You'd probably be better off asking this question in a drug addiction group. I don't believe many people here have experience with methadone.

I've heard from a number of ex-heroin addicts that meth withdrawl is much, much, worse than heroin withdrawl - due to the fact that it lasts a lot longer. The key is probably tapering slowly.
There's no rush, you know? Just take it slow, very slow if need be - so that it is as comfortable as possible.

I'm no expert though... search around for some herioin/opiate addiction online support groups and things of that nature, and you may get some better answers.

By the way, have you considered switching to buprenorphine?
