What can I do for my husband if he can't get his methadone for the next 3 days?

Hey scaredwife,

Methadone is a long acting med so he maybe won't have too much withdrawal although if he has to go without for a full three days he will probably have some. There isn't a whole lot you can do but try to make him comfortable. Why does he have to go without for three days, if I may ask?

You can have a few things on hand to help with any discomfort: Imodium for any diarrhea and tylenol for any cramping. He can take hot baths or showers to help alleviate any pain as well.

I wish I could recommend something better than a few over the counter remedies but he is just going to have to hang in there until he can get through the third day and get more methadone.

I'll be praying for him.
