Trying to squeeze the question in to the little box...when will I feel normal? My first day without methadone was last Tues....so today is SUnday....That is six days. I did not tell my doctor that I was going to another clinic for methadone, so although she thought I had weaned down to twenty, I actually had a buttload more of methadone in my system. 75 plus 20 to be exact. Originally I was at 75 plus 65. I had only gone two days with ONLY the 20 milligrams, and only 24 hours without anything....so I had HORRIBLE withdrawals and had to go back for her to give me emergency meds to counteract it. ANYWAY, I have since arrived to my sixth day. I am taking 4mg of suboxone, which I have not even taken today, because I am scared to. Yesterday when I took it I felt worse than I even do today with my withdrawals WITHOUT taking it. SO, my question is, does anyone have any experience with induction to suboxone where they felt worse taking it than without, in terms of the withdrawal effects? And if so, how long will I have to wait for it to feel normal again. I know that some say two weeks, but my first "push" was so bad I thought maybe that would have sped it up. And it did, to some degree, because my next time taking the suboxone I felt better, but still not normal.....Any takers?

MaryD we've got some great folks on here who made the switch from Methadone to Subs and hopefully they'll see this post and give you some advice. Stay strong, I think Subs will be a lot better for you. They have done wonders for me. I know the short term switch can be a pain, but know that happiness is just around the corner. I went from a Huge dose of Oxy to Subs and I had some initial challanges.


Stay strong and wait for some advice.
