i had been on methadon for 2yrs my dose was fluxuating between 80mgs and 90mgs for those two years i just recently got the courage to stop im too young and its taking my life away im on my 12th day cold turk and to be honest its been managable till now the cramps and pains are kicking my ass and oh yeah no sleep at all if im lucky maybe 4hrs per night, i have not thrown up i have no diahrria at all i can barley eat now crackers or soups its rough ... so what i need to know is how long will this process take before all my pain goes away, the physchological stuff can wait but i need a estimate on how long my body is gonna pushed to its boundaries any insight is appreciated thanks ppl for reading and responding...
It can be weeks to a month but no longer than that stay strong though you can do it the pay off is so worth it being free of any and all opiates. So keep trooping and fight the fight before you know it, it will be all over and you will have a great deal of accomplishment. Good luck and i will keep you in my prayers.
