I started my journey on loritabs a low dose and have worked my way up the chain, now as I am trying to take my life back, Fear is very consuming, Will I be sick? Will I have the cravings I feel normally? Will the little voice thats in my head head that says " Take another you have plenty, your in pain" go away? Does anyone what I should expect?
I love methadone, i was on every drug known to man over the past 15yrs. I started it 1yr ago, and it's great, there is no high feeling so you don't feel like you need to take more, your not chasing the high. It works, without any funky feelings, it just takes care of the pain, you will get physically dependant, but most don't get addicted because there really is no feeling to get addicted to. Now i say this because people will tell you different, this is MY OPINION, nobody elses, everybody is different and effect's people in different ways, this is MY EXPERIENCE.
While I have taken methadone for pain, I have not taken it for opiate detox. None the less from what I read, it does relieve the opiate cravings while still allowing you to function. That being said, you will still have to tend to the mental piece not just the physical part. Methadone will help the physical, counseling will help the mental. It is a two part process in recovery.
I wish you the best and for more reading on methadone try:
While this article concentrates on heroin, the information is equally pertinent to other opiates. Hope this helps.
