> You need to rethink this.
> Here's what I'd do in your situation.
> Reduce the methadone as you feel able until you are down to 15mg/d.
> If you do this in (to begin with) 10mg increments you will feel bad for a few days or a week at most and then bounce back and feel better.
> As you get around 30, drop it in 5mg increments.
> People who switch from methadone to bupe generally do not do it over 15mg/d methadone. Some people find that bupe gives them problems like asthma.
> Forget about going cold turkey.
> If you want to give it up, just take less.
> That should keep you occupied.
> The sweating is terrible, isn't it?
> You could try psyllium for the constipation.

> Well, that's right.
> It took me 2 years to go from 2.5mg/d to zero methadone.
> I know that is not very encouraging.
> You would quite probably be able to go more quickly.
> Methadone? What are we to say about it?
> The industrial side of narcosis? Meanness on a grand scale? Too toxic for the Wehrmacht?
> I do think methadone withdrawal is in a class of its own.

When I started the Methadone I knew after a couple of weeks I could not go back. At 60mg a day after 5 months I still get tired and a wierd drugged feeling (Not a nice buzz). I am ready to wean back down like you mentioned but know I cannot quit completley for a long time and also wonder how people that end up encarerated for a lenth of time can take going through cold turkey. I don't know of any jails that have Methadone therapy.
