 Post subject: Back on Suboxone and back here to tell you all about it
PostPosted: Sat Jan 21, 2017 5:28 pm 
Hi folks!
Some of you might remember me from waaaaay back when. I was on suboxone from 2008 until I weaned myself off 6 1/2 years later. I did fine throughout my sub treatment and for the last 2 1/2 years....until my chronic pain worsened. And I do mean it really worsened. During this same period, I got really sick with sinusitis and bronchitis. My PCP gave me a hydrocodone cough syrup and I accepted ...

 Post subject: how to measure COWS when you've taken meds to suppress sxs
PostPosted: Sat Jan 14, 2017 6:59 am 
So my doctor said a lot of people struggle to get to 24-36 hours, and she gave me the following meds to help get through it:
- toradol, tramadol, carisoprodol, lyrica for pain
- lomotil for diarrhea
- zofran for nausea
- xanax for anxiety
- Sonata for insomnia
- clonidine for something (I'm not sure what)

I've taken all of them as prescribed except for the Sonata and Clonidine - I'm already too drowsy. ...

 Post subject: How to ask my doctor to switch me from suboxone to subutex
PostPosted: Mon Jan 09, 2017 5:48 pm 
I was just switched from bupe strips to the generic Suboxone/ naloxone due mostly because I couldn't afford to pay $230/ every 14 days.
I was so nervous to ask him to switch me from strips to pills. It Took me over a year to get the nerve to even ask him. I suffer from severe Rheumatoid arthritis pain (im 35) and I can be prescribed opiates. But i have been clean for 3 years ...

I'm new here, I'm looking around and I'm not sure where to post this question. I'm sure it has been asked a bunch but I'm just not finding the answer I'd like. Please forgive me if I am regurgitating an age old question or something.

Anyhow, l think I'm ready to get off my medication. Been on hydrocondone since 2009 about 100mg a day. I want to do a quick detox with suboxone or Subutex ...

Hi all

Just wanted to say hello. I've been on subutex for 4 years and have stabilised after a very chaotic period in my life and it feels like the right time to quit. I've got down from 16mg to 6mg over a few months with ease. The drop to 4mg has brought some mild WDs but nothing too bad.

Plan to gradually taper down to 0.2mg over the next few months and then take ...
