I went through detox with a little methadone, and by day 7 i still had no energy. I couldnt bear the pain anymore and went to my dr. He prescribed me the oxy's and of course I took 2 - 30mg. in a few days will I feel the terrible no energy again? RIght now its been almost 24 hours and I actually feel like i still have a little energy, or will I go through the terible detox again?
How are u feeling now? I am down to 15mgs of methadone 2x daily starting today. I hope and pray I make it. I am not a saint, I still sip my wine and have a couple of Corona's a day. Does that make me worse? I get so depressed about my problems. I guess a few folks do. Did u make it back to work and take the test? I am being nosey now.
Regarding your question, my guess is if u have a script, you will use it when u start feeling bad. (That is my personal experience) I hope not for u.. Hang in there... Kim
I hate to be nosy but it sounds like you guys are struggling with the same problem i am. and i really have no one to talk to that understands opiate addiction. i am on methadone 110mg a day from a behavioral clinic for heroin addiction. I also have serious back problems that started the opiate addictions with a doctor who will prescribe me medication i will most likely abuse. to answer the above question is yes you will still have to go through withdraw because you relapsed. it may not be as sever though if you had 7 days clean. do you all mind if i converse? also how long will it take to come down from 110mg methadone?
Hello to all of you. Just a little input & suggestion..First I will tell you my addiction was to oxy's, Kept it there thank god! So I may be out of my league here but there is a "recipe" called the Thomas Cocktail and of course I cant find it right now. But you can google it. Might help a little with energy. I know some of the ingredients are Tyrosine, and a lot of vitamin b complex. Both ovr counter. Wish you luck
I have been going threw the same crap. I have wrote to you before. And I am a teacher asst. And your so right about not being able to go to work feeling like crap. Because you cant just sit there when the kids are running around and wanting this or that. I have used H then methadone and the sub. And I am not trying to discourage you in any way but everytime I would stop and then reuse anything I would go right back into withdrawls. And have to start all over. I tried to write to you and let you know that but you might not have gotten it. And as far as some meds in different states they do have different rules for working in schools. Like my friend cant work at a school because she is on depression meds. they asked she said yes and they told her no. And it is a big no no to be on any narcotics. They will let vics pass sometimes. Just keep all your business to yourself. No one will find out unless you say something or someone else does.
You shouldnt have to take another drug test unless you get hurt at work or until the next yr starts. I really hope everything goes good for you. And God I hope you dont have to go threw that crap all over again. Im tryin really hard to get off of the sub myself. Which has the same wds as methadone and all that stuff. I was so pissed. I was on my 2nd day off of methadone and miserable and someone told me that if I took suboxone for 3 days I would be fine besides some cold sweats. Sounds sweet right. WRONG they didnt know what they were talking about. So I got screwed and those 2 days of hell were for nothing. Because now im sitting here in the same boat again. Miserable, crying and just wish this would go away. Anyway, I really do wish you the best of luck and I hope you get that job. And I'm really sorry this is so long guess i just got caught up in talking. I really do love getting on here and talking to people. All these people know how you are feeling. GOOD LUCK with everything.
