I am a current opiate dependent. 62mg of methadone maintenance/day. I have been only wishing to get off of this stuff, just as everyone else. I am feeling very hopeful. Just a month ago, I asked my doc to give me adderall for my ADHD. I was diagnosed with this as a child and used to take adderall long ago and thru my 20's and no abuse. I have not taken adderall for about 10 yrs now. So, I begin taking it. The day I got my script, I forgot to take my methadone take home that morning and it was now 5pm and just taking my 30mg adderall. Within the hour I feel energized. Felt great, focus was good, cleaning house and all the stuff I use to do prior to becoming dependent. I realized at 7pm that I still had not taken my methadone. Alls good though. No pain, no worry. So I decided, I am not gonna take it til I feel bad. See how long this will go. Feeling an remaing hopeful, I am thinking this may be just my ticket to FREEDOM!! Could not sleep that night. Definitely from the adderall. But still felt great. By this time it has been well over 36 hours since last methadone dose. Yes, I am keeping in mind that I am a long time user, the long half life and a of that. Still remaining hopeful. Sun rises, just a few tweaks of sleep, coming upon 48 hours. Still feeling great!! Took my 2nd days dose of adderall, skipped the methadone again!! Went thru that whole day just fine!!! That was yesterday. Trouble sleeping again last night, but that's ok. It is now 2:43 pm on day 3, just passed the 72 hour mark with no methadone. Of course, still having it in my system.
So, in the past, before adderall, if I did not have my methadone at least by the 24 to 36 hour mark I would start to feel the withdraw. I am a very fast metabolizer.
So. I am wondering, remaining hopeful, that replacing the methadone with adderall (methamphetamine), if I will be able to slide by the withdraw symptoms of no methadone and just continue on my NORMAL dose of adderall?
Anyone had this experience before? Yes, I do realize that I am replacing one for the other. But I feel I would have better control and way less symptoms with the switch, IF this keeps going in my favor.
