Methadone Withdrawel

Were you looking for information about Methadone Withdrawal? Methadone withdrawel is a common misspelling of methadone withdrawal.
As a type of narcotic, opioid medication, methadone hydrochloride (Diskets®, Dolophine®, Methadose®) can cause withdrawal symptoms if it is stopped too quickly. Some of the possible signs of withdrawal can include vomiting, insomnia, and a rapid heart rate. Although withdrawal from methadone can be extremely unpleasant, it is unlikely to cause life-threatening complications.
To help minimize methadone withdrawal symptoms, your healthcare provider can slowly decrease your dose. It is recommended that the dosage be reduced by less than 10 percent at a time, with at least 10 to 14 days between reductions.
