Hello I have two questions actually.

My friend is detoxing right now of suboxtone. It is her 5. days now.

Actually the problem is she has double diagnosis.

One is cronic depression and another one addiction healing which she needed to taking suboxone.

Right now she is trying to leave suboxon and it is her 5. day. The problem is while she detoxing of sub, she is having double depression. She is taking Cipralex while she detoxing of sub, which is helping a little bit to her, but not much.

Does anyone have any advice, what should help?

And another thing I want to know is, did anyone try Theta healing, if so, did it help?

thank you very much!

Digging up from a couple months back.... is the poster still around?

As an FYI... stopping buprenorphine (or any opioid), the person already has huge odds against her. To decide when/whether to stop, I look at a combination of factors-- age, employment status, stability on buprenorphine, use of other substances, sleep pattern, relationship status... and MENTAL HEALTH. Someone struggling with depression is in NO position to stop buprenorphine; stopping buprenorphine will surely, definitely, make the depression much worse (in the short run at least-- and maybe the long run). If the time is not right to stop buprenorphine, I encourage people to practice taking it correctly, once per day, and dealing with any cravings that come up with whatever is to be used as the treatment plan during the eventual taper-- when the cravings will be much worse.

You will be better off, when you eventually get to the right time to stop, if you gain some time with the addiction truly in remission, on stable buprenorphine treatment.

This is my situation BIG TIME , I have been diagnosed mild bipolar , my Suboxone is scripted by my psychiatrist .... He's my Suboxdoc so to speak..... In the 4 yrs it took my neck to be surgery worthy, my bipolar problem was being treated with the tramadol I was taking for major arm pain because of a bulging disc at C6-C7 .... When I first started Suboxone we tried 5 or 6 antidepressants , over a period of 2 years, they killed me , made me soooo tired , always crabby , almost lost sight of living ... Now I just take my 2mgs of Suboxone a day and deal with being a little tired now and then , mornings are still so tough for me to get going ! But you take my Suboxone away from me and I won't even have the energy to take a shower let alone go to work , I would not even want to drive ..... Oh yes , I am very very dependent on my Suboxone ..... Mike
