Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for using health care magic for posting your query.

I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.

However I would require a couple of more details to help you in answering your query in a better justified way.

1) how long have you been using Methadone
2) How much dose of subxone has been prescribed to you
3) what withdrawal symptoms do you have if you stop methadone

Hope to hear from you at your earliest convenience.

Regards and wish you good health,



Dr. Srikanth Reddy MD
