I have been on methadone maintenance program for about two and a half years now. I am tired of being tied down by it. I have read in countless forums that it is much easier to switch from methadone to suboxone to reach my final goal of being clean with the least amount of withdrawals. My dose is 50 mgs, for the first 2 years i was on 40. I would like to know what to expect in the transition. My clinic offer suboxone but they are hesitant to switch me b/c it would be a different part of the clinic.. I never once used heroin but my origional vice was oxy's.. but that doesnt matter. I have terrible constipation from the Methadone and taking lots of senokot and mirilax is also getting extremely annoying as it makes me feel sick but is the only way i can go. I am also terrified of the length of time it would take for the withdrawals to go away cold from methadone. I have researched the drug called Ibogaine and it seems to me a miracle plant but as luck would have it, it is only legal in Canada and Mexico..I live in the U.S. So my question. How sick am i going to feel if i lower my dose to 30 mg's then stop for 3-4 days to start the sub program. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.
