This is Dr. David
you should not cold turkey come off of methadone
this is a bad bad idea
why are you doing this
if you want to come off of methadone, you need a long slow taper schedule with your doctor to come off
if you go cold turkey, you can get bad withdraw symptoms, nausea vomiting, cramps, pains, anxiety, sweats and worse.
xanax is not the right help
you need a long slow taper
what dose are you taking of methadone before?
do you have other questions?
