Methadone Detox

I went from 40mg/ml methadone. 30 to 20 to 10 to 5 to 2.5 for the last 7 days. Herendous Upper Abdominal Pain to the point of feeling as if Labor pains started and I was bout to birth a new me. My waist went from a 26 to a 30. This Monday I am free 2 weeks. This was not by choice, 35 years ago I toyed with drugs. Not Today. I am asking how many Methadone rehab centers we need ?

SHAWN stated he had been on 2.5 for 7 days...  to go from 40 to 0 in seven days would cause SEVERE WITHDRAWALS. I think it's important for others who are reading and going through this to not be mislead.
Over the last 10 years I had been on upwards of 300 [email protected] of methadone. I decided 8 months ago to get my $hit together. I weaned down by ten mills UNTIL I hit [email protected] Then I only cut by 2 ***@**** 2 weeks. Then at 10 ..I cut buy 1mill every two weeks..until hitting 2. I then stabilized for a month. Then cut to 1 mill for 7 days then OFF. I AM ON DAY 5 & doing OK. I DID HAVE THE HOT/Cold flashes for the first 2 days. GI PROBLEMS for sure..IMMODUUM HELPS TONS! I do feel very weak...but not TOO BAD. I'm eating fine sleeping 3 hours with TRAZADONE ( I've always taken this and it's NON NARCOTIC).
I DID HAVE RLS during this process...but it seems to be dying off. Definitely irritable.. My senses are heightened..smell especially...and I'm coughing/gagging...Not fun But it's manageable! The key is SLOW& STEADY. Keep your eye on the prize! You can..CAN do it. It's so worth it!

Wow from 40 to 0 in 7. Get immodium. Make sure you ar staying hydrated. Eat the brat diet. Bananas, rice, apples and toast.
Move around as much as possible. Take hot baths with Epsom salts.
Drink Gatorade, water, boost,ensure, protein shakes.

You have been clean 2 weeks not by choice? Think of it as a blessing in disguise. Congrats on that clean time.

Keep on moving forward. There is a light at the end of the tunnel.
Time will be your healer.
