Hi folks, apologies if this has been asked/answered before, but I searched the site and couldn't find anything.
I'm starting MMT next week and have been told that:
a) I'll be on the lowest dose for at least the first week (20mg) and;
b) I should expect to suffer serious withdrawal and they fully expect my to use my DOC to deal with this.
Now this seems bass-ackwards to me, but it's the rules of the game up here in Ontario, Canada (it's a government-run program, need I say more?).
So, my question is, what can I do to deal with the inevitable withdrawal sickness without resorting to my DOC, benzos, alcohol or anything else that might be dangerous to combine with methadone?
