Okay so my question is about <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</span>. I too for your years struggled with narcotic pain pill addiction and eventually found the oh so awful methadone and thought that was the way out. Needless to say I found this out the long and hard painful way. So anyway after being on the methadone for two years I had to get off and ten months later found myself with an even worse pill addiction than before. So now I am on sub. I am prescribed two strips a day. Do I take them together or seperately?
I have been on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</span> since the end of feb I started out 8mg and I am now down to 0.75mg. I went down 2mg ever 3 days until I got to 2mg then I went down to 1mg. I had to stay at 1and 2 mg a few days longer to allow myself to stabilize and the w/d to decrease. Once I got to 1mg I'm going down 0.25mg until I'm only taking 0.25mg then I'm going to start skipping days then stop. I hope this helps.
Two years of addiction, being broke, misery, losing friends and family....OVER! I did have to go to a doctor and get a prescription for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</span>. Maybe it's just me, but I almost feel like I'm switching from one addiction to another. Although I'm not constantly counting pills and dollars, I'm still taking a pill daily. I have already tapered myself from 2/day to 1.5/day and felt no withdrawal symptoms whatsoever. I've heard the withdrawal from suboxone can be terrible... Is this true.
I've been on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</span> for a year and my doctor and I decided that it's time to come off. I did a slow taper down to .5 grams per day. I'm on day 5 and can't stand the inability to sleep.Any advice on this and how long this is going to last? I'm super frustrated. Thanks for any feedback.
teva clonidine, apo-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ibuprofen</span>and teva-trazodone. I went back to work, still feeling good and i will be honest that while my friend was driving i started to get high, called the doctor and told him about it and he said it is normal. Got to the office did my thing.
I agree. I was prescribed 8mg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</span>and asked many times why? And realize I was only a meal ticket. And I detoxed almost 2 months ago. And still waiting for that 90 day mark. Hope it comes soon. So I am not so depressed unmotivated and weak and I am getting massages acupuncture every week because after or in the middle if detox. I was so scared ended up at advertised New Beginning clinic in Florida.
I am a 68 yr old woman on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</span>, 3 huge cavities and in pain. I understand that I must wait 3 days with no subs to face possible extraction. Will novocaine work? Will painkillers work? What can I do to relieve the pain now? Tried ambesol. help!! in pain.
I wanted off of opiates due to stomach problems and constipation-I took <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</span> for about 1.5 and got off with some withdrawls-I lost about 10 lbs and I took a few days off of work and got through it. Since then I have had bouts of pain that i have been trying to control with Robaxin, ibuprofen-lately I have been taking norcos -up to 2 a day-I notice I am starting to go with w/d if I don't take it.
I've been on 12-16mg of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</span> for 5 days now and i keep getting terrible headaches. I feel fine other than the pain in my head. I dont get the headaches every day but have had them 3 out of the 5 days now. Just want to know if this is expected and if there is anything i can do to help take it away. Any help is appreciated!
Took some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ibuprofen</span>and its letting up some but I do have to say when I woke up this morning the room and everything I looked at looked brighter and more clear. Did this happen for you? Really weird..almost like the fog was lifting off of my brain everything looked real sharp. Keep up the great work..remember your progress is inspiring me. If you do this then I can too so if you suceed then 2 people have!
I am currently on day 3 without any <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</span>and I am doing ok. I slept about 5 hours the first night and about 4 hours the next (in 2 hour blocks) symptoms are definitely worse when trying to sleep. I also was able to take a nap for a couple hours today. I would say my worst symptoms so far are a stiff neck and restless legs. Everything seems manageable so far. I am taking no prescriptions except a thyroid med and i take OTC ibuprofen and vitamins. I will try and update every day or so.
8 days and today has started a little easier aslong as I stay put. When I get up I am faint-headed and dizzy and my back hurts continuously. I have been weaning myself off oxy's for the last year and switched to subs for two weeks before I quit. I was taking 4 mg. every day or two except when my back pain was bad as I did on my last dose when I took 8 mg. Will that effect my recovery time? I had been on opiates for almost 20 years.
And the first week was hell on earth literally. But now I am 47 days free off <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</span>and I and others have noticed such a positive impact on my life. I will never go back now that I have my clarity and emotions back. Opiates basically just make you numb all over in regards to everything. suboxone itself also gives you a hungering for sweets. So whatever you weigh before suboxone, you can add about 15-25% to your weight.
I felt like a junkie, because I was one.
I put myself into rehab and was given <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</span>. Over FIVE years (yes FIVE), I went from four films a day to three to two to one to half to a quarter. I am trying to get off suboxone, but I can't get off the last of the 1mg I am on. Can anyone give me a tip? I want to be done with this journey.
For those of you that are on Vicodin or any other pain killer - free yourself from that demon. You CAN do it!
I was going through wicked Withdrawal,admitted to a detox for a week and started on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</span> there.I talked to my Dr and she said she will take me down to 12 mgs,for my next refill and then if it goes ok will start to wean lower after that.I really want to get off it . So hopefully this will work.All told I probably will be on it for 5 months.weaning off of it,any withdrawal cant be as bad as getting off the oxys.I am in pain anyway with my back but that magnetized the pain 20x worse.
Again, straight up, on the second day after I took my 8mg film, I started to feel sick, so on the third day, I didn’t take anything, no oxy nor suboxone. The only thing I took was about 10 Advil’s and 3-4 800mg ibuprofen for my pain.
