I'm on 145mg of methadone a day and I'm not gonna lie I kinda abuse the benzo's because I like how I feel wen mixing the two... help me will I become addicted to benzos? Or no because I'm on methadone. And is it bad for me?
Hey rhea ann ricci,
The methadone will not keep you from becoming addicted to the benzo's. The combo can be very bad for you as you can stop breathing given too much. You can not just stop the methadone or the benzo's though, you will have to wean off either one slowly over time. If you stop the benzo's abruptly without tapering, you can have seizures amongst other symptoms while stopping the methadone without tapering will send you into withdrawals as well. Please seek help with your addiction. You are playing with fire.
You will most definetly become addicted to benzos and from my own experience... benzos are far harder to get off than methadone!! once your taking benzos for more than a week... u will already b hooked.Benzos are a slippery slope to major mental health problems.seek help from ur doctor and try to quit sooner rather than later.if u think opiate withdrawel is hard u do not want to no wot benzo withdrawel feels like.good luck n take care.
