yo mush,I was on methadone in 1993-1995. when i got off the clinic it seemed like forever till i felt.what your feeling is called post acute withdraw syndrome.and it was very real.after 6 months of not sleeping right,always having the runs and just feeling like shit.it takes a long time before you feel right.your gonna have good and bad days. but if you are still clean,try hard not to go back to that life.AA/NA meetings are a real good idea.for me the meetings were the only time i would feel better.so i went to as meny as i could find. if you ever wana just talk text me here i'll make u a friend right now, then we can send private messages back n forth.
The problem is that this drug has a tendancy to deposit itself in fatty tissue. The heavier you are, the long it takes to "leach" out of you. You are over the hump. PAWS can last weeks. A few tips here... get the following supplements ASAP: L-TYROSINE, L-THEANINE, 5HTP, METHIONINE, L-GLUTAMINE add Vitamin b6 to help your system metabolize these. These are amino acids that will promote neuro-healing. The faster your brain heals, the faster your PAWS dissapears. get you doc to Rx you clonidine at bedtime. We also use Baclofen 10-20 BID during the day. The drug is amazing in helping with everything associated with PAWS
