I have been on methodone for 4 or 5 years due to chronic pain, I was taking 60mg a day but got cut back to 40 mg a day, I took my morning dose 4 days ago and one of my kittens knocked my bottle into the garbage and I could not find them I looked everywhere but the trash, now I have a week in a half before I can fill my prescription, and I haven't been able to sleep for 3 days now is the no sleep going to last the next 10 days?
Methadone can be pretty unforgiving and you will suffer those withdrawal effects until you get your next script. I would have emptied the trash out on the floor during my hunt.
Sorry and take care. :-(
I have been through it a few times in the last 7 or 8 years and the insomnia will usually last for 2 to 3 weeks for long term users. Other withdrawal symptoms last over 4 weeks I hear but I have never lasted that long without succumbing.
