I know that methadone can cause nodding. I am way beyond that stage of MMT though. I can admit that at certain points I was a horrible patient! I used everything under the sun to supplement getting high. I've been on doses of 345mgs, 230mgs, Split doses, Liquid, & Tablets. I've been on the dose I'm at now which is a split dose & the lowest dose I have been on, for well over 1 year. I have had clean drug tests I don't use any illegal drugs, I don't drink.
From this study (6 days ago):
Was removed from Metoprolol and RX Sotalol! Within 2 days rash (itchy bumps) started at nape of neck! After seeing 5 Drs. used method of elimination to stop! One Dr. put me on Steroids for 5 days, did help a little!
I discontinued Sotalol on my own after seeing 2 ElectroPhysiologists!
Going back on Metoprolol with the Magnesium. Have had very few AFib attacks but the rash continues to grow and is to the point of incapacitating me!
I do not know what to do....I am to see a new Cardio next week!
