I have come to this forum to document my detox from methadone. I have been opiate dependent since 2011, starting with an oxycontin habit. That turned into heroin, and hydromorphcontins, diluadid, whatever was available.
In 2014 I decided to move to a different city to get away from the drug use and dealers. Tried to go cold turkey but couldn't do it . So in June 2014 I went on MMT. I have been on it since then and am now down to 4mg from 40mg.
I all take home doses as I have been away from opiates other than methadone since 2015, and I really do not want to go back to that clinic and give them any more of my money come Tuesday.
Here is my detox plan:
I have 4 doses of 4mg each for the next 4 days. I have split them into halves, so now I have 8 2mg doses.
I took my 4mg dose Tues, yesterday and today (Thurs). The next 8 days I am going to take 2mg per day and on the 9th day I am going off of it. I will be documenting how it goes.
I am on a low dose and I feel like I am being a wimp about it. I am just scared.
Currently I feel okay from the dose drop this week, I went down from 5mg to 4mg on Tuesday. I have a lot of abdominal and muscle cramping, excessive sweating and yawning, diarrhea and twitching but it has been okay.
Dropping to 2mg tomorrow wish me luck!
