Question Well hello I just want to start by saying thank you so very much for allowing me to be a part of such a wonderful group of people all over the world I am from Maryland actually Dundalk, Md and we do have a methadone clinic in dundalk I had attended it for 3yrs and now have returned back to the one I originally started with which is in Glen Burnie MD. But my question is they dropped me 30mg is 6days due to a slightly borderline EKG due to very low vitamin D I Knew this but of course to many I am just a recovering addict who knows nothing but I took the vitamin D for about 2 almost 3 weeks and my primary care doctor had me come in yesterday and re take it to see if the vitamin D helped it which it did it was perfect but now they act as if they don't wanna put me back up to my regular dose and even though I have been on methadone for about 8yrs it had me feeling like crap coming that much that fast really sucked but what should I do its not right at all...Ang advice is very much appreciated thanks have a blessed day.

When you went back to your primary care provider after taking the vitamin D, did he do a repeat EKG to make sure it was ok? If so, I would see if he would write a letter on his letter head to the clinic stating his findings and have him put a recommendation in that letter. Are you still taking the Vitamin D? I am not sure if it would help but it is worth a try.
Don't give up. Nothing can be gained by giving up.
Talk to your primary care provider and see if he/she is willing to help

"I will let yesterday end so that today can begin"

Never take any online advice over that of a qualified healthcare provider

I had to take my EKG in and it flat out stated that I was taking nothing but that the clinics machine and or operator must be wrong or I might have been experiencing white coat syndrome because the nurse that was giving me the EKG was discriminatory of my dose needs she intimidated me it went from 527 qtc at clinic to 390 from the heart doctors...just weeks apart.
