Avatar_n_tn i am buying them illegaly on the street. Besides going to a treatment facility. What ilight>canilight> ilight>iilight> do before ilight>iilight> ilight>takeilight> that step. ilight>iilight> have went through withdraws for two days before i gave in. i take 3 every 3 to 4 hrs a day. Please let me know what to do. if nothing works, i will call a dr and take the steps i need to take.
Avatar_f_tn it is here when you should read your notes of what you went through during your w/ds...... You ilight>canilight> do it ilight>iilight> swear you ilight>canilight> plan it out and focus.......
Avatar_f_tn i really do not have question, i have read all of your posts, done my research and actually went through withdrawl myself, over a year ago.. was clean for 3- 4 months.. and yes... here i am addicted- maybe even a little worse as before. i guess what i am looking for is someone to be by myside this time, when i think i just can't do it anymore, i pick up my laptop, and you or him or she is there... to answer.
Avatar_f_tn Thank the Lord. ilight>iilight> swear ilight>iilight> had the flu. but after reading this ilight>iilight> see this is all normal w/d. ilight>iilight> feel like a horrible person. i have a 18month old and 3 year old daughter. i feel i have cheated my husband and kids of the real me for the last year. i need support. i am mad at myself and mad at the Dr. Any advice would be so very greatful.
Avatar_n_tn Won't sleep well, will probably have restless leg syndrome. Google it. Personally, ilight>iilight> can't taper. if ilight>iilight> have them, ilight>iilight> ilight>takeilight> them, even knowing what's coming. Maybe if you will hold them for him he'll have a chance? After having gone through this several times, someone turned me on to methadone. i take one 10 mg after the symptoms appear. One has actually been all i needed at times, but usually i'll take one for 3 or so days.
Avatar_n_tn its been a long time since i've posted something, but i just wanted to let everyone know...ilight>suboxoneilight> ilight>iilight> a dream drug. ilight>iilight> wa utterly addicted to ilight>vicodinilight>..and ilight>iilight> am free of my problems thanks to suboxone. i've never been happier..things are truly going great!
Avatar_m_tn That's what i don't understand about addiction because i just have no desire to take anything again, the w/d's cured me of my addiction to ilight>vicodinilight>. ilight>iilight> am on 2mg of ilight>suboxoneilight>, go down to 1, ilight>canilight> ilight>iilight> quit then? What should ilight>iilight> do? ilight>iilight> appreciate any feedback. i know i am a coward but am not afraid to admit it.
Avatar_f_tn is that right suboxone experienced people? ilight>iilight> wasn't supposed to ilight>takeilight> any ilight>vicodinilight> after 1, but did at 6. ilight>iilight> think that means ilight>iilight> am going to have major symptoms tomorrow, so i am quite nervous, but just want to get it started. i will be reading and posting on this forum to discuss my progress. i wasn't (and still am not) sure that suboxone is the right choice, but i have been telling myself that i would wean for months and if anything have increased my dose.
1054484_tn?1255117167 i do know that i was overdoing the ilight>vicodinilight> 5/500, ilight>iilight> couldn't ilight>takeilight> the ilight>vicodinilight> ES since 7.5/750 means even more tylenol. norcos on the other hand dont matter weather you are 5, 7.5, or 10 mg of hydrocodone, they only have 325 mg of tylenol.
Avatar_f_tn i used suboxone for about 10-days to get out of a pretty heavy Hydrocodone Addiction. i was/am dealing with Chronic Back issues...&, found the pills wearing off, so i took more & more...Then, more just to feel "normal" (which is an iLLUSiON by the way). Your brain is so screwed up & it's tricking you. PLEASE TRUST ME! i have been there, scared to death, more than once. But, this time i'm done. i've asked for help & been honest about everything.
268911_tn?1213748381 hey there....ilight>iilight> ilight>takeilight> ilight>suboxoneilight>. it does work very well for the withdrawals. When you start the suboxone, you have to be in w/d mode - dr told me i could not take anything at least 15 hrs before my appt to start or i would get really sick and the w/d's would be worse. There's also quite a few people on here who are taking it and/or have taken it and are off w/complete success. i've been taking opiates for 10yrs, up to 15-20 vicodin a day .. then over to 80mg oxy's 2-3 a day ..
Avatar_n_tn But, you see ilight>iilight> was in a study ilight>withilight> the adapt program. ilight>iilight> didn't mess up and ilight>takeilight> a hydro codone and ilight>iilight> found out later if i had, they would have extended my taper. You will do fine on your taper. These drs. have special training for the sub, so your doc will know. You do know you have to go in there in full blown withdrawals, don't you? Keep posting and hang in there.
217599_tn?1202854552 it was all mental with me and one i got over that ilight>iilight> could ilight>takeilight> it twice a day. ilight>iilight> got pregnant when ilight>iilight> was on the ilight>suboxoneilight> and ilight>iilight> had to be switched to methadone which i wish they never did. i'm in the process now of switching back to suboxone. i hate being on methadone, its the wors thing ever! Do you know anything about switching from methadone to suboxone? i've been trying to figure out the best way to do it. Any info would be appreciated!
Avatar_n_tn i can't remember exactly what association it was (you'll see it when you research ilight>suboxoneilight> online), ilight>iilight> was able to make an appt. ilight>withilight> a dr. (ilight>iilight> believe by law they are only allow to treat up to 100 people), went to see him--he explained the entire process, gave me a shot, and prescription for sub. i paid him $245, because most insurance wouldn't cover it; got the prescription for $8-$10 (insurance covered that), and of course, really encouraged me to see addiction counselling, as well.
454281_tn?1218213861 i am glad to have stumbled upon some information on here but would like more if anyone ilight>canilight> help. Oh and ilight>iilight> should also say.... ilight>iilight> have not been taking the ilight>suboxoneilight> 3 x's a day, since i have read the some info on here.
237500_tn?1189759431 Hey everyone - ilight>iilight> am on Day 15 of ilight>suboxoneilight>. ilight>iilight> have dealt a lot ilight>withilight> middle of the day fatigue and even my first few days on Sub, i would catch myself dozing off at work!!! if i had to guess why, id say it was my body's way of telling me that my dose was too high! Since then, i have gotten my doses figured out (with the help of my Dr.) and now i take one 8mg pill every night before bed and sometimes 4 mgs the next day around noon, if needed (more often than not these past few days.
309618_tn?1193379313 3 hours after i gave birth the nurse brought me 2 vicodins to help with pain. ilight>iilight> was sent home ilight>withilight> to RX for ilight>Vicodinilight>. Well ilight>iilight> took them, was fine when ilight>iilight> ran out. But then 1 month later i injuried my knee during older daughters cheer practice. Well went to my Dr and bam they gave me Vicodin. Sent to a Ortho and More pain pills. i never Dr. shopped or anything like that, But this medical group was great for giving me pain pills.
Avatar_m_tn ilight>iilight> am interested in detoxing ilight>withilight> ilight>suboxoneilight>. ilight>Canilight> anyone tell me how much money ilight>iilight> will need to do this? i have been taking way to much for a short period of time but i know my W/W will be the worst i've ever felt before. i finished 400 Tramadol in about 30 days and have 200 left. Now they just make me feel normal. Sick also. There is no high left or me. i just want out of this ****. Thanks for your help.
Avatar_f_tn suboxone has a ceiling effect that keeps you from getting blasted. i have no diea how you were able to get "high" from taking suboxone, it binds to tightly to your brain, that it will only allow so much of the drug to be absorbed at one time(32 mgs) is a roguh estimate of the max, depending on your body type.
610505_tn?1329607323 im scared to ilight>takeilight> ilight>suboxoneilight> but then ilight>iilight> cant seem to get off the Vics on my own. if ilight>iilight> am on Sub for a short time (2-3 months) and taper slowly, will i go through a worse withdrawal than i would just going off of vicodins? The nurse i spoke to told me that i will go through some withdrawal but its not the same (as bad) as it would be withdrawaling off of oxys, percs or vics.
Avatar_f_tn FLaddict posted some info about Sub in a string i started on 10/04/07 titled "i got off Sub, and so can you". it was all info i never got when i started a Sub program, and if it's accurate it seems like something patients should all be made aware of when they first start taking Sub. What she says seems to make sense, and she claims to have done a lot of research into Sub. if it's true its important to know so that people don't get strung out on Sub by taking it for too long.
Avatar_f_tn My doctor suggested that ilight>iilight> find a doc. that ilight>canilight> prescribe me ilight>suboxoneilight>. So that is what ilight>iilight> did. ilight>iilight> have an appt. for Tues. i am very nervous and scared. i don't know what to expect. i feel like i have to convince this doctor to help me. Like he may say that i don't have a problem because i only take a few pills a day. But when i don't have any pills, i spend my whole day crying because i feel so depressed. i have to work full time and i don't know what Sub. is going to make me feel like.
Avatar_f_tn i have called and left a message to make an appointment. ilight>iilight> figured ilight>iilight> might as well post this so ilight>iilight> ilight>canilight> give you guys updates - just in case anyone wants to try it too. i know that i can no longer do this on my own and if i do not have to feel the brunt of the w/d's more power to me right? So that is my plan. i will let you guys know how it goes tomorrow. Hopefully i can get in tomorrow!
1091982_tn?1256946113 i have a manual transmission, and so far, i feel pretty crappy in the morning- like i used to feel when i had been out drinking the night before- a hangover feeling is the best way ilight>iilight> ilight>canilight> describe it. ilight>iilight> went ahead and made another appointment ilight>withilight> a different pain management clinic, but i dont have a very good feeling about it.
Avatar_n_tn healthmueller Yes, you ilight>canilight> ilight>takeilight> a percocet about 8-10 hours after taking ilight>suboxoneilight>, ilight>iilight> have done it and it works fine, other people say you will get sick as a dog, but that is not true, because they have never tried it, that is just what the doctors tell you because they don't want you to know you can do this. i am currently on suboxone maintaince, and don't do percs anymore, but i used to get sobo's on the street and take opiates later in the day and they worked.
Avatar_f_tn My son's 4 year daughter comes in in the middle of the night and crawls in bed ilight>withilight> them. ilight>iilight> ilight>canilight> understand why my son is so depressed. Thank you for your information. Please pray for my son and me. i feel like i'm losing my mind.
307401_tn?1194835748 i didn't get a buzz on the percs other than pain relief, So it was back on ilight>withilight> my life and ilight>suboxoneilight>. As ilight>iilight> said ilight>suboxoneilight> is only a partial opioid antagonist.
Avatar_n_tn i have to say that reading everyone's stories helps a lot. ilight>iilight> love reading the ones ilight>withilight> positive outcomes. addiction is such a hard thing, ilight>iilight> give so much credit to anyone who is strong enough to overcome it!
Avatar_f_tn i hated taking it because ilight>iilight> was sick a lot, but it also saved me from a life time of misery. ilight>iilight> ilight>canilight> tell you, ilight>iilight> ahve ZERO cravings for any type of pill. i am back to my normal weight lifting schedule. i have my energy back. Life is good again. BUT...... AND i MEAN BUTTTTTTT. it had it's cost. My doctor told me Subutex withdrawal would be very mild, and would last a couple of weeks. i would have a slight headachem but i would be OK. WRONG.....
Avatar_m_tn Did i read your profile correctly, that you are facing a third back surgery soon? if this is correct ilight>iilight> don't think you ilight>canilight> start ilight>suboxoneilight> therapy until the surgery is compete AND you've stopped using the pain mgmt meds. it would be helpful to know more amount your current usage and why you're interested in suboxone. i think many of my peers here would view suboxone as a method of last resort. Keeping posting your questions.
