 Post subject: Introducing myself & Askng for HELP
PostPosted: Sun Apr 22, 2018 9:56 am 
Greetings Everyone:

I'm desperately looking for ways to get through the first 24 hours. I've had a little interaction with Ashlee through PM only because I wasn't sure of the guidelines on this site. She has been great.

I desperately need as much help and as many suggestions as I can get.

My psychiatrist wrote me a Suboxone script for 8 mg BID. He cautioned me to wait 24 hours and gave me the script. ...

PostPosted: Sat Apr 14, 2018 4:19 pm 
Hello, I just started this program three days ago. I had been going to pain management for ten years due to a back injury, which led to surgery and then spinal deterioration. I stopped going to pain management almost a year ago because I can't afford it. Needless to say, coming off all that stuff was not only hard, but over the past year, impossible, for me anyway. I couldn't handle the sickness. I finally ...

PostPosted: Thu Mar 15, 2018 3:26 pm 

I am a new member of this forum and I want to explain my situation as it is somewhat different than the norm. I am on Suboxone at 6 MG a day broken into 1 MG strips by me through the day. The reason I take it this way and the reason I am on Suboxone is for Long Term Pain management. It might seem controversial but many are doing this. Taking smaller doses ...

PostPosted: Thu Mar 15, 2018 9:33 am 
Hi everyone,

My name is Emma Whitford and I'm a reporter based in New York City. I spoke with Dr. Junig this week, and he suggested I post here.

I'm currently working on a story about Bupe and telemedicine for a news outlet launching this month called the Opioid Institute. The story will dive into the federal government's increasing interest in expanding access to telemedicine, particularly in rural parts of the country. One idea is ...
