Day 2 without the methadone. Wow, was i right the about sleep thing. I havnt felt the crawling up the wall, batshit crazy feeling in a long time. Last night sucked ass. I finally took 1/4 of a clonidine last night with melatonin, to help me fall asleep. It worked really well. The problem came about 4 hrs after that i woke up screaming on the inside, with that nasty feeling. I was doing the fish flop for a while...now im not allowed to sleep in the bed anymore. I took another 1/4 of clonidine then passed out in the floor. I cant bitch about that too bad because total sleep was still over 6 hrs. I just despise that feeling.
My body must metabolize methadone fast because since i got below 10mg, i swear i feel the adjustment on the afternoon of day 2. Then i cant sleep . Then day 3 is the worst, day 4 is still crappy but better. It feels a little worse than the jump from 10 to 5 mg. But it still seems its following the same pattern now. I didnt have that screaming on the inside feeling all day, good. I sneezed my ass off all afternoon. No desire to eat all day, but i ate a little to take my vitamins. Cold chills all day, got my feet on the heating pad right now. I feel my MS symptoms might have been masked by the methadone or at least lessoned by it. My tremors have normally been light in my hands but now every muscle i move is shaking. I hope it tones back down because id look like a tweeker out in public. Even when i take a deep breath to yawn, my diaphragm vibrates. Fair amount of energy early in the day wasted from malaise. When i forced myself up, i had more energy than i felt i would. I feel the pains in my legs coming back so i know its gonna be a hell of a night and a worse of a day 3. Ive been thinking of eating a shitload of vitamin c because i read it speeds up the metabolism of methadone. Anybody heard of using it during detox like a weak naltrexone? Time to board the pain train or run in the pain marathon. Still in a good place mentally.
