... bitchy, can't sleep etc... how long will this last??
I too was on methodone for 5 years,the first 3-18 days are the worst,you must take vitamins and supplements and get plenty of exercise,even though you dont want too.Insomnia will be a bitch too,see if your doctor can prescribe a short supply of clonazapam and take them only as dirercted as they are a benzodiazapine and also can be addictive.I have been 3 months clean from this poison,and believe me there is light at the end of the tunnel,just stick with it,and set-your mind to it and you will do great.James Boles.
Yup. I keep getting told by my Dr.'s, "You will have to remain on this drug for life now." And I've tried for months to quit Methadone too every which way, but I found myself back on the needle shooting Oxycontin or Heroin. I didn't intend to go down this road niether but this is the result of the Oxycontin Manufacturers that lied to my Dr.'s & I by saying & advertising on TV that "the drug was safe, non-addicting, & lasts up to 12 hours between doses, so go ask your doctor for Oxycontin for your pain!" So I won't ever put blame on any doctor or drug for my Opioid Dependence, we were all lied to!
