    hey ozzmosis, thanks for the advice. i had read similar warnings so i limited my methadone use to five days to try and avoid the exact problems u mentioned. I think it has worked, because although i have been having severe issues with sleep and RLS, the other symptoms have been roughly 30% the intensity of the last time i kicked completely cold turkey. The sleep thing is just bugging the hell out of me since if never had this specific problem in previous kicks. oh well, i guess thats what age does to you...

    right now im trying to finish up a report for work, but im getting double vision from sheer tiredness. On the positive side i thing im actually so tired right now that i'll be able to crash when im done, fingers crossed! (since im working from home).

    right now it is 58 hours since i last took any opiate. hoping that since i was on short acting opiates (oxycontin) and used the methadone for only a few days that today things will start to show improvement.

    I have never been a great sleeper, but it's definitely withdrawal related. Rls, irritability, racing thoughts
