just wondering if anyone has info on when to taper off 45mg methadone.. i asked dr to reduse 10% every 2 weeks and he said(why?) you will just go into withdrawal.Ive been on it 32 days.. he said u have to be on it for 2 or 3 months before tapering or i will go into severe withdrawals..i said so if i stay at 45mg for 2 or 3 months then taper slowly i wouldnt experience bad withdrawals and he said thats right..has anyone been through this before and could tell me if this is true or is the clinic trying to keep me there??   i feel great and thought i should start to taper off.. i went from 4 tylenol 3 every 4 hrs per day to methadome and i also have buldging discs L2345 which is why i started pain pills..any help would be great..
