Hi I am a newbie, I was on Methadone after trying over a hundred meds, the Dr said oh we forgot to try methadone, I think this was because my closer to home doc gave me Vicodin and he thought it would be better for my Liver? I was on it five years 20 mg and went off every three months and tried various meds? relly wild weird things this was 15 years ago then I moved away so the Dr mailed me scripts I was working and was up to 30 to 40 mg a day ( not a lot but I am 5'' and was 100 lbs. Then I heard of Lyrica for pain . Worse drug ever I was able to taper down to 10 mg a night of methadone . Went off the Lyrica after gaining 40 lbs that was two years ago. I was fibro free after Lyrica and decided no more methadone I tapered for 1 1/2 years and was off I thought... then the half life kicked in . I was freaking out. I didn't sleep for 4 days went on clonadine .5 every four hours couldn't do more than that or I would never move . After one month I was clean and tapering off the clonadine but two months later I lost my adrenals and have to take cortisone? My Drs assures me it was the stress of with drawl and my cortisol level is coming back and now I am tapering of cortizone. But I am hyper aroused when I should be immune compromised. I know it can be adrenals but am wondering has anyone had anything similar to this I am in hell.
