
I reported Dr. Yee to this site's administration. You have done very well bringing your dose down. I am currently in a mmt program. Its been 7 weeks now. Prior to the methadone I tried subutex, but it did nothing for my chronic pain so I had to switch. The methadone dose is only 85mg, so I am not yet getting much pain relief.
I think subutex/suboxone might work quite well for you. It did stop the cravings almost immediately. It took a few days to adjust to but unfortunately. I couldn't deal with the pain. Good Luck and God Bless. I added you as a friend so we can speak privately if you want to. Sable
