 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.

 Post subject: Suboxone metabolite missing from UA results
PostPosted: Thu Mar 09, 2017 9:55 am 
I've been prescribed suboxone for a few years now. It has done wonders for my recovery. Recently, however, I have been getting pressure from the doctor. In two of my recent tests (not back-to-back), the suboxone metabolite norbuprenorphine was not present.

So I have been on this med now for almost 3 weeks and love it. It's saved my life. Below is the text of a message I sent my insurance company if anyone had any similar experiences or feedback.

To whom it may concern at Anthem or Express Scripts:

PostPosted: Sat Feb 04, 2017 10:28 pm 
Hey All,

I just started taking subutex and I have some questions if you don't mind?
