I came across the following post by a doctor who treats withdrawal cases such a Methadone users jumping off from as high as 150 Mg/day, which is an extremely high dose.

The following link contains some very detailed suggestions on nutrition, supplements, non-pharmaceutical sleep and anti-anxiety aids:

http://www.medhelp.org/tags/health_page/45/Addiction/Detox-and-Nutrition-for-Opiate-Methadone-Addicts?hp_id=55

I'm on day 8 of my Subs jump from a tiny dose of .15 mg/day, and I'm going to follow some the recommendations. This might be worth making into a sticky.

Thanks JI- this is the same site I found the "sauna' info and what to expect on each day, etc. I think I sited it as ".com" not ".org" by mistake.

Using a sauna for detoxing makes a lot of sense.

I notice I've been sweating out gobs of sh*t at night recently.

Wish I had seen the above link earlier on during my taper, I wonder how much easier my taper would have been using some of these recommendations.

Well, at least you are helping others, right? And that in turn helps you stay sober. :D
