Hey enembe welcome.

Do u consider urself an addict? I'm asking this because it's kinda looking like ur having trouble stopping percs. As fas as withdrawal from sub, I'm not sure about taking it two weeks and having withdrawal....possibly. How long were u taking the percocet? 15-30 mg a day can definitely get ur body used to having these opiates and u will absolutely start getting sick if u don't take them. Ur symptoms do sound like withdrawal symptoms. U may be on the edge of being able to stop with minimal symptoms but if u keep going, ur going to eventually experience full blown withdrawal and cravings. It's hard to say without knowing more background information about ya but imo yes it sounds like ur experiencing some withdrawal. I don't know if it's from percs or both.

I hope someone else can help answer this too, I know I wasn't a whole lot of help.

enembe,

When I read your first paragraph about using Suboxone recreationally it creates an image of you that says you really don't want to stop messing around with drugs, you just happened to find this site while researching the word Suboxone and decided to join and post.

There is no answer to your post. You will either end up where we ended up or something worse perhaps. Nowhere in your post did you ask for help with stopping opiates. It sounds more like a sentence you'd write into a diary, not something you'd say in a recovery forum. And that is what this place is. A recovery forum. Just about every member has been through hell and are seeking some guidance or advice on how to get well. As a majority, we use Suboxone as a recovery tool, not as a way to get a buzz like you seem to be doing.

Come back when you finally get your arse kicked from doing drugs.

well said.

Opioid dependence is progressive. Enembe started with a low dose of oxycodone, and progressed to higher amounts of mu-receptor activation, using buprenorphine.

Enembe, you are taking substances that activate mu receptors. Some of the substances are stronger than others. Some last longer, and some are metabolized more quickly. They ALL have the same problem; they all create cravings to take more and more. If you don't take 'more', you feel 'blah' and have diarrhea. Many people try to keep taking more, until they get to very high doses of potent mu activators. Everyone who does that ends up disappointed-- because you can't keep taking more, forever. At some point you can't afford 'more', or you can't find 'more'.

Buprenorpine, AKA Suboxone, is different than other mu drugs in that it has a ceiling effect. People who take buprenorphine properly learn to live without needing 'more'. Usually, proper use of buprenorphine includes having the medication prescribed, and learning to tolerate life's ups and downs.

As Rule said, you may not be ready yet. I hope you survive long enough to get to that point. We've all been in your position-- and we all know how much it sucks. I recommend that you ask people on this forum for guidance-- and they will help you get to a better place.

Hi Enembe, Welcome! May I ask you what your goal is? Are you taking subs to get high or to stay away from percoset? Is the suboxone prescribed to you? I am not clear from your post what you are trying to find out. Hope to hear from you!
