It really depends on how bad your withdrawals are and what you really want to do about it. Toughing it out would be the best option in Swims opinion.
thinks if you can ride them out without using other Opiates
than by all means do that. And maybe when you do finally get your dose of Methadone
it will be a little more euphoric and satisfying than usual.
But if the withdrawals get to the point of driving you insane and you absoltley can't handle it anymore than if you HAVE to take some OC than do that. But if you were going that route using a smaller kind of Opiate
(Codeine, etc.) to get you through that day would be more wise. In North America you can get T1's at any local pharmacy and just do a cold-water extraction on them.
Or maybe just smoke some Marijuana
for that day to help you a little, instead of resorting to that old nasty habit.
If you really want to quit Opiates than you shouldn't go back to them even if you have to suffer for one day. It just wouldn't be wise.
I would just wait it out and avoid giving yourself your DOC
Because the methadone is in your system you might not get as high from these things as you are expecting or they might not even work and it'll be a waste.
Swim has missed his dose before and just waited it out until the next day when Swim finally got his dose. It was more satisfying than usual as well.
Plus, one day isn't really too bad and isn't going to kill you.
And besides, the full effects of the withdrawals aren't even suposed to hit you until after three full days without the Methadone or so.
But it is your decision and your life.
I hope all goes well!
