 Post subject: Suboxone Withdrawal
PostPosted: Sun Apr 23, 2017 11:13 am 
I started doing 3-4 mg suboxone daily about a month ago. Im planning on stopping and was wondering what to expect for withdrawals. I've dealt with full on heroin withdrawals a few times but never subs. I'm aware they usually last longer but I am hopeful that because I have used for a shorter amount of time and in somewhat smaller doses they won't be crazy bad. Anyone who could share a similar experience would ...

PostPosted: Sat Apr 22, 2017 9:13 pm 
Newb here. Been physically addicted to opiates for about 10 years. I suffered from non-Hodgkins Lmphoma and was prescribed 10 mg. Percocet for around 7 months at 4x a day. Needless to say that I was addicted pretty quickly. Always have had an "addictive" personality. If it wasn't coke it was booze or vice versa or at the same time. I've met very few drugs I didn't like. Well, enough about my history.

Went the ...

 Post subject: Getting close to final jump off a sub taper, at 0.25mg
PostPosted: Tue Apr 18, 2017 9:38 pm 
Hi guys.

Very quick: 2.5 year recreational habit, ended with oxy ~300/day or H 10-15/day. One CT attempt 1yr ago, relapsed one month in. Thirty days ago made the decision I wanted off opiates, and also made the decision that yes, I wanted this more than anything I've ever wanted.


The taper: About 35 days ago, started subs by myself at ~4mg, tapering about 25% every 5 days, now at day 1 of 0.25mg. Physical ...

 Post subject: Gabapentin?
PostPosted: Thu Apr 13, 2017 12:31 am 
I've been on and off various opiates for about 20 years and so sick of it. Tapered my sub down to 0.2mg and now trying to stop. I have 2 weeks off work so I'm hoping that's enough.
2 days ago I didn't take my morning dose (I split it) but by the afternoon I was really sick and not coping. I took about 0.05mg. Yesterday I took 0.05 in the morning and again in ...

 Post subject: 15 Years Methadone to Suboxone -March 2017
PostPosted: Fri Mar 31, 2017 1:50 pm 
I was on 40mg of Methadone for 15 years, then pain doctor said she was not going to prescribe anymore (Jan of 2017). So on March 1st I began - she prescribed 16 mg Buprenorphine a day and I felt like this was WAY, WAY too much. I immediately went down to 4mg (which was adequate induction for me) and now am around an average of 2mg on Day 31 of taking this JUNK> I ...

 Post subject: First day skipping 1 mg of Suboxone, Weaning off
PostPosted: Mon Mar 27, 2017 11:36 am 
Hi everybody! Well the Dr wanted me to give skipping a day between doses after I got my Gabapentin and Clonidine in my system. I've been taking this meds as prescribed for 5 and a half days so when I woke up this morning I decided today was the day. Sometimes I take my Suboxone as late as 12 noon and it's going on two. I am a bit obsessing about it. I have told ...
