I understand completely wanting to keep that familiar drug feeling and was the major reason why my taper took as long as it did, but I was slow and steady until I had hit a period of time where my denial had become stronger and I found myself slowly moving up that tramadol ladder to Hell and it was after that slight relapse that I knew then that I had to take it back down again and then quickly go CT...my tapering period had served it's purpose and it was simply time to 'get off of the dope". No other choice for me at that time! You'll also know when you're ready, but don't let yourself rationalize into taking more, please reach out to someone first. These urges to regress are only temporary, like the passing clouds in the sky, so it's not really who you are or what you're all about! Trust your higher knowing.
Best of choices to you!
Hi spackle- I was put on .05 methadone 3 pills a day for the 1st week now im into the 2nd week of 2- .05 pills a day, i usually cut them in half when i take them. My other dr wants me to go on suboxone im not sure what to do about that though- but anyway my question is how long have u been on the meth and how high was ur dose and what did u take before. everyone keeps warning me about these pills but i have to say i cant see myself getting hooked on them i dont like them very much at all.
First off I am a bit confused. When you say .05 do you mean 5mg? I have never heard of a dosage of .05? I have been on 50mg a day for six years. I started on Lortab for 2 years before graduating to methadone. And yes, you can easily get hooked on methadone in just a few weeks. Why are you taking methadone?
Ok Im sorry I wasnt very clear lol, ur right i just looked at the bottle and its 5mg i thought i saw it .05 somewhere but mayb not, and my pain dr put me on that for a month to get me off norco, ive been taking norco 35/10 for 5 years I was up to between 6-8 pills a day for a while BUT i got in a bit of trouble and got pretty much down to the prescribed dose about 1 1/2 ago. I havent ran out of pills in a year, then i went down to 3 pills a day for a few weeks and then on the methadone. the first week of the methadone i took 3 pills a day and now this week its 2 pills a day and i think next week its 1 pill a day. ohh so ur dr didnt put u on the methadone to get u off the lortab OK i understand now geez my brain doesnt work very well these days lol. Does ur dr know u wanna come off the methadone??
