... my worst. I was reccomended to go on Methadone (oral liquid) by a doctor. I HIGHLY reccomend staying away from methadone & the methadose disks. The drug is nothing more than "liquid handcuffs". Also, when at the clinic, it seems as if the "Doctor" wants to keep raising your dose & keeping you on methadone (for money reasons obviously). Trust me..pursue Subaxone (sp?)... it may cost more but it is MUCH safer
I agrEE liquid handcuffs! Been trying to get off this crap forever. I don't have the strength nor the will power. To switch to sub I have to be on at LEAST 25mg mmt and not take my dose for about 3 days. Its going to be hell but I bet worth it in the end. Now only if I could do it. Easier said then done
you are right. I am on methadone and keep telling them I want off and the doctor says that I am not in good enough shape now for the withdraw. I am now on oxygen I am only 47. but I seen at least 4 more people coming in there on oxygen I am quitting on my own, but looking for some way to ease the withdraw. My son did not do to bad but felt sick for 1 month and then still ended up going back for suboxzone. I wish I would have done subs fom the beginning but I didn't think it would take away the sickness and cravings from 5 oxy 80 a day.I am going to try to just quit I will keep you posted if i find a easier way to withdraw without going back to opioates
