For me methadone is the way off opiates, I've done it twice. But everyone might react differently. I would drop 5mg every 4 or 5 days and I was fine but I never went over 35 or 45mg. I would just get myself stable. The last time I jumped off was at 5mg then next day did 30mg and was done. No WDs at all. I had lots of methadone 10mg pills. Hate the methadone clinics as they want you there forever. It's a business, their making money, and the longer you're there the better for them. Look, your either going to use or not. It's all up to you. We have a choice I know. I was big into coke. Hey I grew up in Miami in the 60s to now, so I say no more. I like boats and flying, get it. One day I said enough is enough. I think that last run I was up 18 days. No meetings, no in-patent. Said to myself and God I'm done. And I still am. The opiates started with back surgeries and chronic pain. Never took opiates till I was 45. Now 54 and the pain sucks and so does being a prisoner to opiates. Good luck everyone.

Yes!! I actually just talked to my Doctor this morning & she told me if you have a low immune system & are in a high dose it can effect your heart! I asked her how? She said " it can cause a heart arrhythmia"! Please see your doctor ASAP!!

I just want to put out there that Methadone has a lot of side effects. 1 being its causes Cardiac Arrest you can become toxic and your heart is taking a beating plus is takes all the calcium out of your body so ull start noticing that your teeth start cipping then breaking all together. The methadone clinics will never admit it but I'm on methadone and it's happened to me and tons of other people I know on my clinic. Plus when your ready to come off this you have to do it SLOW !!!or it's going to be hard and u may relapse! If you do it fast you'll feel it in ur bones. That is another thing the clinics call a mith but it's really true. The scariest thing to me is that it effect our health mostly our hearts and the higher you go up the more susceptible to cardiac arrest.

The noticeable symptoms would most likely including your starting to feel very dizzy, drowsy, fatigued and maybe like it's hard to breathe or get air.

Learn more overdose details here.

How long have you been taking it?

It may take a short while for it to really reach its full effect in your body, so increasing it without medical approval wouldn't be advisable.
