Short Term Methadone detox for heroin...Anyone?

Postby syd » Fri Jul 08, 2016 5:29 pm

I'm helping someone privately that wants to use methadone for the shortest time possible, to get thru heroin withdrawals.

They have 300mg of methadone. Can anyone who has done this suggest a starting dose?
The person is currently using close to a gram a day.

Thanks

Update;
Was just told that it's Methadose and it's 10 times stronger than regular methadone tabs.

They are in another country. I'm not if sure if this new methadone is available here in the US. Anyone heard of it?

Ok. Here is what they have.

Start by taking ONE...see what happens.i was on 50 mgs a day for pain and I would take them one at a time throughout the whole day and that's a hefty dose.if what they got is 10x stronger one or even half of one should keep them stable...the shit is powerful and long lasting so slow and easy with it.hope you have good luck...and I should also say I'm no expert,so you may want to ask a medical professional for advice...

Thanks for your input SB.

We are thinking of starting around 30-35mg & slowly titrating, with just enough to cover w/d.
He wants to keep this as short as possible and hoping 3 days will be enough.

The ones I was on we're 10 mgs.,not the liquid version you get at a clinic.30-35 mgs will keep them fairly neutral I'm sure.its some wicked powerful shit...wish them luck...

Same here. I had the diskettes.

If it's 10 x, 3ml of the super duper methadone would equal 30mg of the old stuff, right?

When I was on methadone for pain issues, I started tapering at 50mgs a day and got down to 30 in two months....no problem. So....that was ten mgs a month before I went to detox. They brought me down with the Sao juice in three weeks to nothing....and I kicked like an epileptic mule.

If 30-35 doesn't cover the H, don't go above 50. Ten mgs a month is fast but I didn't feel it. So...maybe 5-7 mgs per month and then slower under 20. I never had the chance to hit the notorious wall but it was coming at the rate I was tapering.

The peeps at the detox said I was going fast; they started me on a 30mg equivalent of Sao but added more two days after I got there.

Cheeps he only wants to use the methadone long enough to cover w/d. Since dope is so short acting, we are hoping 3 days will do.

I wish then I could remember what they did at that shitty detox in Wilmington. I had two guys that I talked to that we're coming down using the methadone. They had them on some phenobarbital too for the first to days.

Work in progress.
