I have been on methadone for a little over a year. I had pancreatitus a few years back, and unfortunately, got hooked on all the pain meds they had me on. I was detoxing, coming down 1 mg a week, which is what was recommended by the doctor as the safest and healthiest way to get off the methadone. I was at 70, and had come down to 50. The doctor had me stop my detox and now I'm stuck on methadone while I'm pregnant. My boyfriend(non-addict), who has been nothing but supportive, is concerned about me being on the methadone and thinks I can stop it now since I'm newly pregnant. I know I can not stop the methadone, bc it is extremely bad for the baby. Can anyone just help me? I don't know how to explain it to him that it can cause miscarriage, but I'm also worried that my baby will be born addicted.
