Hey there bluelighters,
I have heard a few bad things about the prolonged withdrawal caused by methadone cessation, but will withdrawal still last 2-3 weeks if the user has only been on the stuff for 8 days, as I have? I have been through opiate withdrawal before - I know that previous experience is a factor - and had been taking about 40mg/day, which is about what it takes to keep me completely opiated 24/7. To be honest I have never been through withdrawal after such a short stint with any opiate. Can you give me some idea of what to expect? Is the withdrawal from methadone just as prolonged from a small amount of use, and just less intense?
Many thanks in advance, all the best.
