Seek professional help and stop getting methadone from friends. Get to a methadone clinic and do this the right way. Methadone is a complicated drug and is totally different to detox off of then heroin. You need months and months to come off methadone properly and not days like heroin or morphine. This drug needs to be treated with respect or you can find yourself in the worst withdrawls you have ever experienced. Good luck....Dave
Sorry your question has gone unanswered for a while. Firstly you need to make sure that when you do start to reduce your dose of methadone you do it under the guidance of a specialist counsellor who will be able to help you with your withdrawal symptoms. Everyones experience of withdrawal is different and your counsellor will be able to give you accurate advice on what you can expect to experience and how your friends can help you.
In regard to your question about mg of methadone I need more details. What strength was the methadone liquid that you took the tablespoon from - the 120 mg makes no sense. Strengths availabe are 10mg/ml, 1mg/ml ,or 2mg/ml (1 tablespoon = 15ml )
