Please !!! Can anyone anyone help me?? I've been on pain meds for over 20 years because of my back pain. I want to get off of them. I've been on morphine since 2009. Should I use methadone or not? Have any of you dealt with morphine withdrawal? I really need your help!

Been on methadone 3 years WORST decision I ever made cuz it is so hard to withdraw from Even if I miss 2 days dosing my legs kill me I don't sleep n the cold sweats soaking thru my clothes are the worst I would tell anyone to just stop taking pills cold Turkey cuz the detox from that is NOTHING compared methadone

I used methadone 5 years. I have not used or dosed in 1 year today. Yes methadone was extremely hard to kick for me after taking it for so long but, before i was on MM I used 10mg pills to come off OC. I never had a problem with that. If I could do it again I would never take the drug more than 1 week...if that.

So is there ANYBODY who knows anything about morphine withdrawal????? I'm pleading for information before I start the withdrawal. I don't want to go in blindly.
Yes you can get off short acting opiates. Ie; morphine, oxys, heroin... by doing a5day methadone detox...25 20 15 10 5.... but make sure you ready any symptoms..antihistamines for running nose, anti diahreal, something to help you sleep. While most p ppl don't suffer that much it real depends on the person. Find sorry group like a12 step program after.

I am currently on my 2nd week of a horrific miserable methadone detox..I was double dosing everyday (yes people sell it on the street).so 200 mg plus]I've nothing but respect for do what you did is ...well a miracle. I've been awake for a week straight after miserable day the sickness seems to get worse instead of better..I couldn't take it any longer and broke down and scored 12 suboxone 8mg..I took 1..felt nothing took more and bam!..withdrawal was basically I'm detoxing off of methadone..using the suboxone to ward off any withdrawal..but I have been through a lot of bad things and withdrawal cold turkey that takes balls!

I am currently detoxing from a 200 mg a day (double dosing.)..yea u can buy pretty much anything these days if u have the green.I was on it for 6 years..The last yr or so things started to change..I was getting panic t attacks
And just a emotionally hollow shell of who I was before getting hooked on methadone. So now I am trying to do it cold's been 33 days now and I am still suffering withdrawal from it..I couldn't handle another sleepless nite of hot an cold flashes..anxiety..and well you all know what it's like if your on this site..soo..I got 12 suboxone tabs I took 1 and waiting..nothing..took another1-hr later then my withdrawal did seem to subside..and I was able to move around again..It was a god send...but what I need advice for is how will this work if I take a suboxone when I start feeling the withdraw again or should I just try to ride out the rest without the sub..As I have heard it's very addictive and just as bad detoxify ing...anyone with answers pls ..I just want this to end.
