PostPosted: Wed Mar 22, 2017 10:43 am 
Hello all. I am going to be attempting to quit subs after being back on them for 6 days after a 4 month heavy heroin binge, but have been on opioids daily for over 2 years. I will explain my detox here for anyone else going through a similar situation. I have generic subutex and am snorting due to only having 2 8mg pills, may be able to require 2 suboxone films if needed. More ...

 Post subject: After 6 years on Subutex, I finally tapered down to 0.25
PostPosted: Fri Mar 17, 2017 12:18 am 
My introduction how I got on Subutex:

This is my first post, and I wanted to get involved with others who are going through the same thing. My husband, and mother are trying to help, but they relate not feeling good from something simple to withdrawals like really you have no idea what I go through. This is not feeling slightly tired this is way more, and they try to relate but just can not! ...

 Post subject: Cold Turkey From 12 MG
PostPosted: Wed Mar 01, 2017 4:21 pm 
I've been on 12mg sub for about 5months and due to the cost of these things I just decided I'll suck it up and quit entirely. Last took a dose about 8hours ago. I've read both sides, it's a terrible level to go cold turkey as well as someone has completed the 12mg cold turkey and felt fine in two weeks, it was never that bad.. so I want to ask if anyone can give ...

 Post subject: Stopped for 4 weeks-tonight may have broke me
PostPosted: Fri Feb 24, 2017 9:39 am 
So as quite a few of you know I went cold turkey off 8mg close to a month ago by using Kratom, etc.. Well a new development has arisen...the Kratom absolutely is destroying my stomach...not a second of sleep last night and throwing up well over 100 times. I'm in Austin and trying to find a Dr. today since my former one just vanished into thin air. I don't have $300 for induction(especially missing work)..I ...

 Post subject: Had to quit cold turkey..advice?
PostPosted: Wed Feb 22, 2017 8:23 pm 
Had to stop Suboxone cold turkey cuz health insurance no longer covered prescription and it cost too much. Was taking 8mg twice daily for 7 months. On day 19 today but still having lots of pains, is this normal? Any idea when physical withdrawal symptoms will stop or start to get better?

 Post subject: Jumping off at 2mg.
PostPosted: Mon Feb 20, 2017 11:23 am 
I know there are similar topics but I guess Im just nervous as hell since the decision has been made to jump from 2mg starting this Friday. I have been on Subs for around 2 years and other than a brief time where i went up to 7-8 mg a day about 4 months ago the previous 1.5 years I took right at 1-1.5 mg a day. After hitting 8 mg over the span of ...

PostPosted: Fri Feb 17, 2017 8:05 pm 
I have been on Suboxone for 7 years. I had a several year opiate addiction. I finally got on Suboxone. I have no doubt it saved my life, not to mention job, reputation, etc. My Dr had me on 16 mg / day. When I ask him about getting off of Suboxone he said "some people stay on it for life"
Well I tapered down to 8mg about a year ago. Then I finally got ...
