I take about 150mgs of percocet30mgs a day and I want to know if I take methadone will it help with the withdrawl & shakes of the stopping the percocet dose every day..

I have used methadone to come off of percocets before, but it was at a way lower dose.. I know suboxtons are what is recomended but from what I'm told @ my dose methadone is stronger if I use it right

Well the main issue is that the Methadone itself is very addictive and you could end up trading one problem for another.

That is the reason that Suboxone has become the preferred addiction treatment option, because it has helped many more people become drug free, rather than have to stay on a lifetime maintenance dose of it, as happens with most people that use Methadone.

What has your doctor recommended?

yes, it will most def. help and personally i think its much better than suboxone. now with that said the methadone is very stong and you must be careful with how much you take and how long you take it for. i wouldnt recommend staying on it for more than 4 or 5 days and then just deal with the mild withdrawals or try some comfort meds. after for maybe 3 or 4 days. after that you should be feeling much much better and now you will have to learn how to stay clean and sober. to me that can be one of the toughest parts. but goodluck and i hope i have helped and i answered your question as best as i could.

how many milligrams of methadone and how many times a day would I need to use to avoid the withdrawals of having taken 60 milligrams of percocet for one year?
