Looking for any help with withdrawls from methadone

I’m wondering if there is a good vitamin to take to help me feel better as I’m trying to stop 20 mg of methadone of 15 years.. I’m going down 5 mg a month.

Hello & welcome. Happy for you that your doctor has agreed to a slower taper.
Did you get lower when you saw your doctor?
Do you take any vitamins or other medicine?

No I don’t take anything else. I’d like to take a good vitamin to help with withdrawals if there is any.
I do have Ativan but only as needed. I probably have taken 3 pills in a month but recently I notice I got more anxiety probably cuz of the tapering from methadone.
Magnesium & calcium help with muscle aches, restlessness & anxiety.
Taking an epsom salt bath is all excellent. Also limit caffeine & sugars.
Proteins , fresh veggies & fruits. You can also drink protein shakes.
Keep moving. Did you lower your dose?
