Need Help! - Methadone Withdrawal :( - Part 82

By natey7 · Jul 7, 2014 · ·
  1. Day 3:
    Severe time dilation. Change in moods. Bad nausea once again. Laziness is kicking in. Depression hit pretty hard today.

    Music somewhat helps to lift my mood. Having to keep myself more busy though. More emotions surfacing.

    From the last attempt at tapering off Valium I had to learn the hard way that no drug out there (legal or not), helps to ease a Benzodiazepine withdrawal, so I got that down now. Keeping sober throughout.

    I don't trust the equivalence charts online myself as the dosage of Clonazepam I'm at now (1.5mgs a day) feels severely similar to the 15mgs of Valium I was at a day.

    Also at the point where store bought sleeping pills don't work for me anymore, so I'm prescribed Seroquel for sleep (50mgs at night), which knocks me out like an elephant.
    The Seroquel does make things a bit more "dull" in the daytime afterwards due to its side-effects, but it's the only thing that works for sleep right now so I just accept it as it is (I am not a huge fan).

    I'm in slight Benzodiazepine withdrawal and the depression is most likely at it's peak right now from this weeks taper, but luckily it's Clonazpeam and the withdrawals aren't as long lasting as Valium (personally anyways).

    And pretty bad headaches, which Tylenol does a decent job for. Definitely have symptoms peaking today. General malaise. But it could be a hell of a lot worse.

    Day 4: Mood starts to level back to normal/semi-normal.
    End of day 4: SOO fuckin' exhausted and ready for sleep. This wean definitely hit hard (unexpectedly).

    Day 5: Exhausted, cranky, massive stomach cramps. Do not feel like doing much today. Definitely think I may have to stay on 1.5mgs for one more week rather than going down once a week like usual. Slow and steady is definitely the way to go if you're looking to get out.

    Day 6: Crazy highs and lows. From one extreme to another. A mild movement makes the tummy rumble, etc.

    Starting to hit the wall point of my Benzodiazepine taper. Having to wean down much slower now (rather than once a week), and let my body really catch up and fully adjust.

    Day 2 on 1mg of Clonazepam a day.
    I'm not going to lie... it's not an overall walk in the park (especially the first couple of days), but I know time will prevail.
    I guess at this point I'm starting to become more of a "just do it" type of guy.
