That’s a whole pile of BS!! What the heck are you doing? By lying to these poor folks (like me) all you do is make it worse! There’s no way to beat the liquid handcuffs period!

Finally someone who’s not afraid to tell it like it is.. been on methadone since I was a teen and now at mid life I’ve seen and heard it all.. there’s No way to Lose the weight besides getting off completely.. I mean there’s got to be an actual rhetorical reason (at the cellular level) but good luck getting that answer out of Big Pharmacy!! It’s all about the money and until some rich billionaire kid has to deal with this issue; we’re all screwed !! I do hope someday someone brave finds a TRUE answer and shuts up all these folks spewing lies about vitamins and stool softeners helping.. To date there’s no cure but don’t let that stop your research because all it takes is just one person to put in some true scientific research..
Good Luck and you’re so NOT alone!!!

Re: LiveLaughLove (# 60)

You’re crazy if you think that birth control has any cause in this diabolical situation we’re all in.. it’s the methadone that’s causing your problem just like the rest of us.. please don’t feel like I’m being hard on you but rather helping you to see the conspiracy in all of this.. trust me Big Pharmacy knows about this problem we have with mega weight gain but they’ll admitt it nor help with a REAL answer...

Re: Philip (# 48)

That’s such BS !! It’s just as Hard in guys as it is it for the gals.. sometimes worse !! Been on methadone more years if my life then not, so I’ve heard it all !! There’s got to be some cellular or molecular level of finding the route cause but “who’s going to help junkies”? Also Big Pharm I’m sure knows the real reason but makes too much money to ever reveal the answer. Doesn’t anybody understand we are all fish in a bowl here, and until somebody comes up with a true answer they’ll never be freedom from the mental pain. For those who truly believe there’s a vitamin or food regime to help with this.. you’re kidding yourself and fooling others. if there an answer it’s got to be at the molecular level and I can only hope that someday someone will provide Real Answers that actually offer help to both women and men.. because at the end of the day we are all humans suffering equally and drastically...

Re: fitch247 (# 187)


I'm just trying to process what I just read. It seems as if your behaviors are still the behaviors of your post opiate addiction. Selling your pills isn't what you should be doing. I'm not here to preach, I'm just saying life would be better if you got these behaviors out of the way. I understand the Klonopin as I have severe anxiety PTSD and seasonal affective disorder. I also understand the weight gain, but you will never ever repeat never lose the weight until you come down to a low dose in a low dose is not 120. 120 is what I was on and it was far too much for me so I decided to taper off. I'm not totally off yet, but I am halfway down to 60 mg and have lost 47 lb that is the only way you were going to lose the weight. I did that gym thing every day and I kept out at 10 lb lost. If you want your confidence and your life back I suggest coming down to a low dose but of course that is your decision to make. With your Klonopin I believe it is possible. S*** I believe anything is possible, you can do anything you really believe.

Re: fitch247 (# 187)

Holy cow.... I'm sorry but if you take a downer with another downer and an upper, you are just going to kill yourself. You should maybe look into a treatment program with good results with all the good money u make from your adds. I don't mean to sound rude or whatever I might sound like right now, but I felt like I was on a rollercoaster drug ride rather than reading about someone who really wants to be done and healthy again. I'm just saying..... you don't need ALL THAT to get the results you are looking for. You just want 'quick and feel better' but that's not the right way.

Re: SAH (# 200)

That's because it really won't help. I spent so many early mornings before work busting my butt at the gym and capped out at 10 lbs after months of hard work.

Re: BARBIE (# 9)

ive been reading everyone's postings and ur the only one who spoke of exercise. I've been on methadone for 4 yrs almost and I've gained I think 60 to 80 pounds. Right now I can't come off the methadone cuz I'm too fragile to relapse into pills again. I wanted to know what exercises u do, which help the best for weight loss. I heard swimming is good. I also have unbelievable swelling.

Vitadone the name of the vitamin to help is called vitadone, or nutridone. But vitadone is the better of the two.

Just a hopeful update for some of the women talking about the weight gain. I was at 120 of liquid daily and have slowly tapered to 50 without feeling a thing. I have however dropped 40 lbs already without even trying! It's amazing. Barely any sugar cravings, but the hot flashes and sweating are still awful. Having confidence back is so great!!!

What about sweat ? I have never been one to sweat and it has only got worse. I have been on methadone for 3 years. I just started taking vitadone three days ago , was wondering if anyone knows if this will help me. I have a lot more energy and I'm sleeping better my only complaint is I feel like crap the next morning..

Your uneducated comment was neither helpful or warranted. Methadone saved my life and now I'm more than halfway through with my taper. I put myself back in school after the loss of my fiance and delightful little girls father. I now work in harm reduction and have helped so many people with medication assisted treatment. Obviously you don't know much because these medications are the new wave of treatment. Just as insulin is to a diabetic. Do some reading. Otherwise, stay off a page where people are looking for hope, not a$$holes. Have fun in your little box, but I suggest coming out of it. Addiction is a scientifically proven disease and there's plenty you can read or even watch, if need be.

Dodge Says:

Are you kidding, methadone is a drug that is very addictive. Lie to yourself if you want to but I'm sorry you're not drug free. All you have done is substitute one drug for another one. If you don't believe me try quitting and watch how you withdraw.
