In brief: Gentle Weaning

Generally, it is not recommended to stop suddenly.
Rather, work with your doctor to reduce your dose in order to wean off about 10% of your daily dose every 3 days until off. This would be a very gentle weaning.

In brief: Methadone

Getting off Methadone is quite simple and usually involves a dose reduction done several weeks at a time.
In my practice I do this monthly as this is what works best for me and my patients.
