I'm 25 years old and I've been on methadone going on 6 years, and I've had an opiate in my system for almost half my life. I was on 100mgs for almost 3 years, and for the past two years I've been decreasing my dose very slowly. Currently I am on 20mgs, and barely holding on.. I was fine until I got to 22mgs, but now I am having extreme stress and anxiety attacks. I have a lot of stress in my life anyways, but am finding it harder to deal with. It actually gets to the point where I cannot breathe and it becomes impossible to calm down. Right now I am smoking a little pot which is holding my sanity by a thread and is helping with some of the withdrawl symptoms. My hands shake all the time, my palms are always sweaty, i'm always cold, i haven't eaten in days, and I wake up at the crack of dawn. I feel like I did a line of coke! I saw a Reiki Master who specializes in herbs this past weekend who gave me an herbal mixture to drink everyday to help with my symptoms. I am trying to dive into this and believe it will work, but it's hard. I've tried walking, exercise ( the more I exercise now the sicker i get, so this is not an option), taking hott showers, yoga, deep breaths, valarian root, etc.. If anyone has any suggestions I haven't thought of, please let me know! Thanks!
