Finally finished the last one and I got the flu. Its going around my job and my home. Then I realized something. When I went through withdrawl from oxys, It felt like the flu. (Weak body, sick to stomach). Im going through withddrawl. been four days now. feel a little better. I'm going to ride it out.
Avatar f tn Is it possible an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> one to take an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxonean> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> just a few days to get "through the withdraws" from hydrocodone abuse, like 300mg a day use.? any one have any ideas. I was thinking of talking about 1 8 mg sub in the morning first day(after 24 hours of with drawl) and 4 mg in the morning and 4 at nigh an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> the next day then 4 mg in the morning and 2 mg at night then then just stopping all together? so a total of 3 days of an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxonean> to get through the worst of the withdrawals.

My Dr had had prescribed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> 2 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>week</span> withdrawal script but I am unable to take this due to a court ordered program. This Drug Court has said I MUST be clean from this and any other drugs by Nov. 2nd. I've signed my life away to do this so I MUST be clean. Questions: 1.How long will this stay in my system? I had tested positive after taking no an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxonean> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> 3 days. The court said I should have been negative. They have given me 2 weeks to do this.

I cannot afan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran>d to keep paying an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> it, and have had SO much trouble finding a doctor up here who can prescribe it but I have had no luck.

Avatar f tn Now I like the an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxonean> and have taking it <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>for</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> month, longer that I shot up. I take it about 3-4 times <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>week</span> about 12mg, really just recreational. Can I cold turkey stop it since its just been a month or should I tapper? I only have 3/8mg strips left I could cut in 4ths. Or should I just stop? I read it is also a mental thing so am also concerned with that but don't want any wd from that. Not sure of I've been on it long enough to have wd but this recreational stuff is an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> the birds.
Avatar f tn I have to say that <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>suboxone</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> very strong medication to turn to <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>for</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> 3-4pill/day habit of hydro. I know how hard it is to quit and more importantly to stay clean, but maybe you should try to kick your current habit and see a doc an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> your depresson issues. after quitting opiates our brains take time to regain their ability to produce sufficient amounts of its own natural chemicals (norepenephrine/dopamine/serotonin), leading to feelings of depression/anxiety.
610505 tn?1329607323 I have managed to get down to 1/2 mg per day. How often should I continue to lower from here...once <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>week</span>, twice <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>week</span>...etc. My Dr. suggested that I go one day without taking it, but I get very agitated and sick to my stomach. I'm not real sure how much is physical and how much is psychological. What is your suggestion. Thank you!
Avatar m tn but when she started on Sub it was actually 3 x <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> day, <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>for</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> the first (I think 5 days) and then 2 x <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> day <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>for</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> few days and then to one time a day. When your addiction is totally out of control they will have you dose a few times a day to keep you from relapsing it is a lot mental and as you know physical but the goal in a week is to get you to one tablet a day...... two fold to break the cycle of railing oxy on an hourly basis and physically to adjust your body.
Avatar f tn See if your doctor can write you <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> prescription <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>for</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> some Requip <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>for</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> restlessness, Neurontin <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>for</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> anxiety and malaise, some Flexeril or Soma an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> a few weeks an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> muscle spasms and maybe some Seroquel low dose, an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> sleep and Klonopin which will be helpful an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> sleeplessness and anxiety. It will make your withdrawals easier. Valerian and Magnesium is sometimes helpful remedies over the counter. The residual symptoms of insomnia and depression can last another few months.

Avatar f tn Call your local adapt Research center. I live in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> 20,000 population town and we have one. They are doing a an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxonean> study and everything is free. I told them, heck i'd pay and be glad to get help. They are awesome people. From the Dr, to the counselor. They told me this study is going on nationwide. Good luck.

1141221 tn?1261007302 From reading about it on here I have heard the withdrawals are so much worse than other pain meds. Sub is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> very strong opiate. I have read that some recommend only using it <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>for</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> week or so and start tapering off of it around the 3rd day. Like I said, I personally don't know much about it. Someone will come along here shortly and help you out. Just be very careful with the sub as it is a replacement.
Avatar n tn OMG -- 16 mg?? That is one huge dose of Sub. I was addicted to 140 mg/day of Oxycontin and started on Sub at 2 mg twice a day. Then I tapered from there but not fast enough to avoid some really horrid W/D's -- I was on Sub an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> 21 days. My opinion is that Sub should only be taken as needed to avoid the really really bad W/D's.
1054484 tn?1255117167 I would have stayed at the clinic and took an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxonean> through them and done there program, but I was at 160 mg a day, they kept telling me since it wasn't high enough to make me coman style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran>table an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> 24 hours that my dose needed to go up, I said no.
