Hi everyone, I've been on subutex for about 2 weeks now at EXTREMELY small doses. Probably about 0.3 insufflated daily. I called around yesterday looking for doctors that prescribe subutex and not just suboxone. Finally I found one. The appointment is going to cost $175 and the subutex will cost a bit too, but definitely cheaper than suboxone. In my old state medicaid/alohacare paid for my Dr. visits and my subutex. Damn California. I am going to be visiting the Philippines soon. I have decided that I will finish tapering off after my trip because I really want to be able to enjoy my time w/ my family out there and not deal with any WD's/PAWS. I have done a lot of research about doing this and on an official Philippines website it says that methadone, buprenorphine, and other opioids for pain are allowed by travelers as long as we have a note from our doctor and a copy of the original prescription with us. They are after shabu/methamphetamine users in the Philippines. Opioids are seriously NON-EXISTENT in the Philippines. Doctors are not allowed to prescribe them at all. It's very rare for anyone to have opioids, even cancer patients rarely get them. I believe that I will be fine and doubt that I'll even be questioned about my meds. My grandmother recently went out there with her 15mg roxy script w/ no problems, so I hope I'm good lol if anyone here on bupe has traveled to the Philippines in the last year please let me know how it was!

That's great to hear. Let us know how it all turns out. You taught us a lot about the laws there. No opiate pain relief? What the heck do they do, give them alcohol like the old west? Remind me never to get hurt in the Philippines!

Right!? It's crazy how hard it is for chronic pain patients in some countries. It's tough in the US too, but nowhere near that. I'll definitely be making more posts when I'm back for support and help tapering. Have a good night/day Rule62!
