I've been taking 5mg of methadone once a day for about 2 years. Its not prescribed to me. I've tried to stop taking it before but I'm afraid of the withdrawal because I've heard its horrible. But I found out I have to take a drug test for school so I went down to taking 2.5mgs once a day and 2 days ago I stopped taking it completely. I'm worried its going to show up on the test and I wont be able to get into school. Does anyone know how long it might be detectable in a urine test for such a small dose?
Okay here is good news you dont have to panic anymore. Usually they do not look for methadone unless that person has suspicion or you are suppose to have it in your system. Especially if its like a simple 5 panel test and since this is school not the doctors office dont worry so much. However i do advise you stay off this junk it really is a waste of time and money. What kind of school do you go to that they drug test i never heard of such a school how horrible i couldnt go to a school like that. Anyhow good luck and hope this was helpful michelle.
Methadone stays in your system for quite a long time. That's why it's used to help addicts after they get wired to hard drugs like heroine and such. It has legs as the old saying goes.
You can count on 3 days anyway. Especially seeing you have been using everyday for so long.
I feel for you not being able to come off methadone. I'm on 100 mils a day now for 5 years. I was on 240 a day. Coming down from 240 to 100 mills was hell so I've been reluctant to try to come down because of that past experience.
I plan to find out about the Thomas recipe for withdrawal of opiates. It sounds like you might gain from finding out about it yourself.
