Hello, Julie! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problems that you're having.

Yes, it is normal for the Suboxone doctor to want to taper you down, after a period of time, because that is what they are supposed to do, since they treat addiction, not pain. It is in the FDA guidelines for such treatment.

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.

Unfortunately, since you've gone to an addiction clinic, it is highly unlikely that you will find a doctor that is willing to treat you by prescribing pain medications, since you do have a history of abuse and the clinic is noted in your medical records, now. You will most likely be better off staying where you are.

I wish I had better news for you, or some other advice to offer, but I don't.

Does anyone else have any advice or ideas that may help?

I'm in same shape. I can't find a PCP or pain management. I just found out also I got osterposis and stenosis along with herniated disk. I'm back on my walker. I can't take subutec and my PCP is scared cause all the laws n only gives me 4 ten rocys and it doesn't touch this pain. I have even broke my tailbone. These docs has no sympathy
