PostPosted: Tue Jun 27, 2017 3:50 pm

I don't understand how this could happen but now my doc wants me to start doing randoms and sub counts. I'm compliant with my meds. Though some days I take 3 other days 1 per my doc depending on ...

PostPosted: Wed May 24, 2017 6:28 pm 
Hello. My husband is on methadone for pain, he has been taking a high dose. After being with the same pain doctor for over 10 years his pain doctor wants him to to go on suboxone. He assures him this will help his pain. He has severe pain, both knees need replacement, his back needs a fusion but he is not a good candidate for surgery.

 Post subject: Slip and getting back to Sub
PostPosted: Wed May 10, 2017 12:06 pm 
Hi, I wasn't sure where to put this since there is no "what were you thinking" section. I'm really unhappy with myself right now, but I want to get back to recovery right away.

I have an important question and then I'll give a little backstory. My last Sub was 4mg about 36 hours ago. During that 36 hours I have taken 16 Percocet. How long do I need to wait after my last Percocet ...

PostPosted: Wed Apr 12, 2017 1:01 am

Felt nothing I read your old post telling me there was probably bup on my receptors and if I used under these same conditions I ...

 Post subject: Withdrawal in less than 24 hours?
PostPosted: Fri Mar 17, 2017 6:41 am 
I've been on a slow taper - over 2 years, I've gone from 6mg/daily down to 1mg/daily. My last step down, from 1.5mg to 1 mg, is the first time I've noticed what felt to me like withdrawal symptoms.

I've always taken my Sub first thing in the morning, once a day as recommended by my doc. A few weeks ago, when I dropped 0.5 to 1mg, I began having sleep issues. I was able ...
