  5. What are the symptoms of methadone withdrawal?
Asked: 2018-05-11 13:50:34
After getting into a bad car accident, I started using methadone to treat the pain. I feel like I no longer want to take it but am afraid to stop cold turkey. What symptoms will I experience when I start to detox methadone?

When detoxing from methadone, you will feel nauseous and have a headache. Your body will ache, and your muscles may have, but these symptoms typically only last a few days.

Methadone withdrawals are not as intense as the withdrawals that you would experience with other drugs. You will need to get plenty of sleep, may have diarrhea, and may notice that you are not able to sleep well for the first few days after you stop taking the drug.
