    I'm on 10 mg of methadone a day for Sjogren's Syndrome and sciatica pain. I do not want to be on this drug any longer. I've had sleeping and breathing difficulties and my doctor is new and not very helpful.

     Do I have to worry about withdrawals since I have taken this for a short time at a low dose?

    Here's how I've been taking it: 

    10 mg a day for 4 weeks (28 days)

    5 mg a day for 2 days (35 hour spacing)

    Thanks so much for your care and concern with answering this!
