Here is my story on my secound day on suboxone and I am stickin to it.

Two years ago I woke up and could not move my head. I was scared and rushed to my DR. I had injections in my neck and shouldrs. This is when I was introduced to hydrocodine. I took the medication as directed by my DR. The pain got worse and the mg went up adding other Drugs on top of it. After a year and a half of this and trying everything to get the pain to go away it was time to see a specialist. While my new DR. ran all kinds of test i was now on morphine and still in pain. The last month has been the worse of my life. Last Monday I blacked out from the pain and was rushed to the hospital. Thank the lord my mom was their when I blacked out because to tell you the truth I really dont remembr what happend. I was pushing myself not to take a pain pill because I so badly wanted to get off them. I did not want to take the pain pills but my body did. Well in this War my body won by showing me it just would shut down. 3 days in the hopital and lots of IV pain meds in me I was ready to get off the roller coaster of pain killers. Friday I went to the DR. I said this is not me or the life I want and need help. The hospital had set up an apointment to talk about surgery. Good thing I go a secound opionion because I could hve gone under the knife and it was not needed. I am only 27 and way to young to be having surgery on my back. Now I know I have medical issues with my back but this can be fixed without surgery. Its the secound day of being on suboxone and no medication has ever taken away the pain as well as this medication. So even though i always took my medication as i was told I am now an addict. I just wish someone would have told me earlier. I know it took 2 years to get this bad and it will take time to get myself back to myself. I think I have been through every emotion their is happy it is working,scared the pain will came back, angry it got this bad. I have gone over all the information of suboxone and read alot of story's some alot like mine and some very diffrent. So here is my final thought I am here and no matter what got me here I am thankful for Suboxone because I am finally looking forward to what's to come because I have not been able to say that in two years.

Just because the DR. gives it to you does not mean it's not a DRUG. I may have said no to drugs but my body said yes!

Welcome here Dolce and I hope you get a lot out of our forum.

You are not alone being a pain patient and being given Suboxone that is meant for opiate addiction. Ask your doctor how he is writing the diagnosis. There are doctors out there who only prescribe it for pain patients. I know that because when I was first looking for Suboxone Dr.'s, one I called said he only prescribes it for pain. I thought nothing of it at the time but now wonder how he got around the diagnosis part. Whatever, ask your doctor. If he is writing it for pain then you can't be labeled and addict. And it's good to know you didn't abuse the meds.

Welcome once more and feel free to ask questions.
