    Has anyone successfully tapered off methadone? I have been slowly decreasing my dose for almost 2 years and am finally down to 1 mg. I have been on methadone for almost 10 years and Im nervous to take the full leap. any advice would be great, there is no info about getting off methadone!!

    There is info online if yr able to get online.

    I've known a few who tapered off & a couple Cold Turkey .

    I'm not you but if I were at 1 mg , I'd 'Try' to tell myself " Just Do It ".
    Good Luck & wanting to quit is the biggest step IMO.
