I have been om mmp for 2 yrs-I am at 102mg. Now mostly for financial reasons-but also side effects-sweating, weight gain, constipation, lack of sex life, lack of life period! I am very glad to be clean from herion for 2 years-but now I want my life back! I am sure the suboxen didn't work before because I didn't wait long enough! But I have never tried to switch from methadone! Just to detox from herion! Help!
I was on methadone and tapered to 30mls, then I switched to sub, tapered from that and I am now drug free, but it takes time and you do it at pace that you set. On methadone I put on weight, sweated like pig,and lived on laxatives. I had no interest in anything, including sex life. When I switched to sub I lost weight and I got my life back together.
hi cmharris,have you discussed this with your counselor? most clinics want you to lower your dose to 20-30mgs before switching over.so try lowering your meth first.as far as your sex life,love yourself before you try making love to any one else.try prunes and other dried fruit simmer in a small pot with water drink it twice a day.when you were on whatever drug got you to this point,you asked for help.for that i congratulate you. 2 years clean is amazing keep up all this work you have put into fighting this disease,but be patient.sobriety is a journey not a destination.my best advise to you is, slow down.but you are on the right path...
