 Post subject: Question about PAWS... Refering to what Suboxdoc commented
PostPosted: Tue Dec 05, 2017 6:17 pm 
Hello old friends. Instead of high jacking TeeJay's Sublocade thread, I figured I would just start a new one and ask Suboxdoc would he please elaborate on his theory about PAWS being an ill defined syndrome at best. And especially if he thinks, "at least some of the people labelled with PAWS are actually struggling with major depression caused by the detox", then could we possibly minimize this depression a great deal by getting on ...

 Post subject: Meds that make stopping a cake walk
PostPosted: Sun Nov 19, 2017 1:48 pm 
Hi, forum.

Like a lot of folks, I was terrified of the day that I would be jumping-off Buprenorphine/Subutex/suboxone/Zubsolv. I tapered down to 1mg Subutex, and then my doctor gave me a few prescriptions of comfort meds. They've made the days following the complete absence of Subutex barely noticeable. I just wanted to share that list for those who are able to go to an understanding doctor:

Gabapentin
Trazadone
Ondansetron
Dicyclomine
Clonidine

Remember the Twilight ...

Hey everyone, long time no see!

A little background, I have a little over 3 years clean & on subs (8/30/14)... (no relapses in these 3 years) ...I have slowly gotten down to 4mgs/day and have been taking that for a few months now. (I take all 4mgs in the morning) My goal for the future is to taper off completely (and possibly get on revia once I get the subs out of my system, ...

 Post subject: My Suboxone taper plan
PostPosted: Tue Oct 17, 2017 12:03 pm 
I tapered down from 2mg to 1.5 for a week then to 1 mg. I noticed that when I went down I felt a bit uneasy for a few days and so I took it a few hours earlier. Now that I've been down to 1mg for a few weeks I feel perfectly good. I talked with my doc and he said that's normal for coming down to feel that way. I am aiming for ...

 Post subject: Using opiates to get off sub
PostPosted: Tue Oct 03, 2017 12:25 pm 
I know I'm going to get crucified for saying this but oxy got me off subs. I was on nothing but subs for at least 2 years. Did pills for 2 weeks straight and came off those with some sub for 3 days then cold turkey. It wasn't as bad as you think. The 2 weeks got most the sub out of my system then I used a little for just 3 days to get ...

PostPosted: Sat Sep 23, 2017 12:20 pm

I was on 2 mg to start and quickly went to I mg and stayed there for most of the years (5). This past March I went from twice a ...

 Post subject: Seven Weeks Today and Sleep Has Returned
PostPosted: Fri Sep 22, 2017 5:44 pm 
Today marks 7 weeks since jumping (Aug. 5th). I had been doing a personal journal since day 1 but as days began to feel the same and nothing really new to add, I got lazy and have paused for at least 8-10 days. My wife and I just got back from a mini vacation to D.C. We left Monday night and got back before noon today. My only blood niece lives nearby to D.C. and ...

 Post subject: 6 weeks post Sub - what are thoughts adding Low Dose Naltrex
PostPosted: Fri Sep 22, 2017 4:29 pm 
I am six weeks since last Suboxone. Just jumped slow taper not for me.. Doing well so far except for some intestinal issues and fatigue. Also developed powerful hyperosmia, which is like super human ability to smell (a condition associated with benzo withdrawal but I feel like bupe withdrawal can be added). I was just wondering if a low dose of Naltrexone would help speed this along or are all the opiate receptirs empty and ...
