... sweating while i sleep and urinary retention. Luckily the urinary issue is passing i literally soaked my wife in urine while we slept on a few occasions becuase i couldnt empty my bladder while awake. my question is does anyone notice that if you go 24hours without taking methadone if everything smells terrible? And also one more: what is an indication that you are at a proper dose level? i'm at 100mg. and feel sick before i go to sleep yet wake up well... go figure and i get really drowsy 5-6 hours after dosing. i am wide awake when i feel the dose kick in tho morning... then later tired and a bit out of it. thanks:)
I have had sweats like crazy, but no urinary problems. If you can go 24 hours without taking methadone, why do you take it. That might be to personal. Sorry. I have been on it 5 yrs and am trying to slowly kick the habit. The only problem I have is I am a chronic pain suffer. And I am scared to death of withdrawls. I am slowly weening off. It does make me sleepy too if I don't stay active. Hope this helps. Kim
Wow, i am sorry no one has replied to you, figures, any question abut drugs/drug abuse, by drug addicts, are always ignored. you might need split dosing, and if you are getting dosed at a methadone clinic, you might be in for a big fight. I was on methadone, and i had the same problem, i would be SOO tired 4-5 hours after dosing, and by the night, i would be in deep withdrawel. Ask them to do a "Peak and trough" on you, which measures the amount of methadone in yur system over a 24 hour period. Some clinics flat out refuse tto do it, and will tell you it is all "in your head," but trust me, it is worth the fight. Oh, and that smell you are talking about, that is coming from your withdrawel, anytime your body is in withdrawel from opiates you have this sickly sour smell about you. Can i ask what you were using before getting on methadone?? Oh, the sweatig, get used to it, cause its part of it!
