I have been on methadone for a year and a half now. I gained about 20 lbs once I got on methadone, I probably needed to gain some of that weight cuz i was doing dope all day... I wasn't exactly healthy. But I would like to lose 10 lbs and fit into my cute clothes again. I too love fashion and designer jeans just don't look good with a big ass. I have always been thin, until methadone, I am not overweight but I am also not comfortable where I am at. I understand where you are coming from.

I have heard that lowering your dose will help. I am going to start lowering this week I hope. I am currently at 80 MG. I read a posting of someone who dropped 2.5 mg twice a week and was dropping weight easily. I also read that methadone causes a lot of water retention one person said they switched to suboxone and almost immediatley dropped 10 lbs probably of water weight. I do agree that I have definatley felt bloated all the time since being on methadone. I have thought of trying suboxone because you dont have to go to a clinic and you dont gain weight like the methadone. I started running about 3 weeks ago, and eating healthier, and I think I have gained and lost the same 3 pounds. Hopefully dropping my dose will help. Also I was going to get back on adderall, for my ADD, but I know in the past I've lost weight with the adderall. I have never taken it with methadone, does in not have the same effects? Anyway... good luck with your weight loss. I would look into suboxone, or trying dropping your dose. That's my plan I think. Good luck!

Amber I FEEL UR PAIN!! I'm on 200mg a day and gained 60 sloppy lbs. I weigh more than wen I was 9 mos prego! People say diet and exercise...that's BS it don't matter. Ur gonna hafta go down on mgs. I'm torn if I should do the same or just suck itup and be sober and fat. Bcc there is no option 4 me of getting off it id be rite bak to pawning my jewelry to stay unsick for the nite. I prob shouldn't put mdone down bc its an AMAZING drug. I just wish the weight gain wasn't so huge (no pun intended) good luck and don't worry ur not alone I too need the jaws of life to get in and out of my jeans.

to those of you who wrote im so greatful, im greatful for your time u gave to write to me , and im greatful im not the only one going through this... and i must say im greatful to be sober today.... so with that said, im scared to go down, ive always been one to go upp- and then go downnn, i dont know it seems im always trying second guess it like im never satisfied..... but many of the post i read recommended i drop down, so maybe i will very slowlyyyy, i was at 175 mgs and dropped down to 90 i went down 2 mgs twice a week and rite at 90 mgs started getting nausious and belly pain so the nurse stoped me and i havent tried going down again,.. some of the girls are only on like 25 mgs.... how do they do that???? i feel like i really need it... yes i am on adderall and it seems to not give the same effects when your on the methadone, and it doesnt help stop the eating or loose weight. so i hope everyone stays sober and healthy and looses all the weight they want.. and i just have to remember how methadone has saved my life, even with a few x-tra lbs....its really nice to know i have women like you , even though i cant see you........ peace.........amberleigh.....

Your story is sooo much like my own but i have great news for you as I posted on a different thread. I searched and searched and searched. I did every diet, worked out, ate right, I tried diet pills over the counter and then prescribed, I tried everything, no adderal did not work. Phentermine did not work. Acai berry did not work. I tried to find 1 person that lost weight on methadone, to no avail. And I am proud to report that I finally found a way. I was watching the news while doing crunches before bed one night and I saw a small segment on HCG. I did the research and decided I had nothing to lose. This is just the nutshell, I can help you if you need it but I dont even know if anyone reads this anymore so let me just tell you that 7 days ago i weighed 172 pounds. Day 7 (today) I weighed in at 157 pounds!!!! You can expect to lose anywhere from half pound to 3 pounds daily, yes daily. This is no gimmick. Its not a fad diet, in fact its been around for 60 years. I do not work for any company promoting this. I was just like you and nobody ever had any solution. After years of trying I was lucky enough to be watching the news and here I am. It works. Im living proof. Not only does it work but works fast. If anyone wants to talk about it just let me know. Yes there is hope!!!! :-D

mymichelle37, i would LOVE to know how you lost methadone weight gain. this is terrible, i am 50lbs heavier than ive ever been in my whole life. ive always been a size 0-2. i was literally a size 0 when i was 5 1/2 mths pregnet w/ my daughter! and i was on methadone then, but RIGHT after having my daughter by emergency c-section, i gained 30lbs literally in less than a month!! and i keep getting bigger, slowly, but i cant take it anymore. lowering my dose isnt helping either. ive tryed everything, even the anitdepressent welburtrin which is possibly going to be approved as a weight loss drug. HELP ME!! please!!

I have been on methadone for a year now and my weight is out of control! I have always been very small so my confidence is very low. I do not like to go outside of my home at all. I have 2 children so it is very hard for me to stay "out of sight". I was reading mymichelle37 has found a way to lose weight on methadone and I would love to know how. Like her, I have tried everything including prescription weight loss meds. I eat very healthy and jog 6 to 8 miles everyday and havent lost a pound! I have been exercising like this for 6 months straight! Please help!

Is that HCG in a pill form? I have the same problem I am on Methadone I started at 130 now I am up to 190. I can not stop the methadone I will just relapse and don't want to do that. but I do not want to be so fat if I do not do something now It will get so much out of control I will not be able to handle it at all..my face is fat my butt and hips are bigger than ever, I hate to even try on cloths, so anymore I mostly wear jogging pants. I hate it. I know the dr. at the methadone clinic said to me it slows your metabolism down so slow that it is very hard to loose weight.
