Hi, I am so sorry for your problems, any narcotic med that anyone has been for any lenght of time, you will go thru withdrawal.
I was on 140 10mg methadone pills a day. This was prescribed by my gp at the time. He got a new job in 2006, (Ihad been going to him for1998), Anyway he left me 3 written scripts so I had time to find a pm doc. The first doc I saw said not a chance I will prescribe that much for you, and he didnt. He prescribed 140 10mg for 1 month, thats a large cut believe me. I went through withdrawal for about 4-5 weeks, it was no where near as bad as having nothing, but it was very unpleasant.
So please go slow, it will help, and always under the care of your doctor, thats very important.
Good luck and take care of yourself,
