I'm currently in prison, been taking methadone for about 6months 2 or 3 a day no more than 30 ml but I dicaided to quit because not the best thing to do in prison, ( I'm not even prescribed to it) it's been 3 days since I took my last one and honestly I'm not having any major WD , yeah of course I feel weak and uncomfortable but I still manage to eat and sleep so far, I just been reading other's post and most of em saying methadone WD takes weeks even months to feel normal, I don't wanna be stack in my cell for weeks and not be able to protect myself if needed, anybody knows how long does methadone WD takes, any suggestions will be appreciated...

Hello and welcome to EHF !


I went through your query and i understand your concern.After stopping it should not take more than a week for methadone to be completely out of your system . Request an addiction medicine expert and let them help you in this regard.



Take care
