 Post subject: Mobile Site? POLL
PostPosted: Sun Feb 19, 2017 7:11 pm 
Gosh, what a day... I changed a tiny bit of code on the mobile site, and the mobile site went down-- and worse, when people tried to access it, that messed up their ability to get the desktop site.

So I have the mobile site turned off right now. I'm trying to decide-- does everyone use the mobile site? Please answer the poll to give me a sense of how important that site is.

It ...

 Post subject: Site Work
PostPosted: Sat Feb 18, 2017 1:00 am 
I will be working on the backbone of the forum this weekend-- started about an hour ago, and will be doing a couple more things tomorrow. There has been a drop in performance the past couple months, related in part to the size of the database after ten years.... and also because the site isn't being directed through a cloud service that was supposed to be speeding things up. When the internet settings are changed ...

 Post subject: Tramadol
PostPosted: Wed Oct 19, 2016 9:44 pm 
Docs tend to think of Tramadol as less of a problem than other opioids. Today the Wall Street Journal carried a very interesting story of how Tramadol has become a huge problem for the rest of the world. You can find it here-- check it out: http://suboxonetalkzone.com/tramadol.pdf

Goodness... it always surprises when things suddenly fail and bring the site down. Crashes are rarely caused by something that I did, or someone else did--- but instead they just happen without any explanation. Today, at least according to the company where I have a VPS hosting account, the DNS settings-- the set of numbers that direct traffic to every site on the internet--- started directing traffic to the wrong place. I haven't touched the ...

 Post subject: Congress Raised the Cap?
PostPosted: Wed Jul 20, 2016 8:23 pm 
Congress submitted a Bill to Obama that 'might' allow nurse practitioners to prescribe buprenorphine, and 'might' raise the cap. I won't repeat everything-- but see my post: http://suboxonetalkzone.com/congress-acts-on-opioid-dependence-ugh/

And then someone tell me what the heck the Bill says!!

Noticed this story: http://www.ideastream.org/news/npr/486419277

Funny how the film was promoted as a huge advantage of pills because of reduced diversion potential, and now we've come full circle...

I'm waiting to see if the fear of diversion results in adoption of Probuphine, at a cost of 5 grand per dose. Probuphine is an implant that lasts 6 months-- a length of action that will appeal to patients, but will turn off prescribers. Indivior, the manufacturer of ...

 Post subject: Article about addiction
PostPosted: Sat Apr 09, 2016 8:09 pm 
I encourage people to check out this article negative towards buprenorphine and positive towards Vivitrol as a 'cure' for addiction: http://www.wkyt.com/content/news/WKYT-Investigates--A-cure-for-heroin-374949801.html

Consider leaving your opinion in the comment section, and if you do, put a link back to the forum. Many of the comments suggest that we need to get to the 'problems' behind a person's addiction; my point there is that ANYONE can get addicted to opioids, including 'normal' people.

Lot's of ignorance out ...
