What is the equivalent amt of morphime one would need to take day if they r switching from 120mg methadone daily?
It varies by person: Equvalencies when switching from Methadone are tricky. At low doses it is 3:1 so 120 would equal 360. At higher doses of Methadone and with more chronic use- some say that the equivalence can be as much as 10:1 (1200mg) however, there is no such thing as perfect cross tolerance and a starting dose of another opioid should be less than half the equivalent dose followed by quick adjustments. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

On the other hand, rapid dosage decreases can cause severe withdrawal symptoms which generally are not dangerous but are extremely uncomfortable but it depends on the patient's other medical conditions. Talk with your doctor and ensure that was intended. ...Read more
Why do I feel like a zombie on 1 mg of sub when I never felt like this even on my highest methadone amount?
It's a different med: Suboxene doesn't cause any "high" effect that you might have been addicted to and therefore a lot of people who have been abusing opioids don't feel the buzz they had on other opioids.
