I have now been on suboxone for a year, I got on it when I found out I was pregnant last January 2013 and I had my beautiful healthy daughter in August 2013 I used to be on subutex during my pregnancy but once I had my daughter I was switched to suboxone. I am on 2 1/2 strips a day and my doctor has been wanting to lower my dose however I have so much going on that I am really nervous to do so. I have lately been dealing with my daughter on my own her father just didn't show me the respect I deserved and he wasn't willing to work to support our daughter so we separated and now I am left on my own with all the finances out daughter and looking for employment which this all just recently happened since the last time I saw my doctor on top of that my daughter has medical issues due to her throat not developing correctly during my pregnancy so we have multiple doctor visits for her monthly and she has special feeding rules and medications to take so I am very overwhelmed. My doctor seems to be harder on me then his other patients some who have been on suboxone for 5+ years so this is making me very nervous to ask him to up my dose from 2 1/2 to 3 strips a day. Does anyone have any advice? I've really been trying to stick it out but I just feel like an emotional wreck and like my body can't take the stress. Please I need advice! How should I ask my doctor to up my dose?

I'm on day 23 of my Suboxone Withdrawal. The Withdrawals are pretty much over, I'm mainly dealing with lack of sleelp and not sure when my normal sleep cycle will come back. I was on Suboxone for a little over 3 years, was addicted to opiates for about 1 year before Subs. My last dose of Suboxone was 2mg per day for about 6 months. I could have tapered lower, but I was at my wit's end with this mess. The Last 3 months while on Subs I was very depressed, tired of being chained to something to feel "normal" if that's even an accurate description of what Suboxone does to a person. It changed me a lot, I pulled away from family and friends, I basically went to work and home and not much else for the last year. Luckily I was able to save quite a bit of money over the last 1 1/2 years to break my chain to Subs. I was at my Job a little over 9 years, I tried to ask for time off, but my bosses weren't very happy with that, they wanted me to wait until it was better for them, but I had to think about myself for once and chose to leave my place of employment and start on this journey of Self Discovery toward a life without any drugs.

5 years ago I didn't have a drug habit, but toward the end of a 5 year relationship I found out that the person I was in love with had cheated on me numerous times and it broke my heart. That changed me, I ended the relationship and started doing things that I had never done (pills) and found myself addicted. I tried to get off them, went into withdrawal and couldn't work and go through that at the time. I finally was given Suboxone, it was described to me as a cure, a miracle and pretty much a godsend to addicts. Within the first year I was tired of taking it, i wanted off it, because I had never been addicted to anything. I made a huge mistake, I blame no one but myself for this. I had planned to go off it, but then got the worst news of my life. My mother was diagnosed with stage 4 lung and brain cancer. My plan had to be put on hold, because I was my mothers caregiver. So for four months my Aunts and myself took shifts taking care of my mom, when I would go to work, one of my aunts would come and so forth. My mom did pass away 4 months to the day of finding out.

I was a wreck during that time, I had to take care of my mom's estate and tie up loose ends. The last 2 years I've went back and forth with the idea of getting off this crap, but I knew I had to save some money to do so. Thats what I did, I put back every dime I could over the last 1 1/2 years and on October 12th 2017 I made the decision to "jump". I'm a little over 3 weeks into the proces, I'm feeling pretty good, but still not sleeping all that great. I have been prescribed a sleeping med, but it's yet to give me more than 4 hours a night. I want to go back to work, but I know that I need more rest/energy to be able to do so. Now that I've shared my story, does anyone know just how long it takes for "sleep" to come back naturally?

Re: littlemoremercy (# 11)

I've been on 8mg sub for 10yrs. I deal with depression, that all the opiates were covering up. New meds,patience,honesty, and give yourself a break.

Re: Mandy (# 8)

Hey, so my girl took 2 small pieces of suboxone and never has taken opiates before and never took subxone before either. What's the best thing to make her not feel high and clam down? Is there anything?

Hello all. I am pregnant. I want my baby. I take prenatal vitamins and eat healthy, but am on 2mg per day of suboxone. I am scared to even start a prenatal appointment. What can I expect? My boyfriend of 10 years and I both have stable jobs and a decent home. However, a few years back I abused pain medication. So ashamed; however, I have been taking small amounts of suboxone to stay away from that. I do not have a prescription. I feel horrible and do not know what to do. I'm definitely going to go... Just want what is best for baby and wonder what will happen. Is it possible my child will be taken away because I don't have a prescription? This is my first. I have taken it about a year and tapered down to 2mg. Doctors normally prescribe 8mg a day. I did all this before being pregnant. Help?

Be honest with your doctor. Tell her/him exactly what you expressed here. I honestly believe they will help you. Your prior actions prove your good intentions. Try honesty with your doctor. I did with great results.

Re: robert (# 35)

No Suboxone blocks the effects of opioids. You will not feel the opioids if you take Suboxone. And I am sure combining these can cause other ill effects.
