WOW, your answer was very depressing. everything i read said you start feeling flu-like symtoms after the 3rd day, and since i was wasnt on a high dose per day and was feeling fine--no withdrawal symtoms ( except a little lack of energy, slight mood change, and trouble sleeping, just you basic stuff but nothing horrible or undo-able) i thought i could handle it. you scared me into taking 30 miligrams, but i stopped again 2 days ago to see what day 5-7 are like. I will also incorporate exercise along with good diet into my detox. Are you sure there are no exceptions, isnt everybody different or is everybody doomed to the 5-7 day doomsday no questions asked you spoke of?
no, withdrawals don't usually kick in until day 5-7. If you weened down properly then you should be ok. If you just stopped then you are in for months of withdrawals and terrible back pain. Methadone is a lot different than morphine or heroin. There is not 5 day withdrawal with methadone..Good luck... Dave
