I got my appointment with the specialist who had successfully helped many to get off Suboxone and other hard drugs with minimal withdraw. I was told to expect to be with him about two hours and it would be a charge of $350.00, insurance will not cover this they say but I do have the mind to use my HSA and check with the insurance either way.

I know I need all the help I can get so I am going to do it regardless of the cost. I dropped my dose to 2.5mg this morning, so far so good, I had a little of the lose BM, like actually welcomed this again since I have not been able to go in about six years. So far I have some aches but it is not so bad, I am scared I will wake up in the middle of night in terrible withdraw or it might hit me at work, just praying it will not be so bad.
My husband has been home since Thursday which has been wonderful, he is truck driver and had not been here since Christmas. He has to leave tomorrow and I am sad about that but this life right now. Later he will look for something else. He actually came over from Europe and it has been a pure miracle we have been able to get all the paperwork done and keep him here, he actually found a great job and things are good. He even said not to worry about the money, he will make sure I have it and had been really supportive. I wish he could be here through it all, but it will make me stronger.

I plan to update and withdraw symptoms with the dose reduction. I feel fine as of now.

Evening two of 2.5mg, feeling it tonight. My legs burn and tingle. I am nervous it will get worse. I'd like to take my skin off and rub my bones at this point, strange feeling!

I am sticking it out, a hot bath is running. Hopefully it will help, I fear tomorrow will be worse but I can only pray and hope for the best at this point.

Waiting for Friday with this special physician, hopefully he can really give me some pointers.

That's great that you are going to see a specialist who actually knows a lot about this stuff!! I am looking forward to hearing what he has to say to you about your taper and coming off of it with minimal withdrawal. Good luck and hope you start feeling ok on 2.5mg.

Good luck to you. Do you have any idea what his special "method" is? Do you know how he plans on going about getting you off suboxone or over what time period?
