 Post subject: Anyone tried or is using once a month injection?
PostPosted: Mon Jan 15, 2018 3:51 pm 
I’ve read about the new form of buprenorphine where it’s injected once monthly and supposedly the drug is released at a steady rate for 30 days.
I can see many benefits,if it works,so I’d thought I’d ask if anyone has tried the new form or is currently trying it?

 Post subject: first week on subs, need some advice
PostPosted: Fri Jan 12, 2018 1:51 pm 
This is my first week on Subs (never taken before). I'm coming off a pretty high roxy habit, over 200mg a day for the past 3 years. I inducted myself on Monday and it took 16mg of Sub to fully control my withdrawal. The next day I took 12 mg, Wed and Thursday I took 10mg seems like at least for now, 10mg is the minimum I can take to keep withdrawals away, however ...

 Post subject: Problems And A Pretty Good Doctor (Finally!)
PostPosted: Sun Dec 24, 2017 10:56 am 
So, it seems like 2017 has been the year of the slip-ups and backslides for yours truly. It started with the levels of Suboxone being too low in my urine and twice, (once during summer and again last month), of it not even showing up at all even the metabolite which I’m still confused about, and turned into me experiencing cravings so that I slipped up a few times, (more than a few times.) The ...

 Post subject: 1/8th of a 8 mg own how many mg of sub
PostPosted: Mon Oct 30, 2017 12:14 pm 
How many mg of Suboxone is 1/8th of a 8 mg sub film? Just curious because I have been taking a full 8 mg in the morning noticing I was not getting the initial feel I was was so I took 4 mg and that was like starting over. That was @ 5:00 am. I just took 1/8 and I’m wondering will this be enough to pick up my mood since I had been feeling ...

 Post subject: How do I go from two doses a day to only one?
PostPosted: Sun Oct 22, 2017 12:00 pm 
Hello everyone. My name is Lance. I've been on the sublingual suboxone strips for 3.3 years now.
I currently go to a shady doctor that is more interested in making money than his actual patients (a story for another day). However, he is all I have- in terms of a sub doctor.

Anyways, I am in a dilemma. My doctor cuts my dose about every 4 months down a mg.
I am currently prescribed 15 ...

 Post subject: Brand Loyalty
PostPosted: Mon Sep 18, 2017 8:15 pm 
Just wanted to pose a question to the group as answers out there in the Googlesphere vary, and often contain the same scatological maledictions found in only the worst YouTube comments. That question is this:

Has anyone noticed a significant difference in effect or absorption between Suboxone and any other branded or generic pharmaceutical compound of the same ingredients?

Reason I ask is that my insurance will only cover me for Zubsolv, of which I'm ...

 Post subject: Stress and Over Use
PostPosted: Sat Sep 16, 2017 4:29 pm 
This came up in my Mr. Brownstone Effect post a while back, and something I continue to struggle with on a day to day basis is this presence of stress in my life. At present, I'm the chief breadwinner for my family. My wife does some sidework which has been increasing lately and alleviating some (but by no means all) of our financial stresses. I work full time though, 40 hours a week. And on ...

PostPosted: Fri Sep 15, 2017 7:24 pm 
I guess this is more of A tough decision than THE tough decision. And at the risk of repeating myself from my Mr. Brownstone effect post in this same forum category, I once again find myself in the same position of being low, almost out of my prescription a week before I'm due to get it refilled. I had again promised myself that last month would be the last time, and again, I've fallen short ...
