    Well, I know what it's like. Maybe you should read (the end of) this thread:
    https://drugs-forum.com/threads/28053
    I am currently tapering (again) as well.
    Swim ordered some kratom to see whether this will give some relieve once she is below 5 mgs of methadone, which she isn't just yet.
    I have used methadone/heroine for 20+ years so getting off this stuff is getting rather painful for Swim. Do it very, very slowly would be My advice anyway, once you go down too quickly the pain/discomfort gets unbearable for this swim and she doesn't succeed. A little valium helps too (not too much though since You wouldn't want another addiction). Good luck!
