was a bit of a stud. I lucked out and got an appointment on a day's notice. Inside the old, old office building...was an army of young girls (20-25)...all with jet black hair and chests that spoke to me. Let's just say....it was obvious what kinda girls THIS 78 YEAR OLD sub doctor liked. He said the ENTIRE STAFF WAS also in his suboxone program. His main practice is hormone therapy, however. I think he finances his research with opioid matters.

my habit was: 480-560mg of OC a day...

my duration: escalated over five years...after i graduated college it got worse..and hit that milligram mark in Grad School at Virginia Tech.

There was no official inductions, as he knew i took 8mg of suboxone on sunday.

The prescription: 16mg of Subutex (he favors subtex...kinda odd? thoughts?)) 2X 8mg daily.

The cost was 425.00 today, and he wrote a two week scrip.

I wonder how my body will deal with the Naloxone/ Naltrexone conversion in going from suboxone to subtex?? The suboxone i was taking was from a friend. Anyway, 2 hours after filling it ((169.00$) for 2 weeks worth...i feel MILES fucking better. Good enuf to make a meeting tonite.

Thanks for having me guys..i plan on posting a LOT....oh, and go gators and my virginia tech hokies.

Gator,

I'm glad to hear the induction went well and that you're feeling fine. Also, welcome to the forum, we're glad you found us. I hope you find as much support here as I have.

Lastly, this post is us in two different places. To avoid confusion, we should probably delete one of them before people start responding to both of them. Just reply here or PM one of the moderators and we can take care of it.

Again, glad things went well for you.

i'm interested in knowing if people think either suboxone or subtex are/is more effective than the other?

They should both be equally effective. Suboxone is buprenorphine and naloxone whereas Subutex is only buprenorphine, minus the naloxone. The naloxone is used to prevent IV use of the drug and is utterly inert when taken sublingually. Occasionally is does cause some people to have headaches. I've also heard that the taste is a bit different though.

it certainly lacked the flavor of the orange suboxones. This had more of a chemically clean taste ((white/round))...instead of the "Vitamin Orange" taste that we allll love to hate:)
