Methadone Withdrawl

Were you looking for information about Methadone Withdrawal? Methadone withdrawl is a common misspelling of methadone withdrawal.
 
If you suddenly stop taking methadone hydrochloride (Diskets®, Dolophine®, Methadose®), you may experience withdrawal symptoms, such as vomiting, irritability, and insomnia. While these symptoms can be extremely unpleasant, they are not likely to cause life-threatening complications.
 
However, methadone withdrawal can be so uncomfortable that people start taking the drug again in order to obtain relief. In order to limit withdrawal, you should not stop taking methadone "cold turkey." Your healthcare provider can slowly decrease your dose at a rate that helps minimize symptoms.
 
(Click Methadone Withdrawal for the full eMedTV article, which takes a detailed look at these and other withdrawal symptoms and explains what your healthcare provider may recommend in order to prevent them. You can also click any of the links in the box to the right for specific information.)
