    Ang -

    I don't think you should mix the xanax with the methadone! Hopefully arlene will see this post and reitterate what i'm saying. I don't know that much about methadone, but i've heard mixing benzo's with it can be deadly!

    Some day i'll be myself again. I just have to reintroduce myself to that person.

    Besides that it creates a 'high' of sorts that may or may not keep you on the methadone crap possibly forever- and forever is a long f'n time.

    its day 3 and i am down to 1 meth pill.started out a few more than that on the first day! i dont plan on doing this for more than 5 days TOPS!! and i know about the zanaz and methadone, so im trying to stay away from that till after day 5. dont really know where the hell im going after day 5, maybe a halfway house, outpatient rehab...for sure some kind of meetings and stuff, i dont know, i know what i got coming but so far its been ok, surprisingly. i DO want this, and that makes a big difference. DO want my life back..i mean i lost everything..living on the street...the whole thing..all the bulls**t it comes sown to, i sure came down to, well thanks for the info, any more words of wisdom would be wonderful, and thanks for listening!

    Zanax can be prescribed with using MDone,but it's nothing you want to take over an extended period.

    SOme have used it for 2weeks and I would only bite into one insted of taking a whole pill or Bar.A bar is 2 of the little Purple Pills and they are powerful!

    ok its ang again, and i just got one question...does anyone know of a halfway house or rehab place that i can go to either res or outpatient, cause i have no insurance and have already used the city health funding program 2 times this past year (only suppose to give you 1/yr) anyhow no way they will compensate me again, not anytime this year!! so i am from michigan detroit, and if anyone has any places for me to go to that you know of that are decent...remember i need no detox time...day 5 and just took my last meth dose..only 40mg..120 5 days ago, feel great! know it may be a bit rough next few weeks, months,m whatever, prepared, just want to be clean!!! plan on taking vitamins minerals etc... to keep me going. having really BAD back pains every morning, and stomach problems (always have) but hopefully will subside. ok so any advice, dont want to write a novel. see you and keep your head high always!
