    I am on 90 mgs of methadone daily and want to come off as quickly and obviously painlessly as possible. l am hoping for some kind words of advice. Thank you

    @lilmissfox can you tell us more of your story? Are you taking it at a clinic? I'm currently going to a clinic and the only way I know to come off is a slow taper. When my time comes I plan on doing a blind taper to ease the psychological effects.

    @lilmissfox... I think the best way to get off the methadone is to wean off of it with the help of a medical professional. I think that would be the safest, most comfortable way to do it. Just my 2 cents.
