    Hi rumer , It really depends how long you were on it ? and how quickly you detoxed off it ? I was on it for 2 yrs plus & jumped off a rather big amount & it took 3 months just to even start to recover ! From other people I’ve know it takes a few months to wear off also & start to feel like yourself !! Your muscles hurt & sweats are common side affects also . I’d not go on it again ! It serves a purpose , But is never go on it again !! I hope you find it easier than I did .

    What a mammoth effort from both of you @Rumer and @Fresh start.

    Opiates were never my drug of choice so I've never detoxed from them but I've watched my mum detox multiple times and her methadone detox was by far the most sick I have ever seen her. I take my hat off to you both for sharing this with us and for making the choice to go through the hard yards to work towards the life you want.

    How are things for you both now?
