  5. Can you die from methadone withdrawal?
Asked: 2018-01-30 04:34:18
At first methadone was the only option I had (due to being pregnant). Today the circumstances are different. I have done the 12-steps, I have been in recovery for a while now, and im no loner prego. The problem i keep running into is with the methadone clinic. I told them I wanted to get off and they just keep trying to give me more of it- this is really upsetting to me so I made up my mind and I am never going back to the clinic again. With all that considered I dont know what methadone withdrawal consists of.. can you die from methadone withdrawal? Can I die from this or will I be okay?

There is really not a lot of proof of dieing from methadone withdraws, but honestly why not just taper yourself off of it, to avoid the withdraw symptoms.

Why test out the theory? The cold turkey withdraws have been linked to a couple of deaths in prison, and with cold turkey the withdraw can make you wish you were dead.
