Hello everybody! I justed wanted to come in and share my experiences with everyone. I used opiates for two years before going onto suboxone. Everything was going pretty well for the most part until I had some problems with the damned doctors office. They used to refill my script for me over the phone, until they changed practices and couldn't do that anymore. This was a bit of a problem as I couldn't get a follow appointment for over a week, they were less than understanding to say the least. I only had a few "crumbs" left so I was in trouble! You can only guess who my next phone call was to, relapse. I promised to only use until I could get back on the suboxone. Yeah right. My drug use worsened until I hit bottom. I was in huge debt, lost all my friends, and in a crappy relationship. It was time for a change. I came to a close relatives home 1400 miles away to get things straightened out. I quit cold turkey, though I did had some xanax to help with anxiety. What can I say? Withdrawal is withdrawal and it is not fun. The runs, insomnia, no appetite, tears, back pain, peeing a lot, depression, cravings; the works. I'm now on day 11 and things are a lot better. Still a few chills, teary eyes, and anxiety but I really do feel pretty good. I know that the mental part is the hardest. I pretty much have a dream every night that I use, or is in that nature. My cravings are fading each day but I am fully aware that I am no where NEAR out of the woods yet. My only dilema right now is that I'm scheduled to leave here next Friday. I don't know what I should do. I could stay here for as long as I need to for my healths sake, but if I don't go back then I will lose my semi-well paid job. I also know that chances of relapse are greater there and basically non-existant here at the moment. Well, thats about it. Any feedback is appreciated. By the way, Alice in Chains helped get me past the withdrawals a little easier :D Everybody have a great day.

So is suboxone not an option? Isn't there a differen doctor you can go to? I just thinkt he risk of relapse is too high without it. I made it a month two summers ago and relapsed...been on suboxone a year now and have learned so much about this stuff...i'm close to being ready to going off. I don't know...if you can't get mroe suboxone I'd stay where you are and don't go back. It would be hard not to call your dealer. But that's just my opinion.

Hello, thank you for replying. I was on suboxone for over a year while I was on it. I think it was easier to deal with the withdrawals from the oxy's than it was with suboxone. Not in any way am I downing suboxone, it was life saving for me at the time I started; I'm just saying that it is extremely potent and the half life of it is unbearable if you don't taper down properly. I really don't want to be back on suboxone unless it comes to that. I hear you on the relapse thing, it's a scary thing. I have about 5 days to decide if I'm going to stay up here in Baltimore or test my will power back home. If I were to go back then I wouldnt even be able to afford to use for at least a couple of weeks, so thats a upside. It's just really confusing when it comes down to it. I don't know anyone here so it's a little boring, and I would have to start my carreer over. I'm really lucky to even have the option to choose though. Everybody take care.
