Ya I messed up. Let stress get the better of me. Just wanted to b happy for awhile. Please someone let me no. Waiting on ur response!!! Il wait to take it til I hear from u. Thanx SO much!!!
First let me say, buying off the street is risky to say the least. Anyway, 10 mgs is a little as far as what you are use to. So don't worry about cutting in half. If you could tell me the first number in the type hydrocodone you have, whether it is 5mg, 7.5mg or 10 mg I could do the conversion for you and tell you what you need to take of the methadone. The second number (500mg or 750mg) is the amount of acetominophen in the pill. Just be aware the methadone is just as addictive as the hydrocodone. I would much prefer to help you taper off the hydrocodone than to help you get on the methadone especially without being under a doctor's care.
Methadone should NEVER be taken without medical supervision. One thing to know about Methadone is that it can depress the respiratory system LONG after the effects of the drug have worn off. If you take too much methadone or the wrong conversion (and methadone is difficult to convert and tables are often wrong) you could stop breathing. I would really encourage you to see a Dr to help you get off the opioids.
the best thing is go to your dr, if you were being prescribed these pills from your dr, then you should be able to tell him that your having withdrawls when not taking them,and ask he or she if he can taper you, most likely your dr will help out and give you some advice, dont buy on the steet, it is dangerous and will not stop. you can do this, dont be too hard on yourself, weve all been there, im tapering off percocet now, and i am more scared of the wds and anxiety and panic attacks then anything else, but comming here to this site will help you alot. keep comming back
