I have been on Methadone for a couple of years now. I have a pain dr. that believes in giving me a lot of medication because i have a lot of pain. I am at a very high dose. 140 mgs daily. I think I am ready to start weaning off of this stuff. but then i think, what about the pain? nothing has been cured yet. I've tried evrythig but surgery and that is the next step. I won't even go into my fears about the pain when i get that done. I'm on such a high dose and I think this is supposed to be the hardest thing to get off of. I am so scared! Has anyone else been in this situation? Please tell me what to do! I am having scary thoughts about what I will do if they just cut me off. Please help!
