 Post subject: How fast does tolerance develop?
PostPosted: Sun Apr 22, 2018 12:31 am 
And on that same note, dependency as well. Say for instance you have two of the 4mg strips. Would it make much of a difference if you were to take the 8mg over the course of 2 days (4mg per day) as opposed to 2mg per day? Or what if instead you chose to use 0.50 per day (or every so often) until you ran out. Would that be a better plan as opposed to ...

PostPosted: Fri Apr 13, 2018 1:11 pm 
I made a post (around this time last year, I believe) entitles, The Mr. Brownstone Effect. In it, I alluded to the lyrics of the eponymous song and their assertion that one can do a little until a little won’t do it and so the little becomes more and more. It’s somethjng I’ve struggled with throughout my history of addiction, really with every substance I’ve taken either to quell or combat my addiction. I put ...

I have a question regarding splitting films. If I am trying to get a 1 mg dose. does it matter if I take an 8mg strip and divide it evenly 8 times or if I take a 2mg strip and cut it evenly in half? Will I get the same 1mg dose in each scenario?

PostPosted: Wed Feb 21, 2018 12:51 pm 
Those I’ve corresponded on here know I’ve had issues holding to my prescribed dose, even through three doctors and three or four increases. Most recently, I’ve been set at three 5.7/1.4mg Zubsolv tablets a day, which should be plenty, but alas, has not been. Those who know me also know I have issues with anxiety, most of it stemming from a hectic, demanding work environment, the rigors of grad school and my wife’s fatigue problems, ...

I'm 5 days clean off of heroin, I was taking 1/4th of a 8mg strip every 12 or so hours the first three days and I was fine, now I have to take the 2mg about every 3 hours or I get really deathly sick. I'm not sure if its the dosing or I'm doing something wrong

 Post subject: Switch from Suboxone strips to Zubsolv tabs??
PostPosted: Thu Jan 25, 2018 4:17 pm 
Hey everyone!

So the last couple months I've been thinking about asking if I can be switched from suboxone strips to the Zubsolv tabs. Basically because i honestly feel like the citrus/orange chemical taste of Subs has ruined my taste for certain foods. I've tried masking it but i know it's messed with my taste buds. When I heard that Zubsolv is a mint flavor it peeked my interest. However then I read that if ...

 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 ...

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 ...
