Detoxing, oxys, methadone, suboxone strips

Hello I'm male 35 and 185lbs been on oxys for a year then tried methadone and was hooked on a 100mlg methadone every day I could get it which was quite often but didn't take it steady every day but longest breaks would be 4-5 days tops till found more. Well I have been on methadone for last 4 years and ready to stop.. so finally I got courage to make it thru 8 days but first 3-4 were nothing but 5,6 got chills goose bumps uncontrollably and day 7 I was full blown sick as hell but cravings for methadone were long gone so I decided instead of going thru hell for next few months I got 5 8/2 suboxone strips and day.1 took half strip middle of day and felt very strange and sweats and just nasty feeling ever so took other half our later and same feeling. In bathroom all day and just cloudy headed as well so later that night I woke up sick as crap again so I took a full strip this time and that hit hard and thought I was going into prec withdrawals bad but only lasted about 20 mins and was OK and finally fell asleep after no sleep for last 4 days but woke up early covered In this nasty sweaty stuff.. I started to smell and feel again. So this time took half strip and showered still not feeling good few hrs later took other half. Still not feeling good like suppose too but dealt with it till later then took another half and same old crap and waited till bed time took another half. Well was having worse stomach ache ever and could eat nothing or sleep so took another half at like 3am and room some sleep aide and finally slept till 7am. Woke up feeling like hell again I couldn't stand the taste of the strips any more it kills my stomach and hate it so

Hello and welcome to EHF !

I went through your query and i understand your concern.Issues with opioid addiction are numerous and it takes alot of time to improve. You need to consult your addiction medicine expert to help you out. Also psychotherapy sessions, cognitive behavioral therapies and support groups help too.

Take care
