Hello to anyone reading this post!
I have been on Suboxone for 19 mos. now. i have been feeling like I don't feel my subs. anymore. I am thinking of tapering myself off. I haven't had any relapses since I started this treatment, but the feelings Im starting to have may soon drive me to it. I dont want to talk with my DR. because Im afraid he will throw me into inpatient treatment. Does anybody have any advice or a similair story? I feel really lost. :cry:

What do you mean when you said you don't feel the sub anymore? Aside from the first few days, I've never "felt" anything. Just normal. I think the answer to your question depends on what you are expecting sub to do for you.

It's normal as the body adjusts to taking Sub daily that you don't "feel" it. From what you seem to be saying it sounds more like you need to increase your dose rather than go off. You seem to imply that you are having the urge to use drugs. Please do talk to your doctor. S/he can't throw you into rehab - especially since you haven't relapsed. Let us know how it goes.

Welcome to the forum! I'm glad you found us. I agree you should talk to your doctor. That is what they are there for. You haven't relapsed so you are doing well. You should be telling them when you feel like you want to relapse. Addiction is just like that. They should know this and they are there to help you. In my experience, the more honest you are with your doctor the better you will feel and the less anxious you will be. It is probably making you want to use even more that you feel you can't talk to your doctor about it. It would me. Glad you are here.

Hi penders and welcome to the forum. Have you posted an introduction yet? I'll be looking out for it.
