Quitting Methadone cold turkey @ 100 mg's
My AS cannot afford his MMT program; so stopped on his own...he was on MMT for about 10 weeks or so..and started at 30mg and now is at 100mg...
his last dose was Sunday morning...It is Tuesday night...I thought he would be "dying" ....but...nope ...he is eating ,drinking,etc...c'mon...what's up?
I do know he smokes pot still...but that can take away all the WD symptoms???
Something I should be looking for??...I know his counselor called today from the clinic...
I refuse to help him pay for this ...and he is in debt up to his eyeballs....
Do you think he switched to pills?

I was on Methadone for my back and had a prescrition for it. You should be looking for signs like sweating, nausea, vomiting etc. Something is up. When I came off Methadone, I was taken off by my dr's and still had some W/D's. I don't get why he is breezing through unless he is on something else??????

I have just done a 50 hour methadone detox to go on to subutex (so i can do a quicker detox) and i have to say that i was ill i was aching and cold/sweating off my food not in good spirits really not sleeping , very irritable emotional sneezing and yawning where my eyes were watering and i was only on 18mls of methadone so he has got to be taking something Valium maybe?? as i do know people who have done a heroin or methadone detox and taken Valium i would ask him.

Something is very odd. If he was on methadone 100mg and quit cold turkey - he would experience severe opiate type withdrawal symptoms, sweating, nausea, vomiting, muscle aches, chills etc.
If he isn't - he is likely using some other opiate.
Opiates are very hard to kick !

i used to take 120-150 mg a day for pain management. but I abused it.
yea, hes taking something else, or noone else has mentioned,
he may not be in w/d YET.
methadone builds in your system, and if you take a high dose, yes 100mg is high,
it can actually take FOUR TO FIVE DAYS to get into actual withdrawl symptoms.
Just wanted to add that.
I could usually 'handle' bout 3 days before FREAKING out
Just my two cents
Just becuase I look back now and then, doesn't mean I'm going back

That brothas on SOMETHING else. Well, lemmie say this, I have gone to the methadone clinic on and off for ~8 years. The highest I ever went was 80mg. I've been going currently for around a year. Slowly detoxed down to 6mg. SIX, and I'm having fits with it. If you see me feeling good I'm on something. period, end of story.
