PostPosted: Tue Apr 18, 2017 4:32 am

PostPosted: Wed Apr 12, 2017 1:01 am 
I study the posts Doc but keep messing up. I stopped using H on Friday. Did not use Saturday and started induction 2mg at a time. I went to 8 when I felt halfway good but not 100% I broke down on Monday and did 2 bags of weak dope. 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 ...

 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.

I want to preface the rest of this by saying that yes, I take it exactly as prescribed. I am on the film, not the tablet. I am only on 4mg/day. I take 2mg ...

PostPosted: Tue Feb 21, 2017 9:47 am 
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:

I previously sent an email to Anthem via your mobile App and am not sure the agent who responded to me understood the questions or issues ...
