So, I have experienced methadone wds, sub wds and H wds-
My questions is what everyone feels is WORSE???

I felt like subs stayed in my system a long time and thus made it very hard to come off of.
H was hell but only for about 4 days, then about a week of shakiness but METHADONE was by far the most intense.

What are good remedies for quitting any of the above?
B vitamins?
5 Hour energy? (has b vitamins)

I have been clean for almost a year. i am tapering off subs now.
The last time I came off subs, it was very painful.

someone else I knew said they switched BACK to H for a week and TAPERED with THAT-by decreasing small amounts IV'ed then stopped after a week, and said it actually HELPED.

Anybody have stories or experience?
Would love feedback.
Cheers to all!

this is a very good topic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In MY experience,,,,,,,, methadone was by FAR The worst for me, as well........
I actually never made it more than two weeks or so,,, without methadone, once I was on it daily.....
Even when I was pregnant, they tapered me down, and switched me to 10mg percs...... it was a hellova ride....
and the last two months I was pregnant,was the LONGEST I had been off methadone, since starting it two years before (or SO)
I did take "breaks" when I ran myself out and take dillaudid, and morphine....

AND, let me tell ya, it was NO FUN going from methadone, to suboxone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
wowsa!! I seriously felt mild w/d for about THREE MONTHS!! the first couple weeks, on suboxone, I still had RLS at night time,
well I guess during the day, too.
AND, the sweating,,,, ugghhh, the sweating,,, sucked.

with the suboxone, the fact that I can even TAKE it AS PERSCRIBED is huge for me.
and Ive gone without it, for about 8/9 days, due to cost/not having $$ to get my perscription out...... and ya know, if it had been methadone in the pharmacy, I would have done WHATEVER I needed to,,, to get the $$$$$

With the suboxone, I felt like I had the flu or something around day 5/6

and I KNOW ,
every single person's experience is different. i think everyone of these chemical makeups effect EACH ONE of us so
Dr. J says something like,,,
he's NEVER met an addict that COULD taper off oxys/dillaudid/whatever, but there IS a certain percentage that has been able
to taper off suboxone, and that's the HUGE difference.......
I know, that isn't correct to the word, but it's the basic jist!!!

this might be a good place to post one of his videos, on "tapering suboxone the right way"
or "suboxone withdrawls"

heres the link,,, to dr. J"s vidoes on youtube.... there's 19 total, and I'd say HALF are on tapering/withdrawl


anyone can give up,
its the easiest thing in the world to do, but to
hold it together, when everyone would understand if you fell apart
