Self Detox at home with Suboxone
6 Replies RSS
After 31 months in a state correctional facility (for a non violent crime/ misdemeanors) I was released. I started taking Suboxone 8mg and have been since May 2011. I wanted to stop taking them but I knew the detox was not going to be easy and they don't really have a detox for suboxone except for Methadone and I do not ever want to go down that road again. I relapsed 14 day's ago and started shooting dope and have not taken a sub since. I'm going to now attempt to detox myself off the dope with suboxin. Today I ate 1 lorcet and one and a half vicodin and still feel sick. It has only been maybe an hour since I ate the vicodin and will wait awhile to take another. Tonight before bed around 10pm I will take another half of vicodin and tomarrow around 10am I will take a piece o... ...

methadone clinics in NH really make me MAD
Post a Reply
These clinics make a ton of money, don't kick you out for dirty UA's, (just cant have take-homes) always have a dozen reasons why you can't lower your dose, (doctors on vacation, not safe ect) BUT don't hesitate to kick you out if you haven't got your money to dose, or lose your insurance!!! And 2x have dosed my daughter the wrong dose!!!!! She takes 3 5mg daily and last year screwed up and gave her 20 and 3 days ago doses her with 110mg!!!! The government wants to keep making money....If they truly want to clean up our kids then they need to get them on Suboxone, and make it affordable for them....not dose them up to 400 mg of Methadone a day!!! ...

Dr Who Prescribe Methadone Near Angola, IN
1 Reply RSS
Please help. I am looking for a Doctor who will prescribe methadone near Angola, IN. I have been going to a Meth Clinic in Ft. Wayne for 12 years. I am so tired of that drive and the money they charge. Can you help? ## A regular doctor is not allowed to prescribe it for addiction treatment, that is only allowed to be done in a clinical setting by those that have been specially trained to do so. Learn more Methadone details here. I'm sorry, I know it's expensive and tedious, but the only thing I can think of is perhaps looking into Suboxone treatment. Learn more Suboxone details here. With it, people usually do end up completely drug free and not requiring a lifetime maintenance dosing. Have you looked into it as an option yet? ...

I am not looking for people tellin me to suck it up or give advice other than if the detox method described is reasonable or crazy?? Everytime I try to go below 2mg of subs I feel like hell will a dilaudid taper make it easier or start a new addiction an... ...

Difference between Suboxne and methadone
41 Replies RSS
What is the difference between the suboxone and methadone treatment ## Hi, Same question- What is the difference between methadone and suboxone ? Thanks for helping ! ## I was on methadone maintenance for 5 years this time (clean from other drugs for 4 years) and I just switched to suboxone. If you are just on dope or oxys, you need to figure out what you want. You will feel better/higher off the methadone. about an hour after you take it you get that kind of warm feeling and you can still catch a nod. I switched off methadone b/c I got sick of going to a clinic all the time, putting up with the bull**** and everyone treating you like you are a worthless junkie, even if you are doing everything right and working the program--but I am in a fairly big city, so my experience may be atypica... ...

Does pain killers help Methadone withdraws
4 Replies RSS
I have been taking Methadone for two years, but i want to get off of this medication and start taking Suboxone. Can I take Suboxone a day after I took my methadone? If not, can I take pain killers to help with the methadone withdraws until I start taking the suboxone? ## No, in order to start Suboxone, whether for drug addiction, or for pain, you have to be in full active withdrawal from all other narcotics. Suboxone contains the active ingredients Buprenorphine and Naloxone. The Naloxone helps neutralize other opiates to prevent their abuse, when someone is using it for addiction treatment. If you take it too close to the time period you are taking other narcotic analgesics, it can throw you into dangerous withdrawals. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I missed my clinic today... ...

Looking for a doctor who will prescribe methadone in the Charlotte, nc area. I have real pain due to a car accident back in 2000 when I broke my pelvis. I moved from Jersey to Nc and got the pain meds off of someone else and when I became pregnant I was told to go to a methadone clinic. I had no idea what I was doing or that I could easily have gone to pain management. I'm willing to drive almost anywhere within reason for a doctor who can give me methadone. I've tried subutex and suboxone but neither work.

Looking for methadone doctor in jacksonville fl

Hi all. I'm really hoping someone here can help me. I suffer from a protruding disc and degenerative disc disease in my lower back. I've been in pain management programs since 2011. At one point, my oxy use got to the point where I was using 100+mg daily. Once I realized that I couldn't continue on the path that I was on, I voluntarily got myself in to a suboxone/subutex program in Jacksonville, Fl. Right away, I realized that I couldn't take the suboxone because of the headaches that it gave me, but the subutex worked amazing for withdrawls and does help to make the pain more manageable. Now that I've been on it for nearly 8 months months, I've been considering methadone as an alternative because my insurance only agreed to pay for the subs for up to one year. I... ...

is it any easier to detox from opana than methadone
1 Reply RSS
Is it any easier to detox (get off of and stop using, permanently) from Opana ER than it might be from Methadone? ## Hello, Glenn! How are you? Yes, most other opiates are easier to get off of than Methadone. It is actually notoriously hard to ever get off, because it causes long-term severe withdrawals and cravings, that's why other solutions have been sought to replace it. Most people treated with Methadone for addiction never truly get to be drug free, they usually end up on a lifetime maintenance dose. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Another alternative for addiction treatment would be Suboxone, which is newer and enables most people to become ... ...
