I wrote my story in another post and in it I said I was on Subutex. For the last 4 weeks I have been on Opiates because of pain in my legs. I DID NOT ask to be put back on the Opiates and even questioned if we should take that chance. But the doctor felt it was reasonable and I need a break from two years of increasing pain that no one can figure out the cause of.
But I see this as something temporary and that’s why I agreed to it. I like being on the Subutex too much to get off of it. It is a miracle drug that spares me from many health problems and physical and emotional problems. Like I said in my other post, it gave me my life back.
So for my question…
Since coming off the Subutex and going back on the Opiates I noticed that there is no “feeling” from the Opiates. It’s like I’m taking aspirin. I know that is the effect of the receptors being blocked from the Subutex. If this is how most people feel when they take an Opiate, I can understand why they wouldn’t get caught up in an addiction. I would have never had a problem if I would have been affected by the Opiates this way in the beginning. But I’m wondering how long I’m safe from those addictive cravings? So far I haven’t had any and I’ve taken the Opiates the way they were prescribed without even an interest in abusing them. As a matter of fact I’ve taken less then was prescribed and I informed the doctor of that. I just wish that there was some way for someone who doesn’t have the addiction to experience the difference in feeling how it affects those of us who have that problem. I have had the chance to find out the difference but my wife and others like her are kind of cheated out of that knowledge and understanding.
I’m already anxious to get back on the Subutex because with its absence I’m beginning to experience a lack of interest in life, bowel problems, digestive problems and all the rest.
Thanks in advance for your feedback and interest.
