If I'm only taking about 10 to 20 mg of Meth. a day would it be easier to just taper off or would Suboxone or even something else be easier? I have been on Meth. for 4+ yrs., never more than 50mg a day, recently got down to 10mg a day (so far for about 21/2 days) and haven't felt too awful bad. I plan on trying to stay at 10mg a day for the next 2 weeks until I go to pain management. I just want to know what people with experience would do? I need to find out what type of plan the pain Dr. might suggest. I want to know what my best options are.

With the amount of methadone you are taking, I would slowly titrate down with your dose. Get and stay comfortable on each drop, then lower your dose again. If it becomes to unbearable, you might think about using Suboxone. If you take it nice and slow, and adjust to each dose, you should be alright. You are going to experience some discomfort either way. Steve
