Under this post, please reply with links for sites that provide information about drugs of abuse. The point of this forum is to stay away from using recreational drugs, so please try to avoid sites that are ONLY about that side of things. On the other hand, most addicts have a curiosity about substances, and I think that is OK in 'limited doses'. I DO recommend that if you are early in recovery, you may want to avoid some of the links here.

Certainly a controversial entry, but any site related to substances has to have this reference.

A Russian site that is a 'must-see'-- initially focused on ecstasy, this site has morphed into a huge trove of information. Sort of like a 'drug Disneyland'.

I never even heard of the erowid site till now, it is quite interesting, but I have been to each of the others, and a few more. I read and read. And then I found this site. I am trying to eventually read every thing on this forum, suboxforum.com. I found sometimes that some of the discussions on other website's forums are very great indeed for information gathering, but some are just non-sense. You do not see that non-sense part here which is great. If there is something that is questionable here, that is pushing it I think.

I do not want to link the couple others that I have seen, just because of some of the information that is spread on there. The doctor is correct, some newbies to recovery may not benefit reading some of those things....Thanks

Everyone should check out the sites Dr. Junig posted above anyway! Good Luck!

Dr. J,

Was reviewing the poppycock site and found some thing I wanted your take on.
Here's the side effects for Bupe/Suboxone:

Side Effects

* Pain relief
* Sedation
* Nausea
* Vomiting
* Dizziness
* Headache
* Constipation
* Sweating
* Insomnia
* Urinary retention
* Miosis
* Confusion
* Euphoria or dysphoria

Here's the side effects for morphine:
Side Effects

* Pain relief
* Euphoria or dysphoria
* Mood changes
* Reduced anxiety
* Sedation
* Itching
* Nausea and vomiting
* Decreased libido (sex drive)
* Constipation
* Facial flushing
* Vertigo

I don't know if these are in any particular order (each list's side effects), but I find it interesting that they both have many of the same effects.

I understand Suboxone is a strong opiate, but perhaps you (or someone else) can explain why there isn't a greater difference between the two. Example: Euphoria (although it's at the bottom of the subox list.) Are these in general rather than specific to the sublingual usage?

Sorry if these are really silly questions.

Still checking out some of the other.
Oh, and thanks much for sharing these. Lots to discuss!

Melissa
