  5. What is methadone withdrawal like?
Asked: 2018-05-04 10:21:33
I’ve been on methadone for a few years now, I used it to come off heroin, but now I need to kick it too. What am I going to feel like?

Coming off methadone is like other opiates. You’ll have a lot of sweating, shakes, nausea and probably diarrhea. It can be hard to sleep, and you’ll be craving a fix. Taper down first as much as possible, and get someone to help you through.

It depends if you’ve been using it on prescription or not. The best way to come off is to taper down but withdrawing will be hard for about 10 days, but could last up to 3 weeks. Stay hydrated and be near the toilet at all times!
