That is my experience so I try to stick with what I know. Addiction fucking sucks...THAT we can all agree on.
Subblind is correct about the Methadone sticking in your system...I was on methadone for 6 years PRIOR to 13 years on subs, so yes...shit is strong. Sub SUCKS for methadone quick tapering. I tried the exact thing prior to starting a sub maintenance regimen. I did a 2 week quick taper after methadone detox was making me consider suicide. I went cold turkey off of 40mg of methadone and lasted 3 weeks...I crawled to an addiction hospital for assistance. The sub quick taper worked great for the first week....until I had to taper as instructed. After taper concluded, I was RIGHT back to square one. Sick as a fucking dog and wanted to jump off a bridge. I ended up staying on Sub.
Staying on sub for longer period is not bad. It will stabilize your addiction and stop the roller coaster you seem to be on with benzos, kratom, subs, methadone. You really need to stabilize.....also curious about stomach issues that sub is causing you. Usually it's constipation based issues....
Stick around and we'll try to help you.
Nice to meet you,

Go to Walmart in the laxative aisle and buy this shit (no pun intended) called 'equate fiber powder'. It is sugar free and flavor free. U mix a couple tablespoons in your morning coffee (or whatever!). It is in a white/green container. It was a godsend. This goes for ALL YOU TAPERERS OUT THERE! It's basically the cheapy version of benefiber! Has to be the flavor free version!

You seem knowledgable about opiates but I'm not sure you are the same about what mentally happens after using LAO's, (long acting opiates.)
