Hello, My name is xxxx ;) I have been on sub's for a little over a year. I started at 32mg and now I'm down to about 8 sometimes less or more when the addict comes out in me. Just kinda in limbo and wondering if I'm a lifer or what. Anyone need to talk just hit me up!

Hey Rudy, 'hello' right back at you. :D

Whether you're a lifer or not is a decision that is yours to make. Personally, I think there's no shame in staying on a prescription drug, if it helps keep someone functional, and the alternative is active addiction.

Speaking for myself, however, I want to be done with Suboxone and all other prescription drugs. I want to experience life at 100% once again (for the first time in many years), and I don't believe opiates let me do that.

Hi Rudy and Welcome here!

After only a year on Suboxone you may not know whether or not you'll be on it for life. I've been on it 4 years and figure I'm a lifer at this point. Then that thought will come into my head about trying to get off it and I'll weigh the pros and cons again. There are three or more drugs in my life right now that I'd like to be rid of. Sub is one, Effexor is another.

Each person has to make their own decision about long term use. Do you see yourself still on Suboxone in two to three years?

Glad to have you with us,

r
