God bless you and guide you in your new life! I was on methadone for 5 years and was tired of nodding off in front of everyone and being so dependent on such a drug. in other words if I had them I would take them.

I am fine except for the RLS. A year ago, I was on MS Contin 30mg twice daily and 15mg of oxycodone every 4 hours. Getting down to 3 vikes a day will be a miracle, but my receptors will keep down-regulating the longer that they are deprived and it will be possible. That’s 3 a day, but yesterday I had 8. Maybe I’ll contact my sleep specialist to get some benzos to help with that. He gave me a script for 90 Vicodin for me to taper off of. A few days ago I ripped of my fentanyl patch and went to my pain management doctor.
