    Default Been off the meth for 8 days, its worse now than ever, is this normal?

    Hi guys what a great forum this is, where do I start? I have been on meth for 3 years ish but have been involved with opiats for 10 years or so, a few weeks ago I got a drug test at work (random) and failed:( they suspended me and I decided it would be a great opportunity to get clean especially as I'm getting married in Cyprus in August, I'm on my 8th day now and feel worse than ever I have no meds left aprt from 3 zopliclon, I fly to my wedding holiday in 3 weeks any ideas what stage I could be at by then?

    The only thing that will help is time away from all opiates. Nobody can give you an accurate read on how you are going to feel in 3 weeks. This all has to due to with age, general health, Methadone dose, lenght on Methadone etc.

    With Methadone's half-life days 5-15 will probably be the worst on average. Also, expect some "ups and downs" on this journey. What I mean is feeling better one day and then worse the next. Totally normal.

    You have a great start, keep it up!

    But consider this....
    You're going to be very tired, fatigued, restless, insomnia, and if you're lucky....you'll be able to have some great sex!!!!! Opiates kill the sex drive so coming off should help you on your honeymoon!
