I've been on various pain meds since I was 21 due to a VERY serious car accident where I broke my back and did a lot of other damage to my body. I've moved up through SEVERAL meds over the years, and have NEVER been fully pain free, but at times able to live life fairly normally, others not so much! I've been on methadone for a few years now and was actually doing pretty great! Didn't completely take away my pain, but made life liveable and side effects were something I could handle. But due to issues it was causing with my heart my pain doc just switched me from 10 mg 3x day to 30 mg of morphene er 3 times day. It's only been a week, but I'm MISERABLE! In a GREAT deal of pain, haven't slept in days, not only from being uncomfortable, but from withdrawal (I don't sleep when experiencing withdrawal, no matter how exhausted my body just won't shut down) sweating like crazy even with air down to 55 in house and fan on me, nauseous and vomiting, and constant headache. I've been on the morphene for week and it's just getting worse, and I'm wondering how long will this last?!? I have a 5 month old daughter and a HIGHLY active 5 year old autistic son, so I can't be down dealing with this!!!

Methadone is very well known for causing horrible withdrawals, even when replaced with a different medication. According to NIH reports, it may take 4 to 6 weeks for things to start to improve, depending on your body chemistry.

How are you doing, now? Has there been any change?

It's actually getting better, though by no means completely gone. I'm still having serious issues sleeping, a LOT of pain and burning sensation in my arms. But I'm finally able to eat small amounts, so that's a big plus!!
