    Default Methadone/Benzo 20 years - detox


    I've been on Methadone for about 12 years and Benzos (generally Clonazepam) for about 15 years. I've been having stomach pains and it's not constipation, I've had a colonoscopy and endoscopy and both have tested fine. Anyone having similar problems? I'm coming down 5 mg every few weeks on the methadone, because I don't know what else it could be.

    If it's not constipation I doubt it's directly caused by the methadone but it could be indirectly. Stomach pain is a broad symptom that could be anything and might not even be in your actual stomach. But as a generalization, while on any opiate your digestion is slowed and somewhat unnatural so coming off the methadone might be a good thing. However as you reduce the opiate, your digestion could speed up causing stomach discomfort so that would be temporary to keep in mind, it might get worse before it gets better. For now, take a close look at what foods you eat and see if any are related to increase or decrease in the stomach pain and continue working with your doctor.
