Methadone withdrawal- mental and physical problems

Alcohol and withdrawals is like a turd in a punch bowl!!!! Once I felt better I celebrated w/ a few drinks and it set me back days:( Sleep will be elusive for awhile...at least your normal sleep pattern. You can take Tylenol PM, antihistamines, Dramamine, melatonin. I would always take it then get in a hot bath and by the time I got out I was feeling sleepy. I could usually fall asleep but staying asleep was the hard part. Good Luck.....keep at it!  (Jul 21, 2013 | post #45201)

Methadone withdrawal- mental and physical problems

You can never tell how long its gonna last. My husband went 15 days w/o sleep but stopped w/o tapering at 125mg. You are going all the right things....so keep it up! You can do this! It will be glorious when its all over! Just keep telling yourself that you are doing something that many don't have the courage to even attempt!!!! Just know that each day might be a little different from the next and there is no quick fix.....slow and steady is the name of this game:) Good Luck and congrats on day 7!  (Jul 18, 2013 | post #45179)

Methadone withdrawal- mental and physical problems

BOB: Did you quit cold turkey? How long were you taking M? If so you are a miracle and probably the only person that has only had 3 days of withdrawls coming off CT. Glad it was so easy for you but unfortunatly that's simply not the case for everyone else. A slow taper is the way to go. Withdrawls are not just mental. They are physical symptoms that are truely painful and long lasting. For everyone else make it easy on yourself and taper slowly.  (Oct 22, 2012 | post #41454)

Hey AB: Nothing wrong with alter egos! Mine's called Miss Devistation! She's what comes out when someone backs me in a corner or I drink brown liquor! She is a ton of fun too bad I'm responsible for my actions these days and she doesn't get to come out and play...lol:)  (Oct 22, 2012 | post #41453)

AB: I 100% agree!!! For those out there that are unable or don't have a BP machine....here are some signs and symptoms of hypertensive crisis 180/110+: •Severe headache •Shortness of breath •Nosebleeds •Severe anxiety Many times there are no symptoms. Another way to monitor yourself is my checking your pulse for 1 full minute (follow your bone in your thumb to your wrist until you feel your pulse) Don't just count it but what does it feel like (normal, bounding, weak) Any major changes that you notice should be of concern  (Oct 19, 2012 | post #41406)

Don't know if these songs will be liked by all. Eating Pixie Sticks and am a little hyped and the tunes I'm listening to are kinda symbolic of a pixie stick buzz:) Flaming Lips http://youtu.be/Af pyoGFJNNE Cake http://youtu.be/Y6 j_0NGWT9Y Butthole Surfers http://youtu.be/dP H-vhpEnaI Primus http://youtu.be/aY DfwUJzYQg  (Oct 19, 2012 | post #1488)
