Thanks for your reply Randy and John
I can understand post therapy will be important.
Lowering my dose as well as exercise, both of which I
find hard to do, are on my "to do list". Unfortunately
I get confused by info overload. Some say methodone
tapering is the only real course of action while
others suggest the naltrxone rapid 5 day detox. I know
ibogaine has the reputation of being hard to go thru,
scarry  anacdotes of heart problems and even death,
and not accepted by traditional medical communities.
But I don't want to become a methadone 'lifer' or
suffer the known side effects of rapid detox. I have
been regularly consulted by Sandra at the Vancouver
clinic and  she has been very helpful and informative.
Being Canadian I feel pretty secure with using their
facilities out west.  
I asked Howard about the age question too and he said
if my general health was good and that had to be
answered as honestly as possible, then I should be
alright.  How big a "should" that is, is hard to say
for a  physically strenuous treatment like ibogaine
can be. My procrastination is not good at all. What
level of oxy use should I be at before treatment for
example. If there is someone out there who is familiar
with this form of opiate and how it is affected by the
ibogaine treatment  I would  appreciate them sharing
their knowledge. One thing about this forum I have
gained a lot of valuable insight into others problems
dilemas and unique solutions as well. More helpfull
encounters from complete strangers is a welcome change
from the sterile advice given by so many others "help"
Thanks for the info.
