Need some advice about quitting Suboxone!!
Hi! This is my first time writing about my experience on Subs. Let's has been about 4 years I have been taking them. I was taking 80mg or more a day of oxycontin. I was wearing a size 0 in clothing, wasted every dollar I could get my hands on to go buy more (and where I live they were $70-80 per pill). And even worse, me and my husband were both on them so that doubles the money we were spending on them. After 2 years and nearly ruining our lives, we started the local Methadone clinic and things seemed to be getting better. We done that for a year when I had finally had enough of dozing off, falling asleep and gaining weight that I told my husband I was quitting cold turkey. I was getting my doses by the week at 80 mgs a day so we split it up so we both could do it and slo... ...

find a doctor that prescribes methadone Myrtle Beach
I'm wondering if there are doctors available in Myrtle Beach, SC that can treat patients on a month to month schedule with methadone. I currently go to a clinic daily and am finding the fuel for transportation harder to come by everyday. I would like to see a doctor that can write prescriptions for methadone to avoid this. Thank you ## HI, Bobby! How are you? I'm sorry, but no there isn't a doctor that can do this. Regular doctors can only prescribe it for pain. To use it for addiction treatment, you have to go to one of the clinics and see those that are specially trained to treat with it. Unfortunately, that is the way the laws currently stand in the U.S. What you might want to do instead is contact a doctor in your area that treats with Suboxone to see if they have any op... ...

what exactly does suboxone do? is it addicitive?
i have a friend who desperately wants to get off of methadone and pain pills. will suboxone work? is it addicitive too? if someone can please help me that would be great! also is it very expensive, that's what i've heard. ## Well, first off, yes, it can be addictive as well, however, it has distince advantages over narcotic meds, Benzos, and even Methadone. Suboxone works on many of the same receptors, since it is a narcotic agent, however, it does not give the same high effect and euphoria that most addicts enjoyed, which is what made them get addicted in the first place. It also contains an opiate neutralizer, so it neutralizes anything in your system from the other drugs you were using, and of course prevents someone from continuing to use while they are on it. Most people wh... ...

is it ok to mention that you are taking methodone a aa meeting
my friend said we should not mention at a aa meeting that he is on methodone, do aa people not approve or is he making up stuff? ## Hi Maniac! From my own personal experience, he's right! I have been judged and spoke about behing my back from being on methadone and suboxone. A lot of the people there at AA just want 2 hear about alcohol. That's it! Not all AA groups r like that, but, a lot r. ## P.S. I chose AA because there is more longevity with people staying clean than in NA. (Tried NA) people in NA told me that I wasn't clean because I was on methadone then suboxone. That's bull sh$$! Then after awhile in AA, I'm being judged because I don't drink alcohol.

Private Doctor To Prescribe Methadone Instead Of Clinics In Fort Worth Tx
I took Hydrocodone for pain for several years and became very dependent. I have been going to a Methadone Clinic now for 2 years and it saved my life. I have led a productive life since.

Thank you for your help ## Have you considered a possible switch to Suboxone? It has been very successfully used to enable people to become completely drug free, rather than staying dependent on something, as often happens with Methadone. Treatment with it is also often done with a take home prescription, rather than always having to go to a clinic for a daily dose. You can check for a doctor in your area at the ... ...
