So about a year ago I had a vicodin addiction. Spent a year on methadone going down. I started at 50 milligrams or so and tapered down to about a quarter of a milligram a day. I was planning on going down to an eighth of a milligram but my heart was tripping out a little and giving me little palpitations, or extra beats. Not sure what the terminology is but it was noticeable and annoying.
I ran across some percosets (7.5 mg oxycodone/325 acetaminophen) and started taking about a quarter of that pill a day for the last 4 days. I know I'm probably anal but I hate withdrawal symptoms.
Anyway two questions - if I drop that quarter pill do you think I'll need to expect any symptoms at this point? I certainly feel much better now that the methadone is out of my system. Should I expect those little heart flutters again? And is that common?
