I was taking Oxycodone for about a year now on and off, I was on this message board and got alot of support. I starting taking the methadone to get off the oxys them started taking the oxys to sleep, i got up to aboput 500mg a day! on oxys! and 10-15 mg of methadone. THis weekend I said i have to kick the oxy's, and so i upped my methadone to about 30mg per day and stopped the oxy's. i guess my question is, did anyone ever go through though the same thing?
Something similar. My doctor took me off of oxycontin. I was taking more than the four 80mgs a day I was suppose to and he put me on methadone only. My husband took charge of giving me my meds, and I did quite well. I was taking 10mg of methadone four times a day,or one every 6 hours. I did very good on this dose. I did so good in fact after he trusted me enough to say I could be in charge, I actually got down to 10mgs a day of methadone only. I was so proud. Then I went on a trip to NYC and thought you know I could probably up my dose to 20mgs a day and guess what, now I am taking over 60mgs a day. I wasn't as strong as I thought. But never mind my story, you asked a question and the answer if yes. Quit the oxy's if that's what you and your doctor think will work for you. But take my advice and don't do both. Stick with the original plan and best of luck... k
First my friend please change your name on this site!!! You are not a looser!! You may be loosing this battle but the the entire war or you would not be asking for help honey. Any who... are you on the pill form of methadone or liquid? Is the methadone from a doctor or a clinic?? Give us more detail so we can give a more complete & detailed answer. I think the previous response was a good start but we need more info to really get you started sweetie! Good Health & God Bless ... Momma Nancy
