 Post subject: Switching from Methadone to Subs.
PostPosted: Wed Apr 19, 2017 4:40 pm 
Hi all. I'm 36 and have been on 40 mgs of methadone for the last 15 years, prescribed to me to treat chronic back pain. 4 10 mg pills a day. Last month, for the first time ever, my Dr randomly drug tested me and I got popped with dope in my urine. It was not a good day. I had been sniffing dope a couple time a week for roughly 8 months for a ...

Hello everyone. So I have some questions. I'll tell you my story first. About 6 years ago I suffered from wounds received in Iraq when a bomb went off on the vehicle I was in. I was rushed back to the states where I saw many doctors for different things. But my favorite doctor was my pain doctor. He prescribed me 90 oxy 20s a month for breakthrough pain and 120 perc 10s. This went ...

 Post subject: Stabalizaton Issues?
PostPosted: Fri Apr 14, 2017 12:03 pm 
Greetings from NC,

I joined this forum because I found Dr. Junig's contributions extremely enlightening, as well as feeling refreshed to see the advice coming from a source that knows firsthand how incredibly harrowing the addiction cycle and withdrawal itself can be. (Next paragraph skips personal history). I have recently been inducted with suboxone and am having an unusual experience from the majority of examples my various forum-lurking has found. I am your usual "suspect", ...

 Post subject: Methadone --> Suboxone
PostPosted: Mon Apr 03, 2017 11:57 pm 
Hi there. I recently switched from methadone to Suboxone. Short story: oxycodone for ~3 years, heroin for 2, a year on Suboxone (during which I frequently relapsed to brief heroin/oxy use), then 2 years on methadone at a high dose of 86 mg. Tapered to 28 mg over 5 months with relative ease. My last dose at clinic was 28 mg Tuesday morning 03/14. My Suboxone induction was Sat 03/18 at 4 pm for 102 ...

Hello all
I have lurked on this site for several years. I'm a male in his 40s with 3 children
Brief history, a car accident led me to being prescribed pain pills (hydrocodone then oxy codon)
I eventually began to abuse and buy more through "friends"
I own a successful business, so money has not been an issue.
2 years ago, having had enough, someone gave me some sub strips, and I was able to ...

Heading in to hopefully get a new Zubsolv doctor tomorrow. I was asked to bring my current medications with me which is going to involve presenting an empty box because I ran out very early this time. I've posted about my dose in another thread, but to be clear, I'm currently--and have always been--prescribed two 1.4mg Zubsolv. As an addict, I was consuming around 250mg of hydrocodone daily. At least until my fill ran out ...

 Post subject: Need help after a 2 week relapse..
PostPosted: Fri Mar 24, 2017 7:49 pm 
Hi all. I went to detox and then rehab at the end of Jan. After several failed attempts at getting clean at home with subs.. (I could never wait the 24 hrs) I finally just went to detox. Things started going very well but sadly after getting out of rehab it wasn't very long until I relapsed. "One time" is now two weeks later and I'm back to shooting close to what I was using ...

 Post subject: First day back on subutex
PostPosted: Fri Mar 17, 2017 7:41 pm 
Hello everyone, today is my first day back on subs after a 4 month dope binge. My usual dose is very small, like 0.5-1mg a day. I've taken at least 3mg so far and am still feeling pretty achy, but mentally I feel a lot better. It's been over 24 hours now and I took a tiny piece of sub at around 20 hours because I was definitely over 26 on the COWS scale. It ...
