Hi Newlife, I can tell you,for me, suboxone has helped with pain and also with the minor depression I was experiencing due to menopause! Thanks for keeping us updated! Glad to hear that things are going well!

Great news newlife!! As I said, I switched to sub from methadone after 8 years of methadone. It was smooth.
It's important to not worry about trying to take minimal subs and to just get her comfortable for the first 1-2 months. Methadone takes forever to leave our bodies completely. I was good on 8mg a day mostly. I took up to 12mg the first week after the transition. It's easy to taper once she feels better. I'm at 0.3mg after only 4 months on subs and jumping off soon. What she needs now is to get 100% stable before anything else.

Hey sorry I haven't posted in a while. Everything is going great! She stabilized on 8mg suboxone. At about 6mg right now. 3mg am 3pm or 2 and two. Or 3 am 3 pm and 1 at night. Sleep is good. No feeling methadone wd while at work, just suboxone wd but that's easily fixed by taking her second dose! Any questions or anything I will happily answer. This worked out very well for her. I will keep checking and updating. I've been busy at work and haven't had time to write a 30 second update :/
It's possible and she's a lot happier now than on methadone. I asked her what she liked about it and she said it gives her energy. Whereas methadone made her tired and groggy. :) !!!
