It depends: If it wasn’t prescribed to be taken right now, do not take it of course. If you’re having trouble tapering your methadone, having anxiety or other symptoms from withdrawal that you're having trouble with, please call or see your provider ASAP to prevent further problems, as your taper may need to be adjusted to better fit your needs.
