I was on 100mg of Methadone and tappered down to 0mg by dropping 3mg a day. So, I went from 100mg to 0mg in about 30 days. I only made it 4 days and the W/D symptoms were too much physically and mentaly, Severe bone pain, insomnia, body hurt all over and could barely stand up or eat. So, 4 days of being on 0mg of methadone and no opiates, I went back to the clinic and asked to be put on 20mg only. I have been on 20mg for about two weeks and I still feel sick but nothing compared to 0mg. MY MAIN QUESTION IS: If I stop the methadone and switch to suboxone for a short taper will that help with the methadone withdrawals. Will it be easier than just coming off the Methadone slower or just pushing my limits to make it threw methadone w/d? I was thinking I could take 8mg for a week, then maby 6mg for 5 days and so on dropping a MG every 5 days until I get to 1mg. Then take slivers from there and start skipping days until I am out? Has anyone tried this? Did it work? Can a short term Suboxone detox help after a Methadone detox? Please any info would be so appreciated.
