 Post subject: Drug Problem in Portugal
PostPosted: Wed Sep 27, 2017 1:04 pm 
In my local newspaper on Sunday they had an article (which I cannot find) about how Portugal decriminalized drugs 14 years ago. The author did a comparison to the USA drug policy and showed which country was doing the best job.

The numbers were astonishing. A 75% drop in overdose cases in Portugal. If you get caught with a small amount of heroin or whatever they issue a ticket and put you in an education ...

 Post subject: Currently in Colombia
PostPosted: Sun Jul 09, 2017 9:30 pm 
I am in working in Colombia currently and I am a USA citizen. I take multiple medications which one happens too be suboxone. I know it is legal here as long as I have a prescription in the US, which I do. However, since I am on a contract I can't really afford to pay hundreds of $ to return home for 1 day then leave again to just get it. I have never had ...

 Post subject: Pharmacy how rude
PostPosted: Tue Jun 27, 2017 5:57 pm 
So, I had my mother in law to go pick up a 3 day supply of my suboxone strips and she's always trying to find ways to get it cheaper and who can blame her right they are exspensive I know but it was more exspensive buying it elsewhere. Well the pharmacy had the nerve to tell my mother in law that it would be cheaper if I was on pain pills? I'm like really? ...

 Post subject: Questions about the generic subutex with 8/Arrow marking
PostPosted: Mon Apr 03, 2017 11:47 pm 
Hello everyone. I finally saw a sub doc and am deciding to stay on maintenance for a bit at low doses. I'm prescribed 8mg daily so I can make this last me a looong time. I'm used to the Roxanne generic subutex, the bigger white pill with 54 411 print on them. I got the newer generics with an 8 and an arrow on them. They are MUCH smaller and I think I definitely took ...

 Post subject: Travel to Honduras
PostPosted: Tue May 10, 2016 8:32 pm 
Hey guys/ladies, I'm new here so please forgive any unintended failures of protocol.
Okay, so anyhow, I'm visiting Honduras for a week coming up on the 21st of this month and I'm hoping all goes well during my anxious stroll through customs. I do not have a doctor's letter (can maybe get one if necessary) but I have my original prescription per cvs as well as all the paperwork they give with it these days. ...

 Post subject: Just travelled to China and Hong Kong on Suboxone
PostPosted: Fri Apr 01, 2016 1:24 am 
It can be done. Mainland China is one of the strictest places in the world when it comes to narcotics, including Suboxone. If you're planning on travelling there drop me a PM and I'll fill you in.

 Post subject: Suboxone in Canada - Carries and dispensing fees
PostPosted: Fri Mar 18, 2016 5:39 am 
I was on suboxone a couple of years ago and got all 6 of my carries for the week in the shortest period of time.

However the pharmacist still charged me 7 dispensing fee's even though they were only dispensing it one day of the week and I have carries for the other 6. But it was the same as if I had zero carries and had to go every day for supervised dosage

I ...

PostPosted: Tue Jan 19, 2016 7:04 am 
I’m a newbie here and needs to relocate to Toronto next month on suboxone and I’m worried about this. I’m not sure whether the it’s possible to move there with suboxone. I have the prescription ready from my doctor and I have also consulted the help of an overseas moving company in Toronto called Armstrong Moving who would help me to move my things safely. The thing I’m only worried about is the suboxone. Any ...
