Bama fanatic Says:
I really need some advice. Was taking about 10 loracets a day for 3 years.. I was determined to quit.. So I bought some sub films from a friend.. This is my 3rd say taking them.. I don't want to get addicted to these too.. I feel ok but they give me a headache and I feel nervous and a lot of anxiety. Mostly because I'm really scared of this big step.. My question is.... Can I take these for a couple weeks without being addicted and having withdrawals from them?? I'm only taking 1/2 sub a day.. I plan on going lower and lower then just quitting completely. Someone plz help me.. I have a 5 year old and a full time job.. I can't afford to be sick and don't have anyone to watch my child... Thanks..

I know this is late but hell yah give him the benzos. If he's really quitting opiates it's worth it. As long as he doesn't take benzo's too long as to where he'll be addicted to those

Even if you taper down with suboxone you will still withdrawl up to 5 months there are money hungry doctors out there who have NOT studied on opiate recovery it only s hould be used for short term detox and your still not feeling the good and bad its still blocking your natural state that you should be in... what happened to the recovery option to not be on any opiates???? is that not an option anymore

I am doing 2 shots of h everyday for a month now, before that 70 mg of methadone for a year. I want to stop. I was sober for several years and miss life. I try to detox at home with nothing but only last 2 or 3 days and then all the responsibilities build up and I have to go to work, I'm also working on my masters degree right now. I'm thinking suboxone. If I just knew how long this would last. Does anyone know?

with only 3, it'll be challenge. because you'll need an 8 the first day. the 2nd day, TRY 4 MG. if you're good, then good. the 3rd day, try 3mg, and then go down 1 mg so you last a week. you see, when you go down to .5, it's gonna be rough. but nothing like full agonist w/d's. YOU CAN DO'll just have to deal w/anxiety and depression for about 2 weeks

Im going thru the exact thing as you now, i started on sub 3 days ago after taking 10-20 norcos/percs a day stemming from an old back injury and have tried to stop cold turkey and ween off them. The WD were so bad i would never last more than 2 days. I finally told my doctor I have to get off of these and just deal with the back pain on my own. I got a script for 2 8mg/2mg subs a day and was scared as hell when i ran out of my pills. On top of that I moved into a new home and had a s*** load of stuff to do for the move and was afraid of going into WD and being useless. The subs have literally SAVED my life, I feel like a new person now and have not had a single craving. It is amazing! Good luck to you and to anyone else reading this give them a try , they REALLY work !!!

I am a licensed pharmacy technician and suboxen is a miracle drug.. trust me it works.. ill never go back to painkillers

im doing H, about 4 bags of really good a day. ive been trying suboxone and it's not relieving the cravings. it helps about 50% with the WD's, but the dr says i should be feeling great. but im still sweating and so slugggish. i took 3 8mg subs today and still sick. im considering just tapering with dilaudid i have from a script. any advice on that? ive never taken dilaudid but if i can take one in morning and one in evening so i can still work, taper to half that, then get 3 days where can take off work, do you think that's enough time to be ok to go back to work? also, maybe just give the subs more time and use them for 3 days when i can take 3 days off. i can take off for 3 days in 2 weeks, that's really all the time i have. is that enough time ya think?

Well, for starters, nowhere does ir say that NA made up the saying about trading one drug for another. Some drug addict somewhere probably said it and it makes a lot of sense since I was also on Methadone for a peroid of time and it was the worst experience of my life. I was definately not clean!!! I was just using methadone everyday!

hey SISSY/??? the trick is take oxycodone for your last high and not H.... when the oxy wears off then start the suboxone for some reason it will work a lot better!!

Are you still trying? Use sub when you feel WD symptoms and you'll be fine. If you use sooner, you'll get precipitated WD. Some can use it 6 hrs after last H, some 12 hrs. You need the methadone to be gone out of your system too.Take sub for 4 days (starting w/the least amount possible for your 1st dose .5 mg?) You can always take more if need be after about half hr if you don't feel better. You will be able to work on subs. Make sure you decrease your amount of sobo or just stick w/the .5 for four days and stop everything. Even skipping the 4th day in a row and take your last sub dose your 5th day. Don't take sub any longer than that or you'll have way worse time quitting sub. Some report WD's up to 6 months of zero use (a month+ of pysical WD's). Best of luck, I know this is late but I hope all is well!
